Marvel’s Spider-Man has outsold Far Cry 5 which is a multiplatform release despite being exclusive to the PS4 in the UK.
This week’s sales result showed that FIFA 19 was the top-selling game of the week. It has also become the top selling game of the year with just the debut week sales but there was still a drop of around 25% compared to FIFA 18. This might be due to the increased digital sales but it is still a significant number.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is continuing to have steady legs and selling rather well even in its fourth week. It has now outsold the life-to-date sales on Far Cry 5 from Ubisoft in less than a month, even though Far Cry 5 was out in March. This means Spider-Man PS4 is now the second best selling game next to FIFA 19 in the UK. If FIFA 19 didn’t launch in the UK this week, it might have become the best selling game overall.
Marvel’s Spider-Man launch week sales were already double of God of War, and it sold through 3.3 million copies in just 3 days, beating the record set by God of War, which means it should have no problem becoming the best selling exclusive game of all time on the PS4 in the long run.
