12 new entries made it to September’s charts, with FIFA taking the top spot despite underwhelming sales.
"Sony’s Spider-Man had to settle for No.2 for its first month in the charts but is still an incredible success, shifting 44 per cent more copies than Uncharted 4 did on its first month, 94 per cent more than Horizon Zero Dawn and 138 per cent more than God of War." Wow!
what ? i thought GOW was the fastest selling PS4 exclusive before Spiderman?
This is strictly UK
I think that was for the opening 3 day sales.
Uk <> world.
Each PS Exclusives exceeds the next Now that’s what I call consistency and greatness
Also: "The PS4 did (again, unsurprisingly) exceptionally well in September, taking a 62.8 per cent market share compared to 40.4 per cent in August."

That is impressive. For me it's not as good as those three games, but it's solid and obviously Spiderman is an extremely popular character and brand.
And am still yet to own a copy 😔
Well knowing that in the the first month uncharted 4 sold around 280k only in the UK that means Spider man is at 410k physical copies by now. And including digital around 600k. And if these ratios apply worldwide and are similar, which I believe is the case since the launch week was also 50% more than uncharted 4 than by global sales are around 4.2m physical copies and 6.3m including digital. So the predictions of 10m once the holiday period is over is quite likely.
Nice, Spider-Man still killing it.
How are people still buying GTAV? I mean it's great but still.
New people buy consoles every day...GTA is an ever green title that most people buy when they pick up a console....
Am one of those just now playing GTA5 on current Gen consoles, PS4 for the first time. I only played the game once on ps3
I haven't bought GTA V yet...
People need to quit buying EA until they completely redo their entire company.
Why are the mugs still buying FIFA that’s the big question. Same shit year in year out.
There's a substantially large amount of people in the UK and Ireland who buy only 1 game for their console and it's Fifa. Every year. I work with 3 of these people. I mean they don't even download the free games with their services each month. Just Fifa
Don't forget scam-level microtransactions. But for some reason it doesn't seem to get punished for it in either reviews and sales (however, as the article notes there was a distinct drop in sales compared to last year).
Not only it same shit. But this time they didn't bother to touch the career mode or any other aspect of the game at all, all they did was Champion league licenses and a rooster update lol
Why is fifa games still selling well....
Like seriously...Football is HUGE in Europe..there is your answer. It's not rocket science.
"Even Spider-Man can’t stop football" That's a fight that not even pre-retcon Beyonder would win. Nothing stops football in Europe.
