@dark, Competition is never an excuse.
They can choose to release whenever, MS
chose to release in october. The SO
bundle is still available in GAME here
in UK, I know it continued to be on sale
all throughout christmas in USA. R&C has
been heavily milked for one generation,
but thing with R&C it wasnt high but it
was consistent, approx 1 millionish was
easy for each game.

@fireburn Insomniac's games don't sell
alot just look at the Ratchet and Clank
series there was no heavily backing from
what I know and please people are
forgetting the bundle sold out one week
and Microsoft said there will be no more
of it, oh did you forget about SO
releasing right where games like
COD,Assassin's Creed, etc were right
around the corner? If there were a game
that sold less with no competition just
look at the Order.

@floatingwaffled, it isnt bad but
certainly not good. A new, original AAA
IP heavily backed by the console
manufacture and heavily marketed with
very little competition and even a
limited edition bundle, and 760k after
12ish weeks

@SlayerRondo You act like this is a bad
debut for this game.

The fan-base for Insomniac and insomniac
style games is primarily on the PS4
which itself has outsold the Xbox One
over 5 to 3.

Whatever deal Insomniac
had with Microsoft I hope it was worth
this debut on next gen consoles.
