The PlayStation 4 exclusive open-world game Marvel’s Spider-Man has been doing great on the market since its release back in September, and the game now managed to become the fastest selling superhero game in the US ever.
Analyst Mat Piscatella took a good look at the NPD sales data from November and confirmed that the game is the fastest selling superhero game in the US. He also added that no bundle sales are included in the software rankings. As the game is a high-quality open-world title, these excellent results are well deserved.

Insomniac's Spider-Man is one of the best games released this year, but it's still plagued by some issues that prevent it from being a complete masterpiece.
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.
Marvel's Spider-Man is now available in all regions exclusively on PlayStation 4.
