Why Aren’t These Characters in PlayStation All-Stars Yet?

MasonicGamer.com - There are already 10 confirmed characters featuring in Sony’s upcoming brawler, including new additions Heihachi and Toro, but there are so many more to choose from throughout Sony’s history. Although most of the current selection are from Sony exclusive games, the inclusion of Bioshock’s Big Daddy (Bioshock originally being an Xbox exclusive) shows that really, anyone is fair game in the roster.

Therefore, I’ve compiled a short list of 5 characters who really deserve a spot in the lineup. They may not be from games developed by Sony, they may even have appeared on other platforms throughout the years, but each and every one helped shape the PlayStation and grow it’s popularity. So lets start with number 5: (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Because they don't want to reveal all characters at once I guess.

There's a little big planet level, so I think sackboy will make an appearance at least in some fashion.
jeseth  +   900d ago
Yeah, Sackboy is a sure bet.

I would love to see

Rau Utu (Mark of the Kri/Rise of the Kasai - PS2)
Nariko (Heavenly Sword - PS3)
Rayman (Multi)
Crash Bandicoot (Multi)
Kain and Raziel (Legacy of Kain - PSone)
Jak and Daxter (PS2)
Maximo (Multi)
Sir Daniel Fortesque (MediEvil - PSone)
Cloud/Sephiroth (FF7 - PSone)

Ahhhh, so many!!! It maddening to try and come up with a full roster!
Ranma1  +   900d ago
Heres hoping Sephiroth is the last boss
h311rais3r  +   901d ago
Yep. I'm gettin so sick of all these articles. Wait till the game is out before you complain about what's not in it.
pinwheelherman  +   901d ago
Complain? Who's complaining? Is there anything wrong with having a wishlist?
Nimblest-Assassin  +   901d ago
2 more characters next week, plus a few more at gamescom.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   900d ago
Hopefully they save a few surprises for the game as hidden/unlockable characters. I also hope there are a lot of characters like in Brawl.

And btw why haven't there been a lot of villains announced. I feel like there should be a villain for each hero. Like Lazarevic or Flynn. I just think there should be villains that are announced.

Tonester925  +   900d ago
Too many people with guns lol
josh50187  +   901d ago
solid snake is in it look at david hayters imdb its listed

JohnApocalypse  +   901d ago
I think it was pretty obvious that Snake was gonna be in the game
cpayne93  +   901d ago
It'll probably be old snake, since mgs 4 was a ps3 exclusive.

Edit: regarding your comment down below, I've also heard a lot of people say that about big daddy.

I'm getting tired of people saying Big Daddy shouldn't be in PlayStation All-Stars because it was on Xbox first. First of all, it was never an Xbox exclusive as it was released on 360 and PC simultaneously. Secondly, the PS3 version of Bioshock Infinite is receiving Bioshock 1 on disc as well as 3D and Move support. Not to mention the PS Vita is getting an exclusive Bioshock game. So stop acting like Bioshock isn't a big enough PlayStation franchise to get a character in PS All-Stars. Bioshock is my favorite FPS of this gen so I think it's awesome that Big Daddy is in this game.

Who the fuck said that?
Hicken  +   900d ago
The same people that will be- or already are- hating on the game and/or character roster, as usual.
Hanuman  +   901d ago
I'd like to see Jezus make an appearance..
leemo19  +   901d ago
Crash Bandicoot better be in there, cause his one of the big names that helped Sony in gaming in the first place.
VanillaBear  +   901d ago
I hope its classic Crash and not Activisions...it would defeat the point of wanting him in this
TheBioLover  +   900d ago
They could put in the Acti Crash, same for Spyro, but let them have a skin for classic Crash and classic Spyro. Same thing for Dante and Lara, have rebooted Lara and Dante in, but let them have a skin for classic Dante and classic Lara.
UnitSmiley  +   901d ago
As long as there is a decent jrpg character or two i'll be happy.Pretty much any FF lead. I think Noctus from FFVS13 would be great since FFVS13, despite how long it's taken is still supposed to be a ps3 exclusive and it would be a nice little peak at him till the game comes out.

The wanderer from SOTC, Dart from Legend of dragoon, Sora from KH, or even Caim/Nowe from the Drakengard series!
smashcrashbash  +   901d ago
They are probably saving the best for last.
TheFinalEpisode  +   900d ago
Agreed and the most requested characters are easily Cloud and Snake

DigitalRaptor  +   900d ago
Agreed. I see people whining about no Crash, no Jak, no Spyro etc. But it's pretty clear that those will be in there and they are taking their time to make the reveals in order to build hype and in the couple of months before the game comes out they will make the big announcements.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   900d ago
All of those characters mentioned have a really high chance of being in except maybe Lara Croft.
Fez  +   900d ago
X1-Alpha better be in this game!
Skateboard  +   900d ago
Give me Lara Croft and Cloud.
Bakagami  +   900d ago
Gotta save all the good stuff for the DLC :P
MiyagiSPG  +   900d ago
Can just imagine playing the Cloud Strife/Sephiroth stage with Final Fantasy VII battle theme in background, AWESOOOOME make it happen!
Tonester925  +   900d ago
Ratchet and Clank
Jak and Daxter

Pretty much safe to say?
Sithlord-Gamble  +   900d ago
Sony says the last boss will be from ps1 era.

My money is on it being Sephiroth.
tigertron  +   900d ago
This isn't a list without Sony's true mascot - Crash Bandicoot.
Magnus  +   900d ago
Lets see out of that list Sony only owns one of those characters and thats Sack Boy. For those other characters they have to ask Capcom or SquareEnix to put those characters into the game.If Sony does get those characters they might release a few extra characters that help established the Playstation brand through DLC. Honestly I wouldn't mind playing as Sephiroth against Kratos now that would be a great match.
MoreRPG  +   900d ago
Characters i want to see in this game
Some villains from god of war
i hope we got a lot of dlc content too this is one game i wouldnt mind playing for extra characters
typeN8  +   900d ago
I want a Helgan soldier. I think they already said they got Sev and Rico.

Alot of great characters so far. Bring out the bigguns sony
MacUser1986  +   900d ago
Sir Daniel Fortesque and Maximo or I'm not buying it.

AgreeFairy  +   900d ago
Yeah, why isn't Ralphie in Playstation All-Stars yet?
Over726  +   900d ago
generic character from morrowind anyone?!?!
TheMrFraz  +   900d ago
Still can't understand why they're holding back the obvious few like Jak & Ratchet...
iPad  +   900d ago
they come out with wack characers now, the good ones probably we will have to buy in a DLC pack
