I really wanted to be excited for this, but the only Spider-Man game that every held my attention was the PS1 game.

I've enjoyed the others I've tried, especially Ultimate Spider-Man, but I just get bored of them after a while. I think it's because I enjoy the swinging and traversal, but not the actual sandboxes.

This game will be the Arkham Asylum/City of this gen.

It can compete with GoW and RDR2 for GOTY 2017 if it's great.

Still baffled by how good this looks visually. I was expecting RDR2 to be the next open world king visually but it doesn't even come close to Spiderman. Amazing achievement for Insomniac, looks like it's going to dethrone Horizon as the best looking open world (and game in general?) once it's out for sure.

Sony pictures and SIE are separate divisions. These deals were likely made independent of each other. The exclusivity is still baffling particularly in the US. Sales potential is limited. Spider-Man is a multi platform property.

Sony is one of only publishers, if not the only one, willing to fund AAA pure singleplayer games.

In fact, Marvel was the one who approached Sony to make the deal. They wanted a Spiderman game with their first party production DNA and quality.

Sony then approached Insomniac to make it. Which is really telling of their relationship, since I would think Sony would made it internal (Sucker Punch maybe?), but it seems they really trust Insomniac.

Why? Did you see a massive graphics downgrade in Sunset Overdrive or Rachet & Clank? I'm asking seriously because Insomniac hasn't been known to do that with their games.

Without question. Could be approaching CoD numbers if it comes out near Infinity War.

Based on what exactly? It's not even better looking than Horizon which released 8 months ago.

Whatever SP are working on must be big. Nary a peep from them since Infamous SS almost 4 years ago.

Spider-Man is way bigger than the walls within Sony. Can I remind you that Spider-Man Homecoming has a special VR experience just for PSVR?

I doubt it. Only gaf worries about qte's but the mass market will lap it up since they are needed to show off over the top Spider-Man blockbuster moments which are not possible to pull off in normal gameplay.

You're right though, those 3 are aready a lock in that discussion. Sonys lineup for 2018 looks the strongest by far.
Nintendo ususally holds their stuff pretty tight before release but they didn't do that last E3 so I'm not too sure what to expect from them next year, and Microsoft... eh...

It was really prevalent in the latest look they gave us. More than most AAA games I can remember in the past few years. I don't think anybody is saying that the whole game will play like that, but it is concerning to people who don't like them, especially not in that abundance. I don't understand what's there to trivialize if someone holds that opinion.

It's not like this thread incites some actual discussion about something besides stating how impressive those numbers are. It's a big game with a lot of people watching, and a lot of people loathe QTE's since a decade or more for obvious reasons.
