Naughty Dog and Sony were involved with the original 3, so I think this game was made in COOPERATION with Activision. Naughty Dog and Sony own the games (Crash 1, 2, and 3), and Activision owns the NAME (Crash Bandicoot). So this game will likely always be Sony console exclusive, sorry to say.


I do not believe it will stay exclusive. Because if you remember what happened to games like Dead Rising 3 and Ryse Son of Rome. Microsoft Xbox brand claimed that both games where 100% locked Xbox One exclusives, but both would later come to PC a year later. And mind you, it is extremely rare for games from 3rd party to stay exclusive, because 99% of the time it is a timed exclusive, a semi console exclusive (one console along with a PC/Mobile ports to go along side.), or brand exclusive (Atlus with Persona 5), etc. So it makes me wherry because now and days when companies say things are exclusive. You can not trust their word on keeping their so called promise.


It's not really a question of them keeping their promise though. If Sony owns the rights to the original games then Activision can't release them on another platform without Sony's permission. And why would Sony give them that permission?


I will only believe it when they confirm it, because I do not trust most companies when it comes to broken promises. (I am looking at you Microsoft!)

Worth noting is that the original PS1 editions of the games are available for download on PS3. Downloads may be frowned upon here, but they're definitely cheaper than picking up the original discs if you happen to own a PS3.

Also worth noting that if you have a PSP then you can have those games on the go by connecting your PSP to the PS3 (the PSP eshop was shut down a while back but transfers from PS3 still work). They make good PSP games as for the most part you don't need the L2/R2 buttons and they were designed for a d pad anyway.

One thing I noticed after recently playing these three games is that the second and third games have aged very well. A lot of PSX action/platformer games haven't stood the test of time but the 2nd and 3rd games hold up incredibly well. They are still as fun as they were 15-20 years ago. Hopefully this remaster does the originals justice (and fixes a few of the issues with the original).
