Crash Bandicoot PlayStation All-Stars Rumor Debunked

DualShock Nexus: I as well as many others were pretty excited to see the recently leaked image that shows Crash Bandicoot in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. A recent image compiled of a few Crash Bandicoot poses reveal that this is more than likely a photoshop attempt.

Nooooo! ! ! ! ! :(

zeal0us2265d ago

Guess it will be a while before we see Crash back in action :(

SilentNegotiator2265d ago

Under the wings of Activision. Yech.

They probably won't bother unless they can bastardize it into a toy line like they did Spyro.

Treezy5042265d ago

Still doesn't mean that Crash will not make an appearance in the game, I still think there is hope.

KingOptimusOrigin1112265d ago

Probably Superbot will have to fight activision down just to get crash in the game as DLC.

DarkBlood2265d ago

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO *charges at random somebody with a lightsabre luke skywalker style* :P

thought i add a little drama to that lol

anyways its a shame crash would of been my go to character like shiek for smash bro

well looks like Nariko will be my go to character as planned

Treezy5042265d ago

@KingOptimus I don't think they would have to fight very hard

KingOptimusOrigin1112265d ago

Well lets hope he makes his triumphant return just like when they revealed Jak & Daxter for this game.

Omar912265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

thats actually very reassuring lol. I hope they can work things out.

dark-hollow2265d ago (Edited 2265d ago )

spyro is expected due to the massive success of skylanders, but crash didnt have a decent game for ages!

i dont think its hard for superbot to talk (pay) activision for crash since they basically abandoned him.

which is such a shame, the only classic character from ps1 era till now is parappa and sweet tooth. hopefully more would be revealed soon.

Omar912265d ago

thats what I'm saying. Crash is not being used whatsoever. he isn't in any new games he isn't very popular after activision took him so what else do they need him for. If superbot talks to them and explain to them that this character has been the main playstation mascot and its what shaped sony to begin with I'm sure activision can give them a hand. and if crash does get to be in the game then we know spyro is in : D

LOL!!!! you make it sound like Activision doesn't know crash's history. Activision probably wants a lot of money to license out crash and spyro. Probably will license them out as a duo since Spyro is pretty hot right now and crash is basically dead.

However, i believe that the picture is real, I understand that the writer is saying that he easily found poses similar to other poses. But can't you say that for every game or character?

Outside_ofthe_Box2265d ago

I'm not surprised that it is fake. There is still hope though.

This might sound a bit off topic... but my biggest problem with the roster is the third party characters that were leaked and confirmed

It feels like the third parties involved in allstars are not taking it seriously, and rather are just using it as a cheap marketing stunt for their own upcoming games and they get money from it

Capcom gives them Dante from DMC.. not the Dante that established himself on the PS2... how about Jill Valentine? As the PS1 also had the original resident evil?

Nope... lets promote our new game instead

Kojima and Sony have a great history together... so why no Snake? I mean, I have no problems with Raiden... but MGR Raiden? Really? How about MGS4 raiden (Im sure its a costume) as the base model, and MGR as the costume... MGS4 is one of the best games on the PS3. Use a base model that Playstation gamers are familar with, not one from a game thats not even out yet

I mean MGS4 was going to be released after Smash Bros Brawl.. but they never used the old snake model.. they used the twin snakes model.. .a game that was exclusive to gamecube, and made sense and made you feel like Konami took snakes inclusion in brawl seriously

Square and Activision are just dicking them around... not giving characters that are synonomus with Playstation

Sora, Cloud, Spyro, Crash... these are names that pop into peoples heads first when they hear playstation... yet these studios refuse to give them these characters that the fans demand

Superbot has done a great job with first party, and its really sad to see people complain about the third party characters and claim superbot is to blame... the third partys are acting like total assholes, and are not treating this game with any respect

I know its really early to judge as I haven't seen any gameplay for these new characters... but I feel like the third partys are screwing with us

Im also slighly upset they haven't announced Ezio, or another Assassin... I was sure he was a shoe in since Sony and Ubisoft are buddies, every assassins creed game has content exclusive to the PS3, and well this

Notice something similar?

Wow that is eerie that the song for the trailer is the same as the theme song (or what seems to be used as the theme song) for pasbr. Very nice find :D
You sir, with your nimble skills, get a bubble vote!

Outside_ofthe_Box2265d ago

***"Sora, Cloud, Spyro, Crash"***

If these four were in it, it would complete the roster IMO.

Also if they are going to have an Assassin in it, it should be the one from the Vita seeing how that Assassin is exclusive to PlayStation for now and it will promote the game and we need more female characters in this game.

But I agree it is really sad that the 3rd party is taking PSA very seriously. I think it's because they don't think it will be a success. That is why we need to support this first game so that 3rd party publishers see that this game is indeed a popular and will be more willing to give out their characters for the next game.

@outside of the box:

NOOO... Sequels in multiplayer games should be kept to a minimum especially in fighting games. So no to releasing those characters in sequels and Sony need to try harder to get more characters in this game.
