The now-epic Ratchet and Clank franchise has proven to be immensely popular with both critics and gamers alike.
Before Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time launched late last month, the franchise's 8 installments had sold over 25 million copies over the course of most of the decade. And now, if you check out the latest edition of the Full Moon Show podcast (always a good listen), you'll hear Insomniac announce that A Crack in Time is the fastest-selling installment yet. They didn't provide any exact numbers and we have to wait for the NPD results, anyway, but it's still a promising announcement. Remember, October was a very tough month. Dominated by Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2: Among Thieves – another PS3 exclusive – and featuring other quality titles like Brutal Legend , Tekken 6 , and Borderlands , so a game like A Crack in Time definitely had its work cut out for it. But we've learned of a very staunch Ratchet following among the ranks of PlayStation fans; this following has grown consistently over the years and at this point, they'll always reward a new effort.
Just bear in mind that Insomniac has hinted that this latest title might be the last in the stellar series for a while. We know they have to start chugging away on Resistance 3 , for instance, and they've called A Crack in Time the end of a trilogy.
