PlayStation All-Stars Come To Life in New Short Film From Creators of “Michael”

Mike Webster's Avatar Posted by on Oct 22, 2012 // Director, PlayStation First Party Games

Over the past few days we’ve released three short teasers filled with clues and a suspicious 10/23/12 date. As expected, nothing gets past the faithful members of the PlayStation Nation, as you quickly pieced together that these teasers are about PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale.

Last year, we released “Michael,” a campaign which paid homage to you, the gamer. We like to think of PlayStation All-Stars as a continuation of that as it was made as a tribute to gamers, tapping into PlayStation’s legendary history and featuring some of the your most beloved franchises in our first ever cross-over fighting game.

We’ve created this short live-action film called “The All-Star” to celebrate PlayStation All-Stars’ upcoming launch. The film will debut tonight on YouTube at Midnight EST (9:00PM PST), but we wanted to give the PlayStation Nation an advanced screening. Check it out below:

“The All-Star” contains an epic battle with four of the most iconic PlayStation characters, but the real star of the film is you, the gamer. We’ve hidden references from each of the storied franchises featured in the game — and a few extras to keep you on your toes. Take to the comments to share your favorites!

Be sure to pre-order your copy of PlayStation All-Stars, which launches for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 20th. If you can’t wait until then, put your skills to the test in the PlayStation All-Stars public beta, which is available now for PS Plus members and opens to all PSN users tomorrow.

Kratos is too abominably stupid a character for me to ever seriously think of buying this game.

Looks cool aside, but every time I saw him I’d be annoyed. He’s just too, too stupid to subject myself to anything having to do with him. Sorry.

@ buffpotato
At the very least they are better choices than Big Daddy, Raiden and Dante, the first started as an xbox exclusive and the last two because their designs and gameplay are based on games yet to be released in a supposed celebration of playstation.

Please add Spyro and Crash and some Resistance characters! I kinda expect this game to have ALL and EVERY playstation exclusive game characters in it. I just hope theirs more characters then whats displayed so far! It looks awesome already, I just want it to be better then super smash brothers so bad, cause I already like its character selection a little more so far. Just needs some more!

But more importantly. I’m playing the public beta and I’m enjoying it more than I thought I would. But there is one major sore spot. The hades level when the patapons show up. The patapon music you guys made up for it is offensively bad. As a huge patapon fan it’s really insults my senses. Save for the Fever none of it remotely sounds like it actually would have come from the patapon series. I hope this is just some place holder music because it really drives me nuts.

They really screwed up the wording on:

“We’ve created this short live-action film called “The All-Star” to celebrate PlayStation All-Stars’ upcoming launch. The film will debut tonight on YouTube at Midnight EST (9:00PM PST), but we wanted to give the PlayStation Nation an advanced screening. Check it out below:”

I thought there was going to be something more, and stayed up till 12am (I have work so its not easy staying up anymore). Nothing showed up, now I read the comments and realize they were just really ****ed up with the wording.

If it was only that, I am really dissapointed.

Played the beta and I actually had fun. I decided to go with Sweetooth because he was the only one that I really knew going back to the PSone years and honestly the dudes a son of a gun. But I’m still hoping for something?

I think the characters from the assassins creed franchise should be in play station all stars ( if theyre not already, i dont really know). Assassins creed is THE greatest franchise in ps history and i think if they want to make the best ps roster,they should have the characters from assassins creed.
