A new petition has been started online to help bring PlayStation 1 icon; Spyro the Dragon back to PlayStation consoles.
Please save Spyro the Dragon. Sony/Insomniac Games you must do this.
First we need Crash back, then we can worry about Spyro
Abash, well there is currently rumors circulating Crash could be coming back at Sony's conference at E3 this year to celebrate the 20th Anniversary so we have to stay hopeful. Personally I'd love to see both come back as these 2 characters were my childhood and essentially got me into games (along with Mario, Pokemon and Sonic the Hedgehog).
why not both?
I want Spyro way more than Crash, but both would be even better!
First we need people who show real support to platformers by BUYING them before there is any hope of Crash return. I loved the first 2 Spyro games. Never played the Activision sequels but i'm glad Insomniac created Ratchet & Clank. The idea is brilliant.
yes ! give SPyro back to Sony! ..but priority has Crash bandicoot (if he s not already given ;))
If the world is OK with Cartoon platformers still, then I really like this. Spyro Crash Gex Croc Would like to see them return.
Konami need to bring back Contra and Gradius for ps4 as well.
As a Spyro the Dragon fan personally I agree with you completely. I would love to see Spyro come back in his own platforming game. Skylanders is good but it's not really a true Spyro game in my honest opinion.
So it wont be saved if it's insomniac multiplat? Pathetic
First off, Spyro isn't Pew-Pew enough to do well on XBox. Second, it started off being only on PlayStation (with it also releasing on Gamecube, which made sense). Stop being a brat.
I'm the brat? lol good thing you guys aren't running any of these companies.
Yes. You are the brat. I thought you may have subsequently followed your question with a reason as to why you are not a brat, but I was wrong. I never said I don't want the potential game to be on any other platforms, it just would not need to be on any othet platforms to BE successful. Generally these games do not sell on XBox, so it would be pointless to release it on that system. Nintendo would be a good platform to release on, but I doubtthat would happen. Regarding your first comment, "Pathetic" would be the sales if they released this game on Xbox.
Skylanders AKA activisions Spyro seems to be doing just fine on Xbox. (it actually outsold the playstation version) The last Spyro game sold 450k on ps3. and 350k on xbox. How is that pathetic? although 450k is not even that impressive to begin with.
They can if they wanted People think Activision use Spyro for Skylanders despite the fact they've never marketed the ugly new Spyro design or used him for years. They don't even call it Skylanders: Spyros Adventure anymore. They just used Spyro to get Skylanders off the ground that's all. He can come back to Sony, there's a good chance and if Crash is at E3 this year with Sony having bought the rights off them then Spyro should be next
It's not like Activision will actually sell the rights at this point, especially with Spyro being a character in their successful Skylanders franchise. Not only that but Insomniac themselves admitted they were running out of things to do with Spyro after the third installment since he didn't have hands to do a lot more conventional things, hence why Year of the Dragon had multiple playable characters. I'd rather not see them try to beat a dead horse. I'm fine with them continuing to do more work on the excellent Ratchet & Clank series.
Yeah that is a pretty valid point. Well I suppose us fans can at least hold out hope and keep positive. I mean this petition could help Sony notice just how badly the fans want Spyro back in addition to Crash (Granted I think Crash is probably more wanted at this point.) Still though no harm in trying =)
That's true but i also believe that Skylanders could exist without Spyro now, it's not even a Spyro's game anymore.
Do kids play Skylanders because of Spyro though? I feel like most kids who play that game have no idea who Spyro is. I think Spyro was used by Activision to get Skylanders off the ground, but he's outlived his usefulness in that regard. I think Activision can afford to let him go. On the other hand, it's hard to imagine them relinquishing the rights to such a big videogame character that they could make a lot of money from.
@PhoenixUp: Completely agree. Skylanders has been far too much of a cash cow for Activision, kids seem to love Skylanders. Crash hasn't got Activision anything, so Sony buying Crash back seems much more likely.
They could always retell his story like they've done with Ratchet and Clank.
Do the new Skylander games even have Spyro in the title anymore? I am pretty sure they don't. For whatever reason Activision thought Spyro was needed to make Skylanders a hit (and maybe it's true) since it is a hit. But now I don't think they need Spyro. But even then, no way is Activision giving up on that character and a potential new IP starring one of their skylander guys in a solo game adventure.
I played Spyro 1, 2 and 3 back to back this year. They're still great, even if a little bit too easy at times. I'd love a new Insomniac-style one with a Stewart Copeland soundtrack, that'd just be glorious.
Are you people mentally damaged or what? How is a stupid petition news? Why would Activision care about an online petition? Are you serious?
Let the 90s go kids.
Backstreet's back! Alright!
Spyro and Crash are infinitely better games than most released today.
I'm all for Spyro and Crash to come back to Sony, but don't expect NaughtyDog and Insomniac to go back to these series. They've both stated that they've moved on to different franchises. But if they can give the franchise to someone trustworthy like Sanzaru games or Sony Bend, everything will be just fine.
Sanzura, nah chill. Sly Cooper 4 had bad boss fights rather it was too easy, one of the characters have change ego for no reason, disappear from the Sly gang and betrayed them for no reason, loading times kill the game, after that every thing else is good. Sonic Boom was bad that I don't want to talk about it. Rather I want Media Molecule or Santa Monica or Japan Studio or Ready At Dawn to make it since Ready At Dawn are made of old developers from Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter days at NaughtyDog. I don't think Sony Bend can do it since all their previous games were shooter.
Bring back my childhood.
This is something I can get behind 100%. The early Spyro games were the definition of comfy. First Crash is coming back, and now gamers want Spyro to return. This makes me very happy.
It will never happen due to his tie in to Skylanders..
if only it was possible, because you know skylanders
Yes please do this. I will sign. There aren't enough dragon games out there and Spyro was amazing. Make it like Dawn of the Dragon but way more open-world, bring back the co-op of course, and revamped modern art style, make him edgier. I'd easily buy that.
Let it go
YES a thousand times!! Spyro was the first Playstation IP I ever saw and played as a kid :) Let's support this petition everyone! It's just a minute of your time for something great potentially brought back to Playstation: http://www.thepetitionsite....
I dont care who makes the game on what platform. I just want Spyro back! I still play the PS1 games to this day with my friends, its just 100% fun. A remake/remaster would be awesome too.
Aside from nostalgia, Spyro has no place in modern gaming for us who grew up with it aside from perhaps introducing it to the next generation. I know that I have no interest in the series as a gamer anymore. It is not like Mario or Sonic where I can replay it as an adult and not feel autistic, unlike Crash and Spyro. I feel like something about Mario and Sonic is more timeless, for everyone. To each their own, though, and bring the disagrees.
Same here, As a teenager when Crash & Spyro were released, i didn't have any interest to them so i don't care they're back or not. I want to know that all of you who want Spyro & Crash back were 10 years old or less back then?. And will you honestly question yourself that "do i really want them back?".
As a teenager when they were released I can certainly understand why you'd have zero interest in them, they only really appealed to children, tweens at most. I was 11 so Spyro was pretty cool to me. However, I don't like Barney or Spyro or G.I Joe or Curious George or Power Rangers anymore, they're cool for nostalgia, but who really wants to engage with that stuff as grown men? It's certainly not as bad as those Bronies, but some things are made for kids, not "everyone" like Pac-Man or Mega Man are. Can't outgrow Metroid and Zelda, you know? Anyway, that's my opinion.
@KentBenMei That's exactly what i meant. We're adult now. Our favorite now are games like Uncharted, GOW, COD, The Witcher, etc. If Spyro or Crash with the same concept as 20 years ago coming back. They're aimed not for you (us) anymore, they're for your (our) kids.
In all honesty, I remember Spyro (and even Crash) being "meh" games and not even all that fun. I think gamers could do without a return of Spyro.
Spyro i agree with but Crash was super fun and really original next to all the Mario 64 copycats
Spyro 2 is still to this day one of my favourite games of all time. I would love to see him come back on PS4!
