Releasing old games like Crash Bandicoot on the PlayStation Network makes more sense than peanut butter and jelly, as evidenced by the fact that the PSone Classic has now surpassed 500,000 downloads in Europe. Sony confirmed the tidbit as part of its monthly digital sales charts, where the Naughty Dog hit held onto its place atop the retro section.

In fact, the entire category was once again dominated by the platforming icon, with Crash Team Racing crossing the chequered flag in third, and Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped assuming the fourth and fifth spots. It’s a shame that Sony no longer owns the license, as we’d love to see the spunky hero make a comeback.
