That's the thing. He says "We". He had nothing to do with the game being made and knows nothing. He shouldn't have said nothing until Superbot gives the final word.

Why two ColeS? Because of Ryu and Ken, or Ryu and Akuma?
Cole is such ass!

Weak roster, and bland gameplay. Honestly they have really missed a great opportunity here. With all the greats of PS past and present they really blew it.

Hopefully there is no DLC. I don't feel the SSB series will ever have DLC characters and it's the most successful fighting game of all time.

#14
Torrie_De_Goddess said on September 28, 2012 at 6:28 p.m.

Wait, depends on how you read into it. Sure, the game may ship with 20 available fighters from the start but there may be unlockable characters as well.

BurningVigor said on September 28, 2012 at 6:34 p.m.

Who cares... the game looks like ass. If I want a party game, I'll play some smash bros.

That means no Crash, no spyro, no Rayman, no Snake and no Lara, kinda of a major let down, specially since they wasted one slot with Evil Cole already.

damn i was looking so forward to this game but this roster is hella bland...

HyperViperNZ said on September 28, 2012 at 9:19 p.m.

This is a terrible roster. Very disappointed. Two females out of the entire cast. U/MVC3 is no longer the king of sausage fest for a fighting game.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

This game is going to suck.

They have 2 coles, big daddy (since when is he a PS all star?) dante (another wasted slot)

No Fn Crash Bandicoot are they serious? No Spyro, Laura Croft, Solid Snake. I thought this game was called Playstation All Stars? Not Games that are coming to the playstation in the near future?

dmc, metal gear rising, god of war ascension, bioshock infinite, etc..

This roster is weak as hell.

"launch characters" that means there is hope of more to come

KaboomKid said on September 29, 2012 at 1:33 a.m.

I know it's crazy to say, but if this is really the roster, then I honestly think this game should be ignored until Crash is added in free of charge. Sony should get a bite in the ass for letting their mascot get thrown to the curb all those years ago.

Some of y'all just don't know. For a few years Crash was on more commercials than Sonic and Mario combined. He was pushing PS1's like a mofo, and originally Naughty Dog was working their asses off to get those games out on Sony's production deadlines. I don't care if he's third party now, and I don't care if Sony HQ refused him as a mascot. Crash deserves to be the face of this game.

#35
roknin said on September 29, 2012 at 1:47 a.m.

Wow... I'm usually not one to say this, but... that roster isn't really appealing to me at all. The only character I'd probably play would be Nariko. Maybe.

Hopefully this is just wasn't "known" and there's more hidden in the game, Smash style. I wouldn't even mind if they used Smash's "Challenger Approaching" idea to reveal more characters after doing certain things in-game.

EDIT: Also agree that they needed to find whatever way they could to get Crash into the game. He was literally synonymous with the Playstation back in the PS1 days - their direct competitor to Mario and Sonic.

EDIT 2: And I agree Cinder, I'm surprised they don't have Laura as well. Until recent years she too was synonymous with Playstation.

Of course we'll never know what kind of contract negotiations happened behind closed doors, and hey... maybe they are hidden away in-game. Guess we'll have to wait and see but it's not looking promising.

#36
AugustAPC said on September 29, 2012 at 3:23 a.m.

I thought Crash, Spryo, Lara, Snake and Lightning were gonna be in for sure.

I don't care for Spyro or Crash, but Lara, Snake and Lightning would have all been pretty neat. I only say Lightning because of how hard Square is backing the FF:XIII series... with multiple sequels and spin-offs.

Rayne from BloodRayne and Kain from Legacy of Kain would have been cool too...

#37
AugustAPC said on September 29, 2012 at 3:28 a.m.

Also... Bayonetta for more cooch.

Kelshou said on September 29, 2012 at 3:43 a.m.

LOL, even Platinum Games & Kojima Productions can't stand this game (1:53 - 2:28): http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/vc...

ruhulA said on September 29, 2012 at 3:54 a.m.

Snake? SNAAKKE!!!

But seriously, this means DLC. We haven't even seen the Bioshock stage....and the Square Enix rep Paul Gale was talking about...

#40
DenoK said on September 29, 2012 at 4:37 a.m.

I never understood why people were excited about this game. And now...20 "launch" characters?! LOL

@40

DAMN!!

#41
SyckEndings said on September 29, 2012 at 6:50 a.m.

Another case of rushing development just to make a quick dollar imo. Of all the characters they could've used how the hell does the roster of this type of game turn out to be this weak, The majority of the PS characters that really stood out during that era aren't in, this will certainly end well. lol

#42
Nukka said on September 29, 2012 at 7:26 a.m.

I remember David hayter saying he was gonna voice someone in this game, I guess he withdrew from that, obviously because Snake is gonna be in the new smash bros.

#43
ChunLi said on September 29, 2012 at 8:47 a.m.

i'll care when they announce Spyro/Crash. Those 2 series DEFINED my Playstation childhood.

#44
HooliganComboFTW said on September 29, 2012 at 8:51 a.m.

No Crash or Spyro? or even Laura Croft(Needs More Women too)? Hell so much more potential and ended at 20...

This "ALL STARS" is weak in the roster

I mean I understand some of these characters are owned by other people now, but they should have done the extra mile to include them in if they were doing "ALL STARS" for playstation

#45
Galletano said on September 29, 2012 at 9:01 a.m.

The roster is weak for a party game, if I were to buy this game I'll only use Fat Princess, Nathan, Sackboy and Dante, probably Heihachi (cuz I love tekken). I do like a lot of characters from that roster, I just miss Lara. I don't care much for Spyro nor Crash but ignoring was not a smart thing to do.

13/50 characters in UMVC3 are female...theres no denying its an ultimate sausage fest.

#49
XxAngelChunLixX said on September 29, 2012 at 10:57 a.m.

MvC3 WAS a major sausage fest, 13 females out of 48 I believe? And Ultimate did nothing but throw more fuel on the fire by adding 12 more. -_-" I do love me some Mahvel though.

But back to this, this really is a weak cast when the majority aren't even "All-Stars" as the name implies. I wasn't expecting much from this game anyway, but I was hoping to be proved wrong...oh well.

XxAngelChunLixX said on September 29, 2012 at 11:04 a.m.

Sowwie..
MvC3: 13/38
UMvC3:13/50

KB said on September 29, 2012 at 12:38 p.m.

Well the fact that there's no Crash, Spyro, or Lara Croft is disappointing, but I guess there's still fun to be had. It'll great a great party experience.

Not a great competitive experience. Just cause it has combos doesn't make it a great fighter. The hypers killed it. Big time.

#52
Guybrush20X6 said on September 29, 2012 at 4:50 p.m.

I'm not so sure. There been many conflicting reports and I'm inclined to think that Sony doesn't only have 20 worthy characters (4 of which aren't even theirs).

Also does anyone find it odd that all characters would be revealed with two months left to go? They'd wanna ride the hype train until the very end I'd expect.

#53
portalsofmadnes said on September 29, 2012 at 7:54 p.m.

I agree with people on Crash ans Spyro,but as hella cool as Lara Croft is, she was always a multi platform characters even during the PS1 Saturn era,she was on Saturn as well.(Also she was on Dreamcast)

#54
Huggiez said on September 29, 2012 at 11:24 p.m.

crash, spyro, lara, rayman (?), ff character (cloud, squall, zidane, tidus or lightning)...mmm yeah.
still really happy about sir daniel, rappa, spike and jak tho.

#55
Ex_Ein said on September 30, 2012 at 9:37 a.m.

@24 "No Crash, no Spyro, no Rayman, no Snake and no Lara"
When you consider 3 of those characters haven't been playstation exclusives in forever(Rayman's next big game is the WiiU verison of his game), Lara is not nor has ever been a playstation exclusive and Solid Snake is "retired" (Kojima's words on snake, and he's stuck to it that Solid Snake is NOT playable a single game after MGS4's release).

#56
Ex_Ein said on September 30, 2012 at 11:15 a.m.

@XxAngelChunLixX
This is actually more all stars than you think
With Radec representing Killzone you have one of the most successful shooters on playstation represented.
With big Daddy you have one of the biggest Exclusive turn over from 360 to PS3.
The two Coles are from the highly successful infamous franchise.
Heihachi Mishima represents the "best selling 3D fighting game franchise"(Tekken has claimed this a few times) that started on playstation.
(That's 1/4th already)

Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank and Sly If you grew up on PS2 platformers you know these guys very well and most likely love them.
Sweet Tooth is the face that changed car combat for years and has over 10 different games under his belt
PaRappa the Rapper very much an all star in his own right, as he's the underground guy who if you never heard of you'd be curious to find out about.
(that's half the cast)

-Sir Dan while he hasn't been around since the PS1 is in the PaRapper the Rapper boat of being basically being a huge spot in their fans childhood(one of which is me)
-Spike is the representative of The long running Ape Escape franchise, which is a pretty big franchise with games on every playstation platform beside vita as of today.hell it's so big within Konami that people mention it frequently in other franchises. (Hell Naked Snake/Big Boss mentions spike in MGS3's Snake vs Monkey mode)
-Nathan Drake, Sackboy and Kratos of course speak for themselves.
(3/4 of the cast)

While you may not be familiar or like the remaining 5
-Toro is popular in Japan(hell he was popular enough to get in SFXTK).
-Nariko while she has only one game she did fill in that action Adventure spot while
-Dante, while he's the redesign he is representing the whole franchise and his new game(which is coming from the creators of Nariko) coming up so he's got alot of potential as the 'future' of PlayStation
-Raiden, though he was poorly received in MGS2 and came back way more badass in MGS4 people are kinda meh on MGR. The thing is Snake is retired Kojima has retired him and beside big boss there's no playable protagonist in the franchise.
-Fat Princess while she only has a few games to her name, she's represented the first true success on a full PSN mp title.

It's a truly diverse cast of people you may not think of as the all stars of PlayStation. But you have to remember that these characters are beloved but a lot of other people and not all in the Americas/Europe.

JesseRobles said on September 30, 2012 at 2:01 p.m.

Maybe I'll wait next year for the complete version with all the DLC characters included. Sony does that all the time with its exclusive titles, so yeah.

#58
Ex_Ein said on October 1, 2012 at 1:56 a.m.

Jesse not really, the closest thing I can think of to do that is Killzone 3 which Killzone 3 is nearly 2 years old by the time the collection comes out.
