For me its Kratos. That dude is BRUTAL.
Who do you view as Sony's mascot?
I still feel like it's Crash. But, besides that, probably just Ratchet or Daxter. You can't have people dressed up as Solid Snake or Sackboy. That's just creepy, or scary. A giant Daxter might actually work. The only problem is that no one knows who the hell he is. Even more simple: there doesn't need to be a mascot for each system. The PS3 seems to host more mature games, and it would make sense that it doesn't have some big fluffy Otsel walking around shopping malls.
" Solid Snake has had games released on every Sony video game console, I think that pretty much ensures his mascot position. "I don't know, for him to be a mascot, I think he would at least have to be exclusive to Sony platforms, if not owned by Sony outright.
IMO, no one yet. If you think about it, no one has the mainstream recognition or universal appeal that Nintendo mascots like Mario and Zelda have. No one as famous as the Master Chief for Microsoft. Don't get me wrong, they have great characters and games, just no one as a mascot yet, because none of their characters have mainstream recognition yet.
Nintendo Entertainment System -1985

I don't see how your company's mascot can manifest that late in its history.
" If its current mascot I would say Rachet, since he's a likeable character and he has a cute look. Back in the PS1 days I could say Crash Bandicoot. "i wish it was still crash bandicoot :(
now it's either kratos or nathan drake.
I would actually love to side a proper forward platforming Crash Bandicoot again. It was this weird hybrid when people were leaving 2d and didn't know how to hand 3d, and you got this weird sort of forward moving sidescroller. Bring it back.
