Interesting to see console breakdowns for the debut games. Hoping they'll continue to report that for future games.

Really good sales for Crash, The remakes were always going to benefit more from nostalgia whilst also reducing the novelty somewhat. A non Mario related Platform topping the charts is a nice achievement. Next Gen Spyro next pls. Also A Switch version of Crash seems inevitable.

Would love to know the numbers for Crash Bandicoot 4 in both physical and digital format and hopefully they release it officially for next gen as soon as possible to capitalize and reach maximum sales potential.
