"Q: Did you try for Crash Bandicoot at all? Crash was so synonymous with the PlayStation brand early on even though he’s at Activision now.

A: Yeah. I have to say it’s not that Superbot is some independent developer chasing down third-party characters. This is a negotiation that happens on a much higher level than Superbot, with Sony and Activision, these two giant companies.

And I completely understand how big and important a character like Crash is to the PlayStation universe. We want to make it clear to fans that we understand how important a character Crash is to the PlayStation universe. Obviously, we try everything in our power to try and get characters like Crash.

Q: Are there any secret characters in the game that you still haven’t revealed?

A: Playable? No. We’ve got our 20 launch characters and they’re unlocked from day one. We’ve got some secrets, but not on our playable roster. If I really dig Sly Cooper and he’s not unlocked on day one, that’s going to be a bummer for me, so we want to make sure the characters are available."

I completely agree, I would hate to have to unlock any characters.

We got the important first party characters Kratos, Drake, Cole, Sackboy, Sir Dan, Spike, Radec, ect.  There isn't too much missing without Crash, they covered what we need for the most part so Crash being in the game wouldn't much of an improvement but more of a "here's a third party multiplatform character" addition people are complaining about.

Nothing changes, no. But it is interesting that SuperBot themselves has no say in who gets in.

What I'm getting from this is understanding why everyone laughs at PlayStation fans.  Their number one requested isn't 1st party and isn't exclusive.  Characters such as Ico or Wander should be at the top of the most wanted list, characters far more deserving of the spot than Crash.
