Insomniac Games confirms that Spider-Man will never be on Xbox One (via Twitter)

When asked how long it will be until Spider-Man releases on Xbox One, Insomniac Games answered, "Never"

The story is too old to be commented.

Get a PS4. Problem solved. No one should miss this game.

JaguarEvolved255d ago

I wish this game was on pc but it isn't so my ps4 is needed to play Spider-Man, God of war 4 and a lot of PlayStation exclusive games. PlayStation domination across the nation

uptownsoul255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

Insomniac also confirmed it here too...

When asked if Spider-Man would go to Xbox or PC after 1 year, they said, "No. It is a permanent exclusive and is published by Sony Interactive Entertainment." (source: https://twitter.com/insomni... )

DARK_WOLF255d ago

Not surprising givin the connection sony has with spiderman.

Id buy a ps4 just for this game letalone the rest of the great exclusives u can get.

tehpees3255d ago

Your comment reads like a PR person trying to boast or advertise the system.

mikeslemonade255d ago

The gaming industry needs more exclusives. Multi platform makes for bad games.

PressXtoBacon255d ago

I wish everything was on PC.

Except Nuts & Bolts

Consoles can keep that crap.

@ Michelle- man they seriously just need to ban your accounts, I have no clue why every damn article you happen to to jump in looking to argue about something.

smh

@tehpees3

Sony doesn't need a "PR person" for the PlayStation 4. Dozens of millions of exceptionally happy gamers do just fine at that job.

When something is leaps and bounds above the normal expectation for a product, that product will be generously praised. 🕶️-->😎

I'm getting ps4 when this game comes out ..I just hope it comes with a sweet spiderman edition ps4/pro

ConsoleGamer255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

I'd say mission accomplished, sony!^^
#exclusivesmatter

Eonjay255d ago

Yeah a friend of mine is doing the same thin but I think he will be getting a standard PS4. Everyone wants to play this game. its has a much broad appeal as most super hero movies.

djsilke45255d ago

why are there dislikes on this lmao

Ceaser9857361255d ago

Isn't this a known fact from day one.. Sony and Marvel has a deal because of Spiderman Movies and Avengers and Sony could choose any characters from Marvel to make a Video game and Sony approached Insomniac and they picked up Spiderman...

WilliamSheridan255d ago

I'm not sure why this is news, or why anyone could have thought any different

princejb134255d ago

im not so sure about the "sony could choose any characters from marvel to make a video game".
Sony bought the rights to spiderman a long time ago thats why all the movies were produced by sony. Until avengers came along and spiderman homecoming is when sony outsourced spiderman for a price.

Ceaser9857361255d ago

Yes prince here you go. Sony asked Insomniac to choose any Marvel character and the picked up Spiderman

jaymacx255d ago

I hope Insomniac makes more games based on Marvel. I’d rather them be exclusive to Sony than be made by someone who won’t treat them right and be multi-platform. From the latest trailer the game looks great.

Sevir255d ago

That's not exactly how it happened..

Marvel Interactive, required the license of their IPs from publishers, the Spiderman game ip license expired with Activision and Marvel didn't want the IP being governed soley by one party, so they took it back..

At that time Insomniac was in talks with Marvel to do a Spider-Man game that was original and not tied to the movie universe, and they said Sony would be the perfect partner due to their relationship and release portfolio with them.

After some negociatio on, Shu, Ted Price and the Head of Marvel interactive struck a deal to create the game exclusively on PS platforms and Insomniac as the Developer for 10 years...

Similarly, the new Avengers game between Square, Crystal Dynamics and Marvel interactive was born out of this kind of IP leasing.
As well as Capcom and Marvel.

And the New Telltale GotGalaxy game.

Marvel now owns their Game IPs and serves as executive producers on the various projects theyve loaned out. It's the same approached they've done for their cinematic universe that their Interactive Development has adopted. Because let's face it... Beenox and Activition has butchered Every Spiderman after Spiderman 2...

ImGumbyDammit255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

@princejb134
They own the rights to movies not for other media. EG. They can't just make a Spider-man universe game without negotiating with Marvel like any other company would for the rights to use the character. In fact, Sony actually can no longer make animated Spider-Man TV shows that they once could do. They relinquished those rights back to Marvel in 2007. This exclusive game was a result of Disney/Marvel and Sony negotiation. Their recent development package with Disney gave the MCU access to Spider-man and Sony received access to the Marvel brain trust to help them out of their low performing Spidey movies. Also part of the deal, Sony was also given access to Spider-Man limited video game usage. Actually, @Cesae9857351 was right Sony was given an opportunity to choose any character for use in a video game and in the end, Sony and Insomniac wisely chose the iconic Spider-Man.

Here is neat tib-bit about the agreement reached for bringing Spidey into the MCU. Any character in a Spider-Man movie which is now tied to MCU designed universe becomes officially part of the MCU for Disney to use as they want going forward. All without getting access Spider-man rights back fully. That is why you won't see Venom and other characters that Sony want to use for exclusive usage in an upcoming Spider-Man movie. They can make separate movies, eg. Venom but, not tied to the current Spider-Man universe without losing the exclusive use of that character. Appearing in these new co-developed MCU based Spider-Man movies will make them part of the MCU and give Marvel rights to use them as such going forward. So the Venom movie coming out will have no ties to the current Spider-Man movies (it can't be the same actors in the same roles, the same connection between

cell989255d ago

Dude I hope they release a Spider-Man PS4 console version . I’d buy it in an instant

I dont think Marvel would want Spiderman game to stay exclusive and only because of the Movie deals this could be possible.. This is an old news And its all over Google.

There are so many games worth buying PS for if you don’t have one it doesn’t make much sense to me unless you only plays CoD and such and your friends buy the same box for that but still doesn’t make much sense to me because you could do that on PS and get all of the great exclusives and they will keep coming all generation long guaranteed

Tobse255d ago

Im not really into superhero stuff. But I loved the ps1 spiderman. Might buy it on a discount

trooper_255d ago

Your trolling fell flat on its face.

Tobse255d ago

How is any of that trolling?

lokirevamped255d ago

You're 100% correct. I personally think there are games on all platforms that should be witnessed by true gamers whether it's PS4, Xbox, Switch or PC. That's why I bought each system for my son and myself. I'm not a fan of a console, I am a fan of the games.

BiGT85255d ago

I own a playstation 4 pro spiderman is a day one but for me!!!

Toolster255d ago

Don't care about this news, just give us a release date.

Majin-vegeta255d ago

Few more hours and well know

HeisenbergX255d ago

Hell yeah ! and get a Switch .. Ps4 pro and Switch is dream team.

IamTylerDurden1255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

Not owning a PS4 this gen would be detrimental to a serious gamer. There are just too many spectacular exclusives that you can't get anywhere else. Bloodborne, R&C, Horizon, Uncharted 4, God of War, Spiderman, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Days Gone, TLoU 2, and Dreams all are/will only be available on PS4 /Pro and all are and appear to be titles you do not want to miss.

mandingo255d ago

To be fair, you can’t list games that arent out yet because they may or may not be good. But yea I agree, ps killed it this gen. Ive always played Xbox but if I had the time to own two consoles I’d def get one.

trooper_255d ago

Wow.

They just laid down the law, lol.

mandingo255d ago

What if the game turns out to be bad? Should people miss it?

Gamist2dot0255d ago

It won't turn out bad because it's developed by a company with a current good track record, backed by companies with good track record.

paintedgamer1984255d ago

Xbox dudes would rather die than support a japanese based console. Their mentality is support american based products without knowing their box isnt even made in the usa.

georeo255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

Well they just asked if it was, nothing wrong with that.

ThoedEssay773255d ago

No thanks, I will gladly miss ANY triple A game on a FOREIGN FOCUSED console. Buy AMERICAN!!

A lot of us were surprised when No Man's Sky announced going multi-platform.

Hardiman255d ago

Good thing there are PS4 Slims and Pro's available at local retailers so there's no reason any gamer couldn't play this amazing looking game!

Saijahn255d ago

snatch all the exclusives i like and a ps4 around the holidays when there all dirt cheap. Hopefully TLOU2 comes out by then.

Retroman255d ago

" Spiderman" will NEVER!! be on X1 ok, one for one ....overdrive will never be on ps4 and spiderman will never be on X1 ooooh' tay! meanwhile back at Imsomniac : lets build remake of "going commando" since remake ratchet 1 did extremely well.

bluefox755255d ago

So might have been on ps4 for a second game, but I doubt it as the sales weren't too hot the first time time around.

jznrpg255d ago

What is overdrive? Sunset? Looked to dudebro for me

darthv72255d ago

Oh its so much fun though. Think jet grind radio meets ratchet and clank.

Retroman255d ago

If you knew I was talking about Sunset overdrive why even ask.
Dang , some people you gotta explain everything.

Unreal01255d ago

I nearly picked up an Xbox One for Sunset Overdrive, the game looked great. Xbox just needs a few more games of that quality.

Apocalypse Shadow255d ago

It's a Sony property with Disney approving it.

Should I laugh?

Might get dinged for that.

MegamanXXX255d ago

I agree might get dinged for that

Thatguy-310255d ago

Actually Marvel has the IP rights for the games and they took it away from Activision and gave it to Sony who got Insomniac to work on it.

MegamanXXX255d ago

So what are you saying? You still think this game is coming to Xbox?

Apocalypse Shadow255d ago

Actually, Disney owns the game rights. Sony owns the movie rights. They are collaborating to make something great.

BiggerBoss255d ago

@megaman

No, he was just saying that sony doesn't OWN the rights to Spider-Man games like they do with the movies

badz149255d ago

the thing is...Sony doesn't own Insomniac. It's just amazing that Sony was able to summon Insomniac to develop it instead of all of their other studios. I guess Insomniac do love Sony afterall

ShadowWolf712255d ago (Edited 255d ago )

Sony now holds the Spider-Man game license previously held by Activision. Period.

SuperSonic91255d ago

Even after Sunset Overdrive the bond between Sony and Imsoniac is unbreakable!

jaymacx255d ago

@badz149 who wouldn’t wanna go where they have everything needed to be successful. Spider-man will get sales on name alone. You add in Sony exclusive and talented developer then you got a successful combination.
