Adam Boyes: Activision owns the IP, so you should ask them about it...
I just want the old platform style back, Crash 2 was in my opinion far more awesome of the original three games.
Lol just emulate the game on a PC :P
lol at the casual gamers. Use google next time before you make a silly mistake.
Imagine if ms bought the IP, "jumps off the cliff"
I have the original PS1 game discs. And you can get the games on PSN. No need to emulate.
"you can get the games on PSN." True you can, as long as you have a PS3. As long as you are willing to reinvest in a PS3 again and again sure you can play the games you bought on PSN. Unless Sony decides to rewrite them for the PS4. Id think PC is still a good alternative for people who own the original disks.
@ decrypt I can play the game discs on my PS3 (as well as my PS1 and PS2). And the games through PSN work on PS3, PSP and PS Vita. Are you ever on PC articles? Or do you guys have nothing going on that you feel the need to be on almost every console article.
Just tweet this pre-made tweet http://clicktotweet.com/wd9... to all the Sony execs, they need to know how many people want Crash on PS4 =) I hope Sony can aquire the IP, Activision really is not worthy of it.
"We didn't think it was possible, but with the combined power of the xbox one and cloud computing; we've managed to make Spyro uglier."
Go make love to your PC, go along now. I have the physical copies. Try a bit harder next time kid.
Fans want NEW 3d platformers, smartass. That's why we were excited that Sony had supposedly bought Crash.
Activision still own the IP.......oh snap. well, it was Exciting while it lasted. :(
Sony is just trolling us, they aren't going to admit something big in a tweet. Why would they put that Crash reference in the PS4 launch trailer, the arrow to the old Sony Entertainment logo....they could of just had a picture of Crash but they didn't do that, they went a step further.
In all fairness, that trailer also had Assassin's Creed, Watch_Dogs, Street Fighter and Final Fantasy references. All franchises which Sony don't own... So it doesn't mean Sony owns Crash IP now. Also I'm not convinced they used the ad to tease new games for PS4... Just like there's a Crash reference, there are Echochrome, Heavy Rain and The Last Of Us references too, none of which are likely to release on PS4. The only franchise that we didn't new was coming to PS4 at that moment which was referenced on the ad was Uncharted (Drake's Antiques shop), but that doesn't mean it was a tease, it could as well just had been there as a remarkable/signature PS experience, worth joining the ad. I don't like it anymore than you guys, so I reall wouldn't mind to be proven wrong, but as of now Crash reference on the video alone doesn't point at the IP changing hands or even at a new Crash being made.
Yeah I just had a feeling there was a "...for now" missing at the end of that comment.
Activision Please :(
People are really sad here, they really thought Activision--ACTIVISION--would sell an IP at an affordable price, THEY RENEWED THE TRADEMARK BACK IN 2011!!!
I think it's far more likely that Sony and Activision reached an agreement to have Crash on PS4, rather than Activision outright selling the IP. The site being taken down could just mean that a brand new site is on the way along with an announcement. The timing would suggest something at VGX in a couple weeks.
I just want to see platformer's and Rpg's make a serious comeback.
Me too ...
Me to, I was kinda bummed that no hardcore RPGs were available at launch for the PS4. Something like the first Dragon Age would've been awesome. RPGs are getting to close to just being shooters and Hack n'Slash games. I was one of those people that was pissed when Bioware changed up their formulas with DA2 and ME2.There were barely enough RPG elements in those games to even call them RPGs. Oh well, we still have The Witcher 3 to look forward to, and I'm really hoping that Cyberpunk 2077 makes its way to next-gen platforms as well.
This is what I want from next gen
A man would laugh if you finally trap Sonic only to have Crash come in and spin you off the screen
Ahh damn it :/ maybe sony are trolling us and will blow our minds at VGX
Lol your faith is strong!
stand strong i still have faith
ARGH!!! i hate activision :/
Ditto !!! :|
Sony y u say dis =( I hate Activision...Not because they own the Crash IP but because they aren't even doing anything with it...
Thats how companies are, instead of passing the chalice to someone who can actually do something with it when they no longer can, big-wigs would rather no one benefit from it on the whole, (kinda like Hitler's method of Scorched Earth but on a digital scale.) Companies only release IPs if they are sinking to the bottom of the ocean in stock or the rare case that they believe no one could make profit more than they could have. Check out what happened to Sleeping Dogs. If Activision knew they would have made a good profit with True Crime: Hong Kong along the lines of some of their heavy hitters but didn't want to invest more than Call Of Duty to do so, the game still wouldn't have seen the light of day.
Not that it's confirmed crash is back, but wouldn't you think they would deny all questions regarding the title until they officially announce it? If they announce it that is. Why would he just randomly give it away to a random tweeter asking him... Patience, my lads. :) let time play itself out and then we'll see.
Sony please tell me your trolling , I hope you are , we need the game on your PS4
That's what I said but got a bunch of disagrees: http://n4g.com/news/1395370...
No pls, not another obscene Crash from Activision... better a new IP. Crash won't come back, he died after Crash Team Racing (last Crash game made by Naughty Dog, i think). Why don't they make a new IP with a new character? I miss the old good platform games.
Not easy making a fun lovable character
No Please activision just doesn't understand what Crash is about. This is sad
I remember jumping and screaming as a kid when I beat Crash Bandicoot Warped after repeating that boss battle close to a dozen times. Great feeling. Id happily buy a next gen Crash platform made by ND.
that was Sony biggest mistake that they sold an amazing game to a rubbish company
Crash was owned by Universal. Time went on and Crash ended up in Activision's hands...their dirty, dirty hands.
Their biggest mistake was not buying the rights off Universal in the first place and just letting the competition get their grubby mitts on it.
Well that's not good news :(
I'm one of those people who actually likes the post-Naughty Dog Crash games. Sure they don't feel like true Crash games, but they are solid platformers. However, I don't want another game like that -- it's time for the franchise to get back to its roots. Activision hasn't done anything with the IP since 2008, aside from one mobile game. Sell the IP to a company who actually gives a damn.
Crash Twinsanity was the last game Crash game I enjoyed. Everything after that kinda blew imo.
Then obviously Activision has killed the franchise... Complaint letter time!
Adam lying. Sony have Crash but won't reveal it til E3. Well at least I hope it's a lie. http://a.disquscdn.com/uplo...
One can hope... One can hope...
We being trolled. Of course they gonna try to deny us that they bought it.They wanna make sure were eating when they announce it so we can choke on our food :p.
I seriously hope Sony is lying, because I don't think my heart can take another Crash related crushing.
Crash is probably the most beloved character ever to grace a Sony console. It's a crime that Activision have locked him up and thrown away the key. My day is ruined.
It's weird that the pic used for the article has been my profile pic for such a long time now. I'm just hoping that Sony wants to surprise us in the near future.
Crash would be likely to bring some life back to platforming. As long as it doesn't follow examples of Knack, and go back to the roots of Crash games.
Something is fishy here. Why the main Crash website is off then? and why Activision is not making any reference to Crash's games? Is there another company buying the IP or it is just Sony trolling us? I don't know.
wait maybe they didnt buy it back but are still getting it exclusive because how would hey have been allowed to put that crash cameo in their launch trailer
Sony, I am disapoint. Because since Activision erased pretty much all existence of it, we'll probably never see it again. :/
the add didnt show the easter egg for nothing..mabe we ll see Crash from Activision again :(( as timed exclusive that it will be lame but lets hope for the better that Sony just trolling
I am sad. :(
Im sure Sony tried to get it but Activision is probably too greedy.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Please Sony... troll us please :(
Please use some of the ps4 sales money to get it back sony! It would be worthwhile investment.
No, Sony you must be kidding right? Riiight? Maybe they want to surprise us at E3 or VGX!
I don't think Sony bought the rights, I'm pretty sure they just had an agreement / deal to bring the franchise back to the PS4.
bring back spyro to
But...but...that doesn't mean Sony isn't ABOUT to buy the IP right? Right? C'mon Sony. Make it happen.
