RUMOR: Sony is looking to buy Crash Bandicoot back from Activision?

Here is a link to the article: http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/s...rom-activision

There are other articles about the same thing over the web as well.

This rumor has been swirling around for the last couple weeks so you may have heard of it already. Just curious what you guys think. Reportedly, Sony is in the process of negotiating the Crash Bandicoot license with Activision.


I hope it is true, because having grown up playing the original trilogy on PS1 I am a fan of the character, and seeing him shuffled around between developers and publishers like an unwanted orphan over the years has been difficult. Especially since the last two games Crash of the Titans and Mind Over Mutant were just terrible. It's not like Activision is doing anything with him at all because he hasn't had a game in 6 years and they weren't in the process of making another anytime soon. They are awfully fickle about a character they aren't doing anything with. Looks like they would rather him stay dead than sell him to another company to revive and make money off, if this is true.

They better be doing something, otherwise they are just sitting on him for nothing. Guess I should have expected nothing less from the people who think Black ops Declassified is good enough to be a $50 game. These guys almost make Capcom look like saints by comparison.

If they do bring him back, I hope they at least make it like the old games and make the last two shitty games non-canon.

I'm pretty sure he could, there are still plenty of fans of good old fashioned linear platforming (even if they are mainly older gamers). In today's market saturated with shooter after shooter it would be quite refreshing to have a new Crash that plays like the old ones.

To have Crash Bandicoot come back and stand toe-to-toe with Mario again would be amazing. I, for one, would love to see it.
