why do we need 2? 1 just got release and all we need is one with ps3 having dlcs and making adding new characters/stages easy

The author is not saying we need a 2 right now... merely what she thinks the sequel needs when it is made.

"4 Things PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale 2 Needs"

Well 1 really. SALES

I predicted the sales of PSABR. everyone on here was saying "pre-ordered" "day 1 for me" "GOTY" and it fell to the same fate Sorcery did after the "GOTY" Hype.

Okay TROLL , you obviously haven't played the game. This game sold well within excpectations of Sony. It's nearly beating Smash Bros Brawl in worldwide weekly sales on VGChartz. Not to mention sales will triple once the upcoming DLC is released and I guarantee you Crash , Syro and Snake are on their way too. This game hasn't even begun to peak.

For me it needs

1) More PS characters that matter and not just ones for free advertising. Classic Dante, Snake, Cloud, Squall, Zidine, Tidus, Sora, Crash, Spyro, Tombi, Gabe Logan, Lara Croft etc

2) More modes

3) More ways to play the game, for the love of god add an optional health mode so we don't have to rely on supers all the time.

4) Better all rounded story

Y_51501349d ago

Old Dante and Snake is not going to happen but the rest are possible. Crash, Lara Croft, and a Chimera from Resistance seemed like good choices.

Ellen & Keats from Folklore

I know Folklore didn't sell a ton (~250k) and I'm personally not interested in PSASBR/Smash Bros type games, I think Ellen & Keats would fit perfectly in that gameplay with all the different folk powers.

I agree with these four. First try was good, but now they have room to expand and grow: i) more modes with more variations outside, and including supers, ii) a much more solid single player with much more interesting trials and challenge modes, iii) a lot more PlayStation characters that I assume they could easily get, not to mention the characters that are practically handed to them (Abe).

The first game was a humble start, and I enjoy the game enough to think that a bigger budget and more resources with what they have so far can take this IP further. It's unfortunate that they aren't at the caliber to have more sway with third party characters like Crash, but if the IP grows strong enough, who knows.

Root1349d ago (Edited 1349d ago )

So true

I thought the game was alright and was good for a first try...all the things which were missing I let go because it was the first time they did the game

HOWEVER

If the sequel dosen't live up to the improvments they could easily make then I won't buy it. They are such easy to spot improvments to expand on it the next game that they would be fools to ignore them

I just want optional ways to play the game, the super sysem was a creative way to play but after playing it for a while it's getting boring seeing my fav selected character do the same things over and over again. Let me punch and kick a character off the screen....the supers should be in round PS logo orbs that come every so often...Bronze would be Lv1, Silver would be Lv2, Gold would be Lv3 and Platinum would make you invincible for a few seconds.

" iii) a lot more PlayStation characters that I assume they could easily get, not to mention the characters that are practically handed to them (Abe)"

See they keep saying that some developers didn't want to give them the characters but they were first party developers, if Sony owns them then they really they don't have a choice.

I hope we don't see anymore characters that are just added for advertising reasons...New Dante and Rising Raiden. It was a slap to the face to add someone like Raiden but Snake is no where to be seen...Kojima loves Sony I don't see why he wouldn't give them the character, it dosen't make sense.

I found myself liking PS All Starts a LOT more than I thought I would. Two of my housemates bought copies of it, but one lives (almost permanently) in my PS3 in the living room.

Besides a few minor quirks, it's become one of my favourite console games of the last year or two.

DarkBlood1348d ago

for it to have a health system it would need to redesign the stages to allow you to fall off of it otherwise how do you send someone to thier death like super smash bros?

Root1348d ago

Well there you go...there's something for them to work on.

Better maps

kupomogli1348d ago

Being knocked off the stage isn't really required. They could have health bars and the characters die and revive the same way they do now, the only difference is when the player hits 0 health they die.

HarryMasonHerpderp1348d ago

1.More modes e.g percentage, mini games in between matches in arcade mode.

2.More characters.

3.fully rendered cutscenes for the characters storys in arcade.

4.More stages.

5.More unlockables.

The series is only going to get better and better with time, so for the first game in probably a long running series I think they did pretty good.

Veneno1348d ago

It really seemed like this first entry was more a proof to see if Sony can make a fighting game that peolle enjoy. And despite modest sales, so far, Peolle absolutely love this game, me included.

Now that hey have a solid base to work from, they can keep adding layers of icing on the top

I think SuperBot and Sony Santa Monica did a great Job on PlayStation All-Stars. They should do the sequel and since they already have the ground work done, it should only get better.

bwazy1348d ago

Mika trolling?

I am so genuinely shocked

/sarcasm

Chidori1348d ago

Wanna know why he continues to troll? Because people like you continue to use up your bubbles replying to him.

ONTOPIC: While it would be cool to have the option of a health system in the next game or off-stage kills , I don't think it could work considering the nature of the game. They would need to do a complete overhaul. Right now, the game was built around super moves and to make anything else work, a lot of changes would have to be made at the core. I'm not sure if SuperBot would be willing to do that. They wanted to do something different and I'm afraid they might stick to it even if they know it's not the best decision.

bwazy1348d ago

Naw, he continues to troll because he's a ******. Also you're off topic is this specific sub thread.

Hingle_Mcringleberry1348d ago

For the current one to sell, or else SONY won't make a number 2. If vgchartz is to be believed, it has sold less than 400K and is out of most top 10 charts, even ps3 only charts.

Godchild10201348d ago

If going by Vgchartz, The game is over 500k if you combine both the PS3 and Vita versions. More if you consider the Downloads.

Blastoise1348d ago

It hasn't even released in Japan yet. Comes out the end of January. That should increase the sales, probably not by much but still an increase.

Outside_ofthe_Box1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

500k huh? That's actually pretty good. It should reach a million in no time, but you'll still have people say the game flopped and bombed despite that lol.

r211348d ago

Like you said, according to vgchartz, combined sales of both ps3 and ps vita for the same game equates to half a million or so sales :D Its on its way to a million :)

HarryMasonHerpderp1348d ago

"Sales are right on target with expectations and we are happy with them"

That is a direct quote from Sony.

Youre confusing Sony with Microsoft. Sony looks at a franchise long term and sees where it can go And dont kill it until they give it a real chance to grow. Alan Wake anyone?

Nicaragua1348d ago
