Sony has seemingly delayed the release of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale by one month to November 20, with the official PlayStation Blog now prominently displaying a new release date on its front page.
Man, Sony sucks sometimes.
Maybe they will include even more characters. If it's the case, I can wait 1 more month.
The only problem I see is that cod might interfere with they're sales figure..... Im definitely gonna get this over cod though!
That could very well be it, what with all these people asking for all kinds of different characters. It's good to see that Superbot actually cares about us.
But not now. This game could definitely benefit from more polish.
This is one game that I think that the more characters the better it will be. I know it sounds like the same thing someone would say about every fighter.
One month is not enough time to add a whole new character. This delay is likely because the developer won't be done by the original 10/23 release date, not because they all of a sudden decided to add more content to it.
They could easily have even a couple of characters done within a month. Especially if they are using character templates which I'd imagine they are. Don't underestimate these guys. They need to make concepts, designs, graphics, animations, mechanics, then balancing. Might seem like a lot for one person, but with an entire team behind it, it speeds up the process dramatically. I've actually had experience with character design using the Unreal Engine in one of my college courses.
As if my Monday morning could get any worse COME ON! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Maybe the delay may have to deal with acquiring licenses for 3rd party characters to include in the game like Crash or Spyro. There is huge fan demand for these characters so getting them is more difficult than first realized.
I was thinking about that too, I can't even imagine all the paperwork and approval process' Superbot has to go through in a game like this. Every studio each character come from have to have approve every model and move. must take forever.
That is the unfortunate thing for Superbot. We all know they would love to add characters like Crash, Cloud, Spyro, etc. to their game but it is just not their call. They are under the mercy of the 3rd party publishers to accept what they are given to them which is why the rumors of 'New Dante' & 'New Raiden' may be true. Even more sad is that this is happening with Sony's financial difficulties well documented & 3rd party publishers trying to get a little more out of Sony's pockets.
I just wonder why so many third party characters. Sony has enough stars to fill the roster and it's called PlayStation All-Stars. One or two third party members seems enough outside of Crash and Spyro as those were the heart and soul of Sony past.
maybe Ken and Ryu ? Sony allowed Cole to be in SF X Tekken so there could be a deal between them :) Abe is also missing imo !
I would like Ashley Riot from Vagrant Story one of the most over looked dungeon crawlers of PS1. I think it is more special to have mostly PlayStation characters as those are the ones I grew up with. But if third party means more characters I'm all for it. P.S. Having Crash throwing crates at people would make me very happy.
Give me a %ucking beta key!!!!!
That is such an off attempt at censorship lol. It still looks like the word. the "%" almost makes an "F" shape, at least at glance lol. This comment is in no way meant to offend, I'm just pointing that out :P
IM playing the beta and i always loose my character i get confused i think the camera might be too far or the characters too small
in a way this is good for my wallet, need to save money for Dishonored and AssCreed 3 and AssCreed Vita
Not a big deal really actually for me it is a plus because I was having issues scraping all the money together for my pre-orders as it was lol. I have this month Darksiders 2, Borderlands 2 for Sept Assassin's Creed 3 and Slycooper for Oct, and now PSASBA for Nov much better fit XD
Your seriously fucking with me right now... This cant be seriously happening.
Let's remember this is a rumor. Wait for conformation
They could be adding something really good
Personally, I'm not surprised. I was kinda shocked about how soon they planned on releasing it after the reveal. If they're gonna make their own mascot brawler, then they're gonna have to do it right the first time, so more time is welcome in my book.
Well said :)
Well I haven't seen a single piece of advertising for the game, and now its going up against super high end AAA games in November. Its a bit of a head scratcher for sure, I mean I understand not wanting to go up against Assassins Creed 3, but sales for that will still be high when it finally does release.
Reverent no offense taken lol I actually agreed with you. Ill try better next time to disguise my foul language.
