DLC Character Rivalries

#1Raven-ZPosted 1/1/2013 4:56:52 PM
Rules;
*One rep per game series (spin-offs and spiritual successors are fine)
*Two characters per rivalry, no more, no less
*Both characters must share a publisher or IP holder
*Both characters must have appeared on a PlayStation platform at least once

Why do they have to share the same publisher? All of the 3rd party characters have a 1st party rival in the game already. I understand not sharing between two different 3rd party publishers, but why not have a 1st and 3rd party together?

My understanding is that when third party characters are in the main game, Sony has paid a flat-rate for the rights to use them (as they like) with the IP holders. With DLC sales, the content holders will make money per-sale. Therefore whatever content is in each DLC pack needs to be owned by a sole IP holder.

But this makes some sort of sense too.

still, i think they just share the sales... it will be part of the agreement when Sony negotiates with the 3rd party rep.

I love laharl to death, but if a disgaea rep had even the tiniest chance of getting in, Im almost positive Etna would get in over him hands down. Shes already appeared in two crossover rpgs, over him :/

Its commonly known on Gamefaqs that if anything is more evident than proven facts, its personal opinions.
