I like her and she fits in the universe!

Same here. and honestly, I think they chose the right characters to put in.

 

Kratos and Nathan Drake are popular and recognizable characters in the 'hardcore' gamer community.

Big Daddy is very recognizable and will attract non-playstation gamers.

Raiden is a very recognizable charcter, especially with MGR:R around the corner, he is on people's minds' right now.

Sly Cooper also has a new game coming up and is on people's minds' right now.

Ratchet and Sackboy are very iconic playstation characters with the 'hardcore', and moreso, children.

And Finally Fat Princess shows that there are girls in the game and will attract possibly a younger female audience.

 

At least that's how I see it.

Should be more characters! But it's way better than the european one. I'm gonna have to import this game...

However I like the 'fake' one way better!

^Same here.

I really wish that they had done some original art for the box art instead of using the same old copy paste images.

But I'm not too bummed over it, it's a decent box art. it's not Phalanx, that's for sure.

Wow, not impressed at all. They just took the generic character images from the website and used them to frame the title.

 

While it's safe for any consumer to assume that this game is a fighting game off the title alone--the cover gives you nothing to guess what the actual game is like. 

 

They really should have gone with more characters battling it out like on the 'leaked' cover a while back.

 

Another problem I have with this is Raiden being on the cover. I have no idea what they're hoping for by putting him there--unless it was part of the contract to get him as a fighter they'd put him on the cover--but he has no selling power compared to some of the characters on the roster who do. Seriously should have gone with Cole McGrath.

Eh, the only one I have a problem with is Big Daddy, but besides that, cool.

Nothing against inFamous, but with MGS2 selling over 7 million, and MGS4 selling more than 5 Million, I'd say that Raiden is much more popular and recognizable than Cole is.

However, nobody was getting either of those games for Raiden (many people were displeased with the character's role in MGS2 anyway)--Snake was the main draw. 

 

Plus, for a series that is much younger than MGS, Infamous' sales aren't bad either: 2.25 Million (not including the millions that were sent out for free after the PSN outtage in 2011) for InFamous and 1.3 Million for InFamous2 is nothing to sneeze at in the slightest for a newer, **exlcusive** IP.
