Sony?s PlayStation used to have few famous characters connected with its consoles. Characters like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, Jak and Daxter and a few others, we recall fondly and have not seen for quite some time. But now, it looks like the company might be ready to bring some of them back to life.
?In concept, it is something we?ve been thinking about and discussing, and this is a shift for us,?
Andrew House, SCE (Sony Computer Entertainment) president and group CEO told The Telegraph when asked if there?s a possibility to bring back Spyro The Dragon or Crash Bandicoot.
?We?ve started to say that maybe there isn?t anything wrong with going back and looking at the characters that people still talk about, that were a big part of either their childhood or their youth. I definitely wouldn?t close the door on that.?
It?s really great to hear that Sony is willing to bring back some of the characters we used to love, but a new Spyro The Dragon or Crash Bandicoot is not something that is up to the company alone.
Apparently, Activision owns the rights for both Crash and Spyro?s series. In the form of spin-off Skylanders, Spyro The Dragon is still a huge earner for the company, and also, Activision indicated last year that the company is still interested in bringing the infamous Crash Bandicoot back to life.
So, it is not as if all SCE has to do is ask Activision nicely. As a matter of fact, the company is guarding Crash Bandicoot?s license tightly, it won?t even allow the character to be a part of Naughty Dog?s fan art design contest in celebration of its 30th anniversary.
On the other hand, aside from the PlayStation Move Heroes, we haven?t seen any new game starring Jak and Daxter since 2009. The characters are?still owned by Sony.
How about you guys? Which PlayStation characters would you like to see again on the PlayStation 4?
