Game is looking interesting.

Really looking forward to this. Hope they don't fuck this up with this like they have with other spiderman games.

Seems cool. But, I am still very upset about this not being open-world.

Using Ultimate as the fourth universe seems like a cop out.

I want to play this. I'm not looking forward to the 1920's dimension though.

Kind of, but the Ultimate universe is quite different from all the others. 
 
Also...CARNAGE!!!!

GAHHH! We were THIS CLOSE to having a Zombie Spider-Man!

They went with Ultimate?! 
 
Fuck that.

I don't like how different the CG cutscenes look photo-realistic while the game is going for a cell-shaded look. It just doesn't seem to mesh well.

I'm pretty sure the visual style for each dimension is going to be different. I just wish this could come to PC :(

@Landon: This is a good point. 
 
There needs to be a Marvel Zombies game.

Ultimate?  Retarded.  I hate that universe and though it is different, it is just a new take.  Might as well say a 5th dimension is from the movies.  Another from the cartoons.  They are all different but Spider-man is essentially the same.

I saw this coming, but it's still disappointing.  I never did like Marvel's Ultimate universe.

So disappointed that it's Ultimate. I know you have to throw the symbiote in there, but Ultimate wasn't about that suit. Web of Spiderman on the other hand had Spidey in the black suit for most of the series. Seems like they went Ultimate just because it's the most popular series currently.

There isn't much difference between Amazing and Ultimate Spider-Man. Bit disappointing to see them choose to include it and even more disappointed to see the black suit being the main reason they did so.
 
That being said I am hoping they manage to clearly define both the Amazing & Ultimate dimensions and give both a unique feel beyond the fact that Peter wears a different suit in each universe. 
 
I was generally hoping for House of M Spider-Man myself. Would of been a nice take on the universe seeing Sentinels and mutant police dressing down humans etc.
 
I'm still more excited over Spider-Man 2099 being included in the game though. Fuck yeah, Miguel O'Hara!

Looks really good. This years Batman: AA???

They should have saved 2099 to announce last ... or, simply included the black suit skin for Amazing and not a whole other "dimension". I thought they'd have gone with cosmic or zombie Spider-Man. 
 
Playing as Noir and Miguel looks good so far though. So when my Spider-Man fanboy brother picks this game up, I'll play it if just for those.

I wish I could find the post months ago where I called this shit and everyone thought I was crazy : |.
 
Edit: Found it!

" 2099 has been more or less unofficially confirmed thanks to an accidentally leaked image of a preorder bonus (Cosmic Spidey outfit for all dimensions). That leaves the third one shown there which, due to the graphical styling, I am led to believe is Ultimate. It could be a coincidence that the overall shading and black outline style is so similar to the Ultimate game that came out a few years back, but it's a good guess. "

Am I only person that likes the Ultimate Spider-man series? It's a hell of a lot more reliable in terms of writing than Amazing has been these past few years.

Nosir. I love the Ultimate series. It's been way better than 616 in terms of writing the past few years, and it's much easier to pick up and read as there aren't a milliondy bajilliondy issues of it ranging all the way back to the 60s.

To each his own!  I'm not fond of the Marvel Ultimate universe myself but i can't condem anyone who claims to like it. 
 
I believe everyone's main beef here is the decision to go with Ultimate purely for the black suit which was in Web of Shadows.  As long as the gameplay is good and the story is interesting i can let go however.
