    Yeah, I'm guessing mid to high 5 millions, possibly even ~6M. 3.3M doesn't include bundles, which I'm guessing sold ~500K.

    In the UK, Spiderman only dropped 42% in week 2, and only 35% in Japan.

    For comparison:
    Really curious to see SM's NPD numbers. It was released fairly early in the month and its week 2 numbers are REALLY good according to Benji at Era. I could see it selling 3M or more in NPD's report.

    edit: I'm still not sold on the idea that it will sell 15M+. For that to happen I think it would need bundling. Without bundling, >10M seems like a certainty at this point. If I was able to change my answer, I would say 12-15M without bundling, 15M+ with.

    I doubt there will be more remakes, the last one served the purpose fine enough so it's a much better proposition for Insomniac to tackle something new. The market wants a more refreshing and unrestricted experience of Ratchet and I think Insomniac would want that too.

    I think we will get another R&C game when PS5 arrives. They'll probably want to make another smaller game then to get accustomed to new HW and increased development needs.

    I hope when and if they do another Ratchet game, they'll remember that the series used to have a considerable amount of bite.

    Disney was too aggressive, the movie IP is not theirs anymore. Asking for 50% of financing [and presumably 50% of the gross] is insane. Sony earned ~850M from Venom that they have made 100% themselves. And now Disney want ~half from upcoming core $1B Spidey films? Nah.

    Nothing last forever, Sony will return to their internal production and who knows, Disney may change their minds down the line.

    For context the last Spider-man made 1.1 billion dollars worldwide. Disney clearly want a piece of the pie.

    Not if they feel the entire success of the film is from their direct involvement or lending of Marvel characters and events into the SonyVerse for Spider-Man.

    How much did the Spider-Man movies before Disney/Marvel involvement make?


    The Amazing Spider-Man earned $262 million in North America and $495.9 million in other countries, for a worldwide total of $757.9 million.

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2 grossed $202.9 million in the United States and Canada and $506.1 million in other countries for a worldwide gross of $709 million.[4] Deadline Hollywood calculated the net profit of the film to be $70.38 million, when factoring together all expenses and revenues for the film, making it one of the top 20 most profitable releases of 2014.

    800M or so...

    They can take 50% of 1.1B with major strings attached where they must include all the marvel universe stuff which only serves to upsell disney's other franchises, and their own property cannot exist without the rest of the marvel universe like a poison pill. And they don't produce, it would be controlled by the guy who's job is to make the entire marvel universe tightly connected so you need to see all films to understand WTF is going on.

    Or... They can keep 95% of 800M which they continue to control.

    As they say in the article, it's not surprising.
