PS4 Exclusive Spider-Man Game is Coming This Year

Insomniac Games, best known for the Ratchet and Clank series, are making a PS4 exclusive Spider-Man game.

If you love Spiderman you had also better love the PlayStation 4, because vice president and executive editor of Marvel Digital Media Ryan Penagos has just spilled the beans on a PS4 exclusive Spiderman game from Ratchet and Clank developers Insomniac Games, releasing this year.

In a livestream captured on reddit, Penagos stated that "there's even more on the horizon for 2017 like Spider-Man coming to PlayStation 4 and Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC." We had previously heard that Insomniac Games was developing a Spider-Man game back at E3 2016, but at the time we didn't know what platforms it would be for, and what the release window would be.

Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have partnered for Spider-Man: Homecoming, the second theatrical reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. So, it doesn't come as too big of a surprise that PlayStation, owned by Sony, was able to snag the new Spidey game as an exclusive.

You can read more about the game on Insomiac's official website.

As long as he looks like Tobey Maguire or like the classic comic book version (which is still Tobey Maguire), I'm in.

PS4 exclusive huh?
Guess it won't come to PC untill a year later or so then.

I don't know about that... I mean, I want all platform users to be able to enjoy any game, obviously, but in the case of Sony exclusives they seem to be willing to stick to their guns on the 'exclusive' part. Looking back at Bloodborne and how that's apparently never coming to any other platforms, I have a sneaking suspicion anyone who doesn't own a PS4 might be out of luck here. :\

Now the real question. Is it any good?

The minority of people not owning a ps4 out of the minority of people who still buy spiderman games will be devastated.

If it's good, is that enough of an apology from Sony if they do take Spidey away from the MCU back to their shitty, incompetent writers/producers?

As an exclusive I wouldn't have a chance to boycott not buy it if they do try that...

Fingers crossed for future Marvel games being decent, and also being multi-platform.

Didn't we see this already, like a few months ago?
