Marvel’s Spider Man has become the fastest selling game of the year so far in the UK. The old records set this year by other gaming titles have been stripped off by Sony’s Exclusive game. These UK Charts do not count the digital copies of the game instead they count only the physical boxed units.
The previous record holders, Far Cry 5 and God of War have all been toppled by Marvel’s Spider-Man. Moreover, Far Cry 5 came out on other platforms including the PC and Xbox One which is why the sales numbers were high in the UK.
Additionally, it has also become the fastest selling Marvel game, beating Lego Marvel Super Heroes by a big number. However, the game didn’t quite beat Batman: Arkham Knight. But again, in its defense, Batman was released on multiple platforms while Marvel’s Spider-Man is Sony exclusive.
We have yet to see what the over-all numbers of the game copies sold will be. Bearing in mind that it has only been a few days since the game was released as well as the recorded numbers show only the physical copes of the game.
In the Top 10 list of the best selling games, and along with Marvel’s Spider-Man, F1 2018 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 are both in big places in the list. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V continues to be a hit even after all these years.
