Poll: Is Sunset Overdrive a system seller? (71 votes)

yes 25%
no 75%

Would you buy an X1 for it? I want to say yes, but nothing really about it screams AAA blockbuster or anything. It looks fun from the videos, but it also doesn't seem like there's much beyond what they showed. What do you think, SW?

For me? Nah. Cool looking game, but if it's on my list of exclusives to play. If it comes to pc, i might pick it up one day.

For the average person? No. Honestly, besides games like Halo or Uncharted, most exclusives aren't system sellers anyway.

Not in the slightest. QB has a better chance with the right publicity.

It's no Halo.

It sold me. So far I'm liking what I see.

It isn't halo, or gears.. hell I don't think it will generate more buzz than Titanfall.

It really depends on how much MS promotes it. The game looks fun, but letting people know it exists is up to MS.

Its a new IP and I've never seen it on TV so it is not a System Seller.

Highly flawed logic. It hasn't been on TV because it isn't releasing for 3 months. You don't start this early with TV ads.

Depending on how good the reviews are , it could definitely potentially be a system seller. There's really a lot riding on how the game is overall and how it's received.

I'm South African.... Theres been very few TV Ads here about games. So I'm pretty comfident it won't sell systems, besides can a Shooter sell consoles ? Obviously excluding Halo. That one can.

Of course shooters sell consoles. Are you serious? Gears? Killzone? Halo? Even Resistance? Also to call Sunset overdrive just a "shooter" doesn't accurately describe what the game is about.

Then they should make a proper trailer then... Because all I saw was shooting....

Or you should watch more gameplay , because shooting in a game doesn't make it a shooter. The game is not a "shooter".

Going by console sale, Insomniac has to holds its special powers for PS4.

I don't think its a system seller, but will be reviewed well and a damn nice excluisve addition to their console. Quantum Break, I think, could move Xbox Ones.

Not for me . The game that will move lot of Xboxes will be Halo 5 .

The graphics and colors look beautiful. The game play looks frantic and fun. I'm definitely going to buy it but I don't know that it's a system seller. The problem is that it's a new game and gamers aren't sure yet if it's going to be something they will enjoy over and over again. I personally think it's going to have the addictive qualities of a League of Legends. I mean the trailer makes this game look really really fun! I can see sitting back and playing it for an entire afternoon.

Nah. Nice looking game, but it's a new IP with somewhat specific appeal.

It's a game to buy if you already have the console....not a game to go buy a console for.

It looks awesome though and I hope the X1 owners support it.

No but I played the multiplayer and it's a fun solid game. It's a reason to have a Xbox One though. Will be getting this day one. Hopefully they advertise it well so the game itself will sell too.

Sunset Overdrive probably won't affect Xbox One sales in any meaningful way.

I was at San Diego Comic-Con Xbox Lounge. I got to play Sunset Overdrive, Evolve, Evil Within and more while I was there. They had Fable Legends there but I think they were having technical issues with the TVs or something so I didn't get a chance to see that. I also got autographed poster from the Halo Nightfall cast and devs and a limited of 450 lithograph Dead Rising 3 super hyper alpha or whatever that DLC is called too. Really fun event.

No it's too quirky. Doesn't make it a bad game though and it seems like it has solid mechanics and lots of fun to be had.

No. New IP's are rarely system sellings. I can't remember the last New IP that actually moved a couple million consoles.

If 7 more consoles sold is a system seller then yes

Its on Xbox so no. The average consumer is smart enough to know that the ONE is not a good product despite having some good software. I cant wait until Christmas. I think sales will be like this leading up to Christmas and over Christmas:

PS4 vs ONE

1.5/2:1 in North America

2.5/3:1 World Wide

Publishers are starting to see where the money is and where they should be investing their time and it is not with MS. Ryse aint even an exclusive anymore and I will predict neither will this.

I was interested in getting an Xbone for this game. However after watching the gameplay videos it looks like deadrising on a skateboard, I don't like deadrising. It also looks like it is an extremely repetitive game. So for now st least I have changed my mind on getting the bone based on this game.

No, it's a title that enriches and compliments the Xbox platform - but I'm far more willing to wait it out for a PC version or pick it up when it's less expensive once an actual system seller is available.

it looks cool but no way in hell im buying an xbone for this game. the only game that will get me to buy that POS console is Halo 5.

Doubt it. Titanfall wasn't and that was a fresh take on the most popular genre among Xbox gamers.

Have to say no, it looks interesting for a Dead Rising clone but it won't make people want to buy X1's.

Guess we'll find out in October. But I didn't buy my X1 strictly to play SO. But it was one of the upcoming games along with Titanfall, Halo 5, Quantum, Gears, Fable legends, Crackdown along with Killer Instinct and DR3 already being out that made me buy it.
