Since its August 2022 release, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered has sold more than 1.5 million copies on PC.
The popular superhero game is featured on a slide in Sony’s most recent corporate presentation that discusses the output of PlayStation PC games. As of April 23, 2023, the Marvel’s Spider-Man PC port had generated $52 million in revenue, according to that slide.
It makes sense that the PlayStation 4 adaptation (by Nixxes Software) of the popular PlayStation 4 game by Insomniac Games will also be a major hit. The game had more than 66,000 active players on opening day on Steam, making it the second-largest debut of any PlayStation Studios title on the service.
The new milestone for the port goes along with the series’ overall claimed 33 million copies sold last year, which also includes the 2020 game Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. And whether it was planned or not, Sony announced this accomplishment in advance of their next PlayStation event, which is rumoured to include Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

PlayStation continues to put some faith in the PC market
The presentation did not contain data for the Miles Morales port, however Sony did provide data for The Last of Us Part I for PC. The port of the game, which came out in late March (in a somewhat shaky state), has so far generated $15.5 million in sales and sold 368,000 copies.
For its first-party PS4 and PlayStation 5 games, Sony has been regularly releasing PC versions. These games generated $250 million in revenue for what looks to be the fiscal year 2022–2023, including PC money sales from the Bungie acquisition in July 2022.
Sony anticipates that their PC ports will generate $450 million in income for the 2023–2024 fiscal year, an increase of 80% over the previous year.
Sony Interactive CEO Jim Ryan reiterated that first-party PlayStation games will first launch on PlayStation platforms despite this growing success on PC. He recently disclosed to Famitsu that the business was “increasing the number of PS5-exclusive titles and staggering the release of the PC version.”Add to favorites
