PS4 Exclusive Ratchet and Clank Reaches The Top Of The UK Game Charts

Sony and Insomniac Games' Ratchet & Clank debuts at the top of the UK sales chart for the week ending April 23, according to data supplied by sales monitor Chart-Track. The remake of the first Ratchet & Clank game enjoyed the biggest debut ever for the series in the UK, beating the record held by 2009’s Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time by a factor of three, and it has managed to reach the top of the UK Game Chart despite being a PlayStation 4 exclusive and some fierce competition from Dark Souls 3. 


Ratchet & Clank is one of two brand new releases to reach the top ten, with the second game being Nintendo's Star Fox Zero. The Wii U-exclusive lands at No.6. Last week's top performer, Dark Souls 3, moves down to second place, ahead of EA's Star Wars Battlefront, which is now in its 23rd week on the chart.


You can see the full top ten below. The list does not include digital sales data, and thus should not be considered representative of all UK game sales.

 

  1. Ratchet & Clank
  2. Dark Souls III
  3. Star Wars Battlefront
  4. The Division
  5. UFC 2
  6. Star Zero Zero
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
  8. FIFA 16
  9. Quantum Break
  10. Dirt Rally

 

I'm not surprised that Ratchet and Clank is the number 1 game in the UK right now. The game is just simply amazing and fun to play. Also, Ratchet & Clank reviewed well across the board, and it has also received a high rating on this site as well. Congrats to Sony and Insomniac for making such a great game, very well deserved!

The movie is also a big reason the game is going to do well for right now.

A well deserved #1 for ratchet and Clank. I can only hope we see a continuation of the R&C story through the other games, but re-imagined for the PS4. Is anyone else intrigued by the fact that the most playfully fun game of the generation so far, may be a reboot of a franchise that's been arguably producing the most playfully fun games for both the PS2 and PS3 generations?

BTW the fully upgraded Bouncer is a thing of beauty, and the RYNO is worth the effort, I should be able to fully upgrade that tonight as well. XD

I enjoyed the whole game except the racing part. I cant believe they didnt update that part. Ps2, ps3, now ps4. Bad decision that Inaomniac thinks that part of the gameplay does not require any fixes. Felt like a chore to play.

Sort of, I know what you mean, but I love that the same short cut on one of the races is still there to exploit.

I was thinking about this, if R&C is very successful, it may convince Insomniac to go all in for another. They'd got almost every HD asset they need already, so I can't see why they would have trouble justifying it, assuming people by Ratchet and Clank (which they seem to be doing).

The first game was always a bit simpler and less expansive than the ones that followed. So perhaps if we get another, we'll see more, and perhaps new content in addition to the established story content from the past.

I enjoyed the racing part except getting the trophy that is associated with it. Getting the Faster than a Speeding Amoeboid trophy is just frustrating for me. It took me more than 20 times to beat the 1:35 time in that Gold Cup in Kerwan race! ugh

Well deserved, btw a couple of days ago some Xbox fanboy said he accepted it was a good game but sucked that was released on a console in were it was going to be unappreciated lol

Kudos for "Ratchet & Clank". Wow, and Im surprised seeing on #3 "Star Wars Battlefront". Disney sure is exploiting that gold mine to the max!
