Hardcore Gamer: Without warning, the game has popped up on Xbox Live and is now available to buy and download
What the heck? I thought this game didn't exist.
Well . . . that was a short lived controversy.
could be to stop negativity that would result from another tech showdown between PS4/XB1 before the game launch. Actvision may use this tactic again if it works.
@NewMonday Do you actually believe that or are you trolling? Because neither would surprise me.
notice the term "could be" that's is called speculation
this is odd, not sure what happened with this game. surely some things will be explained.
What the hell...it really is there I really had no plans to play it at all, but honestly I'm debating picking it up.
Buy it and test it out!
lol so someone made a huge list of games coming on PS4 and X1 and yet the same games are coming that that "list" said wouldn't, funny world don't ya say? lol
its not about any type of list, the game was removed from all major retailers for a short period of time and a bunch of news articles came out on it. then it started re appearing with the release date set in july. just a bit odd that this has happened, but good for x1 gamers.
What are you talking about? People geniunely thought the game wasnt going to come out on X1, so why would they include it on the list? You act as if there are more games like this on the "list". Fact is, the PS4 has more games, period. You dont need to take them out to make it look that way.
The PS4 does indeed have more "games". The issue most people have though is they are not necessarily PS4 games, there are many, many games that are simply shovelware and make no use of the systems capabilities. It's a quantity vs quality issue. The worlds most powerful home console is plagued with games that will run on most peoples moms smart phone. The Wii never counted as a next gen game machine. Why do these games count as games for a next gen console?
Videos up from 2 weeks ago of the game too lol Makes me wonder about that Sony stopping the release theory again...
I'm pretty sure Sony has better things to do than try and stop the release of a game that will probably be mediocre on just one of the competitions platforms.
Exactly! Spiderman 2 would be the perfect candidate for something like that! Afterall it is the only next gen title showing the true potential of what the next gen is all about!?/s Did I really need to show I was being sarcastic?
Yeah I was more concerned with the fact that they might have put it on the back burner, ala every third party Wii U game.
UNCONFIRMED rumour is that the game was running in less than 1080p on Xbone and Microsoft blocked released because they see such stories as damaging. However they paid for developers to help optimise code to 1080p then gave it the green light.
which would further prove most xbox one games not reaching 1080p is in fact the fault of lazy developers and publishers rushing release dates. I own both consoles and there's no question ps4 has the better hardware. Still, anyone who actually believes the xbox one is not capable of running every game released thus far at 1080p/60fps are lacking knowledge of the hardware. Now, the division, expect that to have a good excuse for a lower resolution...
That rumor seems false since the developer said 3 days before the game got delayed for Xbox one that both ps4 and Xbox one version ran at 1080p and 30fps
Wouldn't Sony make money on Spider-man regardless of the console since they have the rights? Or is that movie only?
Sony has no rights to Spider-Man video games.
Movie only my friend
It is clearly the result of some bigwigs getting shirty, but I doubt it's Sony behind it. The game would be platform exclusive if that's how Sony wanted to play the license. No, this sounds more like a hold-up between MS and Activision to me. I'm not sure the MS-Activision relationship is that strong these days. I really don't like Activision, but they hold some huge influence in the industry so MS will probably need to throw some more money at their faces sooner rather than later.
Spiderman is owned by Disney, not Sony. Sony has the rights to make Spiderman films only. Activision owns the rights to make Spiderman games through 2017. http://investor.activision....
That's odd Sorta off topic but maybe there is hope for one day just seeing half life 3 up for purchase out of the blue.
I lol'd hard at that. xD
I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see it pop up on the Steam Store, exclusively for SteamOS. I know they said they weren't making exclusives, but HL3 + SteamOS + Steam Machines = instant take my money memes.
Pikachu will evolve by the time we'll ever see Half Life 3.
So it came out before the PS4 version? Quite funny. Some people have it on PS4 already saw some streams on it, doesn't look very good to be honest. Ill try it though as I loved the older games but found the moVie based games were better.
No.... it came out at same time despite the publisher-activision saying it wouldn't...
Oh is this US? The ggame isn't out until Friday in UK. I forget US is Tuesday, my bad!
@Clown - well USUALLY it's Tuesdays here in North America, but publishers can really choose whatever day they want. Nintendo lately have been choosing Fridays to release their games for some reason.
Yeah its usa altjpugh I just got an email about stock delay in the uk till mid next week :/
so has anyone tried to download it? sorry read the article and found out you guys did. Will be downloading asap!
shoot, it seems legit as it is on the Xbox.com webpage. But places like amazon and Gamestop still has a 7/1 release date for the game though. Hmmm, could it been an error and the Xbox live digital version wasn't supposed to be online? I am all confuse now.
Looking at it id cancel it for good, looks real bad quality
From non-existing to sudden appearance... something tells me it's rushed.
Rushed or not..these movie tie in games usually sucks so bad. I do not think this game is worth 60 bucks.
The only movie game that's been good was Escape from Butcher Bay.
Wow....how bizarre. This is totally 100% legit too. Watched a little on Twitch and now I'm downloading my own copy. It also appears to be $5 less for the digital copy than going in store to pick it up
jus seen it on there too. i watched sum twitch videos of it and it honestly looks like a 360 game ill wait for a demo befor i get to play it
Just saw this news.... talk about the bizarre. Maybe this really was an licensing issue with MS and Activision or some dispute over who knows what. So odd that it just suddenly appears.
