The Amazing Spider-Man 2 takes place outside the events of the 2nd film in a unique story where Spider-Man discovers a larger threat to NYC that has turned the underworld upside down. Villains from the film and classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man’s reckoning.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is also available for Xbox 360.

  • evilfangs .

    So this didn’t end up getting delayed then? When did the PS3 / PS4 one release? Whats wrong about this one then compared to PS4 version, 720p 30fps?

    • Death Dealer

      Nope, both 1080p 30fps. But the game is not so good IMHO and suffers from tearing. I’m laughing hard at the Sony fanboys claiming this was another Xbox One hardware problem that led to cancellation and was supposedly confirmed by so called GameStop employees on GAF and other sites. Lying filth they are, they prove it over and over again.

      • evilfangs .

        If it isn’t hardware problems why is the game screen tearing at 1080p 30fps? Does the PS4 suffer the same problems? Are the developers just being lazy and not optimizing the game for X1 correctly?

        • Nick Peck

          Yes, the ps4 version is having some of the same issues from what I have read/seen. When you see issues like this, there is no one to blame but the devs, so expect some patches to roll out shortly.

          • StormRaging

            Wonder if the X1 will get patches since it wasn’t supposed to be here today!

          • Nick Peck

            ya I don’t know but I would hope so for everyone getting it. Honestly, has anyone played it much? Still kinda wondering how it is since I haven’t paid much attention to it. For games like this I’d rather “hear” from fellow gamers than from large media sites.

          • StormRaging

            I’ve been watching it on X1 on Twitch. Looks uninspired! The city streets are empty, lots of pop in. Web slinging may be tied to the building but the webs seem to go all over the place. Quite a bit of clipping also.

          • evilfangs .

            This whole game has something very strange about it. Xbox one delays and problems and now PS4 problems.

          • Nick Peck

            Agreed. To be honest with you I didn’t care for the first ASM Movie let alone the sequel or this game. As we all know, tie in games pretty much suck so I haven’t paid any real attention to this game. I have just assumed it will suck lol, but I could be wrong (but from what I have seen…). I’ll wait to some people post feedback.

        • Death Dealer

          Tearing is present on both platforms apparently. Don’t know which is worse from the 2 as I haven’t played it on the PS4 yet.

          • StormRaging

            no reason for tearing when it’s a locked framerate :(

          • Nick Peck

            Supposedly locked framerate haha. As we are seeing w/ this new gen there are no solid framerates on either system it seems. infamous second son has a lot of issues in this dept as well, even when you lock it at 30fps.

          • StormRaging

            Really? I didn’t know that Second Son wasn’t locked at 30 and was having framerate issues

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Second son screen tearing?! really? I beat the game and didn’t notice any. I was actually amazed at just how gorgeous and smooth it ran. given, the city is sort of bare but as for the framerate, textures and resolution I thought it was gorgeous

          • StormRaging

            From watching Twitch streams the city is beyond bare for Spider Man. Tons of draw in for cars that are just parked on the streets also.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            I only encountered this problem once on second son. I think it was at the third mission I can’t remember.

          • Mr&Mrs Ninja

            Same problems with both systems. On PS4 for some reason I keep falling through the ground when I land on the streets. My friends bought on the X1 and I just see tearing.

          • CountryBoy74

            Ps4 has Vsync 100% on. Sadly, Xbox One does not and tears like crazy….pisses me off.

      • StormRaging

        Does the game have horrible tearing on the PS4 also?

      • Michael Košut

        Sony fanboys are laughable, they’re make my day.

      • Joshua st.

        Yea this “fur low” guy I’m sure you’ve seen the name is a serious gambit he had the nerve to CALL me a robot. I don’t think he even has a XB1 but yet he is always on major Nelson….. despicable.

      • Joshua st.

        Oh Also please all of you copy this I’ve tried and tried to explain this. We the fans shot ourselves in the foot when we made them reverse the always online policy that was implemented to make sure developers would us “the power of the cloud” this is a FACT regardless of what the fanboys say. For the record I own both so I don’t want to hear it.

          10 hidden powers of the Xbox One

          19 November 2013 By Guy Cocker


          The Xbox One is about to be launched, but what will it be able to do in five years’ time?
          We’ve been waiting so long it seems difficult to believe, but the next generation of gaming kicks off in just a couple of days, as the Xbox One launches around the world. The tech that Microsoft has packed into the machine is cutting edge right now, but it’s got to last years – perhaps even a decade.

          So how has Microsoft future proofed its brand new console? Read on, and we’ll show you how the company can unlock its potential one, two, and even five years down the line.

          1. An Indie Game Turnaround

          Indie game makers are flocking to the Sony PlayStation 4 right now, but in time, the Xbox One will become a haven for offbeat and low budget titles too. Microsoft recently announced that game development toolset Unity will be free on Xbox One for developers who are signed up to ID@Xbox, its independent developer publisher program. Unity is the development engine behind some of the biggest mobile games out there, including Dead Trigger 2, as well as PC indie hits like Kerbal Space Program.

          Microsoft has lost ground with indie developers to Sony, which has been courting the most prominent small game makers for PS4 and PS Vita, but by by making it easy for indie developers to port their existing Unity games over to Xbox One, Microsoft has just gained some valuable ground in bringing smaller, cheaper and more experimental titles to its new console.

          2. Emotional Gaming

          Xbox One’s Kinect sensor is advanced enough to sense your feelings through what Microsoft calls the “emotion platform”. This technology is embedded into Kinect, so the system knows when you’re happy, sad, or just bored and looking at something else — and Microsoft’s hardly used it yet. While slightly spooky and perhaps a little invasive, this data could prove really useful for game makers, as it’s effectively telling them how well their game is working on you, in real-time.

          It’s not difficult to imagine the impact this tech could have in certain games: imagine the next series of Telltale’s The Walking Dead being able to tell which characters you care most about, and then being able to focus on those characters, or even worse, kill them off. It’s a feature that will no doubt be of interest to film and TV makers too, as they can gather real data not just on how many people are actually watching their content, but if it’s having the desired emotional impact. Add in the heart rate monitor, which can tell if you’re excited by an increased heart rate, and you’re looking at the future of adaptive entertainment.

          3. SmartGlass Everywhere

          SmartGlass, which hooks your tablet or phone up to your Xbox experience, has been slow to catch on this generation. But with next-gen, SmartGlass could soon prove a major feature. Every big release on next-gen from EA, such as Battlefield 4 and Need for Speed Rivals, and Ubisoft, such as The Division, makes use of the second screen tech.

          At launch, Dead Rising 3 uses SmartGlass in a really clever way: when people in the game want to call you, it’s done through your actual real-world smartphone. In future, expect SmartGlass to work remotely, so that you can interact with your game when you’re out and about, or even play a version of it on your tablet, if your connection is good enough.

          4. Up in the Clouds

          Microsoft has made bold claims about its cloud infrastructure: it has built 300,000 servers to upgrade Xbox Live for the next gen, which it says is the equivalent of “three Xbox Ones in the cloud for every Xbox One in the living room”. At launch, first-party developer Turn 10 has been able to offset some of the data processing for Forza 5’s physics engine to these servers, which it says allows the box in your living room to focus on running the game at 1080p at 60 frames per second.

          As broadband connections become faster, expect the cloud to offer similar processing benefits for lighting and special effects, as well as more players, and data that can be used to create new Achievements that change over time.

    So does that mean they aren’t pulling the Xbox One digital version? Beebox doesn’t even know why it’s out today since it’s supposed to be delayed indefinitely.

    • Carnage Rules

      No, it was supposed to be delayed until July not indefinitely

      • StormRaging

        The general consensus that I read was that July 1 is just a placeholder date.

        • Death Dealer

          It was. It’s probably MS’ QC that held the release back and now the game is running fine, but still has quite a bit of tearing.

          • StormRaging

            From the streams I’ve been watching, the game isn’t really “fine” :)

          • Death Dealer

            There’s probably another patch coming soon, hence the release now. There are no showstopper bugs anymore AFAIK and fine is not “great” either IMHO.

  • WWFMankind

    …2nd link takes you to Trials Fusion.

  • Nathaniel Aune

    I’m happy that the Xbox One version is available to download! Thanks for the update, Major Nelson!

  • jose

    hey everyone i notice price drop on the following games.

    killer is dead from $40 to $20
    fuse from $40 to $20
    bureau x-com from $30 to $20

  • dibils

    …. i thought it was delayed indefinitely on X1!

    • StormRaging

      It was! That is why everyone is surprised

    • ElektroDragon

      Money talks I guess.

      • donnyskillz

        Let you tell it

  • thekeelo_g

    Does the XB1 digital version come with the extra suits we’d have gotten with a physical pre-order?

    It also would have been nice for some update other than, “lol, it’s actually available,” as some of us have to plan our game purchases in advance. I had it preordered for my XB1, but cancelled it and spent the money elsewhere, only to find out it actually is available.

    • evilfangs .

      I don’t think Microsoft or the developers know what’s going on. It wasn’t supposed to be release according to the developers.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        You’re right, it wasn’t. I wish they would just give us the real story.

    • Lance Malcomson

      No you don’t get the suits. It’s only a matter of time before they get released for DLC…

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    Is this game also out hard copy for the xbox one right now?

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    This is so confusing. I wish Activision and Microsoft would just tell us the truth instead of having us sitting here in the dark like retards. it’s still officially delayed.. can’t get it in stores yet somehow it leaks onto the xbox marketplace.


      It’s only released on XBL games on demand. Hard copy will not release till July.

      • michael mashburn

        not true

        • WARLORD

          ?? Look up the game. From Gamestop to Amazon they all have it for pre-order July 1. The only place the game is available for Xbox one is on XBL……

          • michael mashburn

            true but not for 360 u can get it in store

          • WARLORD

            I was talking Xbox one.

  • Mr&Mrs Ninja

    @ least it’s out. Rather hard copy but if there’s a demo for it somewhere, i’ll probably get it.

    • Jerome Noxby

      no demo

      • Mr&Mrs Ninja


  • Dan Page

    Sadly not on the UK market place :(

    • StormRaging

      If it comes out, it will probably be Friday for the UK.

  • Filipe Araújo

    This game is 60 bucks? I really gonna wait for some sales to get it.

  • roozbeh, again

    What a chaotic launch, someone is gonna get fired for this.

  • Digiadam

    Wow its expensive!!!!!!! No way….not for that price!!!! 65.00cdn! WOW!

  • Matt Wolf

    The Xbox One version is $10 more expensive. You’re basically paying that much for some extra pixels.

    • Xhawk27

      Blame Activision.

      • Colin McGregor

        shush, don’t use common sense here.

  • deadbox102

    This will probably be the DoW soon.

        Deal of the week I’m guessing.

    • Professor Oak

      The new correct term is DwG, Deals with Gold

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    anyone played it yet? i am going to wait till it comes in the mail. i hate demos of physical games. i had to add that because i really want demos for arcade on x1.

    • Lance Malcomson

      I bought it and it’s pretty fun! The combat and web slinging have been improved from the last game.

  • Bennijin

    Oh good, it made it to Xbox One after all. It’s great to know I can not buy it there too.

  • Winter soldier

    I really want to get it how do I buy it off the US account?

  • David K

    Games with Gold? Bueller? BUELLER?

    • Paris Vaunter

      The rumor I heard is The Orange Box & Dust: Elysian Tale

      • Professor Oak

        Both were on sale way too recently, I highly doubt it, there is usually at least a 3-4 month barrier

        • SectorStar

          Dust was confirmed via gaming sites a few days ago actually. And it wouldn’t be the first time they put something on games with gold just weeks after it was on sale <_<

          • Professor Oak

            Weeks no, month’s yes. And it hasn’t been confirmed till it is OFFICIALLY announced, no proof till then. Tell me one game that was on gwg just weeks on dotw

          • Peter

            weeks months dude it went on sale already trust me those games are both fair game by now. been on sale and literally selling for peanuts

          • Professor Oak

            No they aren’t, especially Orange box, which was on sale in March.

      • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

        That’s disappointing if true.

  • GmailIsDown

    get it before it gets pulled

    • Peter

      what pulled? u serious it got officially announced its being blasted on the front page of the xbl marketplace. and by MN. It wasn’t leaked by accident

  • Mitch Hull

    I wish they wouldn’t have been so shady with releasing this because I had already bought it for PS4 off of Amazon by the time they announced it was on Xbox One. Which is probably exactly what Sony wanted to happen. Haha

  • Nick King

    Looks shocking like 99% of games based on a movie.

  • Peter

    Weird because the limited time challenge ends in june or july if i recall. Want a hard copy but if the challenge ends before its released it would suck.

    Also this game honestly does not look worth the 60 bucks as it looks like something from x360 Will i get it sure eventually as the SM games are usually decent. But this doesn’t look that much different from the previous SM games.

  • Lance Malcomson

    I bought and downloaded it on Xbox One. If you liked the first game then you will like this one too. I don’t notice any screen tearing or framerate dips. The combat and web slinging have been improved too.

    • CountryBoy74

      Xbox One version has crazy Screen Tearing

      • Lance Malcomson

        LOL, obviously you haven’t played it then. Cause I have not seen it yet.

  • CountryBoy74

    Will the Screen Tearing be resolved on the Xbox One Version?
