PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Could Be Announced Soon

The PlayStation mascots may be ready to go at it.

The rumors began earlier this year; they involved a game similar to Super Smash Bros. only with PlayStation characters. It's a darn good idea and now it seems Sony isn't far from announcing it.

According to PlayStation LifeStyle, Sony has registered the web address "http://playstationallstarsbattleroyale.com/" and furthermore, PSLS spotted a shorter url- "http://playstationallstars.com/." Therefore, it appears quite likely that a title called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale - or something along those lines - might be revealed very soon. And don't forget that Sony has teased the unveiling of a "huge new PS3 exclusive." God of War: Ascension has already been announced, so...

It's not a stretch to think we might be pitting Drake against Kratos towards the end of this year, or maybe it could be a truly bizarre confrontation between Ratchet and Solid Snake. Oh, the possibilities...

Even though this would be a rip off of SMB, I still want it. I really hope that Superbot did a bang up job. I've never heard of them, but if that one shot of Sweet Tooth that got leaked is any indication then I'm a little worried. ST is supposed to look like my picture on here, not a kid with his hand caught in the cookie jar like in the picture.

Any way, a minor worry. I hope this works out well for Sony, and if pulled off right would be cool. Hopefully they can successfully iterate on the great Smash Bros. formula.

I do wonder if it'll also include the older Playstation mascots (Crash Bandicoot, Cloud & Squall, 90's Lara Croft, Jak & Daxter... maybe even Tomba lol)

I think the title is a bit overboard. but I still think if done right, this game has a lot of potential to be something great :) I just think it would be awkward to fit that whole name on a box cover xD

Name's pretty god awful, and the concept doesn't really grab me, but if it turns out well in execution, it could be quite a fun little romp.

is this what $ony thinks the fans really want?
not a syphon filter remake.
not a new MGS game.
not a heavenly sword sequel.
not a medievil reboot.
not a 8 days revival.
not a the getaway 3 revival.
not a ape escape reboot.
but a crappy kids super smash brothers brawl wannabe!?
really!?
wow, $ony are so out of touch with their fan base its embarrassing!

Yeah, it's kinda funny to see sony try and copy nintendo with this, it's like all the devs that want to get a piece of the cod pie, except this is sony doing a copy/paste from nintendo.... sad.


Another thing that gets me, is who does sony really have to fill the roster with? are they just going to use characters that sony doesnt own? like from the FF series? .... I dunno, this game isnt even annouced, and to me it smells of death already. If you want a SSB game, go buy SSB, it really doesnt get better then that.

8 days I wanted that game so bad. It was army of two before army of two, but loooked way more sexy lol.

This allstars game could be good, give it a chance, It's been a pretty fair amount of people that's been wanting a sony version of smash bros./ powerstone for awhile now including me.

But yea I definitely would like to see 8 days make a comeback. Need more New IP's. tired of this gen's embrace of mutliple sequels.

last time i heard the developers were going to publish six days themselves so maybe hopefully will see it this year.
the games been done for ages, they just need to find the funds to publish it.
as phoenix said if you want a SSMB game go buy SSMB!
people buy a playstation for core games, not for crappy kids games!

this is exactly why nothing can be popular these days!
as soon as it becomes popular the industry clones it with every single game released, and then instead of it being popular and beloved it turns into COD!
its funny today a leaked animation wheel of one of the animators who worked at a $ony studio leaked today.
contained footage of the canned heavenly sword 2, 8 days, the getaway 3, and other footage of unannounced but canned games.
its so sad man looking at 8 days it looks like uncharted 2!
but remember that game was suppose to release in 08.
uncharted 2 blew everyone away releasing in 10, imagine the impact 8 days would of had if it released 2 years earlier!
i really wish $ony would go back to it, be it i dont care what a phone game, a vita game, or a ps4 game.
they NEED to go back to 8 days!
the getaway 3 looked pretty good too.

$ony needs to stop looking at the market and trying to copy everyone, and do what they WERE good at!
being ORIGINAL!
the ps3 is not famous for COD wannabes, its famous for its ambitious and unique games like LA Noire and heavy rain!
a SSMB game will be met with as much anticipation and success as rouge warrior did!

I dont think Sony is incharge of the production of a lot of the sequels you mentioned. Metal Gear is ps exclusive but isn't made by Sony. They are licensed by Sony so they have the rights so that may be why they could do this and not your other requests. A fighter including ps characters sounds kind of cool, not when you say smash bros but I'm trying to think more along the line of mortal kombat style fighting or marvel capcom. That would be Awesome!

Like I say in all other forums and article's about this game. All though it will be like smash bros. as far as the super mash up, I would prefer the play to be more like Powerstone 2, with a better combo system. As in

-3D space
-Environments that scales multiple parts of levels.
-4 guys on screen at once(6 at once would be cool just to be different)

Okay with the exception of 3d plane I know ssb's has those other features but i'm sure something like this with ps3's power will be cool.

And hopefully it's not catered to childish audience, even though I don't think it really can be with Kratos, Sweet Tooth and Snake involved.

It'll be rated T for Teen, or less. There's no way they would make this an M rated title.

A man can dream lol. Either way I don't think we should write off the game until we see gameplay. I know alot of people ages through 16-28 that bought a wii specifically for the smash bros.

It is crazy sony copying the idea but it can be great if executed properly.

The only thing that could make this interesting is Cole MacGrath.

I've wanted this type of game for 13 years on Playstation. I would spend so much time playing it that it's not even funny. Which is why I cant be excited right now because if it ends up being something different I'd be emotionally crushed. Hahaha.

anyone saying its a ripoff is an idiot nintnedo isnt the only company to make a game pitting their mascots against each other... thers been others hell number one candidate is capcom... how many games have been putt out? from pitting their own to crossing between games most notably the recent is SFxT but you have MvC
how about CvSnK?
nintendo's not the only one... others did it before smash bros came out in 99-2000 for n64 right? they werent the first... but anyway Go Sony! this wud like DECIMATE on the VITA

sum characters heres hoping:
Nathan Drake
Sweettooth
Solid Snake
Kratos
Nathin Hale?
A Chimaera?
Ratchet
Sly Cooper
Crash Bandicoot(but i guess he wudnt be an exclusive to PS anymore same as Spyro the Dragon)
SackBoy
Gabriel Logan/Lian Xing
Lara Croft (first TRxU game with them in it lol)
Helghast
Jak/Daxter

Thank you.

Im hoping to see a few others too:
Cole Mcgrath
Tomba
Wander
Nariko

There's so many others, but Im sure sony will pick some good ones and no doubt have DLC later based on feedback.

I hope its more or less exactly like smashbros just because its such a fun platform vs a normal fighter like tekken or SF. I just hope they dont change the look of characters to a kid/ chibi style like SF pocket fighters or something like that marvel super hero squad. But even if they did it wouldnt be a huge deal
