Crash Bandicoot is the number one PlayStation Icon, according to recent poll by the Official PlayStation Magazine.
In their February issue, PlayStation Magazine asked their readers to cast their votes on who is the number PlayStation Icon and readers crowned Crash the number 1 icon.
“Despite being absent from our screens since 2008, the original PlayStation icon remains in the hearts of modern gamers,” said editor Matthew Pellet, commenting on Crash’s no.1 spot.
“Our readers have spoken loud and clear: even though Naughty Dog has moved on to blockbusters such as the Uncharted series and The Last of Us, the developer’s PS1 marsupial still casts a shadow over all other gaming characters.
“Thousands of people voted Crash Bandicoot into the number one spot and calls for his return to PlayStation grow louder every single month.”
The last Crash Bandicoot game to hit consoles was 2008’s Crash: Mind over Mutant.
Sony CEO Andrew House has said previously that the door hasn’t close on a possible new Crash Bandicoot title.
