PS4's Spider-Man Can Be Completed In 20 Hours, Devs Confirms On Twitter
This was in response to Twitter user @sebi0315, who asked James Stevenson, Insomniac Games' community director, "How long is the whole game or are u not allowed to give an answer?"
our average play tester took around 20 hours on default difficulty, but some spent a lot longer if they did a ton of side quests/activities

Almost immediately, Stevenson replied: "Our average play tester took around 20 hours on default difficulty." He also noted that "some spent a lot longer if they did a ton of side quests/activities."
To put his answer into perspective, God of War also has an estimated play through time of about 20 hours, but it's full completionist game length sits at around 60 hours [via GameRevolution] - so don't worry, there'll be tons to do once the campaign is over.
The 20 hour mark is set for gamers who enjoy completing the main story and nothing more. Like most current games: side quests, collectables, and general exploring play a major part in keeping players entertained, so expect something similar here. Got to get that platinum trophy!
Obviously, some Spider fans weren't happy with Stevenson's announcement, although it wasn't the case for all of his followers:
So I order a ps4 for the game just to play it for 20 hours

Wow. I was right. Sorry I'm not paying for a game that can be completed in a weekend. No matter how good the web-slinging looks.

What do you think about this news? Was this the game length you was expecting? Is it way too short? Let us know what you think.
Spider-Man will launch on 7 September solely for PS4 players, and you can even buy a red, limited edition console to celebrate the release.
