    SCEI CEO comments positively on Crash Bandicoot & Spyro the Dragon revivals

    Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House has today commented positively on the potential of a revival for some of gamers' best-loved PlayStation franchises - namely Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.

    Speaking in an interview with English broadsheet 'The Daily Telegraph', PlayStation's head honcho responded to a query posed by the interviewer who asked about the intrepid marsupial and dragon's return in the face of Nintendo's re-use of the same characters time-and-time again.

    "This is very dangerous ground. In concept, it is something we've been thinking about and discussing, and this is a shift for us. We've started to say that maybe there isn't anything wrong with going back and looking at 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," said House.

    The re-use of characters from the original PlayStation era hasn't been commonplace for Sony over the last fifteen years - much to the annoyance of certain sects of the fan base. Following the rumours of Crash Bandicoot's return right around the time of the PlayStation 4's launch, it looks as if it's all gaining traction once again; this time with his fire-breathing purple friend, too.

    Do you think Sony should bring back Crash and/or Spyro to the PS4?

    I'm all for a new spyro but crash I cannot imagine many improvements on that other platformers such as Knack are already doing.

    I can see a reboot of both series. But whether or not they'd be as good as the original ones? No... I've never played the ones after the PS1 (so my games were Spyro 1,2 + Year o/t Dragon and Crash 1,2,3, CTR, Bash) but I hope that if there'll be a remake, Naughty Dog will be contacted for it and such. Reason? I LOVE naughty dog's games. Uncharted, Last of Us, original Crash series. If they can make a game alike the original Crash series and that with the graphics of Uncharted 4? I'm ordering my PS4 that instant.

    They would have to get these right though. There is far too much love for those to half arse it.

    I'd like to see a new Croc game too!

    Naughty Dog is talented, for sure. Hopefully a remake of Crash Bandicoot doesn't get in the way of their other projects. I didn't spend a lot of time playing Spyro the Dragon but if I remember correctly it's a more open-ended platformer like Banjo Kazooie?

    Pretty doubtful ND would make it. During the "press tour" for TLOU (at least I think that's when it was) they talked about how they started pre-production for Jak 4 and ultimately decided that wasn't something they wanted to do anymore and that it just didn't really fit with them as a studio. On top of that I find it way less likely they'd do Crash, which is even less story driven than Jak.

    Quite honestly it would be a massive waste of that studios talent to spend even just a year making something like Crash. There's plenty of other good studios out there looking to make a name for themselves that would be able to handle that series.

    Crash with graphics like U4? That doesn't fit at all. Crash has a totally different style visually.

    I liked playing both when I was a younger but I'm not sure I would get either one if they brought them back. It could only be done if both were given proper justice.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    Doesn't seem impossible reviving Crash at some point.

    need to also bring back Legend of Dragoon. Sony keeps attempting at FPS and keep failing, i'd rather they failed at making more JRPGs.

    Sony might as well buy the IP from them, if they haven't already.

    Yeah from some of the news recently Sony seems keen on reviving the franchise.

    You bring up an interesting point. They recently said that "it's never off the table" but that it's the same reason why we don't see a new Jak & Daxter as they "don't know if it's playing to our strengths right now".
