Marvel's Spider-Man Gets 33% Price Drop

PS4-exclusive action-adventure game Marvel's Spider-Man gets a permanent price drop and now price $39.99 only.

Without a doubt, Marvel's Spider-Man from developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment is one of the biggest games of 2018 and we have an overwhelming fan-response to back that claim up as well.

Though the hype for this PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure title has been died down a little after the five months of launch and people are being ready for new games in 2019, Sony decided to offer a big discount on the title and took $20 off permanently.

Bringing the price down to $39.99 for Spider-Man on PS4 is not something new that the company has done. During Black Friday of 2018, the game was discounted by the same amount and was also given away with a limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro Bundle.

However, this permanent price drop on one of the best games of 2018 can cause a small spike on the sales number once again. Many fans who waited for an occasion like this would probably reach out their controller now to go swinging in New York as Spidey.

As soon as the hype died down, Sony dropped price on Detroit: Become Human, God of War and Shadow of the Colossus Remastered too on last year. You can now purchase the game from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, PlayStation Store and Walmart on the discounted price.

Within the month of its release, Marvel's Spider-Man managed to become the fastest-selling PS4 game ever and even earned more than the opening weekend of Spider-Man: Homecoming movie by selling over 3.3 million physical copies.

Marvel's Spider-Man Adds Fantastic Four-Themed Suits

Insomniac Games have added the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in the latest update for Marvel's Spider-Man.

As developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment finished rolling out "The City That Never Sleeps" DLC series for their PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel's Spider-Man, fans can still hope for some new content.

If you have finished rounding up New York City in his iconic red and blue suit alongside tons of other versions that was introduced to the game so far, then it is time for you to try out some new suits, two new Fantastic Four-themed suits to be specific.

Wondering what Fantastic Four and Spider-Man have in common? Well, ever since the Wall-Crawler debuted as a hero in his teens, he tried to join "World's Greatest Family" showing off his talent but only ended up fighting them instead.

The family of four has teamed-up with the Webhead on multiple occasions and was even featured in many mini-series of their own. One of the writers of the game, Christos Gage (Thunderbolts – Secret Invasion, World War Hulk – X-Men) has penned one in 2010 titled "Spider-Man/Fantastic Four".

In Amazing Spider-Man #258, Spidey goes to Fantastic Four headquarter seeking help to get rid of the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume, which later eventually became Venom. They were successful of getting rid of the suit but he was left only in his underpants.

Spider-Man had to borrow one of their costumes but since they don't have masks, the Human Torch had to improvise an idea to conceal Peter Parker's secret identity and he gave him a grocery bag to wear, thus came the identity of the Bombastic Bag-Man.

Then there was another instance following "Big Time" story arc, when the Wall-Crawler joined the team for real but then they were calling themselves the Future Foundation. This time, Spidey wore a slick-looking black and white costume.

Now, players can simply fancy themselves wearing the Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suits in Marvel's Spider-Man with the release of patch 1.14 on PlayStation Network. With the Fantastic Four returning to Marvel Comics once again, these new suits came just in time.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Becomes Fastest-Selling PS4 Game Ever

Marvel’s Spider-Man breaks record and dethrones God of War by becoming fastest-selling PS4 title ever.

Today's pop culture generation is largely dominated by superheroes whether they appear in comics, movies or even on TV series but very rarely as video games. That is because, studios are afraid to fail in delivering an honest to source adaptation and therefore having a poor reception.

Except for the Batman: Arkham series in the past, very few have succeeded both commercially and critically in this genre, until the recent release of PlayStation 4-exclusive title Marvel’s Spider-Man that has sold over 3.3 million copies within the first three days after launch while winning the hearts of critics as well.

The game has a retail price of $59.99 and 3.3 million copies literally translate to an estimated sum of $198 million, which clearly surpasses the opening weekend box office collection of $117 million by last year's Spider-Man: Homecoming movie.

The figure of game units sold also includes limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro Bundle sales but they didn't reveal how many units have they sold of this bundles. This definitely creates a history as it has even exceeded the sales of 2018's God of War.

Previously, there was many other iteration of the wall-crawling hero from New York, released over the platforms like Gameboy, PlayStation, Wii U and Xbox over the years. However, none came any closer to what developer Insomniac Games and publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment brought to the table.

Even after their attempt to mildly reinvent the age-old legacy of Spidey to a modern day audience, gameplay, graphics and story of the game was heavily praised by all.

RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man Gameplay Launch Trailer

The very concept of Spider-Man was created by writer Stan Lee (Thor, X-Men) and artist Steve Ditko (Hawk and Dove, Legion of Super-Heroes) in 1962 for Marvel Comics as he first appeared on the pages of in Amazing Fantasy, issue #15.

Then almost twenty years after, Spider-Man makes his first appearance in video game on 1982 for Atari 2600 system, which was simply titled after the name of the hero and also was the very first video game that featured a character from Marvel.

RELATED: Marvel’s Spider-Man Comics Inspirations

Sony is heavily excited about this because, Marvel’s Spider-Man is a first-party video game title that has come out for weeks now and the overwhelmingly positive consumer feedback suggests that it will sell a ton more in the upcoming months.

Insomniac Games have finally did some justice to Spider-Man by putting him into a game that tells more than a story of superhero and shows it to the world why he is the amazing friendly neighborhood bug that everyone is so very fond of.
