Apparently Spider-Man sales on the Playstation 4 have broken 3.3 million units in its first three days of sale, which multiplied by $59.99 comes up to around $198 million, $81 million more than what Spider-Man: Homecoming did in its own opening weekend. The game, developed by Insomniac, has definitely proven itself a work of art.
Spider-Man was the first Spider-Man game of its kind in several years, ever since the last Spider-Man game, a licensed game of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, came out. The game received mixed reviews like many licensed games, and so it’s nice to have a Spider-Man game that can not only get rave reviews but also be able to sell extremely well.
Spider-Man sales are actually so good that it managed to take the title from God of War, Sony’s other high-profile release that had previously been dominating sales charts after having not had a new game put out for it since God of War: Ascension back in 2013. That game, with its new setting, new adventure, and above all a Kratos that could actually be considered heroic, sold extremely well on release.
Spider-Man, however, being a superhero property that got a good deal of promotion and gameplay across multiple E3s, has surpassed it, and provide at least some solace for those who were heartbroken about Peter Parker’s fate in The Avengers: Infinity War.
While Thanos doesn’t make his way into the game, various other Marvel heroes like Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, and Iron Man are already hinted at in the game, since you can go to various locations including the Wakandan Embassy, Doctor Strange’s building, and Matt Murdock’s office.
You can add to the huge number of Spider-Man sales if you own a Playstation 4, since it’s exclusive to the Playstation 4. And, with such a high critic rating and so many sales, it’s bound to be worth the time you invest in it.
