Forums - Sony Discussion - Prediction: PS4 Spider-Man will outsell best selling Batman game - Arkham City

It could happen. I think having an exclusive beating a popular third party game on multiple platforms would be really impressive.

I don't think it would beat Arkham on either count.

Well the game sure seems like great, but of course it could turn out crap (don't think so) or have troll reviewers by the dozen. Still the game have a good chance of entering 10M sales.

It's a good point. We all know about the hero, bu we still didn't see the game. It could bring a bad story, it could be repetitive.. we don't know... Even with all the hype, the sales could drop after 2-3 weeks if the game isn't as good as many think it will be.

Obviously, as a game for the most sold console in this generation, it's got everything to do really well though

Yep, I'm in favor of in the absence of other info use what is now. So benefit of doubt when track history is good, and skepticism when it is bad.

6m lifetime would be an achievement.

Over 9m as of November 25th, 2.5 months after it's launch and pre-christmas.

It's probably at 12m-14m by now.

You were right on the money.

Yeah Im thinking its ~14m by now too.

That resent drop to 19$, lead to massive sales too, spiderman is gonna stay relavent until PS5, and keep selling decently I suspect.

I remember that :)

"Monster hunter's "core" was japanese handheld users, that wouldnt want to play it on a PS4. So it was doomed to fail"

What happend? they put in effort, and the western markets rewarded them for it.
MHW is such a massive upgrade to the series, I doubt most "core" monster hunter fans, would want to go back now.

Its shipped more than 13m units by now, and it has a expansion comeing soon, that ll re-ignite the sales in the series again.



Well. there is a huge factor that took action for this Spider Man game, and it is marketing.
