The performance Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction may not be as historically high as its Playstation 2 prequels, but publisher Sony isn’t complaining.

Despite worries that Insomniac’s Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction was underselling it’s predecessors, Sony has claimed that the 74,500 units sold during the first two weeks were quite satisfactory. Additionally, a first-month comparison chart comprised by 1Up of the sales of each game in the series shows that Tools of Destruction outsold its action-oriented sibling Ratchet: Deadlocked by 19,200 units. Tools of Destruction joins Warhawk and Lair in the list of lead first-party titles on Playstation 3 to have not broken the 100,000 mark during its release month.

A Sony Computer Entertainment America representative told 1Up, “SCEA is very happy with the initial sales numbers of Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. 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.”
