Kristine Steimer's Avatar + Posted by Kristine Steimer on Oct 07, 2013 // Sr. Community Specialist

Those poor, poor Colossi. All they want is be left alone to wander majestically, but if you want to save your lady friend, you’re gonna have to bring them down. I know. Take a minute to prepare your mental state, and then make sure your hard drive is ready for this awesome game when it becomes free for PlayStation Plus members tomorrow. There are also discounts on some Activision titles including classic titles like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.

All of these PS Plus benefits will be available after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, 10/8.

Are the Crash and Spyro games playable on Vita yet? I know they weren’t when PS1 Classics on Vita launched but surely that has been fixed by now?

@ SpooNManX

Seriously?

Do you not realize how many new subscribers there have been in the past 2 years? Besides, if all the whiners let their subscriptions expire like they always threaten to, then it wouldn’t be an issue…

And who are you to decide how much a game should cost? Did you make it? Do you have a game studio that needs revenue to stay in business? Do you have a family to feed that relies on the income generated from the sales of your game? No? Oh…

Did you ever stop to think that maybe Angry Birds is .99 on mobile phones because of the ridiculously large numbers of people who own them, which enables the publisher to sell the game at such a low price and still meet revenue goals? Did you factor in the expenses that went into the conversion work (including upgrades) to bring the game over to the PS3? Are you going to be like Ryumoaner and imply that corporate greed is afoot, when it’s not even close to being that?

And what is “two dollars and ninety-nine cents cents”? And “ninety-nine dollars cents”?

I’m gonna join my voice to the hundred others: I’d buy all the Crash and Spyro games if I didn’t had to play through Remote Play on my Vita.

Can we at least know what’s the hold up? People are asking for it every week since a whole year and Sony remains tight-lipped about it… Licencing issues?

POSSIBLE legal ramifications. Who knows for sure, but if I was asking Sony a question over and over again with no response, I’d probably go digging for clues around other parties that are associated with the content in question. You never know what you might uncover, depending on how clever you are. It might even be… an answer! Are you up for a little detective work?

Please!

It will be great if these Crash and Spyro games will be playable on my Vita. Also, could you please add Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops to the North America PSN Vita store?

I’m definitely no xbox fanboy… But just a heads up, I was watching hbo go and saw their tony hawk sale advertised. I’m not going to buy it, but you can save a buck if you want the game and revert pack. I’ll just wait for a better sale for ps+. Not getting my money this week sony, your loss.


161

+ Gamerzlimited on October 7th, 2013 at 8:47 pm said:

@fantasyplayer Oh, I thought your one of those people still do care to this day. I’ll respect your opinion though. I guess continue trying to ask the same request over and over again will eventually become tiring and probably Sony won’t even bother anymore. Since they’re finally doing a sale for those games, let’s pray that Crash and Spyro comes working on the Vita tomorrow. Even though I won’t care or even bother to put them on my Vita when I get one, at least it will make others happy.

+ avatarguy on October 7th, 2013 at 8:53 pm said:

I would also like to call for more ps1 classics on the vita, not just crash and spyro but future cop L.A.P.D. I’ve been putting off buying this game forever because I want it on my vita.

+ JPG2105 on October 7th, 2013 at 9:29 pm said:

Putting Crash and Spyro on sale without Vita compatibility is like a big F U from Sony to Vita owners. Especially to all the people that ask for Crash and Spyro every week. I’m disappointed in you Sony you should be better then this.

+ Alexx-NY on October 8th, 2013 at 4:26 am said:

In all honesty, customer support from Sony is APPALLING!
I’ve been a happy fan since recently, but seeing how Sony is unwilling/unable to resolve a SIMPLE issue re. a purchase I did in over 3 weeks (!!!) is just disgusting.
I paid for something and Sony simply doesn’t care to give me what I paid for.

And here no-one cares to reply either, just overall great customer service, really.
If anyone wants a PS4, I might cancel my preorder soon, so there will be one available.
Not that Sony would care of course. :/

I’ll buy Crash and Spyro, but it would sure be lovely if I could play all of them on my Vita.

+ DION3TO on October 8th, 2013 at 4:35 am said:

Can anybody tell me why some PS1 classics availabe in the UK Store are not in the US store? Is there any compatibility issue going on? I don’t understand that.

I’m questioning this because If I have a PS1 classic bought in the US Store via PS3 and transfer it to the Vita, it should workd properly, right? :D

I missed Shadow of the Colossus on ps2 and bought the digital hd version and I just can not get into it. Too bad there isn’t a way to trade off downloaded games some how……

Happy to see the sales on Spyro and Crash. I still have the disc of Crash 2, but I’ll probably buy the others, at least. Already have Shadow of the Colossus, but the sales make it a good week. Please try to run sales on the classics more often.

Isn’t it funny that they just answer a couple of post on the first page, and only posts that are patting them on their back? It’s really easy to say “We’re glad you enjoy it”

But of course it is so hard to actually do their job and answer questions, or at least to pretend like you care about your costumer in the slightest… I mean, we get it, you guys don’t know every thing that’s being asked and don’t have every answer, but you could at least say something: “Sorry, PS classics won’t work on your vita but we are working on it”, “You should be able to play your PS classics on your Vita soon” “Sorry we suck so much and NEVER EVER EVER answer any of the questions, only give crappy games for the IGC while EU gets just amazing stuff and yet we still want our paycheck everymonth without earning it”

You guys are just awful.

your famous @-#ole troll of the month is back to cause you people with vita some #ell.

Crash and Spryo are owned by Activsion

Spryo has skylanders now…

Crash i don’t know… and after playing his last 2 games mind over mutant and crash of the titans i can say the series is dead to me anyway… plus those games are old skool and fun but i so would love to see crash bash on NA PSN… but i’ll bicker about that a different time…

no matter how many times we beg sony…

we are never ever ever going see those games on PS Vita.

if you want them on the go get a gosh darn psp or better yet a old playstation 1 and a real disk of the games and deal with it!!

vita is not selling too well atm (i think…) even with the price drop… and also playstation plus ticked me off this month… so i hope sony makes up for next month…

also don’t forget Crash and Spryo are not or never owned by sony…

now i’m going just leave but i bet there’s going still be bickers about the crash spyro issue… so read me and deal with it!!

oh btw spryo 3 was the last great spryo game.

fav crash and spryo game is #2

crash=cortex strikes back
spryo=riptro’s rage

i’m done.

OHHHHHH Boy, reading through the Eu plus post and I think people are going to want to crucify the bloggers after they write about this one. First off the PS3 content is awesome there, but I’m not one to compare content, US does their best and I believe that.

The reason our people will flip is because they are cutting PS3 titles down to 2 a month. This will not sit well with people not becoming early adopters. I only hope people see the value in adding the PS4 titles through the online store for when they do get the PS4 they will have an extensive collection.
