Peter Parker and PlayStation get the W.
Marvel's Spider-Man has been the go-to game for PlayStation gamers this past month. As an Xbox owner, I'm a bit jealous. Marvel's Spider-Man is getting rave reviews from gamers and critics alike. The open-world title plays like a mix of the Batman Arkham series and Assasin's Creed, blending several narratives with epic fighting and an intricate story. Marvel's Spider-Man is so widely popular in fact, that it has shattered records in just a short time.
Marvel's Spider-Man dropped on September 7 and sold over 3.3 million copies in the first three days, making it PlayStation's fastest selling title. That amounts to about $198 million, which is $80 million more than what Spider-Man: Homecoming made in its first weekend in theaters. How does a video game outsell a Marvel movie on its opening weekend? By giving fans almost unlimited access to Spider-Man's powers, villains, and neighboorhood.
Prior to Marvel's Spider-Man, God of War held the record for the fastest selling title with over 3.1 million copies sold in its first three days earlier this Spring. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End held the record before that, with 2.7 million copies sold in the first week. With the Holiday season fast approaching, expect Marvel's Spider-Man to rake in more insane numbers.
