First of all, I have no problem at all with this roster. There were a few more characters that I would have like to have seen, but this is fine. I think there are a few reasons why people would be unhappy if this was the final roster. Most fighting games have many more than 20 characters. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (great game, by the way) has 55 characters with more DLC on the way. Yes, this is the first game. However, that should not matter, especially in a game that is supposed to represent Playstation history. Also, there are many important characters missing, with strange choices instead. Crash, Spyro, Cloud, Snake, Sora, Wander/Ico, and Chimera/Hale are all absent. However, we do have Raiden, Big Daddy, new Dante, two Coles, and Nariko (although, she was highly requested, so I suppose she is alright). Again, I really like this roster. Some of the characters I listed above are some of the best characters in the game. Also, we do have a lot of characters that I am happy about. My PS2 Trio, Parappa, Spike, Good Cole, Drake, Kratos, Heihachi, Sackboy, etcetera. I think this is going to be a great game regardless of whether there are more characters or not.

didnt mean to kudo you.

Yeah I wanted crash, spyro, cloud etc etc.. that's not even my pickle.. My pickle is they didn't even add ONE SINGLE rpg character.. I mean I don't get it.. if these rumors are true then we have been lied to on that part. I'm still getting the game, got it pre orderd but that is very disapointing if true. Playstation wouldn't be what it is today without rpgs and jrpgs srpgs trpgs. Im serioiusly hoping SB comes out and de confirms this

people are **bleep** because they say the game is made for the fans, but the fans arent getting what they want.

yep, and a perfect example is NARIKO. SHE IS NOT A PS ALLSTAR, DOES NOT deserve to be in this game, and she is clearly there for ADVERTISINIG purposes. It wasn't a conicidence her new game was announced the day before her reveal

Re: What's wrong with 20 characters?

I like how people think the roster size is bad because Smash had 26 in 2002, when only 12-14 were actually new (maybe even fewer because there were characters cut from SSB64 that were probably put in Melee). Guess what? It's not space that's really an issue. It's the concept of a roster over 20, when no big fighting game has ever started with more than 20 in its first game, minus KoF (the reasons for which Marrow already explained). Hell, if space was an issue, it'd be the Vita's 4GB, not the PS3's 25+, that would be the standard by which this game should be judged, because that's the limiting factor.

When you take the entire game out of context and throw the number 20 at face value, anyone can make that seem bad. However, if you take ANY game out of context, it's pretty easy to make it seem bad. If SFV or SSB4 came out with 20 characters, complaints would at least make some sense, because they each have a background that should prohibit that. This is the background. 20 games for a new IP made by a new developer is unheard of. Even Netherrealm, a developer that's been making fighting games for over a decade, may only get around 20 characters into Injustice. Expecting a green developer to get over 20 because the PS3 can hold it is the most basic, childish argument I've ever heard, because it literally throws away all logic.

Except it was cancelled in April 2012.  And the only thing "announced" any time near her PSAS announcement about that game was the announcement that there was some concept art leaked of a cancelled game.  Yeah, totally advertising.

I don't care who the heck you are. If you think two Coles over an entire genre was a good idea than you have problems. I also love it how people think they are beng mature just because they are accepting the crap that is happening.
