Never before has a Sony game sold so many times so quickly: 2.5 million PS5 owners signed up for it in the first 24 hours Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 decided.

The most important PlayStation exclusive novelty in the 2023 Christmas season is proving to be the expected blockbuster: Sony Interactive is reporting for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 a sales figure of 2.5 million copies within the first 24 hours of launch last Friday (October 20th).

The superhero action adventure comes from the Californian Sony studio Insomniac Games and is available exclusively for the PlayStation 5. With Marvel’s Spider-Man, Miles Morales and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Insomniac had already delivered several bestsellers.

The previous Sony company record only lasted just under a year: Because it wasn’t until November 2022 God of War Ragnarök Santa Monica Studio set the benchmark, but based on different time periods. Accordingly, 5.1 million units for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 were sold in the first week – and that’s it The Last of Us 2 from Naughty Dog, which found 4 million buyers in three days.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is offered commercially in several variants: In addition to the PS5 game (€80), a Digital Deluxe version (€99) and a Collector’s Edition (€250), two PS5 bundles are also available – a regular one with console plus game for €619.99 and a ‘ Limited Edition’ with PlayStation 5 and controller Spider-Man-2-Look (RRP €659.99). In this case too, the download code for activation in the PlayStation Store is included.
