At Gamescom Microsoft announced the white Xbox One bundle with Sunset Overdrive, and DualShockers caught up with Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price to ask him about it, and to get more information on the upcoming game.
I heard the phrase "waxing poetic" for the first time a few weeks ago. Now, it's everywhere. Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, I guess. It's just such an odd phrase.
Isn't Sunset Overdrive coming to PC?
Not at the moment but Ryse went to PC so maybe it will happen later on.
It's not Xbone exclusive, just for now because they're publishing it. It could go anywhere for that matter but probably not for awhile.
Its 100% an X1 exclusive. It wont come to the PS4 as MS is the publisher. It may make its way to PC but that could be a year from now if ever. And before you bring up Mass Effect, that only came to PS4 after EA bought Bioware and worked out a deal with MS.
As Phil commented and insinuated on his defence regards timed exclusivity of tomb raider the ip is owned by insomniac and they are free to release it on other platforms once the terms of their agreement are met.
@ThePope: Mass Effect was published by Microsoft too, right?
But Phil did say that they will be looking to find ways to keep games they fund exclusive to Xbox one . So with that outlook things can be changing which is good .
The terms were that the first game remain 100% exclusive to the XB1, future installments they would make the decision on, hence insomniac owns the IP.
I'm sure it will eventually but not PS4 or Wii U. Just look at this statement Phil made regarding Tomb Raider. "I'm not trying to push gaming down on any other platform. Clearly, I'm not going to invest in something to make games great on other platforms. Windows stuff I will. But not on stuff on other consoles. That's 101." - P3 It shows that Microsoft doesn't mind investing in a game, as long as it remains WINDOWS PLATFORM. Xbox One is running Windows, so I'm sure Tomb Raider, Sunset Overdrive, will make its way to PC. Just like other games MS has invested in ( RYSE, DR3 ) Now that is still a win/win for MS and their partnership with the specific studios.
Can't wait until mine is shipped. I hope Insomniac's next game isn't Sunset Overdrive 2 though I think this dev should be the ones (even though they aren't 1st party) to resurrect Blinx and Kung Fu Chaos.
I believe here next game is a reboot of ratchet and clank along with a movie....but this will be ps4 exclusive it will probably be announced at e3 next year
Their next game is Ratchet & Clank. See you on PS4! :)
@software lover Was thinking the same thing. If the relationship between insomniac and ms remains good then we will definitly see them colaborate on more ips in the future. Ninja theory recently stated their eagerness to work on a sequel to kung fu chaos with MS,I actually believe MS will agree cos we need some party games..still waiting for a new fuzion frenzy. Blinx would be great though. Insomniac would make a great blinx and conker game meanwhile Pressplay would be my choice for a banjoe game.
"Waxes Poetic"?? What in the fuck does that suppose to mean?
It looks nice in white. :)
Sony Fanboys seem to be so better at Microsoft nowadays. I gotta say, Phil Spencer is doing the right things.
