Can somebody on Xbox Series X/S help me?

I had the xbox one version on my xbox one x, upgraded to Series X at christmas and put away my One X.

Basically microsoft's smart delivery has screwed me out of my save file.

You gotta start the One version to upload your save, but now that it's trying to update to the SX version, it won't boot the One version now. Only way to boot it is to kill the internet, but then save upload won't work. Not that it matters, my save file from Xbox One is gone because the Xbox just auto-syncs when you boot a game up and I hadn't booted crash 4 since upgrading.

In short, with Smart Delivery it's impossible to boot the Xbox One version, and even if I could, not being able to boot while connected to Xbox Live means that I never was able to pull the Xbox One save anyway to my SX.

I fucking hate the entire Xbox experience, everything is so convoluted under the guise of being "Easy"
What if you start the game offline and then reconnect to the internet once it has loaded up and bypassed the save syncing ability?

I kind of chuckled at your post 'cause while I was updating my PS4 version of the game(in order to upload the old save) and waiting for the dreaded "copying files", all I had in mind was "damn, XBox players have it easy with their automated cloud saves".

It kicks you out of the game lol. That was the first thing I tried.

I rinsed this game last year on Pro. Downloaded the Ps5 version and played a couple of levels, but there’s not really much here to justify the replay. Cool upgrade if you haven’t completed it yet though.

Is your PS4 one the free version that is in the PS + collection? If so they may be doing like what theyre doing with FFVII Remake and not giving you the upgrade to the PS5 version for free if you didn't purchase the PS4 version

The free version is the N.Sane trilogy not 4. Dibils2k go to the store, search for the game and it will have the free upgrade option available.

Question to those that have already played this. How hard is this game compared to Crash 1? I don't mind a challenge, but nothing too frustrating!

It's pretty tough, especially if you are going to try collect 100% of everything. The levels get REALLY tough in the later part. I loved it.

Ok thanks. I don't know if I want to put myself through that.
It gets really frustrating but you can set it to never lose lives and just keep playing through the levels. I love the way it controls so it was very enjoyable for me, even when the frustration levels were really high!

Strongly considering buying the ps5 version since it's on sale on PSN and haven't played the game yet on last gen consoles.

Known bug for the digital version of the game (EU) if you want to upgrade. Got the same problem and many others do too. Guess we'll have to wait till it's fixed.

lol, but then I don't like cheating.. But damn this game looks great, I love crash and the 60hz boost is tempting.

Thanks for your replies mate!

It's honestly difficult to the point of not being very fun. And this is coming from someone who absolutely loves platformers. And it's not an enjoyable challenge, it's just fucking irritating TBH.

Going for all 106 % is brutal and way harder than Crash 1. My suggestion is that you start playing very casually, make your way through the story and have fun. When you beat the game and is somewhat familiar with levels you can focus on extra challenges such as gems, relics, flashback tapes etc. I've seen way to many people get frustrated and burnt out by trying to do it all at once.

I downloaded the PS5 version yesterday, the game is beautiful and should really get more attention as an excellent platformer. T4B did a great job taking this next gen.

As someone who was never a fan of the original PlayStation games, or the remasters, I’m actually really enjoying this on PS5. The level design is a lot better. It also feels a bit better (though still a far cry from Mario). There’s still some nagging issues with depth perception and hit boxes but overall it‘s a much better experience. It also just looks really nice.

Do we know if this fixed hit boxes? I was playing Bears Repeating and that awful final segment getting those 4 crate combos and I got them all. Not sure if it’s a case of getting “better” or that the hit boxes were patched...

Fixed it.

Motherfucking IGN article had me confused.

On Xbox you can just let it upgrade and your save will be there, transfer shit is only on PS4/PS5

That one had been fixed to increase the smash radius when riding polar.

The level I played on Series X where the frame rate tanked right at the end is called Run It Bayou. I’m playing it again now to see if it happens again...

So just replayed it. Not as long and bad as I remember but the frame rate tanks in that one part pretty bad. There is water falling and boxes to smash and it just drops and it’s very noticeable. Hopefully there’s a patch as I can’t figure out why in that part it drops yet nowhere else in that level.

It was $16 cheaper on Switch at Wal Mart. $33.88 for the Switch version and $49.94 for the PS4 and Xbox One version.

After doing a Toxic Tunnels run and getting the hidden gem, I can’t even imagine ever going for a perfect relic for this stage. I’d like to complete this game fully but some aspects might end up being too demanding. Loved this game though.

I gave up months ago. I just think it’s way too tedious and not fun going for full completion in this game. I loved doing it in the nsane trilogy.

Seems to be fixed in EU now, just downloaded it.

But really, are the custscenes FMV, and if so, why on earth are they not 4K? The gameplay looks really nice and crisp, but the cutscenes seem way too blurry.

I did it. I did everything. Completing this game 106% felt like being in an abusive relationship at times.

Now I can finally move on with my life.
