Free Spider-Man!

There was some excitement earlier today that Marvel's Spider-Man would be released as part of Sony's PlayStation Plus lineup for June 2020. Alas, it's not true.

This is a known issue that has occurred in different parts of the world. About a month ago there was was a South African Reddit user's post showing Marvel's Spider-Man included in PlayStation Plus. It should then come as no surprise that if the issue hasn't yet been fixed it would happen again.

So nope, if you see this rumor floating around don't get your hopes up. It looks like the Store wanted to break some hearts today, which has already been accomplished

Of course, Marvel's Spider-Man is a title that's really, really good, so it makes sense that one of those unfortunate souls (like me) that haven't played Spidey's latest title would want to get it for free. Maybe this June we'll get a Marvel's Spider-Man 2 announcement instead? That would be a really nice consolation prize. We'll have to see.


Quick Take

Spider-Man is one of those games that has really tempted me to buy a PlayStation 4, specifically a PlayStation 4 Pro in order to get that web-slinging goodness. I've even watched some gameplay and spoiled myself on the story, which I almost never do. With the PlayStation 5 on the horizon and this latest web-slinging title undoubtedly going to be included in the PlayStation 5's backward compatibility, there's no reason to buy an ancient console if the PlayStation 5 is just around the corner. I've just got to wait another... 7 months or so? Ugh. Ghost of Tsumisha looks great too, which is making this wait even longer. 


What do you think of this news? Do you think it's not a glitch? Are you looking forward to Marvel's Spider-Man 2? Let us know in the comments!
