Playstation All Stars: Battle Royale

Sony, I can understand wanting to rip off Smash Bros. It's a big, successful, fun thingamajig that takes advantage of decades of franchises and characters.

But don't you need, like... franchises and characters first? I mean, let's count what you guys have to work with here:
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Nathan Drake
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Kratos
  • Uh...
  • That redhead chick from that game no one bought?
  • Flower??
  • ...
  • ...
  • That burlap muppet thing from Little Big Planet?
The first Smash Bros. had 12 characters. Street Fighter II had 8 playable characters, and 4 boss characters. They had Donkey Kong and Blanka. You guys have Dane Cook in Tomb Raider.

I'm not saying this was a bad idea at any time. But it's either too early or way too late to be doing this. You haven't got enough exclusive franchises to build on yet, but it's also too late to go back and throw in Crash Bandicoot or Spyro the Dragon.

A very strange and desperate turn of events... Which I know is par for the course with you guys, but still.
