Xbox Exclusive: Sunset Overdrive Ready to Roll into E3

Xbox invites you to tune in June 9th, 2014 to see their 25,000-lb steel behemoth arrive, in the opposite of style, at E3 2014. The green carpet unfurls 9AM at xbox.com/e3.

The story is too old to be commented.

pretty much the dumb fun i'd expect from that game

Might be fun, but it's far from what was promised with the initial showing

"it's far from what was promised with the initial showing"

How so? It looks pretty much like I expected it to look.

*shrug*

I think this game will sell more XB1s than Titanfall did.

asmith23061165d ago

Lol, first Titanfall was the game to sell X1's, now Sunset Overdrive will sell more X1's than Titanfall. Give me a break. The Xbox fanbase is all about shooters like COD, Gears, Halo, so you would have thought Titanfall would have done the job there. This looks a million miles away from any of them.

@ asmith - I never claimed TF would sell XB1s. The opposite in fact. I just think SO's brand of silly fun will do more to sell XB1s than TF did. That's all. I'm not part of the XB fan base so it doesn't matter to me either way. It's just my honest opinion.

Well for starters it doesn't have that Pixar feel to it, the animations feel choppy and lack fluidity, and the visuals themselves aren't in the same level as was hinted in the first trailer, which is usually the case with the game industry, but for me at least it was the main thing I liked about it.

Overall I'm not saying it's not gonna be fun, or that it sucks, I'm just saying, it doesn't look as good as it looked when it was first announced, I'd be seriously surprised to see it becoming a console seller..
but E3 is almost upon us, we will soon find out :).

The reveal was CG, which Insomniac themselves have stated.

"The reveal was CG, which Insomniac themselves have stated."

Ok, so how was anyone basing their expectations on that then?

Are you speaking of this particular video, or the gameplay reveal?/ Because the gameplay reveal is exactly what was shown initially except the character.

tkato1165d ago

No, this trailer is just hypeware, I'm talking about the original reveal VS the gameplay video that recently came out.

Not even a hardcore sony fanboy could get behind what you're saying.

everything that was initially shown first has been displayed in the current gameplay. And now confirmed 8 player co-op only means the insanity is real.

thats what I love about xbox 1, they have great games with multiplayer appeal making paying for live at least worth it where as sony keeps delivering single player games. Why even pay for ps+ if that's the case?

E3 is going to be super charged and even with Sunset Overdrive already shown the anticipation for the game is still high.

good job Insomniac, way to drop weight and still be healthy.

I agree! Xbox Live has always been an amazing multiplayer experience.

"where as sony keeps delivering single player games. Why even pay for ps+ if that's the case?"

Because PS+ offers free games monthly, and so does Xbox Live. The difference is that Sony's free games can currently be played on 3-4 platforms (psp, vita, ps3, ps4) Even if you don't own every Sony console as I do, the free games still make PS+ valuable.

Wouldn't mind that type of experimentation with other AAA companies

XStation1165d ago (Edited 1165d ago )

That's awesome! I'm guessing at E3 there's going to be special things like this for certain games, kinda like a Museum.

One more day hurry the hell up already
