Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumour: Crash coming back...as Playstation Exclusive Skylanders

I thought they canceled skylanders??Edit:nvm it was disney infinity LUL

I don't think this really makes sense. Certainly it's possible. But the people that remember and want crash are too old a demographic to go out and buy skylanders for him. Hoping this is just a rumor otherwise our shot at getting something decent pretty much just died.

This whole Crash Bandicoot thing might become the biggest troll in video game history. If Sony announces on stage that Crash is back as an exclusive PS4 character in Skylanders then that would be quite the "fuck you" IMO. Unless it's exclusive because Sony now owns the IP.

The spoiler part would make it worse, if sony not owned the IP you can blame Activision.

If this is announced at Sony's E3 stage, I'd blame them for being too stupid to realize that their fans would be outraged by this.

If Sony owns the IP they're 100% also making a new game. No reason to buy the IP otherwise.

This sounds worse than Conker in Project Spark...

But the PS4 exclusivity makes in unlikely for me, Crash was multiplat after PS1.

Would only make sense if Sony bought the ip.

This.

First, Spyro was relegated to a supporting character in a pay-to-win toys-to-life empire. Then Donkey Kong and Bowser were wedged in. And now Crash? It just never ends. 

If this rumor is true, of course :P

If this rumour is true, then fuck Sony as well. It's so unbelieveably stupid, the way they've been teasing Crash. It wouldn't even be so bad if they were just teasing it, but in reality nothing happened, but this? It makes no sense. The people that care about Crash don't care about Skylanders. Why on earth would they do this? This is way, way, way worse than Nuts'n Bolts, the Conker DLC for Project Spark and Federation Force combined. Dammit. Why can't they do the frikkin obvious. Ratchet & Clank just released to record sales for the franchise. That should be proof that there is a market for these games. But nooooooo.

 

This genuinely pisses me off. This doesn't happen often from video games news.

Yeah, you're right. Maybe it's just a crazy, unfounded rumor, though. We can hope.

But if true, it's so bad. And so emblematic of this generation. Look at Activision's track record alone: Skylanders keeps introducing more and more paywalls, and more and more chunks of plastic specific to different editions and consoles; Destiny launched with a bare-bones vanilla version with content designed to be sold later at a premium price; Tony Hawk 5 - 'nuff said; Call of Duty milked dry.

Folks need to stop getting into bed with Activision. 



I'm actually super okay with this.

I always thought Crash was super overrated. This means that it won't waste a big reveal slot.

And we might also get The Last of Us 2 E3 (wishful thinking.)



I find it weird that ppl here just literally copy paste neogaf topics.

that said, this doesnt mean that Sony doesnt have Crash. Could easily be side promotion (which makes a lot more sense then Sony just getting the IP) considering a Crash game wouldnt come out until next year.
