The lights are on
All of the DLC characters for Sony's mash up fighter have been released, but that doesn't mean the company is done supporting the game. PlayStation All-Stars will see more patches, costumes, and leaderboard fixes in the coming months.
In a blog post on Sony's PlayStation Blog, the company explained that SuperBot Entertainment has finished releasing DLC characters for PlayStation All-Stars. However, fans of the fighter can still look forward to a balance patch – which is still in the early stages of research and development – that should go live later this fall. A third set of costumes for Dante, Raiden, Heihachi, and Big Daddy, which were originally pre-order bonuses, will also become to everyone else on August 27. Zeus and Isaac's third costumes will become free as well, but probably won't hit until later this fall. Sony is also looking into the monthly tournament leaderboard reset problem, and will fix this bug as soon as it can.
Our TakePlayStation All-Stars came out in November of last year and got a handful of good downloadable content. It was especially cool to see characters like Issac Clark and Zeus make it into the game, and while it's a shame that Abe from Oddworld never got a chance to join the cast, I'm not surprised to see that Sony has stopped the character rollout. I'm also happy to see that the game will be getting a little more support and that Sony is still working to balance and fix bugs this late in the game. Not many games get this level of support.

I wish the game would have gotten more Metal Gear Solid characters, like Solidus or Big Boss(Peace Walker). But, there is always a sequel to look forward to.
good job sony
I got excited until it said no more characters. Then it got boring. Buts support is still support I suppose...
Give me Dart from Legend of Dragoon, you bastards!!!
No more characters might as well mean that they are done. There arent and infinite number of glitches in any game, unless you follow a technical philosphy of coding, in which case every game is a glitch itself, and any game with 20 something characters and 200 costumes gets boring really fast unless moves are changed, and even then those characters will be privileged only to those who actually PURCHASE THEM (i.e our economy is ***, not everyone has money like that) this game is dying very slowly, and its sad because its actually pretty well made. Unless All Stars 2 is in the future, we better get more characters.
Too bad no more characters nor stages, the journey/gravity rush stage looked pretty neat, and more characters could have joined the roster, but i am happy they still patching it, in its actual stage Kratos it´s more overpowered than ever(well actualy he didn´t change but all the other ones got balanced).
"Not many games get this level of support."
Agreed, and it's saddening. I imagine a lot of my favorite MP and even some SP games (Dark Void, I'm looking at you) could have benefitted from some longer term support. But it seems only console makers and a few studios like Valve and Insomniac are willing to put in the long term investment.
Also, any game that lets me brutalize Nathan Drake with weapons from Dead Space and Killzone is worth supporting.
