Marvel’s Spider-Man Sold 3.3 Million Units in Three Days Since Launch
We knew that Marvel’s Spider-Man had debuted with strong sales in the UK and Japan, but we didn’t have any global sales data until today when the official PlayStation account on Twitter revealed that the game sold 3.3 million units in its first three days since launch.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is setting records! It’s now the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation title, selling 3.3M+ in its first 3 days. Thanks to all the fans, and congrats to @InsomniacGames & @MarvelGames! #SpiderManPS4 pic.twitter.com/64SIZtdBqp

Needless to say, that’s a great result and one that already makes it the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation game to date. It’s definitely well-deserved, as pointed out by Kai in his review of the game.
Marvel’s Spider-Man does so many things right and swings its way towards greatness, but it just can’t nail the superhero landing. A few holes in the spider-web of deceit and villainy can be quite visible if you focus too much on the story. If you look beyond that and focusing on the web-slinging and combat, Insomniac has created what is certainly one of the best superhero games to date.
Insomniac has found a way to weave together the human side of Peter Parker with the combat and web-slinging of Spider-Man to create a web of intrigue that any PlayStation 4-owning superhero fan should play.
