A while back, before the site change, many of you may remember me sending superbot the following message. You wanted an update so here it is!:
"I was watching the GameSpot interview for All Stars Battle Royale when I saw the GameSpot guy ask a question:
He said, "Now this game will be the same on the Vita as it is on the PS3, right? Including characters and all?"
And Omar replied, "Actually I can't really comment on the character front yet"
-of course those aren't exact quotes, but I was wondering...
Based on this, will the Vita version have fewer charcters? I think we all were expecting the same experience as the PS3 owners get. I think if the Vita had less characters, it woul hinder many from buying the Vita version. Or will it be like a 'Soul-Calibur-like' thing where the ps3 gets, let's say, 4 different characters while the Vita has 4 different characters than the ps3 one? Like... Vita exclusives and Ps3 exclusives? I'd think that would be a better idea than just leaving some characters out on the Vita. I don't think we'll want a watered-down version of the game.
Thank you for your time and I hope for a response!"
I just got a reply, roughly a month later. Here it is:
"Hi (Name left out for privacy),
Thank you for your contact and your interest in our game.
I believe that Omar was just being careful as we are not supposed to comment on certain things until we are ready to message them out to the fans as part of our marketing.
That being said, we all agree with your sentiments wholeheartedly and although I can't say anything about the Vita version, I am confident that you will enjoy our game.
Please stay tuned. More info and reveals to come!
Here's a few things to note about the colours I placed here (What my highlightes mean):
Red: Things that make me feel safe about the response
Blue: Things that make me worried about the response
Green: Just there to highlight the messages and distinguish them from my regular texts here on this site.
Now, they never 100% stated that it will be EXACTLY the same; other sites just made that assumption and placed it as gospel. Unless somebody can give me a legitimate quote from SuperBot, I'm going to believe that the Vita version may or may not be different from the PlayStation 3 version.
So what do you all get from said message?
