According to the LinkedIn page of David Bull, Global Marketing Leader at PlayStation, Marvel's Spider-Man has sold more than 20 million copies since its September 2018 launch on PlayStation 4. That's an absolutely astounding statistic that builds upon the already supremely impressive 13.2 million sales from back in August 2019. We wouldn't take this as gospel — it is sourced from a LinkedIn page rather than the PlayStation Blog — but if true, it is clear proof of why Sony has invested so much into the marketing of Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PlayStation 5.
The LinkedIn profile reads: "Broke sales records with a recognized marketing campaign for Marvel's Spider-Man. Sold 3.3MM in the first three days, and over 20 million units globally." The Spider-Man brand really is a beast. Were you one of those 20+ million players? Get nostalgic about one of the best PS4 exclusives in the comments below.
