Marvel’s Spider-Man is a critical and commercial success, but if you were holding out to web up a Spidey discount, today is your day. As part of Ebay’s ongoing pre-Black Friday sales, you can get the swinging superhero for $40–the lowest price we’ve seen from the coming sales season. [Update: The sale price has now gone up to $43 as of the time of writing, which is still a deep discount.]
Like many of Ebay’s sale items, this is likely limited by time and supply. You can pick it up at the sale price here. You may have to wait a bit for delivery, though; as of time of writing, delivery is estimated December 5-10. This joins Ebay’s line-up of “Better Than Black Friday” deals, which includes discounts on other recent games like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Black Ops 4.
Spider-Man sold record numbers for Sony, and its success helped Sony’s bottom line so much that the company as a whole raised its profit forecast. This Ebay deal is the only discount we’ve seen this season on the standalone game, though Sony is offering a big discount on the game bundled with a new PS4 console as well for Black Friday.
Insomniac and Sony just detailed the second DLC pack Turf Wars, part of the ongoing serialized story The City That Never Sleeps. It’s set to drop next week, on November 20, with new story missions, sidequests, and of course, Spidey suits.
“The feeling of embodying Spidey and using his abilities is astonishing, and the time spent on exploring its major characters help make its story feel heartfelt, despite superhero bombast,” critic Edmond Tran said in GameSpot’s Spider-Man review. “There have been open-world Spider-Man games before, but none so riveting and full of personality, none that explore and do justice to this many facets of the universe.”
