Obviously that version will have a lot of downgrades across the board

DarkVoyager216d ago (Edited 216d ago )

I’m fine with a few downgrades having the ability to take the game with me.

Razmiran215d ago

Why is this being downvoted?

StonieWylder215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

@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"

yomfweeee215d ago

Maybe because some people find it unacceptable that the newest generation of consoles took a step back in graphics. Not everyone cares about portability.

PhantomTommy215d ago (Edited 215d ago )

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.

Gaming_1st215d ago (Edited 215d ago )


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.


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.

_-EDMIX-_215d ago

@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.

I think of it as the newest generation of handheld console that took a step forward in graphics.

Doughhead215d ago

I'm fine with the portable version myself. The switch is a portable console

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.

DarkVoyager215d ago

“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.

Razmiran215d ago

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.

StonieWylder215d ago

@Razmiran "I feel as if I sparked a civil war "
My friend, almost the entire site is like this.

BLAKHOODe215d ago

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.

FlyingFoxy215d ago

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.

WeAreLegion214d ago

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.

Akarogg 214d ago


"The switch is even a downgrade to the ps3"

Patently false. If you gonna attack the Switch, at least don't lie

Kribwalker214d ago (Edited 214d ago )

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.

Razmiran214d ago

Unless they do a 60fps mode im willing to bet this will be a low effort port with the same features

xxjabberxx214d ago

I can remote play this on my vita

AmstradAmiga214d ago

Thats great. With remote play do you have to leave the disc in your PS4?

Heelix216d ago

Minor visual downgrades
none of which affect gameplay

The question we should be asking is about the frame rates

SuperSonic91215d ago

Frame rate GREATLY affects gameplay my friend. That is to me the most imlortant aspect of graphics fidelity.

SuperSonic91214d ago (Edited 214d ago )

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.


DwightSchrute01214d ago

The downloads are because you've clearly misread the guys comment and your assuming that the switch version will have a crap frame rate

SuperSonic91214d ago

@ Dwight

Is it not obvious I was talking about game play frame rate in general and not just towards this port?


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.

TallonIV215d ago

Cool can't wait to play on Switch.

Nintentional214d ago

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?

Elda215d ago

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.

Aceman18215d ago

It's part of my backlog for PS4 lol

_-EDMIX-_215d ago

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.

DwightSchrute01214d ago (Edited 214d ago )

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.
