Spider-Man PS4 is one of the best Matches of This Entire Year thus far and its early sales seem to reflect this.
But, Spider-Man’s appeal on the PS4 seems to have ensured it eclipses Spider-Man: Homecoming’sopening weekend earnings in the box office as per a recent report. This is amazing for Sony when you believe that God of War, another PS4 exclusive, marketed 3.1 million components in its first 3 times this season. Spider-Man PS4 is now the fastest selling PS4 game.
“While Sony didn’t supply an official number, with a retail price of $59.99 for the match the 3.3 million copies translates to about $198 million, crushing the $117 million opening weekend box office of the latest Royal Spider-Man movie, Spider-Man: Homecoming,” according to into USA Today.
In terms of pre-orders, Spider-Man PS4 hit one million, and it will be another record for Sony. Remember that the sales of Spider-Man PS4 include the Spider-Man PS4 and PS4 Pro packages also. And while the company did not say how a lot of these consoles were sold, including their earnings would push the $198 million figure higher.
“Our expectations are always set at the highest levels,” Stephen Turvey, PlayStation’s Global Senior Vice President of Sales and Head of North America Business Operations, told USA Today. “It’s fulfilled and exceeded all expectations. I believe that the business and the campus and our fans are super proud of it”
The sales success of Spider-Man is not just restricted to markets like the US either. It has sold extremely well in India despite Sony India’s apathy regarding pre-tax bonuses along with the Spider-Man PS4 Special Edition being canceled following the game’s launch with no excuse . Multiple game stores speaking to Justabcd.com have confirmed it to be selling as well as God of War and some of them even claim that they’re unable to restock the game in time to meet demand.
