Sony Computer Entertainment
Sony Computer Entertainment is a large multinational video game company that created the PlayStation line of consoles. They and Universal Interactive Studios were the publishers of the five original Crash Bandicoot games for the PlayStation. In early 2001, Sony bought Naughty Dog, who has since become a first-party developer for the studio. Sony did not secure exclusive rights to the Crash Bandicoot franchise, as it was owned by Universal at the time.
