(Rumor)(spoilers) this Possible UC4 Easter Egg oh boy

For reference, here is the Naughty Dog artbook's copyright information:



Nowhere to be seen in the game.
But they do credit all of the Uncharted IPs as belonging to Sony.... so why don't the credits say "Crash Bandicoot is a registered trademark of SIAA" or whatever?
 
Im trying to remember here what are all the signs that point to a Crash Bandicoot revival?

First was this


then the ones I remember are Shawn Layden shirt, the Robomodo thing, NECA Toys dude and now this. What are the other ones? (apart from the insider info we have)
Multiple twitter shenanigans.

Shortly after the PS4 launch, Cerny mentioning that he was going to "go back to my gaming roots" (can't remember which website was interviewing him - was a video) and although it might be a stretch, it he was thinking of a game in particular I doubt it'd be Marble Madness.

During the PS4 reveal Cerny walked on stage to the music of Crash.

And probably a few other ones I forgot.

Fair point. I think if Sony actually owns the property then they don't necessarily need to include that information, FWIW, but I'm not a lawyer so don't quote me on that. Other people's stuff needs to be marked, of course.

I dont think Cerny said he was going back to his roots, just that his next project would be smaller in scope and budget, something more like an indie game, not beeing indie of couse bc it would be funded and published by Sony
 
I can see the E3 reveal being the scene from U4 where Nate plays Crash 1. He suddenly stops playing, saying this old game is terrible/outdated and pulls out a PS4 copy of the new Crash game. He puts in and we see a gameplay trailer for the game.
 
I'm also looking forward to seeing all the typical posts on here saying "You're getting over-hyped." "Crash isn't coming back." "Who cares about Crash anyway?" ect. ect.

That would be the perfect way to reveal it.

This would be too perfect so it's not happening lol. I am trying to contain my hype levels lol.

Of course. It comes with the program. It was done with the trifecta from last E3. It will happen to Crash too.

"Why are you so excited for something I do not care about?!?!"

Must... not... get... HYPED!!!

Also... that is one creepy ass looking Crash on that cake, looks more like a werewolf... O_O
 
It's funny how potentially huge this is, AND THIS IS ALMOST ALWAYS ON THE FRONT PAGE, but it hasn't leaked, referring to the Crash shit.
No-one spilled the beans of this thread.
 
oh man just think about all the possibilities Sony would have with the Crash IP

Crash Kart Racing
Cameo on Games like All Stars
finally the big mascot back - while i love games like Ratchet & Sly Cooper, they never had or have the charisma/popularity/sucess of Crash.

And seeing those Ratchet and Clank sales - there is no doubt that a good CB Game could reach even higher numbers

I mean, this thread is a leak that spilled the beans. It's just that nobody has posted about it outside of this thread.
 
Even the retrospective thread had it. I tires me how vindictive people are towards this game. It baffles me.
Even the Sonic Retrospective threads didn't have 'Sonic should die' until at least the 20th post or something........

I guess people hate the popular thing?

Leaks into NeoGAF happen almost daily
What's interesting is that no-one has spoiled this thread

100 to 1 the Activision Crash games put a bad taste in mouths
