[Update: The price has gone back up to $60. It might be worth checking the link again to see if it dips back down.] Daily Steals is a retailer that sells a range of products both on its own site and through Facebook. As we saw during the lead-up to Black Friday, the Facebook side of the operation occasionally offers ridiculously good deals. The only problem? Stock is limited, so the best deals can sell out in seconds. That said, right now Daily Steals is selling Spider-Man for PS4 for just $30. Our advice? If you want it, grab it quickly.
There are two caveats lurking behind this deal. One is that you need a Facebook account to get it. The other is that the game comes with the Latin American packaging, which the retailer says differs from the US version only in the language of the text on the box. PS4 games are region free, so it will play just fine on US consoles, and it still has English language dialog. But if having Spanish or Portuguese on the box bothers you, you’ll want to wait for a different deal.
As for the game itself, it’s fantastic. Critic Edmond Tran awarded it 9/10 in GameSpot’s Spider-Man review, writing, «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. 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. Insomniac has created a superior Spider-Man experience that leaves a lasting impression, one that has you longing for just one more swing around New York City, even after the credits roll.»
Spider-Man’s DLC expansions are still rolling out. Two episodes are available now, with the third and final one due by the end of the year.
