This collection doesn't do anything for me. I don't see it as essential. I couldn't even be bothered to watch movies on my other consoles.

Three Spider-Man films are coming together in one physical 4K pack, designed to lure PlayStation 5 owners to the Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray format.

Read this before I scrolled any further and when I did I was disappointed that the 3 aren't the Raimi trilogy.

The biggest issue was that all the marketing was built around the tablet. It was very rare you saw the console or that it was prominent in shots. It didn't help that it looked and felt like some Fisher Price toy and that its games felt like Wii ports. I was impressed by Zombi, but there was a big feeling of "What now?" on day one.

Was also stung by the Vita at around the same time, which was the bigger disappointment. At least that had potential.

The Series X sales are down to scalpers using bots, most likely. 700 per cent rise isn't that big a jump when there are barely any One X consoles to buy either.

Vita was awesome! I remember playing Uncharted and Killzone thinking "woah how the hell does this run on a handheld?!"

Those movies have Dolby Vision, I hope it means that Dolby Vision will be supported for blu-ray movies at least.

I still find it somewhat ironic that xbox beat them to the punch on UHD movies.

They legit should have included this in the box. 4K UHD is stunning and it's the only way you are going to get the casual/streaming/I don't care about anything crowd to experience them and give it a chance.

I’m excited to have a 4k player finally and I love these movies so I can’t wait to watch them on my C9 in 4k. I just wish I could see Spiderverse in 3D again.

I remember wondering what the hell had gone wrong with Nintendo that meant Sony could just come along and make a fully fledged console you could walk around with. I'd show anyone who looked.

Luckily nobody listened to me, because in like six months it became an indie machine. One of my biggest gaming disappointments that just got worse every E3.

The Vita was a great machine - but also a perfect illustration that having great hardware doesn't necessarily mean your product will be successful. The PSP had a 6 year run where it was consistently selling about 10 million units a year - the Vita just about managed to hit 4 million in it's best year.

It still had some good games, but overall it seems like a huge missed opportunity.

I'd love an in-depth look at where it went wrong, with interviews with some of the people involved. I can't imagine it'll ever happen for a million different reasons, but there must be a great story behind it.

The efforts of people like Shahid Ahmad kept it alive far longer than it deserved to be honest.
