Marvel’s Spider-Man is Now UK’s Fastest Selling Game This Year

Insomniac Games’ rendition of Spider-Man in video game form has only been out for three days but in the UK, it’s already broken many a record over the weekend in terms of sales. According to UKIE/GfK Chart-Track, on top of becoming the fastest-selling title of the year thus far as a whole in the country — even beating out previous record-holder, 2017’s Call of Duty: WW2, when looking solely at the PS4 platform — the game has even gone as far as to sell through nearly double that of fellow PS4 exclusive God of War’s sales during the same period of three days upon release, as well as Far Cry 5 — previously the fastest-selling game this year across all platforms — which itself released across multiple platforms.

And this, it should be noted, only factors in physical/retail copies with digital sales being excluded from UKIE’s statistics. As a result, the game is also the fastest-selling of any Spider-Man title as well as any Marvel-licensed title, though it falls short of being the fastest-selling for any superhero-based game, with Batman: Arkham Knight only just clinging onto that coveted honor, though it should be noted that Rocksteady’s final entry in the Arkham series did release across multiple platforms.
