Because you can unlock minions. It doesn't say Playable Characters does it? It's marketing.

Then they'd be labeled as minions, marketed or not, most people will see it as playable characters in which case it can come off as false advertising if the minions were the case.

Perhaps, but there's more evidence pointing to more than 20 characters than just that like Paul Gale's source and the fact that we were told before that it would be 20+ characters, and going back to Paul Gale's source, immediately after the game was delayed he got confirmation that the roster would be over 22 characters and one of the previous confirmations was that we were supposed to get more than 2 female characters, right now there's exactly 2.

So many things say there is something more. At this point I think it is guaranteed there will be more characters. The question is when (DLC vs Surprise Unlockables vs etc)

Ofcourse it is false advertising, but that is the nature of marketing. You stretch the truth as much as possible that you can still claim it as truth, the way games say their the campaigns last 10-20 hours yet the average gamer probably only gets 6 or 8. It's a guide trying to make itself as desirable as possible, in an age when 100% of it's information is going to be online for free. You are unlocking characters by unlocking minions, you just can't play as them only use them. Why would they say minions anyway since some people might not even know what a minion is.

 

Think and feel what you want but Sony, Omar, pretty much every single person speaking about it from Superbot has confirmed over and over again that these twenty characters are the launch line up, the entire on-disc roster of characters, there will be no hidden or unlockable characters. Yes rumors / people have stated there are more than 20 characters because there will be, we know this as fact. We also know there will be DLC characters.

 

20 on disc characters + any DLC characters = 20+ characters.

 

Congrats, you've fallen for marketing tricks and been mislead while they've never actually lied about anything.

 

Also PG is hardly a source to trust when he has stated that his information could be false (and used to try and find the mole giving him information) and that he has stated he doesn't know if the characters he knows of are DLC or main roster. So PG could be completely right since we know, as stated again, 20 characters are on disc and there will be DLC.
