Crash Bandicoot is raking in all the dough. Well deserved for the best kart racer of all-time.



Thanks to Arta for the screenshot.

With all those players you think they could afford to fix that racist skin they put out there

EDIT: Nevermind, they did! That's fantastic

I assume that’s also only people who have played since the Grand Prix started ?

Plus yeah its only ps4 . Safe to assume it’s much higher

And this is just people who've played it since the Grand Prix started and connected to online. Admittedly, that'll be most, but still.

Looks like the ps4 version is dominating the sales. Sales will be strong on ps4 and Switch this holiday. Myself and the buddies are buying it then.

I think this only counts players who have logged in once the Grand Prix started.

I still find it so interesting how Crash was gone for almost a decade, and these remakes come out and they sell millions. Well deserved too, they're great games, and the new content Beenox has started to add in has also been fantastic (albeit sort of tiring to obtain through Wumpa Coins and Nitro).

Definitely am interested in seeing what they do with both this game and the franchise from here on out.

Man this game is selling like crazy on PS4 as expected. I'm surprised Xbox One is higher than Switch though honestly.

Never was much of a shock, atleast here in the Uk.

People forget just how popular the PlayStation brand is and how integral crash was too that. Like think about it, the playstation 1 outsold the N64 by like 60 Million Units and crash was the mascot for that. To me and many other people, crash is our mario.

But I am shocked at just how big of a reach crash revival has been. People who never talk about games and only play fifa and cod where buying and talking about it, saw so many snapchat stories day 1 of people playing it.

Most likely because

1.) Neither Microsoft or Sony have a kart-racing game of their own (just arcade &/or simulator racers), &

2.) Nintendo has Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, which without the shadow of a doubt, has a ton of more players than all three versions of Crash Team Racing combined.

I wonder what the lifetime figures will be?

I don’t expect it to match astronomical levels like N. Sane but I can see this still selling well regardless.

Mario kart being on Switch should just help other kart racers to sell more as it means there is huge audience for them on the console. Just like Halo used to help FPS games to sell more on Xbox than on other consoles.
Launching close to Super Mario Maker 2 probably didn't help sales either.

Really wonder how well the player base holds

A lot of folks were drawn in by nostalgia for the original, like me, but God damn this game is frustrating

But Crash doesn’t have any appeal anymore?/s


Great to see the game doing good with how much care they obviously put into it.

Been watching it go up the past weeks. Only solidifies my sub-5% standing in the leaderboard :)

Great game, likely on my top 5 of all time (replacing the original).

Going by the recent Reddit thread documenting the leaderboards and challenges, if we were to add up the total number of people who've participated in the Grand Prix on all platforms combined, we would have a grand total of at least 1.4 million people who've played (bought) the game. If we add the number of people across all platforms who either: haven't played since the GP started; who have bought the game but have yet to open it; and those who have never connected online, I think a reasonable conclusion is that the game has sold about 1.5m copies in the space of a month. That sounds pretty good to me.

I'm so far behind in the ranking lol I can't play every day, and when I play it's just less then 2hrs at night, and when I do I suck at it lol so yeah. I can't even afford the special outfits of the girls, so I just focused on getting them separately to make sure I was able to get at least the characters (since I don't know if I'll keep paying for the online membership after this month).
