Glad it got a boost of 30k. However, considering the games quality, I feel like it should be more. This is my first Ratchet and Clank and I want to see sony support more of their older IPS on the Playstation 4 ,it's the only Playstation I have. I think this probably sold 1.6 million including digital sales at LEAST. So it's still pretty ok.

It was bundled and had discounts on the standalone SKU during Black Friday week, but even with that in mind I was really surprised by how high it was. That's what the data shows though, so in absence of any official statements or additional data I decided to roll with it.

@Radek: the game will hit 2 million at retail LT, and then we have the DL versions. For a 40$ remake thats a good performance, especially after taking into account the small development costs and the quality degradation the series had before this one.

Now time to start making bets in when it will hit 2 million. :P I'm hoping (though could easily be wrong) that it can hit 2 million before next year. There is still 4 months to go, 2 of which will give it a pretty decent boost if not bundled.

3Rd week in a row it increased its sales. It's going to have a pretty total come the 1St of January. should easily sell 2m retail in it's first 12 months. And as reported digital is very high. This ended up smashing people's expectations.

~6 weeks to hit a million retail? And the reported insane digital ratio makes sense. It was great value to download. $35 I believe? I chose that option and I'd not be surprised if 30% also did. This title will hit 2m for sure and will probably go a good margin over that. Incredible revamp for the series.

@Teeqoz makes sense at least for EU where it's cheaper 5 than at retail. And it's even right next to U4 on the store bestsellers list despite being out longer which is kinda crazy. Goes in hand with it being #1 on EU PS store for April beating DS3, unlike NA.

Ratchet & Clank was finished and ready to release in 2015. The game was only delayed due to finding a distributor for the movie, so that both products could release around the same time. Insomniac did some extra polishing for half a year or so. I doubt that this process was anything pricy, but just increased the overal quality of this amazing debut on PS4.

According to James Stevenson, the Community Manager, this mainline Ratchet & Clank title even had a smaller budget than usual. Insomniac Games and Rainmaker had a really close collaboration since the very beginning of both projects. As a matter of fact, they provided various assets and character models to each other, which definately helped save some costs.

Lets not forget that the game has probably a better chance to sell more units at its attractive point of just 40$/40 (or even lower 35 on the PlayStation Store!) rather than at full price. People who actually played this gorgeous reimagining might see it as a steal. Word of mouth and the great critical reception will help to boost further sales.

Im not so confident about the movie boosting some serious sales for the game, though. While Zekkyou is right about the $20m being a really low budget for such an animated movie in general, it will most likely bomb at the end, based on the current estimates at box office. Even though the movie is still to be released in several countries axross the globe in June. So, we have to wait and see.

Add in another fact that this has reported to be the fastest selling entry in the series so far. Seriously, all things considerd, the game will be really fine in terms of total sales, returning more than enough profit to ensure more installments. Up to this point, its crazy to think otherwise.

I can see this game reaches 2m at the end of 2016, give or take digital numbers. =)

@spacedelete Long post a-hoy.

Considering the quality of the final product, i think 2 years is reasonable. Doubly so considering how much Insomniac (a fairly average sized developer) have released recently. In just 3 years they've put out Fuse, R&C:ITN, Sunset Overdrive, R&C PS4, and 4 smaller titles (another next month), and were involved in the making of the film. R&C PS4 was clearly not getting their undivided attention during its development, lol.

I never claimed it was guaranteed to have good legs. In-fact my post literally started with "While it's true that we'll have to wait and see how it does in the long run--". I'm simply pointing out that the game's current sales, relative to past entries, are great. While it's certainly possible it could go on to be a sales disappointment in the future, it's pretty silly to try question its current successes on the basis of an assumed future.

You're right that the film had been somewhat of a failure, but it was neither expensive ($20m is tiny for a feature-length animated film, and while it has done very poorly, in the long-run it should just about break even on a budget that small), nor does it change the fact that the game has had a great launch. While i do think (relative its launch) the new R&C will have weaker legs than past entries, selling about the same number of physical copies in your first 2 weeks as the previous 5 games combined certainly constitutes a "good launch" in my books :D And that, ultimately, is what R&C is predominantly being congratulated for right now.

On a side note, in what world is ACiT's 1.87 million "just barley a million"? :p

Zekkyou over tow to three years is a long development for essentially a remake of the first game as well as the fact that Ratchet movie wasn't cheap and that bombed in reviews and the box office.

also Ratchet games aren't guaranteed to have legs. Ratchet a crack in time just barely sold a million and that was probably discounted very quickly. either way people on the internet getting ahead of themselves calling it a success as games very rarely have legs this gen unless its something like COD or a sports game.

Zekkyou posted 06/05/2016, 12:05
@spacedelete While it's true that we'll have to wait and see how it does in the long run (and we don't yet know how accurately VGC are tracking it), for a series known for its legs, selling 600k~ in 2 weeks (not including digital), even at $40, is excellent. For reference, the last major R&C entry sold 150k in the same time period. It's no Call of Duty, but it's a big success for what it is. I'd be very surprised if it doesn't get a sequel, which is ultimately all us R&C fans care about :D

On a side note, i don't know why you'd assume it had a "very long development". All we know is they announced it in June 2014, and then delayed it a year ago so they could release it with the film. If i also had to make an assumption, i'd guess R&C spent about 2 years as the primary focus of its team. That's would be pretty standard for a core R&C title, post-PS2.

It'll be interesting to see what Sony's approach will be for the next Ratchet & Clank. I do feel it would be beneficial to stick with the budget release pricing, but I also feel that the next game should have a bigger budget and be akin to Tools of Destruction & A Crack In Time.

It's just great to see the franchise doing so well. 15 years old next year aswell. Time flies.
