The craze for Marvel is not hidden from anyone. From kids to adults, everyone is a great fan of Marvel heroes. There are several heroes featured in the Marvel series who are everyone’s favorites, but some of them have a separate fan base. Here, in this news, you will find the news related to one such Marvel character, which will excite moviegoers and delight video game lovers. Yes, your assumption is right. We are talking about “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” on PlayStation 2, which has set a record for the fastest-selling PlayStation studio game.

This fastest-selling book is a clear sign that people are crazy about Marvel characters. Although Spider-Man is always the favorite Marvel character, especially among children, teens, and adults, this type of craze is entirely unexpected. Besides, this news was shared during a press release in which it was mentioned that “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” broke the record on its very first day of opening. Within 24 hours, people had bought more than 2.5 million copies of this game. The game launched on Friday, October 20, 2023, as a PS5 exclusive. The sale of this game has now set a benchmark for other games, and it will be exciting to watch which game will break the record.

Well, as of now, “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” has been reported as the first one to break the record at PlayStation Studios. This record-breaking feat is quite impressive and is a PlayStation 5 exclusive, which means it is not available on any other console. This game was the first of Sony+ Interactive Entertainment to be released solely for the PS5 without being consistent with the PS4. The parent company of PlayStation Studios states that more than 2.5 million copies have been sold, and that figure includes the sales of pre-orders of single units and units bundled with PS5.

The record-breaking sales of Spider-Man 2 have beat the record of God of War Ragnarok, the game launched by Santa Monica Studio, and hold the top position at the PlayStation Day-One launch sales chart. Furthermore, Sony+ Interactive Entertainment priced the standard version of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 at around $69.99 and $79.00 for the deluxe edition. As per Marvel, only the users of PlayStation have access to the new “Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” since it is solely for that console. This game was created with the collaboration of Insomniac Games, PlayStation Studios, and Marvel Games. One of the best features of this game is that users will get the opportunity to play as both Miles Morales and Peter Parker.

Other features of this game include the ability to shoot webs as well as swing around New York City. They will also fight with villains and continue to follow the storyline of the game. In short, users will get the feeling of the movie in the form of the game, and the only thing is that the user will direct characters Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Eric Lempel, SVP of global marketing, business, and sales operations, states in the press release, “From the side of Sony Interactive Entertainment, I would like to express my gratitude to the fans who show their immense love for this game, and we truly hope that you are enjoying your time playing as Miles and Peter in this amazing and wonderful adventure.”

He further adds, “With a stunning plot, two playable Super Heroes, a visually wonderful Marvel’s New York, and so much more, this is a stunning game that has the ability to hold the users to the edge of their seats for several hours. We are hoping that people will continue to shower their immense love on it.” Eric states, “When it comes to delivering innovative and engaging gameplay experiences, Insomniac Games has never disappointed its users and always tries to provide wonderful experiences. Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is the third installment of Insomniac Games in the franchise for PlayStation. This game is developed from the ground up and takes advantage of the different features of the PlayStation 5. The aim of this game is to build off the storylines, action, and features from the initial two games..

However, the game has also faced some criticism from game lovers over its length, as the main story takes around 15 hours to finish. With side content included, that comes to about 40 hours, which is a pretty standard length for a video game. However, some games released this year, like Baldur’s Gate 3, have the potential to be played for hundreds of hours. Moreover, the game is receiving praise for its wonderful representation of the culture of Puerto Ricans, but still, it is facing criticism, and the reason is its flag, which has confused users with that of Cuba in the house of the main character. To clear up the confusion, the creators of the game have decided to fix the mistake.
