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

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

Digital included and the bundle doesn't count since it contributes nothing to the software revenue.

Wiki isn't always the best source for accurate data, as nearly anyone can edit it and be outdated/wrong while doing so. When it comes to general info (like someone famous, for example), I use it, but for data, I rely solely on data trackers and/or the companies themselves.

Yes, NPD tracks digital sales for Sony games. Besides, it's not exactly 2'6M either, was 2'6M+ because it was said that Spiderman was closer to Halo's record 3'3M than God of War 1'9M, so people considered it sold more than 2'6M (half). Later Matt Piscatella confirmed Spiderman had sold more than Smash Brawl, and if remember correctly, it was almost 2'7M for that game.

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.

I still can't believe they didn't count a full price bundle like 380$ SMO bundle+carrying case.

Yes Sony is part of NPD's digital reporting program.  But as you mentioned, it doesn't include bundles which is probaby 500k from the BF deal.  so 4m+

Probably just a general policy.  No bundles even if that bundle is exactly the same price as console + game.

Grand so it's overall sales are even higher with the bundles and all we know is it was between 2.6m and 3.3m so we can't simple settle with 2.6m. What a beast this game is.

My estimation wasn't taking SMP first month into the consideration so 2nd and 3rd month are probably lower than 800k ranged for SMP and much lower for Spiderman.

Yes, Spiderman did not sold that great during October and November in USA (without BF bundles i mean). But still, without bundles..., I guess Spiderman should be around....3'6-3'7M at the end of November. 



This reminds me. I still need to finish this game. I'm off work for the next 6-8 weeks so I should have plenty of time to finish it and the other games in my backlog.
