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.

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

Is it too late to recommend a non-Activision model/image of Crash be used?

Urm...yeah

Sony should really be trying harder to get these back, we need more platformers.

HammadTheBeast1550d ago

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.

iamnsuperman1550d ago (Edited 1550d ago )

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.

dpatrick1550d ago

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.

ArtificiallyYours1550d ago

This kind of contrary outlook is what depresses the market. :/

Majin-vegeta1550d ago

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.
