UPDATE - The following statement relating to the leak has been published on the official PlayStation blog.
"There was an unexpected and unintended leak in our beta that allowed fans to be able to see some additional content. We’ve enjoyed reading all of the fan reaction and are thrilled that so many of you are excited to learn more about our character roster and level mash-ups, however we are still in development and the leaked content does not fully represent the final product nor the incredible efforts that were made to make these elements truly spectacular. This will be evident in the coming weeks as this content is officially revealed, beginning with our next character announcement at Gamescom in a couple of weeks."
Following the deluge of leaked information about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale that landed this week, Sony has allegedly released an official comment, which has been quoted via a Game Informer employee’s Twitter account.
Jim Reilly tweets “Sony says PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal leaked content "does not fully represent the final product." Next character reveal at Gamescom.”
So far we have information, some of it official some of it rumour, revealing that there will be 20 characters in the PlayStation All-Stars, 14 stages, 17 weapon and items and a host of game modes.
PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is due for release on October 23, 2012 on PS3 and PS Vita.
there also not saying that all those leaked characters arnt in the game.
IE they could be saying they wont look like those pictures that were made for the leak, the levels that were leaked could look different, the game modes that were leaked could not all be in.
it could be alot of things. I believe that all those characters that were announed are going to be in
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"
