Insomniac Games achievements in the open world genre with Sunset Overdrive will help them a long way in developing the most authetic Spider-man game of all time.
Sunset is such a fun game and while I'd love to see them make a sequel after they are done with Spiderman, i understand that may not happen due to how the original sold. But.... there is always hope they make a sequel anyway for fan service.
They should approach Sony for making SO2 after they are done with the SpidermanPS4 masterpiece. I am sure game will sell very well on PS4. PS4 gamers enjoy all sorts of games and R&C remake is one of the favourite games this gen.
Well one of the reasons SO dind't sell was because the horrific launch Xbox had with all the DRM and stuff.
@JonnS That's fine when Spider-Man sells 10x as many units as SO did they will be too busy working on Spider-Man 2 to waste time with any Microsoft games.
MS doesn't hold the IP, which is very good news and Insomniac is free to talk to sony about the sequel. "Well one of the reasons SO dind't sell was because the horrific launch Xbox had with all the DRM and stuff." Well, one of the bigger reasons the game didn't sell well on xbox was... it was not named halo, gears or forza.
Or they could work on one for all systems. Why not?
@eon Not a bad idea at all, let's see if we can get SO2 for PS4, switch and PC.
I'm with Brian. I'd rather they don't waste time with SOD while they can do so much better with Spider man or else
I think Sucker punch , the people who made infamous , would of been a better choice.
Sucker Punch also would be an excellent choice for the Spider-man, but SP is making another PS4 exclusive, which means more exclusive games for the PS4. It's a clear win-win situation.
When the rumours about the Spider-Man game came out I thought suckerpunch was going to design it.
Suckerpunch wouldn't of been as good in my opinion as their games have a more serious tone. Spiderman on the other hand does really well with humor and sarcasim thrown in something insomniac has been doing for years fairly well.
@killzallthebeasts You do know Sucker Punch made the Sly cooper series right? And Insomniac made Resistance. Both studios have experience in making the tone of game serious or fun.
Sunset was a fun game. Hopefully they make a sequel.
Game was decent with lame humour, I am sure spidermanPS4 will be 10x better than SO. Glad to see insomniac always improving and hope they can make SO2 much better than first game when they develop it for PS4.
Modi - it seems obvious you hate the Xbox from your previous comment. Sunset was great fun. Get outta here. You said you wanna see a sequel on PC, PS4 and Switch.. not Xbox One. How surprising. Why would you want a sequel for a game you think sucks? Bye, Felicia.
@modiji 10x better eh, so you are expecting a 810 outa 100 on Spider-Man?
"You said you wanna see a sequel on PC, PS4 and Switch.. not Xbox One." Indeed, I said that. Much more deserving platforms where the game won't flop. I hate seeing games flop. "Why would you want a sequel for a game you think sucks" So that the game can improve? Shocking I know. "10x better eh, so you are expecting a 810 outa 100 on Spider-Man?" No, I am expecting Spiderman to blow SO in gameplay, graphics, critical acclaim, reception by fans, sales etc.
Sunset Overdrive proved that Insomniacs has a very good grasp on open world design. It was really fun and had tons of freedom. I hope that experience translate well to Spiderman.
if they released it on ps4 it would have had more sales.
no $h!t Sherlock. If they released it on Mobile it would have had more sales as well as it would've been on more than one platform.
Subtenko - that's false. It's widely known that many exclusives don't sell well on the PlayStation platform. Some games do extraordinary.. others not so well.
Lol who knew that putting any game on multiple consoles would mean more sales
I do not understand that you have 13 downvotes. Telling the true, is difficult to handle by Xboxfanboys.😉
@AmUnRa Ikr, I posted this just to see how many woudl downvote logic, even with 3 comments below be saying "duh" and to them, I will also say....DUUHHHHHH XD there's a dash of salt in this thread for some weird reason, I wonder whyyyyy XD
Loved Sunset Overdrive. A Criminally underrated game, and one of my favorites of this gen. I can see how they could use some of the traversal elements to help with Spider-Man.
They already are. Check the gameplay video and look at how spidey wall runs from one side of the building to the other. Definitely looks like they took inspiration from Sunset in terms of traversal.
Oh I know, just commenting about the article and how I can totally see how they are using the elements... I guess my wording of "could" made it sound like they aren't already haha
Absolutely. That sunset overdrive DNA working it's way into Spiderman in a great way
I never played it but Ive seen only good things and good reviews about it. Certainly not a 'criminally underrated' game at all.
I'm expecting an amazing open world Spider-Man game
I'm not sure that I agree....
I am not going to lie, I got a hard-on when I saw Insomniac Games logo on that Spider-Man trailer last years E3.
Insomniac has a lot of experience in making fun games. I'm looking forward to Spider Man. Especially after the Movie surprised me. I didn't think I would like the new Spider Man movie, but it was great.
Insomniac's pedigree period makes them the perfect choice for Spider Man.
Indeed. Never mind SO, they have the pedigree and have had it!
I'll never get used to seeing my childhood superhero's replaced/killed off to make way for a diversity agenda. Never will, and I'll ~never~ support that crap. ..That's the problem with this, the agenda is so important they can't even wait to hire new writing talent to come up with a ~new~ diverse superhero.. Why do that when they can take a popular character and just gender/color swap em instead, right?.. All that matters is the social justice anyways, right? Wasn't Lara aka Tomb Raider awesome? Or Ellie from TLOU or 2B from Nier?.. Black Panther, Storm, John Stewart's Green Lantern, Cyborg, Vixen, Spawn... The list goes on and on and on. Talent. That's how it's done. ..Not.. Killing Spiderman in the end simply just to replace him with a pro diversity character...... Why didn't they come up with another character in the spiderman universe? He could be the rival and it could go beautiful new places. Can't wait to see the female wolverine/black female iron man, girl thor movies someday... Just wait till the edition of gay Superman. Awesome time to love comics.
oh, ok. got it.
What in the actual hell are you on about?
Sometimes, I really wonder about people who sit and stew about stuff like this.
You know that was in an alt universe right?? And that the main series has never changed from Peter Parker??
in before the racist gamers com---oh....too late. " Talent. That's how it's done. " Well.....you do know that a game can be bad right? That doesn't mean its some sort of um "agenda" it simply means it was a bad game.... No "Right" or "wrong" exist in something that is subjective in terms of art. It makes no sense and can't be measured. I mean....thats like saying "Wasn't Lara aka Tomb Raider awesome? Or Ellie from TLOU or 2B from Nier?.. Black Panther, Storm, John Stewart's Green Lantern, Cyborg, Vixen, Spawn.. smh, see just a way to make way for a diversity agenda" I mean....are some of you folks so dumb, you don't get that what you see as um "talent" someone else can see as "agenda" yet what you see as "agenda" someone can see as "talent"? LMFAO! I mean...other SJW used the SAME GAMES you called "Talent" as having a "agenda". Please bud, no more of the SJW, you are literally trying to FORCE THIS in every article with once again little to ZERO proof on this so called, secret "agenda". "simply just to replace him with a pro diversity character" How do you know that was why that was done though? Do you have proof or more SJW bs? lol " Why didn't they come up with another character" They did, you just don't like that they are a different race.....soooooo yea. Come up with a different character that you don't like and its "agenda" this and "agenda" that lol OH now it was ONLY to add a "pro diversity character". I see.....sooo when did you hear anyone confirm this? Creators no longer allowed to make content now?
Bendis actually kinda did admit it when he made Miles though. That said, he's a supporting character in this game, which is a far cry from the situation in Ultimate Spider-Man to boot.
@Shadow- Not saying you are wrong, but link? Bendis is one of my all time favorite too! I still randomly read Torso from time to time.
"That was the point for Bendis. “Someone had once said to me, ‘When I was a kid, I could only play Spider-Man, I couldn’t play Batman or Superman because my friends would say you’re not the same color, but I could play Spider-Man because when I fantasized about Spider-Man, he looked like me under the mask.’ “That was a big inspiration.” http://www.nydailynews.com/... "Marvel has already surprised fans by introducing a female Thor and having an African-American hero, The Falcon, taking over the mantle as Captain America. And one of the publisher’s breakout hits in the last two years has been Ms. Marvel, a Muslim teen girl. "“I started crying in the middle of the aisle,” says Bendis. “I realized my kids are going to grow up in a world that has a multi-racial Spider-Man, and an African American Captain America and a female Thor.”" http://www.nydailynews.com/... Dude was happy pushing the diversity angle until he noticed people cared more about his character's skin color than anything else, then kinda lampshaded about that and ticked off his base.
I never got around to play Sunset Overdrive since it's exclusive to Xbox One. But if it came to PC/steam I would buy it in a heartbeat. That being said, from the gameplay I seen from Sunset to Spiderman, they are indeed the perfect choice.
Because Insomniac and Sunset Overdrive was never panned by Sony fans as being over hyped and simply not good. The hypocrisy when they actually work on an exclusive for Sony and now they are again relevant.
Like MS fans never panned and called Insominac mediocre when they only made PS games, now that they've made Sunset OverDrive, they're one of the best devs in the world. foh.
got proof Microsoft said that?
I was always a fan of ratchet and clank. Been one of my favourite Sony franchises since the ps2.
Now? The last Ratchet & Clank came out after SSoD...
Why does no one respect the hyphen?
Insomniac are great. SO and R&C make them a great choice for Spiderman...
God the spin. Insomniac made their own experience with the original ips that they came up with throughout their career. Insomniac gave Microsoft their only new good exclusive ip this gen.
Insomniacs is great with or without Sunset Overdrive, they were already proven to be amazing developers way back when they made Spyro.
Sunset Overdrive damn near gave me cancer, I hope their new Spiderman game is better
Replace Sunset Overdrive with Fuse.
Sunset Overdrive was one of my most joyous gaming experiences this gen, or otherwise, and as I've stated many times in the past, I cannot envision another developer being better suited for the Spiderman IP than Insomiac. I cannot wait. I'm very optimistic that we're going to be getting the next great superhero game.
SS OD is a great game and deserves a sequel. If Insomniac is smart they will get Sony onboard for a SS OD 2 and it will sell much better due to the larger install base. Make it multiplatform as well so xbox gamers can enjoy it also. I still play it alot and have all the dlc. It has that Insomniac flair and looks and plays beautifully. Reminds me of a crackdown/jet set radio/saints row mix. The dlc was good and really added some cool areas to the city to explore and combat in. Spiderman looks like a movie on PS4 and I cant wait to get it for my PS4 PRO.
Thankyou xbox beta testers lol!.
"Thanks Microsoft" - Sony
xbox really needs a game with a story of substance, sunset overdrive suffered in sales as a result. Worried with some of their other games they have forgotten this.
I'm glad Sony approached someone like Insomniac to develop this game. And seeing that it's exclusive they can focus on getting the best they can out of the PS4. This is a Day 1 buy.
Yes I agree .. but I wonder how would Spiderman look if Sucker Punch was making it because back when rumors were going around that there's going to be a PS4 exclusive Spidey game I thought for sure that SP would be the ones to make it.
