Spidey is going to be absolutely huge for Sony.
Spider-Man is almost here, and hype for the game is ramping up day by day, to the point where it’s looking like it might end up becoming one of Sony’s biggest games of all time. Apparently, pre-order performances of the game have been very, very good, and Insomniac are, obviously, flattered that people are already putting so much faith in them and their game.
“It’s very flattering people would put their money and faith in us already,” Insomniac Community Manager James Stevenson said in an interview with Stuff. A large reason for why it’s been performing as well as it has been, I think, has to be the game’s incredible marketing. Other than some elaborate subway train shenanigans, Sony have also released new trailers detailing several aspects of the game in the build up to its launch.
If you’re worried that these trailers or all the footage that’s come out for the game so far might have spoiled some stuff for you, don’t be. “I think there’s a lot of responsibility on fans, to guard themselves if they decide to, as much as there’s a responsibility on us to not show too much in some ways,” he said. “I don’t know, people debate spoiler culture and if it’s needed, it’s a relatively new thing. I will say in this, we’ve been trying to to surprise people and to shake things up in a way that’s rewarding.”
Spider-Man launches on September 7 exclusively for the PS4. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates.
