Naw, but they've been working together for so long, now Sony gets full rights to all the games the develop. I dont know if Microsoft has full publishing rights to Sunset Overdrive, because if they dont, that's coming to Sony.

Seemed Sony fans hated that game though.. Can't wait for more Spider-man or Marvel related stuff.

At this point, Sunset Overdrive is a practically a guarantee. Its easy money considering the game is already made and Insomniac has already been clamoring for it. Makes a sequel easier to pitch but doubt it will be anytime in the near future. Also puts Resistance 4 on the table now and that would put a fps mp in Sony's library. Im just speculating of course on the last part. We all know Spider-Man 2(most likely the game they are working on right now) and of course Ratchet&clank will continue.

Hope we get back to more third party exclusives to be honest. Give me reasons to own every system.

Pretty sure Microsoft still holds the publishing rights for the first game, even though Insomniac owns the IP, so it's not that easy.

They definitely have free reign for a sequel, though, if Sony wants to.

I actually forgot about that, they still do own the rights to the firs game.

This was a good move on Sonys part. Spiderman PS4 was amazing. Sunset Overdrive was underrated, got lost in the shuffle with the Xbone scandals. I'd def play a sequel.

With Sunset Overdrive its Insomniac that's owns the IP. They couldn't afford to publish the game. I don't think it means that Microsoft exclusively owns the publishing rights. There is no way Microsoft can say republish Sunset Overdrive.

lack of first party studios
poor quality outsource IP's
cancelled games
lack of nurturing cherished IP


This is what happens when your entire game department is ran by two people who don't give a fu*k about gaming (Terry Myerson and Don Matrick )phil has the floor now but the damage was done all the fu*ked up practices from the last gen came back and bit them on the a*s and the xbox one took the headshot from ps4

its all good though sony and nintendo have already had bad generations now microsoft knows what its like hopefully they learn from it.
