I thought it was just stated it isn't coming? I guess we'll see.

Oh my God!!! They also posted a picture of an original Dualshock controller, DUALSHOCK 1 IS COMING BACK, YES THANK YOU SONY.

They also posted this:

OH MY GOD PLAYSTATION SNACKS CONFIRMED ALL PRAISE SONY.

For God sake people use some common sense, just because they posted a photo of something doesn't mean a damn thing.

@bobbetybob: The thing is, it's not just that tweet. They are advertising Crash in Brazil and Activision removed their Crash Bandicoot website.

Though I really don't care that much. I am not as nostalgic as many people are.

Why do this when Crash nostalgia is currently at such a high. They're either a dick teasing gang of Satans or something is in the works.

Activision just confirmed they own Crash still. The best case scenario I see is a proper revival that is PlayStation exclusive, but with Activision at the helm? Eh...

Crash Bandicoot is not even on Activision's listing of owned IP's. People have called to their support line asking for Crash and it's not in their archives anymore.

Playstation all stars sequel or a DLC or a new Crash game.

Well it could mean anything, they could still be in the process of selling the IP to Sony so they can still technically say its theirs but all these hints got to mean something.

hopefully we'll find out soon enough.

Knowing Activision the best Sony would get would be some timed exclusive DLC lulz

It would be a smart move for Sony and it could well be true, but a lot of these "hints" feel like people grasping at straws.

If Sony wants to pander to nostalgia appeal they should revive Psygnosis

Sounds like you need to calm down.

What purpose would Sony have to be tweeting about Crash? Nostalgia?

Something is up, we just don't know what yet.

Yes it may well be nostalgia. Did you not see the 4 The Players video they put out with all the little secrets to old franchise hidden in it? It also has Parapa The Rapper in there and Resistance and Ico and a bunch of other older games listed as "Playstation Memories".

I'm not saying it's impossible for this to be happening and it would be great if these were all hints leading to an announcement but apart from this Crash related stuff happening at the same time (which, you know, could just be because they launched a new console and are purposefully trying to tap into peoples nostalgia) it's not very compelling evidence.

#20 Posted by Floppy_Jim (25417 posts) -

Bruce Straley worked on CTR for those who don't know. The hints keep coming. It's a nice thought but chances are Crash will be shoved into the Skylanders franchise. A fate worse than death.

Correct, but those memories were one big montage. To single out Crash for specific tweets is a little more suspicious, especially with all the news circling around him. Parappa came "back" in PSASBR, Resistance was just this last gen, Ico and SOTC were brought back via HD collection. IMO, there is something more going on with Crash than pure nostalgia.

Destruction Derby was a favourite of mine. But they had plenty of games I've heard other gamers praise, Colony Wars, Shadow of the Beast.

Psygnosis certainly were titanic.

I would totally eat those snacks though, they're all delicious.

Ok it's official. Something is going on with Sony and Crash. idk if they are going to buy the IP or have an exclusive game with Activision as the publisher or what. But can they even use that image of Crash without the ownership or consent from activision?

#28 Posted by Netherscourge (16327 posts) -

What we need is a Crash Bandicoot Open-World Platformer.

too much teasing for it to be for nothing.

The twitt was taken down.

The dream is dead. ;(

No Crash, no Shenmue, not even Yakuza 5... Everything is a lie.

Seeing how they deleted it makes it even more of a tease... someone even asked Naughty Dogs on Twitter and all they replied with was "Greatness Awaits"

there has to be something going on with this franchise and Sony
