Sony To Bring Back An Old Franchise Tonight - Possibly Crash Bandicoot?

Watch this space.

It’s all heating up, the PS4 is out in the US in around about fourteen hours, and in just under thirteen hours from now they’ll be holding a PlayStation All Access show on Spike TV, revealing more PlayStation exclusives as the system launches.

According to a poster on Reddit, Kevin Pereira of the Deathsquad podcast leaked some info that Sony will be bringing back one of their biggest exclusives, and it has something to do with space.

It could be a new Colony Wars, but people are suggesting everything from Crash Bandicoot in space, to Uncharted in space or – perhaps more likely – PaRappa in space, as rumours point to a revival of that series. Maybe it’s Warhawk 2. In space. Oh wait, they already did that and it was somewhat disappointing.

Ignoring the “space” comments for a second, a keen-eyed NeoGAF user has spotted something really interesting from the PS4 launch trailer – a sign which appears to show Crash Bandicoot, with an arrow pointing to the Sony Computer Entertainment logo, off to the side of the video just after the 45 second mark. Could this mean that they’ve reacquired the Crash IP?


Speculate in the comments below – you’ve got a good twelve hours and 35 minutes to go.

    I don’t know how it would play today? They could go the Rayman route and keep it the same, but then it’d be a downloadable game not a full blown retail one. I don’t know. The reveal’s gonna be incredible.

    Given Knack’s recent reception , i’m not sure it’s a great idea bringing Crash Bandicoot back.

    I want The Getaway. Even more I want it to be GTA V in London as “The Getaway”. Does anyone remember the visuals from the PS3 reveal at E3 (i Think). Maybe they’ve spent the last several years getting that up to date for the PS4!

    The Getaway on PS4 would be a great bonus but it probably won’t appear.

    I hope it isn’t Crash. Spyro on the other hand… A proper Spyro. Not that Activision crap. Or Resistance.

    I doubt it will be anything Crash Bandicoot related (a lot of there other adverts have had nods to other Playstation games/franchises), but I’d love it if it were a new Crash Team Racing. The last Kart racers on PS3 have been pretty poor (Modnation, LBP Karting, F1 Karting etc, although Sonic All Stars is great on PC).
