Nothing will change, except that we will get a sequel or two from Insomniac. The endgame heavily hints at a sequel in the works. Insomniac does sequels to most of their IPs.

Oh, and roflol at people thinking Spider-Man will ever come to another platform. Sony owns the rights to Spider-Man. Go port-beg somewhere else!

Damn man. Harsh. There are Marvel fans legitimately upset about this. I'd blow a nut if I had to shell out for a console for one game this late in a gen and I bought a 360 for Alan wake, that was painful four years in. Poor bastards will have to either buy a Ps4, hope the ps5 is backward compatibile or not play the game. 

A used PS4 is $100 though. And I can list at least 5 absolute must have exclusives. 10 if you only own an XB1, and not a capable PC.

I've been saying Avalanche or Sucker punch should do a spiderman game for ages now, never woulda guessed it'd be Insomniac. Maybe there is a studio out there, that's not so obvious who'd kill at a superman game cause Insomniac is busy for the next few years... I hope. 



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

Yeah, it's a no brainer but not every Marvel fan has disposable income of their own. ;)

lol, Kids need to learn to get jobs. Adults need to learn how to balance bills. If somebody can't afford $100 for a console, then they have bigger problems than games. I doubt they can afford all the games they want on whatever platform they already own.

Why are people using Nier Automata and Hellblade argument? They were never announced as exclusive(only announced platform they are coming) and Sony never said they were exclusive. Spider-man has always been talked by sony, marvel and Insomniac being ps4 exclusive. Marvel even said multiple times in interviews that spider-man will stay with sony and insomniac so they probably have some kind of deal for multiple games ( I can give you youtube interview and some websites about that).

Square Enix have a Marvel game in works so hopefully thats good. I think all other games including that Square Enix game will be multiplat. I feel like Insomniac games are perfect for most Marvel games, because Insomniacs humor fits marvel.

Yeah, I was led to believe this was in the same line, I wasn't following this game til the reviews hit and had little interest until I took a chance on it. I didn't know it was confirmed as full exclusive until someone linked above. Sucks for PC gamers and xbox players but at least Sony gets another exclusive, big hitter and as a ps4 gamer, I can't complain. People will just have to suck it up, stop crying on stream chats and forums and buy a ps4. 

As we recently found out, Marvel reached out to Sony for this. They could have just dealt with Insomniac directly, but they probably wanted Sony to help promote this game. Marvel specifically asked that Sony contract this to Insomniac. But the most surprising thing to me was that they let Insomniac chose any Marvel character they wanted. I think they made the right choice with Spidey.

I can see Marvel doing this again with Sony as this one seems to have turned out really well. But they’ll probably have other multi plat games as well, or even make the same kind of deal with Microsoft or Nintendo.

I still think Rocksteady is working on that Superman game. Its obvious but it makes sense.

Doesn't Sony own the Spiderman IP? It's not coming to xbox, other marvel games sure; not spiderman though.

Edit: apparently Sony, Marvel, and Disney all have some sort of stake in the Spiderman property.

sony owns the movie rights nothing more. comics, cartoons,merchandising etc are all owned Marvel

Why would anyone give their property to MS? They've been running their own IPs into the ground for a decade now. Halo and Gears are mere shells of their former selves, Fable is dead. Forza is literally the only franchise that is still doing well for them. 

I imagine Marvel went to Sony because Sony is the most award winning publisher of the last decade, and has more critically successful/accalimed titles than any other publisher, and has had at least one GOTY contender almost every year. No other publisher in the industry comes close to Sony atm. And it seems Marvel made the right choice as Sony gave managed to delver yet another critically successful blockbuster.

wrong sony only owns the film rights nothing else. Sony sold the merch rights back to Disney in 2011
