The Amazing Spider-Man Unamazingly Late On PC

Yeah, yeah, Jim posted about this yesterday too. But he forgot to be rude to Activision. And what are you going to do about it? Fight us? You wouldn't stand a chance.

So apparently Activision doesn't want to sell any copies of The Amazing Spider-Man on PC. With the film coming out next Tuesday, it's a timely release for the console versions this Friday. But in six weeks time when the game finally deigns to appear on Steam, we'll all have moved on.

No reason is given, but as Eurogamer spotted, the game's website sells this announcement as something worth of exclamation.

"ASM SWINGS TO STEAM IN AUGUST!"

it excitedly declares.

We know our PC fans have been eagerly awaiting news. As of today, we can announce that The Amazing Spider-Man game will be releasing for PC on August 10th, 2012.

Lots of fans have asked if ASM would be coming to Steam, and we're very happy to confirm that it will be!

Additionally, ASM on PC will be integrated with Steam Achievements.

Steam Achievements you say! Well fuck me! It's worth getting the game a month and a half later, after the film's in limbo between cinema and DVD!

So many who would have preferred to play the promising-looking game on PC will likely opt for the inferior graphics, framerate and fidelity of the console version, and Activision will throw up their arms and declare the PC sales so very poor. And we'll stare.
