The Amazing Spider-Man PS3 Box Art Reveals PS Move Support


Late Friday, Activision PR dropped a box art download into my inbox for The Amazing Spider-Man. I didn’t think much of it at the time because, well, it’s box art, and as much as I enjoy seeing what game covers look like, I had sorta checked out for the day and felt no urgency to download the goods right away.

But when I finally got around to popping open the box covers for the different versions–the game’s coming to 3DS, DS, Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360–I immediately noticed something different and exciting on the PS3 cover: That blue, half-circle emblem at the top-right corner indicating PlayStation Move compatibility!

As far as I know, Activision hasn’t officially announced such support nor does the press fact sheet included with the cover shots make any mention of how the game will use Move for motion control. The only detail to draw conclusions from is the imaging of two Move controllers and the lack of a Navigation controller graphic. That either means there will be some sort of Move two-player mode or, hopefully, a control scheme that allows for dual-fisting Move wands to web swing through the game’s free-roam Manhattan playground. That would be so sweet!

Worst case scenario, Beenox could simply be tacking on motion control Spidey mini-games. However, I tend to lean away from that idea since the Xbox 360 cover doesn’t show any support for Kinect.

We can only speculate for now, but we’ll be sure to update further as soon as Activision swings by with more details about The Amazing Spider-Man‘s PlayStation Move functionality. Stay tuned…
