"AusGamers: Obviously the other big component to a game like this, is unlockables .Obviously there’s got to be a few big surprises packed in there that people aren’t aware of yet. What sort of level of fandom can fans expect from what’s going to be hidden within the game? 

Omar: I think there’s a surprising amount. We have our basic roster of characters, and we have our levels, and those have a certain voice in terms of the celebration that I mentioned, and referencing different IP. Then we have our unlockables. We have what we call a progression system, where anything that you do in the game, has a reward mechanism associated to it, almost like an RPG where you’re levelling up, and as you level up, you get different rewards. 

It’s in those rewards where we’re able to do really deep dives into various IP, and even focus on different worlds and Universes that may not be represented with a character or a level. It really helps us to reinforce that concept that concept of being a real celebration of the vast PlayStation history --not just saying “we’re going to stop at these twenty characters”, we’re actually going to go as far as we can, and do as thorough a deep dive as possible, into the entire PlayStation history.

Lol, this is confirmation of 20 characters. If you don't really understand what he means by this don't worry, but trust me I promise you. He's saying we are doing more than just the 20 characters, we are having minions, intros and outros, items, stages, etc that represent even more ips

I'm going to also assume he's referring to DLC, which we all already knew about.

"our basic roster of characters" are referring to the 20 characters, but using the word basic to imply that there are other things, as he talks about in the next few things he says. the unlocks

and no he's not referring to dlc , he's talking about ondisk content

Nothing new here I guess, just more interpreting on whether or not there are hidden characters or later reveals when he stated that 20 is it. Been there done that.
