Spider-Man PS4 is off to a swinging start as Insomniac's Marvel superhero game became the fastest-selling game of 2018 in the UK so far.
According to sister site GamesIndustry.biz, Spider-Man PS4 narrowly beat Far Cry 5 for the honor of fastest-selling game this year and has already sold double what God of War did. Spider-Man PS4 is also the fastest-selling Marvel game in the UK, trouncing Lego Marvel Super Heroes.
In the UK at least, Spider-Man hasn't quite beaten Batman: Akrham Knight for fastest-selling superhero game, but that's excluding digital sales or the fact that Arkham Knight was multiplatform at launch.
We'll have to wait and see until next month's September sales reports for the US comes out to offer a glimpse at Spider-Man sales on our side of the pond. However, reactions to the PlayStation 4 exclusive has been overwhelmingly positive, and Spidey has a homefield advantage as a native New Yorker.
