PS1 to PS2 to PS3 to Handheld Ratios

26 replies 724 views Edited Apr 9, 2013

Some kid was whining about how we dont have enough PS2 characters. Well.

 

We have 6 PS1 guys (Spike, Heihachi, Sir Dan, Parappa, Sweet Tooth, Toro)

 

We have 8 PS2 guys (Raiden, Dante, Sly, Ratchet, Jak, Radec, Zeus, Kratos)

 

We have 9 PS3 guys (Big Daddy, Nathan, G Cole, E cole, Sackboy, Emmett, Isaac, Fat Princess, Nariko)

 

And we have 1 PSP/PS Vita guy (Kat)

 

 

So what I'm saying is, we need more PS1 characters, but more importantly more PSP and PS Vita characters! 

 

Too many PS2/PS3 guys!

Radec is PS3, but I agree with you. PS1 needs more representation

Killzone was on the PS2. I know he wasn't in it, but you get the idea

I think they should be equal in terms of representation. But the PSP/Vita doesn't have that many reps that could be used for this game.

Also, most of the characters people are asking for are PS1 characters. Crash, Sypro, Cloud, and Tomba are pretty requested. Of course, adding 4 more PS1 characters would once again throw the generation ratio out of balance.

But I'm sure these people wouldn't care. As long as they got their nostalgia fix.

Apart from hardcore gamers who have been with Playstation since PS1, going with PS2 and PS3 characters is always goign to be the most popular choice.

I never had a PS1, so I don't raelly care about the characters, but throw in a Ps2 or PS3 character and I'll always favour it over PS1 characters unless the PS2/PS3 character is a truly boring character that adds no value to the game.

Why do you think Smash always remains success of Sales, only cause of All the characters Almost everyone in the world knows either have grew up with Nintendo since childhood or those that hate playing games but can still reconise the brawlers such as Mario or bowser.

 

AllStars has most characters that only This gen gamers knows while has quite lag of characters the gamers have grew up with since the very beginning of Playstation as the PSone classics.

 

Which is why i believe that PSone characters is most important to get first then get the others in PS2, PSP then the rest in PS3 & Vita and then finally PS4.

No, PSASBR had crappy marketing and yes having Crash, Spyro would have been good but I don't think just because Crash and Spyro were in the game it would have suddenly become as successful as Smash.

Outside of Patapon and Locorocco, which are already represented in game, there aren't many exlusive portable franchises. Most of the best sellers (Peace Walker, Crisis Core, Birth By Sleep, 2048, Golden Abyss, etc.) are from an established series.
