There's more fuel to the fire that a Spyro the Dragon PS4 remaster could be on the cards sooner rather than later.
Yes thank you
Yes, please. Thank you. And please remake my childhood.
Please God let it happen. My very first PlayStation game
This! I remember it so well and it's one of my fondest memories, the game being a gift for me and my younger brother underneath the Christmas Tree. My parents knew nothing of consoles so I was asked to give the brand new PSX and the game a quick try before being wrapped in gift paper. The game IS Christmas for me ever since :)
Same! Spyro the Dragon was the first PS1 game I ever played
My first was Resident Evil.
Unfortunately mine was the movie street fighter https://m.youtube.com/watch...
Year of the Dragon was fricking awesome, as was Spyro 2. Spyro 1 was great as well.
Mine was Twisted Metal even though it was much bigger in the US and I am Irish lol.
...Where is the hint? What does it have to do with Spyro??
Spyro Trilogy Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash with online They have two more things they can do...but honestly they better put CTR and Crash Bash in one game letting it share the online matchmaking along with character customization if there's any.
That will be most addicted online ever family and friends will be back together again.
Or CTR fully updated with dedicated online servers and maybe new tracks/tracks from Crash Tag Team Racing, and Crash Bash updated with both old and new mini games to rival Mario Party and with online.
no, let them make a new crash game or a new crash bash game. We already have 3 great crash remasters. Time for e remake/sequel now if nsane does well like they hinted at
...Nah I'd rather have CTR and Cash Bash together first ...It's Crash Team Racing man
It would be a dream: first Crash, then Spyro when he was a great game. I hope they remaster the 3 first chapters like Crash :D not the other garbage.
I agree although the music in "Spyro 4" was still done by Stewart Copeland of The Police and so at the music was still great. :)
Ooohhh, please don't play with my hearth...
Game looks like it's doing very well indeed.
I'm sure I will get a ton of disagrees but I'm so much more happier with these remakes than a new FPS game. Bring on all the remakes! I wish these games would be remade: Tomb Raider trilogy, Gex EtG and DCG, Deathtrap Dungeon, Nightmare Creatures, Croc aaand would love to see Tekken 2 or 3 and Soul Blade.
You know, funnily enough I was replaying Bloodborne recently and I was thinking of how it had a similar vibe to Nightmare Creatures. I would love to see that game remade.
Yes, it had a very similar vibe to NC for sure. Bloodborne is pretty amazing.
Not so sure about Tomb Raider though. There are certain parts with the Crash remake where they had to revamp the controls a bit like the bike riding levels. Tomb Raider would look silly with a human chracter moving the way she does in those older games. Even the geometry of the levels would need a massive overall and this is evident from the TR Anniversary game. I would love this Crash remake to be brought to other cartoonish looking games though like Gex, Croc, Jersey Devil, Pandemonium or Medievil. Sony should set up a studio to start working on these like the guys that made Pain and the Jak and Daxter remasters last gen. Games like Syphon Filter, Nightmare Creatures, Resident Evil 2, Soul Reaver would need a lot more work because they are human characters in a game. For example, today we couldn't have the characters moving around a level stiffly like something from Driver 2, Excalibur 2555 AD or Crackdown 3 lol.
@andrewsquall You do know that they remade Resident Evil 1 for the current gen and they made it work with human characters. They are also working on RE2. So what you said would be an issue is in fact not an issue. So, I would still love to see Tomb Raider remade, especially 3 since it's my favorite. Nothing is impossible with hard work and good imagination.
Getting remasters of older titles is a must. They're much older and on ps1 that deserves remasters then ps3 games thats already in hd.
I agree man :) i prefer remasters/remakes of spyro 1-2 & 3, medievil 1 & 2, tomba 1 & 2, gex 2 &3, croc 1 & 2 and bugs bunny LiT & time busters than an ugly AAA game by EA, ubisoft or activision itself (exept for crash and spyro of course XD)
Give me Metal Gear Solid 1 on PS4.
Now THAT would be amazing!
Classics a coming! Sony keep it up and gamers will be happy. Maybe the popularity will inspire new iterations.
It's not Sony.
Spyro began on playstation. Plus i was alluding to these older games being brought back for a remaster, i.e. spyro, crash,...
I was hoping for this. I was a Nintendo kid back then so I played Mario64, banjo, Dk64 platformer goodness but Ps1 has some incredible ones as well that I never got to give a run. I collect but I can't will myself to play it on a Ps1 on a 55" my eyes melt and burn lol. So having it redone like crash will get my money just like I bought the Crash trilogy which is really good. It's funny how these remakes are getting the gaming community excited, that gen had some incredible platformers and I'd welcomes them all back shoot even Gex the Slick talking Gecko. Can't hate on greatness Nintendo, Sony, and Sega always brought there best foot forward back then and I believe that era of gaming was the best. Ps1 was and still is the King of the Rpg/Jrpg, Sega like Ninty had there own uniqueness blended with a little more attitude, and Nintendo no intro needed just 3 letters M64
I hope so I wanted a spyro remake more than crash I still play spyro frequently on the vita and ps3 to date it's one of the only original ps1 games that holds up to date but could use a coat of paint
Same here, I would take Spyro over Crash any day (although I loved J&D more than Ratchet and Clank then). I think the reason Spyro holds up so well is due to that insane technique Insomniac used on PS1 hardware where you can see everything far off in the game with no horrible draw distance clipping in place at all. The closer you get to things in Spyro, the more the textures and colours fill in on them seamlessly.
While Crash Bandicoot no doubt was the larger icon of the two, Spryo imo had the better series of games. Spyro was so fun to play back in the day and a trilogy re make just like the one we just got from Crash would be very much welcomed. Maybe Sony makes the announcement at this years PSX?
Please God I need Spyro 2
This seems like why they don't want backward compatibility. Anyway PlayStation trying to be nostalgia station this generation? Crash. Shadow of colossus. Shenmue. FF7. They already rereleased ratchets remake. Now this. I'd be personally most excited for a remade jax and daxter!!
this is all Activision's doing. why are you even mentioning Sony? is it because Xboners aren't getting any love with quality remasters and remakes lately? jealous much?
You must be a child. Or a really sad, mentally handicapped adult.
@badz Wow. You seem defensive. I'm not jealous. Just point out that from a business perspective it's smart to not offer backward compatibility. (I'm calling sony's business moves smart- and you will feel need to defend hence ur being defensive) it behoves Sony and their partners to re release games likes his since it's unlikely people will by old system and old copy of game. So they provide a convienient way to access these games and that will help encourage sales. Good for business. Ps. I'm not even mentioning Xbox in my comment. And your harping on it. Seems you maybe the one jealous of the backward compatibility feature if anything. All the way back to OG Xbox now by the way. And I'm only mentioning it now In Response to your comment.
Not sure why you're getting hate I didn't read that comment as anti-Sony?
Haha I used to wonder too but then I realized it's true the reputation this site has as a Sony fanboy haven. Anything that doesn't glorify holy Sony will get disagrees. Gotta give it to them tho it's nice to see such loyalty. They really love Sony.
talking about no backwards compatibility is not a shot towards Sony? how blind can you be? and if you think I'm delusional, what does Activision has to do with PS4 not having BC? none and the only reason BC is even mentioned here is because he was taking a shot at Sony. simple as that.
You are clearly taking a shot at Sony. This seems like why they don't want backward compatibility. As in you mean Sony. Unless you are say Activision is the one that doesn't want BC. Trust me anyone with a brain knows what you are talking about. You are basically trying to blame Sony for something Activision is hinting at. Many people already here, know Sony does not own either Crash or Spyro. But please tell us more, about how Activision choice to remastere old games, is the reason why Sony doesn't want BC?
Tbh remasters are better than bc when it comes to ps1 games. Most ps1 games graphics haven't really aged that well, or the controls.
If Sony says no but never really wants BC why do they keep making people pay for remastered old games?
Maybe blame the company that owns the IP, not Sony
Sony made people pay for a remaster? Didn't know they had so much control over how people spend their money. Remasters do require some work, so it's reasonable that they'd charge for them. AFAIK though, Sony has only had a few remasters this gen. There have been quite a few from other publishers though.
Ooooooohhhh, pls be true
Please don't butcher the mechanics like you did in the Crash remasters
butcher the mechanics? are you playing the game on remote play? The games work best on the DPad but work very well on analogs. Also good timing is required to get used to the platforming jumps in the game, it was always like that in the originals especially Crash 1 (fortunately VV changed the camera angle in the Crash 1 remake/remaster to make the game slightly easier, but still have to watch out for the traps)
umm I have the original games and I compared crash 2 to the remake and the ps1 original is much better in terms of control, collision detection and gameplay mechanics
Incorrect, I played through the first and warped just before the trilogy released and played through the first and second on the remake so far. Git gud.
I disagree I completed all of Crash 1 yesterday in 2 hours with zero issues of controls. Hit detection is slightly off I'll give you that though.
@Kwok Look at this delusional clown denying facts. Go play the tiger levels in the Warped remake, then play them in the original. Come back to me and tell me they're the same, idiot
Please be true, please please a 1000 times YES
The original Crash 3 warped had a cheat code where if you pressed Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right Square, the demo for Spyro the Dragon would appear. Since the remake/remaster has a unified menu for all three games, and that apparently the developers Vicarious Visions left all the glitches in that were present in the originals, trying the code as seen in the video would only make the indicator disappear. Edit - although saying that VV 'left all the glitches in that were present in the originals', playing the remaster/remake over the past few days I noticed certain tricks that I used to use playing the originals back in the day have now been removed (for example the trick at Tomb Time where (before you got the awesome powers from double jump onwards) you could jump alongside the lion statue to slowly get to the purple wall with a Aku Aku mask box in front of it and back again, that has been removed in the updated versions)
... So you enter a code - more a pattern - that was originally used for... something, and because it does nothing now means that... something is going to happen later? Dfuk...?
PLEASE remaster it. I never finished the ps1 classics when I sold my ps3. I regret selling it.
You sold your PS3? How are you going to play all of those good games without BC?
Oh well, at least he can play a ton of new games. :D
I really doubt this, a cursor vanishing after a particular input being the sign of a Spyro Remaster is reaching pretty high
I'd buy it day1.
Sony Thank you so much for these remakes. Great games never gets old.
I would cream myself if this were to happen
What is it with all the remastered games this gen? Why can't we have new ones? Give us a new crash or Spiro game rather than a remastered one.
Ummmm... Activision that's why. Do you really think that they are capable of delivering a GOOD new entry into the Crash and Spyro series? Activision will point to Skylanders if you want a new Spyro game. And Activision doesn't have much faith in themselves seeing as they haven't made a new Crash game in years.
Testing the waters is my guess, platformers have been cast aside in favor of FPS games for a while.
