If Activision isn't gonna do anything with Crash, just give the franchise back to Sony. When it comes to this franchise, Activision is such a lame-duck publisher. They do the series no justice.

boybato3766d ago

Hopefully they'll see crashes potential through these sales number. I'd like to see Crash grace the ps4 or the vita.

Cam9773766d ago

Imagine how vibrant the colour palette would be on a portable Vita entry. Aaahhh...

USMC_POLICE3766d ago

but yet they are not playable on vita nor are the spyro ps1 games!

TheGrimReaper00113766d ago

... what?
Yes they are.
I have both trilogies on my vita!
Spyro and Crash

USMC_POLICE3766d ago

Are you in north america? I can't get them on my vita it won't let me

TheGrimReaper00113766d ago

Oow, I forgot
Well, I live in Europe and it does work here though
Why wouldnt it work in North America though?
What's the point of not being able to do that?

USMC_POLICE3765d ago

To keep us from enjoying games from our childhood!

Mr_Luke3766d ago

Eh, when a game is made by the right ppl, it sells well even after years... Crash died in the moment Naughty Dog sold the IP. Same thing Spyro, when Insomniac sold the IP. I'd really like the HD versions of those games... ;(

Cam9773766d ago

Crash Bandicoot (the original) with HD textures, audio and superior animations.

We can dream. Google search "NDE", you may experience Crash HD in one of these.

badboy7763766d ago

I said this awhile ago. It seems that every franchise went downhill once ot left playstion and went multiplatform. Spyro,crash,tomb raider,Resident evil,GTA4(Sucked),final fantasy etc....

knifefight3766d ago

Ah, so here's the real reason backwards compatibility is going out the door?

Boy oh boy what indeed is happening with PS Studios. Thank God for Insomniac.

Boy oh boy what indeed is happening with PS Studios."

Mismanagement, obviously.

Hermen Hulst is ol Jimbo´s sleeping agent ruining everything at Playstation Studios. Now that Connie is gone, he´ll probably get his mistress Angie Smets promoted yet again to fill Connie´s position.

Amid so many layoffs and uncertainty, the working environment at Playstation Studio could have become unbearable for him to continue on. Then, after just 4 months ahead of his new role, he didn´t felt motivated enough to continue on.

Anyway, another major loss at Playstation Studios. Totoki must find Ryan´s replacement ASAP!

Sometimes people just want to leave.

Do you spend most of your day making up stories in your head to help you sleep better at night?

Lightning7720d ago

Can you tone it down for once? Way too much assuming and Hyperbole in your comment.

The shift to LS workforce will indeed have growing pains nobody said it would be easy transition.

Tacoboto20d ago

Bobby Kotick will be available as a replacement to turn those GaaS around

Rimeskeem20d ago (Edited 20d ago )

You should change your name to Chris Van Dusen cause you just create unrealistic drama.

Just so you know, Microsoft laid off more than 10000 employees this year which, according to you, must mean they are just falling apart and having lots of mismanagement. https://www.cnbc.com/2023/0...

I don't now why I even bother showing you this, no chance you are actually going to change your belief system even if there is hard evidence against it.

Clicked this article thinking "I wonder how close to the top of the comments obscurer is"

There he is. In good form as always.

Crows9019d ago

Dude stop spouting nonsense.

Naughty dog has been in trouble since Neil druckman took over. They were always able to deliver with something pretty consistently...Neil isn't talented ...so obviously people will continue to abandon ship. They probably don't like the progressive direction either.

Charlieboy33319d ago

@North Obscure is blessed with an amazing gift. He is able to fabricate amazing scenarios and can literally trick his brain into believing they are the actual real truth

benobee19d ago

Dude you sound like a complete nut case calm down and stop acting like you care what goes on at PlayStation other than to try and make your doom and gloom comments.

Ah I knew it. Before I even finished the headline my first thought was. No doubt obscure is one of the first comments spouting bs he pulled out of Phills backside again.

It's not healthy obsessively thinking about Sony and Phill 24/7.

benobee19d ago

This shit is all he ever does and the mods do nothing about it.

shadowT20d ago

So many great Naughty Dog games he was involved!
