Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 sold more than 2.5 million copies worldwide over its first 24 hours to become the “fastest-selling PlayStation Studios games in PlayStation history” after the first 24 hours.
This sales number includes preorders and copies sold in the Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle.
2022’s God of War Ragnarok was previously the fastest-selling PlayStation Studios game ever, selling 5 million copies in a week. Before that, The Last of Us: Part II was the fastest-selling PlayStation game ever, moving 4 million copies in three days.
Insomniac’s 2018 original Spider-Man sold 3.3 million copies in three days, and 2018’s God of War moved 3.1 million units over its first three days. Spider-Man 2 has big shoes to fill to catch up to the original game, which sold more than 33 million copies.
It doesn’t appear Sony has announced a 24-hour sales figure for a previous release before, so there doesn’t seem to be a good way to directly compare sales from those games and others.

GameSpot’s Spider-Man 2 review scored the game an 8/10. Reviewer Jordan Ramee said, “All in all, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 may largely give us more of what we’ve played in Insomniac’s previous Spider-Man games, but that winning formula is still so damn fun that it really doesn’t matter.”
