While there’s a lot of good buzz surrounding the Spider-Man title from Insomniac Games, the logo on Spider-Man’s costume has been met with mixed reception due to being much larger than it usually is and white instead of black. However, the developer noted that there’s absolutely a reason for it being a part of this take on the wall-crawler, and there’s more to it than just being part of the costume design.
More footage of the new Spider-Man title was shown at E3, featuring all kinds of kinetic action and fun, with impressions suggesting that this might be the best Spider-Man game yet. However, not everyone was pleased, but not for the reasons one would typically think – a fan took to Twitter to voice his grievances with the costume, and surprisingly enough he got a diplomatic reply from Insomniac.
It's explained in the game and has a purpose

Insomniac has previously mentioned that the departure from a more traditional take on the character’s design has a specific purpose, although that was before we got an in-depth look at gameplay. While they still have yet to show what the deal is with the addition to Spidey’s threads, that there’s an in-game explanation for them suggests that it could be part of a game mechanic they aren’t ready to showcase just yet.
Spider-Man will be released in 2018 exclusively for the PS4.
5 Marvel Video Games We Would Love To See Get Made
The world of video games is no stranger to superheroes. There have been superhero games almost as long as there have been video games. They have had varying levels of quality and recently DC has been extremely successful with the Batman Arkham series as well as Injustice, but Marvel hasn’t had a game recently that has reached that level of success. Last week, Square Enix announced a new Avengers game that has the potential to be an original and fascinating new game, but there are still several games we would love to see tackled and some characters we would love to control in a new interactive environment on the newest console generation. So without much delay, here are 5 video games we would love to see get made.
