1. No stay tuned so snake was indeed consider unlike others, reason why he said wait for more character additions
2. Snake isn't a story character or he wouldvd mentioned raiden being the mgs rep
Due to the fact that we already have a MGS-rep, I don't care about Snake being in. Crash would be a nice addition. But Cloud or Lightning are a "must-in" so the roster is really complete. But what does the term "launch characters" mean? Could be all characters included in the game by launch or could mean all characters you start with and the others have to be unlocked.
