When it comes down to quality no one beats Sony.

I expect a lot more partner ships for games between Marvel&Sony.

PizzaSteve1478d ago

Would like a good Marvel fighting game.

miyamoto1477d ago

That's the way I like it ... Marvel vs Capcom 4?

Eonjay1478d ago

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

Majin-vegeta1478d ago

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.

Dabigsiebowski1477d ago

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.

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

Melankolis1478d ago

This is the very first time i want a Spiderman game....

Hoffmann1478d ago

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

BiggerBoss1478d ago

Spider man 2 was so good. Makes me wanna bust out the Ps2

Germany71477d ago

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.

Majin-vegeta1478d ago

If you have a PS3.I highly recommend Shatterd dimensions.

NukaCola1477d ago

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.

PhucSeeker1477d ago (Edited 1477d ago )

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.

Melankolis1477d ago

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.....
