I thought it was already out, a Miiverse community for it arrived last week, and they don't usually do that before a game is released. Won't be picking it up though, the gameplay on the 360 version was good, but I really didn't like how they forced comic characters in to the movie universe. Make a decent comic based Spiderman game then I'll buy it.

Shattered Dimensions has been the only Spiderman i've really liked.

Wasn't keen on that, it was better than the one after though, End of Time, or was it Edge of Time, instantly forgetable. My favourite Spiderman games would be Ultimate Spiderman, and the two PSOne games.

I remember playing the PS1 spider-men games, but due to being young and loving wrestling and PES, they were put aside. Edge of Time is indeed forgettable, just undid alot of the good work SD had created.

The PSOne games were epic, loved Carnage Octopus.

Well nice to see that they are trying to release games on the wii U even if they are a rehash of older games on other consoles. As Wii U was slowly becoming like the Vita with very little coming out for it.

im just so glad they didn't use the "swinging onto the wii-u" line that everyone else online has used, i donno why it annoys me so much but it does.

So no actual NEW content then? And this is full price?

Games like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed III are getting big reductions (sub-£25 in many places) on the Wii U, so price issues are only for the greedy! ;)

I picked up Sonic Racing Transformed for the Wii U at £15. Same price as the store had the other 4 versions *except PSV which was full price for some bizarre reason. Most of the huge priced ones have went down in price. I noticed Ass Creed was £23 for the Wii U aswell as the PS3 and 360 the other day too. Only overpriced one now is Mass Effect 3. COD too I think. Although that's overpriced on all of them.

Patience is indeed a virtue - even on Wii U. Batman is £18 at some stores - might be temporary? Even ZombiU is dipping under £30!

The prices are bottoming out on those games because they aren't selling, that's hardly any reason to think full retail for something like this is good in any way. Also, Robichoico, I was shopping on Zavvi earlier and saw the Vita version at the same price as the rest (under 15 quid). It was a newer release than the home versions also... y'know... whatever the Vita actually has to do with anything here... again.

I've never EVER heard anyone (consumers, at least) complain about falling prices! Until now, you should win a prize..;)

Not something I really care about. But very little Comic Book games make me care. Stan Lee version sounds hilarious tho

I got this on the 360 the day it came out....its a good game tbh, the best Spiderman one yet. Probably the best super-hero games behind the Batman series. Its similar in a lot of aspects....basically copied what Batman did. Defo worth playing.
