First look at Sunset Overdrive, exclusive to Xbox One and coming later this year

Sunset Overdrive

After being teased at E3 last year, we haven’t heard much out of Insomniac Games about Sunset Overdrive. Today they blew the lid off the game and you can check out the trailer below to see it in action. Warning: if you’re a fan of games like Jet Set Radio, Dead Rising, Crackdown or Ratchet & Clank be prepared to get excited.

There’s really only one way to describe Sunset Overdrive: fun. This game looks like it’s going to be nothing but fun and we can’t wait to play it. Earlier today we learned about three new games coming to the Xbox One this year. Looks like we’re in for a year full of gaming.

Sunset Overdrive is set to be an Xbox One exclusive. It’s an open world shooter that’s due to hit your console later this fall.

Anyone else out there looking forward to Sunset Overdrive?

I feel for you there as some people can't afford the X1 (gift cards work here). But I want to have a reason to leave the 360 behind. If GTA V did come out for X1, I'd stay there in a heartbeat.

Magical things are set to transpire between Microsoft and Insomniac Games based on that trailer. Can't wait.

+Watchdogs (I know not exlusive)....Still on Titanfall myself but now I'm going to be *FORCED* to split my time... So many games, I need a clone...

^This, it looks like this is going to be another generation dominated by M rated shooters.... sad.

Who said the Xbone is expensive and if they wanted a top box, they can get it for cheap? Go get yourself that box and a ps4. Lets see how cheap it is, and it doesn't come with Kinect.

There's no reason to buy and PS4 and a top box. A PS4 alone would do nicely. And not everybody wants to talk to their television.


I was not interested at all in this game from the trailer.

But now... whoa. It looks awesome.

It's like a Titanfall pilot fighting Halo's Flood with some Team Fortress and Looney Tunes added in for good measure.

Yay another zombie game to cater for the masses

When did the world of gaming become so boring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last gen, when Nintendo completely disconnected itself from the core gaming market and M-rated shooters became the new "cool."

This game looks amazing. A far cry from all the dull gray and brown games we get so often. This feels truly next-Gen and can't wait to play it.

Jet Set Radio was a fave of mine. Still have my Dreamcast and that disc. I can't wait for this game.
