According to developer Crystal Dynamics, those who play Avengers on PS4 will also get a bunch of other benefits that is sure to leave a sour taste in the mouths of those playing on Xbox One and PC.
In a PlayStation blog post, outlining information on community challenges and cosmetics for Marvel’s Avengers, the developer revealed that, when it comes to cosmetics, PlayStation players will have 30-day exclusive access to a Legendary Outfit, Legendary Emote, Epic Takedown, and nameplate for each hero when they're released, including the six launch heroes.

That's not all. For each hero added to the game post-launch, Hawkeye included, all PS Plus members will receive a free bundle that contains a Rare Outfit, nameplate, and 100 Credits. In addition, PS Plus members will get a free Ms Marvel bundle at launch.
While the content of these bundles will eventually come to Xbox One and PC players, meaning they're not outright PlayStation exclusives, we suspect that - when they eventually do - they won't be free.
This content doesn't give PlayStation players a gameplay advantage but it does further suggest that Crystal Dynamics putting its weight behind Marvel's Avengers on PS4, more so than on the platforms.
