Marvel Games has confirmed that Spider-Man is only the very beginning of its exciting game-based universe.
Yeah getting away from activision was the best move. It just seemed to reek of somebody going "who makes the game with the highest sales? Get them to make the spiderman game." I will say though, even being a PS4 gamer primarily, I don't like the exclusivity. xbox and nintendo only gamers should be able to play it as well.
I dunno, games witcher are multiplatform and it turned out ok.
Well sony holds the license for now if marvel is to be believed.
@ MoshM Yikes. Are you saying that multiplatform games look and run like shit on PS4? Because they certainly don't look or run like shit on my PC. I think you're full of it though. Multiplatform games do not look and run like shit on PS4. You're just doing the typical fanboy crap of bashing multiplatform games and putting exclusives on a pedestal for worship. Will Spiderman likely be a great game? Yes. But there are many great multiplatform games too.
The fact it is exclusive is the reason it looks and plays better than any third party developed title could dream of! I know it's popular to hate exclusives nowadays but exclusivity can be a wonderful thing and give consumers a reason to buy a particular console and Spider-Man looks worlds better than anything that's come before and looks as good if not better than it'd contemporaries! There are many, many reasons at this point to own a PS4, PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro so there's really no reason a person would miss games like Spider-Man!
@yeah, xbox and nintendo gamers can play it if they buy a PS4. Sony own the license, PS4 gets the exclusive end of.
I believe MoshM was talking about Spider man games. Starchild got carried away. I would certainly be annoyed if it was Xbox exclusive so I can see where your coming from. However are we really going the way of saying exclusives are a bad thing? All the creativity that brought so many amazing games because they are exclusive and specially develop and funded for that same reason? Who knows if this game could have come to be without Sony support? What happens when exclusive games are not a thing any more? Does that mean we actually get less quality games and kills creativity? Don't you want the platforms to compete and bring about the best possible games?
I got no problem with exclusivity when done right. But deals like street fighter 5, what we though tomb raider might have been. I do take issue with. When you have an established multiplatform franchise, that has fans on multiple systems and you pay money to keep some of those fans from buying it... that seems wrong. There are exceptions of course, bayonetta comes to mind right away. there's a franchise that would have died without nintendo. so I'm cool with that. But for a game like the two I mentioned above, if I had any interest in street fighter I would have bought it used. And tomb raider, I waited until it was dirt cheap on PS4 so that they got some money but not their full asking price. Now I also have a gaming PC, so I could have bought both of these much earlier, but I felt it more important to stand with my fellow gamers getting the shaft. More simply, if Sony goes out and say hey, Ubisoft, we'll give you some money if you make a new game just for us, that's fine by me. But if they say, here's some money, make the next watch dogs just for playstation. Then I'd take issue. I will say I'm on the fence about spiderman though. It's almost like a new IP as it has nothing to do with previous games but still being a character like spiderman, i dunno, still kinda rubs me a bit wrong for some reason. I'm probably better off thinking about it like MLB the show rather than street fighter.
Yes, put an end to crappy release superhero games. They deserve the quality development. Waiting on Iron-Man.
if you have PSVR I highly suggest megaton rainfall. It's basically a Superman vr game in all but name.
Guess they didn't hesitate to sweep Marvel Vs Capcom under the rug. Unfortunate, but the future is very bright. They were right to choose Sony, and Sony was right to choose Insomniac.
Guess the same applies to the TellTale Guardians of the Galaxy game
I hope so.
An IronMan PS4 game would be dope.
It’s called Anthem. In this universe though he didn’t fall back out of the portal.
I'd prefer just about anyone else. Captain America, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Black Panther, Doctor Strange...
Open World, cover based Punisher game please!
Punisher on the NES was amazing
Hell yeah it was! It was one of my favorite NES games. The side scrolling beat 'em up on Genesis was pretty cool too, where the 2nd player controlled Nick Fury. It was a little weird having a Punisher game with almost no guns in it, but for a beat 'en up it was pretty fun.
the on rails one?
Oh god no
bring back the Marvel FPS!
That looked really cool. The Iron Man gameplay was nice. I always thought a FPS X-Men game would be cool. Where you could pick from a bunch of X-Men depending on their power sets and what the level has in it. If you pick Cyclops then it's like your looking through his visor and everything has a red tint. Colossus would be good for a level with a lot of enemies with guns and different obstructions he could smash through to progress through the level. Like each level could have a bunch of ways of completing it, and each X-Man could have their own way of doing it. Nightcrawler would be stealthy and hide in the shadows. Wolverine would obviously run head first into everything. Gambit could pick locks or blow up walls. It could be really cool...
lol who downvoted THAT?
Hopefully, that'd be sick.
Why is everyone getting so excited over this game??? It looks good but all of those things have already been done by the Batman games. Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't Sony own Spiderman only. Why would people think they own the entire Marvel roster.
Because this game make by Insomniac Game and people want an actual Spider-Man game since Spider Man PS2.
What game is doing something no game has? And if spiderman is successful you can bet marvel will license out the rest of their properties to create a video game universe. It's not about sony owning the license to the rest it's just that ifbmarvel sees an opportunity for a successful video game universe they will pursue it. And given video game dev time I'm sure insomniac wont be the only developers
Spiderman is exclusive to PlayStation so obviously Sony did something to keep it on platform. In addition to that they could have given the game to any developer but they chose Insomniac. Game looks good so far so we should be grateful that it's getting made by talented developers.
Technically no. They went to Insomniac and let THEM choose a character to work with. Hence the exclusivity deal. Spidey is with Sony and Insomniac for the foreseeable future.
As far as we know, Sony only gained the rights to Spider-Man, and it makes sense since they already had the movie rights. But if the game is a smash hit, then Marvel might very well trust Sony with another crack at a different super hero. Or maybe the whole Marvel universe, basically do with games what they did with the movies. Each subsequent game after Spider-Man could actually involve a completely different character, but eventually they bring them all together. That could easily be a decades worth of yearly games if you could put the required resources behind it. But hopefully with a new, original storyline.
The rights of these characters are where people that don't follow comics and the movies are always wrong. Sony ONLY owns the movie rights to Spider-Man. Marvel can do whatever they want with him in any other media. Marvel still owns the character. It just so happens that Marvel chose to make this game a PS4 Exclusive. I'm sure there was a hell of a deal involved with it, but regardless. The fact of the matter is that if Marvel wants Sony to make more games of their characters, which is highly likely if Spider-Man is successful, then they can.
Why are gamers excited over a very promising game? Strange question. As for mistaking Spider man for Batman. You may need get some info about those two guys.
I want a x-men only fighting game
Would be sick.
Fighting games don't do much to add to a universe.
They do a lot to add to the fun factor, though.
I would give my 3rd nut for a new X-Men Legends game. Unfortunately the X-Men will continue to get the short end of the stick unless Disney really does buy Fox Entertainment and Marvel gets the movie rights back. Until then, Marvel will just continue to ignore X-Men because they aren't part of their Cinematic Universe. But watch. If Marvel gets their movie rights back, as soon as they make a successful X-Men movie we will start seeing video games pop up again.
X-men Legends or MUA some day please. I’ve wanted a MCU version for years now. The port didn’t count.
MUA was great, but I liked X-Men Legends better. Unfortunately, Marvel will keep ignoring X-Men until they get their movie rights back.
Wow. If Marvel can turn their gaming around they could be a power house!
This is a straight up EA/Madden move, I hope Sony loses exclusive rights because I won't be buying your hardware.
Why wouldn't u buy Sony's hardware if u dont mind me asking
Wow, you are salty that much. Marvel picker Sony because Marvel know Sony First Party Studios are talented and Sony picked Insomniac because Insomniac know how to make great gameplay and their relationship are still strong.
So the NFL went to EA and asked them to pick a Dev partner and help publish their games? No? Then this ain't that.
Except Sony allows devs to be creative and offer a plethora of different games that are simply on another level ! There are some companies that are operate similar to how EA does business but Sony's not one of them!
A Punisher game practically writes itself. But we definitely need an Iron Man game. Having to choose different armors for different powers or situations is another great design that could easily translate to games. And hey...maybe some love for the X-Men when this buy out goes official.
There are how many X-Men comics that have been running over the last couple years now? Contrary to popular e-belief, they haven't been trying to bury the X-Men for a good while now. If there's a market for it, and a good partner, they'll do it.
The comics have been running but they have definitely taken a back seat to Avengers and Avengers related material. And we haven't had a good Xmen game in god knows how long.
Yeah, the comics are still there. But what else? The only reason they keep the comics is because comic fans would riot if they got cancelled. But ask yourself something. When is the last time you saw an X-Men only video game? Or X-Men characters (aside from Wolverine, who is also an Avenger) appear in a video game? Or X-Men ANYTHING outside of the comics? I mean come on, X-Men used to be all over everything. They were the kings of Marvel for over an entire decade, even more popular than Avengers. Sure, there are the shows, Legion and The Gifted. But those are made by Fox and ONLY because Marvel gave them permission as a sign of good faith in the hopes of eventually borrowing some of the other Fox movie characters for the MCU. But you can't honestly believe that all the X-Men merchandise and video games and clothing and everything else just stopped one day for no reason... A very small amount of people actually follow comics in relation to movies and video games. The idea is to keep X-Men out of the public eye so that it effects the Fox made movies' ticket sales. Then Fox would want to either sell the movie rights back or stop making X-Men films until the rights revert back to Marvel after 7 years. Keeping the comics doesn't hurt that plan because the majority of people going and seeing movies don't even read comics.
Uhh, lesse: Several mobile games, several heavily publicized comic arcs (and yes, I do mean publicized), posters, kids party supplies... It's out there, my guys.
Oh God, people need to stop with the ridiculous Miles Morales fanfics. The two can co-exist, you putzes. They have for a long while now.
I'm all for the next good spidy or batman game. I just hope Marvel doesn't infect the gaming industry like it has the movie industry. Like there is no other idea for a movie unless it's introducing a super hero, or mashing them together. I am personally getting sick of it, I couldn't play fractured butt whole because of it. Ironically though, I enjoyed the hell out of incredibles 2.
>Infect It's not the fault of the person doing good if the people doing bad can only chase trends, my guy. Harp on them, not Marvel.
I didn't mean to rip on Marvel at all. I respect them and What they do helps a lot of people. I just don't see it translating well into movies almost ever. So I was just voicing my opinion that I hope it doesn't happen with games. Imagine a time where most of what comes out is super hero games, and any normal story games do not make as much for investors. So they will always flow in an opposite direction to the market. Again this is just me getting ahead of my self and applying to video games what I see is happening to the movie industry.
anyone else still waiting to see what Rocksteady are working on?
Whatever it is, it'll likely have MTs.
Was wondering would be MVGU or MGU, I prefer the latter.
whoopty doo doo spidey swings on strings Rocksteady's Superman's gonna fly
Wolverine game from Platinum, please. M rated and can cut people and things in pieces similar to MGR.
Wolverine Origins was an awesome game.
Yeah, I enjoyed that game really.
The wolverine movie game on ps3 was really good actually.
I'm not sure if I like the idea of an MGU. the problem with Marvel is too many for it's stories are focused in NYC, which wouldn't be a problem for movies, but for games it really feels lazy to do games in the same setting. the other games will need to be focused on other places.
At last marvel have woke up and realised you need quality developers to do bring the whole marvel universe to life. Not some low budget money making publisher.
Did I miss something? Spiderman is being developed by a top sony studio, no other marvel games have been confirmed to in development by another sony studio. 3rd party developers just won't be able to hold a candle to what we are seeing in this spiderman game.
