The Amazing Spiderman Gets Digital Release along with Additional DLC

The Amazing Spiderman, the tie-in-game of the movie of the same name, wasn’t half bad. Read our review, we liked it, not perfect but good fun for those true believers out there.  Now the full Amazing Spiderman game is going to be made available for download; from today if you live in North American and the 26th of September if you live in Europe. Pricing is 4800MS points on XBLA, $59.99 on PSN and $49.99 on Steam. Why the Steam version is $10 cheaper than the PS3 version I have no clue, presumably because Activision thinks people won’t notice/mind.

In addition to the game being fully downloadable you can also purchase DLC…a term that is quickly becoming obsolete. Anyway for more monies you can download Rhino Challenge Pack, Oscorp Search & Destroy Pack, the all-new Lizard Rampage Pack and the Stan Lee Adventure Pack where you get to play as Stan Lee.
