Superhero spin-off Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has already outsold PlayStation 4 juggernauts The Last of Us: Part II and Ghost of Tsushima in the United States – despite launching in mid-November. Naughty Dog’s survival horror sequel released in June, while Sucker Punch’s historical open world deployed in July – although it’s worth noting that Insomniac Games’ sandbox released on two platforms: PS5 and PS4.
NPD data pegs Miles Morales as the fifth best-selling game from the past 12 months, while The Last of Us: Part II and Ghost of Tsushima are locked in seventh and eighth respectively. The chart is ordered based on dollar sales, and Spider-Man has two SKUs available priced at $49.99 and $69.99. The other two titles retailed for $59.99.
Considering how successful both The Last of Us: Part II and Ghost of Tsushima undoubtedly were, this is quite an eye-opening result. The data takes into account both physical and digital sales, so it paints an accurate picture for the United States at least. Obviously, the sales of Miles Morales are boosted by its association with the PS5 – but look, that inevitable Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is shaping up to be one of Sony’s biggest games of all time, isn’t it?
