Forums - Sales Discussion - Spider-Man Crushing God Of War In Some Regions

Do we have any idea how many bundles there were? Also, it looks clear now that we may be looking at a 5 million first month. Both UK and Japan had a solid 50-60 percent hold going into second week so you are already looking at at least 4.5 million with 15 days to go. At this point Spider-man is still the number one game at Amazon with nothing in site to challenge it (that Classic PSOne at #1!) so 5 million looks like a sure thing easily.

Yeah, that's the thing. Spider-Man continues to be number one in many places. We don't know yet how many bundled copies were sold though but we should be able to add 200-300k, no?

I think you're right about 5 mill being highly plausible first month.

It sure is

Number doesn't include copies of the game in the bundles though. So the 3s are going to be ruined.

Yeah, that's good stuff for sure. Also probably doesn't include digital sales numbers. 

The 3.3 mill include digital sales.

I thought we had more data than Japan and UK already... well it is a good start after all.

When do you guys think the first week sales will be reported?
It came out almost 2 weeks ago, I’m so curious to know the WW impact *.*
Ps: I predict at least 3M

Holy shit. We have official numbers.

3.3 mill in 3 days.

OMG, finally!

Those numbers are so impressive. I think it could reach 5 millions in its first week and if that happens SM is basically going to tie COD WW2 which belongs to -sadly, imo ahah - one of the biggest franchise ever and also came out as a multiplatform game.

W O W.

I said that 3-5 FW wasn't impossible, seem like my lower end was the right one =]
Congrats, and considering the drop for second week we saw and bundles this could be nearing 5M in 2 weeks.

Pretty impressive but God of War also has great legs, it can still be found in or near the top 10 worldwide. For everyone claiming this is about market appeal. Batman is more popular than Spiderman yet the Arkham games never did these kind of numbers. Sony marketed the shit out of this and it paid off,because the game looks great and plays great. Sure it helped that Spidey is the protagonist. Although I doubt it will outsell GOW in the long run.

 

 

Actually, that's not true. Batman is considered more iconic than Spider-man. But he's not more popular. Superman is considered most iconic, with Batman being the second. And Spider-man being the third.

 

As for more popular, for every one Batman item that gets sold, almost 10 Spider-Man products get sold. So Spider-man is the more popular character. To go even further, Spider-man is the most profitable superhero on the planet.

Wow, the power of the kids I guess. What I take out of this is pretty much, whatever product you create IF it appeals to the children market than BAM you have a winner. The Lion King is also HUGE in this department.

Batman and Superman are too cool but SPidey has this image that is more kid friendly, I guess. And let's face it, $$$ don't lie.

I NEVER see a grown adult in public wearing a spiderman t-shirt. But how many...and REPEAT....how many times do I see someone sporting a batman t-shirt and ESPECIALLY a superman t-shirt??? I could see one of those 2-3 times a day when walking around lol in the summer. No one wears the SPiderman logo.

 

But see? As far as toys, pillows or bed sheets....you name it. Spiderman will do the numbers in these "kids" categories.

Not sure, I do have batman and spidey outfits, don't care about superman.

Perhaps people want to think of themselves more seriously than Spidey.

I agree, I see Batman and Superman much more than Spider.

I do have Batman and Superman stuff, I myself couldn't care less about Spider.



God bless You.
