My mind was so worried, but thanks to the champions of the forum who have shown how little credibility this guy has and how much he's got wrong in the past, my mind is at ease, a toast to those who can keep their heads screwed on and help out the rest of us!

Crash has sold more then 50 million units.
Ratchet and Clank only 25
God of war only 21
Uncharted only 17

In 2010, despite there being no Crash games in years, Crash was voted more popular a series then Halo & Sonic. In terms of sales and popularity Crash wins :smileyhappy:
 


I'm a bit late to this discussion, but I'm going to chime in here anyway.  Proportionately for the console's sales, Uncharted has sold more on PS3 than the Crash tetralogy on PS1.  It's a lot harder to sell 17 million on PS3 (64 million units) than 26 million on PS1(102 million units).  That's also three games compared to four, and Uncharted has still sold over 1% more of the PS3's userbase compared to Crash's 25.4% userbase sales on PS1.

 

And if I wanted to bring up the 2.5 unanimous GotY awards (Since Uncharted 1 lost out ~60/40 to Bioshock) that the series has won, I could make an entire second argument.  Or I could touch the "You're only as big as your last game" adage, which outright kills Crash.  Or that you're comparing an 18 game series to three series that only combined reach slightly over 18.  Or the quality of the latter 25 million Crash sales that came over the course of 14 mediocre or worse games.  But I won't, because that's not the point here.

 

On-topic: BS.  The guy knows nothing, as others have pointed out.

Congrats very well researched. Makes a lot of sense. Still don't think that those 3 characters are iconic though. If i brought up crash sonic mario and the like to anyone on the street they'd know who i was talking about. I doubt everyone in my household even knows who kratos, Ratchet and Drake are. In fact I could say for a fact that my mam won't and that would probably apply to most mothers. This sort of things hard to measure and I doubt either of us will change the others mind but i can be confident that 95% of the western world knows who sonic crash and mario are but only really gamers or people aged between 12 and 30 will have a good chance of knowing ratchet, kratos or drake.

Well on Nintendo I only know who Mario and lungi was. Xbox I only know Master chief and Marcus. Playdtation I know everyone. It all depends what you grew up with, since Nintendo is older more people know those characters because they have been around for longer
IT'S MY WAY OR . . . HELL IT'S MY WAY

Re: NO MORE CHARACTERS?!?!

I can agree that Sonic, Mario et al. are infinitely more well-known, I just wanted to throw that argument against Crash because of what you'd said. Crash is bigger through technicality and Sony's currently-dreadful advertising (I feel that if Sony could advertise Uncharted's overall sales would be higher by at least 50%), I can't deny that. However, as I said in my semi-Devil's advocate comment, Uncharted technically is higher-selling by proportion so it's not necessarily fair.

Also, I always love pointing out how much Mario trumps everyone. 450 million...Crash has nothing on that. **bleep**, nobody has nothing on that.

Back on the topic of the roster, I feel that complaints about how iconic the characters are(n't) in this game is a bad complaint, considering no PS character is truly iconic besides Snake and maybe Crash/Spyro. Most of the others are wash-ups/not popular enough.
