    It is very easy and it was explain by other before. Rise of the Tomb Raider was announced for all system before Microsoft sign an exclusive deal...

    Spiderman was an exclusive games since the beginning. The most popular Marvel character into an exclusive franchise is illogical... Business is business, Marvel wanted a deal with Sony for Spiderman movies right and Disney /Marvel compromise and gives the rights to Sony for Spiderman games... Sony has an other advantage they are the leader by far with PS4...

    My main critic is some people prefer have a mediocre multiplatform Spiderman game than a good or very good exclusive one...

    I am fan of Insomniac Games and I only have a PS4. I never cry when they did Sunset Overdrive. It is life I have done my choice if I was Halo and Gears fans I would have buy an Xbox One...

    Exclusive Games are part of the game after every people do some choice...

    Who cares about Spiderman? Lol. Yah, just some unpopular character, but Tomb Raider is a big deal.

    Not doubting you, but did really was presented as a multiplatform??

    It could be argued that spidey as a beloved character has been since the dawn of this industry in countless video games, so it would be logical to expect a multiplatform game, as usual.

    "My main critic is some people prefer have a mediocre multiplatform Spiderman game than a good or very good exclusive one..."

    Really?, come on... what a correlation did you present.

    Anyway, this is business.

    TR was most definitely originally presented as multi.

    Not sure what's been argued here. I thought this has been filed in the "it's business, get over it" cabinet

    It was misfiled under Faux Rage and Entitlement, and cc'd into Life Ain't Fair.

    Mock outrage has no cabinet.

    I don't trust Activision with movie tie in to produce a great Spiderman Games...

    If the quality was there I will be happy to play it like Xbox player were happy to play Sunset Overdrive or Quantum Break or Halo 5, HaloWars 2, multiple Forza, before end of the year Gears of War 4 or Dead Rising 3 or Ori, Cuphead, Below or Inside, Dead Rising 4 and Rise of the Tomb Raider one year before PS4 player...

    Well the OP didn't really ask a question to spark a discussion. They answered a question so as to cast aspersions. That's why I describe the OP in this way.

    Thanks to @chris1515 for confirming what I suspected and that the game was already announced for other platforms before it was announced as an exclusive. This should clarify for the original poster.

    EDIT: Oh, and I expect the game to be about as good as Superman 64.

    I believe the phenomenon discussed in this thread is called "selective outrage".

    There is no way that Spidey exclusive to playstation wasn't part of the deal because the publicly known details of the deal heavily favors Disney.

    What has removal of an old game got to do with an upcoming new Spidey game? it's not available on PSN either AFAICS. Activision tie-ins like TMNT and Spogebob are also removed according to your GAF thread.

    Because it is end of Activision license probably end of march...

    And now the Spiderman license for game is probably on Sony side...

    And it is linked to Activision stopping to do licensed games(SpongeBob, TMNT...)

    I'm not hugely surprised. Spider-Man Shattered Dimensions was originally announced in 2010 (yes, seven years ago) for 360, PS3 and even the DS and the recent Spiderman (or Spider-Man, don't attack me comic nerds) games from Activision were pure shit. I recall the last decent game being on PS2.

    Marvel's IP is now a big deal, pulling in billions in profits and they obviously don't want crappy games devaluing it. They've said exactly this recently [Polygon].

    The cancellation is either a sign that Activision's licensing deal with Marvel expired or Marvel brought pressure to bear on Activision over the quality of what they were working on. They obviously have a deal with Sony but that deal doesn't necessarily mean Sony are the only developer/publisher that Marvel want to partner with on Spidey IP.

    Including physics defying rope-physics, that I just can't forget whenever I see Spidey warp around gravity.

    As for the new game, I guess Infamous and Sunset Overdrive shows Insomniac do city traversal well. It'll be interested to her if Sony went to Insomniac or vice versa. I guess the former.

    Is absolutely shitty for gamers though, that major IP can be platform exclusive. Here's many of us wanting Nintendo to go cross-plat so we don't need to buy a Nintendo box to play Nintendo IP, and then someone ends up securing an exclusive on a property that really shouldn't be. Probably just a glitch related to the movie rights, but (non PS4) owning gamers should be protesting at Marvel. That or working on PS4 emulation on PC, to go with Switch emulation. :twisted:
