The Avengers aren’t the only game in town (though, it is easily the absolute best superhero movie hands-down) – we’ve also got the fantastic reboot of the Spider-Man franchise. With that, we also have the June 26th release of the new title from Activision /Beenox – The Amazing Spider-Man. Since it’s all the rage, let’s look at what you get for pre-ordering the game from various sources:

Take control of the massive, genetically engineered villain RHINO and rampage around Manhattan in an exclusive gameplay challenge of pure destruction!

Unlockable for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 system ONLY. While supplies last. Limited time only.
Pre-order Now from Amazon.com – Play as Stan Lee for the First Time Ever
All the rumors can officially be put to rest – for the first time ever, fans will be able to play…STAN…LEE as himself in The Amazing Spider-Man. Players will take on the role of Stan “The Man” Lee in his own special mission across Manhattan, borrowing abilities from his old pal Spider-Man as they help Stan collect pages of his latest script in a spectacular race around Manhattan. Stan’s mission is punctuated with his witty banter that fans have come to know and love, and a special surprise waits for them at the end of the mission – after all, it is Spider-Man’s 50th anniversary this year! Unlockable for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 system ONLY. While supplies last. Limited time only.
The game is being penned by Hollywood writer Seamus Kevin Fahey (episodes of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica), so you can expect that it should have a decent storyline beyond the events of the film. We’ll see next month when it hits PS3, 360, Wii, DS, and 3DS.
