    Well, this certainly sucks. 20 Characters is already a little sub-par on today's standards, let alone for a 4-player brawler.
    I was expecting at least 30 chars at launch and another 10 as DLC. I guess I won't be buying this until more chars are announced.

    Not a first day buy now, no Crash, no Lara, no Spyro, no Square Enix.

    Will probably wait for DLC if any.

    Not Playstation All Stars currently.

    The beta was terrible, got boring after the third match and fails to be the game it was trying to be from the start, SSB.

    It seems to be a different brawler party game. One tuned away from the hardcore tactician, so I give them some props for trying. But $60 for a 20 character list? DA FUQ!?

    But here's the catch: had they just used Evil Cole as an alternative skin for Good Cole, there would've been 19 characters and the 20th could've been anyone else (mainly someone we cared about lol), so of course most people are mad at them using a character slot just to have us use a character that coudl've been simply a skin for an already existing one. This leads to them releasin more DLC to take more money from us (a la Microsoft) just so we can use a character that shoudl've been there from the start.

    I also wouldn't have been annoyed if other franchises had 2 or 3 characters. But when only inFAMOUS gets two spots it just comes off as stupid. At least if they had put in Kuo or Nix it wouldn't have been great, but at least it would have been different characters.

    Good Cole/Evil Cole is the equivalent of Dr. Mario and Mario (or Link and Toon Link) I didn't like when Nintendo did it and I don't like it now.

    AHHH! Who cares if SONY keeps on doing this we won't see a PS4. It's like come on 20 characters that's BS should have been at least 30-35 characters. If you look at what they could have taken from

    Hot Shots Golf
    Yakuza
    Crash
    Spyro
    Lara Croft
    Tomba
    Solid Snake
    Cloud or Sephiroth
    Chrimera
    Alucard
    Sora
    The King of all Cosmos
    Optimus Prime
    Megaman


    That just leaves me to believe that SONY doesn't know what they're doing and the company's just getting more and more run into the ground. Has anyone even seen a commercial on TV for this game or even the new Spell book yet?

    I personally would love fighting 20% of the roster in one match, but that's just me.

    I'm not that disappointed at all. I mean sure there could be a FEW more, and there are franchises that I love that have been passed over... (KATAMARI OMFGWTFBBQ)

    But getting licenses is really difficult. And Sony has SO MANY characters that fans/the sony higher ups want to get in. (Toro is totally forced by Sony management) Plus, in Nintendo you only have maybe...what...5 major IPS to hit up for characters? Which are all first party.

    And Sony doesn't own the rights to all the characters people love of theirs.

    Plus they have absolutely no chance of making as much money off this as SSB does for Nintendo. So you can't expect them to want to put in as much money.

    Give them a break. And have a little faith, not everything in the world is a cash grab.

    In my whole life, the only person I know that games and doesn't know who Fox or Ganon are by name is Sly Cooper, and I'm not talking about "real.life-only" acquaintances, but internet-wise, too. it's "common gaming logic", just like knowing that the dude with the big, blue hat that they always show as a midget is Napoleon, or that the evil dude with the square mustache is Hitler.
    Hell, even non-gaming acquaintances know who the hell Ganondorf is!
    Also, Mother doesn't count. Nintendo killed it, and so far it seems they did the same to F-Zero .
    In Sly's defence, I had no fucking clue who (or what?) Ganondorf is, until I googled it, having never played much Nintendo other than a little bit of Glover, Banjo Kazooie and the original Smash Bros.
    And back on topic, 20 characters (19 if your nitpicking) is relatively small in terms of roster size compared to games like MK9 or whatever, but it is still a fair amount. I still say that Sephiroth will be a boss in there somewhere (as I remember hearing there was a boss character and I don;t think this has been revealed yet has it? correct me if I'm wrong). And also, this is a modern game, so OF COURSE there is going to be another edition with the complete list of characters available where you don't have to pay for them as DLC, which let's face it, is an inevitability. And I'm still holding out hope for Raziel That said, this game will be a purchase, but only when the inevitable complete edition comes out. Still looks like it's going to be a blast to play anyway.

    I'm disappointed by this, but "launch characters" can mean anything, and there's still info to come apparently. Maybe all the characters were going to make it in, but since info is shared between SuperBot and BluePoint, perhaps it could make it to the Vita on time. Both come out at the same since Cross-Buy, and Sony can't miss the holiday season with this, so they left out the characters for free DLC day 1? I think the roster is bigger than 20, given Sid Shuman said "Stay Tuned" that same day, and 10% of the roster is Cole MacGrath.

    I would like to point out though, I would rather have a game with 19 unique characters than a game with 35 characters and half of them play the same.

    From what I have played of PSA (10 characters) all of them handled completely differently. Compare that to Smash (which has 35 characters I believe) and you have so many doubles that half that game should have just been costume swaps.

    So to everyone saying "I'm not going to buy this game because of the lack of characters. Instead I am going to go back home, watch the Crow and listen to some Simple Plan" go back and actually look at fighting game rosters and you will soon realize that More doesn't always mean Better.

    I see what your saying and I agree with your comment but SONY still could have had more characters and seeing that the price is now 60 dollars instead of 40 like it was originally rumored and even EB Games had it at priced at 40 as well should have warranted more characters. Still want the game but not at 60 bucks.
