Spiderman has never failed to impress and gather love from people of all age groups be it a kid, teen, or an adult. The spiderman series is loved endlessly worldwide and have been constant hits on the big screen.
Recently the Marvel Cinematic Universe made an announcement of officially including spider man in the upcoming Marvel’s Avengers which served as good news for the fans.
However, a recent tweet by the PlayStation announcing the exclusivity of spiderman on PlayStation followed by the Crystal Dynamics making the same assertion as they officially posted saying’ “It’s never been a better time to be a spider-fan. The team at Crystal Dynamics, along with our partners, are overjoyed that we get to be a part of this hero’s gaming journey.
We can’t wait for you to add spider man to your Marvel Avengers roster in early 2021, as we have promised before, he will be available at no cost to the owners of the base games, exclusively on Playstation.” This led to a massive backlash by marvel fans and gamers especially the Xbox users. Several others tweeted to show their disappointment. A tweet said, “If this whole Spiderman PlayStation exclusivity leads to the X-men being exclusive to Xbox, I am not going to be pleased. Every player, regardless of platform, deserves to thwip and snkit.” The I’m happier ones are the gamers who have been waiting for it but wouldn’t be able to play because they own non- PlayStation systems since they felt betrayed about spiderman being a PlayStation exclusive hero. They believe it’s unfair for them that get to buy the same game, but with less content.
There have been speculations about Sony’s relationship with the spiderman franchise, which led to people to guess why the console gaming in regard to spiderman is happening. Because of this link between Sony and Spiderman, it was easier for Sony to convince Marvel to include Spiderman exclusively for PlayStation.
It does seem that Sony didn’t make the right move by announcing spiderman’s exclusivity on PlayStation, leaving a lot of people disappointed and unhappy about this they have no options as such than switching on to PlayStation systems to enjoy playing the Marvel Avengers game as their favorite Spiderman’s character.
