Sony Santa Monica Confirms That No More All-Stars DLC Will Be Coming

Over the past few weeks, we have seen an incredible Twitter campaign take place called #ReleaseDart. After over 2000 tweets and many messages sent to Sony Santa Monica, one of the community managers at the studio, Aaron Kaufman (Just_Tank) has just sent a much needed official response to the community. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS Vita, PS3)

Man I didn't think anyone cared for this game anymore to be honest.
TheLastGuardian  +   859d ago
Me and my friends still play it everyday. I must've played it at least 200 hours and I'm still not tired of it. That's more than I can say for most games this gen.
AzureskyZ  +   859d ago
Well i still play time to time-- the game is really good in all accounts-- i just wished they were smarter with character choices-- i understand they can only do so much with 3rd party characters but sony have so much to offer in there own ips yet failed to produce any of the characters people really wanted-- a shame considering the game had so much promise.

The limited line-up is what killed the game first and foremost.

Sony Santa Monica can go f**k themselves. All-Stars wasnt perfect at all. Not even close. But it was pretty fun for me. It needs more (and better) DLC.
RioKing  +   858d ago
So when a studio makes a game that's not "perfect", they should go F*** themselves? Grow up

I want to know what SSM are working on they have 2 different development teams

Damn I thought this was some new Gravity Rush news or something. Anyway this sucks, they said they were going to support it. Ah well time to do a sequel and start again with the characters Playstation fans wanted in the last game.
chrismichaels04  +   859d ago
Tons of 8 month old games from last year stopped releasing DLCs. The Sony haters are trying to make a big deal out of nothing. PSABR was a good game and sold around 1 million copies which is very good for a single platform exclusive new IP. Unlike other consoles, Sony moved on to several other exclusives. No big deal.

Seth Killian, the lead game designer at SSM, actually teased new content during April and those images of Dart set fans off. That's why it was a big deal for people. Plus, the game's broken with many fixes needed to balance the characters and make this a perfect game rather than a mediocre one.

So much for listening to the fans huh?
WeAreLegion  +   860d ago
How does this guy still have five bubbles?
GameCents  +   860d ago
Cloud power. You can't stop it.
chrismichaels04  +   859d ago
Gamecents is a bitter and jealous fanboy. Every one of his comments gets buried in disagrees. He know he's just trolling. Pay him no mind. He'll be down to 1 bubble soon enough.
GameCents  +   859d ago
Jealous of what exactly? Shall I give you my PSN ID? Some pictures perhaps of me and my PS3?
chrismichaels04  +   855d ago
@gamecents - having a PS3 doesn't make you any less of a troll when you spend all of your time being bitter and hating on Sony. Every one of your comments gets buried in disagrees. It's time for you to wake up and face reality.
majiebeast  +   860d ago
Core gamerplay was really good the rest was sub par and looked like it was in alpha stage. Next time Sony shouldnt out source to a unproven dev they were clearly not ready for such a big project. Still enjoyed the game.

Game had a lot of potential. Hopefully we get a sequel the heavenly improves on what has been laid out.
LKHGFDSA  +   859d ago
Yeah a sequel is the only hope for this game/series.
They blew the budget on the essential mechanics of the game without adding the fun & gimmicks the game needed.
IMO a correctly done sequel could be better than any Smash Bros game.
AznGaara  +   860d ago
Aw. Well it was a fun game. Next time Sony does a fighting game it should be a new IP with brand new characters.
Roushrsh  +   860d ago
Well there goes any chance of me buying the game.
Shad0wRunner  +   860d ago
Thank you, Sony Santa Monica.

Please...no more "smash bros clones" in the future. Keep that kiddie crap on the Wii U where it belongs.
MikeyDucati1  +   860d ago
lol ok cool, I thought I was the only one that thought super smash bros/PSAS is too kiddish.
MikeyDucati1  +   860d ago
I watched some buddies of mines play that game and it just look downright boring. Yes, that's my opinion. If I wanting a fighting game, give me SF, Tekken or even DOA. But PSAS looked like a kiddy romp room game. It just didn't appeal to me the same way that super smash bros didn't. Again, my opinion.
Fireseed  +   860d ago
It had a decent amount of support considering it sold around 600,000 copies and how in expensive the DLC was, but in the end those 2 factors probably made it expensive to support
Thirty3Three  +   860d ago
It sold over 1 million copies :I
Fireseed  +   860d ago
Ok so even then the compounding factors were it's sales, and cheap DLC, not to mention being a Sony 1st party game with A LOT of big name characters it probably had a sizeable budget and sadly in the world of AAA or even AA 1 million copies is doing average.

OH. No, I wasn't arguing, I was just stating a fact :P
jujubee88  +   860d ago
Yup, no ones even mentioning the fact it hadn't been patched
In what seems like forever since more characters have been found OP.

Time to let the game just run anarchy until next year or two and than officially turn the servers off.

Playstation characters will re-unite in another form, though. I wouldn't worry too much about that side of things.
r21  +   860d ago
Quite disappointed. Actually very disappointed.
elda  +   860d ago
I thought Sony was going to continue supporting the game with dlc,sounds like they LIED,glad I only rented this game instead of buying it.
jujubee88  +   860d ago
You didn't buy at launch and rented and your complaining?

pr0t0typeknuckles  +   860d ago
Personally I brought the game at launch,and got bored in the same day,there just isnt anything to do besides arcade and the broken online,the roster doesnt help even the dlc was bad Zeus and Isaac,c'mon,i just hope that if there is a sequel they add a lot more modes,more/ better characters cause some choices were just bad.
elda  +   859d ago
@jujubee..That's because I can...also it's my business & my prerogative.Evidently I didn't say something wrong...some people agree.

@elda: That's the laziest and most cowardly counter-arguement I've seen in......I can't remember when.

"Hey guy, some strangers clicked me upvote and I'm right because..um erm upvote!!!"

'=_= .. Think, please.
Protosism  +   860d ago
I figured, but I suppose there's always hope for the future. Great game, if unbalanced and lacking in certain areas. Maybe we'll see a second All-Stars in a few years.
LKHGFDSA  +   859d ago
Yeah I really hope they're working on the sequel.
Ideally to compete with the next Smash bros.
Baba1906  +   860d ago
i would prefer if the fixed the games. still a lot of connection problems, bugs and overpowered characters... kinda sad i really enjoy the game.
Acquiescence  +   860d ago
I stopped playing when they nerfed my main cat Toro...
Already a mid-to-low tier character to start with, that pissed me off to no end.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   860d ago
Hey look on the bright side they still refuse to nerf kratos,even though he severly needs to be.
dorron  +   859d ago
I can see this game coming to PS+ in a few months...
LKHGFDSA  +   859d ago
the game is dead already.
lived a short life. I hope it will be revived with PASBR2 for PS4 with actual Playstation allstars and ALL the features and little gimmicks that Smash Bros had.
Flop game, only half finished.
LordMe  +   859d ago
This completely sucks, way to go SSM for not supporting the game like you said you would!
elda  +   859d ago
@LordMe..I completely agree with you,I said the same thing basically,saying Sony LIED but I got disagrees for it,talk about crazy.
