Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida Doesn’t Know Why Shawn Layden Wore The Crash Bandicoot T-Shirt On Stage at PSX

So Layden was just trolling fans, then.

Yesterday, when Shawn Layden took the stage at the PlayStation Experience keynote to present, you could almost hear a collective gasp from the audience- the dude was wearing a Crash Bandicoot shirt. Surely this, just the latest in a long line of (inadvertent?) Crash related teases from Sony, meant something? Was today going to be the day when we would finally get the announcement of a new Crash game on the PlayStation?

As it turned out, that didn’t happen. If the Crash T-shirt was a tease, no one, including Sony, knows what it was a tease for. In a question and answer session that was aired live on Twitch with Greg Miller’s PS I Love You, Sony Worldwide Studios’ Shuhei Yoshida admitted that he had no idea why Layden had worn the shirt he had worn- Yoshida hadn’t even known that Layden would be wearing it.

Layden, mate, you’re playing with fire here. Never lead fans on like that- just ask Microsoft and Conker fans how that turns out.

    Seems more like he’s ripping off Phil Spencer or maybe just trolling.

      Your comment is the dumbest comment here.

    Maybe he wore the shirt because he felt like it and because he liked the game. Your concerns over another mans attire is quite disturbing.

    You get dumber and dumber with each article Pramath. LOL

      I suspect he wore it to take the attention away from the fact Sony had nothing worthwhile to show at PSX.

    • KoopaXross .

      Funny how they put this on FF7 trailer presentation which overshadowed the t-shirt as it was the most interesting part of PSX.

    It’ll just be a nostalgic nod to PlayStation’s history.

    If I was them I’d do that type of marketing more often. Tap into the 90s nostalgia.

  • Mr Xrat

    They’re milking nostalgia for marketing reasons, same as why Uncle Phil keeps teasing Conker and never delivering.

    Crash is dead.

    • Truth™

      Much like Rare, the talent left Naughty Dog years ago.

      Actually wait, that’s all of Sony’s joke of a first party these days.
