IGN went live with an early E3 trailer for Beenox and Activision's upcoming The Amazing Spider-man, and it looks pretty amazing. We still have fond memories of slinging it Spidey-style through the streets of Manhattan in Spider-man 2, and this trailer features enough swinging action, and bad guy beatdowns to make us interested. Jon'll have a hands-on report from the show later this month.
Best cameo ever? Legendary comic designer Stan Lee will be a playable character in The Amazing Spider-Man; the movie tie-in set to hit this summer.
Details are scarce, and we don't know whether Lee will be an awesome new character or just a skin (fingers crossed for the former), but it's a fun bit of fan service nonetheless. You can see the interview with Addict Of Fiction here.
Here's another Spider-Man deal for you and I wish I had a bit of cash lying around to take advantage of this one! Shattered Dimensions lets you take control of four different versions of everybody's "Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man", which means that the game should last you a fair while. Unfortunately, it can get a little bit repetitive and the camera can be incredibly annoying at times. Play are parting with PS3 copies of the game for £12.99, which should save you about £2.50 on the next best offers out there.
This instalment of the Spider-Man series lets you mess around with time travel as you try to thwart the evil schemes of villains like Doctor Octopus, Shocker, and Rhino. There's plenty of web slinging to be had as you switch between the world of The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099. The merchants listed above are parting with Wii copies of the game for £17.99, which should make you a saving of just under £2 on the next best offers out there.
Prices are sky high (or out of stock) for Spider-Man: Edge Of Time on the 3DS... apart from Zavvi and big brother/tyrannical overlord The Hut. They're offering the cheapest price around by a fairly impressive margin, but listen closely, Peter. With great savings comes great mediocrity.
Spider-Man, Spider-Man. No, I'm not singing the classic theme tune - I'm alluding to the fact that there are two of them. Edge Of Time uses an absurd (even by comic book game tie-in standards) time-jumping storyline to introduce present day Spidey to his 2099 counterpart. Crisp banter and the way in which your actions can affect the timeline keep the experience fresh, but the raw mechanics are a little repetitive despite the two characters. Amazon will save you almost a fiver compared to, well, everyone else.
Be sure to select the right format before you buy.
When the likes of Anti-Venom, Dr. Octopus, and Shocker are just a few of the villains out to cause chaos and destruction in the Big Apple sometimes it takes not one but two Spider-Men to end their criminal goings on. You'll need to work fast to repair the timeline by stepping into the shoes of both The Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099. Game are parting with Xbox 360 and PS3 copies of the game for £24.99, which'll save you almost £5 on the 360 and £4 on the PS3. Thanks to PraxxtorCruel @ HUKD.

This latest Spider-Man game sees the Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099 swapping places as they battle the forces of evil and attempt to correct a disastrous timeline. As you're zipping about you'll come up against villains including Anti-Venom, Shocker, and Doctor Octopus. Whilst the game received mixed reviews, you'll probably love it if you're a Spider-Man fan. Simply Games are parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £29.85, which'll make you a saving of just over £5 on the next best offer coming in from Zavvi.
Announced - sort of - last week at New York ComicCon, we now have a trailer - albeit filmed off a low-res phone or camera - and some scant details on The Amazing Spider-Man game coming from Beenox. The trailer is pretty good actually, suggesting the game is further along in development than we expected, and showcases what appears to be a return to an open-ended - if not quite open-world - New York city, with plenty of web-slinging and even a few giant, multi-legged mechas thrown in for good measure.Hit the jump for more on the game
With a Men in Black 3 game announced earlier today, a fellow Sony Pictures outing has made the jump to home consoles, with Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man reboot announced by Activision over at New York ComicCon. We've not much else to go on, other than a poster outing the title, which features Andrew Garfield's web-slinger slinging himself towards us.
We do seemingly have a developer attached, however, with a Beenox Studios logo visible at the bottom of the poster. Beenox, you'll remember, were behind the solid Spidey outing, Shattered Dimensions, and the less solid-looking Edge of Time, which is very close to release. Third times the charm, some say. [IGN]
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions isn't a bad game by any means, it's just not as good as it could have been. There are four different versions of the heroic web slinger to take control of, which means that the game's a pretty decent length and there's a fair bit of variety to things too. However, despite all of its plus points including some great artwork, most fights end up with you mashing the buttons on your controller and after a while repetition does begin to sink in. Play are parting with copies of the game for £12.99 though, which is £5 cheaper than the next best offer coming in from HMV.
