15 Reasons Why Sunset Overdrive Is Now Xbox One's Most Wanted Title

"Every game has something to deliver that makes its followers go nuts over it. But what if the game itself that promises to deliver something substantial, is nuts itself? That roughly sums up the game Sunset Overdrive. It’s an open world third person shooter that conforms in no way to the established paths that games of the said category follow."

... the art-direction reminds me a lot about Tekkonkinkreet, a gorgeous animated movie.

I'm not sure if I like the very 'americanized' vibe the characters display, though. It's a bit too much 'xtreme, dude!' for me...

The game seems like fun though, and it's from a great studio, so I'm a bit jealous that it's only coming out for XBO, and not for PS4.

Just wait for Sunset Overdrive 2

uptownsoul1200d ago

Reason number 1: It's the next major exclusive on Xbox One…I mean the next major exclusive on any platform is "Now the Most Wanted Title"

Why wait for sunset overdrive 2 if the first one hasn't even been released yet?

Mr Pumblechook1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Sunset Overdrive does look like a lot of fun but it's pre-Christmas release date means it will be competing with a lot of other titles for gamers' attention and spending money. And as a new IP that makes it harder to compete with established franchises.

The sad part is, I'm not sure if thats even coming to PS4, depends on the deal they have with Micro, by the time the X1 drops to a price, im comfortable with, SSO will be old, maybe SSO2 will be new concurrently.

I just want to play another Insomniac creation that's done the RIGHT WAY.

The reason why I say that is because EA ruined and robbed Insomniac's creative prowess. They are free to do what they please with this title and it truly shows.

I'm just glad MS didn't pull off an EA and let Insomniac, be Insomniac.

Charybdis, Becuase SO is only on the XB1, the way things are going for MS I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if SO2 was multiplat

That's why I said "Just wait for Sunset Overdrive 2"

tgunzz1200d ago

@hellsvacancy, you would rather wait for a possible ssod 2 than to play this awesome looking first edition??

Hellsvacancy1200d ago


Well yeah, i'm not going to buy an XB1 just to play a game i'm not overly bothered about

choujij1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

From what I've seen so far, I can't really say interested in it. But if when it releases it turns how to be excellent, then I'll probably try out the inevitable port and/or sequel.

tgunzz1200d ago

@ hellsv, I get it now....

4Sh0w1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

Uhm, I really hate the clickbait setup just to see all the reasons so I didn't bother. From what I can tell Sunset Overdrive looks like its going to be a lot of fun but I'm willing to bet Halo MCC is going to be X1's most wanted title this holiday season, I know its a collection of old games but its probably the best deal I have ever seen on consoles with so much content for a very popular franchise all for $60.

Loved the audio and visuals of Tekkonkinkreet. That look plus my gut nostalgic likening to jet set radio keeps this on my radar. Not too serious but deep enough to be challenging and fun. Good luck insomniac..... pity ill have to sit this one out for now.

Reminds me of Dead Rising but with stylistic jumping, and mutant zombies.

ghostface91200d ago

dont get me wrong this going to be a great title and I will purchase it day one but halo master chief collection is easily the most wanted exclusive this year.

ricochetmg1200d ago

Is it me or I just don't get this game hype.

The_Eternal_one1200d ago

To me this game isn't even worth $60. I'll most likely wait till it's around $39.99. I want QB!!

700p1200d ago

How is it not worth 60 bucks?

falviousuk1200d ago

Because its on the xbox and not the PS4

If this game was on the PS4 and not the xbox the usual troll should be shouting about how amazing it looks, the gameplay looks fantastic and fun etc etc

Same goes for just about every game that is on the xbox and not on the PS4.

If they were swapped around they would suddenly become great games.

GW2121200d ago

I'm not a troll and I don't care for this game at all. I am way more excited for Halo MCC. If this game turns out to be good, I'll pick it up dont get me wrong. I just don't get all the hype for it. Just my opinion. I hope it turns out great.

Major_Glitch1200d ago (Edited 1200d ago )

@falvuo It's funny, the only people bringing up PS4 in this discussion are the ms fanboys. And they're doing it to make "Off-Comment" remarks. Trolls right?
OT: SSO is the most wanted game on the xbone?! That's...uh...good? Don't get me wrong, the game looks good, and I love me some Insomniac, but this can't be the biggest exclusive coming to the xbone in the near future.
@GW12 Agreed. I don't understand the hype. However, given MS history of over-hyping games, I'm not surprised.

You're not alone, I just don't see it being a great game. I've watched many gameplay videos and it looks pretty, zany, funny, but at the same time soulless, if that makes sense. There's just something that seems missing.
