Spider-Man is the fastest-selling game of 2018 so far

PS4 exclusive Spider-Man is the fastest-selling game of 2018 so far.

It has just beaten previous record-holder Far Cry 5 (which was multi-platform), and sold nearly double that of the previous biggest exclusive of the year – God of War on PS4.

Two interesting points

1 – It is the best selling Marvel-branded game in history, beating previous title LEGO Marvel Super Heroes by a big margin.

2 – It’s also the fastest selling individual format game since the PS4 version of Call of Duty: WWII in November last year.

Spider-Man is the latest in a long-line of PS4 exclusive single-player games.

It doesn’t quite topple Batman: Arkham Knight as the fastest-selling superhero game this generation (in the UK). However, that game was released on more platforms and it also came out in 2015, when digital sales may not have been as strong as they are today (these UK charts do not include digital sales, and only count physical boxed units).

Here is the UKIE/GFK top ten for the week ending September 8th, 2018:
