Crash Bandicoot (PSone)

Marsupial madness

At one time, Crash Bandicoot was the face of the PlayStation brand, but through licensing headaches and the creation of other characters, the spunky star hasn’t quite gone on to fill the role of Nintendo’s Mario or Microsoft’s Master Chief.

Sony's About to Get Really Aggressive in China
