Jak, Daxter and Sony's inFamous Hero Tapped for PlayStation All-Stars Roster

At Comic-Con today, another two (three?) playable characters were revealed for the roster of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale—Cole McGrath, from inFamous, and Jak and Daxter from, well, Jak and Daxter.

Per the PlayStation Blog, Jak and Daxter fans will recognize weapons such as the Mass Inverter and Needle Lazer, in the official announcement video (above). "When the going gets tough, Jak has the ability to unleash the powers of both Dark and Light Jak to even the playing field, as seen in Jak II and Jak 3 respectively," they wrote. "Daxter even lends a hand in Jak's melee attacks."

As for McGrath, "players can command both his electrokinesis and cryokinesis, using these powers to assault opponents from a safe distance or propel himself towards the action." A trailer showcasing these talents is at left.

I love Smash Bros. Love it to death! I played this game at E3 and I must say, though it's very Smash Bros like, it still has its own thing going for it. It's a different fighting dynamic with the specials and power meter.

The game is fun. I like the characters they've included so far. It handles nicely. I don't see why people are raising a stink about it being a Smash clone. Who cares? So what if it is? None of the same characters are here (well, maybe Snake) and even though it has the same basic look and fighting style this game is it's own thing.

Is CoD the same game as Battlefield? Is Modnation racers the same game as Mario Kart? No, they find ways to distinguish themselves. Just let Sony put their spin on this genre and give it a chance. You might actually like it.
