Miles Morales sees big sales in December

Sony had a lot of success with Spider-Man back in December, and it looks like the success has spread beyond the release of Spider-Man: No Path Home. According to industry analyst @BenjiSales, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales saw a sharp increase in digital sales on PlayStation 5 last month, rising to the second best-selling digital game on the platform in the United States and number four in Europe. While Miles Morales launched alongside the PS5 in 2020, sales of the game have actually exceeded Call of Duty: The Vanguard, which was only in its second month of availability. @BenjiSales attributed the success to restocking the PS5, as well as the interest that followed No way home.

@BenjiSales’s Tweet is embedded below.

It’s important to note that these sales are made strictly on the PS5 platform and only consider digital copies of the game. Either way, it’s interesting to see the game getting a big boost. inch No way home, despite the fact that Miles does not appear in the film. Of course, it’s also the most recent game to feature Spider-Man, and the one that received many rave reviews after its release; ComicBook.com even called it one of the best games of 2020. Given that, it’s no surprise that some moviegoers turned to the game after seeing the movie!

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will have to overcome the owners of PS5 for some time. Peter Parker will return in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (alongside Miles), but that game isn’t set to release until 2023, and it’s unclear whether it will arrive earlier or later in the year. Hopefully developer Insomniac Games won’t keep fans waiting too long for more info on the sequel!
