The Last of Us Part II
Developer: Naughty Dog
It is, in fact, Sony’s best-selling game over the last twelve months.
There was little doubt in anyone’s mind that Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales would sell a lot. Its predecessor is one of Sony’s most successful games of all time, of course- but given its status as essentially a standalone expansion in all but name, most were expecting significantly lower sales. Well, it seems that hasn’t been the case. The NPD Group recently released data for video game sales in the US for March 2021, and while doing so, also spoke of how sales figures overall have looked over the last twelve months.
Over the last twelve months, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales has been the fifth highest selling game in the US in terms of dollar sales, and is, in fact, Sony’s best-selling game in the region throughout the entire period. Notably, that even puts it ahead of other Sony megatons like The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima, which are placed seventh and eighth respectively.
As for the game’s total worldwide sales so far, it’s been a while since Sony announced updates sales figures for it, but we do know that it sold 4.1 million units in 2020.
Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is available on PS5 and PS4, while Ghost of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part 2 are available on PS4.
