Haha yes, everyone expected Crash Bandicoot to outsell Splatoon 2 in Japan... I am really surprised to see Splatoon 2 outselling Crash in Japan... Never expected this to happen... XD 

Just as surprised as you Nintendo guys were when you saw Crash Bandicoot destroying Splatoon 2 in the UK! Dude you guys completely underestimated Crash Bandicoot, a lot of you didn't even think that it would reach 1M lifetime. And then out of nowhere Crash Bandicoot broke all records and became a huge system seller for PS4. You guys were all shocked by the popularity of Crash Bandicoot and now you try to down talk your completely ridiculous Crash Bandicoot sales predictions. With posts like this one you guys only prove to me how angry and embarrassed you were when Crash Bandicoot destroyed Splatoon 2 in the UK. XD

Btw
UK = 4 countries
Japan = 1 country 

Please show me one post where this is the case. Who doubted that a remake of 3 very nostalgic games at only $ 40 wouldn't sell well? That's quite a nice narrative you've invented there. 


Just take a look at this thread: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=226798

You for example said "[...] It's a bunch of PS1 games, they really show their age. All the levels are pretty much straight narrow path ways.. " LOL

That's a comment about quality, not sales. I still stand by what I said. Take away the nostalgia and these games wouldn't have sold well at all. 

You conveniently left out the part where I said 3 million units would be above expectations. Has this game sold over 3 million units yet?

Ps: I hope you don't actually think this will sell 20 million copies.

Sure you could say titles like pokemon or Mario wouldn't sell nearly as much without nostalgia aswell. Big deal, fact is they sell and crash is doing N'sanely good :)

Those franchises still get new releases, Crash N'sane trilogy is a remake. If a brand new Crash Bandicoot manages to sell 10 million copies on the PS4 I will be very surprised. 

Brand new games can't depend on just nostalgia... Remakes or remasters can.

Of naughty dog made a new crash it would sell well.  You are forgetting that crash unlike Mario and pokemon etc doesn't have a quality team making new games.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702
