The lights are on
Web-slingers feared they might not get to play Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the Xbox One today when it released for a slew of other systems, but the game is indeed ready to go on the platform.
The game is currently available for purchase at the Xbox marketplace, and we've downloaded and played it.
Last week there was consternation when the Xbox One version's artwork was removed from the game's website. At the time Activision and developer Beenox said they were working to get the title out in time for the system, but that its release was not guaranteed.
Our Take:It's not often that a publisher has these kinds of last-minute problems with a multi-platform release, but thankfully the midnight oil was burned on the Xbox One's behalf. Hopefully the game doesn't suffer with bugs because of it.
