Let me make this incredibly clear for all the ignorant people who are still saying this stupid statement.
LARA CROFT is NOT THE SAME AS NATHAN DRAKE.
You have NEVER played a tomb raider game if you think it's the same as Drake. Lara can jump incredibly high and do somersaults all over the place. She has dual pistols, magnums, shotgun, harpoon gun, grenade launcher. She fights animals more than humans (in the good games). She is OLDER and the original adventurer. She finds and uses artifacts all the time. Drake only finds treasure.. learn's they're cursed, and runs away.
Croft is a better candidate for this game than Drake is (please note that I love Uncharted, but this is the truth.. Lara is a better icon and has a far more interesting moveset.)
Adding Lara Croft would be great, because not only would the true playstation oldschool fans be happy, we'd get a really cool rivalry between lara and drake form. I'd love to duke it out with the two greatest adventure heroes of all time (in video games...indy is still the most badass sorry)
So please... for the love of god.. do not say they are too similar next time someone mentions Lara Croft.. or else you appear to be a complete ignorant bafoon. Sorry... but man does that annoy me being a huge fan of both titles.
Sorry, that last post was so long... that topicis very important.
Hitman has had every single title on a Playstation console. I'm not positive if they started on PS1 or PS2, but my brother owns all of the first 3 hitmans on PS2 and I'm looking at them right now. Agent 47 does have a history of being on the Playstation. In addition, Agent 47 has come back in Hitman Absolution on ALL consoles including PS3. So yes... he can be considered easily. If you disagree.. just look at Big Daddy....... he's not a "Playstation Icon" but he made it (note that I love Bioshock and am glad Big Daddy is in the game.
Agent 47 originated on the playstation. and is highly associated with the playstation brand. i think he would be a great fit for psasbr, he would focus on sigle'ing opponents out, using stealthy/quick tactics to gain AP.
Mario kills turtles..... kratos kills gods.
looking for some art to look at! look no further!
Kane & Lynch + Agent 47 would be possible but just aren't in demand, and their moveset wouldn't be all that great (although SuperBot could make it work).
FF Rep seems more likely for the inevitable sequel, although even then they may not allow it.
Adam Jenson, another possibility although similar case as Kane & Lynch, there hasn't been much fan demand for his inclusion, although his potential moveset would be amazing.
Rayman, as you've corrected is owned by Ubisoft and could very well be included, as the characters presence on the Playstation is strong, and Ubisoft is very close with Sony however I believe Connor would be a more likely rep from the studio as Sony owns exclusive rights with Ubisoft over the franchise ala Bioshock.
I think Ubisoft won't have just one character to give. Conner, Rayman, the Prince of Persia, any of the Tom Clancy characters are potentials (though I probably woulnd't recommend anyone but Sam at the least)
I think we can all agree that Adam Jensen would be an absolute fantastic rep for this game. It dawned on me as I was playing Hitman Absolution and seeing all the easter eggs like Kane&Lynch hidden in the crowds and a Lara Croft bag at the gunshop.
I'll start a new thread about Adam Jensen, maybe we can see how much everyone wants Adam!
