Square Enix Publishing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 In Japan As A PlayStation Exclusive

It’s been a long time since a Spider-Man video game was released in Japan. I believe the last one actually localized for Japan was Spider-Man 3. Square Enix will end the webbing drought by publishing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Japan, but Beenox’s game will only be released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Although i dont care for this game as it was trash there seems to be a trend with third party games being locked down as ps exclusive in japan first it was detiny now this and if this continues MS fight in japan just got harder

If that's the case then MS is going to have to pull out the check book and do what it does best and can afford to do. Which by all means I welcome.

Why? Do you live in Japan?

You gotta use, like, some punctuation there, dude. There's no excuse for that post. Not a single period, comma, or apostrophe in sight. Ugh.

On topic:
This doesn't change much, but might be an indication of things to come.
Dark Souls and several other multiplat games were PlayStation-only in Japan. Trying to sell Xbox versions just wasn't making the money back for publishers, oft times.

lol you are right, apologies for my poor use of the English language.

This and Destiny, both Activision games right?

I think it's quite interesting that Activision are opting against publishing in the region themselves. Says a lot about the value of the console market in Japan right now and/or the effort required to distribute there.

That's one game they can keep exclusive cause it bad.

does it matter?
dont think this game was on any nintendo devices and xbox owners are tiny.

Volkama1556d ago (Edited 1556d ago )

Xbox owners are tiny? Hmmm interesting if true.

Does this apply worldwide, or just in Japan?

Would you speculate that perhaps tiny people are buying Xboxes because of the sheer size of the console? Compensating for their own size?

I think if I was tiny I'd go the opposite way, and buy really small things so that I'd look bigger in photos and stuff.

i think average height for japanese males are 5ft6 i think. so its kinda tiny.
