Shu tweeted earlier and confirmed everything at the Sony conference was running on standard PS4 not Neo.

I've watched this trailer tons in the last 24 hours, I hope they show more soon

Cool. I've not had a chance to see anything other than the conferences so that's good to hear. Answers some of the questions we had in the conference post-mortem.

Check out some of our stuff!

See the Osborn billboard in the top left at the end of the GIF? Wonder if this is a sort of confirmation that Green Goblin will make an appearance? Can imagine an aerial Goblin/Spidey battle over the streets of NYC :wub:

I hope they have New York in this as Marvels New York, have Avengers tower, Oscorp The Raft and other Marvel related buildings

Marvel shares new info about their console plans, Spider-Man will be ongoing

http://venturebeat.com/2016/06/16/jay-ong-describes-marvels-return-to-blockbuster-games-with-spider-man/

http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2016-06-15-spider-man-leads-marvels-epic-new-console-strategy

Jay's team is specifically focused on console-style games for Marvel. The mobile and social stuff is already hitting it out of the park, so his group is dedicated to making their console games great again.

Insomniac/Sony's Spider-Man series will be the only console Spider-Man series going forward. They want to find excellent teams and then dedicate the IPs to them so they can focus on quality. That's not to say Spider-Man can't be in a cross-over game, but you won't see something like Activision console Spider-Man games coming out alongside these.

Movie tie-in games are over for Marvel. This is the same as their mobile strategy. All games will be given lengthy development cycles with all the budget they need and have no concerns about hitting a specific date tied to a movie/comic book/whatever. Marvel is very clear that developers cannot be rushed or underfunded if they're going to make great games.

That said, Jay notes that on the mobile side, the games tend to have tie-in events when films or certain initiatives like Women of Marvel launch. He doesn't explicitly commit to this happening on the console side, since it probably varies a lot per game, but don't be super shocked if you have downloadable skins or DLC for a game when a movie or comic book initiative comes out, especially if it's a living product.

When asked about whether Marvel's console games will have cross-overs and cameos like the films do, he states "The world's full of surprises. You never know."
Jay notes that in the past, they used to take about 30% of console game opportunities that are presented to them. These days it's more like 10%.
He's also clear that Marvel will only work with developers who they think will make excellent, top tier titles instead of just "good" games. So far their two publicly announced partners are Insomniac and Telltale. He speaks very fondly of the LEGO games, but IIRC that's run out of the mobile licensing division.

Marvel will also only work with developers who are clearly very excited about the IP itself instead of just the IP's money making potential. He notes that he can usually tell within the first 30 seconds if someone is actually passionate about the IP in question.
There's an implication that the publishing partner is also important to them. I imagine this is especially true for retail games.

Jay mentions that the success of the films and the success of their top mobile games, along with the break away from the movie game model, has resulted in way more developers being interested in working with them. He mentions that developers have even gotten more open to the idea during his two year tenure as titles like Marvel: Contest of Champions have crossed $200 million.

As for working with Insomniac specifically, Jay mentions that they're only 10 minutes away from the studio and 10 minutes away from Sony as well, so that they're in contact every day, which they think is very helpful for getting their new initiative going well. They also openly admit that Spider-Man is the most commercially successful superhero so they're more than happy to start with him.

Jay notes they have several other console games in development that will be revealed over the upcoming years. I probably wouldn't expect an immediate impending announcement (beyond perhaps unveiling Telltale's game) since he wasn't teasing any more reveals soon.

It's funny how Marvel are always talking about cross-overs, other games in the series or what other heroes might get their own games.

I imagine that they'd be awful on a first date. You'd just be sitting there enjoying a nice lunch, and they'd start talking about weddings and babies and holidays in the Cotswolds with the dog.

I hope Insomniac ask Activision really nicely and give them some money so they can just use the practically perfect webslinging system from Spider-Man 2. The best since then has been Lego Marvel Superheroes :lol:

To be honest I have faith in them to make a web slinging system that works as well and slickly as Sunset Overdrive's grinding, walljumping and whatnot. I'm really, really excited for this. :wub:

A shame, but one which I an accept given that it won't be launching until early 2018.

I'll believe it when I'm playing it :lol: What a crazy year if it happens, though. Is that new Uncharted set for 2017 as well?

Sony goes to cupboard in 2018: *there are no games*

Apparently God of War was completed last year in terms of being able to play from beginning to end, I'm assuming this year will be spent ironing out bugs and adding polish.

As for Days Gone, I have no idea where development is up to.
