Spider-Man with Sony and Insomniac Games is the start of a brand new era for the Marvel Games business.
When it comes down to quality no one beats Sony. I expect a lot more partner ships for games between Marvel&Sony.
Would like a good Marvel fighting game.
That's the way I like it ... Marvel vs Capcom 4?
I would say its a toss up between Sony and Nintendo.
'"We've had a long history of success with Activision, and we still have a great relationship with them," Ong said. "But the future of the Spider-Man console games is with Sony and Insomniac. We're delighted about this partnership, and that's something that's going to continue forward.' Definitely confirms Spiderman games will be there from now on. As for other games: '"With [regard to] other console partners, stay tuned. There's many more interesting additional things to come. But Activision is in the past, with regards to Spider-Man." Edit: @Majin-vegeta 'spidey is now in good hands of Insomniac.' On what I saw in the trailer I have the feeling Insomniac really gets Spiderman. Everything is spot on IMO
Yea I eouldnt be surprised if Sony ends up building a studio solely dedicated to this partnership.All we know is spidey is now in good hands of Insomniac.
Hopefully if Marvel does well enough with Sony then Star Wars could leak over as well. Sony could have some killer studios doing some really great stuff with the I.P...better than E.A.
All Your Marvel Games Are Belong to Us!
This from the company once responsible for the Trial of the Incredible Hulk and a Spiderman TV show where he never fought any of his comic book enemies. Someone had to say it!
the power of tent pole titles like uncharted go beyond their own profits
This is the very first time i want a Spiderman game....
Seems you missed a few really great games than. Spider-Man 2 was awesome on PS2, same can be said for the two Spider-Man games on PS1
Spider man 2 was so good. Makes me wanna bust out the Ps2
Crazy Hoffman, you should be the new Joker!
PS2 era was a long time ago and Activisions games on the PS3 never achieved the quality of Insomniac's Infamous games. I hope Marvel keep putting great Marvel characters in the hands of great studios. That trailer was one of the big highlights of E3, despite being so short. It captured Spiderman perfectly, and if we can move like that in game (like the restaurant scene), this will be a class of its own as far as super hero games go. Infamous Second Son was underrated, even if its story was very meh (the protagonist's brother just plain annoyed me). Gameplay was top notch though, and looked great. Fantastic achievement considering how close to launch it released. Still holds up today. Sigh... I wish Netherrealms would be allowed to do a Marvel fighting game. Injustice 2 looks fantastic, but I like Marvel's character's better. Image had a lot of great characters too. DC just has a few IMO, but maybe I don't know enough about its universe.
If you have a PS3.I highly recommend Shatterd dimensions.
I agree! This was a good game and that NOIR Spidey was awesome! This is a rare gem and even though it's not the open world Spiderman game we need, it was a great game nontheless.
Don't worry, you didn't miss much. Some are shit/average and some like spider-man 2 and ultimate are barely ok with the only fun is swinging. Shitty mission, shitty story (Ps1 spider-man's, Ultimate's were cool tho), shitty combat (Arkham-wannabe combat from the Amazing series was ok), shitty dialog.
I know, other than Batman Arkham, the other superheroes videogames are mediocre.... 7 to barely 8 in score/review....so i intentionally missed them... But Insomniac's Spiderman is looking SUPERSOLID.....
Wow. This is a huge compliment to Sony. Marvel is pretty much saying that Sony makes the best games out there. Interest how Marvel says Activision is the past and Sony and Insomniac the future for Spider-Man games. Insomniac has said it's entire team is focusing on Spider-Man. Since it's already been said that this game is the first of many. I guess Insomniac is turning once again into pretty much a Playstation exclusive developer. For those that blame Sony, please blame the one really responsible for this: Marvel. I'm very ok with their business decision. Now Spider-Man might actually be good and worth playing.
Well insomniac has always been sony exclusive except for I believe 2 games the likes of being fuse and sunset overdrive the likes of which both sold poorly. Yet on the ps4 they've had the ratchet and clank games and resistance all of which had sold great, in fact the latest ratchet and clank has broken all of insomniacs previous records sales wise. Playstation is where their fans are and where there are fans there is profit.
Sony needs to snatch them up asap.
Also don't forget that Ratchet and Clank was apparently ready to launch last year and then Sony (probably pissing off Insomniac slightly) stepped in and delayed it to time it for release with the movie. So that means they have probably been working on the Spiderman game a while now with Ratchet and Clank getting a bit of polish until it launched in April. Which brings me again to, how can we not even get a glimpse of the game that Sucker Punch must be working on right now (unless Sony close the studio tomorrow)? They released Infamous First Light pretty quickly after the launch of Infamous Second Son and that was almost 2 full years ago now. They don't need to build a game engine from the ground up for PS4 again, so you'd think they could get their next game out in the usual 2 year dev cycle. At least if they were to announce a new game today, we may get it by this time next year. But its looking like it won't be anytime soon now :(
Insomniac has two teams.
Great to hear. I liked Beenox' Spider-man Dimensions, but I haven't enjoyed a game in this series for a fortnight.
Yea Dimensions was the last good Spidey game.
for 2 weeks?
Hopefully they give more out to Sony. They will definitely get all the time they need to make great superhero games.
Just hope Sony don't jump the gun with announcing them. I'm really worried I wont be able to play Spiderman before 2018.
Then to hell will Marvel & ongion tool there
Lol didn't you say before on DR4 "that it should stay on Xbox and Xbox alone". In the killer instinct vs mortal kombat article when it said it would be exclusive to Xbox you were all like "make it happen MS". Now that Sony has Spider-Man your all pissy, what a hypocrite
Yes I stated such and am not renouncing what I said , Am beyond this being on the sony platform . My thought are on how I hope these Marvel Comic IPs don't follow suit to just one platform while leaving other platform owners out in the cold .
In other words you want everything on Xbox and nothing on Playstation. Got it.
So then the mentality is the same on both sides , even though the PS side is always wanting more of MS funded games or they try to predict how long a MS game is exclusive to the plat in hope of it being on the PS. Trust me if I could keep all MS funded games from ever leaving the plat I would .
I want a xmen or a hulk game next!!
Microsoft if have more talent devs you can get a partnership too...
It's not happening. Marvel was very clear. If you want to play Spider-Man games from now on. You better get a PS4.
He's referring to other Marvel IPs and how MS can obtain an IP partnership with Disney /Marvel .
Or do what I do introduce them to GameStop , advise them a second hand buy of the system plus game is better for everyone.
Which Devs are those? MS's studios are busy pumping out Halo, Gears and Forza
Could it finally be happening? Will we finally get a Spiderman game to match Spiderman 2?? Make it happen Insomniac!!!
No one respects the hyphen.
And they did well banking on Insomniac Games who are an independent company that make games for whoever they want. They are thrilled to be working on this which is always a good thing. This brings up the question, what are Sucker Punch actually working on the last 2 years? I wonder are they working on something else Marvel related but, in this case, they are in fact owned by Sony.
It'll be interesting to see what other licenses these game publishers will pick up do they can work on them. I hope one of them can start working on an X-Men game
Sony, Insomniac Games and Marvel: what a great partnership! Sucker Punch could make an amazing game of a Marvel series as well.
Is there any more proof needed? When it comes to the best and most diverse exclusives, Sony has everyone beat. It's easy to see. Even someone's grandma can see that.
