Could PlayStation All-Stars Characters be Hidden in Sony's "Michael" Teaser?

Kyle from Vivid Gamer writes:

SuperBot Entertainment level designer Chris Molina once tweeted that Sony’s well-publicized “Michael” commercial served as foreshadowing for the game his studio was working on. We now know that game is PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. With Sony’s crossover brawler and six playable characters revealed, maybe it’s time to revisit the “Michael” promo and search for appearances of other playable fighters. After all, 50 percent of the six revealed characters appear in the video (66% if you connect Colonel Mael Radec with the video’s Killzone paraphernalia). Those are good odds, so let’s take a look at some of the cameos in “Michael” and discuss their fighting potential. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, PS3, Sony, SuperBot Entertainment)

Wow so snake will make an appearance! Okay pre order it is.

Terrible connection, an advert containing playstation characters and only 50% so far from a game dedicated to playstation characters appeared in that advert. Bottom of the barrel correlation.

Did you read? - "Chris Molina once tweeted that Sony’s well-publicized “Michael” commercial served as foreshadowing for the game his studio was working on" - Seems almost certain. It was deleted shortly after, probably b/c it wasn't getting unveiled until now.

I don't recall fat princess and parappa the rapper being in the advert. Any character we see in allstars is mere coincidence to the advert, unless of course every character in the advert is in the game then you might be onto something, but that looks doubtful. Seems ludicrous to suggest that they'll only be in the game becasue of the advert. You have to learn to statements like that with a pinch of salt.

The article never claims to offer anything more than speculation about character possibilities, given that SuperBot *Confirmed* that the promo is "foreshadowing" for All-Stars. If any given character shown has a 50 percent or Greater chance of being playable, isn't it worth discussion?
LedZeppelin  +   816d ago
Actually parappa is in the advert as a little poster or sticker.

I was just remembering this commercial this morning.
So I guess that little girl from Bishock is in the game? So is Lighting form FF13..
Liquid_Ocelot  +   816d ago
Jesus Christ, I've been saying this shit for a while now . Let's all hope it does include them :)

I remembered this commercial. Could be very possible.
dboyc310  +   815d ago
doubt it. I mean it does generalize it since most ip characters are in there. But I don't recall seeing fat princess, the rap dude,sly in the commercial. So i doubt you can use it as a reference.
user5467007  +   816d ago
I would love to see Chell in this game, least we would see the real star of Portal 2 instead of her being over shadowed by Atlas and P Body.

I would not want to see Lightning though, sorry but there is other good interesting main characters in the FF franchise which could be used instead. Squall/Cloud/Zidane. I wouldn't see the point anyway why add a not so liked FF character when you could use fan favorites instead.
Afterlife  +   816d ago
I can understand the hate towards lightning and XIII. Well I like Lightning as do other people so I don't mind her being in.

If I could choose, I would choose Zack Fair.

Kur0  +   816d ago
No Zack. Terra, Cloud, etc would be more memorable.
Afterlife  +   816d ago
@Kur0

Yeah I do agree with you on that. I was about to say Cloud though.
Dakidog  +   816d ago
Zack would be my pick too...just a bad ass character right there! I absolutely hate Cloud...just a sad excuse for a character, I mean you can't go around pretending to be another man and have my respect lol.
Afterlife  +   816d ago
Paul Phoenix was in that video. I think if a Tekken character was to be in Playstation All-Stars, it would be Kazuya or Jin.

So I'm not sure if Michael video was intended to hint the roster or not.

negroguy  +   816d ago
Already know who im playing with. Cole, Sly, and Sackboy
Game4life  +   816d ago
and kratos and lightning
Daver  +   816d ago
if they add FF character which they probably will do I hope its not Lightning.
Game4life  +   815d ago
Id rather have Auron anyway lol

I just don't think they would put him in.
Downtown boogey  +   816d ago
Infamous Cole could be the end boss.
cpayne93  +   816d ago
I can't really see that. Still wishing that Kevin Butler will be the end boss though lol.
Solid_Snake37  +   816d ago
Please, KB awesomeness instantly wins the fight.
NukaCola  +   816d ago
I think Kevin Butler should be that guy who pops in the corner and says "SOOOONYNYY!!!" sort of like Mortal Kombat does with 'Toasty'. I don't know where to go from there...lol
WetN00dle69  +   815d ago
OOOO...kay..........
LarVanian  +   815d ago
The Beast would be a pretty cool boss.
StrongMan  +   816d ago
Good eye, sir.
Raoh  +   816d ago
It's you

PSEYE takes your picture and puts your face on a created character.

Calling it now.
paybackprahl  +   816d ago
That would be seriously meta! Lol
NukaCola  +   816d ago
wow, I totally agree. I also think SackBoy should look like your LBP2 save file as default and he can absorb powers like Kirby and turn into a SacKratos, SaCole, Lara SaCroft..etc
house  +   816d ago
thats a great idea.. imagine sackboys finishing move is him building something to just finish you the possibility's with sack boy are endless
PLAYER5095  +   815d ago
thats a koo idea but not gonna happen. sony and the gamers wouldnt like to see d*ckheads fighting with sackboy and others!
ncstatefan953  +   816d ago
Nice. Will preorder this game.
helghast102  +   816d ago
Only 50% of the revealed roster has appeared in the Long Live Play Ad and you're basing it off of that?
Unless it were 100%, there's no connection.
goldwyncq  +   816d ago
Nathan Drake FTW!
Braid  +   816d ago
So that means we're going to see Old Snake in action again if this advert is a foreshadowing of the game? Oh man that's not good, you should leave the poor guy alone. He's too old for a brawl, let him enjoy his retirement.

Instead, that would make more sense to see Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid 1 as an iconic Playstation hero. After all, Playstation 1 is the platform on which Metal Gear saga is introduced to most of the gamers out there today.

I want more characters from the PS2 and PS1 gen. I'm sick of the ones from this gen tbh
Relientk77  +   816d ago
I honestly dont even know what to say besides,

^ THIS

I want mostly PS1 characters to be honest, PS1 and PS2
SilentNegotiator  +   815d ago
Too bad Sony didn't secure all of the best IPs from that era. Spyro and Crash were once some of the best that the Playstation offered, and now they're abused Activision IPs.
Relientk77  +   816d ago
I hope not :(

I want Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Sir Dan (Medievil), Dart (Legend of Dragoon), Toan (Dark Cloud), Abe (Oddworld), Brave Fencer Musashi, and some Final Fantasy VII-X and RPG characters

none of which are in that video

Those characters would fit so perfectly for the game, and it needs the variety too.
wnek9  +   816d ago
sir dan is a must!!
bahabeast  +   816d ago
makes perfect sense to me :) i cnt wait to play this, ssb is the game i spent most time with on nintendo consoles. sony is taking away all of nintendo's thunder lbp, mod nation, move, all star battle :)
Regent_of_the_Mask  +   815d ago
No. Otherwise you would have Parappa and Radec in the teaser. Not to mention nobody wants that crappy Lightning character. She doesn't represent Playstation at all. Zack Fair, Cloud, Squall, Sephiroth, & Noctis are all better pics for 3rd party characters.

Not to mention even in the teaser that hobag Lightning doesn't raise her fist to say "to Michael". No, that terrible excuse for a FF character just stands there looking stupid (even Nathan Drake looks at her like "WTF!?) so she represents only betrayal.
loltonytony  +   815d ago
Parappa is in a photo on the right side of the girl by the front door. (but have not seen Radec) http://www.youtube.com/watc...

The only thing I got from you, is the you have Personal issues with the char. lighting more then lighting being a bad/good pick for the game.

I think its just coincident, if not I would so play as a baseball catcher.
Pentumsmart  +   815d ago
This was the first thing I thought about when I first heard about the game, thought I wasn't the only one.
Omar91  +   815d ago
like Ive said before, all I want are:
Cloud
Sora
Sir Dan**** A must!!!
WetN00dle69  +   815d ago
A PSVITA version would be great! Come on SONY make it happen!
