So I'm sat on a local newspaper website when I get a full screen ad for Sunset Overdrive. I was about to hit close when I noticed the ad said exclusively on "Xbox One & PC".

Did someone at MS screw up? Surely these ads are pre-approved.

Edit - Direct link to ad:

Interesting. Didn't they say that the game won't come out on PC at some point? Can't remember exactly.

That's cool if true. I'd buy it on PC.

But it feels like a mistake. It's not "on PC" right now. Why would you say that in an ad?

Probably a mistake. Probably not a mistake.

As the only Xbox One title I'm interested in, and the knowledge that it is very likely I will never pick one up - if it hits PC and isn't a mess, I'd buy it.

This has to be an error. Sunset Overdrive surely will attract new console owners and putting it on pc will just stop that won't it? Microsoft need to hold on to their exclusives. I'm tempted by this but would just hold on for pc version if true

That ad does imply it will come out on PC soon but it wasn't announced for that platform. I think it's a mistake. Probably some kind of template/premade asset that was used here from another ad (DR3, Ryse)

12 month exclusive perhaps?

Well you do know that former Xbox One exclusives Dead Rising 3 and Ryse ended up on PC eventually so who knows what the fuck is going on.

It's one of the few so far completely XB1 exclusive titles and they even used it as the white XB1 bundle game.

Insomniac owns the IP so I wouldn't be surprised. Not holding my breath but I think it might be similar to the Alan Wake situation.

Spending 80 percent of your career working on IP owned by Sony will probably not lead to many PC releases.

They're currently making a PC game called Slow Down Bull.

If it is PC bound, we won't see that port until 8 or 9 months after the X1 version has launched. It's what happened with DR.

Only reason I have zero plans to buy this game at the moment. Love insomniac, bit after getting boned (pun very much intended) on both ryse and dr3 I can't find it in me to put money down on an x1 game knowing that in around a year I can get a vastly superior pcv with all the dlc for a cheaper price.

There is no evidence to support that, but in the end, does it even matter? Microsoft still benefit via either platform. Moreover, it may simply be a poor business decision to keep it on the console alone considering the install base.

Regardless, it is highly unlikely that they would want this to be known so soon. Then again, maybe not. Microsoft have interesting new directions with a fair few of their products

This is most likely just a mistake.

But it wouldn't be a surprise if it does show up on PC 8-12 months later, MS doesn't own the IP.

Played DR3 and ryse on PC so if there's a PC version of this I'd just end up waiting to play it there. I need a reason to use my XB1's disc drive.

gotta have that xb1 exclusive huh. that's the only reason I can think that you wouldn't want more people to play this game.

I think the exclusive deal is, just don't release it on Playstation consoles.

I don't get this. PC and consoles have two different audiences. Who was planning on spending $400 on an Xbox One just to play SO but won't now because the game might come out PC this holiday?

The people who own a high end PC are niche. The people who plan on owning a high end PC and an Xbox One are the niche of the niche.

It looks fun, but I mean more that if it's only available on one platform that increases the strength of that platform. If true then I would be thinking it more likely that most ms exclusives will hit pc at some point, lowering the incentive to get an x1

I don't think I'll ever quite grasp these comments. Why would it be bad for you if this happens eventually?

The only reason for such complaints for me, is if the game itself is effected negatively in some way - poorer scope / scale, compromises, rushed out etc. I don't think any of these would be the case if it were true anyway.

I'd rather have Scalebound personally- but MS being more open towards PC is only a good thing, imho.
