Crash Bandicoot is now the number 1 top paid game

I think that's really a testament to the recent ipod touch Christmas success, as I'm guessing a lot of these new consumers are in the younger age bracket. And since this game has a Mario Cart feel, well, then understandibly it was a hot sell, despite the price remaining $6.

I don't know who'd actually buy Crash. It seems like a decent game at best. If anything, little kids would've bought Rolando...

I actually kinda liked it, although I am growing extremely bored of games controlled by the accelerometer.

I actually played it a lot when it first came out, but now there are much better racing games available.

Christmas is all to blame for Rolando not being a hit success. It is no longer in the Top 50 in the US..

Maybe its popular cos the console game series sold millions of copies and also this app was on the Adverts for iTouch or iPhone, cant remember which.
