Released earlier this year, God of War was the fastest- and best-selling game on PlayStation 4. It’s a record that the game held for around five months until Spider-Man came along, that it.
According to a report by USA Today, the game sold a record 3.3 million copies in three days since release, outperforming God of War by about 10%. As if holding one record is not enough, Spiderman also holds the record of Sony’s most pre-ordered game, at one million.
Sony did not provide any official numbers, but from the report, we know that the special edition PS4 Pro was included in the record-breaking number. While the number of sales the game made was impressive, it’s of little surprise, really.
It has a few solid ideas to run with, and developer Insomniac made sure that Spidey’s world was as interesting as he himself was. It was since Batman’s Arkham series that a superhero game was this good, and even longer since a Spider-Man game was this well received.
With the game still being pretty new, these numbers have nowhere to go but up.
