Why are people thinking this means a Crash game is coming?

Naughty Dog featuring one of their IPs as an easter egg in their newest game...

It's a portent of nothing, they did it in TLOU, were people screaming about a new Jak game incoming then?
Jak is a Sony so no lawyers involved.

This required some money to exchange hands and people from different companies agreeing to terms. This is more significant, even if it ends up not going anywhere

Knack was not a platforming effort from Sony. Knack is not a platformer.

Also.....who's Ballsack Boy supposed to be?
If you don't even know what character I'm referencing then that just goes to show how an iconic platforming character like Crash Bandicoot has been lacking from Sony's repertoire.

"But playstation doesn't need a mascot."

They don't but it would be nice. Ricky Bobby was a good substitute for a few years but we have to go back.

I just realised you meant sackboy. Sackboy is cute. He's alright. Shame on you for turning his name into something so rude. FOR SHAME!

But yes, Sony certainly has been lacking a mascot character as iconic as Crash.

I don't see this as an indication that a new Crash game is happening (I think it's in fact happening, though). Maybe you can pick some ND game cases and Crash is just one of them.

Crash is back:
-The PSX shirt akin to FF7 at PSX 2014.
-The video before PS4 came out
-Insiders like Verendes Hinting at it
-A big toy Insider confirmed Sony was bringing Crash back yhis year at the NY Toy convention
-Various hints from Sony twitter.

Guys it's happening.

The IP is owned by Activision, Sony can't just throw Crash out there without their approval. He would've been in playstation all stars if they could.
Being in PSABR (requiring new models and assets) is way different than just using a picture of the original PS1 game which Sony still has the full rights to. They can do anything they want with the original games, they just can't make new stuff.

Share button can be blocked for pre release games. I think MGSV did that.
I got MGSV a few days before launch and I was able to take pics + video and save them on the PS4's hard drive but I wasn't able to upload them until launch day. Maybe I could have imported them to a USB stick to get around that but I never thought about it until afterwards.

This is just an image of Crash Bandicoot 1, which as far as I know, Sony has the full rights to. They sell it on PSN.
Naughty Dog always owned the source code for the PS1 crash games while the IP was Universal (now the IP is in activison's hands).


So for example Activison would not be allowed to port the PS1 games to another platform without getting the all clear from ND / Sony.

Likewise Sony cant do anything with those games without asking Activsion since they own the brand.


I guess a simalar situation might be Demons Souls. FROM owns the code but Sony owned the IP. So FROM took that code and made Dark Souls which was super similar but legally a different IP.

That's pretty damn cool, but I hope ND isn't working on it. I really like most of their output, but I was never a big fan of Crash so I'd rather see another studio handle it.

But they own that particular game. I'm sure they would have asked Acti beforehand anyways.
If they had the rights then it would've come out on vita in the states. I'm not buying that this is just a simple easter egg and not a tease for a crash game.

I'll spoiler tag in case others haven't paid it much attention.
Shit, already knew about this, but didn't pay much attention to the hand. It doesn't look like Drake's at all
