Sunset Overdrive Looks To Be The Sleeper Hit of The Holiday Season

MegaJon writes "Sunset over drive will be out next month, and discussion for it has already started to die down. Games have been getting burned by mass hype with Destiny being the latest example of a good game that couldn’t match its hype. Sunset Overdrive is coming out when a lot of games are releasing and it’s going to be very easy for people to over look this game. So far it’s looking like Sunset Overdrive will be the sleeper hit this season."

I will certainly make it's own unique mark.

I don't recall reading a bad preview yet.

4Sh0w2387d ago (Edited 2387d ago )

Well I certainly ain't sleep on it, thats for dammm sure. SSO looks like a blast to play, so this along with FH2, Shadow of Mordor, HaloMCC, and COD AW are going to keep me so busy I won't bother with much else until Quantum Break.

ramiuk12387d ago

its far from a sleeper when its getting its own console etc.
i hope it gives xb1 a boost over the holiday too.

on another note how amazing does Mordor look.
i only just been hearing loads mention it lately and after looking on some vids on youtube it looks amazing

Magicite2386d ago

for casual gamers both FH2 and SOD bring no hype.

Bigpappy2387d ago

I won't call it a "sleeper hit" at this point. Lots of hype behind it now.

robtion2387d ago

Hardly a surprise, Insomniac are really great developers and this looks like a more adult version of Ratchet and Clank which is an awesome series with excellent gameplay mechanics, story, and presentation.

You have my envy Xbox owners, I'm sure you're in for a treat.

kratoz12092386d ago

Sleeper hit will be shadow of mordor or lords of the fallen

lifeisgamesok2387d ago

Sunset Overdrive is going to be a classic

Aussiebeachbabe2387d ago

9 ps4 fanboy trolls say differently. classic it will be indeed.

poor_cus_of_games2387d ago

Well what about nintendo fans? Pc fans? Not everyone who dislikes this average looking game is a playstation fanboy.

robtion2387d ago

Quite likely. I am a ps4 owner but if I eventually get an Xbox as well I will definitely pick up Sunset Overdrive.

user56695102386d ago

we all know its going to get a lot of hate no matter what. if it scores good its gonna get hate, if not still hate. now if it was an ps exclusive or even a multiplat thats a different story. if exclusive greatest of all time, best gfx ever.

NoremacTheGamer2387d ago

I can agree at the moment. But after seeing how hype came around shadow of mordor right before it's release because if great reviews so far I expect the same to happen to this game for those sleeping out on it lol.

Lucreto2387d ago

There has been hype for a good few weeks for Middle Earth. Amazon had it in the top 20 for the last few months. Sunset Overdrive is not in the top 100 yet.

KakashiHotake2387d ago (Edited 2387d ago )

I would say the title of "Sleeper hit" belongs to Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, nobody even saw that one coming. Even now people are still overlooking it.

robtion2387d ago

I saw it coming and am glad I was right about it. Really looking forward to playing it.

Kevlar0092387d ago

Pretty sure most people went "Oh look, another LoTR game"

avengers19782387d ago

And it over all pre- orders are pretty low.

Software_Lover2386d ago

I only saw people starting to talk about Shadow of Mordor yesterday............. when the resolution info was released. So many comments went like this "1080/60? I'm definitely getting this game now".

Sunset Overdrive looks fun. I will pick it up day one. One of the rare games I do that with. Halo MCC, Uncharted 4, The Order, Mass Effect (if it's an RPG).

KakashiHotake2386d ago

I think Sunset Overdrive is gonna be great as well, but as far as sleeper hits go I don't think classifies as one. Everybody knows about Sunset even people who don't own an Xbox one like me.
