Excerpt: Spyro was originally a mascot who honed his skills on the Playstation platform. But the meteoric rise of the Playstation platform really needed no mascots. In fact, entities like Spyro and Crash Bandicoot were not nearly as integral to the Playstation's success as franchises like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy and Grand Turismo would later become.
Excerpt: That little purple dragon, Spyro comes winging his way onto the Game Boy Advance in his latest adventure: Spyro: Season of Ice. This is a brand new title and exclusive to our favourite handheld so I put the jump from console to palmtop to the test. There's trouble in downtown fairy land. All the fairies have been trapped in blocks of ice and it's up to Spyro and company to sort it out.
