(The fact that Homecoming will be distributed by Sony Pictures, not Disney, may have something to do with the toy's lack of movie ties.) Still, Wilson said this Spider-Man comes with more than "100 comic books worth of content" and will also offer "tons of Easter Eggs". A proper demonstration kicked off, showcasing this Spider-Man's spectacular skill-set as he battled his way through the goons of the future Mister Negative.
Sphero's Spider-Man in some ways feels similar to this, but in a much larger capacity, with a microphone that can listen to your phrases and respond, and with an app that you can take on various adventures.

Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 will release in 2018. You know, standard friendly neighborhood hero stuff. You get the same two-word choice system for your super power.
The interactive device looks different from anything else Sphero has created, in that it's stationary and made of a rubber material - all the company's other toys are designed to move.
There's no camera, but Spider-Man can use its infrared motion sensor to detect movement, In sentry mode, which you activate by double-pressing the logo button and saying "Activate guard mode", Spider-Man says things like, "Freeze, knucklehead, you're not allowed in here". For any Spider-Man fan, this is not only an interactive companion or toy, but it's a unique collectible and the ultimate alarm clock.
If you weren't already hyped about the first Spidey game for four years, you really should be.
