No way!

If this is true couldn't it open the door to Crash Bandicoot games again?

I still play the first one on my PS. Soundtrack is amazingly good.

Oh come on! people were not expecting Crash to show up? he's one of the obvious for the roster.

Can we get a source on this picture? Just posting a picture and asking "is this real?" isn't helping.

Irrelevant of the accuracy of this, Crash better be in that game. I don't care what Sony needs to do, they need to get Crash in the game.

That's cool if he's in there, but it sucks if this is a real leak.

Would someone please explain Crash's appeal? He's like the adult Gary Coleman of video games at this point.

I'm kinda shocked that people seemingly still have some sort of affinity for Crash.

I imagine most of us here grew up with Crash, just like a lot of people still have affinity for Spyro.

It's called childhood. Most of us spent ours with Crash.

There are going to be plenty of characters in this game owned by other publishers. That means nothing.

@Cloudenvy: True, but most of us also grew up with sonic. And pretty much everyone throw's sonic under a bus. Its been awhile since there have been any real notable crash games too. I figured in most people's minds he was kinda in the same space of sonic. Old mascot hero who hasn't had a good game in ages but used to be loved.

That's because, while under the watchful eye of Naughty Dog, Crash Bandicoot games were very well-made, simple and fun 3D platformers. Some of the best of their time, I'd say. I know I spent countless hours with Crash.

@Demoskinos: I think people haven't thrown Crash under the bus because the shittier games was made by an entirely different studio and publisher, with Sonic's case it's the same name as it has always been. I bet if Naughty Dog treated Crash like Sonic Team treated Sonic it'd be the exact same reaction.

@Cloudenvy: In fairness to sonic "Sonic Team" hasn't been the same for ages either so might have well been another dev making it.

Crash was the mascot for the original Playstation. He was positioned as Sony's equivalent to Mario and Sonic, of course people would want a Sony fighter to have him in it.

He's the Mario or Sonic for kids that grew up with an original Playstation.

@Demoskinos: True, which is why I said it was always under the same name. I think as long as that developer is called Sonic Team, the average person will probably regard it as the exact same team that made old Sonic.

I don't know why everyone is so worried. Of course they'll include Crash, it's just a matter of PR timing or DLC.

I'm guessing it's more a matter of agreeing to any monetary demands that Activision makes.

@Spoonman671 said:

I remember that commercial.

I also remember that the last game I recall Crash being in was a poor man's Mario Party on the DS. Hard times he fell upon.

I feel like I've been generation gapped, and I was a teenager when that game came out.

@Hailinel: Those first three games are really great. They're fun platformers with great gameplay and an amazing soundtrack. Crash is super likeable too. It's hard to be explain but it probably has to do with his big eyes and smile. His animations are excellent and there's a really strong sense of humour in the series. It's charming and fun with just the right amount of challenge.

Also, I think his commercials were really good.

That crash doesn't really seem to fit in with the rest of the screen to me. Not as well as I think it would. So I'm not convinced by this picture. I hope he's in it though, Crash is my boy!

Probably real. It's Crash Bandicoot. He was THE mascot of the PS1.

The appeal of Crash are his death animations, and straight forward design, i guess.

Shadow looks very off. So does the lighting on Crash in comparison to the other characters.

...Also is there a dude in the background?

I don't get why Crash is just an announced character already, whether that screenshot was fake or not. Spyro's got the Skylanders thing, sure I guess, but I mean geez, what the heck is activision doing with Crash lately? I can't say he's exactly been in any Best Buys recently. If activision won't let the character they haven't used in what seems like ages in a game that is well-aimed to be a Sony history lesson, then they ARE the worst.

He appears to be off the plane of the other characters but aside from that between the character dropped in there, the 4p tag, the portrait down at the bottom and the light reflection of the screen covering up any imperfections this is a masterpiece if it's fake.

Looks hella fake to me, the coloration is all off, and the extreme cropping of the picture is suspect.

Also I'm too old to give a shit about Crash.

Man, you kids.

I've seen far more convincing fakes. The John Cena picture is more convincing for crying out loud.

I wouldn't rule him out appearing in the game, but this definitely isn't proof of it.

The original looks fake as hell. The lighting is all wrong and he's a lot further into the Z axis than Fat Princess is.

@SamFo: That's also a fake. It's a good fake that gets peoples hope up but still a fake.

That looks pretty fake to me, but I still want Crash to be in the game. Sony will shit the bed if he and Spyro aren't in it.
