Activision Explains Leaks


Posted June 17, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

Activision responded to yesterday's massive gaming leak with a simple, sensible, "we were just spitballing." Well, more like this:

"We regularly test all kinds of game concepts and pricing strategies using market research," Activision told Eurogamer. "All of which are options whose outcomes are yet to be determined."

Okay, we get it. Still, it was fun to be let into the inner world of videogame planning. We were quite psyched to read all the iterations of Spider-Man that might result in the kind of game Spidey deserves. Check out the 14 leaked Spider-man concepts under the cut, then pick your favorite.
