You can do both ways, royalties (or LOYALTIES as you call them for some reason) or straight out sell the rights to use the character.

You can I know someone that is outside of Capcom afairs entirely and bought the rights to use Dante in anything promotional.

They didn't own the Character outright but owned some kind of licensing or distribution rights, otherwise the original titles could've been multiplat.

Theoretically, they should've been able to renew that license throughout the years.

I guess that wasn't the case since Activision doesn't do good business with Sony not to mention they don't have a good business relationship.  If anything Activision would make more Crash games exclusive to X-Box before they do business with Sony.

i Believe that they had a publishing agreament with universal and when Vivendi Activision bought out the gameing side of univeral that agreament ended the only way for sony to of got the rights is if they bought out universal but sony didn't exactly have type of purchase compared to Vivinde

They said crash isn't in it. Multiple times. By saying there are 20 characters. By saying it takes two to tango.

So its not about the price of the character rather how much of the sales would go to the IP holder

Playstation sig
