It’s the news that every entitled piece of shit on Twitter has been waiting for. Every anonymous Twitter account that threatened to kill Insomniac developers have been clamouring for seemingly no other reason than it wasn’t there. Hooray, you win.
Insomniac have today thrown an update up for their rather fantastic PS4 exclusive Spider-Man and it includes the Spidey suit from Sam Raimi’s era of Spider-Man movies, which Insomniac are sharing for free as a ‘Christmas gift’. Of course, there’s a corner of the internet (pricks, essentially) who believe that this has been seen as a victorious result after months of threatening murder and stomping their feet like children. They’ve got what they want and they haven’t even had to pay for it, even if this was probably months in the planning and development. Because gamers. Ugh.
Insomniac posted the news on their official Twitter account earlier today.
We have a special holiday gift for #SpiderManPS4 players. Today’s game update will include a highly requested suit. Hint: It’s webbed and it’s FREE for owners of Marvel’s Spider-Man! pic.twitter.com/6DLTxPFSaE

I mean, great. The people get what they want, but as our good friend Chris Scullion says;
Annoyingly, many will think this is a response to all the pricks whining last week about the Raimi suit not being in the game. Even though this took time to make and will have been planned for a while, the message will be ‘gamers’ won and this pressure should happen more often https://t.co/toLd19VdDW
