Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales spins another PlayStation PC hit

By Sean Lawson,

PlayStation on PC has proven to be an absolute smash hit, with many games seeing a surge in players and has even seen older games re-enter the charts and Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales proves why!

Update: Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales has finally launched onto PC and fans of the Marvel Gaming Universe are finally getting to experience the breathtaking extension to Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered. Judging from the numbers, it would seem both Uncharted and Sackboy can't compete with PS5 powerhouse Spider-Man.

Uncharted Legacy of Thieves and Sackboy A Big Adventure fall short behind Spider-Man

Spotted by Push Square, Miles Morales has managed to reach a height of 13,539 concurrent players in just a few short days, beating out Uncharted Legacy of Thieves that has amassed highs of 10,851 and Sackboy A Big Adventure which has only reached highs of 610 concurrent players — despite the game making it onto our best co-op games list. Whatever way you look at it, this is good news for both Sony and Insomniac Games, as the newest title in the Spider-Man series has done vastly better than both of the most recent PlayStation Studio additions.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles MoralesMarvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales is breaking Sony's recent PC curse!

Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales is currently the tenth best-selling game on Steam, so the number of concurrent players may continue to rise over the coming weeks. Looking at Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered and its concurrent highest players of 66,436, it would be no surprise to anyone if Miles Morales was able to match that — or even surpass it. The TrueTrophies news team is also excited to see how The Last of Us Part 1 ranks when it finally releases onto PC, as well as the all but announced PC release of Returnal that should hopefully be coming soon.

What do you make of all this? Happy to see Miles Morales getting some more love? Will you be purchasing this PC version of the game or will you be sticking to PS5 and PS4? Think that these Spider-Man games deserved spots on our best PS4 games and best PS5 games lists? Sound off in the comments below!

Original Story: Sackboy: A Big Adventure knocks Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection off the top spot — in a negative way — for the lowest player count from a PlayStation title on PC. Sackboy, the iconic mascot from the LittleBigPlanet series doesn't appear to be receiving the love that he all so deserves from PC players. As of 31st October 2022, Sackboy A Big Adventure sits with the highest concurrent player base of 610,, making Uncharted's 10,851 appear far less brutal in retrospect. This amazing PS5 co-op game is just not getting the flowers it deserves.

Sackboy has abysmal numbers on PC, earning the lowest player count of a PlayStation title so far.Sackboy has abysmal numbers on PC, earning the lowest player count of a PlayStation title so far.

Sackboy flounders while God of War soars

Spotted by PushSqaure, it's a shocking sight to see the Sackboy numbers regardless on if the Sackboy series isn't as popular as the God of War series. The Little Big Planet franchise is still well-known and well-regarded. While the reason for Sackboy being so unpopular is unknown, it could be partly due to Sony's problems with PlayStation Plus on PC, its absolute lack of any marketing for the game on the platform, or that people just really aren't that fussed by this adorable little guy — which makes us very sad.

Looking at the ranking of the six games that PlayStation have currently released on PC, you will immediately see Sackboy's gulf in numeric value. While concurrent players don't relate to active players, the small number is mighty alarming, no matter how many active players there are behind the scenes.

Sackboy: A Big AdventureHow can you not play this amazing PS5 game?

We know that PlayStation on PC can be a success, just look at some of the above numbers for reference. Yet, despite Sackboy making it onto our best co-op games list, PC players just aren't bothered about this incredible PS5 and PS4 title. We know Returnal is all but confirmed to be coming to PC at this point, we just hope that it sees far greater numbers than poor old Sackboy's here.

What do you make of the numbers? Think this is a bad sign for PlayStation games going forward? Or is Sackboy A Big Adventure just a one-off miss? Sound off in the comments down below!
