According to USA Today, which allegedly have some intel from Sony, the God of War selling record went down, as the newly released Spider-Man PS4 game hit the mark of 3.3 million copies sold in just three days.
Spider-Man PS4 sold 3.3 million copies in just three days, surpassing God of War
After it sold about 3.1 million copies in 3 days after its launch, God of War had become the bestselling title among all the Sony Interactive Entertainment games.
That record, however, is now beaten as the recently released Spider-Man title for PlayStation 4 surpassed any expectations and sold 3.3 million copies in just three days.
A figure that could be even higher since the presented stats don’t include those sales made via the PS4 Pro Amazing Red bundle.
Spider-Man also set the record for the highest number of pre-orders and surpassed other famous superhero-themed
Another record set by Spider-Man is that of the highest number of pre-orders, as more than one million copies of the new Insomniac Games title had already been pre-ordered worldwide way before the release date.
Also, among the superhero-themed games, this new Spider-Man PS4 title surpassed all the games of the Batman Arkham franchise, in special the Batman: Arkham City title, which sold only 2 million copies in the first week after launch.
Batman: Arkham Knight had totaled about 5 million copies in its first four months, a sum that Spider-Man should surpass without any difficulty.
Additionally, Spider-Man made quite a buzz in the United Kingdom where it made the best video game launch of 2018, overcoming that of Far Cry 5. The most important stats would come from the United States, but only when the NDP will launch its next report in about a month.
Meanwhile, for the Spider-Man PS4 fans, there is some excellent news as three additional chapters would come soon.
