Spider-Man Game Sales

It turns out that Marvel’s Spider-Man is currently a sought after slice of video game goodness. It was the most wanted game in the United Kingdom, outselling God of War after its launch. PlayStation 4 owners in Japan are also keen on it, judging from the latest sales data from the region. What’s more, impressions and feedback from both the critics and the public are largely positive. For more on that, check out our full review of the Marvel’s Spider-Man right here.

It’s interesting to note that Marvel’s Spider-Man sold over 125,000 copies. In contrast, PES 2019 was last week’s top seller when it moved over 73,000 copies. It is now in second place. Conan Exiles, was in first with over 32,000 copies the week of August 29, 2018.
