Why Sunset Overdrive Deserves More Hype Than it's Getting

Insomniac's new exclusive title for the Xbox One should be getting a lot more attention, due to its immense promise. (Sunset Overdrive, Xbox One)

As far as im concerned its get exactly the amount of hype it deserves (up to this point).

We dont know much about the game, we have seen very little gameplay that is relevant to the story or game modes of the game.

Everyone seems to be very interested in the game because it looks very different, very unique, very colorful, and attractive. Most of us are intrigued by it, and as such, it has as much hype behind it now as it should.

We will see more at E3 im sure, and that is when the hype will either rise (or fall) when we find out more of what the hell this game actually is.

I agree. The hype its got for now is great. Its a common topic in most xbox forums and threads and so little is known.insomniac has much more to share with xbox fans I.e multiplayer,characters, weapons, a release date(which is still months away) and MS hasn't even started marketing yet that aside xbox fans have also had quite a lot to get hyped about in the past few weeks and even more stuff to look forward to in the coming weeks i.e gwg, kinectless xbox one, halo5 guardians, mc collection, E3 etc. There's a lot happening right now so its easy to think there aint any hype for sunset overdrive but that isnt true. My pals and I are so hyped for this game. I know people buying the xbox one just for this and the Master chief collection.

Believe the Hype and Believe in the Xbox One.

It's not getting hype because it's not coming out on the PS4. If this was a Sony exclusive we would be talking bore about it.

I want the game for the reason that this looks like an old school first party Dreamcast game with next Gen visuals

I feel the same way as the title states but I also feel that the game doesn't come out for another 6-8 months and there are other games that will come out before it...

With that said I'm super hyped for this game and am impatiently awaiting the fall line up it looks like it's going to be a good one...so many games so little time

Edit: after reading the article it is a very good read and he makes great point and I do agree with him but I still understand why the hype has not built up yet because the game doesn't release for another 6-8 months

so tired of hype...show us more and hype will generate itself. there is still too much we dont know.
tf ..(as over hyped as it was) showed most of what it was. a twitch shooter with mechs. sunset overdrive we seen the footage, some weapons and stuff but what about the character? more on the story and protagonists. the mp features and playable characters..and so on.
a fps can be played by anyone...but like infamous this game will appeal to a smaller crowd and will generate less hype.
after e3 1 of 2 things will happen:
1. they show tons of stuff for the game and (depending on what we see) will generate hype ..or
2. get out shined by other games at e3 and lose the little hype it has now.
its sad because it looks cool..but this e3 may well be HUGE for all consoles.

Time for some grinding mutant shooting fun. This game looks to be coming along nicely. Don't need articles to hype me because i'm hyped about this game enough as it is. Looks awesome!!!

The game should speak for itself.

It doesn't need hype. This is how people hype a game and then get disappointed.

Most people buy their games based on reviews. If the reviews don't correlate with your expectations, we'd be the first to call the game a flop.

The game looks like fun. Let's just wait and see.

I'm sure an E3 stage demo will do it wonders. Can't wait!

I think the game looks good. It's ironic that I have a PS3 but I've never been interested in Resistance (don't like FPS) and have never been inclined to buy any of the R&C games, but now I'm getting a PS4 insomniac release a game that interests me exclusively on the Xbox One lol

I think people are just being cautious about this game since Insomniacs last couple of games didn't deliver on the hype, Fuse was a real let down.
Sunset Overdrive looks really cool but it is also more than 6 months away so plenary of time to build hype.

I think it has got a decent amount of hype.

It deserves more hype than washdogs for sure!

Looks like a infamous ripoff to be honest. Don't see special about it. Looks like a wiiU game.
SolidDuck  +   154d ago
A lot of it has to do with insomniac. I think the first resistance was the best one they made. Rachet and clank on ps3 was good, but the playstation 2 ones were better. Fuse was decent at best. The fact is there track record hasn't been that great lately. Everyone talks about them jumping ship from Sony to MS. That's cause there games weren't selling very good, because the quality of there games has been going downhill for a long time now. Maybe sunset will be different, but when's the last really great game they've made? My guess based on there trend, sunset will be decent to good at best. How much hype does it really deserve?
