Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was recently announced for the Nintendo Switch. The game will be released on a variety of different platforms now including the Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch after launching as a PS4 Console Exclusive last year.
Obviously that version will have a lot of downgrades across the board
I’m fine with a few downgrades having the ability to take the game with me.
Why is this being downvoted?
@Razmiran because for some reason people here hate the frase: " take the game with me" or "at least it's portable" because people's preference is nothing to "muh 4k TV"
Maybe because some people find it unacceptable that the newest generation of consoles took a step back in graphics. Not everyone cares about portability.
Nah man, look at those downvotes, these people know that you're lying and you're actually not fine with a few downgrades, just admit it already. if they can get this to a locked 30fps, then it's gonna be the ultimate version for me regardless of any visual downgrades. Those time trial modes were insane fun on the PS4 and they're literally perfect for quick little sessions on the go. Get it to 30fps and it'll be great.
@yomfweeee " no one cares about portability" The skyrocketing sales that doesn't seem to stop says otherwise.
@DarkVoyager Where did you read that it has a few downgrades while being portable and not docked? Cause the article doesn't say. What if it's while it's docked then gets a few more downgrades while portable. Look this game is not some graphic powerhouse. The switch should be able to run this game with ease. But more then likely it is going to suffer downgrades and frame rate problems not only portable, but more then likely docked too. @Razmiran It's being downvoted, cause obviously he didn't read the article and went solely by the title.
"Why is this being downvoted?" because people who have a lot of time playing games "IN THEIR HOUSE" don't know how privileged they are. and they are so selfish they don't want people who are seldomly at home to experience playing great games.
@Raz there's a possibility it's being down voted simply because you could also take it on the go with PC if you consider laptop. I mean people are allowed to disagree with any statement on here to be honest I'm not really sure why people get bent out of shape when someone disagrees. who cares? You guys seriously telling me no one's allowed to disagree with you? Seriously buddy come on you guys literally need to just grow up and stop acting like immature children. If someone disagrees with me you're not going to see me wasting time trying to ask questions regarding the downvotes they are allowed to have a different opinion than me. I don't know maybe when some of you guys grow up you'll understand that the world doesn't revolve around you guys I just think these are stupid reasons to complain you're basically mad someone shares a different view than you.
"Maybe because some people find it unacceptable that the newest generation of consoles took a step back in graphics. Not everyone cares about portability." ????? WHAAT LOL I think of it as the newest generation of handheld console that took a step forward in graphics.
I'm fine with the portable version myself. The switch is a portable console
"Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Nintendo Switch vs. PS4 Shows Downgraded Lighting" The switch is a 9th gen console and it's a massive downgrade from a ps4 which is a 8th gen console. The switch is even a downgrade to the ps3 so expect all their games to be of lower quality.
“Maybe because some people find it unacceptable that the newest generation of consoles took a step back in graphics. Not everyone cares about portability.“ Unacceptable? Lol Nintendo Switch is a portable console. I’m pretty sure there’s no way they’d be able to take a step forward on graphics at this moment. If you all you care about is graphics just get the game on PS4 Pro or soon Xbox One X. Simple as that.
I feel as if I sparked a civil war I dont know why everyone is so mad about downgrades on the switch, play it on another plataform if you want higher graphical fidelity. I doubt that the success of the switch will steer the whole market to a hybrid console model.
@Razmiran "I feel as if I sparked a civil war " My friend, almost the entire site is like this.
If I'm on the go, I don't usually have time for video games. Besides that, I have my phone and can play a ton of games on it. I guess that's why I never understood the popularity of the Switch beyond new Mario games.
It's ridiculous what some people complain about, i could have bought a 4k monitor for my PC, but i went 2560 x 1440 165hz Gsync instead for the much smoother performance. It's all about choices. Switch does decently for a portable machine you can play anywhere, of course it's gonna have a some downgrades in visuals.
I mean, Crash 1-3 have been portable since the PSP, Xperia Play, and Vita have existed. Not to mention any phone can run the PSX emulator now.
@JaguarEvolved "The switch is even a downgrade to the ps3" Patently false. If you gonna attack the Switch, at least don't lie
the differences aren’t that huge between them. obviously the switch version is downgraded, but that’s to be expected with a less powerful model. I’m interested in seeing the OneX Vs PS4PRO comparison. I wonder if the differences will be simmilar scale to the ps4/Switch comparison or will their be parity across them.
Unless they do a 60fps mode im willing to bet this will be a low effort port with the same features
I can remote play this on my vita
Thats great. With remote play do you have to leave the disc in your PS4?
Agreed. This is such a "water is wet" article.
Not even surprised
Minor visual downgrades none of which affect gameplay The question we should be asking is about the frame rates
Frame rate GREATLY affects gameplay my friend. That is to me the most imlortant aspect of graphics fidelity.
So the downvoters wanna play Crash Bandicoot with inconsistent messy or low frame rate on the Switch, eh? I wanna see them successfully clear that bridge level. LoL!
The downloads are because you've clearly misread the guys comment and your assuming that the switch version will have a crap frame rate
@ Dwight Is it not obvious I was talking about game play frame rate in general and not just towards this port? OT This game requires precision controls and timing and frame rate will be very important to this game. Also this game is designed to be harder than Mario games. This is no casual kiddie game.
Cool can't wait to play on Switch.
Exactly. And what will be so damn hilarious is I bet Crash will sell better on the Switch compared to Ps4. What will these drones say then?
Still haven't bought this for the PS4,it may eventually come to PS+.I'm quite sure Switch owners don't care about the downgrade knowing they can play the game on the go.
It's part of my backlog for PS4 lol
Yeah I don't think they're going to care I mean you're talking about an install base that is dealt with multiple generations of having the worst version of many games so I'm not sure they're going to care about a visual downgrade or less features or frame rate or anything like that.
Yh an install base that will always pick better gameplay, fun and challenging games over something that just looks pretty with no substance and little interaction for amateur gamers. So yh getting to play crash bandicoot with a proper controller will be great, can't wait.
Yes yes yes freaking new flash the underpowered Switch has a downgraded game... can we please move on from these stories? Like are we going to see one for every damn game that's ported to the Switch?
You should take the time not to comment on articles about Switch seems like you're a hater.
I'll do whatever I want and sure, I'd rather play things on the PS4 and Xbox One over the Switch any day... so I guess that makes me a hater.
If they want to call this a Home console they're going to have to deal with all the scrutiny that comes with being compared to other Home consoles. I don't think it makes sense to try to want the attention of having it called the Home console yet not wanting any of the scrutiny of it being the weakest under the Geist of it being portable despite also trying to use Home console as a way to put it in the conversation of other systems, I mean either the damn thing is a Home console or it's not ,I don't understand why this community wants it both ways to argue a narrative. So if it's a portable which by default means it's going to be limited by what it could do graphically then clearly it needs to fit the category of portable and people need to stop trying to use the term Home console to try to force it with the other systems yet get mad when people start to bring up its inferiority. Because I think it's a little hilarious that I've seen the term portability being thrown around as soon as these downgrade articles come up ie " well it's okay because I could play it on the go" 🤔🤔🤔 So I don't know maybe that act of it being portable also means these articles could stop if that community clearly understands that Portables are different than home consoles. So I say if people can't take the criticism maybe they should stop putting it in the category of other systems clearly it is not. Trust me you didn't see this crap with PSP versus PlayStation 3 or 3 DS versus PlayStation 3 or 360 or anything like that.
"If they want to call this a Home console they're going to have to deal with all the scrutiny that comes with being compared to other Home consoles. " Oh no!!, please don't compare us Switch owners to other consoles!! As if we give a sh*t lmao!
PS4 Xbox One hook up to a tv just like Switch there for it make Switch a console thats played at home or on the go its that simple I don't know whats so hard to comprehend.
So by this logic on display a Lamborghini Aventador should always be compared to a Honda Civic...I mean both are cars right? Or do you think that one will always clearly have an overall advantage that shouldn't have to be pointed out constantly? No one is arguing that the Switch has lower specs, no matter how many times you keep repeating it, over and over again. It's known, everyone has accepted this fact. The issue is why an article that states the obvious? Especially when it's even minor like lighting. "Trust me you didn't see this crap with PSP versus PlayStation 3 or 3 DS versus PlayStation 3 or 360 or anything like that." Because the PSP and 3DS were never this close in visuals to their console counterparts at that time. I think if lighting and maybe some lower framerates for any multiplat game on Switch is the only sacrifice then that's pretty damn good imo.
I mean if hes a backer to Playstation and Xbox he shouldn't be on a Nintendo article its not hard to understand at all my comment wasn't directed towards you to being a backer it was directed to CrimsonWing69. I've been hit with trolling on here by cl1983 for leaving a comment nothing hateful or anything and if I got hit with it CrimsonWing69 should get hit with it too he's trolling.
Lmfao then why the hell are you commenting on the article if you're an Xbox and PS4 backer stay off Switch articles its that simple. And here's a fact for you you can't do whatever you want on here if I get hit with trolling for comments I made by someone named cl1983 they should take notice and hit you with it also.
that's nice, I don't know what you mean by PlayStation 4 and Xbox One backer as I still plan to buy a Nintendo switch in fact lots of people who own the Nintendo switch have already made this point. I'm not sure why people seem to think that anybody that has of view that's different than theirs it's instantly trolling. buddy, I completely understand that this is a portable device not actually to be compared to PlayStation 4 and I'm still going to buy it no different than I bought the previous Nintendo Portables. So I guess there goes that a narrative..
You shouldn't have to be a fanboy to have an opinion though
Wow, slightly different lighting...real good reason to get butthurt and throw a fit.
I know and its coming from someone that only buys PS4 and Xbox consoles like big deal the game is still going to sell very well.
Exactly it's getting so repetitive now, people just repeating the same crap in every article. Jeez give it a break.
It’s really going to be interesting when they show the PC/ONE X versions against the PS4. Not sure why anyone would expect the Switch version to be on par.
Everyone in the downvote brigade seems to forget that not even the PS4 could pull off 60fps even though the pre-release trailers were rendered that way. So 30fps on the Switch with downgrades? These people must be mad to be so alarmed.
Let’s constantly compare how the PS4 is graphically inferior to PC, cuz that’s what REAL gamers do!! 🙄
Comparisons will occur naturally. If you let them bother you then that’s your on fault.
The point is that gaming should be about gameplay content, not visuals. Let alone shading differences. It’s nit picky. Somehow gaming has become more about politics, yea it’s bothersome that people want to bitch about things they wouldn’t notice unless they took the time to point it out. If you want to make it about visuals, you’re rooting for the wrong platform and you’re also in the wrong forum.
"The point is that gaming should be about gameplay content, not visuals." If people took that advice the comment sections would be a ghost town. Most of this sites articles and comments hinge on what game looks better on what platform. For the record apparently its PC > X > Pro > Switch > Atari 2600. But regardless of the fanboying here, Switch's success has proven power isn't the deciding factor in gaming.
Oh noes downgraded lighting!
Wow the switch cant even keep up with crash? :| What are they doing for Smash?
To the disagrees Nintendo is awesome Nintendo sucks
People like Kumakai laughing at the Switch not handling this "old game" yet the PS4 version runs at 30fps with drops LOL
Would actually be happy if the game was further visually downgraded and instead runs at 60fps.
How is this news? is any game on the switch that didnt had downgrades when compared to the PS4 or Xbox One. The news here was if it didn!!!
Yh and is any game on the ps4 or xbox one that don't have downgrades when compared to the pc.
PC? we are talking about consoles. PC is another world. There isnt one PC, there are million of diferent PC´s.
Article is not worthy of the click. What exactly are they trying to prove with that headline. Of course it is downgraded. What else were you expecting?
Didn't get it for ps4, and I probably won't get it for the switch. Played crash some as a kid, but I was never that into it.
Damn the game didn't even release on the switch, yet you guys already jumping to conclusions.
