I am very excited as a life-long Spider-Man fan. Takes a certain kind of dedication to be reared on Maximum Carnage and the original Clone Saga and still fall in love with a character.

Considering it's Insomniac who is working on the game (Who's only really bad game was FUSE, which suffered from heavy meddling from EA, it looked a lot more interesting when it was originally revealed as Overstrike) I think this game should be in safe hands.

Good. Can't wait to play it. Really hope we get to play as Miles Morales too. Or at the very very minimum use his costume.

So when we count the AAA amazing super Hero games, Batman is certainly one of them.

I feel like Spiderman is about to have that light like how the Arkham games have.

I wonder what Rocksteady is doing next.

I wasn't even aware there was a ban. Hopefully we get something good out of it. From a narrative and gameplay perspective, there's so much that can be done so I'd love to see a developer handle them like Rocksteady handled Batman

This thread reminded my that, even after all of these amazing PS4 exclusives lately, we're still getting a AAA open world Spider-man by Insomniac, The Last of Us 2, Shadow of the Colossus remake, Media Molecule's Dreams, Death Stranding, and possibly Horizon 2, a new Fumito Ueda game, etc.

Don't Forget a new God of War as well. And this is before we reach the Playstation Experience which considering last years reveal, should hopefully have some big reveals as well.

C'mon Spyro Trilogy, I need one to go alongside my Crash Trilogy!

What's the best selling exclusive game (not inc. bundled) these past ten or so years anyway?

gta 5 and likely minecraft. mario kart wii is not far behind.

It's the Spider-Man YouTube thing. Putting Spider-Man in the title of your video is guaranteed views. I have a YouTube channel that I use for some random PS4 clips and some old Shadowplay stuff. Most videos have less than 200 views, with some videos having 0. I put up a 3 minute video of me fucking around with Ultimate Spider-Man on PC and it has over 10,000. Every few weeks I'll get a comment telling me I suck.

As someone whoís first ever game industry job was doing QA for Spider-Man 2, I canít express the joy I feel knowing that Spider-Man is in the hands of an excellent developer, and weíll more than likely finally be getting a genuinely good Spider-Man game, from graphics, to gameplay, to story. I never thought Iíd see this day. I thought Activision would have its talons in Spider-Man until the day I died.

Iíve watched the E3 video more times that I can count, but 40 million is super impressive. A lot of eyes are on this game, and probably for similar reasons as to why Iím excited for it as well.

Insomniac is one of my favorite developers, hands down. I almost bought an Xbox ONE for Sunset Overdrive, but I really couldnít justify a new console for one game (sorry, Insomniac!).

All the more reason first party studios should be doing licensed games with proper budgets and release schedules. I've always wanted to see this happen after Goldeneye on the N64. Hopefully, next gen, we see tons of these. I think every multiple team first party studio should devote one studio to a licensed title with a good sized budget and a lengthy development period. Focus on quality.

New Ueda PS4 game? Is that some kind of remotely realistic possibility?

Uncharted 4 is probably close to that (if not surpassed already), considering the last numbers we got from it were 8.7 million as of December 21 of 2016.

So it is not unheard of.

Halo also did huge numbers last gen too.

A big budgeted Spider-man made by Insomniac is like a dream come true. Spider-man is one of the biggest if not the biggest superhero in the world, Sony selling back the merchandising rights to Disney put them on pretty good terms with each other.

Kids love him:
