Spider-Man was released back on September 7th exclusively for the PS4, the title took off in the form of sales which has now pushed it to new heights resulting in the domination of a very popular Ubisoft title. To give a good comparison, Far Cry 5 was released 6 months ago and also debuted to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The game has also been on sale and has had a plethora of time to get out into gamers hands, yet it still cannot compete against the popularity of Spider-Man.

According to Games Industry biz, "The arrival of FIFA means that Spider-Man drops to No.2 for the week. Sony's game is now the second best-selling game of the year as it has overtaken Far Cry 5 in just four weeks. It's an impressive achievement for the PS4 title, as it is only available on one platform (admittedly, the UK's most popular console)." Both Far Cry 5 and Spider-Man have been released, Far Cry 5 is available on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Spider-Man is exclusively available on the PS4.
