Marvel’s Spider-Man is still the hottest selling game in the UK right now, and has been crowned as the fastest selling PlayStation first-party title of all time and has shattered records within Marvel and PlayStation games as a whole. And from internet critics all over the interwebs.

Bill Rosemann, Creative Director at Marvel Games, recently responded to a tweet from GameSpot that discussed why Spider-Man selling well was an important factor. Rosemann built upon the thought of the game being “the Iron Man of Marvel video games.” This quite originally was said by Bryan Inthihar, Creative Director over at Insomniac Games. The quote was said during an interview with Kinda Funny Games:

The point is that now this quote really solidifies a new beginning of Marvel console games, a for how Iron Man was one of the first comic book movies that unleashed the Marvel universe to the general population. This will likely be the start of a plethora of quality, first-party, titles based on comic book superheroes from the Marvel brand. But what hero is up next Who knows? It’s all pure speculation at this point. But with its success so far, the fans have spoken and more Marvel games are likely on the way. Fans are stoked about this tweet.

Marvel’s Spider-Man is available exclusively for the PS4. Just about 3.4M players have already experienced the game. This speaks “volumes” already. (Pun not intended.)

Spider-Man was released last Friday, but the game already is shattering records in 2018- given that the holiday season is still yet to come. In the United Kingdom, the game licensed by Marvel is the fastest-selling game so far in all of 2018.

GameIndustry.biz reports that Marvel’s Spider-Man surpassed many other titles in sales, including Far Cry 5, which is the fastest-selling game in the UK on the scale of the entire year. Not to mention Far Cry 5 came out on multiple platforms including the PC, Xbox One, and PS4. And this game is just a PS4-only title. This was the same case with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, which is another Marvel-branded title.

Spider-Man also sold twice the amount of units that God of War sold during launch back a few months ago. Given that the game continues to sell, it could be the best-selling PS4 game of 2018- provided that it beats out other popular titles coming out soon for the holiday season like Fallout 76, just to name one.

The previous game to shatter records was Call of Duty: WWII back in 2017. Spider-Man beat it out in terms of sales volume over time. However, these records only count physical game purchases at UK retailers. Digital sales are a whole other story, which would easily inflate the number to even greater extents.

Regardless, Marvel’s Spider-Man is currently the hottest selling game- if anyone asks.
