Why do people keep quoting bruceleeroy? Is he an insider or like verendus or something?
I would be so hyped for a crash game that isnt a cash in. It just makes sense. And why stop at nostalgia? To hell with everybody saying just have some on rails running away from boulders. People dont really know what they want until they see it in a lot of cases. Why not try to make a groundbreaking? Try to rival nintendo in quality and reimauine it for the ps4, not just a rehash thats pretty. Everybody wins.
I don't think he works for Sony like Verendus obviously does but he's verified.
Seems pretty obvious there's something Crash related coming at E3 but I just can't see Activision letting go of any of their IPs. So my pessimistic guess is the same one I made a while ago, Activision will publish it as a budget title like Tony Hawk 5 and Guitar Hero Live...
This has probably been mentioned already, but I'm sure they're waiting to announce after UC4 releases IF ND is developing the new game. Layden also wouldn't have been able to wear that shirt given licensing restrictions unless they had rights to promote the image, so a Crash game by Sony is basically a given at this point.
Ted Price literally just went on stage and said that people obviously still like cartoon character games because they sell well for Insomniac. It's not impossible, and I really don't see the point in these kind of "Why do you guys like THING? Why do you want THING?" posts.
We need to get a poll going about whether or not Gaffers think Sony owns the rights to Crash now. I don't have much rationale behind this decision admittedly, but the way I see it, Layden wouldn't be wearing a Crash Bandicoot t-shirt on stage if the IP was still owned by Activision.
I was pretty excited when I saw the shirt. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't at least a little let down when the conference ended without Crash.
Hopefully this is hinting at Sony actually acquiring the rights for Crash back. I really don't want another Activision title after Mind Over Mutant and Crash of the Titans. I would take another Traveller's Tales game, though. They made my favorite entry in the series:
Give it back to TT Games so they can make a proper Twinsanity sequel. Open world with linear stages, a theater of interesting characters, and "gimmick" modes that are still platforming (and not racing/swimming/flying).
I feel like if Naughty Dog was back at the helm there would be a severe backlash from people who only know ND for Uncharted and TLOU. Heck, I feel like even some Playstation diehards who were there since day 1 would consider it a "waste" of ND's talent these days.
