'Marvel's Spider-Man' Reaches Nine Million Copies Sold On PlayStation 4

Ever since its release last year, we knew that Insomniac Games' Marvel's Spider-Man game for PlayStation 4 would be a colossal hit. It's easily the best video game based on the wall-crawler to date; and its open world gives you tons to do- and that's before you get to the DLC that was released in the subsequent months.

So it should be no surprise, then, that it's become one of the biggest sellers- if not the biggest- on the platform.


In a press release sent earlier today, Sony confirmed that Spider-Man has set a huge sales record, becoming the fastest-selling exclusive title for the platform in history. "Marvel's Spider-Man, launched in September 2018, has cumulatively sold through more than 9 million copies worldwide as of November 25, 2018," the company noted. And who knows, with holiday sales, it may have already cleared ten million copies.

James Stevenson, community manager for Insomniac Games, took to Twitter to confirm the sell-through count on the game, and thanked the fans for their help in making it, well, amazing. You can see the tweet and congratulatory GIF below.

Fans have since responded in kind, appreciative of the game's feats.

Even God of War director Cory Barlog had something to say...

We're not quite sure what the team has planned next for the game, as it's already released a slew of outfits for our hero over the past few months, along with three additional DLC chapters. But whatever they're doing next, they've given us true believers a fun trip. Thanks for everything, guys!
