How poorly PlayStation is actually represented

*In reference to this list and the addition of Heavy Rain: http://www.ign.com/wikis/playstation-all-stars-battle-royale/First_Party_Properties?objectid=123511

Considering Sony's 107 different exclusively owned series/games, that seems like a hefty amount of characters to consider. Well in most people's opinion they did a great job with this game. If we break down those 107 series, remove the third party characters, add the two DLC characters, and don't consider the stages as proper representation, check this out.

Of the 107 games/series, 16 of them are represented in this game. That's 15% of PlaySation's games and series represented as playable characters in this game. Good or really as lacking as we've tried to point out? I just thought this was in interesting point.

The vast majority of Sony IPs shouldn't be in this.

As it has been said, Sony doesn't own their properties in the same way Nintendo does. They own Team Ico and they were still able to slap em in the face and say "NOPE!" when they asked for Wander or Ico.

Well it would've taken some time to go to every individual IP Holder and ask them for some representation, Plus why only playable characters?

Stage reps are reps too!

That's 24%!

P.S Whats with all the Fake DLC listings?

Lol, items? Are you seriously saying that an item is a good representation of an IP?

Discounting stages is very unfair considering that not every franchise you refer to as not being representated would not fit as a character. Yeah I really wanna play as a car from destruction derby...that's why we have stages, cause stages can help us preresent franchises that would not fit as characters.

Therefore I think your misguided to say that stages do not count as representation.

Plus as people have said, its not always easy to get permission to use certain IPs.

even then, what are the IPs in the stages that are actually not associated with the roster?

Buzz, Hot Shots, Patapon, and Locoroco. and they're all mash-ups, not even stages. out of the possible 40 (stage + mashups) reps, only 4 are NOT associated with the roster. how's that for representation?


stages could've used representation from games that won't make sense to have a character (like Warhawk, Gran Turismo, etc.). yeah, i said Warhawk. it needs a stage, not a forgettable character no one remembers.
