An hour ago, Paul Gale Network reported here that you’d soon have four more character reveals made official thanks to Gamescom and provided a hint in saying that of the four that will be shown, you know of two already…which can be seen as knowing two of the five.

Those “two” that serve as one character slot on the roster are the team of Ratchet & Clank, which I revealed in this article on July 29th.

The other three characters that most of you already figured out by my hints in the past are:
Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet
Dante from Devil May Cry
Spike from Ape Escape

Additionally, if you purchase the PlayStation 3 version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, you will get the game on PS Vita, for free. This is part of Sony’s new “Cross Buy” program, in which “Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time” and “Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault” are also a part of. Stay tuned for more updates throughout Gamescom on this title and in the coming weeks.

  1. Hey Paul since Dante was officially revealed today, can you shed some light on one of your hints? The hint was a 3rd party hero that has a strong affiliation with the Playstation brand. Was that hint for Dante? Just curious to know if it was. Thanks

  2. 1) do you get the physical copy for free or do you have to download it?

    2) which hints where answered by the new reveals like to see what the answers to some where

  3. hey Mr. Gale. i’ve been reading your all stars info since you started but this is my first question. with the cross buy, can i buy the ps3 copy retail and still get the game for my vita free?

  4. I am happy to see some of my favorite characters in action, especially Dante. However, it is disappointing how so many are negatively reacting to Dante in his DMC appearance in this game. This game represent characters from Playstation’s past, present and future; so why is that so many gamers are not understanding the “future” part of it? (sigh) It’s just silly; making a big deal about aesthetics of a character… Anyways I am rambling. I look forward to more of your hint’s Paul. Though they may go over my head, it’ll be fun trying to wrap that head of mine around them. 🙂

    1. Left out that I think its funny that all characters announced I’ve been waiting for. An new Dante makes more sense then old and he’s going to be my 1 on 1 character. 🙂

  5. Hey paul it’s paranoid player here (I have the best ps all stars score on YouTube 28 points) Anywase I was wondering if I could expect more characters to come to the BETA I’m itching to try more.

  6. Hey Paul, I AM SO HAPPY SACKBOY IS IN! HE LOOKS LIKE A BLAST TO PLAY! quick question: Does Sackboy have a move where he can copy another characters costume and use 1 of their moves other than his level 1 super or is it just for the level 1?
