It's not a Sony exclusive? That comes as a surprise.

Insomniac's last game was multiplatform. And not very good, thanks to publisher interference.

Apparently they answered the question about why it's an Xbox One exclusive several hours ago. Microsoft was apparently very adamant about publishing their game and cool with letting them keep their own IP, so Insomniac agreed.

They don't own anything else they did for Sony or Vivendi.

Oh. Shit. This reminded me that I pre-ordered this on Amazon. I forgot the release date and it's already shipping. I don't need any new games right now. I need the money more.

OH WELL. I GUESS IT'S TOO LATE NOW. GOT THIS COMING IN TWO DAYS OR SOMETHING.

This is not actually coming out on PC by the way. That was apparently a mistake!

Getting this for Christmas. Honestly surprised how good of the reviews it is getting.

Also last day to get the free dlc costume from their twitter event.

Not that surprising. It's Insomniac.

Well I was kind of worried after how Fuse turned out. I think it would still be a decent game but I was expecting that many reviews giving it 9s. From the sounds of it this is their apology for Fuse.

It seems pretty fun so far! Feels like that game you'd play as a kid when you'd jump from one piece of furniture to another, because the ground was lava. Only with guns.

I was watching some folks play this and without even trying there popped up the "The Floor Is Lava" achievement, and yeah that seems like the game in a nutshell, and I'm totally cool with that.

This game is really making me consider an Xbox One for the holiday... but that rules out Bloodborne... but more games for gold and other Xbox exclusives! Decisions.

Xbox One has better exclusives in 2014. PlayStation 4 has several heavy hitters in 2015. You could always just stagger your console purchases by an entire year. My guess is that Sony's going to have a hell of a Q4 in 2015. This year, though? Neither console has a ton, but unless Drive Club is your jam, then the XB1 comes out on top just a bit in worthwhile exclusives. It's also going to be on sale soon ($50 off), so that probably makes shit just a smidge easier.

I'M JUST HAPPY I GOT BOTH AND DON'T HAVE TO FUCK WITH THESE DECISIONS.

Yeah the price drop happens on my birthday, so I'll see if I can swing the Sunset Overdrive bundle then.

For closer to an hour and forty minutes, I guess. It's archived.

I'm probably going to play again in a few minutes. Was taking a break and didn't want to stream nothing.

Wii U has the best exclusives this year. Go Nintendo!

Also this game looks interesting. The actual movement looks almost painfully slow but really animated. That may just be me being used to Second Son travel. Haven't tried it yet though. Just watched my brother play so I'll withhold judgement on that til I can take a crack at it.

As far as getting the bundle goes I'd say go for it. With this out, a solid bit of free games and the price drop on the 2nd it's become worth it. Just waiting for all those games I really want.

Yes, but we're talking real consoles, not baby toys.

I think you're confusing these forums for the YouTube comment section, diaper baby.
