still waiting for this to one day come to a PlayStation console

lifeisgamesok799d ago

I'd love a Sunset Overdrive 2 for PS5

Sony won't stop insomniac but I don't know if at this time insomniac wants to revisit this IP. Our best hope is a remastered version of the first game with all the content and improvements/tweaks

IG could quickly whip up a version that takes advantage of the DS controller and 4K/60 performance of the PS5. Then hit everyone with a full on part 2 that we have been waiting for. IG had the sequel all planned out.

I am with you I hope sony let's bluepoint handle the remaster because they can do it quickly before their next big project

SierraGuy799d ago

Didn't MS publish this game?

neutralgamer1992799d ago (Edited 799d ago )

Insomniac owns the IP and sony owns insomniac. Also this way sony can get real data on what's the interest level around this IP since it didn't do well on xbox

badz149799d ago


MS published it but the IP still owned by Insomniac and now ironically Sony's. I said "ironically" because they went to Xbox because they wanted the IP ownership as they don't get that with PS, but in the end, Sony bought them and the SSoD IP too.

It's a good game. I hope mpre gamers get to play it. I would replay a remastered version.

Nuetral, agreed. It's all a out who owns the rights and developers. People meed to keep this in mind.

Most underrated ?? ...have you heard the Last Guardian and Gravity Rush 2

remixx116799d ago

Yup especially GR2, game is incredibly unique

I did like it, but for me the most underrated game of last gen is probably The Order 1886.

lifeisgamesok799d ago

I agree The Order 1886 and Days Gone for PlayStation are the most underrated

Ryse and Quantum Break for Xbox

Also Ghost of Tsushima should've been a 90 scored game IMO

giovonni799d ago

Ryse and Quantum break were great games Those two need sequels

Petebloodyonion799d ago (Edited 799d ago )

The things that pissed me the most about Quantum Break is on how the media already had their opinion about trashing the game instead of reviewing it.
The worst offender was Peter North from Gamespot that basically trash the game
then proceed to praise Control as one of the best game.
The funny thing was that the same flaws he saw in QB became great strengths in Control.
( The broken fighting mechanics became great, collecting stuff now fun, the arena fight a joy).

Shane Kim799d ago

None of those games were underrated.

SpeedDemon799d ago

GoT aside, If anything I'd say those were overrated titles that recived more praise than deserved just because they're were hyped up exclusives. I mean have you even played Ryse? Apart from the graphics there isn't anything good about it.

I loved the order... but it was not underrated.
The gameplay needed more life and diversity via what was offered.
Huge potential with little effort to correct,,but the game deserved the low scores.

I want a sequel very badly... but you still have to call out the issues to take it to the next level.

RavenWolfx799d ago

I really enjoyed it. I am disappointed it hasn't had a sequel.

hulk_bash1987799d ago

Hopefully its able to find new life on the PS5. It definitely has the potential to be a successful franchise.

potatoseal799d ago

Most underrated is Days Gone. Well... at least most underrated by critics. PS fans love it

lifeisgamesok799d ago

I was so glad that most of us PS guys supported Days Gone and found it to be a great game

Petebloodyonion799d ago

The critics decided that it was thrash the moment they saw the game.
" Another generic white male protagonist"
" Do we need another Zombie game"
" Another open world game set in a apocalyptic era"

I remember saying multiple times before the reviews that the game would score an average 6-7 because the media already decided that it was trash in a similar way to Quantum Break.

lifeisgamesok799d ago

Yeah, both games were slammed with negativity early on

MadLad799d ago

PS fans love Godfall too.

Nofamboyism799d ago

days gone was good , sunset overdrive was great , godfall ?...should have been named god-awfall

Jericho1337799d ago

Do you love it because it's a good game or because it's an exclusive? Because I can't envisage you bashing any game made by Sony.

Chriswheeler22799d ago

I love it because it was a great game. Not perfect by any means, a solid 8/10 on ps5 imo.

potatoseal798d ago

Days Gone is friggin awesome. I did every single thing possible in that game and I'm waiting eagerly for the sequel. Does that answer your question numb nuts?

Jericho1337798d ago

Have I touched a nerve petal? 🤣

Maybe next time don’t generalise the PS fan base - they didn’t all like the game. Plus you don’t have to be a PS fan to like this game either.

So yeah, moronic comment.
