edit: Oh....it hasn't released in the UK?

So buy it online and have it in less than a week. Who, that wants the DVD/Bluray, would buy it on XBL to save less than a week?

You can already Buy Spiderman from the PSN Store.

Most agrees I've ever seen without a single disagree.

This isn't exclusive though; I got an email from sony a week ago informing me it was available from the next day on one of their many video services....
BlackTar187  +   1025d ago

Godmars290  +   1025d ago
Timed exclusive versus physical media.

Wait? What are we even talking about?

Sounds like someone's on drugs, and given that its not me - I want some! Share damnit!
blackbirdi  +   1025d ago
the blu ray and dvd is available in europe so nothing big

Contrary to popular fanboy belief, Sony & Microsoft are actually very good partners in the business world.

Imagine that!
Godmars290  +   1025d ago
Which is why MS supported HD-DVD over Blu-ray and where one of the last major adapters? Also why Sony C-blocked media and security codecs, make it the standard which did eventually net MS ton in royalties, for HD discs?

He said they were partners not buddies.

He said very good partners. "Very good" partners don't block each others in their endeavors.
sourav93  +   1025d ago
Listen, if MS and Sony were arch enemies, Vaios wouldn't ship with pre-installed Windows OS.
Godmars290  +   1025d ago
But then MS likes money from licensing out its software while Sony likes selling their electronics with popular, common features.

Its called middle ground, which there wasn't any as in the case of HD discs and the formats they would use.

FFS, I'm still wondering why some site is hooting about Xbox have "exclusive" rights to a movie I can get on Amazon demand.
JasonKCK  +   1024d ago
Dude just stop talking, you dig yourself deeper and deeper. MS didnt make HDDVD Toshiba did. Sony even has a Sony Pictures app on 360.
lodossrage  +   1025d ago
How is it exclusive?
You can grab this movie on PSN, Video Unlimited, and a few other media digital outlets right now. Is there some sort of outtakes or something that's exclusive to them?
GraveLord  +   1025d ago
Probably some sort of UK-only thing.

The movie has been available for purchase in the PSN Store since last week.
MYSTERIO360  +   1025d ago
Why is sony throwing away money??? dont they want to reap from their spendings.....then again it must of been a huge lump sum from MS
oakshin  +   1025d ago

@oakshin. where do u stream from on your ps3?
BlackTar187  +   1025d ago
ohh good for you . We are so happy you were able to watch a movie for free and not give any support to the project. Not that spiderman/marvel need your money but still doesn't mean its okay to steal it
stonecold3  +   1025d ago
its already out in australia on blu ray dvd
BozoLoco  +   1025d ago
It's been on Xbox Live in Australia for about a week now. DVD and BR, too.
Roccetarius  +   1024d ago
Well, it's not like it was a great movie anyways. I don't think this is a win.
PirateThom  +   1024d ago
This is maybe the most misleading, non-news story ever.
mochachino  +   1024d ago
If I were to buy any movie it most certainly would on be on Blu-ray, nothing available commercially so far looks or sounds better.
oakshin  +   1024d ago
i would have to have money first off and disney doesnt need any1s money there buyin everything including marvel

turn ur ps3 on go to internet search and type watch movies for free find a good site press select to bookmark it make sure javascrept is on im sorry this sites to high traffic to just give it away and i value it to much to pm u so u can turn it in go after piretebay.se thats where people hurt the indecently downloading and burning bootlegs where i stream witch only effects me i also live stream sports on the ps3 such as espn u and nfl network would i rather have espn u yea but i dont 50 more dollers a month so save ur "ur stealing" for the people that have the money to do otherwise ......
cee773  +   1024d ago
On the contrary your stealing out of Sony's pocket Sony owns the movie license to Spidey 100% Disney own the the movie merchandising license 100%
mathsman  +   1024d ago
I would like to say that so many of you are missing the bigger picture. It doesn't matter what the film is, or where else in the world it's available; in one territory MS has gone to the effort of securing the rights to a big name film before it's general release.

That could've been a game or DLC. But instead, they spent money on a film. What does that mean for the Xbox as a brand? It marks a turning point in the move towards 'entertainment' as opposed to 'gaming.'
urwifeminder  +   1024d ago
What a crap movie and the main girl looks like a bug with lohans disease.
SITH  +   1024d ago
Or, you could just watch the movie for free on the Internet.

Oh Microsoft! When this is big news from them I only wonder what they think will excite us gamers when they reveal the Next XBox. Please bring us games!
SaffronCurse  +   1024d ago
Oh my god..this is HUGE
Sp1d3ynut  +   1024d ago
So let me get this straight. MS asks Sony...who OWNS the Spidey films/rights..."Hey, can we give you a bunch of money so we can have first dibs on selling TAS-M for you?" I'm sure Sony was like "(Not sure if serious)....Um, sure?? 0_o "
MultiConsoleGamer  +   1024d ago
A Sony pictures film getting exclusive early release on 360?

Something larger is going on behind the scenes.

The next thing you know we will hear that Gakai is coming to 360.

(It's already coming to surface.)
