Sunset Overdrive – Weapons Arsenal “as large as the largest Ratchet arsenals”

OnlySP: One of the main things that Insomniac Games is known for is their creative weaponry found across all their game titles with the Ratchet and Clank series being at the forefront of their creative skills. Sunset Overdrive continues their zany outlook on weaponry as we noted in our first details article yesterday. (Sunset Overdrive, Xbox One)

"the arsenal of projectile weapons in the game is as large as the largest Ratchet arsenals."

Awesome. That's great to hear.

I hope they put in some type of arena area to earn extra stuff like they did in the original PS2 games.
lifeisgamesok  +   198d ago
And Insomniac said there are many types of enemies in the game as well

This game looks like a lot of fun! Too bad I won't be able to play it on PS4 when I get mine after the summer, the only left is to look forward to the next R&C game on PS4.

Insomniac's weapons are always tons of fun so awesome that one forgets to use all of them, it always happened in R&C kept using the same 2 or 3 despite of having more, everybody find their favourite ;)

Yeesh... wonder how much weapon variety we'll see. Knowing Insomniac it'll be huge.
Qrphe  +   198d ago
Yes, so stoked for this!

Although I've never played R&C or Resistance, I know Insomniac have a knack(hope I don't get sued) for making crazy weapons.

Huh?, Where did he say it was boring on playstation? Maybe he just got into gaming last gen and only had a xbox 360, not because he hated ps just only owned 1 console to play Halo or whatever with friends. I don't know if that's his situation but theres lots of reasons why someone has never played R&C, Resistance or any exclusive on a particular platform= none of which suggest they hated or thought those games were boring, some folks just have tight budgets or like I said many other reasons for not playing a certain game before. Now if he prefers xbox only as his platform of choice he can enjoy games from Insomniac too, like ps only folks can enjoy games from Bungie.

Personally I've owned all platforms every gen and I've played all Insomniac games, I like them and it didn't bother me which platform they catered to, but this gen given I've decided only to buy an X1(for now) because I don't have as much gaming time as I used to. I'm just glad to play SO, not because its exclusive but because it looks like a kickass game and I fully understand I'm going to miss out on some ps4 games like infamous SS, The Order, that's fine well until I change my mind an get a ps4. You see its just about making choices without negativity toward the other.

Where the hell did he put down PS? Why the hell are you people so defensive!!
He never even mentioned being an Xbox fan, for all we know hes a PC gamer, or a Wii gamer...or hes just lost on the internet with no real reason to be here.
Either way your comment isn't justified.
Bundi  +   198d ago
You are on a rampage accusing people of all sorts of things aren't you? Funny thing is that your accusations are baseless, you attack every Xbox fan that likes this game and claim they didn't like Resistance or Insomniac or Infamous or whatever fits your current agenda.
malokevi  +   197d ago
why don't you have some salt with your salt?
randomass171  +   197d ago
Dude come on, don't be so antagonistic. All he did was praise Insomniac. I don't have a Wii U, but I can still think it looks like an exciting console.
PainUzumaki  +   198d ago
As a PS4 owner If E3 is looking good for XboxOne and they have tons of new games coming soon. I might have to pick one up for this game but I still cant pay 500$ for this. Hopefully theyll announce a kinectless Xbox
typittt69  +   198d ago
Good on you for being a gamer. I own both and it's awesome.
randomass171  +   197d ago
So many disagrees for being excited. Shame. I feel the same way to be honest. I cannot wait to try out Overdrive as well as The Order and all the other sweet games that have been announced.
Muadiib  +   197d ago
Yeah I'm a pc gamer and I'm on the same page tbh, when both consoles have a decent amount of AAA games and they get reduced in price a bit, (especially the x1, which also needs to sack off the horrible Kinect) then I'll take the leap into this generation of consoles.
Bonkerz  +   198d ago
This game is going to be so sick. This definitely moved up to the top spot of upcoming games for me. This and Quantum Break = me happy lol.
Sm00thNinja  +   198d ago
I paid $600 for a PS3 and $500 for my Xbone I've always been too much of a gamer to let price keep me from great experiences. Call me a stubborn one
Clown_Syndr0me  +   198d ago
I paid full price for both. The hours you get out of them is well worth it.
for £400 I bought X1, i could have gone to the cinema to see about 50 movies instead. Rougly 2 hrs each...thsts 100 hours of entertainment.
My X1 gave that in the first week alone.
Similar to my PS4.
randomass171  +   197d ago
How's that stubbornness? Sounds more like freewill and enjoyment!
B1uBurneR  +   198d ago
I hope the have equality amount of weapon on both X1/PS4 version.. Lord knows I love a big Arse
Bonkerz  +   198d ago
You do know this is an Xbox One exclusive right? PS4 wont be getting this game...
4Sh0w  +   198d ago
Please tell me you're purposely trying to be sarcastic B1uBurneR?
ats1992  +   198d ago
This is an xbox one exclusive its not coming to ps4.
AceBlazer13  +   198d ago
I have some bad news for you if you only have a PS4. We ain't getting this one. Insomniac defected from the PlayStation Nation.
randomass171  +   197d ago
They never defected. They just went multiplatform. For all we know this is the only Xbox One exclusive from them we will see.
mkis007  +   197d ago
As others have said this first entry is an xbox exclusive...but as Insomniac has said; they still own the IP so future installments could go either way. but likely what we are looking at is a Gears situation.
HacSawJimThugin  +   198d ago
From the first trailer at E3, I knew this game was going to be epic and it quickly became one of my most anticipated games. Glad to see that everyone is loving it and I hope it becomes a best seller. Knowing my Xbox brethren and how supportive we are when it come to software, I can easily see this becoming a top seller this year.

I'm hoping for a July/August release. That would make my Summer.
MegaRay  +   198d ago
I am not sure if insomniac has creative ideas when it comes to weapons or other developers just suck at using their imagination.
Seriously we dont need the same weapons in all FPS games insomniac's games and oddworld strangers have the best and only creative weapons set I ever seen while all other million FPS games have the same weapon set
salmon_slapped  +   198d ago
Thats awesome this game is starting to remind me of DR3 but more fast paced
ThichQuangDuck  +   198d ago
This is a game I definitely wish had Cooperative play,but still looks great
blackout  +   198d ago
This game has soooo much that isn't even announced yet. June 9 will be MASTERFUL for Microsoft. This game will hold it's own. Enjoy gaming everyone.

Achieve quality with quantity mind...
Rhezin  +   197d ago
dammit, this game is making me jelly for xbox one. Insomniac always delivers, at least they did when they worked on Ratchet and Resistance. This game feels like they will yet again. Lucky dogs!
