Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered for PC Price Corrected in Several Countries - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 02 August 2022 / 2,205 Views

A post on Steam Community has revealed the price for Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered in several countries was incorrect and has since been fixed. The price has been corrected in Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Switzerland, and the UK.

The price correction is better for the consumers as it is now lower than it was before. The price in the UK was listed at £54.99 before the price change and is now available for £49.99, according to VideoGamesChronicle.

 If you pre-ordered the game in one of these countries you will need to cancel the pre-order and pre-order it again in order to get the lower price before August 12th and to receive the early unlock bonuses.

Pre-order bonuses for the game include the following content:

  • Early unlock for three Spider-Man suits
  • The tech-heavy Iron Spider Suit
  • The one-of-a-kind Spider-Punk Suit
  • The original Velocity Suit
  • An early unlock of the Spider-Drone combat gadget
  • 5 extra skill points to spend on Spidey upgrades

Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered will launch for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on August 12. It is available now for the PlayStation 5, while the original Marvel’s Spider-Man is available for the PlayStation 4.

That's like £5 less?, for a game that came out in what, 2018?., that's nearly a 4 yr old game at this point.

I know Days Gone went down in price nearly a year later, but I don't see the same happening with Spidey.

Nothing against your comment as it's fair to think that, but then I think about how Zelda Breath of the Wild came out 5 years ago at launch in 2017 and it's still full price lol

Not really, when I just said that days Gone went down in price a yr later.

What's got your nickers in a twist lately?. Was it that last article?, because I didn't even downvote you on any of that.

Also Don above said the price was still high, so does that mean he holds the same narrative?.

I don't read too much into what Classic says lol. I wouldn't take it personally. I rarely ever see comments that aren't hot takes along the lines of Sony good/Microsoft bad and you can't say anything else otherwise. I agree with you though. I love the game, but I'm gonna wait for a sale on PC. I picked up Horizon and Days Gone for $25 each this past Steam summer sale.

I'm not even taking it personally. I'm just wondering why he's going all antag mode on anyone questing the price tag of a nearly 4 yr old game.

I'm def gonna be waiting for a sale, I did the same with HZD+DG and managed to grab both for the price of around £50, which was what I was comfortable with in a 2 game deal.

And you know that is something that may make Sony care less about releasing games on PC right? If on console they launch at 70 USD and sell several millions in few months before cutting price, but on PC they release for 50USD with several improvements but take months for sales to pick and just start when they are under 30USD they are less likely to really care with porting instead of making it day one for 70.

Maybe if they released day and date that wouldnt be a problem but how can they expect people to pay near full price for a 4 year old port..

DonFerrari zero129 (on 03 August 2022)

And I'm quite sure that even if they done day and date the lion share of the sales would still be in PS, and quite possibly would even affect negatively the PS sales in long term (HW and SW) and that is why I say I don't think Sony will move to day and date anytime soon.

Indeed the bulk of sales would still be on console, but people wouldnt then be complaining about paying full price or near full price for a 4 year old port. i also dont think it would have that much impact on sales of the console as you say most of the sales would still be on console and just look at xbox selling better then ever while having all their games day and date.

If people don't complain, but sales remains the same the extra effort was for null =[

There will always be people complaining regardless. Personally if Nintendo doesn't need to drop their prices then I don't blame any other company if they choose not to. Why is Nintendo allowed and not Sony/MS? Another example is Mario Kart 8; the Switch version (released 2017) is a 3 year old port (Wii U 2014) that just included the DLC and was full price. Technically Mario Kart 8 is an 8 year old game that is still full price today as we speak. If anything, at least this Spiderman game isn't released at full price? I personally don't care about game prices but it's just funny how majority are perfectly fine with Nintendo keeping their games at full price while others aren't too pleased with the "slight" price drop for non-Nintendo games.

I'm very price sensitive, to the point I would rather the console was 1000 USD and games 20USD at launch than each game 60 =p . But yes, no point in complaining, since I like PS I just wait for price drops, if I liked Nintendo then I would need to accept I would buy less games or expend more money.

V-r0cK DonFerrari (on 03 August 2022)

Yea personally wouldn't mind a more expensive console if it means cheaper games. I know Nintendo wont drop their price in games so whether you buy it at launch or years down the road you know what you'll be paying. But for PS/MS games you can just patiently wait for the price to drop.

DonFerrari V-r0cK (on 03 August 2022)

PS I think I buy full price maybe once or twice a year if it is a strong year, otherwise it is all for like 25-50% of the launch price.

Only people ok with Nintendo keeping their games full price are Nin fans not everyone else. as anyone with any sense would tell you they should drop.

Me stating the fact that microsoft xbox brand people follows, quotes and retweet the most toxic fanboys and even flies them to their conferences triggered a lot of people, in a article where a previous xbox brand guy admitted they created fanboy wars. But yea, hot take :P

DonFerrari Chazore (on 02 August 2022)

Because for me it is "old" game, so yes 50USD at launch is expensive for me, but I understand Sony is considering a new release so went with this price and they have the experience with the previous titles so it may have worked fine for their pockets. And yes most likely within 6-12 months on PC it will drop price sensibly.

That's Nintendo tbf, they have always been of firm belief that slashing prices=devaluing games, despite other companies slashing prices of their own games and selling more copies, everyone else does it.

I would probably buy more Nintendo games if they lowered prices over time. But, since they don't, I pretty much only pick up Nintendo games that I feel like I must play. For Switch, the only first party games I've purchased are Mario Odyssey and Metroid (the recent one, can't remember the name), which I bought used just to have something new to play during a long trip.

I'd like to buy MK8D, but I can't justify the money for a game that I already played on WiiU several years ago. I played BotW on WiiU, otherwise I would have purchased that. But, that's almost nothing over the 5 years I've owned Switch.

All of the other Switch games I've played are third party games whose prices went down.

I myself would be buying more if they lowered their prices and improved their online services and emulator collection, heck I'd buy more Joycons if they weren't so close to £100.

Thing is, this gen just doesn't have what I want from Nintendo. The only two games I wanted this entire gen was Zelda and Animal Crossing, since Pokemon kicked me off it's own train, leaving the only alternative for me being a Pokemon-style game on Steam (TemTem).

I just wish there was more to their 1st party instead of it being the same old song and dance. The semi latest IP I enjoyed from them at the time was Splatoon, but online lag and cheaters soon threw me off that train as well.

My advice is if you want to play the game, but don't intend to collect them, buy second hand, play to finish and resell it. That way since the price of Nintendo games even second hand holds well quite well you could let's say rent the game for 5 or 10 bucks.

And that is why some say that pirating Nintendo games (and EA of course) is the only moral choice.

Still high, but it is considered as new release so ok I guess, at least they correct to a minor price instead of the opposite.

It definitely is too high. All previous Sony PC releases were at max $50 which included Horizon Zero Dawn that came with the Frozen Wilds expansion. It included all the PC features that Spider-Man is being released with too. So other than the mass appeal of Spider-Man being the main character, not sure why the $10 increase over previous releases that also had their own DLC included in the package. So I'm going to wait for a sale on this one. Definitely want to pick it up for sure!

This was corrected to 49 so it entered the max price of previous releases.
