One of the big rumors of late last year was that Sony is working on a Super Smash Bros-style game with all your favorite PlayStation characters. Now, a survey seems to suggest that the game will be called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.
O_o - juicy rumor that seems to be true. I was beginning to think the original rumors were non-sense.
I kind of like the name even if it is a little long, I think it's the best title fit for it
I also think Sony needs a Kart game with all PlayStation characters in it. Imagine how awesome that would be if developped by Naughty Gods! Those guys created the best Kart game ever on the PS1: Crash Team Racing!
I don't really like the name when it's written in an article like this, but I would imagine that when it comes to box art, "PlayStation All-Stars" will be on top and a little smaller, and "Battle Royale" will be the stand-out.
I don’t like the title. The title gives off that there will be no one from outside of Sony’s franchises that will be in the game and we all want to see some character from other games in this. I want to see someone from Mortal Kombat, and someone from one of the Assassin’s Creed games. There are endless characters that can be in the a PlayStation oriented fighting game other than the ones that Sony owns.
I didn't get that impression when I read it. If it was named "Sony All-Stars..." yeah, but I think using the PlayStation name is fine, and could allow for any character that's been present in a PS game, Sony-owned or not. Personally, I'm not a fan of the name. I'm not a fan of long names in general. It's just awkward when it becomes a mouthful, and something short is easier to talk about. "Hey, you wanna play PQRSTUVWXYZ?" is more obnoxious to say than "Hey, you wanna play X?" I mean, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is NINE syllables. That's a lot for a game title.
skyttskytt has a good point. I don't know if you've realized this, but Mortal Kombat and Assassin's Creed are both on Playstation, and might even be considered All-Stars.
Me too. Paul Gale Network is a just horrible looking site with bad content yet they were the ones to break this story. On topic: The name sounds good...its bit of a mouthful but i'll get used to it.
That's what she said...
If it is basically Sony SSB, it'll be a shameless rip off, I can't help but get excited.
Who says it will be a rip off? The idea is dominated by Nintendo and they do it very well, but so can Sony. IMO there is a whole class of genres Nintendo does very well in that I think Sony can benefit borrowing from for their own franchises, especially LBP-themed games. Personally, I prefer a 3D fight world with simple arcade fun like Power Stone, which is the direction I hope they take this game, especially considering most of Sony's biggest franchises started in 3D anyway
Ahh, the amazing Power Stone. How come Capcom never bothers to bring this franchise to the current generation with proper online etc? It would have been a killer.
Except Kratos wins every time.
I don't think so, Sackboy will rip him a new one ;)
Did you not know? Sackboy and Kratos are one in the same. Hence why both of them are so damn epic. http://www.creativeuncut.co...
I like 'Playstation All Stars'
That could work but I think a little more is needed to define it as a fighting game. 'Playstation All Stars' could eventually turn in to something more like 'Playstation All Stars Soccer' or 'Playstation All Stars Football'. I'm just happy to see it is being discussed.
Call me crazy, but I think every word in the title screams generic. It's overly descriptive of what it's trying to be. It needs to have a more creative title. Something that'll give me that same chill I get when that announcer guy says, "SUPER SMASH BROTHERS!!!"
"Title Fight" was a much better name. Remember you're not selling to kids Sony.
This game will not be a bloodfest. It's going to be E10 man. It's their smash. Lighting effects and awesome flash instead of blood. Your getting E rated Sony characters and R rated characters. It will meet in the middle. And I am pretty sure it will be amazing. Either which way, I am excited.
another PlayStation 3 exclusive , The PS3 is truly unbeatable
Meanwhile on the Wii and 360: people playing "no gaemz"
Where can I pick up Xenoblade, and The Last Story for PS3? Had no idea that PS3 was the only thing that had games! What have I been doing all these years playing these mario games on the Wii when I could play them on the god-given PS3!
... that was your best? For some reason, I expected more out of you.
It's just such a long name. Playstation Battle Royale sounds a bit better. Either way whatever it is called I hope its great because it definitely has potential with all the characters Sony can use.
Can't say I like that name very much.
I don't care what it's called as long as I can beat asses with Parappa.
Rolls right off the tongue.
Looking forward to this.
Same here, however i hope they do not go with that name. As its rather generic.
I'm still hoping they add Kevin Butler as a secret character. lol! They could make him move like a Reality Fighter. Hahaha XD
That title isnt any good but i love the idea of the game if they can do it right
Stupid name. Generic, as usual.
I know a great name: Sony Fight Simulator! I wonder what would happen...
In Japan, Smash Bros is called "Nintendo All Stars"
Battle Royale with Cheese....wait thats The Hunger Games.. :d
playstation all stars? awesome, playstation all stars battle royale? -_- WTF, Overkill
PlayStation Battle Opera . Is better.
Screw it. The title could be, "If you buy this crap, you like the c*ck", for all I care. If it delivers a smash bros-esq experience with all, or most of, the PS base characters, I'm game to buy this day 1. I think it's a safe bet that we will finally see this at E3.
Playstation battle royale sounds good enough.
The title is alright, just a little long. We can just call it PlayStation All-Stars or something for short. There's so many great PlayStation characters that could be in this. I hope most of my favorites make it in the game.
If the rumours about an E3 PS4 announcement are true then this game would be a great launch title. It could do for the PS4 what Tekken did for the PS1. When Sony release the PS4 they need a strong launch lineup, the PS3's was terrible.
I cab think of many simple names like... <<Clash>> Anarchy x BattleStar BattleArenaChaos Rumble royale Battle Kings :clash of the icons PlayStation rumble Starfist My cast: Sweetooth Kratos Gabe logan Drake Cole >infamous ico Kat>Gravity rush Mr buzz>buzz Toan>Dark cloud Nariko>Heavenly sword Emmitt graves> starhawk Sir Daniel fortesgue>medievil Leonard>White knight chronicles Yoshitsune>Genji Dart>The legend of dragoon Rudy roughnight>wild arms Jaster rogue> rogue galaxy fat princess Jak Ratchet Sly Lil & laarge> escape plan Parappa the rapper Patapon Hale>Resistance Sackboy ect.
Lol yeah tittle is long so itd be PASBR which you'll tell people "wanna play some pass-bar?" lol Cant wait.
I bet this is the secret game that to the contestants on The Tester were able to play
I wonder if it will be on PS3 or PS4
