Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 PS4 vs PS5 – Which One Should You Buy

Find out which console you should buy the next Marvel’s Spider-Man game on. Will it be PS4 or PS5?

Marvel’s Spider-Man, the PS4 game from Insomniac, was one of the nicest surprises of the current console generation.

It was incredibly good to see our favourite neighbourhood Spider-Man doing his thing on a modern console, and it’ll be even better to see him again in the inevitable sequel.

Indeed, even though Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has not yet been announced, it seems safe to expect that a Spider-Man PS5 game will be revealed at some point – especially when you consider the fact that Sony has acquired Insomniac.

That leaves a question though, should you get Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS4 or PS5?

Should you get Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 on PS4 or PS5?

If it comes to both consoles, then we’re going to have to make a choice. Of course, it will mostly depend on which one you still have, but there are arguments in favour of both.

The main argument for getting it on PS4 instead of PS5 is money. Ultimately, if you don’t have a PS5, then buying a new game on PS5 also means buying a PS5.

If you’ve already got a PS5 though, then the game is guaranteed to be substantially better on it. The SSD will make the game smoother, the graphics are sure to be better, and the whole experience is just going to be far more enjoyable thanks to all the new tech.


Of course, all of this assumes that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 even comes to both consoles.

Will Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 come to PS4?

So, as far as we know, and as reported on by Gfinity, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is apparently going to release in holiday 2021. While that means it’ll definitely be on PS5, it doesn’t mean that it will be on PS4.


In fact, assuming the PS5 does release this year, it would put it almost a year into the next-gen cycle.

While it’s not impossible that the game will release on PS4, it is somewhat unlikely as Sony has already made clear that they want to focus on moving onto the next-gen.
