I don’t know whether to praise or condemn Activision because delaying the game to fix this is the absolute correct choice. Then again, it shouldn’t have gotten to this point to begin with. The whole situation comes off as “We’re as shitty as you allow us to be.”

No kidding. The unofficial word is that Activision was rushing this Collection severely to get out ahead of the coming Black Hole that is Red Dead. You have a team that had to remake 3 entire games from scratch in what can't be more than 2 years when you consider that the Crash Collection is likely the reason this exists. The dev team right now only has Spyro 1 ready and 2 mostly done. 3 is still an active fire, allegedly. And Activision wanted to kick this thing out the door a month from now and fix it later? Sheesh. Master Chief Collection all over again.

Thankfully, the outrage over the games now being all on the disc helped give the devs ammo to push back against the larger problem of the games just flat out not being ready.

So the filesize for the Switch version is 15 gigs so theoretically Activision should be able to go for a 16gb cartridge and fit the game in. Unfortunately it's Activision so that's probably not happening.

Dimes to dollars you have to download Spyros 2 & 3 on Switch via patch just like you had to on PS4.

Okay, seriously, I have a news article going up on the site whenever someone edits it that will go into detail on this but holy **** this is a fucking rabbit hole.
