This is how a new Crash Bandicoot game would look in PS3, X360 and PC

Interesting. The Xbox brand has already shamed the Crash Bandicoot name to the point of no return, so lets just revel in the days of the PS1 classics, and let the series as a whole die. Crash Bandicoot was dead once it lost it's PS exclusitivity anyway, so we shouldn't have a problem forgetting about it. Glad to say that this video will never become an actual game.

So you wouldn't want a Crash game because it isn't exclusive anymore? I rather not forget about a game I grew up with.

I wish Activision would come out with a reboot for next generation consoles.
aPerson  +   803d ago
The franchise doesn't need a reboot. The games all follow a basic story anyway: Cortex has an evil plan and Crash must stop him.

All the franchise needs is a game that plays similar to the originals with updated gameplay and it'll be fine.

Wow, you are so delusional. Crash Bandicoot became crap because Naughty Dog stopped developing those games, not because it released on a non-PS console. If they had been done by ND after CB3 & CTR for multiple platforms, I'm sure they would've been awesome too.
Getowned  +   803d ago
I would love a new CTR lol

Crash will never be the same because ND stopped developing it, just as Spyro will never be the same because Insomniac stopped developing it.

Nothing to do with exclusivity.
ChronoJoe  +   804d ago
Maybe with the sale of Activision Blizzard a lot of things will be shaken up. Maybe Spyro and Crash will become good games, maybe Insomniac will approach them (as a third party studio) to make a new spyro game, maybe Sony will be given an opportunity to buy those intellectual properties.

One can dream.

That has nothing to do with it. It's not because it is on another platform, it's because they were developed by a different developer. If Naughty Dog were independent and still producing Crash Bandicoot games, they would be great on both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
JKelloggs  +   804d ago
No, Activision and Radical Ent has done that, not Xbox
DialgaMarine  +   804d ago
lol @ the people who say it's not because of non-exclusitivity, but because ND stopped developing it. Hey dumbasses, guess what? Sony owns ND. If ND were to develop Crash games, they would have to be exclusive to PS. No PS exclusivity = no ND. Fact.

Also, you call me delusional? Look at how many once great franchises have gone to shit, thanks to Microsoft and their Shitbox. Banjo, Perfect Dark, Dino Crisis, Crash, Spyro, and the list goes on. Any game published on Xbox eventually turns to complete shit. Fact.

is it made by naughty dog? if not then it will never be the same again even if its real :(

edit: but he really did a great job on this

Sony is stupid for selling this franchise.
izumo_lee  +   804d ago
It was not theirs in the first place to begin with. The games were actually owned by i believe Universal who the original creators (Andy Gavin & Jason Rubin) were working for at the time. Universal made a 3 game deal with Sony to publish the games for their new system.

After that publishing deal was done Universal decided to take the game & character in new directions by making it multiplatform.

Oh ok, thank you for correcting me.

You mean naughty dog, because they were the ones that sold it. Not Sony.
aPerson  +   803d ago
Universal sold it.
smashcrashbash  +   804d ago
Always easy to blame Sony for everything isn't it? It never belonged to them. It wasn't theirs to sell.

Reminded me of this:

This is absolutely amazing, makes me nostalgic. I think I'll go play the old games on PS1 :)
Cajun Chicken  +   804d ago
Oh, what I'd do for a new Crash Bandicoot game. I never really liked the ones Radical made, but Traveler's Tales did a good job following Naughty Dog as I loved Wrath of Cortex and even Twinsanity.
It's actually a shame that Vicarious Visions never got to make a full platform style Crash because their GBA games were nothing short of awesome.

Come on Activision, do something with Crash. Just please, leave out the karts, you will NEVER beat CTR.
AgreeFairy  +   804d ago
Using Unreal? No thanks.
Drithe  +   804d ago
WHen Crash Bandicoot first came out, we were so happy to see the cool and colorful graphics. It blew anything the Sega Saturn had away. LOL.
Moerdigan  +   804d ago
nice music
-Gespenst-  +   804d ago
Kind of wish it was a bit more cartoony. Unreal doesn't really capture the original spirit.

Looks good anyway though.
Kratoscar2008  +   804d ago
Is a shame that one of the icons and almost the oficial mascot of playstation had to fall in oblivion.

Damm you Universal.
explicitbaron  +   804d ago
Very nicely done. I would love to see a relaunch of the series with Naughty Dog Developers.
tigertron  +   804d ago
Sony needs their mascot back and ND needs their flagship franchise back.

To put it simply...bring back the TRUE Crash Bandicoot series! (although to be fair I thought TWOC was decent)
SweatyFlorida  +   804d ago
I would kill for an HD remake of the 1st Crash Bandicoot! Too bad the likeliness of that happening is slim to none :/
Emilio_Estevez  +   804d ago
Looks pretty damn good.
mt  +   804d ago
anyone knows why ND sold the fricking Crash Bandicoot. It is the most iconic game in PsOne era.
Killman  +   804d ago
Just one of the many franchises that Activision has ruined.
MasterD919  +   804d ago
Crash is like Sonic now...still pumping games out that don't really do anything for the fans.

He deserves a good comeback. Something along these lines would be epic.

They could even release it as an XBL/PSN download if necessary.
no_more_heroes  +   804d ago
Ahh...memories. This has made my day. God, I wish this was real. This looks awesome!

Believe it or not, my first Crash game was the second one. I actually never heard about Crash Bandicoot until then. I even remember how to get all the colored gems...from muscle memory at least. I wouldn't be able to tell you all of them right now, but if I go play the game right now I'd just automatically do it. The secrets I do remember by heart:

blue gem - first level, don't hit ANY of the boxes
green gem - second world, at the back of the room full of Nitro boxes
third world, jumping back to where the big polar bear that was chasing you fell off at the end of the level, don't remember what for
third world, jump and belly flop on polar multiple times to get 10 lives
normal gem, one of the dark firefly levels from the last world, going backward in the dark down the other path of a fork in the road to get all the boxes

Like I said, the others I'd remember if I actually played the game and saw the levels. Too long now since I've played it to remember just like that.

I want more Crash like the ps1 days. :(

Goodluck with getting another Crash game, Activision owns the IP now.
r21  +   803d ago
this is probably what ND would have done if sony still owned Crash XD
