Spider-Man has been a huge critical success for both Marvel and Sony, quickly becoming the fastest selling game this year. Both fans and critics have showered it with praises, and it is the first ever game to receive the Marvel Stamp of Approval. But it seems like we would have never got to see New York’s swinging superhero if it wasn’t for Sony.
According to the game’s Creative Director, Bryan Intihar, the game would have never existed without Sony and their support. In a video interview with Kinda Funny, he said, “This game would not exist if it wasn’t for PlayStation, if not for their support. Any time I wanted to do something, and I wanted to make some drastic change, it was just like, ‘Okay’. I never heard about anything. It was just like, ‘Go do it.’ The question was, ‘Is it gonna make the game better?’ and I’d say, ‘Yep’, and they’d go, ‘Okay’, and that would be the last time I’d hear about it.”
We already know about how supportive and motivating Sony is towards its first-party titles, and here it seems like Insomniac had total control over the game’s creative aspects. The result, as we all have seen, is an amazing, fun-filled game.
