7 things you need to know about Spider-Man for PlayStation 4

Channelling the best of the Batman Arkham games with a huge open world NY to web-sling around, Spider-Man promises one hell of a superhero adventure when it arrives sometime in 2018.

Like Batman in the Arkham games - which, yes, Spider-Man shamelessly and gloriously rips off to great success - this Spider-Man spends a lot of time crawling in the rafters waiting for choice moments to strike. But unlike those two, Sphero's Spider-Man toy focuses more on interacting with kids through actually speaking to them.

Rather, Sphero's Spider-Man is a little different, and more a robot that won't move by himself, but will communicate with you and let you take him on adventures.

Even though he's a superhero, this Spider-Man has a decidedly Funko-like figure (giant head, squat physique) and a rubberized body.

Since this new Spider-Man toy uses voice commands, it's understandable that parents might worry about privacy.

Emotive Eyes - Spidey's LCD eyes express his every thought and emotion. It couldn't be better timing then for Sphero to unveil what may be the most unique Spider-Man item for fans.

So I know people who are very passionate about Spider-Man, this is like the number one thing we get.

Aside from Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which comes out August 22, many of Sony's most ambitious and anticipated exclusive games don't have firm release dates, and it will likely be 2018 before we see several of them. The release of the toy also appears to have been timed to coincide with the release of Marvel Studios' "Spider-Man: Homecoming", which hits theaters on July 7. You can also ask him what his favorite color is or what he's up to, and his responses will be playful just like the on-screen Spider-Man. If that logo isn't glowing, the toy's microphone isn't active, providing further reassurance to parents that Sphero isn't secretly trying to harvest demographic info about their kids.

To turn this toy into a talking and listening companion, just click the spider on his chest.

If you weren't already hyped about the first Spidey game for four years, you really should be.
