Spider-Man 2 is now the fastest selling PlayStation game in history

It took the PS4 Spider-Man game three days to reach 3.3 million sales but the PS5 sequel has achieved 2.5 million in just 24 hours.

Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man 2 was always a guaranteed hit, given the popularity of both the character and the original PlayStation 4 game .

Earlier today, UK sales data revealed that the sequel had taken the top spot on the physical charts and now there’s confirmation from Sony that it has outperformed its predecessor.

In its first 24 hours, Spider-Man 2 sold more than 2.5 million copies, which Sony says makes it the fastest-selling exclusive in PlayStation history.

As a reminder, that honour originally belonged to the PlayStation Spider-Man game. Sony, for whatever reason, doesn’t highlight this, so there’s no direct comparison.

However, it is known that the PlayStation 4 game took three days to push 3.3 million units. So, Spider-Man 2’s sales must have exceeded that over the weekend.

The PlayStation 4 game went on to sell over 9 million copies by the end of November 2018, two months after its September launch, so it’ll be interesting to see if Spider-Man 2 keeps up the pace.

‘Insomniac Games holds itself to incredibly high standards when it comes to delivering engaging and innovative gameplay experiences,’ says Eric Lempel, senior vice president and head of global marketing, sales, and business operations at PlayStation.

‘On behalf of Sony Interactive Entertainment, I want to say thank you to the fans – we truly hope you are enjoying your time playing as Peter and Miles in this amazing adventure.’

This news is bound to have made Marvel very happy as well, especially since it hasn’t had the best luck with video games in recent years. With the exception of Insomniac’s Spider-Man games, Marvel projects keep underperforming even when they enjoy strong critical reception, such as Square Enix’s Guardians Of The Galaxy and 2K’s Midnight Suns .

Spider-Man 2’s success also means all parties involved have more incentive to push out at least one more sequel. Insomniac has already set things up for a Spider-Man 3 [warning: spoilers!] and a potential Venom spin-off . Not to mention, it still has its Wolverine project in the works.

Spider-Man 2 is available for PlayStation 5.
