Spider-Man is a Record-Breaking Hit for PlayStation

The fastest-selling first-party Sony game.

If you think Spider-Man on PS4 is popular that's an understatement. Sony reported that Insomniac's Marvel superhero video game sold a record 3.3 million copies in the first three days. This includes copies of the game included with the limited edition Spider-Man PS4 Pro bundle.

Spider-Man PS4 is officially the fastest selling first-party video game in the history of Sony Interactive Entertainment and beat out God of War's 3.1 million sales in its first three days of sales. While there's no official sales number, USA Today estimates as more than $198 million.

Insomniac isn't resting just yet either. In October Insomniac will release the first episode in a three-part DLC set called "The City That Never Sleeps" and will feature new suits and Black Cat.

"It's met and exceeded all expectations. I think the company and the campus and our fans are super proud of it," says PlayStation global senior vice president of sales and head of North America business operations Stephen Turvey.
