Spider-Man Swings Straight in at Number 1 and Becomes Fastest Selling Game of the Year

You may have heard, but the much-hyped PlayStation exclusive Spider-Man released on Friday, and it hasn’t take long for it to start to break records.

Your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man has not only landed straight in at number 1 in the charts, but his latest title has also become the fastest-selling game of the year so far, the fastest-selling Spider-Man game of all time and the fastest-selling Marvel game of all time. Not bad, eh?

If this carries on, Spidey may have to ask his arch enemy Doctor Octopus to help him carry some of his accolades. You can see what we thought of Spider-Man PS4 here.

Elsewhere in the charts, the newly-released Destiny 2 expansion Forsaken arrived at number 8 (which could possibly be seen as a disappointment?) and our ex that we keep an eye on from a distance (but not in a stalker-ish way, obviously), PES 2019, continued to suffer it’s disappointing sales so far as it dropped to 6th.

The top 10 list is as follows:

  1. Spider-Man
  2. Dragon Quest 11
  3. GTA5
  4. F1 2018
  5. Crash Trilogy
  6. PES 2019
  7. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  8. Destiny 2: Forsaken
  9. PlayerUnknowns Battlegrounds
  10. Lego The Incredibles
