- Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is Insomniac Games’ latest venture, launching as a first-party PS5 title.
- The title has won over the hearts of players across the globe, thanks to its all-around quality.
- PlayStation Blog has revealed that the game was October’s most downloaded game.
Saying that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 hasn’t been anything short of a blockbuster would be an understatement for the title, considering its popularity that has stretched all across the world. The recent string of news pertaining to its success comes from PlayStation Blog, where a ranking of the most downloaded games of October has been laid out, with Spider-Man 2 reigning supreme.
“It’s time to see which PS5, PS4, PS VR2, PS VR, and free-to-play games topped the download charts this month. The newly released Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 swung to the top of October’s PS5 list. For PS VR2, Beat Saber rocked to the top of the list,” reads the blog post, following up with a chart of the titles that made the cut. As expected, Spider-Man 2 is right up there on the top, leading the rest of the entries.
It bears mentioning that the game made it to the top for multiple regions, including the US, Canada, and Europe, unlike the rest of the titles present on the list. Surprisingly, Alan Wake 2 is quite down there on the charts, especially in the US/Canada section, but that’s probably due to the game releasing on October 27, and allowing only 3-4 days of tracking.

The blog post takes into account downloads for the PlayStation 4 as well and has Red Dead Redemption 2 leading the front in the US/Canada section. Across the pond and into European countries, the relatively newly released EA Sports FC 24 has topped the charts, being EA’s first football simulator after the company severed ties with the global authority on football FIFA.
Outside of the PSVR2 and PSVR rankings, the blog included a section for free-to-play games as well, allowing Roblox to fall into the spotlight, sprinting just ahead of My Hero Ultra Rumble — an anime-based battle-royale — Fortnite, and Disney Speedstorm. Titles, such as Apex Legends, Rocket League, and Call of Duty: Warzone also earned their spots on the list.
In other news, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 has been off to a tremendous start. The action-adventure sold 2.5 million copies in a single day, breaking sales records by becoming the fastest-selling PlayStation game in history. And that too, without a PlayStation 4 port of the title. With the level of quality on display here, it’s only likely that sales for the title will continue to fly high.
Spider-Man 2 was released on October 20, 2023, for the PlayStation 5 as a first-party title. In eXputer’s review of the game, Usama called it yet another incredible PlayStation exclusive, scoring it 4/5.
