Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has reached the dizzying heights of the UK Games Charts and has landed firmly in the Number One position.
Gamesindustry.biz reports that Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the second biggest PS5 title so far (for physical boxed sales) behind Spider-Man: Miles Morales. According to gamesindustry.biz, Ratchet & Clank’s latest outing also sold more than three times that of Returnal.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is also the second biggest launch of a Ratchet & Clank game ever. Just behind 2016’s Ratchet & Clank, which was a PS4 exclusive.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is the second biggest UK launch for a Ratchet & Clank of all time. It's behind the 2016 PS4 remake, which was half the price and on a console with a bigger install base. But well ahead of PS3's 'A Crack In Time' (thanks GfK) pic.twitter.com/0sGUs5RwT4
