From Gamers Honest Truth

Yesterday, sources close to Activision brought to our attention The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Game has been delayed indefinitely on Xbox One. This news was further substantiated by the cancelling of my pre-order at local EB Games outlet. Today it appears that official websites have also been updated removing Xbox One from the list of available platforms for this title.

The Reason for the delay is not known at this time but could it have something to do with the fact that Sony is producing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie?

Not that I think anyone was particularly keen on another movie tie in game, but this seems pretty damn crazy. After all the game is due for release in what, 3-4 weeks? Word on the dev circuit seems to be that the XBO dev tools aren't quite in the same place as the PS4's (along with the architecture being a little more complicated) so one can only assume that this might be the result of that.

That demo was so deliciously Alpha, watching Chris drunkenly swear at the crashes on stage was amusing. The promise of this game is well... everything I ever wanted in a game, hopefully the absurd amount of money I put into backing it pays off.

I'm one of the few to physically break a 360 controller, seriously those things are robust. Slammed it down on my desk so hard the bottom busted out of it.

Will pick this one up. The game looked pretty good for a PS3 game but really you could still see the rough edges (the shadow resolution was down right poor). Will be nice to play though it at 60 frames 1080.

If I were forced to watch only one for the rest of my life it would be Anime. Anime is a medium, wrestling is a genre. In other words one provides access to multiple potential genre's while the other limits you to only watching one genre... forever.

But then you'd have to watch anime for the rest of your life.

You could also just as easily watch western style animation for the rest of you life, you'd still see some Sci-fi, some fantasy and various other things. With wrestling, well all you've got is wrestling. Anime just like any other medium has a turd to entertainment ratio of about 20/1, the problem is the weeaboo jerks who insist that 20 pounds of tripe is actually the best shit ever.

I feel like people who say "All you've got is wrestling" don't really understand the different levels of wrestling out there from the totally bizarre, goofy and fun Japanese/Indie levels of wrestling, to the total car wreck disaster pieces with no story or anything that are nothing better than backyard wrestling to the old school wrestling to the stuff like what the WWE puts out there that is a blend of comedy, and a parody of more real life issues etc. to Botchamania and just everything that's ever been botched. I get where you guys are trying to come from by saying that there are different types of genres within anime and the like, but the flippant dismissal that all wrestling is exactly the same is no better than people saying there's no variation in anime.

Wrestling totally does go some weird places, and there are of course multiple sources of wrestling. However what I'm getting at is that it is still all just the one genre. There are multiple forms of period drama, however would you watch that and only that forever instead of going with western television as a medium? My point is that the poll is flawed, one is a medium (animation), the other is a genre (a specific form of media inside a genre). You could just as easily create and then watch an animated wrestling show :)

Probably for the same reason the new Thief is handled by a new team and those guys were gone a long time ago. And Freedom Fighters was EA publisher, we might see it again as something bizarre.

A free to play iPhone/Facebook game probably.
