pedro - the assumption being made right now is that Kat will be paired with another character & Emmet with another, each being rivals and both character packs being free for the first 2 weeks.

Ok I'm startinf a theory, what if they do two weeks free with a couple sets of DLC and each set has a highly demanded character and a ok character. Look at how it is now

 

Most Wanted: Kat

Popular character: Emmett Graves

 

And by the looks of it these two aren't rivals, so it would sorta make sense

Aha but now you've gotta think from a marketing standpoint. They just announced one of the most demanded characters and a completely unexpected character. Kat is shown to give immediate satisfaction to all of the people who demanded her (and there were a lot) and Emmet is shown to say that anyone has a shot and there are bound to be more surprises. 

 

This sets them up to build speculation/hype and announce an even higher demanded character (example: Crash, Cloud, or Snake) later on to an even warmer reception. 

 

Assuming they do have an even higher-demanded character.

it said in the article to look out for more DLC news coming soon.  i think the rivals for them will be announced soon.  theyre just doing it this way to hype it up.  that's my prediction

It sounds more plausible now after having it explained to me. I guess VGA's would be the place to do it, but wouldn't be surprised now if that didn't happen - with the way these two were announced.

We would like to release more, so hopefully Kat and Emmett are just the first.'

This comment is a lot like the one in the previous blog post in which he first told a person to check back for some happy news soon, and then replied to another person saying 'if we have DLC...'.

well lets say the game gone glod afew weeks ago and the chars will be released early january still it takes them like 2 months to do 2 chars  so i doubt we will be getting more than 4 chars in all since they should be working on another game from 4 months from now, most games except LBP get dlcs for like 2*3 months max and then die  so i predict we will be getting 4 chars max maybe afew stages

It did seem like an out of the blue announcement. Maybe they are planning even bigger ones at VGA's? Would make sense.

It also makes me think of how Omar didn't seem sure if whether they were going to do one lump of DLC or support it for a long while. His answer gave me the impression that they had a big lump planned, but would support it more if there was still demand.
