Fuse interview: a great shooter that's doomed to fail?

OXM - Watching this console generation wind down is kind of like watching a game of musical chairs. Insomniac's sci-fi cover shooter Fuse is one of the few remaining games that hasn't found a seat yet, pegged uneasily for release between April and June. It doesn't take a genius to unravel EA's difficulty here - Fuse is an unproven IP that appears to trade (and in fairness, often does trade) on received ideas, beset by doubts about style since its inception, and launching into a market that's thirsty for new hardware. It's an extremely intelligent shooter, boasting all sorts of beguiling little eccentricities, but one suspects it'll take more than smart firefights and novel weaponry to break into the big time. (Fuse, Xbox 360)

I'm still willing to give this game a try once it hits the 20 dollar price range. I'm guessing it probably will once the game is out on the market for about 6 months. Because I don't think this game will succeed in sales.
I don't know anyone who is giddy or super-excited to buy this game.
