Sorry for any confusion and sorry for not jumping into any other threads about this topic. Spider-Man Symbiote will be available through consoles if you purchase all Founder's packs but will be later available as a costume.

So it's a time-exclusive via the Founder's packs but will be available later to everyone in some fashion.

It does feel like a slap in the face @Casper88
They are breaking their promise of exclusivity.

i hope it's the real Symbiote. Not because I am a fan or will get it. Just because I know someone will use the term "slap in the face" to describe the effect on founders pack folks. And i haven't heard that term in some time.

As an Ultimate Founder this is a slap in the face.

How?

Founders got it because they were founders on PC - and guess what, it's NOT for sale on the PC!

People need to get it through their minds that MHO is essentially a brand new game, NOT a simple port from PC to Console.

Think of it this way: If MHO were to have had a totally different name that didn't share Marvel Heroes - like maybe just Marvel OMEGA - would people be asking to transfer over, or to complain there is a costume being sold on it?

NO - because they would see it's a different game. Which it is, from the UI to new itemization, no Pets, etc, etc ad nauseum..

Omg i agree that00% and to make the PC players stop complaining it would have been better if it just had a different name so people could go its a marvel game for console lol butlets face it they would probably just say but its marvel so it belongs to pc

You obviously didn't see the quote in my post and you are totally right.

It's a new game with a new name and new forum and new port and new team and new characters and new powers and new content. I don't know how I though this was just a adjusted port to console of the same game. I mean how hard is it to confuse Marvel Heroes with Marvel Heroes Omega? Silly right? It's like people confusing my Ford Fusion SE with just a Ford Fusion. They are completely different!

That's the information I was given to by one of the producers. I might involve something else within the rating system, I'm not 100% aware, sorry. I'll try to provide more details as I have them.

Please if you let as know. I would love to know when we can play it. Playstation italian blog doesn't reply....

But we have to remember how a lot of them think, it was on pc first so it belongs to them

Did you watch the same clip i did of them going through the raft. Same enemies. Same dialog "No wonder fury speaks highly of you" Same moves. Same cut scenes. Same end villain. Calling it a new game requires some mental gymnastics if you ask me. Its the PC game with some console customization for controls at best. Diablo 3 is still Diablo 3, despite having some console exclusive features. Same is true here. And if you direct yourself to the Doomsaw quote of the guy above you. Theres no designation about on this platform or within x years. He says never and he says why.

Whether it was a stupid promise to make in the first place especially with such iconic costumes in a game that's monetized around people buying cool costumes is another argument. But you'd have a hard time convincing a jury it wasn't the same game were the game on trial for murder.

And PC players got an Ultimate Founders pack with loads of characters for this costume while console players have to pay more for founders packs and also get less heroes (if they want the costume).

Or they can wait until they put it in the store for everyone on console?

This, 100%. I'm an Ultimate Founder and this is totally fine. They have broken no promise here. These aren't for sale on the PC game nor are they able to transfer to it.

New founders for new platform, and guess what, I'll be getting it again!

Thanks a lot! Also looking forward to costume details!

But there must be a mistake right?

The X-Men pack picture shows 5 characters. Yet the pack has 6 now with Iceman added.

The Avengers pack (for the same price) shows also 5 characters and has only 5 listed by you now. Also replacing Iron Man with Hawkeye. Is that for real? No Iron Man in the Avengers pack?

Thanks for this! Do you have any information about a release in Switzerland? Will it be coming at all? I don't mind waiting but if I could know ahead if I should just make an US account to give it a try it would save me some time waiting :#

And skipped Iron Man as an Avenger? Of all the characters. Please @KomoriMan say this is a mistake.

Gotta be kidding that Iron Man isn't in the avenger pack. What is that?

So I can play with Iron Fist if I spend 200$ for a lesser version of a game where I already own all the heroes?

C'mon.

No seriously, I know they're "time-exclusive" so I may be able to play them in the future, but how long will we have to wait?

Furthermore, if I bought a one month PS+ so I can have War Machine, will I still be able to play with him when I stop being a PS+ member?
