It's Kratos vs. Nathan Drake vs. Cole McGrath vs. Sackboy.

October 23, 2012 / 12:01 AM EDT / (@salromano)

Over the past few days, Sony has released a series of short videos teasing something for an October 23 reveal. It has turned out to be a new campaign for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale from the same people who brought you last year’s campaign that foreshadowed the fighter, “Michael” (or “Long Live Play”).

The new TV spot sees Kratos, Nathan Drake, Cole McGrath, and Sackboy take against one another in a live-action battle.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is due for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 20.

    Beta comes out today can’t wait to get in. Drake Vs. Cole looked epic because Uncharted and Infamous are my favorite two franchises on PS3. Kratos pissed at the end looking at the gamer was funny. Sackboy LOL!!!

    Am I the only one who thinks Kratos looks like Stallone?

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      The angle of his jaw does but that is the only comparison I can see between the two.

  • PrinceHeir

    No FF VII Cloud, Lara Croft, Crash, Spyro, real Dante, Snake…..no buy

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      Oh God more whining.

        Hahaha!
        Unlike these complainers I have been playing the beta on my Vita and having a lot of fun with it.

        Apparently its not popular to say anything good about anything Sony related on the web.

        *grabs you by your collar and shakes you back and forth vigorously continuing to whine and complain*

        • KingOptimusOrigins111

          LOL!!! to bad its the internet so its physically impossible.

      I love Cloud, but I rather have Lightning if there’s gonna be a Final Fantasy rep <3

      Though I agree-there's a lot of characters I wish were revealed. I keep hoping it's Sony just trolling us and they ARE in the game, lol

        But lightning makes no sense

        Clou is Iconic and loved,and he is important to the ps brand.Lightning is hated and not important to any console :

        • new_tradition

          I disagree. I personally love Lightning a whole lot and I know many other people like her too. I think she has managed to become a face of the current generation of gaming, and I recall her being in that “Michael” ad to boot.

          I don’t disagree that Cloud has many fans, but he gets quite a bit of hate too. I think more people didn’t like the actual FFXIII game-Lightning herself was much better received, I think *rubs chin*

          • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

            While I personally dont hate her ,she is hated by most ff fans,13 in general is the most despised of the series(warranted or not) beyond that she isnt seen as iconic,cloud defined a generation of gaming and ff7 changed the way rpg’s and games in general are made,it makes no sense to have lightning over cloud.

            I love Lightning. She is my favorite character in both 13 games, with Fang coming in as a close second. (I think they are both really pretty too. ^^ )

            I’m not sure I agree with King about how she is hated by most FF fans. The most vocal fans online always seem to be the ones with some negative to say. I think fans like Light quite a bit, the biggest complaint I heard about 13-2 was that it didn’t have enough Lightning in the game.

            I think she is a strong female lead character, which we need more of in games. With that said, I’d like to see both her and Cloud make it into PSBAR. I don’t see why not, the only hold up could maybe have to do with some silly licensing crap.

      • Budgiecat

        Cloud makes more sense in the grand scheme of things in terms of classic All stars and overall most popular and iconic and influential games on Sony’s library.

        Lightning only makes sense in terms of S-E trying to promote FF XIII LR much in the same way Konami/Platinum is trying to promote MG Rising with having Raiden in the game, Namco is trying to promote TTT2 by having young Heihachi in the game, and Capcom/Ninja Theory is trying to promote DmC by having new fake Dante in the game all of which I don’t really agree with…meh

      maybe there are appear in game as……………………………. DLC T_T

    That was a very cool TV spot.

    I haven’t played the new beta client, are they allowing you to pick more modes and more characters yet? I played the private beta a few months back, which I’m sure some of you recall. (It seemed like a very early build of the game.)

    I was sorta hoping this new (beta) version had more modes and characters to try out.

    • Dean Winchester

      Theres at least 6 or more characters in the beta. A short basic single player tutorial and then online battle mode.

      I find it to be quite a bit of fun.
      Simple straightforward gameplay meant to be a good time.

      Im sure the gaming complanity….er community and especially the gaming media will completely bash and hammer this game though. Meanwhile the next smash bros game will be worshipped.

    I played the beta, but didn’t really enjoy it.  With 4 players the camera zoomed way back and the action was so fast that it was difficult to see which character you were using.  I’m hoping for an adventure mode.
