Marvel’s Spider-Man Has Sold More Than 9 Million Copies
Single player games are well and alive
Marvel’s Spider-Man, Insomniac Games take on the iconic web crawlers, had sold more than 9 million copies worldwide.
The number is from Sony Interactive Entertainment, counting both physical copies and digital sales from the Playstation Store up to November 25, 2018. Given that it is a PS4 exclusive, it’s safe to say this is a pretty accurate number.
Given that this is a single player game with no multiplayer element whatsoever, that’s an impressive number. And this is before the holiday sales which for sure bump the numbers higher.
This should instill confidence, or convince, publishers that single player games still have its appeal. Especially console exclusive ones.
It is also helped that Marvel’s Spider-Man is a pretty decent game overall, based on what we’ve played at a preview event last year.
