It was a given a game centered around Spider-Man would sell, but according to a report made by the video game sales tracking group NPD…the new game has more than exceeded expectations.
According to that report, the PS4-exclusive Spider-Man was not only the best-selling game of September but also game achieved the highest launch month dollar sales for any PlayStation exclusive in history. In addition, it was also the seventh largest launch ever achieved by any game on any PlayStation platform as well as having a launch month sales 37% higher than the combined launch month sales of all other Spider-Man games released since 1995. Finally, it also generated higher dollar sales in its launch than any other game this year and currently stands as the third best-selling game of 2018 after just one month.
Most likely we’ll have another game to follow Spider-Man, but for now the game is currently offering the first episode in a three-episode DLC that continues to story of the first game’s story (See a gameplay walkthrough released for it yesterday here). Without a doubt though, this version of the webslinger has just begun his journey. Stay tuned!
