We learn that the game was almost sold out, selling 96.17% of the total initial shipment. Media Create estimates that a considerable number of purchasers resorted to buying the digital download version of the game on the PlayStation Store, because there were shortages at retailers.
While games with Spider-Man as a protagonist have been released in Japan before, Media Create believes that Insomniac Games’ title had the strongest launch among them all.
In addition, it significantly affected sales of PS4 Pro Pro, as the limited edition bundle sold through to customers 4,000 units on its own.
We recently heard that the game has done really well in the U.K. as well.
