Not a Simple Graphical Upgrade
One of the hypest news with PlayStation 5 release titles was that not only were we getting Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales but if we got the Ultimate Edition, we will also be getting Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. Unfortunately, for the few who are interested enough for the remastered, but not interested enough for Miles Morales (which seems really weird), there’s currently no plans to have a standalone version of the remaster.
Insomniac studios are considering their option though, such as a purchasable upgrade to those that own the original. They aren’t planning to do a free upgrade since it’s not a simple graphical change. They have confirmed major overhaul of the whole game adding new suits, trophies, and more. Also, it wasn’t a recent title that was meant for PS5, so it doesn’t really make sense.
I personally don’t see Insomniac make the remaster standalone, at least for a little while. The remaster is one of the greatest rewards for a collector’s edition I’ve ever seen and it is a powerful tool for marketing it.
Additionally, I really don’t get the fans who like the game enough to buy a remaster, but won’t buy the new game. Maybe they are short on cash for an Ultimate Edition? But if they are running out of money, I don’t understand why they are buying a PlayStation 5 on release. Can someone explain this to me?
