IGEA: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy scores at #1 again in Australia, but slots at #2 in New Zealand (Week 28)


Looks like we’ve got an update on how Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is performing so far in Australia and New Zealand according to IGEA after the major Multiplatform release for Week 28. We will be splitting them based on the base game and platform parity from both countries. This means that the charts will differ based on the sections.

Australia: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the #1 spot overall in the charts, while the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch took the #1 spot, PlayStation 4 release from last year stays at #9 and the PC release unfortunately is nowhere to be seen.

New Zealand: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy took the #2 spot behind FIFA 18 overall in the charts, while the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch took the #1 spot, PlayStation 4 release from last year is unfortunately absent from this list and the PC is the same story as before in the top 10 charts list.

So, this is all good news for those in Australia and New Zealand, because it means that Crash Bandicoot with the N. Sane Trilogy being out already on the PS4 a whole year ago, still got brand power to sell and get buzz around the region with the continued streak, especially for those skeptical like me.

[LINKED] Vicarious Visions Dev Diaries: Matt Bishop (Senior Engineer)


TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF.

I’ve been in the industry for nearly 20 years now! Nearly 5 of those years have been spent at Vicarious Visions, and I’ve been with Activision for longer. My first big shipped title at VV was Skylanders Superchargers. I’m a graphics engineer by training, and am now a senior engineer.

WHAT DID YOU WORK ON IN REGARDS TO THE CRASH BANDICOOT N. SANE TRILOGY?

I was the lead engineer on the Crash Bandicoot multi-platform release this year. Specifically, most of my work focused on the Xbox One port, HDR for the PS4, and managing the other engineers working on the project across both the Xbox and PS4 platforms.
