The Sony E3 2016 Press Conference has took place Monday night and it brought quite a few surprises to fans. One of those surprises came towards the end of the press conference when we were all presented with an in game trailer for a brand new Spider Man game. Now this isn’t just any other Spider Man game. This is a PS4 exclusive Spider Man game developed by none other than Insomniac Games. This was exciting news and it’s why I think this could be the a console seller.
In the weeks leading up to E3 it was rumored that developer Sucker Punch was making a Spider Man game. Given they had worked on the Infamous series it seemed like they would be a perfect fit to make Spider Man. However instead we have Insomniac Games doing it and that might be even better news. Insomniac games have long been crafting great playing and great looking games whether you look at the Ratchet & Clank franchise, Resistance or even Sunset Overdrive. I think this could be the best Spider Man game ever created with Insomniac behind it. The movement system in Sunset Overdrive gives me great confidence that they can make the movement in Spider Man feel smooth and fluid. I have no doubt the visuals will be great as the footage we saw already wowed us. Insomniac has been crafting beautiful games for a long time now anyway.
Most of all I think it will be fun because just about every Insomniac developed game has been. Ratchet & Clank and Sunset Overdrive are some of the most fun games I’ve played in my gaming years so I’m sure you can lay any fears of that to rest. Now I think Spider Man PS4 could be a system seller for several reasons. One being that Spider Man is one of the most iconic super heroes of all time. Another reason is because this game will most likely be released in 2017 when the new Spider Man: Homecoming movie by Marvel is releasing. Now the game isn’t tied to the movie according to Insomniac Games but just having it out around the same time will lead to huge success. The brand new Spider Man appeared in the recent Captain Amercia: Civil War movie and by and large was one of the best parts about that movie. Everyone loved the new Spider Man and everyone is going to be hyped to go see his new standalone movie.
Kids that see the movie will be wanting to play a new Spider Man game and the only place they’ll be able to get it is on PlayStation 4. Older fans like myself will buy it because not only are we Spider Man fans but we know who Insomniac Games his and we know of their pedigree. Sony is going to have another major exclusive from Insomniac Games in their repertoire and you can bet it’s going to pay off big for them. I know I can’t wait to see more and play what could be one of the best super hero games ever made. What did you think of the Spider Man announcement during Sony’s E3 Event?
