Anonymous source tells all for "Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale"
Update: Leak has been confirmed as legitimate by PlayStation Blog.
There has been speculation abound regarding the roster for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale, but after the most recent rumor leaked, we received an anonymous tip from a reliable source regarding what is actually in the game. The roster list which leaked has been corroberated as our source says the following characters are in the build they have seen.
- Parappa the Rappa
- Fat Princess
- Sweet Tooth
- Sly Cooper
- Nathan Drake
- Evil Cole
- Big Daddy
- Raiden (MGS)
- Sir Daniel
Keep in mind this is not a complete list of the final roster, only what has been seen. Sadly there is no Crash currently listed, but there is speculation from our source that the DLC characters could include: “Cloud Strife, Sora, Alex Mercer”, Minamoto Yoshitsune, or even a Soul Calibur character. Additional levels have been confirmed by the source as well and the full list includes:
- "Columbia" (BioShock Infinite)
- "Alden's Tower" (Infamous)
- "Invasion" (Killzone)
- "Sandover Village" (Jak and Daxter)
- "Paris" (Sly Cooper)
- "Black Rock Stadium" (Twisted Metal)
- "Hades" (God Of War)
- "San Francisco" (Resistance)
- "Metropolis" (Ratchet and Clank)
- "Dojo" (Parappa)
- "Stowaways" (Uncharted)
The last thing that blew our mind was how far off the rumor was regarding modes in the game. According to our source “there is no king of the hill, there is no capture the flag implemented yet nor have I heard talk of anything like that… LAN games were removed due to the amount of bugs submitted for it, no free roam as far as I have seen… And the Challenge, General and Character trials are being removed in order to be made into DLC”.
The best part is though, that the boss character has been revealed as none other than the Playstation One era Purple Polygon Man! Now that’s what I am talking about! So there you have it. We will not be 100% sure on any of this information until we see a response from Sony, but in the meantime, does this sound reasonable?
No Snake, no buy. Why did they put in Spike? Crash would have been better.
Well if you're so pissed off at the site you're more than welcome to leave. I'm frankly amazed that anyone can get so legitimately upset over a news article about a video game; get a life man.
That's because evidently no other site is so deperate for hits that they will put up articles based on nothing but an anonymous rumor with no proof. Everywhere else posted the beta leak because it's clearly legitimate, the DLC nonsense is just that, nonsense. If someone I knew said "Hey, I saw that Crash is in the game! But I don't have any proof, and when you tell other people you can't say my name. But it's true I swear!" should I trust that and spread it around for everyone to see? Or should I act like a professional and actually try to confirm the information as true. They posted a rumor they heard from some random guy with the big beta leak to make it seem legitimate, and then added to the confusion by putting confirmation in the title without bothering to clarify that only the beta leak was confirmed as true. It's dishonest and it screams "We need hits, please spread this around as fact so people will come here!' It's just bad form, and a professional game site should actually try to conduct themselves as such.
Well no other site making the claim is part of the word "exclusive" don't you think?
I don't CARE if its the new DmC Dante, I'ma main him when I get this :)
i know its "confirmed" and all, but im still to disappointed that im refusing to believe.
lack of top tier characters that EVERYONE knows and wants, EG you only have 1 character (heihachi) from your top 25 (parapa being 27th) top selling PS1 games of all time, removed stages and game types, and hearing DLC usually means PAIDED DLC.
Sony, as one of your (maybe THE) biggest fanboys here. you gone done fucked up.
The leaked content is kinda promising but for the love of god pls add crash and spyro and add an alt. costume for dante from dmc1 or dmc3
Could be the always lame "Free DLC" that was always intended to be in the final game.
The PS Blog confirmed the beta data leak, not Screw Attack's anonymous DLC rumor. Them putting confirmed in the title just adds to the confusion. Instead of clarifying which leak they're referring to, they've just tacked on their rumor to the big beta leak to make it seem legitimate. Have you noticed how no other site has backed up Screw Attack's claim? That's usually a good sign that it's not true.
There may possibly be more characters, as they haven't stated or indicated that this is the final build.
so... no crash bandicoot? :okay:...
In the meantime Sony why don't you do a little something by obtaining back rights to one of your most iconic figures in the Playstation lineup for DLC. Crash, Issiac Clark, and Cloud or Lightning for DLC.
C'MON KEVIN BUTLER
I can't speak for everyone, but if you want a character to be in the game, you need to get a hold of them directly, not wait around and look at news to see if they've been added yet. It's pretty unlikely that the team goes directly to SA (or any other website) just to see what players want to see in the game and what their initial thoughts are.
Like I said, I can't speak for everyone, and there are probably some people who have wrote them directly. But relying on them to go out of their way to please fans (no offense to them) or waiting for everyone else to make a difference seems like kind of a stretch.
Gonna be honest, I like the idea of the giant polygon head being the final boss.
OH MAH GAWD ITS FO' REALSIES!
I was expecting Kevin Butler.
Also, cutting content that could be in the final release to use as DLC? Not cool.
Actually found one of the ads, took me a bit though.
no problem dude
Hoping for Crash...
