I wonder why they didn't just create their own character, though. Did Naughty Dog create a great game and Sony decide they wanted it? I mean he was just some orange mouse in pants. Any one of us could come up with a better mascot.

Crash was successful. Their character may not have been successful, these kind of successes only happen so often.

But they had Crash as a mascot before the game even came out. They had him outside of Nintendo headquarters in advertisements calling out Mario. They should have made their own character rather than pushing a Universal Studios title.


But I don't know the history. I need to do some research and see why things went the way they did. It had to be a slap in the face seeing their defacto mascot on competing hardware.
