Sony previously highlighted that “Spider-Man 2” became the fastest-selling title from PlayStation Studios over a 24-hour window, where it sold an impressive figure of over 2.5 million copies. This initial surge of sales put “Spider-Man 2” ahead of another heavy hitter, “God of War Ragnarok,” on PlayStation’s all-time first-day launch sales leaderboard.
#### A Heroic Showdown in Sales
The much-acclaimed “God of War Ragnarok” had its own spotlight, selling 5.1 million units in its debut week, indicating strong ongoing sales despite “Spider-Man 2” taking the lead on the first day. It should be noted that “God of War Ragnarok” was available on both PS4 and PS5, thereby reaching a larger market base, whereas “Spider-Man 2” delighted the exclusive audience of PS5 users.
Adding to that, Naughty Dog’s “The Last of Us Part 2” previously set records as the fastest-selling PS4 exclusive, clearing over four million copies in the first three days on sale. Insomniac’s inaugural Spider-Man title also showcased a strong opening, with 3.3 million copies sold in its initial three-day sales period.
