Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has surprised the community with one of the star features related to the SSD memory, in this case the PS5. Insomniac Games has woven a system in which you can travel quickly by selecting any street you have previously discovered. You press a button on the map for a few seconds and almost instantly you are flying over the streets of New York.
Some users pointed out that this time, the confirmation of the fast-travel location was actually a covert fast-travel. However, this claim has been denied by one of the studio’s technology heavyweights. Mike Fitzgerald, director of technology at Insomniac Games, stated via his ResetEra profile that it was something he wanted to eliminate during the final stages of development, but was ultimately left in for usability reasons.
“That’s a hold-to-confirm prompt, not hiding a load. If anyone wants to check, they can look at how late it’s possible to cancel it out when they’re playing. Last month I brought up whether we should remove the hold-to-confirm, mostly to address that accusation we were seeing. But it was correctly pointed out to me that having a confirmation window was important for player usability, which at the end of the day is far more important than Internet cred points (even though we love our Internet cred points),” he commented.
Is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 coming to PS4?
No, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is not coming to PS4. The new installment in the Insomniac Games franchise will be released exclusively on PlayStation 5 on October 20, 2023. The reasons are obvious. The first is the chance to see features like the one mentioned in this article, something impossible to see on a mechanical storage unit like the PS4. Its base hardware dates back to 2013, its launch date, so the distance between the two consoles is what separates them: a full generation.
