Platformers don't sell.


Tell that to Mario.

People don't buy Mario games because they're platformers. They buy them because they're Mario games. If that's not the case, explain Rayman Origins to me.

AE=overrated. Edge/Undertaker is my favorite feud of the modern era, and perhaps of all time.

Crash is owned by Activision. Sony cannot do a thing about it.

Activision killed the Crash series for me. They also killed Spyro and turned it into a money grubbing toy collectible series.

No, I don't want another Crash. Crash is dead. Get over it and move on.


No, he isn't. Don't be pessimistic man, Crash be easily revived if Sony bought the rights back and told Naughty Dog to make a new one.

He's too locked up in the upcoming Spinlanders game.

There are three issues with this.

1) Most of the team that were in Naughty Dog in the early days including the co-founders that worked on the Crash games have now since left.

2) The Crash IP is owned by Activision. Rumors say that bidding to even allow Crash into All-Stars was too much for Sony. Plus the fact that Sony is barely sustaining themselves financially, they can't really waste that much money on a dead IP, which bring me to my next point.

3) Crash Bandicoot is dead. It has its nostalgia factor but it doesn't as well as it did in the 90's. I get it you love Crash, so did I, I had every game, but nowadays the title will probably be too costly just for nothing in return really.

lol @ thinking platformers games are still that big and will net that many sales


Mario
Rayman

Are you in a coma?


Woah, you named two whole series of a genre! Two!

No, platformers no longer sell that well. Mario is a Nintendo icon and a gaming legend. Mario games don't sell because they're platformers. They sell because they're Mario.

Rayman Origins is okay, but has sold what, 730,000 copies Global?

Platformers are mostly gone from the gaming mainstream.

I still have my fingers crossed for a Jak 4. Those games were my childhood, and if Naughty Dog would make just one more game I would be set.

They were gonna make Jak 4 but that ended up turning into The Last of Us.

I don't think Sony has much to say in what ND does.Just look at ND Vita support...
