Is that milestone counting bundles? because NPD doesn't track bundle units sold I think

You're not mad NPD is doing a PR piece for Sony?

I was trying to avoid any discussion because i know i entered in a black list for some posters here (and i know what happens when you are labeled)  but if you want my personal opinion....

 

I wish it was not NPD who said anything about Spiderman sales, and instead was Sony, because for the same reasons i didn't like the other one, we are receiving an interpretation of sales from NPD without exact numbers, so no, i don't like either. And besides, here, it is a NPD tweet without any official collaboration with Sony, not like the other one with Nintendo.

THE PROBLEM NEVER WAS NINTENDO OR THE INFO IN ITSELF, it was the way it was announced that i consider could've been better, but i know i know, i'm crazy and all of that, but you know, is just an opinion of a regular guy, so who cares....

I guess Arkham City was its direct rival?

Either that or Arkham Knight, I'm not sure which one of those had a faster start.

Great achievement and very well deserved !

Found this on the wikipedia page for Arkham Knight:
"At release, the game was the fastest selling game of 2015, and the fastest selling game in the Arkham series, reaching over 5 million units sold globally by October 2015"

That was over 5 million in ~4 months so Spidey is over that.

That was the quote i remembered, thank you for bring it here. But are we sure they refered to actual sales and not official shipments?

While I agree it likely is over that globally, keep in mind that NPD reports on US sales and not any other (global) sales as far as I know.



1st month = 2.6m
2nd and 3rd month = below SMP(1m ltd as 28 November) so, it's safe to assume spidey in that months sold below 1m units.

Probably around 3-3.5m at the end of November



The fact it doesn't include the bundles really drives the point home.

Sometimes I really wish NPD put an equal focus on physical sales and not just revenue. It's that revenue angle that prevents them from being able to give a physical count for bundled games.

That doesn't include bundles which there were lots of in november. Does it include digital? 



MAU...ST impressive Sony!
