God of War beats Spider-Man

That Sony exclusives appeal to PC gamers is now a well-established fact and the numbers speak for themselves. However, there is one of the PlayStation video games that seems to be more loved than all the others. Let's talk about God of War: the work of anta Monica debuted last January on Steam and Epic Games Store and still today it turns out to be the game that has been the most successful on the Valve home client, even compared to Marvel's Spider-Man.

The game starring Kratos has in fact reached a peak of over 70,000 players, a number still far from all the other Sony exclusives. For comparison, Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered peaking at "just" 64,000 users. There are obviously reasons that affect this situation and they are particularly identifiable.

After Marvel's Spider-Man, two more Sony games are coming to PC: the first is Uncharted 4, the second, instead, the remake of the first The Last of Us. However, both titles still lack an official release date and therefore we will need a little more patience before finding out when they will debut. The God of War sequel, on the other hand, will arrive on November 9, 2022 but only on PS4 and PS5, at least for now.

Spider-Man Remastered on Track to Become Sony’s Second Biggest Steam Launch

Marvel’s Spider-Man PC release looks to be on track to become Sony’s second biggest Steam launch, if concurrent player count is anything to go by. The game, which launched at $60 on the platform, peaked at 64,893 concurrent players over the weekend and we still have to get through Sunday. Spider-Man Remastered currently holds an “overwhelmingly positive” rating on Steam based on 8,700 user reviews.

Despite being one of the world’s most popular superheroes, Spidey couldn’t quite beat Kratos. As pointed out by Twitter user Benji Sales, God of War peaked at 73,529 concurrent players at launch. Spider-Man did, however, manage to beat Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone, which peaked at 56,557 and 27,450 concurrent players at launch, respectively.

This is a pretty impressive feat considering Spider-Man originally launched nearly four years ago and is listed on Steam at full price. If Sony’s first-party PC launches are any indication, there’s a healthy appetite for PlayStation exclusives on PC where it’s usually unheard of for games to have full price tags attached to them years after they first release.

Despite this success, Sony has no plans to launch first-party games day-and-date on PC. At least not at this point in time. Who knows what the future holds. For now, PC players will soon be able to enjoy yet another hit PlayStation-exclusive when The Last of Us Part 1 launches on the platform.

In other news, a former Konami employee who was tasked with having P.T. delisted has finally spoken out, and God of War Ragnarok leaks have apparently started hitting the internet.
