IGN - Don’t expect any more new fighters to be announced for launch.
Will wait from a official announcement from either Sony themselves or from Superbot. they have said nothing yet. A single tweet isn't solid proof at all.
My disappointment level is over 9000 right now I was expecting more, since they said over 20... but this disappoints the piss out of me
nooooooo wth we need moaaarr; spyro, crash, tomba, anything !!
Yup same here, if this is true then that is really disappointing. The fact that they would put in garbage characters like the new Dante, Heihachi and the big daddy just to help advertise new games coming out is shameful. It's also frustrating because this has the potential to be an utterly amazing game and address frustrations that I have with playing Smash Brothers, but they seem to have just screwed up in the silliest ways. I just hope that if the game does indeed launch like this, that reviews heavily criticize them for the dumb decisions that they've made, knock down the scores because of it and hopefully Superbot Entertainment will get the message that way, since they seem intent on ignoring the fans.
Well 21 characters announced so far I counted cole twice by the way Good cole and evil cole
I see downloadable characters incoming for a small fee.
Needs more Legend of Dragoon.
I hate it when fighters include 2 of the same character as seperate characters ( In this case, cole).
all this means is that any extra characters they haven't revealed will be DLC... typical fighting genre move
It doesn't matter how good the title is or how much DLC will follow as there are those that will inevitably use this news to attack the game. Just wait and ...oops, too late.
"launch lineup" definitely implies DLC characters. I hope there's DLC levels too.
Here we go. >Not as good as SSB. FUD FUD FUD FUD FUD
These are not all. No more being announced means we'll find the rest of them out ourselves.
It'll probably be like Little Big planet where a character costs a few dollars... May as well wait for some complete pack or maybe if it's GOTY
Wait... what original fighting has had like 30 characters to play with??? You build a strong foundation, try to balance out the fighters the best way you can, and then you create more and more characters for the following sequels...
We know they will have Cloud and some other characters at a later date. This is obvious.
I never knew tweets were recognized as official news
Hopefully your right because if this IS true then I'm really disapointed in this game It had so much potential but the more I hear about new editions and characters that we don't really want it makes me try harder to like it...and for a video game I shouldn't have to do that. No Optional Health mode (MY BIGGEST CONCERN) No Snake No Tomba No Gabe Logan No FF character No Ico character No Crash No Spyro No Resistance character No Shadow of the Colossus character New Dante instead of classic Dante MGS Rising Raiden instead of Snake or MGS2 Raiden Two Coles when they could of been one (switch between them) Original voices for Nariko, Jak for example are not present Two third party characters that seem like they are promoting their future games. I could go on... Maybe it's a game which could improve in the sequel, I'm not saying it's going to be crap since we havent played it, I'll still buy it but when people have been asking for this game for years how could they get some things wrong. Take Crash Bandicoot for exampe...I thought Omar said in an interview that they wouldn't add him as DLC and we should "stay tuned"...if that was it for the characters why didn't he say so instead of getting our hopes up. If I have to pay DLC for Tomba, Old Dante, Snake, a FF character for example then why should I, these things should of been in the game at the start since they were the Number 1 requested things since the very start of us crying out for a game like this. If this is true...then they lead us on. If people are upset or disapointed then complain, don't sit back and try to look on the good side because remember "You don't get anything if you don't try".
I am disappoint...
Man it seems like you have the game already and know about all the future DLC content lol
"No Crash" - Activision owned. "No Spyro" - Activision owned. "No Resistance character" - It's a shooter. "New Dante instead of classic Dante" - It's a publisher/marketing decision. "MGS Rising Raiden instead of Snake or MGS2 Raiden" - It's a publisher/marketing decision. "Two Coles when they could of been one (switch between them)" - They have completely different attacks in inFamous....why not in PSAS?
@Silent First 2 points are moot since Big Daddy, Heihachi, Dante and Raiden aren't owned by Sony. Radec is from Killzone, which is a shooter. Another moot point.
"First 2 points are moot" - I didn't say "owned by third party", I said "owned by ACTIVISION" They charge MS for COD being on XBL, for crap's sake. Activision would never be worth renting out characters from. And we don't need MORE shooter characters. So, no, not a moot point.
@SilentNegotiator. Using Super Smash Bros. Melee/Brawl's Zelda as an example; Zelda and Shiek can transform back and forth from one to the other any time in any fight. Both have movesets and tactics that are polar opposites of eachother. This is likely similar, if not precisely what Carl_Shocker was getting at about how Good Cole and Evil Cole should have been the same character.
carl buddy the characters complains are reasonable except that cole thing because even in infamous you cant change between them . the optional health mode is a woooow dunno what to say first try the game as it is with open mind then judge it i saw many many videos and it looks super fun like that in my opinion finally wanted to say yeah you are right about not believing this tweet because it is a gaming STUNT
How many bets Cloud/Snake will be $5 DLC. Which won't be surprising since licensing them would be expensive.
Where the heck is my playable Chimera :(
I know! Resistance Fall of Man sold way more than Heavenly sword and they put nariko in it.
This. This tweet can't be serious in context
I sure hope so, since I speculated this 30 days ago and got several disagrees and people telling me more people would be announced at TGS. Sure it's sad to hear they're done announcing, but I still rather have nothing than a Hot Shot Golfer or something equally worthless.
Don't fall for it everyone, its a Lie. Same Lie tactic like Jaffe used about Twisted Metal PS3. Nothing wrong with trying to surprise fans with a white lie but comeon..this is just too obvious. :) http://www.playstationallst...
I don't see why people automatically assume Sony is trying to throw a curve ball, I mean you DO realize they have to market and sell this game right? Even Sony isn't stupid enough to say the roster is full and then announce even more characters down the road. I mean seriously, it comes out in 5 weeks (in Japan), so do you really think huge characters are going to be announced RIGHT before it releases? The article is nothing more than wishful thinking, sure they can be right, but there is a 100% chance you're not going to unlock Crash, Spyro, someone from FF that wasn't announced prior to release.
@admiralvic The game does NOT release on Nov 8th in Japan.... It's been said that the people who have been keeping up with all the info about this game knows what they are talking about. Which is why many are not believing this guys twitter comment. I bet some of you even thought the Japan 8th date was true ay? :) It's Q4 Winter for Japan folks
