I dunno...Spider-Man's speed and agility changed things up enough that it feels different enough to me.

Not that I'm complaining, I just think it is pretty much the exact same game with almost exactly the same combat style.
It's kinda like saying that Mad Max is the same game, because it shared the same sort of combat system as the Arkham games.

A shame that the black costume didn't make the cut. That seems weird.
There's a reason for that, I think.

4K discs outsold standard BRD 4-to-1 during it's first year on the market. It made a big enough impact out of the gate that Microsoft added a 4k drive to the One S.
I think this says way more that people aren't buying Discs and the hard core moved on to 4K, because there are a dedicated videophiles out there, you know the ones who bought Laser Disc. LOL. And MS was hoping to pull a rabbit out of their hat with the 4K player, but that hasn't really turned out for them.

Major Dan is right on this one. Physical disc media is just for the older people who care about quality, while everyone else has moved onto streaming for the quantity and instant access. There is a reason why films come out a month before physical releases.

MS going with a UHD Blu-ray player in their products, starting with the Xbox One S, was really their attempt at getting everyone who was interested in high-end audio and video to buy their system. But it did not work, as the PS4 still continued to outsell it on a month to month basis. Sony knew that UHD Blu-rays (as a partner of developing the hardware and software standards, and being a film studio) was not a factor this generation, so they decided to save on manufacturing costs and continue to just use a standard Blu-ray optical pickup for the PS4 Pro. Even their consumer electronics division was a year behind the competition in terms of releasing a stand-alone UHD Blu-ray player.
