Sounds like there must have been a solid PS5 restock.

Interesting results.

The more casual titles tend to sell better on the Switch (Just dance, Minecraft, animal crossing, Mario related games etc).

PS5 games sold when the stock for the console is decent.

And we have another split result in favor of PS consoles with Metro Exodus (77/23).

Ratchet and clank is doing strong numbers for the type of game it is.

If Insomniac release another game on the PS5, it could set sales records for the franchise.

Hot damn! Lots of sales increases this week. That's really impressive for Ratchet though.

Not surprising to see Ratchet increase after people shunned the £70 price tag at launch but 2 days after release it was widely available at £55 which people though was more fair and bought it.

Impressive performance from Ratchet & Clank. This could end up being the best selling game in the series.
