There is no shortage of suits in Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4. There’s plenty – more than plenty, even – but some people will always want more. Many true believers have been asking Insomniac, since before the game even released, if the Sam Raimi suit from the original Spider-Man movies would be making an appearance. It makes sense, it’s a nice suit and it’s the first time we saw Spidey on the big screen. Happy memories and all that jazz.
Well Insomniac has had enough. A recent question on the subject from a fan has prompted Insomniac Games to dish out a pretty sassy reply over on Twitter. When a fan tweeted an image of Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man along with the words “come on, Insomniac. You said you were listening”, the developer didn’t take too kindly. You can see the exchange down below.
Listening doesn’t mean we always will do what people tell us to. We hear you. Hearing doesn’t mean we always act or follow.

To me that reads like a grumpy grumperson has had enough of hearing about the Sam Raimi-era suit. Fair enough, really; the studio is badgered every single day on Twitter and it must be annoying. So, take this as the official confirmation that you won’t be playing in the classic movie costume. You’ll just have to dress up yourself.
