With more than 3.3 million copies sold in its first three days of sale, Insomniac Games’ PlayStation 4 exclusive open-world action game is now the fastest-selling first-party PS4 game to date, Sony announced on Twitter today.The previous holder of that title was God of War, which launched in April and racked up 3.1 million copies sold through downloaded copies and physical versions sold through to customers.The game’s sales success is not terribly surprising. Spider-Man launched September 7 to a wave of critical adulation, and UK retail numbers quickly pegged it as the fastest selling game of 2018 so far, and the fastest-selling Marvel-branded game in history. It also topped the GSD charts for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Australia. In its second week, it held off challenges from new releases Shadow of the Tomb Raider and NBA 2K19 to retain the top spot on the UK retail charts.Celebrating employer excellence in the video games industry8th July 2021Submit your company Sign up for The Daily Update and get the best of GamesIndustry.biz in your inbox.
