Spider-Man PS4 Sold 3.3 Million Units in First 3 Days

Marvel's Spider-Man video game sold a record 3.3 million units in its first three days of release.

That bested God of War, which held the previous record for a PlayStation 4 game, with about 3.1 million units sold in its first three days. One million customers preordered the web-slinger's new game, developed by Insomniac Games, which represents another record for Sony.

According to USA Today, that figure does not take into account the Spider-Man limited-edition version of the PlayStation 4 Pro bundle, which includes the Sony console with Spider-Man's signature logo on it and a copy of the game.

Although Sony didn't release an accounting, by USA Today's calculations, 3.3 million copies -- with a $59.99 retail price -- means the game earned more than $197 million during that initial period. For comparison, Spider-Man: Homecoming raked in $117 million at the box office during its opening weekend. The game isn't just a financial hit, though; it also received overwhelmingly positive reviews from fans and critics.
