The website for the upcoming PS3 and PS Vita brawler, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been updated to include the four new characters announced at Gamescom 2012 and the new Cross-Buy program.
that is a very sweet background for my computer!
Yeah, loving the 'line up' shot. Big Daddy looming in top-right is great.
Cross buy has sealed the deal on this one =7
Yep, it's such a great thing for consumers.
Phew! Now to cancel my Vita reserve. Saved me $40. And how many times are we going to confirm cross-buy for NA? lol
I had the PS3 and Vita versions of PlayStation All-Stars and Sly 4 pre-ordered on Newegg ($10 off on each game). After Gamescom, I canceled my pre-orders for the Vita versions of PSASBR and Sly 4 as well as CoD Blops Declassified and replaced those with pre-orders for Tearaway, Killzone Mercenary and Until Dawn.
That's the perfect switcharoo
Was already planning on buying this, but this just makes it all the sweeter. I hope they announce at least 16 more characters. lol... is that to much?
more the merrier
Definitely, this just isn't enough characters for me. If they actually announce 16 more it'd be a dream.
bring it on, but a balancing nightmare.
yep, does for me.
This is a pretty bad group shot imo.
And you are a pretty bad troll imo.
I think it looks like crap. if you take offense to that then whatever.
Does anyone know who the yu-gi-oh looking dude is?
Spike from Ape Escape
Yep, confirmed day 1 for me. I was probably going to get it anyway near or at launch. But this just made me pre order, like right now lol.
well i was going to get this for ps3 and vita so yeah im happy right now
I cant see the wallpaper o_0
I won't lie, I'm only getting it on release day because of Cross-Buy.
I know I'm going to get a lot of disagrees for this, but the line up is a little lackluster IMO. No Lara croft, Cloud Strife or any FF characters, no Solid Snake or Big Boss, Crash bandicoot or Spyro, they're using the new design of Dante too that's hated by many of the DMC core fanbase, no Tekken characters no Megaman X or Zero, seriously surprised that they didn't include Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine or Leon S Kennedy, Laharl from disgaea would make a awesome addition too, heck! even a prinny would be great. Sony has over 10 years of great game characters to choose from, but this game seems to be sticking with (for now at least) most of the recent stars this gen, also the majority of characters are from western developed games which kinda sucks if you're more of a fan of the Japanese developed games. If they had the original Dante I'd pick this game up day one no question, but seeing as there aren't any characters that I really care for I'll probably just wait and see what DLC characters they include. This is just my opinion and I'm well aware I'm in the minority here. (Edit) Ignore no "Tekken characters" (prototypeknuckles) just remindeed me about Heihachi.
agreed, im not really hyped for the roster its seems very meh if they announce crash then ill probably be hyped up but until then im not impressed by the roster IMO. on a sidenote they do have heihachi from tekken
The problem for me is, the game is about 10 years late... a lot of the best characters have come and gone and apparently are forgotten too. Also I'd add Z.O.E's Jehuty to the list too, that would make a interesting character to play as although I'd imagine there mite be some balancing issues lol.
How would Jehuty even fit in the game? He's a giant mech. If he was an summon item or something that would be cool. Maybe they should create a level just solely basend on Konami games and have Jehuty shooting you in the background.
The line-up is far from finished... How about you wait for the full roster reveal before complaining? Anyways, did anyone else noticed the spelling error in Dante's section of the "All-Stars" category on PSASBR's website? They mispelled "worlds". On the site, they have it "workds". Lol.
Why does a comment have to be either complaining or praising? Anyway my comment was far from "complaining" and I'm fully aware that the character roster is incomplete, I was only listing a few characters I hope they include and felt they should have used in the original roster reveal. Its just my opinion, sorry for the misunderstanding.
Okay you said a lot of wrong things there and since you don't seem to be in the loop let me correct you. First of all Heihachi is in the game so about having NO Tekken characters that is wrong. Second of all you just called out a ton of third party characters which would probably cost a fortune to get or would probably take months of negotiations to get. Thirdly, and I know people like Mike Cosgrove will jump in at this point, New Dante is a very childish reason not to want to get the game. New Dante doesn't change the fighting style or how well he fights plus he is only a single character. Fourthly they haven't announced all the characters so jumping to say there will be NO Crash, Spyro or Snake is not an opinion it is future sight that you seem to have. Fifthly Heihachi, Spike and Toro are Japanese. They have to balance it off. They can't just stuff it with a ton of Japanese characters and not use the western ones especially since the western ones are the ones that belong directly to them. Saying they should get and have characters that don't belong to them does not make any sense.Think business wise and not fanboy wise. You can't just run out and get every character you think you want and expect everyone to agree readily and hand them over willingly. Superbot themselves have said they have been reading our lists and have thought about every character we have. We haven't a clue what they have tried to get and what they haven't and who refused them.SE could have outright refused to give any FF characters and Superbot isn't going to tell us that.So everything you have said has been said, repeated, explained, reexplained and said again. You are not going to get every character you want from the start. Superbot and Sony don't have unlimited resources and can't do everything we say only with in limits.So cut them some slack. They probably have a budget and can't just get anyone and everyone. They aren't going to buy out every character in the PlayStation universe so people can call it a clone and buy only 500,000 units of it.Like I said think business wise not fanboy wise. Notice Nintendo didn't add every single character that was on a Nintendo system over the years because they know the problems of trying to do that. Mega man was first played on the NES. Why wasn't he in SSBB?Wyhy didn't the negotiate with Capcom to get him? Why didn't they go to Rare and Negotiate for Banjo and Kazooie? And yet no one found that a problem did they. Instead of using people like them they instead dug up ancient characters that no modern gamer knows and yet that wasn't a problem for anyone. So why is this a problem for people in PASBR?
There is a Tekken character, Heihachi Mishima one of a few characters to be in all Tekken game. Haha you really expect Mega Man X to be on here, Capcom pretty much has the entire Mega Man franchise on lock down. Plus why should Sony put more than one Capcom character. If you want Zero, Mega Man X, Jill, and Chris play MvC3. True Nis needs a representative they have been so loyal to Sony over the years Laharl, Etna or a Prinny would be awesome dood. Idk about them all being recent stars of this gen. Heihachi, Toro, Parappa, Spike, Sweet Tooth, Sly, Jax, Ratchet and Kratos are stars that started on in previous gen. That's pretty much half of the announced roster. With PAX there's a chance we will see Crash considering that first day of PAX Prime is Crash's 16th b-day. Superbot has always chose their character announcements based on the event. With TGS coming maybe we will see some Japanese characters. Though I guess the reason we don't see much characters from Japan developed games is because at least on Sony's end most of their Japan franchises aren't as iconic as western games except for the Team Ico and Gran Turismo games. Legend of Dragoon, while its a good game and has a cult following it isn't the first game or second game that comes to mind when you say Sony game. Still you opinion is your. You should at least give a try if a demo or open beta ever is released because the private beta is pretty awesome.
They trolled hard with Emo Dante. That's almost disrespectful. BTW, what you say is pretty ironic. I would much rather play UMvC3. I got Firebrand, Zero, Nemesis, Arthur, the real (and bad ass might I add)Dante, Iron Man, Hulk, Dr. Doom, I would love to see a Sony allstars and other third parties using the same engine, but from what I can tell, it's not even close. I might buy this, especially if I get the 3 copies like promised. @zero. Dude, omg, thinking of Jehuty in a fighter would be so siiiiiick!
@jonboi24 Seriously? You're really saying Jehuty couldn't be playable because it would be too big? No offence but It's a game dude, theyre not very well known for realism.
So many characters that should be there. I really hope they have a lot more to reveal, and if they don't reveal them, they should at least announce that the game will contain like twice as many characters as this. I'm honestly not interested if they don't.
And trust me (i'm gonna get lots of disagrees) but the gameplay is just bland and boring. No depth. It's just a boring version of Super Smash Bros.
No Nathan Hale? No chimeras? Wow
and where did you get your full roster list from?
on the All stars website for kratos info under legacy of kratos why is there a game called "god of war Betrayal" ? is it a type-o or a new game?!!?!?!?!?!?
I think it was a mobil game.
All these years, and Google still doesn't auto search simple questions :P http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I hope this Cross Buy thing comes to Asia too.
Cross Play too? Sweet.
they should do this for every game.
Cannot wait for this game
Awesome, now I can afford Sly for sure since I don't have to spend 100 bucks on one game.
The problem is this game comes out on the same day as Hitman so I'll wait until this is on sale.
