The PlayStation 5 reveal came out with a bang. It showed Spider-Man fans a reason to get excited, Miles Morales.
If you missed the reveal trailer check it out below.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this game, and especially with it being billed as a PlayStation 5 exclusive, which gives me a reason to be even more excited to see it running with the new PlayStation 5 hardware. After the massive success of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, I was ready to see Miles taking over the mantel as Spider-Man. However, later on, a rumor was that it was an expansion and enhancement to the previously released Spider-Man game in 2018. This was a big bummer for me. It also damped my desire for a new console purchase.
Today Insomniac Games give us a little more clarification.

As stated in the tweet above Insomniac is saying this will be a standalone game. While this news is excited I already feel a little down with how this information was communicated to the gaming community during the PlayStation 5 reveal. It’s been a roller coaster of emotions for Spider-Man fans, but it is good to finally get a word of clarification from the studio. What are you’re thoughts? Will you be picking up a PlayStation 5?
