    I want to beat up Sweet Tooth with the power of rap.

    Oh, how glorious this game has potential to be just on that aspect alone.

    The new Sly Cooper was tempting, but being able to fight as Parappa just may be the thing that makes me buy a PS3. :D

    I know he hasn't been Sony-exclusive in more than a decade, but does anyone think Crash Bandicoot could show up as a guest character? If this game is real.

    GameTrailers said their game is being made by SuperBot, the studio rumored to be behind PABR. It's likely IGN's reveal is the same game.

    The game's been announced. I've updated the OP with the relevant information. It has started quite the fury in some forums...

    Not surprised. The game looks pretty much like Super Smash Bros only with Playstation characters.
    I like the LittleBigPlanet stage, the one that build itself while you fight. And LOL at Captain Quark getting eaten by the hydra :p.

    I think the game looks pretty cool so far, but then, I am a sucker for cross-over fighting games. I'll be getting this alongside Street Fighter x Tekken and Project x Cross.

    According to the Playstation Blog, SuperBot Entertainment is looking at adding DLC to this game post-launch. So we could see some more obscure PS1 & PS2 characters in this game.


    Also, we might see this come to the PS Vita which I definitely like.

    It looks good, but dear god the title is horrible! PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale? A bit too long. They should've went with PlayStation Title Fight or PlayStation Battle Royale.

    I don't see this surpassing Smash Bros., but I'm expecting it to be good. Pretty excited.

    As an Xbox user, it sucks for me that Nintendo and Sony have first party fighters, while Xbox dosen't :(

    At least I still have a Wii...

    It's a blatant clone.

    ...I approve. Seriously. Smash Bros. with Sony characters? Sign me up. Well, I don't have PS3, but it still looks fun.

    Eh, even though I do possess a PS3, this game doesn't seem to be a very exciting foray. The stages seem to be very monotonous ie: almost all of its bells and whistles are purely ornamental. The rest is just bland.

    The potential is great but very few Smash Bros. clones turn out particularly well.

    Title Fight was a better name.

    As an owner of all three consoles, I honestly don't give a crap about this game being a clone of Smash Bros. That being said, I love everything about this game. Smash Bros is all about celebrating Nintendo history, so All-Stars is all about celebrating Playstation history.


    I think Solid Snake (MGS4 version), Jak & Daxter, Rachet & Clank, Nathan Drake, & Cole McGrath are all pretty much guaranteed to be in this game. I hope we get a lot of third party characters though.



    Also, I heard someone suggest "Playstation Battle Opera" as a title for this. Not that big a fan of it, but it's much more marketable than All-Stars Battle Royale at least.

    I agree with the first party characters.

    BTW, anyone else want to see a Legend of Dragoon representative in this game?

    Solid Snake would be epic. The only character to appear in both Smash Bros. and this new game.

    I am with the crowd that is ok with this being a Smash Bros. clone. Always wanted to play a game like this with Playstation characters. Sign me up!
