Uh Oh. So they did lie. I bet you Sony did buy the Ip and Activision lied because they were probably still processing everything with Sony.

You know even if i'm highly excited for a Crash return i think the garbage media will still say "ohh it's old fashion do we really need it" just because it's not COD.

We have had amazing platformers on PS3 (Sly, Puppeteer..) and none of these sold much unfortunately just because the media has garbage opinions and they didn't do anything to make people wanna buy and try these games.

that was my rant of the day.

Heard about Tearaway? looks amazing!

It really is sad. I hope Sony continues to support plenty of platformers for the PS4 & PS Vita regardless of the reviewers and the media.

Shall i get the mob with torches and picks ready??

To hell with garbage media are best bet is too spread the word and hopefully it picks up steam.

i bought all ratchet games this gen and even the shitty ones (A4O and Q force), Sly: Thieves in Time and Collection, Jak Trilogy, Puppeteer, Tearaway because i support and love this genre.

If not many people have bought Sly Trilogy no way we would have had Sly: Thieves in Time.
If you wanna keep seeing platformers WE gamers need to support them before it's too late.

You are right! The problem is that the younger generation doesn't even what what a Crash Bandicoot is. All they know is CoD, Gears of War and Halo. To them, if there is no mass murder and tons of guns, it's not even a game. Sad but true.

To the author:

Don't toy with my emotions!! Crash Bandicoot is one of my favorite games of all time. I've been dreaming of it's return ever since Sony sold it to Activision. If Sony did buy it back and they are making a new one than I will be very, very happy. I would even pay $200 for a new Crash game. That's how much I miss it.

I see what you're saying abzdine but I think it's the opposite. I think Knack got hit hard because there was no nostalgia tied to it. I think a new Crash game will benefit from nostalgia and people will be more open to it.
abzdine  +   145d ago
@curtis92:
you say Knack had no nostalgia tied to it, no reason for not buying it in my opinion.
In the opposite way if we consider Sly or Ratchet there is a big nostalgia but people still keep away from them.

I really hope Crash is happening, but if it happens i hope people will realize that we need more of them and i don't only wanna see one episode and then no more because there is no market for this genre anymore.

I don't buy COD, i dont buy Battlefield i prefer to support nice refreshing fun titles that put a smile on my face everytime i hear the music or pick the controller to play it.
I am so much looking forward to Knack co-op it seems like old days are back finally!!!
inveni0  +   145d ago
If it comes out as good as Knack, I'll be thrilled.
sinncross  +   145d ago
why not wait until it is actually confirmed before you get upset if Sony didnt buy the IP.

yeah signs point towards it, but nothing is concrete atm.

no doubt, fans have been screaming at sony for his comeback, my guess if they havent theyre going to, or theyre under embargo or how ever it goes down to whatever date they specified :') ..plus its the official playstation brazil so ;)
-Foxtrot  +   145d ago
Hell they could of bought it a while ago, they might have a game in production now and Sony simply told them not to say anything.
Majin-vegeta  +   145d ago
I bet its one big ploy of Sony.They want us to think that Activision still owns it so they can surprise with a trailer at the VGA's.

*Screen is dark the words "I'm finally home"appear out of the darkess.Then we all hear that famous Crash Bandicoot noise.

What is the Crash Bandicoot noise?

For some reason, when I think of Crash I think of "Fasten your seatbelt, for another Naughty Dog creation!" from CTR :)
TheFallenAngel  +   145d ago
I'm thinking the same and they even convinced Activision to play along. If its not true then it sucks.
Name Last Name  +   145d ago
When I think of Crash the sound he makes while spinning comes to mind.
Honest_gamer  +   145d ago
This is great

Totally of topic but I really need help, best mates xbox one won't work (got it yesterday from game) worked amazing yesterday loved dead rising, but u turn it on it beeps, and the power brick light goes white, amber, of.

I haven't heard of any unofficial fixes for an issue like this.

Maybe try tweeting @xboxsupport ?
Honest_gamer  +   145d ago
Thanks will do :-)
MegaRay  +   145d ago
Crash is sony game. Youre asking Sony's fans how to fix your xbox one? Ok ill tell you, go to the bathroom and through your xone on the toilet come after an hour and the thing should work.
Honest_gamer  +   145d ago
Comment clearly wasn't directed at fanboys but gamers who have both console and going by this site sony fans hknow more about the errors of the xbox one than te Xbox one fans so ur point is totally Irrelevant even more so when every sony fanboy here screams that the xbox fans is on their articles and posts stuff so would make sense to post that here, where according to the sony fans this is exactly where the xbox fans would be? Dam that was a moth full

Majin-vegeta  +   145d ago

Off topic:We need a sequel to you!!.
GraveLord  +   145d ago
That translates to "Crash Wants A Hug".
TheLyonKing  +   145d ago
Don't toy with my emotions sony............CRASH! CRASH, I want a hug too :(
Rai  +   145d ago
If Sony did get the license back, I hope they give Crash to a new up and coming team.
younglj01  +   145d ago

MegaRay  +   145d ago
Next article: yushida says they dont own crash, like seriously when will they announce the damn thing? They should've announce it at e3 this year, xbox would've sell 100k less
Captain Qwark 9  +   145d ago
i hope this is true so bad!!!!!!! esp if naughty dog is back on this and uncharted!
theshredded  +   145d ago
I bet it's not from Naughty Dog but a few devs there will help
Lysander91  +   145d ago
Maybe Activision still owns the rights to the franchise, but Sony has the rights to a new game or series in the franchise.

gamepard  +   145d ago
it s the official page of PS in brazil?? then its official crash is returning home (i hope not from activision and not as timed exclusive
BABY-JEDI  +   145d ago
I would really like a reboot of Crash. With a team of KRAZY characters on a quest. Various gameplay types, with each character having a back story with various strength & weaknesses.
Oh & great fur physics.

feraldrgn  +   145d ago
I'm going to believe Sony hasn't bought back the IP.

& that Activision is going to bring him back in a way that'll leave a sour taste in our mouths.

I don't want to get my hopes up.
speed389  +   145d ago
I really really want crash to come back, bad. The crash I loved when made by naughty dog... ide pay full price day one of its release
Relientk77  +   145d ago
I hope Crash does return to PS4 (not by Activision)
