That would be ridiculous considering how massive the install base was.

Sony is a true mastermind selecting what games to remake instead of just remaster like jak and daxter. Now we need crash team racing and the spyro trilogy

They should finally do Legend of Dragoon.

That's like, almost the lifetime sales of the original... pretty impressive!


Nem (on 03 April 2018)

Not according to VGC. It's at 1.14m (for reference PS3 version is at 1.34m).
But, i'm sure it can get close at least.

This game deserves all the sales it can get


MasterThief (on 03 April 2018)

thats not bad for a playstation game. I respect that especially for a remaster and overall with digital probably much better


CGI-Quality (on 03 April 2018)

It's not bad for a remake of game that sold under 1.2m. PlayStation exclusives, on average, sell plenty more.
