Will it just be the Mitchell brothers that are playable or the entire family against the machines?

Sunset Overdrive has been on my list of games that might persuade me to get an xbox for a long time now.

It's a brilliant game. Very colourful all about movement and the weapons are great fun. It's basically jet set radio meets ratchet and clank.

Grind and bounce around the levels taking out monsters and collecting random things to power up weapons and unlock upgrades.

The shooting is very kind thanks to the weapon types and the base defence mini games are really well done.

Just an excellent game that really needs a sequel.

So in addition to Ratchet and Clank and Spider-man 2, Insomniac have Sunset Overdrive remaster AND a sequel in the works. Strong output if true.

Sony are going to increase the amount they spend on their internal / close relationship studios by $180m. So yeah, that should mean we get even more games from their high profile studios.

Sony's plan to compete with Xbox: Stay the course | Opinion

(...)

The closest thing we got, in the end, was CFO Hiroki Totoki's comment about the company's plans to invest heavily in growing its internal studios -- a fairly boilerplate comment in an earnings call, but one that becomes a little more interesting when you consider the number that Totoki attached to that investment.

The increase in staffing at first-party studios carries a price tag of around $180 million this year, it seems -- that's just the year-on-year increase, not the total staffing budget -- which implies a pretty dramatic growth rate for Sony's existing studios and likely the creation of some new ones. Along with Totoki's mention of a renewed focus on second-party type relationships, the strategy Sony intends seems clear: exclusives, exclusives, exclusives, but with an emphasis on the kind that are created rather than acquired.

Sunset Overdrive was a fantastic, fun game, I’m all over a remaster and sequel but Jesus how big are Insomniac to be pumping out 3 big AAA games :shock:

I thoroughly enjoyed Sunset Overdrive. Usually I find these open world games a bit of a chore but the movement and tricks in this made it really enjoyable to explore, a bit like in Crackdown.

Guessing it will contain all the DLC and be jazzed up a bit, look forward to playing this again as I never played the DLC.

Sunset Overdrive is awesome. Good get for Sony if true. Thought Microsoft owned the IP.

Insomniac own the ip, which is why they developed it for microsoft. Sony wanted the ip pre acquisition. Will try it out on game pass, but it looks a bit rubbish in all honesty.

I'd buy a PS5 for a Sunset Overdrive sequel. Playing it now very much feels like a pre-Spider-Man audition game, it's got very satisfying traversal mechanics and is big, stupid fun. All I could ask for in a game.
