Bryan Intihar, Creative Director on Marvel's Spider-Man, said that the game wouldn't exist if it wasn't for the support PlayStation provided. He particularly pointed out Mark Cerny for all the help.
Glad to hear it!
Playstation providing Players with games + Nintendo + PC + Phone/Tablets providing what gamers need.
I've owned a phone for years and I yet to experience one that fulfilled my gaming needs.
So does xbox. Stop hating and game on all systems if you got the means too. Don't hate if you never tried it. Live is the best service and gamepass is awesome.
BROWN_KNIGHT - I can hate what I want, MS are a disgusting, conniving, dishonest company. Lucky they have Windows, because everything else has been a failure. PlayStation all day, everyday.
Brown You should add in your opinion Game pass is a necessity for Xbox due up poor development of 1st party games. It's easy to put your 68/100 AAA exclusives on game pass Xblive and psn are almost the same service stop trying to make one look better than the other. End of the day we shouldn't be paying to play online and these series should be optional like it was on ps3 I bought OG Xbox over the ps2 so I have every right to criticize ms and it's strategy which failed. By now Xbox brand should be world wide brand like Nintendo and Sony yet it's not and is very much behind playstation in name recognition Stop calling things the best that is how these companies become full of themselves and greed and feel like they don't need to go the extra mile for gamers because what they feel they are doing is good enough OG Xbox showed potential to grow yet since then Xbox brand hasn't grown much
Are you implying that Phone/Tablets is better than MS platforms?
eating glue is better than XBOX
Right now, yes.
Cerny is an absolute genius when it comes to getting extra power out of a PS console.
Cerny is an incredible asset for Sony. It's great that Sony gives developers the freedom to make the games they want while simultaneously providing the support they need to make the games great.
He also produced Sonic the Hedhehog 2 , Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dwagon, Jak and Daxter and Uncharted . All iconic platformers. What a legendary guy! Architect of the PS4. Wow! If Nintendo has Miyamoto, PlayStation has Mark Cerny.
he created it so i hope so
The power of futuristic engineers (Cerny) allied with a great company (Sony) and permanent support of great developers like Insomniac = Secret Sauce. Difference from others is, this secret sauce really works!
I sure hope so, he was the lead architect on the damn thing.
Insomniac Games and Mark Cerny, what a great combo.
" I’m telling you, anytime I wanted to do something and I want to make a drastic change, it was like, ‘Okay’. I never heard about anything, it was like ‘Go do it!’. The question was ‘Is it going to make the game better?’ and I’d say, ‘Yep’, and they’d go, ‘Okay’, and that would be the last time I’d hear about it. " Enabling developers. That's a huge reason why Sony published games are so great.
Absolutely true. Sony continues to allow game developers freedom, and with that, has come so many fantastic games. All of the developers (whether owned by Sony or independent studios like Insomniac and Quantic Dream have worked incredibly hard to earn Sony’s trust and the freedom they’ve been given to go about their business in creating these games that they’re all so passionate and proud of. And to think, because of that trust & freedom, Sony’s studios have created such incredible gaming experiences with new iP’s such as The Last of Us, Horizon: Zero Dawn, God of War (not a new iP, but a fresh new take which was needed & a masterpiece) Detroit: Become Human, and while not a new iP, Insomniac got the opportunity to craft a Spider-Man, which is absolutely fantastic & a joy to play. I have faith their developers will continue to amaze & shock us gamers with TLoU 2, Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, Days Gone, and Dreams.
Im confused as to why microsoft cant replicate this. They have tons of money. Hire some great talent and get out of the way!!
They may have the money, but, the culture and work ethic of the teams involved just don't even come close.
The generalisation that MS makes games for an American audience is absolutely true. Their management have an American mind frame similar to EA, as a result they publish half baked games designed to make money fast rather than focus on the quality and watch sales grow over time. If they saw the end goal about how games sell in the long run rather than how games sell short term Scalebound would have made it to market.
Playstation for the win !! Thank you Sony for making Spider-man great again ;)
That's a culture at Sony as a game publisher. - Okay - Do it - Go for it A trust. Simple yet difficult to mimic.
Not difficult at all. Trust comes with time. Insomniac earned as did naughty dog.
That's why i said it's difficult. It takes time and experience to judge people and say "okay, go for it, do it". You can't mimic it right away, you need experience and time in this business. And Cerny is a veteran in this field. Can you trust anyone whom you just met to run your business?. If it's easy, every game will be good because they are a result of right decisions, but we know that's not the reality.
i wonder if mark cerny added some cool stuff in the code for a next gen port if Cerny is indeed designing the PS5 like he did 4.
Well, Sony does own the rights to Spiderman.
No, they don't. They own film rights, that's it. They do, however, now currently hold the game license.
What is with people spouting this BS? Sony only owns the movie rights. Saying that because they own those movie rights they owned the property entirely is like saying they own Resident Evil and Angry Birds
That's because without a doubt, playstation is the best and the best gaming platform.
Everyone else is fighting for a distant second.
As long as Sony and Get my continue to support devs in making great games they'll always have my support.
This is why Sony is dominating; they focus mostly on games. Everything else is second.
It's my Son's 11th Birthday on the 9th of next month and I'm getting him this game. He loves Spiderman. I'm not really into Spiderman (I was when I was a kid back in the 70's and 80's) so it's not really a game I'd buy for myself. I get the feeling though I'll probably like this game as much as my Son.
You will! Its a blast watching my 12yr old have fun with it.
'No cross play, I thought Sony was FoR tHe PlAyErS?' Meanwhile^
Yea it’s not like Sony own the license for it or anything??
They dont. They own the movie rights. But now they own the rights to the game but hey nice try xboxer
I think the point he is trying to make is that Sony will let s talented dev be creative and take chances which is obvious with the quality of this game and any other PS exclusive whether 1st or 2nd party!
MS take huge notes on a billboard. This is what’s gamers want. This is how you listen to gamers. Never comment on twitter again thinking you know what’s best for us.
This wasn't just a case were Sony threw money at a 3rd party dev and told them to make a Spider-man movie tie-in. They actually allowed Insomniac to choose any Marvel character to make the game around and Insomniac chose Spider-man. Sony could've easily chosen Spider-man themselves considering they own the movie rights and a Spider-man game could only help to bolster popularity. But they allowed Insomniac to choose the character because they simply wanted the best game possible and they wanted the developer to be passionate about it. If Insomniac had chosen Thor Sony would've still supported them just as enthusiastically and it likely would've been a great game just like Spider-man. This is what makes Sony great and this is why they continue churning out GotY's.
Pretty sure if they wanted to they could have made a Doctor Bong videogame. That's how much choice Insomniac has. If there's one thing that's true about Sony is that they give their developers plenty of choices.
Great to hear that Sony helped make this game possible. I know many are complaining that it's exclusive but this proves that it needed the exclusivity to even exist.
Cue to be ignorant folk who for some reason still think this game only came about because of movie licensing
I can't wait to see what Mark Cerny's genius mind is doing with the Playstation 5.
Thank you Sony for this. The support that Sony give to their developers is amazing. No wonder their first party studios are rising to legendary levels in the industry. We should promote Mark Cerny to Legendary General of the Playstation Army.
Some people say that Sony studios are more talented than others but I don't see it that way. What I see is Sony trusting their studios by giving them the budget and time they need to achieve what they want to accomplish. What I see is Sony taking as much potential from their studios as they can and I believe that if other publishers had the same trust in their studios, then we would see games of the same caliber from them.
Would have made a lot more money if it was multiplat.
Upvote for your funny name lololol.
Maybe a little more money.
It can still make a lot money if people stopped taking sides
Maybe - but it wouldn't have been as good, it is optimised for PlayStation. And being multiplatform would mean funding from a publisher, who would tinker and change things. Rush things along. No, best decision was making it exclusive AND a PlayStation exclusive at that.
If it was multiform then Sony wouldn’t have been the publisher and investor in the game. I don’t think we would have gotten the same game if it went multiplatform. So while it might have sold more it wouldn’t be what people are playing now.
Like if Activision had made it? Oh....wait
Ehhhh Sony got first party games that are selling more than many multiplayer game’s lifetime sales in just 4 months. (GOW) I think they’ll be good with how much they make.
Spider-Man was multiplat for over a decade and didn’t do diddly. So there goes that theory.
Captain obvious....Playstation actually value exclusives unlike Xbox where multiplats are console exclusives and time exclusives are exclusives...and exclusive "content" is also a reason to shout "Xbox exclusive".
It’s definitely true it would have made more money as a multiplat. Disagrees or not. I appreciate that it is a Sony exclusive, but facts are facts.
Personally I think mark did this on the side... He's probably very busy developing the ps5 😁
Mark Cerny has always been a genius, he made Marble Madness back in the Atari golden age. One of the best arcade games ever.
See, good Producers can be a good thing, and Insomniac left Sony, and what happened? Can they sustain themselves? Nope, they're having to find a publisher for Sunset Overdrive 2. Microsoft don't care, they just wanted to play with one of Sonys toys to try and make em throw a fit, so what happens when Insomniac comes back versus Sunset Overdrive? It's sounding like Ted Price needs to take a walk. He builds a good team, but makes horrible business decisions. So the PS3 struggled a bit, Nintendo struggled for a bit after the Super Nintendo, that doesn't mean you abandon em, Game Freak didn't ditch Nintendo.
Dude they released one exclusive game on Xbox and since then they released only on PlayStation as they did previous gens. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be aroundif they they didn’t know what they were doing.
Mark Cerney was with Insomniac when Spyro was conceived. Nice to see they still work closely together.
Game of the generation
