PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

E3 2012 is just days away, and we’ve got one more way for you to get in. It won’t be easy, but it’s definitely going to be fun.

With the upcoming PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale featuring the biggest names in PlayStation history clashing in battle, we’re celebrating with an E3 cosplay contest outside the Los Angeles Convention Center. This Tuesday, June 5th at 12:00pm, come dressed as your favorite PlayStation All-Stars character for a chance to win a three-day pass into E3. You could also win a PS Vita or even a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2012!

You need to be 18 years old to participate and be ready for us to capture you on video for broadcast on the PlayStation Network during our live E3 coverage.

So come dressed as your favorite All-Star (or any of the PlayStation characters – we love them all!) and make sure to arrive at the corner of Figueroa and Pico before 12:00pm this Tuesday to be part of the Day 1 fun of E3 2012.

What: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Cosplay Challenge (i.e. a chance to get into E3!)
Where: The corner of Figueroa & Pico in downtown Los Angeles (by the Convention Center South Hall Entrance)
When: 12:00 Pacific Time, Tuesday, June 5th
Who are the All-Stars?: Kratos, Sly Cooper, Sweet Tooth, Fat Princess, PaRappa, Colonel Radec

We look forward to see you there. If you can’t make it, look for the results during our livestream coverage from E3 next week!

I mean to dress as him, even though he may or may not be announced to be in that game?

So if Kevin Butler came without a costume, he’d be able to get in?

Should be hilarious and a very clever promotion.

So, all the babies crying earlier because they weren’t 21 yet and it was so unfair, put up or shut up!

What if we’re already going and want to cosplay anyways? Swag for E3 attendees willing to dress up?

    A PS VITA is the BEST swag I can think of. So get out there to win it!

@ 3, if they don’t use Kevin Butler, and have him ride onto the stage triumphantly in a kart, they should fire their entire PR staff. E3 is the time and place for showmanship, not boring corporateship.

@6, well, if your costume is on that list & is good enough, you’ve just earned another ticket. Hopefully you can pass on to a friend. But again, you need to win- no prize unless the judges choose you.

    I have a feeling there might be fewer Fat Princesses that show up, so by doing so you might up your chances to win! And srsly, who doesn’t like cake?

I think it’s awesome you guys let a few of us into E3. However it’s kind of a dower to everyone who isn’t local. It would be awesome if you did something a few months out for people willing to book flights and hotels to go.

“You could also win a PS Vita or even a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2012!”

Mind if I talk more about All stars on the VITA? No, well how about Comic Con. “Con”, now that is what I would call a situation where All Stars would miss the VITA! Miss, you know if the All Stars game will land on the VITA? Who am I? I’ll tell you who I’m not, a man who will not stand for secrets. Say, just whisper on my ears something secret about All Stars and VITA. I wont tell. . . . Oh, just be sure to make it a yes or no confirmation about All Stars heading to the VITA.

SOOooOOoooo any word on third party allstars like Sora from Kingdom Hearts 1? Or Valkyrie Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII-2? Even my friends who dont play KH or FF are hoping for them :D

I am so pumped for PlayStation All-Stars and can’t wait to see the full roster of characters that will be available in the final product.
I totally agree with #15. It would be beyond awesome to see Sora in that game or any other Kingdom Hearts characters. 3rd party characters could easily add something to the game and make it all the more better.

Y’all are so lucky I’m not in LA; I’ve got Fat Princess on lock.

Well, I’m working on a Cole McGrath outfit, but there’s two problems with that:
1. It’s not close enough to being finnished.
2. I don’t live near Los Angeles nor do I have the means to get there.

So, yeah… :P

Why couldn’t I have known about this like last week, the shipping dates for a Sweet Tooth mask is over a week. I could have easily come as Sweet Tooth lol

“So come dressed as your favorite All-Star (or any of the PlayStation characters – we love them all!)”

I hate to safely assume this but does this mean exclusive playstation characters, or could it also be games that are on multi platform. Like such as street fighter, mortal kombat or anything from mvc3? Do you think it would fly or is that a huge stretch in what they are looking for.
