They are not doing anything with the IP.. if anything this is a good time for them to test the waters to see if the character can still be well received (and would actually gain them goodwill with some people).

I hope it is true for Crash fans. I only ever played Crash 3 (awesome game!!!).

I hope they announce an HD remake or collection of the series for it's anniversary. Activision would be insane not to do anything with Crash Bandicoot on PAX day.

Activision hasn't done anything with him, I see no reason why they shouldn't license him out to Sony.

I am sure that Sony still owns the rights to the first 3 games.

They never did, it was always Vivendi. Unfortunately Sony just published it.

@KnaveX, Yes but they were made by Naughtydog who is now a first party SONY studio.

i wish but they are on psn already. not in hd.
Teflon02  +   1103d ago
Actually sony owns publishing rights for the first 3 and CTR atleast. Vevendi didn't even own crash at a technical standpoint just they owned naughty dogg at the time and had the right to leave with the ip since sony didn't do the smart thing ahead of time and get the ip rights. No one but Sony can permit the use of Crash Bandicoot 1-3 and CTR. Don't know about Crash Bash though

Please be true because every character reveal so far for me has been I ALREADY KNEW HE/SHE WAS IN, OR REALLY YOU PUT HE/SHE IN HOW ARE THEY PLAYSTATION ALL STARS.

Classic crash ftw

Words cannot express my excitement right now...

Well if this is true it will quell some of the whining that has been going on about the roster. Unless it isn't classic Crash which will actually multiply the current whining by one hundred.

Omg please be true. Crash Bandicoot is amazing and is a true PlayStation Icon.

Honestly, I wish Sony would buy back the rights. I wonder how expensive that would be...
sinncross  +   1103d ago
They cannot buy back something they never owned. The IP was always owned by Vivendi... Sony merely had the publishing rights for the game.

It is like how Capcom have the publishing rights to GTA in Japan, or Square Enix with Call of Duty, even though they have no relation to the game whatsoever.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1103d ago
Not sure why you got a disagree, but that's true. They never had the rights, unfortunately. :/
Relientk77  +   1103d ago
@ MySwordIsHeavenly


I wish Naughty Dog would get the rights back to Crash and Insomniac to Spyro

Personally I think they should put in emo methhead crash....don't want to be too in the past...

All kidding aside this is great rumor news
CaitSith  +   1103d ago
From the tweet, it just says that he HOPES that he is in it and that the guy asking should ask SuperBot for confirmation instead. This does not hint on anything.

Edit: Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE it if Crash is in this game (my first ever PS1 game), but it is better not to expect it than to have your hopes crushed.

Oh imagine the horror ¬¬
ADz_Nz  +   1103d ago
at this point i think he will end up as a dlc character with spyro
achmetha  +   1103d ago
This is one of the last characters I was truly hoping to be confirmed for the game. I don't want to jump the gun, but this is a pretty exciting rumor.
Omar91  +   1103d ago
If he isnt announced at pax (crashes anniversity) then he wont be announced (unfortunatly)
izumo_lee  +   1103d ago
There is absolutely no way that Crash is NOT in PSAS. I believe Sony & Superbot will do everything in their power to convince Activision to allow the character to appear in the game.

Also the tweet suggest asking Superbot, so maybe he is already a part of the roster but has yet to be revealed....maybe?
MiyagiSPG  +   1103d ago
Crash for PS AS! Would deffo be my main :)
Adamblacky2013  +   1100d ago
I can't wait for this as it will be 4 of my favourite playstation hero characters.

Jak and Daxter

Ratchet and Clank

Spike from Ape Escape

Crash Bandicoot returning to do more jumping and fighting :-)
