Despite the various criticisms and issues linked to Sony's PlayStation brand, console exclusive titles are still selling like hot pancakes. Based on the latest UK sales chart report, Marvel's Spiderman has been tagged as the fastest selling Spider-Man game ever, the fastest selling Marvel title and is now considered as the biggest debut on an individual format since the PS4 version of COD: WWII. Aside from that, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age currently available for the PlayStation 4 (Nintendo Switch version still in development) is currently dominating the second spot of the chart.
