I don't understand. Each of the 3rd party roster characters are both All-Stars and have a history/connection with Playstation.
Raiden - MGS series was Playstation exclusive from 1996 - 2011.
Big Daddy - Bioshock/Irrational Games has a close tie with Playstation now (Vita game; Move for Infinite; Free Bioshock1 game with purchase of Infinite).
Dante - The First 3 DMC games were Playstation Exclusives.
Heihachi - Tekken was a Playstation Exclusive up until Tekken 6.
Sure, some of them have upcoming games--yet all of them are All Stars and all of them have their ties to Playstation.
Yeah, because Smash Bros. isn't meant to advertise Nintendo properties.... sort of how Pit was put in the game to advertise the reboot of the Kid Icarus franchise..
What you call "celebration," I call good advertising.
BTW - all the characters, besides Big Daddy, have an intimate connection to Playstation, unlike MGS Snake and Sonic have with Nintendo. Sonic being a competitor of Nintendo doesn't mean he is any more part of Nintendo's history than Master Chief is part of Playstation's history.
Even if it is advertising. What the hell
It has freakin BiG DADDy and Dante. lol . . heihachi, awesome, raiden, lol his fighting style is sick. . .
thats moneymakin? what, its freakin fan service also.
I rather have awesome 3. partys always. . . . . . . than 3 or 4 diffrent pokemon, really.
Dont compare those games ever in terms of characters.
(beside, talk did not end in the crash . .., you know what i mean. So dont talk, if its the final roster)
