Nsane numbers. Can we not get a current patch for the trilogy and CTR 60fps and/or 4K? And might as well release a PC port for NF while you're at it, make it happen!

Nice profile pic

I’m waiting for a dead or alive article to pop up myself

It was the other day I was thinking of picking up crash team racing because I like kart racers like Mario kart and Team Sonic Racing, but I was shocked to find out that Crash team racing is still 30 fps.

Loved Crash 4, that's more than I thought, I had a feeling that releasing at full price, right before current systems was a bad move, so 5 million is pretty good. I shudder to think how poor Rumble sold though.

Spyro apparently at 10 million, would be interesting seeing the platform split for these.

Oh look at that, and people were trying to say it was a flop.

We need more 3D platformers

Sony should bring Jak and Daxter back, Ubisoft with Rayman 4 and maybe Microsoft can work something out with Playtonic to do Banjo-Kazooie since most of the ex Rare members are there.

neutralgamer199291d ago

Jak and Dexter along with sly. I would love even remakes man since Sony now a days don’t want to take chances of smaller single player games it seems

@fox: “Oh look at that, and people were trying to say it was a flop.”
Correct me if I’m wrong this was released in 2020 for all major platforms except for mobile as far as I can remember and PC a year later, and only sold 5 millions copies in 4 years?
Yes I would consider it a flop I seen games on PlayStation and Xbox sale 2 millions in a year and be called a flop.

Asplundh91d ago

It doesn't matter how many platforms it's on or how long it took to get there, 5 million sales is a great number period.

1Victor90d ago

So where’s crash 5 ?
It’s been 4 years and nothing and it’ll be another 6+ if lucky.
I love the franchise and was one of the few ones that purchased 4 but I didn’t like it, it felt empty and no fun.
Remember activision/ Microsoft is all about the money if a franchise don’t perform it gets shelved no matter what we think or want.

@Asplundh,Victor isn't wrong, though.
5 million *is* a great number. But it took awhile to get there...And it was on PS4,XB1,PS5,XBX,PC and Switch. Movies and music will often gauge the commercial success of their respective products by "first week" sales and usually the first two weeks of a theatrical run. Shawshank Redemption, widely considered one of the best movies of all time earned only 16 million during it's theatrical run, against a 25 million dollar budget.

Most AAA games need to sell roughly 1.5 - 2 million copies to just break even these days. I tried to look up what this game's budget was, and couldn't find much.

I should state that I adore platformers. Love these games, love Jak and Daxter, Love the Sly games etc...But this wasn't exactly vindication for the sub-genre. I hope they were able to turn a profit and I wish more of these games were made.

Or go back a bit further...

An updated Commander Keen, Jill of the Jungle, Crystal Caves, Bio Menace, or Jazz Jackrabbit would be pretty cool.

Skuletor90d ago

Hocus Pocus, Halloween Harry, Monster Bash, Xargon OG Duke Nukems
Remember when Bethesda announced a new Commander Keen for mobile at E3 2019 with an animated trailer?

Jill of the Jungle being from Epic Games is funny to me.

ocelot0790d ago

Is flop the word of the month or something. Every time I come here lately all I seem to read is this games a flop that games a flop your a flop I have a floppy flipity flipity flop.

I don't keep up with final fantasy but apparently one of the new ones it's a flop for selling 2+ million in a few months on a single platform.

Now crash is a flop? Yes it releases on all platforms but in this day and age 4 million in 4 years seems fine by me.

"Congratulations Microsoft"
😂

CrashMania90d ago

Yeah, very low quality bait when Xbox probably accounted for 10% or less of those sales.

Inverno91d ago

Platformers never died out, THQ just flooded the market with licensed crap and the industry shifted to copying COD cause gaming was "maturing".

Profchaos91d ago

Exactly gamers grew up mature games took off but many players who grew up on the nes, she's even Mario 64 are having kids and introducing them to platformers again so I can see a renewed interest in the genre.

andy8591d ago

Platinum for this killed me. Ended up quitting it 🤣 one of my only failures
