VIDEO GAMES: Cover Art For THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Revealed

There's still a few months to go until The Amazing Spider-Man hits stands, but we now have a first look at the cover for the Playstation 3 version of the game.

Follow Josh:
By Josh Wilding - 3/21/2012
Go beyond the movie to experience what it’s like to BE Spider-Man like never before. Set shortly after the events of Columbia Pictures’ new film, The Amazing Spider-Man throws New York City’s brand new hero back into free-roaming, web-slinging action, as he protects the Big Apple from a deluge of unimaginable threats. Experience the new Web Rush mechanic as Spidey twists his way through the NYC skyline with unprecedented speed and grace. The game’s original story also explores beautiful indoor environments, as you’ll encounter everything from skirmishes with everyday street thugs to pulse-pounding confrontations with Spider-Man’s most lethal foes.




Many thanks to Twitter's @Marvel_Spider for the heads up.

RELEASE DATE: June 26th, 2012.

Hmm, seems pretty cool to me. Just give me the game already so I can play the d*** thing! :)

Stay EPIC, my friends!

It's very similar to the first Spider-Man film poster, but cool.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/21/2012, 9:07 AM
D14 - Yeah, now that you mention it. It does.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/21/2012, 9:08 AM
Nomis - LoL! True, true. :D
bbarber2323 - 3/21/2012, 9:12 AM
When does this come out??
superotherside - 3/21/2012, 9:13 AM
That isn't a bad cover actually. :) Still wish they hadn't put blue on the gloves... but oh well...
Jolt17 - 3/21/2012, 9:13 AM
Hmm, nice.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 3/21/2012, 9:17 AM
Does anybody actually use the Playstation move? I have a PS3 and I have never, ever felt the urge to buy one. Nor have I a kinect for 360. It seems like they are just fads that are dying off.

That costume looks like a Texture-map nightmare. They tried too hard to divert from the Raimi suit that was simply near perfect!

@RidiculousFanBoyDemands I bought a Move for my Playstation, played on it for like an hour, and I've regretted it ever since

i always buy the spiderman movie video games and I will be picking this one up to.
hoodedjester - 3/21/2012, 9:34 AM
Spiderman 1 poster anyone?
JDUKE25 - 3/21/2012, 9:37 AM
Looks good, as well as the game.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 3/21/2012, 9:42 AM
Just from what we've seen recently with the trailers, still pics, and etc., I think that this is going to be another great Spidey. I'm hoping that they'll at least give us free-roam similar to either Spider-Man 2 the video game or Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. They had some wicked free-roams in those game. :)

I remember at one point, it was explained that it was a type of static electricity, not the spines that come out of his appendages (in the Raimi films), that enables him to stick to things. Which became a problem when he fought Electro... Anyway, maybe that'll explain the sneaker scenario.
thewolfx - 3/21/2012, 9:45 AM
looks really photoshoped

and that posed is ripped from raimis poster



god that suit sucks
MB007 - 3/21/2012, 10:02 AM
[frick]ING AWESOME!!!
This is gonna be THE VERY BEST Playstation Move game ever!!!! :-D

(Already pre-orderd it when it was announced Stan The Man was in it!! :-D)
Asterisk - 3/21/2012, 10:02 AM
I actually have no problem with this suit. I think it looks pretty good.
thewolfx - 3/21/2012, 10:04 AM
@mb007

sense when is this for move ...smh
MB007 - 3/21/2012, 10:06 AM
@thewolfx

Don't know, but i've been looking for a reason not to sell my two Move controllers, en i guess i just found one! :-)
TrueRedBlue - 3/21/2012, 10:14 AM
Looks great to me!
webslinger2099 - 3/21/2012, 10:24 AM
amazing
Ashes2Phoenix - 3/21/2012, 10:32 AM
This suit is looking better each time I see it. I would even go as far as to say, I prefer it to the Raimi version. It might have only been five years and I know the Raimi costume is much more in line with tradition but this one feels more modern and stylised. It looks like a costume a teenage kid would design. The gloves look like a pair of mountain biking gloves I own. You can see he has used resources, that were available to him, rather than it being a costume which looks like it has been in a the tailor's shop for weeks, possibly months. In short I'm loving it.
Darth258 - 3/21/2012, 10:32 AM
I always laugh my a$$ off when i hear people "The pose looks like that" "The pose is ripped from that"...

It's the frigging Spider-Man, he always had that pose when swinging, from every possible angle lol.


Oh and people arguing about Raimi's Spidey pose? Really?

^^ Date:2001 rofl Spider-Man Movie:2002
Darth258 - 3/21/2012, 10:33 AM
@sKeemAn: Yeah, not much different xD

jessepostal - 3/21/2012, 10:43 AM
House of the dead and resident evil five were both bad ass with ps move. The shoot was pretty sweet too
GrayMatter - 3/21/2012, 11:10 AM
This seems like it might actually be fun to play using Move......

Too bad nobody actually owns Move
Mrcool210 - 3/21/2012, 12:23 PM
wait a minute, does it say playstation move compatible? i didnt know that, i thought they said it wasnt, so thisthing is fake
TheAmazingSpiderMan47 - 3/21/2012, 12:25 PM
im the [frick] damn spiderman!
ibravosp5 - 3/21/2012, 1:26 PM
Looks good for the cover art. And I see it says play station move compatible. So on Xbox it's kinect compatible. Hopefully it's not though..... But it cold offer something fun and new. But still the covers pretty good.
SpiderSurfer - 3/21/2012, 1:45 PM
listen up i own a ps move and i love it more games would benefit from it if only it were added as an optional feature i Will admit some of the games designed just for move sucked balls just like spidey's new suit but alot of games intergrated move very well and on the right games its much more of an emersive experience for example killzone 3 or resistance 3 you play those games in 3D with surround sound headset and ps move sharpshooter and your in the freaking game and your hooked like crack i dare any gamer to prove me wrong .... ps move is just an added feature that is showing us how much more imersive games can be as a matter of fact ill buy any bodies Extra move controls they dont want ... this game is gonna be epic the new suit sucks but spidey is the man so hell make it work
Boyle360 - 3/21/2012, 1:50 PM
Prefer it to the older one.
SpiderSurfer - 3/21/2012, 2:06 PM

Mrcool210 - 3/21/2012, 2:54 PM
it says only on playstation, THATS A LIE
CaptainAmerica31 - 3/21/2012, 3:55 PM
Why does it say only on play station?
ibravosp5 - 3/21/2012, 4:11 PM
@Mrcool210 it's probably saying the move is. Otherwise I'll go nuts!
acxel - 3/21/2012, 4:23 PM
Only on PS3... Did Sony really just [frick] themselves like that? We'll see how the movie turns out first before I buy.
laughterman26 - 3/21/2012, 7:16 PM
