    Does Activision get the right to publish Spiderman 3 from Sony (or is it Marvel)? I bet Sony paid out the ass for this right.

    The fact the Sony owns the rights to the movie probably means they own the rights to games based on the movies. Which probably means they didn't pay Activision anything but kindly hinted that if they didn't do anything they wouldn't get the contract next time. Or something similar.

    You knew this was going to happen. Perfect synergy with the Spiderman/PlayStation 3 font.

    It looks like it is just the "collectors edition" that is exclusive to PS3. From the interview portion:

    I personally feel that Sony should have made Spiderman a big budget PS3-exclusive and hype it like grazy, as it's a huge franchise which owns the box office. In my opinion quality Spiderman game with solid marketing tied with the movie would most likely be an outstanding success for Sony game studios. Now all the leverage they get is the special edition and the..err.. font...
    So much potential, wasted.

    Edit: BTW the thread title is misleading.

    it would probably be a good idea if they could pull it off, but I would think Marvel would have the final word on such a deal, and considering how they milk the franchise I can't see them letting it be exclusive to any one platform.

    Maybe they'll do it with Casino Royale.

    Same problem. In this case EA holds the rights to all James Bond games. Only possible way would be paying EA to make an exclusive and honestly, I don't really want to play an EA JB game. :razz:

    The pictures look AWFUL in my opinion. I can't believe it's supposed to be a game for the PS3. It's almost like they just ported over the PS2 version to the PS3, and made it high def but added little or no improvements.

    I loved the previous Spiderman games. I played them at a friends house. But the graphics on this one is HORRIBLE if it's supposed to be a PS3 game.

    I too am surprised, but I guess it's a case of Sony Pictures wanting as much money as possible, rather than Sony overall wanting a cohesive, cross-industry, synergistic platform strategy that leverages Sony's IPs to extend Sony hardware.

    I think they should have given this game a bigger budget. It looks awful.

    Seems like chroniceyestrain got it right. The rights switch from EA to Activision in Sept. 2007

    Graphics were never the factor that made the previous spiderman movie games good. It was the gameplay.

    That said, I hope this one has similar gameplay like the older ones. Free roaming spiderman was pretty fun.

    badboy,

    You are right. The gameplay was GREAT in the previous games. However, this is the PS3 we are talking about. It's absolutely pathetic for them to have a PS3 game that looks like an HD version of a PS2 game.

    That is three times now that you post in this thread complaining that the game looks crap. I think though that maybe you should do it a few times more, because I don't think anyone got the message just yet. :lol:

    Personally I think it looks way better than the last gen version. Maybe you can point me to some screens of the older versions that look even remotely close to these? Besides, It's Activison making this right? I don't expect 1st party quality graphics from them.

    Here are some Spiderman 2 for the PS2 screenshots.

    http://media.ps2.ign.com/media/566/566218/imgs_1.html

    The only difference between these screenshots is that the PS3 game is in HD and *may* have slightly improved graphics. In my opinion, the two games look very similar.

    The PS3 is a very powerful console. It should NOT look at all similar to the PS2 game.
