UPDATE: Article has been updated to reflect that Crash Bash is also mention briefly in the PS China post, Thanks Numbuh1234 from TVtropes

Also, the last part of the article contains a big spoiler from Uncharted 4.

Every time I go out somewhere to enjoy the weather with friends/family, and do something interesting for once, something about Crash starts hitting the internet, literally (most of the time).

You’re wondering: “Why didn’t you report on this earlier from the site, why on the Twitter account?” Well, that’s because it would be painful to write articles on the touchscreen of a 5.5 inch smartphone, really inconvenient for such news.

Anyways, before I provide you with a “Google” translated version of the article on this article, I would like to address that their official article skips post-PSX era but does mention one thing: A spoiler in Uncharted 4*, which in my opinion, is a tad strange and suspicious when other division of Playstation globally has ever done things such as tweets, throwbacks, cameos, Shawn wearing a goddamn Crash T-shirt, you name it.. but never did we have a Playstation division do an official Crash Bandicoot history article years after Naughty Dog done making Crash games after CTR (Part of a 4-games deal with Universal Interactive) with Universal handing it to Cerny Games and Eurocom for one PS1 game, “Crash Bash” before TT picks it afterwards.

Thanks to ZhugeEX for tipping us about the articlePat for asking him for the link..

Below is the translated article: (Using Google Translate, if you speak Chinese (Traditional/Simplified) and understand how to translate it into legible English, please talk to us via our official Twitter or Facebook)
