Yep, turns out that I was right with being suspcious about this, although it did align with the fact that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy does support 4K on PS4 Pro, neither have we seen anything about it being 60fps (Aside from trailer) and being on PC (although if Activision goes ahead and announces it, that wouldn’t shock me). This video matches pretty closely the audio we have heard at the Off-screen footage video from the last post, strictly marked as a rumor, which we can confidently say that it has been debunked, though we don’t rule out a PC port possibility in the future just yet.
Thanks to Cultured Vultures and others who clarified this.
UPDATE: Nope, It was a Bulletstorm all along!
Notice: This is being labelled as a rumor since we don’t exactly have a definitive confirmation from either Activision or Sony. This bit is coming from potentially an unknown Rep speaking in the background and is not visible either way, so be attained about that at the time being. Take this with a grain of salt.
Alright. It has been quite lacking when it comes to off-screen footage for gameplay of the PAX East build of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, we have some on YouTube, sadly, no real picture of the Warp Room in full motion has been unearthed yet. But what’s this, “PS4 and PC”?
Well, yes, you can hear it in the background of this video starting at 0:05 very carefully (headphones recommended), we do know that the game is also 4K supported on PS4 Pro, but we haven’t seen confirmation before about it being 60fps yet (aside from debut trailer being 60fps in some parts). We are awaiting some clarification regarding that since this is still being inspected by me, personally speaking. It might be for another game since a ton of other games are being demoed as well…
Thanks to Enter the Dragon Punch for the tip.
Note: Even if this is dismissed or debunked, it has to be noted that this is sitting in almost every EB Games store in Australia, where you can also find a placeholder box of the game sitting on the shelves (Also, you can preorder it online as well).
So, the exclusivity debate still goes on, because why not… The latest in this saga is the curious placement of “PlayStation 4 Exclusive” badge on the banner promoting the remakes (Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy) found by Flare at one of the branches, note that the banner also includes Sony’s own PS4 top border header, perhaps this shouldn’t be over-analyzed as we haven’t received an official statement from Activision yet.
Following up on our theory about a Special Edition for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, we now have a new placeholder preorder page for a Special Limited Edition of the remakes collection on Amazon Italy. Sadly, there’s nothing really specific about what the Special Edition contains or means for the release. Stay tuned for more.

We reported on how Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy would be a exclusive for the PlayStation 4 (according to PlayStation Ireland, Vicarious Visions’ PR and several other sources/indications) and it will still being released on that platform first. But after clarifying this information by saying it will be exclusive, PlayStation Ireland removed their original Tweet and replaced it with the above one.
This indicates that Crash will be a timed exclusive for the PS4 and PS4 Pro in June, making me think this will be similar to deals like Rise of the Tomb Raider or Resident Evil 4 where it’s only on one platform first but months later it releases on other platforms.
Do Not Take This As An Official Announcement Yet Though; we could hear a more grounded statement from other divisions within Sony/Activision closer to launch. We will keep you all posted as this story develops.
