Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 PlayStation 4

For as long as we've known about Marvel's Spider-Man, one of the biggest conversations online was all about which suits would end up in the game. The PS4 exclusive wound up with a pretty large selection of costumes for Spidey to try on, covering outfits from the comics, the movies, and even some all-new creations. However, by far the most requested suit from fans is the costume from the Spider-Man films directed by Sam Raimi.

Even now, months after the game's launch - and days away from the release of the third DLC chapter, Silver Lining - people are badgering the studio about this specific suit. In a recent conversation between the developer and some fans on Twitter, one person brought up the costume, saying: "Come on, Insomniac. You said you were listening." The response from the developer is surprisingly candid.

Essentially, Insomniac Games is saying that, while it always takes on board feedback and requests from fans, it isn't necessarily going to act on all of it. Sounds like a perfectly reasonable approach, especially for a game as popular as Marvel's Spider-Man. Leaving aside the Raimi suit that everyone seems to want, catering for everyone's requests on a game like this would probably be impossible.

It's refreshing to see a developer give its players such a straight response, and while it's caused a bit of a stir, it's a fair answer. Insomniac can't and won't deliver on everything, and that's that. What do you think of this exchange? Is Insomniac right to push back against fans like this, or should it swallow its pride and give the people what they want? Swing by the comments below and let us know.
