Activision Closes 'Crash Bandicoot' Website, Removes All References to the Franchise

8CN: Despite the rumors that Crash Bandicoot would be returning soon for the PlayStation 4, it would appear that previous publisher Activision is trying to distance itself from the franchise.

Sony never owed crash, it was owned by universal but they had a contract with Sony to make it exclusive.

Oh, God, I hope it's true! Crash was so misused under Activision's control. Please, please, please, let Sony have Crash Bandicoot back!

Vitalogy1369d ago

Hope they also bring a completely new CB to the Vita as well :)

They should have purchased Spyro, too, before this happened...

Omfg!!!!! A next gen Crash By ND will bring so much memories again. I remember the guy dressed as crash always taunting Nintendo. Just classic man! This is the reason I like Sony. They're all about the fans when it comes to gaming.

Concertoine1369d ago

umm assuming they bought it.
id like to believe it too but lets not get ahead of ourselves lol

Either way the sign that Activision may no longer have Crash, is very good news in itself.

Munky_Mafoo1369d ago

I guess the Crash Bandicoot reference in the PS4 advert was true. Oh Sony you

What commercial is that from?! If you have the YouTube link or something. That is pretty crazy!

Enemy1369d ago (Edited 1369d ago )

Yep, here's the full shot. http://i4.minus.com/iDG9Hfa...

It's definitely coming, guys.

sonic9891369d ago

wwoooow that would be fantastic OLD memories just keep coming in my head
i am starting to listen to some of the classic crash sound tracks LOL ( that excited )

iiwii1369d ago

@nowayout

Cool, thanks for the link. I also noticed Ryu on the screen in the back of the cab too.

This definitely looks like something is happening with Crash, and it looks like Sony may be the new owner? Or maybe Naughty Dog?

DealWithIt1369d ago

More importantly: There is a trash can at the bottom :D

So, the whole thing now translates to Crash coming to Sony from, well trash (Activision?)

XD

JackVagina1369d ago

that trash can could signify Activision

(lol)

I don't know why people care so much? It must be nostalgia. The games were good dont get me wrong but hardly mind blowing. I think people are just clouded by memories.. gaming has moved on. Its the sort of thing that could be cool if its a cheap downloadable game

MrSwankSinatra1369d ago

keep your garbage opinion to yourself. if anything was shown with mario galaxy, rayman origins, sonic generations that platformers can still thrive if done right.

BluP1369d ago

Dude, I still play the original Crash games. Even CTR. It's more than nostalgia.
