It's the second Insomniac-developed game to claim the top spot this year
Not surprising, brilliant game, and the review scores prove so.
Guess people are willing to pay $70 well solves that debate.
Willing to pay $70 for a quality product.
For premium products yah, not for some half assed MT filled stuff though.
The quality of this game and genre is top notch
It's the UK. We use GBP here so it's £70 and yes when the product is a quality one I'll happily pay it
Oh yes, i paid €79.99 for it here in Italy ^^'' but when it's a game that really entertains me, i pay that without problems. Is it a lot? Oh yes, never said the opposite. But i don't buy €80 games every day, just the ones i think they deserve to be bought.
I'm not too bothered by the higher priced games and think people are really overdoing the crying. BUT what Paleblood said is the key. I don't care when it's a quality product. I even paid for the deluxe upgrade for the disc version lol. I'd do it again, games amazing so far
@zsquaresoff For a quality game? YES!
I picked it up today digitally. Will start play tomorrow!
You're in for a treat, enjoy it;)
Ratched and Clank at #1 and Spider Man MM at #5 thats very amazing. I love when games do the talking by themselves. No PR scripts needed. Also interesting that only Nintendo and Sony exclusive games are in the top 10... Games that are not on a subscription service or being released on PC.
And this is just the beginning, PlayStation just revving up the engines.
Of course. The exclusive is a gem.
Amazing game. Really impressed with the work from Insomniack. Whats Next for them?
I wonder … maybe they’ll start a campaign educating their fans how to spell their name … 👀
It deserves to. On a technical level it's amazing. It doesn't hurt that the game itself is pretty decent too 👍
Deservedly so it's amazing, certainly better than anything shown at E3.
Actually, lol, after E3 so far I'm looking back at current games and my back catalog a lot more kindly. Hopefully we will get better stuff with gameplay samples and less games as a service going forward. I easily agree with your comment thus far. Only game I'm super hyped for is Elden Ring.
Well, i'm playing it in these evenings and i like it a lot. I really needed another R&C game, i'm having a lot of fun :D
I'm on the 6th planet, and this game is incredible in every way. Deserves every sale it gets.
What are the numbers? Saying it was "number 1" this week means absolutely nothing. Don't be suckered into marketing hype. Give me worldwide hard numbers sold.
Sales numbers are too vulnerable of detail for companies now unless you're breaking records. That's why we see MUAs and the like until a quarterly sales report. While I get that a summer game release isn't going to sell as much as your Holiday Release game, it's at least good to see that the game breaks out ahead of the usually more constant big games that tend to fill the charts (FIFA being the prime example). I think, without seeing the numbers, a game like R&C being #1 in the first two weeks is a solid sign of good sales. Especially at retail when the obvious focus is on digital sales on PS4/PS5 more so than the Switch.
What else came out this week? What was it competing against? Saying it was “Number 1” this week, means nothing to me, without any context. I want numbers, physical and digital sales, not shipped numbers.
Lol why do u care so much about the sales numbers, its a ps5 exclusives so theres only a limited amount of those out there anyway. It will easily be the second best selling ps5 title to date, onky behind SP:MM. Either way the game is bloody amazing graphically, game play wise its just next level. My game of the year at this point in time, couldnt care less if i was the only person who bought it. Just sounds like ur trying to find something bad cause theres nothing bad at all about the game lol
Happily paid for a game I get to keep and isn't full of monetization.
I actually saw it for £65 at cex and was laughing to myself and at the shop keeper 🤣🤣 no way in hell will i ever pay 65 for a game, i don't care if i have to wait 1 year to play my favourite Games! Patience is a Virtue.
