Ratchet and Clank doesn't break 100K, Sony still happy

Despite being one of Sony's big hitters this fall, Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction didn't hit the 100,000 sales milestone like the series' first three games, having only sold 74,500 in its first two weeks of release in October. However, that hasn't deterred Sony from being pleased with it so far.

"SCEA is very happy with the initial sales numbers of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction," a Sony Computer Entertainment America representative told 1UP. "In a crowded market of mature content, Ratchet is a fun, sophisticated alternative that truly showcases the power of the PS3. Ratchet is the perfect gift for PlayStation fans of all ages and we expect sales to continue to remain strong."

However, as 1UP pointed out, Tools of Destruction did sell better than Ratchet: Deadlocked, the series' latest entry that only managed to sell 55,300 copies when it released in October 2005.
