I been doing alot of research on Sony Computer Entertainments push to bring back 3 legendary game franchises that kept gamers wanting more sequels and endless adventures.
One word: Hell yeah Sony bring your beautys home!
You are faster than the speed of comment
Jak and Daxter most of all, that series has so mich potential with the PS4's hardware. I'd also love to see MediEvil return
He is "Lucky Suke". He comments faster than his shadow. On topic: I'd definately love to get some of those back.
I want them to return so they can have a final closing properly. I hate what Activision did to these series. When I comes to tooney mascot games from PS1 era, I actually would love to see Gex rebooted for this gen.
Hell and yeah are two words -_- just do the N4G community a favor and stop commenting.
Crash and spyro first hit the PSX had many great hours with both and there sequels.... Now jack n daxter to me was on another level PS2 title again many hours glorious graphics back then i thought it was Sony's Mario.
Well we're getting Ratchet & Clank in the 1st half of next year, that's a good start. If Sony making a game to go along with the R&C movie is anything to go by, then Sly Cooper will get a release in 2016. As much as I'd love them to get PS4 releases Crash & Spyro don't seem the most likely, with Activision presumably still owning the rights. That leaves Jak & Daxter, the most likely behind Sly for Sony's next cartoony, platform style game. I could see Naughty Dog changing gears back from serious to the more laid back style J&C offers and with the hardware in PS4 that game would no doubt make gamers feel like they're playing a CG movie, I won't be shocked if Insomniac makes Ratch & Clank look that good on PS4.
Sign the petition to help get Crash Bandicoot back to PlayStation where he belongs! We want this thing to go viral So that it will raise heads at Sony to get them to consider obtaining the IP back or at least have control over Crash in some way. Sony are listening, we just need to make our voices heard! #BringBackCrash https://www.change.org/en-G...
Is it too late to recommend a non-Activision model/image of Crash be used?
Are you a computer how are you always first!?
More Crash or we riot!
Urm...yeah Sony should really be trying harder to get these back, we need more platformers.
The thing is, Activision knows that there's demand for Crash and Spyro, and so they won't give them up. They just keep on making bad games with them.
No. not really. Platformers are kind of the thing of the past. Now that may upset fans but gaming has evolved past that now (especially platformers of this nature). Though Ubisoft has taken a step in the right direction with Rayman which could get more people into platformers. Cheaper versions are ideal for that genre. If Sony was going to bring Crash, Spyro, Jak and Daxter back they need to make them PSN games or second tier retail games. I really don't think a $60 would stand up to other retail games in this modern gaming culture.
The thing is if you had a game like Banjo-Kazooie for example and made a next gen game out of it the levels could be huge...so huge that it would justify that price tag. I remember playing old platformer games like Banjo, Conker, Rayman 3, Jak III, Psychonauts etc and they had great level designs which kept you going for ages. Your mission, the side missions, the collectibles, the secrets etc kept you going on a single level for ages. If we made a 3D platformer game this gen god knows how big they can be. The only people to justify that price tag is the developers, they need to make sure the game is packed full of content. As you said about Ubisoft, Rayman is great game to get people back into platformers but they've got to do a 3D Rayman game again because another 2.5d one is going to feel the same. I really wish they did 3D for LittleBigPlanet 3 but I guess Media Molecule is keeping a 3D create your own content platformer for a new IP.
You have a point there but this really just revolves around new gamers. There are plenty of potential players who grew up playing these video games and would love another title in the series. There's also a chance that newcomers who might not have ever played these original video games could really grow into and enjoy playing platformers.
This kind of contrary outlook is what depresses the market. :/
Hell yea.Just imagine being able to Spyro,Crash,J&D,R&C and now even Knack some of the best platformers around all on PS4. https://emilyrunschicago.fi...
Yes, please. Don't make me beg...
I think we're past that point, sadly. I really hope it happens.
I think Sony and MS seem a little afraid to take on Nintendo when it comes to platforming. Sony have LBP and Ratchet and Clank but other than that they have nothing to compete with Mario, DK, Kirby and Yoshi. It'd be nice to have some level of variety on all platformers. Please bring back Crash, not fussed about Spyro, he's been bastardised enough with Skylanders, would defo love to see Jak and Daxter return as well. MS are crying out for platformers as well, if only they had access to multiple classic IPs that would be capable of not only competing with Nintendo but actually going 1 better, something along the lines of the games Nintendo were bringing out in the N64 era during the golden age of platforming. Ah well, looking at their release list its clear they have no such ownership of a stack of IPs like that...
You dumb. What about Banjo, Conker, kameo, blinx, to name a few. Microsoft have a history of great ips. I'm pretty sure they are working on some of these.
Yeah man I was being sarvastic. It just looks that way because they nevwr use the ip they have access to and it makes me sad.
So true, its a waste not to use them.
I didnt really like any of those. Bring back Bloody Roar!!!
I without a doubt want all these games sequels back on Ps4
I want them on my Xbox
I guess everybody has a right to dream.
Get a ps4 and plug it in the HDMI in on your xbone, boom 1080P son!
Couldn't care less for Jak & Daxter. However, if somehow Sony got back Crash, Spyro & Croc... I'd piss, poo & scream in excitement!!!
Personally, no. I didn't enjoy any of the games on the older platforms and would have no interest in playing them now. However, for the good of the industry I'd give a big YES! :D All the games mentioned still maintain a big following today and even if a game is a little under expectation, the more the better.
yes! crash bandicoot was really giving mario a challenge!
U should add ape escape
And Croc And PaRappa the Rapper
I really hope we see another jack and daxter game. Jack3 was one of my favorite ps2 games. It deserves another real game, not just a HD collection.
Spyro and Crash should come back! I don't care too much if Jak and Daxter comes back but I certainly wouldn't mind.
Crash Bandicoot is my favorite out of the 3. He needs to return to PS Vita. Sony please take the IP from Activision ? There's been no vision for 6 years.
I just can't believe Sony let Spyro and Crash get away. They are what made PS1 the #1 console at it's time.
sadly Sony didnt own Crash and Spyro, literally :/ But they could've bought the rights, when they aquired ND
no shit, those are what the fanbases were requesting for years
Petition to Activision to sell the rights of Crash Bandicoot https://www.change.org/en-C...
With the reboot/reimagines of R&C. We need a reboot/reimagine of Jak and Daxter... and Ape Escape too
If jak & dexter come back I dont think my young little heart can take it... Demon Jak in 1080p 60fps would be Epic
I know it's an impossible dream, but Sony should make a platformer with a dream team and putting these guys together would definitely get the hype train going. But alas they all belong to different companies...
I'd love to see all of these games.....most realistic one is jak and daxter - sony owns it...so make it happen!
Nah, Im all set. Crash can stay in my memory.
Yes, of course, we need more platformers. @iamnsuoerman: maybe for you mobas and free-to-play are games of the future, right? Speak for yourself, platformers will always be important for the gaming industry.
Sony doesn't even use the ip's they already have, why would they go after someone elses. Remakes or sequels/reboots they could make on PS4: MediEvil, The Legend of Dragoon, Twisted Metal, Ape Escape, Wild Arms, Legend of Legaia, Wipeout, Arc the Lad, Cool Boarders, Jak and Daxter, PaRappa the Rapper, Siren, MotorStorm and a bunch more. After they have done something with a few of these then that's when I think they should start making new ip's. But instead they will probably make a Knack 2...
Nostqligc bullshit. These games were good for the time. New IP's please.
yes! pls bring them back!
Now thinking about it why not Sly Cooper and anyone remember Ty the Tasmanian Tiger???
Yes too all 3, especially Spyro and Crash
Let's see Yes Yes And Yes
