Never underestimate the power of a classic brought back to life. Such is the case with Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank, a reimagining of the first game that released recently for the PS4 and has debuted in the number 1 spot for video game sales in the UK (according to Gfk Chart-Track). Interestingly enough, this is the first time the series has ever debuted at the top spot.
The PS4 exclusive beat Dark Souls 3 which slipped to second place. The other new entry was Star Fox Zero on the Wii U which debuted at sixth place. Star Wars Battlefront is in third place oddly enough followed by Tom Clancy’s The Division and EA Sports UFC 2.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is still hanging strong in the charts followed by FIFA 16, Quantum Break and Dirt Rally. Expect Ratchet & Clank to have another bumper week or two – Battleborn debuts on May 3rd but it may not be able to put a chink in the platformer’s armour. We’ll find out for ourselves in the coming weeks.
