Sony are trying to bring back Parappa The Rapper

We read a great interview with the head of SCEA yesterday and notice something rather exciting - Sony is trying to bring back Parappa The Rapper.

The interview comes from wired.com (you should read it) and is about how Sony accidentally brought back Vib Ribbon, which has lead to gamers demanding the return of other long lost classics, such as Parappa The Rapper.

Speaking to the site about how it brought back Vib Ribbion, SCEA Boss Shawn Layden then revealed, "Of course, now everyone wants me to bring out Parappa the Rapper. Which we are looking at. But that's a more complex rights package."

Layden then said that if he can, he'll bring back other more popular franchises back, too.

"It's us trying to be more open at SCEA," he said. "If someone comes to me about something that they would like to have back on the platform, and it's in my power to make it happen… I mean, why wouldn’t we?" 

What franchise would you like to see make a comeback?

They should bring back speed Freaks, still the best kart racer on a PS console ever.

Front Mission 3, my favourite game ever, would be awesome. the sequels to it were all rubbish so I just want the exact same gameplay as FM3 but with next-gen graphics. Einhander would be great too. I've been wanting that in the UK for years now.

Einhander and Front Mission 3 were both Squaresoft games as far as I can remember not Sony games. Would love a new parappa the rapper game. Would love a new Ape Escape game as well.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
