Are there more characters to talk about?
"Not that I'm willing to talk about roght now, haha." - Omar
Is Crash in?
We are very aware of several characters, like Crash, that fans really want, and we have to negotiate terms with the 3rd parties - Omar (paraphrased)
Skip to 8:30 for Omar's answer to the roster
"The launch roster is 20" - Omar
This reminds me of something, and this is important, it seems to me I recall Omar defining "DLC" as PAID for content, do you guys think they are planning on releasing more characters as free content after initial launch? Much like the Spatan Ops of Halo 4?
Omar said Crash would never be DLC, but that doesn't mean he (and others like him) can't be extra characters added post launch.
He also makes it sound like negotiations are still underway, for a game so close to launch that can only mean post launch content.
If they are still negotiating, then perhaps they don't even know the complete roster size quite yet, which explains the "roster will be bigger than you think" comment.
We might not have ALL their planned charaters until early next year, which makes for a good reason not to reveal more charatcers, since we wont get 'em for months!
They pushed the release date back a bit, to get as much content on disc as possible, but there's maybe just not enough time.
Then if the game has a lot of support post launch and people clamor for a certain character, they can consider doing more work and selling it as DLC.
This explains, well, pretty much everything, what do you guys think? I'll edit this post to clarify my thoughts as I best I can.
Plausible, but don't get your hopes up.
lol, yeah, I'm just tryin' to see a way where all the facts/quotes work together, rather than argue which facts are right and which are wrong, ya know?
I'm tired of fighting about how many characters are in the game, yes there are characters that I want, but I wont let them ruin the expirence. The only roster that I believe in is the one I will get when I open the disk on launch date (plus later DLC). I hoe that they release an expansion set with characters stages and skins.
God I know right? So tired, haha, sigh... This was my last push of thought before my brain went to jelly, now I'm just waitin' to have it in my hands.
