Rumor: Cole MacGrath Playable in PlayStation All-Stars

Kyle from Vivid Gamer writes:

The complete PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale character roster is being kept under close wraps, but certain first-party Sony characters seem like a shoe-in to join the fight. Among them is Cole MacGrath, hero (or anti-hero) of the stellar superhero series inFAMOUS. Earlier this evening, Cole's real-life counterpart - actor Eric Ladin - tweeted to Vivid Gamer that he has stepped back into the mo-cap studio to play Cole MacGrath in a game that is NOT an inFAMOUS title.

Update:

NEW UPDATE: Eric Ladin has deleted the aforementioned tweets, adding fuel to the fire of this leaked announcement.

I am pretty sure Cole was a given, along with the likes of Drake, Jak and Ratchet.

i think the original reveal of characters was to show that they would be supporting popular choices (Kratos) along with more niche choices (Fat Princess) and golden oldies (PaRappa).

I personally think that E3 will be about many 3rd party support. With characters like Drake and Cole being revealed slowly post-E3 and pre-launch.

He may have been a given, but him being confirmed got me even more excited for PlayStation All-Stars

slixshot1544d ago (Edited 1544d ago )

agreed.

sikbeta1544d ago

He's definitely in the game, only thing to know is IF it's going to be Good Cole/Evil Cole or both

I'll zap everyone in this game with granades! >:)

I'm really hoping this game turns out well. Smash Bros died the minute the wiimote was invented. The super slick controls of Melee turned into sluggish, unresponsive controls in brawl. Not to mention that lack of a hardware upgrade from GC to wii meant that that game itself did not upgrade. They actually had to take out characters that were loved in melee because of it.

Sony will give is the sequel to melee that we truly deserve.

He'll hopefully fit better in this game. He's such a bad character in SFxTK :(

Fez1543d ago (Edited 1543d ago )

I hope it looks like Cole from Infamous 1, not 2. 1's character model looked so much better. I'm not even joking when I say the change to Cole is one of the reasons I haven't played Infamous 2 yet.

@fez you should have used in game for all the pics of cole.

Fez1543d ago (Edited 1543d ago )

@dead_eye

I was being a bit unfair there, but I meant the art direction of the character. In 1, Cole looked pretty bad ass, like an actually comic book hero who I really enjoyed playing.

The new Cole just doesn't do it for me. He lost his edge. He makes me think of some high school drop out. The voice is good, the graphics are improved and he has more powers but the shape of that head and the look on his face, gets me every time. Just look at that thumbnail :P He looks like and extra from The Bill.

Slugg3r1543d ago

@Fez
You know there is a skin for Infamous 2 that makes Cole look just like he did in the first one

so the first phase of his special will be ice, the second electricity and the third will be the 'SLAM!'

mafiahajeri1544d ago

Exactly cole is a no brainer aswell as Drake . Im hoping for guest star characters I really want the Joker in it he would be a character I wouldnt minds spending cash on as a DLC character besides who doesnt like the Joker? That and he would be amazingly fun to play with.

Also heres hoping for ALT costumes...

Army_of_Darkness1544d ago

Please.... Just stop asking for DLC and maybe the developers will just add him in there as an unlockable character after finishing the game or something?! Damn I can't stand people just begging to get ripped off!

Fez1543d ago (Edited 1543d ago )

Remember this Army_of_Darkness: http://n4g.com/news/925561/...

Preemptive DLC section in a fan made GTA main menu. Crazy how DLC, usually bad DLC, has become the norm this gen with gamers even asking for it months before a game has finished development.

raytraceme1544d ago (Edited 1544d ago )

It would be nice to see nix and kuo as other playable characters. bertrand and the beast would make good background characters :)

slixshot1544d ago

cool characters, but not worth putting in this game. Maybe as "assist trophies" like there were in smash, though.

raytraceme1544d ago

@disagrees
I see not many people have played infamous 2 ;)

Fylus1543d ago

Sorry for the late reply, but I agree. There's no reason for you to be getting disagrees. I think your idea is awesome to be honest.

rrquinta1544d ago

And this game just got that more shockingly awesome...

synchroscheme1544d ago

Cole being confirmed as a playable character certainly came as a shock. ;)

Redempteur1544d ago

this news came as a shock , like a was struck by lightning .!!

ozstar1543d ago

I am stunned by the originality of these comments.

paybackprahl1544d ago

I see what you did there...

NeoTribe1544d ago

Funny how I didn't even think of him even though its so obvious he should be in it. He may be my favorite character if they make em right.

EvilSpants1544d ago

Makes me wonder what other characters are gonna be there? I am still holding out for Crash.
