Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has finally swung its way onto the PlayStation 5, but one fan put the webhead on an Xbox Series X, literally.
Check out Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 below.
The reception to Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 won’t be helping either, as both critics and fans are loving it so far, some of which have been blown away by how gloriously fast the game’s traversal is, straight-up refusing to use fast travel just so they swing and glide around more.
However, one Xbox fan decided to take the opportunity to do something remarkable and made a gorgeous Spider-Man-themed Xbox Series X, despite the new game being incompatible with the console.
The fan shared their beautiful creation on Reddit, with a post titled: “Spider-Man 2 ready.” The design is basically a normal Xbox Series X but painted red in some areas, and with a white Spider-Man logo. The finished product makes the black parts of the console look like the Venom symbiote, slowly taking over the red parts of Spidey’s costume. It truly is a work of art.
Fans were both confused and alarmed at the heretical sight that lay before them, with many joking that Sony would arrive any minute to destroy the Xbox that shouldn’t exist.
“Sony wants to know your location," said one, while another added, “My lord is that legal?" One jokey comment read, “Ah yes, BoxStation 5X.”
Maybe in another timeline where Xbox got to Insomniac Games before PlayStation did, this is exactly what we would have gotten to celebrate the new game’s release.
In other news, fans are already wondering what’ll come next for Insomniac’s Marvel game universe. The Wolverine game is the developer’s next big release, though it’s apparently been toying with the idea of more Spider-Man spinoffs, as well as plans for a third game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is available now, exclusively for PlayStation 5.
