1: superbot themselves confirmed over 20 charecters.
2: prima offical stratedgy guide has allowed strong possibility of unlockable charecters.
3: Sid shuman, the person who said "only 20", does not work for superbot.
4: Andrew goldfarb, the person who wrote the "only 20" article" on IGN is not aware of the final roster himself like his counterpart Colin moriarty.
1: superbot is preparing for a surprise charecter showing and or hiding their final secret charecters.
2: sid shuman is posting without permission much like the "no unlockables" incident on the ps blog
andrew goldfarb also posts a lot of bull, hes one of two people on IGN i can say i really dislike because all his reviews and stuff are utter garbage.
1. SuperBot has literally never said there would be over 20 characters in this game. By may have said things that could strongly imply it, but they have NEVER actually said over 20.
2. The Prima guide does mention unlockable characters. It doesn't say those characters are beyond the 20. It's possible we have to unlock some of the already announced characters.
3. Sid Shuman is well-known and established at Sony. And Sony is who has been in charge of revealing information. Many of the news we've received throughout this time has originated from the PSN Blog which he is in charge of. He's about as valid of a source as you can get.
4. The IGN article is a moot point because it just references this other information.
sid is the guy who said snake, spyro and crash would be in too or whatever...so...there ya go.
Lightning isn't in the last female is kat they already confirmed her like I said
Ya see, when I read stuff like this on the forum, it makes me wonder how much other conjecture has become fact; how much of the supposed "facts" that people spout about the game are based on rumour.
I'd say like 50% of the stuff asserted on here is unconfirmed.
