Over a week ago? Do you have a link or some proof beyond "Paul Gale or so-and-so said so". Because proof would be delightful.
Colton, I have Crash as my avatar because I like Crash, and I've had this since I had a PSN account. It's the one I like best and I'm not willing to pay for an Asura's Wrath avatar.
But as for your statement, yes I would be ecstatic if Crash were to be DLC. But I accept the fact that he might not be. I long ago accepted that he wasn't going to be on the main roster, and I'll accept it if they never make him DLC.
I say this because I'm trying to differentiate themselves from those frothing mad fanboys that basically stick their fingers in their ears and refuse to listen.
I was there during the event, and while the tournament was being set up, Seth Killian announced over the microphone that the game will officially have DLC support; characters and stages. I wasn't paying attention, and he repeated himself. Anyone who made it to the NYCC tournament can vouch for me.
