Marvel’s Spider-Man Smashes UK Sales Records

The PlayStation 4 exclusive, Marvel’s Spider-Man, has sold extremely well since the title launched on September 7th. Insominac’s debut game has smashed various sales records in the UK.

It’s the UK’s fastest selling game of the year so far in 2018. This is a credit to the game considering the quality of titles that have released this year. Spider-Man has also beaten other PS4 exclusives, such as God of War, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Detroit: Become Human.

According to the UK company Chart-Track’s latest data, Marvel’s Spider-Man is the fastest selling individual format release since Call of Duty: WWII on the PS4 last November. It has also topped Lego Marvel Super Heroes to become the fastest selling Marvel game ever by a big margin.

Here’s Chart-Track’s full top ten for the week ending September 8th, 2018:

  1. Marvel’s Spider-Man
  2. Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
  3. Grand Theft Auto V
  4. F1 2018
  5. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  6. PES 2019
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Destiny 2: Forsaken
  9. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  10. Lego The Incredibles

As far as superhero games go, it hasn’t quite dethroned Batman: Arkham Knight as the fastest selling superhero title in the UK on the current generation of consoles. It’s worth noting that Arkham Knight released on several platforms in 2015, when digital sales weren’t as high as they are now, and the UK charts only include physical units not digital sales.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is a PlayStation 4 exclusive developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony. The title features a unique story that isn’t tied to any existing comic book, film or television series.
