Looks like Marvel is putting the pressure on Activision to actually make these MUA ports worth a damn!

there's no need to thank them, the game should have shipped in a working condition especially at that price and being digital only

This is great! Like I said in another thread, I'll pick up the bundle once the patch is out.

Kudos to Marvel for whipping Activision into shape.

That said, this may not bode well for the chances of MUA3 happening.

Wow, Activision sure is a garbage company if they could have done the DLC but just didn't feel like it.

Hope this comes to PS4.

Is it possible for all of the platform-specific characters to be brought together?

i wonder if MAU1 framerate can get bumped up too, that's actually a bigger deal to me.

It honestly seems like Activision tried to sneak out a shitty port. When word got out the head of Marvel Games new push was very quick to say he heard people's complaints and he was on it. Fast forward 8 hours or so and we get this announcement. So yea it basically seems like Activision is getting the smack down from Marvel over their abuse of the license.

Is this only for PC?
Nope all platforms.

Exactly, especially when it costs you $40 a pop for a version of a game that's essentially worse than the Xbox/PS2 versions at launch.

It should be expected.

I wouldn't trust Capcom with that deal.

Or maybe they just threw money at them. :p

Heck, there's still the mess in the movies around the X-Men and F4. And apparently Fox will try F4... again.

Activision has been known to release this rushed/bad products, and none of the IP holders cared. Some even ended making sequels with them.

If it was as easy as just smacking them, but money seems to always speak faster.

I mean, the damage is already done. I bought it on my 360 for 10 dollars less.

However, i never would have bought it, if it wasn't for the ports. So uh, guess it evens out.

From reading the Marvel push in gaming, they really should have seen the state it was in before release. Atleast they know now and are trying to get it fixed.

Frame rate is unlocked. Leading to a very inconsistent experience. Since it fluxuates from 30 into the high 40's and even up to 60 at some point. It would have been better to just lock it at 30.
Ugh. They need to fix that, too. I don't understand why performance is so bad for these 10 year old games.

When's the Marvel Game Universe?

Marvel calling Activision: what's going on Dave?

Dave: what do you mean.....?

Marvel: MUA...fix it, nau! Or I will kill you(in Arnold voice)

Dave: ok...

(Assuming there's a Dave in Activision that fixes shit)

Well, I think I'm willing to give them a second shot once we see the results. Still probably going to wait on a sale though, and the hope of some performance improvements for MUA1 wouldn't hurt.

I also will get it once it's properly fixed. I've never played any of them before.

Marvel Games is trying to turn the Marvel video game narrative around. With Spider-Man PS4 getting so much hype, they need nothing to stand in their way.

Good on them for getting this going quickly though. I wanna buy this bundle. I'll wait till things settle down.

What are the terms for Activision's contract with Marvel content anyway? Hopefully Insomniac's Spider-Man is just the first in a future of Marvel publishing their own games.

Marvel Games isn't publishing the Spider-Man game, they're just giving Insomniac the license to make the game. Sony's handling publishing duties for said Spider-Man game.

I'll definitely buy MUA1 when the DLC is added. Might even get the bundle, I never bought MUA2's DLC either.

(These are called selling points, Acti)

Its funny we havent heard anything from Activision, they would have just ignored the issues, glad Marvel got on it fast
They rarely comment on things, outside the generic "we're looking on it".

Even Tony Hawk got updated without much fanfare around it. :p

I love how Marvel is trying to associate their entire brand with quality throughout their entire catalogue. It's great to see them caring a lot.

Now get on mvc4!

I'll probably but the PS4 port for the first game after all then.

It should have launched with the DLC and more fixes, and it's unacceptable that they didn't, especially for what they were charging, but at least they're going to make good on the port.

Soooo, if they didn't do anything with the game going forward, we definitely wouldn't be in the right to then complain, right?

It's great from Marvel to actually involve themselves in Activision's mess.
That makes me believe even more their recent proclamations that they want to become a serious player in console and PC gaming.

What good news. Good on Marvel stepping in to sort out this mess. That's another sale for the games from me :D.
