What if the reason for the delay..

20 replies 279 views Edited Oct 6, 2012

Was because SuperBot had to remove certain characters? Think about it, this has happened before with Square Enix and Geno with Brawl and his stage.

 

Check out this scenario:

 

SuperBot gets the rights to Crash & Cloud

 

SuperBot gets to work

 

Out of nowhere, SE and Activistion close off the deal because they made a 'foolish' mistake knowing they could of gotten more $.

 

SuperBot has to set up a delay because they have to remove all traces of these characters and their stages/mashups from the game.

 

/Scenario.

 

They don't want to disappoint their fans, so they tell us they set up a delay to "polish" the game some more. Now think about this. CALLING ALL BETA TESTERS! Most of us have gotten the privilege to get our hands on the beta and the demo. Have you actually noticed anything clipping or odd? I certainly had no problems with the frames. In my honest opinion, I don't think it was polishing.

 

BUT, I also find it hard to believe 20 characters is the final set up (Especially those pulling out random numbers out their ***). But this theory supports PG's Intel of 22+ and why he was caught off guard.

 

Opinions?

That'd be one hell of a pull. Unlikely.

I still find it strange that they released all their characters so early. Something seems off.

I doubt it. This would be a major sour note in the relationship between those corporations if done after the agreement was reached. Not to mention, it could easily constitute a breach depending on how the contract was structured and worded.

 

I think they just couldn't get these characters and are now trying to get the rights for some of them as DLC.

They MAY have, don't forget, characters don't make up the whole game, they still have a cr*p ton of stuff to reveal!

Yeah except if they did get the rights to Crash and Cloud, SE and Activision couldn't pull out of the deal as easily you make it out to be.

Theory wrong.

Once you make a contract you would receive rights to use whatever characters in a set amount of games, ads, and use in story. So no i dont believe its possible to void a contract that easily. I think the month delay was to work on the campaign
This is relevant to my inetrest

Ehh not really. I assume that they had the announcment schedule set up before they decided to dely in which case that it would make perfect sense to have all the charaters announced a couple weeks before the game hits shelves
