Ratchet & Clank PS4 gives the series its first ever no.1 hit

Insomniac Games’ retelling of the original Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4 has debuted at no.1 in on the U.K. All Format Chart.

The dynamic duo not only managed to dethrone previous no.1 Dark Souls III, but also nabbed the best launch week sales of any Ratchet & Clank title to date. It’s also the first game in the franchise to top the charts to boot.

To put things into perspective, this latest addition to the franchise managed to triple the first week sales of 2009’s Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time, which up until now was the best-selling game in terms of launch sales.

Ratchet & Clank is being released to coincide with the launch of the upcoming movie adaptation distributed by Gramercy Pictures, which hits stores on April 29, 2016. The film features voiceovers by the likes of James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Sylvester Stallone and Armin Shimerman.
