Good spider-man sales, switch still above 40k which is good and disappointing ps4 sales. No real major boost for spider-man.

So I guess, even Spidey can't make hardware sales go up ... (even with the PS4 Pro bundle).

But it did go up and without this probably would have dropped to 15k a week. As someone just said it's outpacing the ps3 and every month increases that lead. 

PS4 is in front of the PS3, but the PS3 is starting to sell faster than PS4 again. If PS4 doesn't pick up the slack then PS3 will pass in front again during or after the holiday season.

The lead in that gap chart shows 307k but the current lead is now 461k in favor of the PS4. PS4 is extending its lead over the PS3.

Yeah every week now ps4 is extending its lead and the holiday it will stretch it even further. What will decide if the ps4 stays ahead is if Sony drop the price or not. I'd imagine this year or next year they will.

Thanks for posting this.  That is good to know.

Does anyone know how Spiderman ranks with other top Japanese releases for 2018?  I would guess Monster Hunter World sold better FW.  Does this make Spiderman #2 so far?

Spiderman has the 3rd biggest opening in Japan so far this year. Here's a list:

Interesting News: Marvel’s Spider-Man Sold 96% of Initial Shipment in Japan!


"Marvel’s Spider-Man sold 125,154 units (retail, without digital sales) in Japan in its first week, according to Media Create for the week ending September 9. The firm has now released its weekly analysis and revealed that the game sold through 96.17 percent o its initial shipment in the first week. Media Create estimates that a large amount of people in Japan were not able to find a copy of the game and bought the game digitally through the PlayStation Store".



Good opening for Spiderman. I believe I saw a Famitsu comparison that it was the best selling Spiderman game ever in Japan. Nice work!

And snuggle the girls be they short or tall,
Then follow young Mat whenever he calls,
To dance with Jak o' the Shadows."
