All-Stars released on November 20th, 2012 in North America for PS3 and PS Vita. All-Stars sold a paltry 11,758 in its first week on PS3.
I hope so. The first game...well, it wasn't great, but there's plenty of potential there. I think they need to really look at the roster when planning a second game. I've heard that the most recent update fixes tons of balancing issues, which is a good sign that they realize some of what was massively wrong with that game.
I don't think we will se another one and I think its the same with MNR and LBP carting. Out of the 3 games I thought MNR was the most fun and closest to Mario Kart game I've played but had its own twists too it. As for PSASBR I though it played better on the psv than the ps3 for some reason but it just felt like a half assed game a there was not really many game modes to it and with the sales being low for it the online side dropped quickly too. I thin it was good o Sony to try and male games like this but I don't think we will see a number 2 of them. For m id like to see them keep giving us new and fresh ideas like they did with LBP rather than try an copy Super smash bros or Mario Kart.
Yeah, Sony needs a karting game.. I really enjoyed MNR (the ps3 version, the vita version was meh). I hope we see a decent karting game on ps4, I know we'll probably get a sonic kart game, but I'd like to see sony put one out as well.
I hope there will be. Just needs a slightly bigger budget and a developer with pedigree (I think SB being brand new made it difficult for 3rd party devs to commit to giving a character). I enjoyed the first game.
I hope so as well and will be enjoying the first one in September :D
PS Plus eh? The game was fun but it kinda came and went.
as is the case with most games~
Not hard to platinum either! As usual the online trophies can be tricky depending on the competition.
Probably not. Sony doesn't see the value in it.
They told you this?
11 thousand copies in 1 week the consumers tod Sony lmfao.
@koolaid You mean 127,000? And Who's tod? http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
@Koolaid: It sold over a million copies in retail and several hundred thousand digital. I received the full game for free after an unplayable Vita version but playable PS3 version during a sale. I think it was fixed within 10 days and they gave everyone the game again for both systems and a refund!! The game was very good and I enjoyed playing it. And currently with with PSplus I see it going to do really good and will perhaps make sure a part 2 will happen. Just a bit more depth in gameplay, more characters and you have a super game.
@elazz same thing happenned wih me aswell. its good that sony gives full credit refund plus free game when something fails. so far got two games for free like that.
No, All Stars tried to capitalize on the Smash Bros formula. It was decent but didn't capture the charm, the design or the tight controls Smash Bros has long since mastered. Smash Bros. characters meld so nicely because they have charm and personality and to see these iconic mascots fight is such an out of character experience that you just have to love it. Sony All Stars not so much, as most of their characters are all violent and blood thirsty anyways. Not to mention most of their All Stars are third party characters. Kind of defeats the purpose of Sony All Stars.
you right ssb is gangsta
I kinda agree with you on the 3rd party stuff, it was kinda obvious they were just marketing the game (dmc and mg rising)
I'm sorry, but saying these characters lack charm is a bit ridiculous. Ratchet & Clank? Sly Cooper? Nathan Drake? Sir Daniel Fortesque? Parappa? Meanwhile, many of Nintendo's characters barely have stories. So, why would I care about them? I just enjoy the games they're in. I don't like Yoshi. I just like playing AS Yoshi. The mechanics of Yoshi's Island are brilliant, but I couldn't care less about the characters. The controls on PlayStation All-Stars are tight. Very tight. I don't know why you would state otherwise. I think it totally owns any Super Smash Bros. title, as far as mechanics and combo systems are concerned. It was created by a team of fighting game vets.
Those are the only decent characters. Nobody said anything about "stories" not sure why you brought that up because it doesnt matter at all. PSASBR needed polish. A lot of it. The idea was there and it could have worked, but it was a sloppy, low budget mess. They should have put 100% into the project or none at all.
@legion You're right about the fighting mechanics and combos, PSA was all over that. Unfortunately there wasn't enough meat on the bone. Smash has so many diverse game modes its almost a party game. @krontaar true as well, it was just a smidge over indie, at least thats how it was presented. Should have been backed like a big game.
"Meanwhile, many of Nintendo's characters barely have stories." Compared to what? This guy: http://www.fightersgenerati... The only character in smash that really supports your argument is Wii Fit Trainer. But even then I'd say the fan support for the character goes against you because these are just too funny: http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photo... http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photo... http://t.qkme.me/3uu6o8.jpg
i think the fight mechanics were too complicated for a casual game but not enough for a fighting game. characters were also not as well known as mario, zelda pokemon.
I can agree on some of that, they should of made their game more mature, since PlayStation has always been the more mature consoles. They need not release a sequel unless they can get Crash/Cloud/Sephiroth and maybe some Spiro, and Snake. But I would definitely want to see their newer characters, like the leads from Tearaway, and Puppeteer. They should also make scoring scheme more diverse, and make the collectable energy meta game more of a dimension to the gameplay.
i guess that maybe true. not really sure what the big deal about smash is though. problem for psallstars was that it tried to do too much. kind of like a fighter to compete with games like sf but not complexed enough. and not crazy enough as smash. i
Man, look the disagree for this guy. N4G is full of Vita fanboys. It's not even funny.
I sincerely hope not.
When Crash Bandicoot returns then everyone will see PS All Stars.
I hope the next one is a 3D brawler. C'mon Playstation I.P are all 3D.
I totally agree. I'd love to see more of a Power Stone type of brawler.
I really would like to see a FF Dissiddia style fighter. I'd like SE to make one for console. But of course Square doesn't do what fans or gamers want
Half the reviewers said it wasn't enough like Super Smash Bros. Half the reviewers said it was too much like Super Smash Bros. How are they supposed to make a brawler if all people do is compare it to Super Smash Bros.?
The differences between Super Smash Bros and Playstation All-Stars, of which there are none, make the sameness more exceptional! JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT!!! (cookie for the ref)
How could you not compare it to Smash Bros... it was a shameless copy and paste affair - minus the heritage, polish or magic. What's next? Sony copying motion controls akin to the Wii but in the hurry forgetting to make any games worthy of the hardware...
