The two Marvel’s Spider-Man games have sold a spider-sense tingling 33 million copies on just the PS5 and PS4 alone, but you wouldn’t rule out the series pushing several million more units when it comes to PC, would you? Pre-orders opened for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered today, and the release is already wall climbing its way to the top of the Steam best-sellers list.
That’s despite the port – helmed by Dutch developer NIXXES Software – carrying a pretty extortionate £54.99/$59.99 price point. The game’s pretty cheap these days on PlayStation – in fact, you can download the PS4 version specifically as one of All PS Plus Games – but we suppose Sony is looking to extract as much profit as possible from PC players. Looking at these initial pre-order numbers, the strategy is working.
It’s worth noting that the other big seller on Steam today is Stray, the console exclusive cat game that Sony’s been promoting hard. All in all, we’d say the PlayStation marketing machine is in full working order – even if it can be a bit frustrating at times.
Calling it now top selling game in August
@Americansamurai1 It's possible for sure.
Interesting to see Valve Index so high up, seeing that much of an interest in VR seems very promising for PSVR2.
There is no question it's gonna sell like crazy on PC. A great Spider-Man game with mod support? The internet will have a field day with this. I can't wait to see the Bully Maguire mods!🤣
As it should. Spider-Man 1 & MM are GOD-tier games in the superhero market, and they make the most sense out of all the PlayStation PC ports (besides Bloodborne of course). They'll sell like gangbusters and I wouldn't be surprised if they're Sony's most profitable ports since its frickin' Spider-Man!
People often talk smack about PlayStation games...but they always scramble to get them whenever they can...(even, in some cases, going so far as complaining that God of War can't be streamed to Xbox consoles)
As it should be. If PC players truly want it, either pay top dollar or wait for sales
This game is gonna print money on PC. It’ll only embolden Sony more as they shrink the wait time between console and PC releases.
I will get it eventually, but since I Platniumed the game twice with all DLC trophies and played through in NG + for the 100% on Ps5 I will wait for the price to drop around $25 AUD. Now sony please put GOT on PC already I will literally pay full price for that port, haven't played Iki Island so I'm making an excuse to double dip!
I look forward to playing this at the current top visuals but with the OG Peter Parker again.
@Korgon I can hear and see Bully Ma guide’s dance from Spider-Man 3. And hear the music in the background
@GorosBat I’m certain GOT will come to PC. Sucker punch isn’t working on like an infamous or something idk. Pretty sure they are doing GOT 2 and then port the 1st one to PC eventually
I never thought it was a matter of "if", but a matter of when, out of all PS exclusives GOT and Bloodborne seem to be the ones most PC gamers want, so I will be surprised if GOT isn't on PC by the end of next year.
@GorosBat Not sure about Bloodborne, to be honest. Remember the hype over the remake of Demon's souls? Or over The Last Guardian? Yet neither game ended up selling particularly well.
I'm sure, Spiderman will do exceptionally well, though.
@Americansamurai1 Definitely possible. God of War did exceptionally well and Horizon pretty well. A good later revenue stream for Sony that can be reinvested in more/bigger games and acquisitions.
I only have one question... Will we, PS5 users, ever be able to purchase this game (the remake) on the Playstation Store? Because as far as I can tell, it was bundled with Miles Morales Ultimate Edition. Would be nice to have the option to buy iy separately
It's a matter of time until exclusives take less and less time to be ported to PC. Sony knows there's a lot of money there to be made.
@get2sammyb @Americansamurai1 I will be more shocked if it doesn't become the top seller in August!
The original release was a great game and I even enjoyed the DLC...one of these days I'll go back and play thru the Remastered version.
This will sell bucket loads. Not only is it a very desirable IP, but its a slickly put together piece of software design that screams class in a way the bulk of pc releases do not imo. It looks like a properly realised port too and should look absolutely sumptuous if you have the right rig!
