2 Tournament Seasons Later – Glitches Abound, and All-Stars Titles Still Not Being Awarded

PlayStation All-Stars released November 20th, so at the end of that short season many players let the lack of awarded titles slip by. But, now that December has come and gone (along with the tournament season), many players are frustrated to see this issue rear its ugly head again. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Ah man, what a bummer.

Seriously. The hardcore players can't be too happy with this.

The title really exaggerates things, makes it sound like the game is rampant with bugs (which it's not).
Hopefully it gets patched up asap.
I had a bug where characters disappeared once but that's the only problem I have had. Never really paid attention to my belt number.

Ummmm not sure what game you're playing but I encounter bugs and glitches in nearly every match. Character models disappearing, huge lag issues, character freezing bugs, the titles issue, game stuttering at the beginning of matches, etc.

When we were getting different characters in match than what we selected was a huge indicator that the online is a huge buggy mess. Its barely playable.

I haven't had any of those problems apart from the odd disconnect. Not saying you haven't had those problems though and I hope they patch it up as soon as possible.

I never encountered any glitches or bugs or disconnections nor any lag. Not once.

I'll be interested to see how it sells when it's released in Japan. Can you play against people worldwide? Hopefully the Asian release brings in some new and enthusiastic blood. This game is fun.
Obnoxious_Informer  +   1057d ago
New blood is right, there's so many times I've played against the same people online, or people I've heard of/see on the internet. The game really needs some sales badly.
dbjj12088  +   1057d ago
Unfortunately it still won't help the Vita though D:
Obnoxious_Informer  +   1057d ago
Honestly, it doesn't seem like a lot can help the Vita at this point aside from a heavily advertised price drop.

@ dbjj12088
The Vita is doing fine you troll. It does not need ANY help. Name a better handheld that's been built. YOU CAN'T.
knifefight  +   1057d ago
He's talking about sales, not the quality of the system or its games.

Most people who have a Vita (myself included) seem to love it, but that doesn't mean a lot of people are buying it. It's selling way below Sony's expectations, way below market predictions, and even below systems like the Dreamcast.

He's not trolling, he's just saying that the system is selling poorly -- especially in Asia, where I was talking about.

This is a title that needs all the support it can get.

Amazing game i cant get enough of it. If you play it often like i do add me on PSN :) same for everybody else :)

Oh, the days when games had little to no glitches...
god_mode  +   1057d ago
There isn't a game around that didn't have glitches. In fact older games had just as many. With the rise of the internet and information being out day one it only appears that today's games have more bugs than ever.
Gran Touring  +   1057d ago
Not true in all cases, some older games used to be pushed back so that they could fix those issues.
Temporary  +   1057d ago
There was no such thing as "patching" in the early days of gaming. There most definitely was a difference in quality from then and now because the sense of urgency is different. Now they rush it out so they can patch it later, back then they had to make sure it was as close to their perfect vision as possible because it's a "finshed product" that doesnt require patching and balancing late after its release.
flyingmunky  +   1057d ago
Those were simple days when nearly all the bugs could be found within a few months. Now games are so expansive and complex it is not feasible to find all bugs. But still, you would think developers could at least find more than they do.

This game is fun but it gets monotonous real fast especially with the amount of Kratos players online.

Maybe part 2 will iron out A LOT of the kinks found in this one.
Soldierone  +   1057d ago
The only time I run into Kratos online is when I randomly decide to be him. Otherwise I'm normally Raiden and never see Kratos.
Killzoner99  +   1057d ago
Who cares about stupid belts? That's not even a big part of the game. All this is is more slander against Sony and Playstation All Stars. Don't get taken in by this. This game is perfect and the #1 fighting game in the world. I have never seen any of these so called "glitches". The media is trying to destroy Sony , have been for years , and this only proves that. I can't believe you people are falling for these troll-tactics.
Y_5150  +   1053d ago
The belts are important for online players. Titles are a good motive to play the online rank matches as well. I got to the Purple ribbon and i would like to finally get my titles.
MelonSaurus  +   1057d ago
Me and my friend worked hard during the first tournament season and got ourselves to black belt ranking. We were severely disappointed to find that the titles did not unlock for either of us, and have made no progress since. It seems Superbot just doesn't care, and is more bent on giving us more characters and stages, when in reality all i want is those damn titles.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1057d ago
I really thought this game would do better. Sure it's a SSBB clone but there really are some amazing stages with character related themes. The character lineup is 2nd to none.

I bought my copy, why hasn't the community? It's got pretty much all your favorite Sony characters and some 3rd party characters.

Shame this game isn't going to do better and will most likely fall through the cracks.
Veneno  +   1057d ago
I don't think its quite that grim. The hardcore tournament scene iis embracing the game and is featured on live streams. It also seems likely that it will get picked up this year by Evo, the worlds biggest fighting ga,e tournament. If that happens, support for this game and a sequel is inevitable.
Soldierone  +   1057d ago
It's not game breaking. I'm sure a patch will be released and all the belts will show up, simple enough. Its not like the game is still not connecting or lagging, once you get in the game works dang near perfect.
