Buy The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at GameStop and you could get tickets to the movie

GameStop partners with Activision and Sony Pictures to offer anyone who buys the game on April 29 two tickets to see the movie while supplies last.

by

GameStop today announced a partnership with Activision Publishing and Sony Pictures Entertainment for a special The Amazing Spider-Man 2 event to be held April 29 at all of its U.S. stores.

For one day only, shoppers who purchase The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will receive two movie tickets to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which hits theaters on May 2. Tickets are said to be in limited supply and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

GameStop shoppers will also receive the exclusive "Web Threads Suit Pack," which contains four Spider-Man suits, if they buy the game on April 29. In addition, GameStop customers who attend the Amazing Spider-Man 2 event will get to see exclusive footage from the upcoming film and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video game while shopping in store.

Finally, GameStop PowerUp Rewards Pro members ($15/year) that trade-in items towards the purchase of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will receive an extra 40 percent in-store credit. All other shoppers will receive a 30 percent bonus credit.

A sequel to the 2012 game The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is Spider-Man's first adventure on next-generation consoles. However, its forthcoming arrival is not without some controversy, as the release date for the Xbox One version lies in limbo.

I do want to see the new Spiderman movie, but I've never been interested in the games and a game costs much more than two tickets.

I think I just buy Spider-Man from the Raimi trilogy. I pay $10 and get $10 off for a ticket.

Or I can just pay $5 bucks to go see Amazing Spider-Man 2 vs paying $10 bucks and I save 5 dollars more.

Try paying $12-15 for a ticket in Chicago. You ain't going get a ticket for no $5 kid.
