Sony never owed crash, it was owned by universal but they had a contract with Sony to make it exclusive.

Oh, God, I hope it's true! Crash was so misused under Activision's control. Please, please, please, let Sony have Crash Bandicoot back!

Vitalogy3837d ago

Hope they also bring a completely new CB to the Vita as well :)

Omfg!!!!! A next gen Crash By ND will bring so much memories again. I remember the guy dressed as crash always taunting Nintendo. Just classic man! This is the reason I like Sony. They're all about the fans when it comes to gaming.

Concertoine3837d ago

umm assuming they bought it.
id like to believe it too but lets not get ahead of ourselves lol

Either way the sign that Activision may no longer have Crash, is very good news in itself.

Munky_Mafoo3837d ago

I guess the Crash Bandicoot reference in the PS4 advert was true. Oh Sony you

sonic9893837d ago

wwoooow that would be fantastic OLD memories just keep coming in my head
i am starting to listen to some of the classic crash sound tracks LOL ( that excited )

iiwii3837d ago

@nowayout

Cool, thanks for the link. I also noticed Ryu on the screen in the back of the cab too.

This definitely looks like something is happening with Crash, and it looks like Sony may be the new owner? Or maybe Naughty Dog?

DealWithIt3837d ago

More importantly: There is a trash can at the bottom :D

So, the whole thing now translates to Crash coming to Sony from, well trash (Activision?)

XD

JackVagina3837d ago

that trash can could signify Activision

(lol)
