Spider-Man 3 spins a web, misses and falls into delaysville

For those of you living under a gigantic rock that prevents any sort of common knowledge from seeping in, the film Spider-Man 3 is coming out this friday. With it, there was supposed to be some kind of video game entertainment dealie coming out as well on practically every system ever made. Don't get us wrong -- the Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PC and DS will still get their Spidey on, but not the PS3 in the UK.

Activision UK lifted up that rock and shouted into the ears of Pro-G: "We're like, totally delaying Spider-Man 3 until, like, May 18 here in the UK!" Believe it or not, Activision UK's PR department is indeed run by Californian Valley Girls. Anyway, there was no reason for the delay... at least none given. Why would the game be delayed in the UK but not anywhere else? Don't point fingers at Sony -- this is Activision's doing. We know you might think Sony just loves screwing the UK, but this time... Activision is giving you something to cry about. Don't worry -- two weeks isn't that long.

[Thanks, Colin! Er, other Colin? Colin McP!]

1. WTF?? Sony, this is your movie, go after Activison. It's your movie license, don't let them walk all over you.

2. ...This article could be a little clearer, especially after the misleading headline - the game IS coming out on time in NA, right?

3. I heard that it's because they had a misprint in the tittle.. "araña-hombre" or something.. but you didn't hear that from me!

4. And again, Europe is not just UK -_- and the game is delayed on all PAL territories.

5. @ Stef Geiger -- as far as I could tell from the article, the game is only delayed in the UK, but as Khaliel said, it's delayed in all PAL territories. So the US release should still be on time.

@ Khaliel -- my apologies for the brain fart. I'll fix 'er up right now... er, couldn't find where I called the Europe "UK". I was just referring to the UK, not all of Europe. If you give me the quote that's wrong, I'll fix it right up =)

6. Actually Nick, in hindsight, your post was clear enough - I was simply so overwhelmed by grief at the thought of another PS3 title being delayed that skipped over the last paragraph, which actually makes it pretty clear.

My bad. Thanks for the response though. Makes the whole journalism thing feel kinda interactive.

7. @ Stef Geiger -- no problem! Since we've got Colin on board, I can relax a little more and respond a bit more readily to the questions put in the comments section. We've got two more people on the way to help, so if we get 24-hour postings going on, we all should have a ton of time to answer questions.

In fact, we're going to start doing a mailbag sort of thing every weekend. No promises on a start date, but if you guys do have any interesting questions, feel free to send them in. =)

Take it easy!

8. Man, I was worried for a second. I already had to switch up my plans when the psp version was delayed; if the PS3 version (in the US) got delayed too, then that would've . . . well, sucked.

9. @Nick: Sounds very cool. Sigh, too bad none of those newly hired people are me. Heh.

14. Four-week delay in Australia and for those who are tempted to buy the PS2 version to play on the PS3. Don't! It won't load past the familiarization level.
