Insomniac’s take on Spider-Man has been a huge success for Marvel and Sony. The web-slinging adventure sold over 3.3 million copies in its first three days, making it the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive to date, even beating out God of War. According to the latest numbers from the NPD Group, it now has another record under its belt after three months.
According to NPD’s Mat Piscatella, Spider-Man is now the fastest-selling superhero game ever for the United States. Spider-Man‘s outstanding quality allowed it to be a record-breaker despite having its audience limited to just PlayStation 4 owners. This opens the door to more big-budget superhero games going forward, and executives from Marvel and Insomniac see it as the “Iron Man” of Marvel video games, kicking off a whole new era.
