    We haven't heard anything about what the boys down at Treyarch are doing in regards to the next Spider-Man game, and it's pretty obviouse to me that it's going to be the game adapation of Spider-Man 3. I haven't heard anything in regards to what they've been doing post-Ultimate Spider-Man, but would it be that far-fetched to speculate that Spider-Man 3 might already be in developement for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3? I would certainly hope so, if they want to give the game the developement time it's going to need to not be a [email protected]$$ed rush-job. I don't want to see them wait until six-months from when the movie comes out and then just slap it together as fast as they can, especially since they're probably going to be working in new territory on next-gen systems.

    I really hope that this time Activision is getting more involved with the process, and tries to keep good communication between Treyarch and the creative forces working on the film. They should try and make it feel as authentic to the movie as possible, the way EA did with the Lord of the Rings games and Ubi-Soft did with King Kong. Why should Spider-Man 3 simply be "a decent tie-in", when it can be a legitimately awesome game? I hope that Activision and Treyarch pours their heart and soul into making SM3 one of the best movie tie-in games since Goldeneye!

    Yes, it is in development for the XBox 360 and the PS3. Not for the Revolution apparently as they only hired teams for a 360 and PS3 version.

    If you look closer, Venom is driving a yellow Subaru.

    No...of course not. Venom would not drive a Subaru. He would drive an black Hummer.

    I went back just to confirm.

    Yup...No Revolution version. I think the controller is the cause of that. Maybe they can't make the game work with that remote.

    I hate to say it but it's going to be a rushed job. The only thing Treyarch will try to win us over is, with the graphics and the swining from SM2. I just hope to god I'm wrong this time. I sure was right about SM2 and USM.

    That's good news that it's already in developement. One of the biggest things that hurts most of Activision's movie tie-ins is that they have very short developement times, usually of six months or less. Spider-Man 3 will probably have been in developement for at least a year and a half by the time the movie comes out. I expect that the game will have very beatiful graphics. Hopefully Spidey will have a fully bump-mapped costume this time around, and the city will be rich with bump mapping as well. And maybe we'll have more, less-ugly looking pedestrians. I want to believe that I'm actually swinging around the real Manhattan!

    My guess as to why it won't be on Revolution is because Revo is so different that they'd pretty much have to make the game from scratch on it. Technology wise it's much more basic than PS3 and Xbox 360, and also there would be a lot of control problems to deal with in trying to adapt the gameplay to the Revo remote.

    i heard that the revo remote connects to a controller so they might still make one for the revolution

    That's just a concept for how Revo might be able to adapt to more game styles, but there's no plans for such a peripheral as of yet, from what I know. Gamecube games are going to be played by connecting a Gamecube controller directly to the system, so unless Nintendo decides there's an immediate need for a "normal controller" remote shell, it probably won't be out in time for them to use it for Spidey 3.

    Wait a sec. SM2 was in development a year before the movie came out. I remember reading that big ass preview in Game Informer.

    if you look in ign.com they have a picture of how the remote fits directly into the controller. i like the remote idea but i think controllers are way better

    That was a fan mock-up. Nintendo themselves have only said that a two-handed controller shell is a possibility.

    Are they not doing a PS2 version of the Spider-Man 3 game? I would hate to have to buy a new game console just to get to play the game when my PS2 is still working fine "For The Time Being".

    SONY is redisgining their controller anyways to perform like Revolutions, but as Nintentdo has said all along is that the controllers will come with an add on that you can plug onto the other end, and it can then be used just like a regular video game controller. I was really looking forward to using that controller with a Spider-Man game too.

    I don't doubt that eventually the game will be on Revolutions anyways, but it will probably come a year later. It really ticks me off the way Sony manages to dominate the market. Sony is a larger company, with more dollars to pour into it, so they develop a slightly less advanced system, and then use their money to make it so all the good games wont come out on other systems. That's their way of being the biggest the last two generations. That's exactly what it is. Why else do you think so many of these good games wont come out on other systems?
