Activision just needs to be relieved of the Spider-Man license. They've been driving it downhill over the past few years, and the last good Spider-Man game to come out of them was Ultimate Spider-Man. After that, they went from mediocre to bad. It's time to pass the torch and see if another publisher can more effectively use the license. As for SM4's cancellation, it's a sad day. i was looking forward to a new entry into the series, but oh well. I'll remain optimistic about the reboot, but in the meantime, I'll cherish the blu-ray trilogy I have of the three movies that Sam Raimi nurtured into excellence (Sony's butchering of Venom in the third movie not withstanding; not Raimi's fault).

Sweet. Something else to play on my dust-collecting PSP.

@finaleve: It's not so much Nintendo's games, but their failure to help promote third-party hardcore games, which are usually the ones to do poorly. Madworld, Dead Space: Extinction, and The Conduit are all testament to that, as all have had lackluster sales compared to Nintendo's first party hardcore games. That, and all of the games you mentioned are deeply established franchises with lots of fan support, while two of the three I mentioned are new IPs and one (Dead Space) being a new entry into a series with only one game on two completely different platforms. It's a bad idea to make another Dead Space on a system that never got the original one. That was a bad call on EA's part to be honest, though. The other two just couldn't fins the right audience, nor the right backing from Nintendo to make them successful. It really all comes down to putting these games on the wrong platform, but some more promotion wouldn't have hurt. As for sales on this so-called abomination, it doesn't surprise me. This franchise died after Tony Hawk Underground 2, but they keep churning them out left and right, hoping to somehow revive it. This obviously isn't it. Just let it die already, Activision. It had its time to shine.

Do we really need another one? I mean, the first one sucked bad enough. I thought it was downright abysmal.

Boo hoo, you modded your console and now you can't play online anymore. Suck it up. You chose to break the law and the rules of Microsoft and now you pay for it. This is utterly hilarious.

I just know this is going to sell like crap. Activision is taking the whole music peripheral thing way too far, and hopefully this will enlighten them when it sells terribly. Stick to Guitar Hero, please, as much as you're beating that license to death. My money is going to Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack In Time and Tekken 6 this week; two games that are from proven franchises and have been hailed by critics so far. The best thing is, I get both for the same price as this. Besides, turntable music is not my thing, and I don't need anymore peripherals lying around my room. Two drum kits and three guitars are enough.

@sammoth: Blu-ray sales say otherwise. The sales of the format were doubled the first quarter of this year as opposed to last year. The movies do look THAT much better. I have a PS3 hooked to a 1080i Sony Bravia, and Blu-ray looks noticeably cleaner and more detailed than DVD. Whether you like it or not, Blu-ray is taking shape as we speak. As for this, Microsoft just conceded to Sony. Now, Sony will be making money off of every Blu-ray add-on they sell. The only problem here is that it's less likely people will buy a PS3 for Blu-ray if an add-on is available for their existing console.
