Damn why did Sony back then not buy the rights for Crash and Spyro?


We all thought that it would happen near the start of the PS4 generation, there were hints..... tshirts and symbols and stuff.

It's an utter shame that the people who created these iconic characters don't own them.

They probably: “Nobody is going to acquire this expensive and bloated publisher” but I guess they were wrong. After Microsoft announced Bethesda deal in 2020, I low-key hoped for Sony to buy ToysforBob outright + Spyro and Crash IP. This actually pretty annoying that future instalment becoming exclusive to Xbox…

Very nice, pity we didn't get a single PS5 faceplate in Ireland yet....

I love the controller.
It’s probably only available per import. It’s sometimes frustrating that Japan gets all this cool stuff exclusively. I would buy it and probably a lot of folks too.

Edit:

Blitzz is incorrect. The bundle is being sold in multiple regions but the custom accessories and plates are not and are only a limited run restricted to japan.

Japanese work culture sucks.

It really does, why the hell would anyone work in such conditions? All the hard work in the world and the Japanese economy has still been a shambles for 20+ years.... it's just terrible to see peoples hard work ethic be abused like that.

If this would have been Sony, they would have made a witch hunt…

That could explain Arkane‘s performance.
Everything Microsoft touches, will be ruined.

Deezy isn't an MS dev and sounds like a fool on his Twitter feed, Sadie's tweets didn't say anything about MS or corporate culture, sound more like her peer group just hate the game and are glad i failed.
