Today, we’re happy to announce that the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Beta will kick off for PlayStation Plus members on PS3 tomorrow, October 16th and expand to everyone October 23rd through PlayStation Store! What’s more, as a special treat, PS Vita users will be able dive right into the multiplayer beta starting tomorrow – no Plus subscription required. The Beta will support Cross-Play, so PS3 and PS Vita owners will be able to fight with and against each other.

This, of course, is only a tiny fraction of what PlayStation All-Stars has to offer, but we thought you’d love the chance to try it early and see what all the buzz is about. Be sure to hop on quickly as we’ll be ending the Beta on October 30th!

But that’s not all. As you know, we have a pre-order program running right now that unlocks a set of exclusive costumes in the game. Today we’re happy to unveil the rest of the costumes you’ll be getting with your pre-order of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

oh man i was so eagerly waiting to play this. what a let down, im going to keep trying though


October 16th, 6:38 pm

I’m the same as e’rybody else. I’m eagerly on my Vita, but patiently waiting to ‘connect’ to a game. Hopefully this will happen before the night is over. Feel free to add me, or send me a message if my Gtag is to hard to remember. The more friends the better I say. I’ve already pre-ordered Ragnarok Odyssey Online so I’ll be willing to party up for that game as well. Phantasy Star Online 2 is also on my list to get. Vita baby!!

racer15crx1 said:

October 16th, 9:51 pm

The beta is amazing! I love this game wow lol. Now I am ready to preorder since my expectations were exceeded by far..

Kanon_of_Gemini said:

October 16th, 10:19 pm

I liked it, but there were no characters in the Beta that I like… I’m aiming to Drake, and hopefully Ezio/Connor or Snake with a some luck Cloud…. but, until that happens I’m getting Persona 4 The Golden First.

JEquis said:

October 16th, 10:49 pm

it happened again- i picked sly cooper, then when the fight started i was kratos

racer15crx1 said:

October 16th, 11:20 pm

i think i know what the number is for, its how they pair up fighters…the higher the number the harder the enemy, rank 205 atm

racer15crx1 said:

October 17th, 12:06 am

So after playing the Beta for both Ps3 & Ps Vita, I gotta say thank you to Sony, Superbot & Bluepoint for working so hard to get this game right. I can tell that different people will gravitate to & like different characters. The fact that everyone plays differently is awesome and the fact that everyone will be unlocked day 1 is also awesome. Though some of you may wish to unlock characters along the way forcing us to play with each character, but I believe that giving us choices is still smart.The reason is because its almost like giving a kid a whole candy store, or a Stoner 500 kinds of weed. We almost wont know where to start because it will be so exciting. I am having a brain screw just debating about evil cole, raiden & Dante, or Ratchet and clank..seee…Most likely most of us will go with who ever our favorite character was and move on from there..All I know is tht we must spread the word to as many people as possible to give this game a try and a chance…get to blogging people..

i had a chance to get into 2 or 3 matches, but i find the game really difficult. Its a combination of other players being really good and me sucking at this. I hope this game has alot of single player content like Smash Bros Brawl, otherwise i think i’ll just skip on this game.

It’s not appearing in the PS Store for me on PS3 or Vita? Is it because I’m in the UK or something?

Gmafz7 said:

October 17th, 10:32 am

Customes!!!??, WTH, that’s just eye candy!! Offer something more substantial for preorder come on!!

SWEET TOOTHS x3 FTW xD(i’ve been killing it with him)

O94kiwi said:

October 17th, 1:11 pm

what the hell, I have a UK account on my ps vita and the goddamn beta says I need playstation plus, when its supposed to be free

Fern4nd0JED1 said:

October 17th, 5:00 pm

Very good…

trapyahweh said:

October 17th, 6:54 pm

Maybe its just me but I feel that Kratos is a bit unbalanced

Hodgewald said:

October 17th, 11:42 pm

Kratos definitely felt unbalanced to me as well. I have really high hopes for this game and have it preordered, but so far im honestly a little disappointed. Maybe its just the style that the only way you can kill someone is with a super. Something about it just doesnt feel near as crisp and competitive as SSB.

Oto57 said:

October 18th, 6:24 am

If anyone care my opinion… You should chance the menu and the character selec stage, nothing else. But i love the gameplay!
I have a question: If i buy this in the store do i have for vita too? There is another gift?

Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Is Going To Be Better On PS Vita Then On PS3

Lord-Coolstyles said:

October 18th, 5:03 pm

It’s been pretty fun so far, I just don’t like having to turn on my Vita’s mic in order to play the game online. It would’ve been nice to include a single player mode that isn’t practice for those of us who don’t like playing online. I’ll definitely pick up a copy for my Vita if Kat ends up being DLC. Good job on the game!

kurjatnjik said:

October 18th, 7:11 pm

Is this beta out just for the US…cause i cant find it anywhere in EU store…not for ps3,not for ps vita…and the store is still the same old one…with the old design!!! :/ dissapointed………

Neosz369 said:

October 19th, 11:10 am

Wait, what online tournament?

TBV121 said:

October 19th, 4:57 pm

I don’t know why mine does not work. It gives the following error code:
Failed to connect all clients
Error Code: 0x8cb95ae402f20102

Anyone else having this problem? My other online games work fine!

YouthCat said:

October 19th, 10:39 pm

Not saying it needs stock, exactly, but I’d like to know when I’m about to die and how many times I can die. Other than that, I’m quite satisfied with this beta.

KoolBlueWingST7 said:

October 21st, 6:59 am

Play the all game, its good start but I was wondering if you guys can add Afro Samurai to the mix)

Saul_Aguilar_Jap said:

October 21st, 12:13 pm

This game is going to suck. I would rather play Super Mario Bros 3 on the NES then play All Stars Battle Royale garbage.

Wolvensoul9147 said:

October 23rd, 9:06 am

I cant download the beta, says its a playstation plus exclusive still.

steve08080514 said:

October 23rd, 9:37 am

@337 You’re reply loses its intended meaning when you use the word then instead of than.

I’m loving this beta. It’s a lot of fun. I can’t wait for the final game. I put in my pre-order after my first day playing the beta.

One thing I did notice is that it tries to connect you again, Sometimes when it connects you again, it changes your character. I only have connection issues 10% of the time.

One other thing I notice is that there are a lot of connection errors when a match goes overtime.

raidenraccoon said:

October 23rd, 10:05 am

I’m experiencing the same thing as #338. Would be nice if they’d let us know why it’s not available to non-Plus members yet when they said it would…

Freakyflashlite said:

October 23rd, 12:39 pm

B-Don-Swanson said:

October 23rd, 2:23 pm

October 23rd, 2:40 pm

@ Cristian Cardona
Um I don’t mean to bother you but today’s October 23rd which is the day you guys said the beta would expand to the public. It shows the beta on new releases but its still only accessible if you have PlayStation Plus. I was just hoping you could fix that ASAP. Thanks for your time! :)

Freakyflashlite said:

October 23rd, 2:41 pm

Daredevil6001 said:

October 23rd, 2:49 pm

B-Don-Swanson said:

October 23rd, 3:07 pm

Maximum_Ride_XII said:

October 23rd, 3:11 pm

Maximum_Ride_XII said:

B-Don-Swanson said:
