Marvel Games' new mandate is 'Make epic games,' and Spider-Man is just the beginning

The new head of Marvel's video game group talks about its AAA console future.

Overload2953d ago

"Ong said there was a lot about Marvel Games' plans for consoles that he couldn't talk about. There are existing partnerships with Telltale Games, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Warner Bros.' TT Games to make titles based on Marvel's properties, but he indicated there's a lot more in the works, some of which we'll hear more about later this year."

Sounds like they might have more games in line with Sony.

Its about time that Marvel characters get to star in quality games

Movefasta19932953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

maybe sucker punch is working on a marvel game.

_-EDMIX-_2953d ago

@Move- Stop...you've gone TOO FAR!!

(Hype levels continue to CLIMB)

That would be INSANE! I was hoping they were going to do the Spiderman game, but now that you bring this up, they could be doing a different Marvel IP.

miyamoto2953d ago

Billion dollar selling movies and now billion dollar selling games.
Marvel is on a roll!

Double_O_Revan2953d ago

Still gotta pay their pimp Disney though. But yea, they're doing great.

_-EDMIX-_2953d ago

@azs- lol even though many had things to say regarding that deal, I think Disney thus far is doing GREAT job with those franchises. I'd say this is the most I've been interested in Marvel IP in a very, very long time.

DareDevil is amazing, the Marvel films are amazing and now a high end Spider man game? They've been making the correct calls by not handing over their license to joke teams. .

NukaCola2953d ago

Hopefully Wolverine is getting a violent non movie tie in. Origins was good, but forcing it in being a movie game ruined it. Let the Wolverine loose!

Germany72953d ago

Thanks Overload, now i don't need to give any clicks to Polygon.
I really appreciate. :)

GamingIVfun2953d ago

Feels good that Insomniac is making another game for Sony and PS4.

ShadowKnight2953d ago

How about an X-Men or Avengers game!! :)

_-EDMIX-_2953d ago

Well damn, if thats the case ,Sony need to bring back that damn Spiderman font on the PS consoles!!! LOL!

But seriously, that is a huge deal for Sony to land on such a license.

Goldby2952d ago

well word is Moon Knight and Ghost Rider are coming to netflix, and theres that rumor about Suckerpunch so for all we know we may get one form suckerpunch, my choice would be a black panther game or ant man game. ohh image ant man with destructible environments when he goes big big

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3??pls Sony
Also another x men legends titls wouldnt hurt ;)

Hold_It2953d ago

Dude please don't say that, I've been dreaming of a X-Men Legends 3 for the whole PS3/360 gen xD

I hope we can also get a Marvel vs Capcom 4, or even a Marvel vs DC fighting game done by the MvC team.

bafa2953d ago

A new marvel vs capcom would be awesome. Played that on arcade just about everyday after school years ago.

jocomat92953d ago

Same Here Man.....ugh would be awesome!

MaxCompiler2953d ago

That would be amazing. MvC 4 too :)

ScorpiusX2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

Hopefully this game is the last exclusive ever allowed from the Disney/Marvel library of IP Characters and all games going forward are Multi platform .

You people enjoy the game, I have voiced my concern where it needed voicing ...........

mafiahajeri2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

Hopefully they don't. All this would have not been possible if it wasn't for Sony, they believed in the IP and used their great relationship with insomniac Resistance/R&C to make this happen.

I'm also sure the movie deal was made and the exclusive game was a sweetner from Marvel. If it was up to Activision it would have been an average cash grab wich would have sold very poorly.

A good spiderman exclusive is almost certain to sell more then a mediocre multiplat. I find it pretty damn hilarious how everyone starts to care when it's exclusive and wants to play a spiderman game when most of you probably haven't even bought the last two game's edge of time and Amazing spiderman 2. Only Sony could make something like this happen. If this was on the Xbox one it would have suffered in quality, actually scratch that because if it wasn't for Sony this wouldn't have existed...

This isn't going Multiplat btw considering its being published by Sony.

ScorpiusX2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

Been a fan of Marvel before PS was even a concept , and feel that Marvel allowing their library off character become exclusive to one platform is just wrong and alienates it fans , consumers .
That do not feel the need to own all plats just so they can continue to enjoy a particular Character in gaming medium.
This game only happened due to those talks sony had with Marvel to help save the Spiderman franchise and somewhere in those talks this game was given the greenlight , Also not wanting it to go Multi plat know sony published it . Just looking to make sure it does become a repeat with other IPs & as a consumer I will use all facets avail to get my sentiment across .

You people enjoy the game, I have voiced my concern where it needed voicing ...........

hamburgerhill2953d ago

Get off Sonys nuts please and just be happy! I just don't see how a multiplat game would be mediocre or suffer from quality on the X1 when both consoles are fairly close. Sony definitely has more realized talent but what you're saying just sounds like typical fanboy garbage.

ITryToGame2953d ago

" All this would have not been possible if it wasn't for Sony, they believed in the IP and used their great relationship with insomniac Resistance/R&C to make this happen."

Where'd you get that information from?

It's Marvel who are getting this game made by Insomniac, sure Sony are publishing the game, but it can appear on PC. During the conference Sony never used the word exclusive but "In Development For Playsration 4", they always point out an exclusive to make it clear. and on twitter Insomniac are stating they're in a partnership with Marvel, to make Spider Man on PS4. So im guessimg this is a stepping stone for more iteration of games based on marvel properties for consoles beyond PS4, as stated in the article.

"If this was on the Xbox one it would have suffered in quality, actually scratch that because if it wasn't for Sony this wouldn't have existed"

You do realise sunset overdrive would not have happened of it were not from MS, and that was a great game. Insomniac, went to Sony first but they did not agree unless they owend the IP.

Man, you're incredibly biased.

Aloy-Boyfriend2953d ago

The "Sony Interactive Entertainment Presents" is enough to know if a game is exclusive or not.

Marvel is only assisting Insomniac with the game story and source material. Everything else is up to Sony and Insomniac.

The problem i have with people like you is you guys dont do research or try to find out anything... Please do some googling before commenting... Its confirmed by SONY, MARVEL Insomniac that Spiderman is exclusive to PS4... 2ndly prolly u didnt know this Sony and Marvel from now will work together on Every Spiderman movie and they have come to an agreement which also includes Spiderman game franchises will be now developed by Sony... A simply google search will make you less arrogant and more informative.. Peace

Did you even read the article? It's Marvel Games who have enlisted Insomniac to develop the game. The made an exclusive deal with PS4. Despite whatever Sony owns In the film side of things, they don't have rights over the gaming side of things. Look at insomniacs twItter and Marvels, each stating they're working with each other to bring the game. Neither is stating they have partnered with Sony.

NO way Sony has more talented studios than anyone If Microsoft was to make a game like this it would not be near as good. Sony should make an exclusive partnership with Marvel and make several games Plus Sony has the Install base. Maybe an X-men game or Avengers game. I really think this is the start of something big between Marvel and Sony
