This Day In Pop Culture History September 7th, 2018 Spider-Man for PS4 was released

One year ago today Sony released Spider-Man for the Playstation 4. With the recent battle between Marvel and Sony for the rights of the character to be used in film, what an appropriate time to revisit such a well made game.

In honor of Spider-Man’s first birthday, we thought what a better way to say happy birthday than with some cool facts! Everybody loves facts! Especially scientists.

1. The game has sold 13 million copies as of July 2019

And that includes over 3 million copies in the US alone.


2. The game was nominated for over 90 awards

Even though it only won a handful, this is still an impressive stat.


3. The voice of Spider-Man, Yuri Lowenthal, is an accomplished voice actor.

He has roles that range from anime to American animation that include roles on Young Justice, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Bleach, Naruto, Gurren Lagann, and many more.


4. The Publisher, Insomniac Games, also gave us Spyro The Dragon

That’s right, the same people that developed one of the most amazing superhero video games of all time also gave us without a doubt, the best first person dragon game of all time.


5. The game takes place on Earth-1048

The game is set in a completely original timeline to anything else in the Marvel universe. Since the release of the game, comics and other media have been released that take place on Earth 1048.
