Spider-Man for PS4 has dethroned Batman: Arkham City as the best-selling superhero game of all time
Last year, one of the most-anticipated games to launch was Insomniac's Spider-Man game. It was a PlayStation 4 exclusive, and became a major system-seller, being one of the 2018's best critical and commercial video game successes. And according to the American market research trackers, the NPD Group, Spider-Man is still going strong. As of the latest NPD report, Spider-Man PS4 has overtaken Batman: Arkham City to become the highest-selling superhero video game of all time in North America. This feat can be considered as rather impressive, as Arkham City had multiple releases on various platforms, while Spider-Man has been a single-system exclusive game. Amusingly enough, the top-10 superhero games all feature either Batman or Spider-Man in some way, with Arkham Knight and Asylum, LEGO Batman, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The Spider-Man movie game adaptations, and Injustice all ranking on the list.
