PlayStation All-Stars Island heading to Android, iOS and sponsored by Coke Zero

Thursday, 8 August 2013 17:34 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony may have stopped supporting new DLC for cross-platform brawler PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but that doesn’t mean the title is dead in the water. In fact, it appears to be getting it’s own island on mobile devices.

According to an announcement (thanks, LegendaryBoss), PlayStation All-Stars Island takes place on an island (obviously) where smaller games experiences can be participated in. Players will be met with different themes from various PlayStation franchises such as Uncharted, inFAMOUS and more.

Players will also earn “special Coke Zero moves within the game that make the impossible possible.”

The four main characters are Sackboy, Nathan Drake, Cole MacGrath and Gravity Rush’s Kat along with bonus characters Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank.

The island was “created to host the best and most exciting characters from PlayStation games,” and has been divided into four zones, with each zone representing one franchise complete with mini games.

Players are tasked with collecting Coke Zero orbs that are used to unlock special Coke Zero moves.

The game is out now on Android and iOS through iTunes and Google Play for free and via a QR code on the label of participating Coca-Cola Zero bottles.

    “I know PS All Stars was a bit of a flop, but doing this just cheapens the brand.”

    …and being such a big supporter and Sony fan, that just crushes your will to live? Man, give it up will you? Take your alts and go home.

    I hope the site redesign gets here soon and lets the staff take of these types of trolls. Things have been getting bad. Being a fan of something doesn’t hurt anything, but posting to instigate with zero purpose but to troll is a plague around here.

    Thats just freaking lame I swear….

    @9
    Why quoting something like that ? You guys enforcing new members to dislike Francis O already when they dont even know him. Perhaps people have to figure it out for themselves how certain individuals are?

    You guys are the lame elite that are giving bad impressions beforehand.

    Its his opinion and I happen to agree. Perhaps in certain articles he trolls (not in my opinion) but in this case I agree.

    How old are you really. Aaw some younger people I dont know irl are annoying me on the interwebzzz…I say deal with it. Suck it up. Man up.

    I wouldn’t side with the troll: you can’t take him seriously when he openly trolls, is a clear Nintendo fanboy and argues/insults anyone who disagrees with him.

    Overall you can’t take someone like him seriously.

    The rest are right the sooner the new site design gets here the sooner Pest Control can take place.

    Francis suffers of miscommunication and yes all other posters are right to point at him as a troller.
    But I have faith that what Francis meant was pointing at the fact of association Coca Cola 0 with a Sony game and let alone the clever idea of cross-platforming which could only elevate Sony Android phone if done right.

    Calm down dude, putting this game on the iOS and Android cheapens the brand. No trolling going on right now.

    I have a PS3 and PS All Stars btw. Its fun, but how can anybody be happy with this over more support for PS All Stars on the PS3 and Vita?

    @12

    Exactly, I’ve asked a lot of people from this site to come on my show, discuss things to a big audience, you know transparency. But they all declined and insulted my efforts.

    Why should I be nice to people who aren’t nice to me?

    #17 2 years ago
  18. OlderGamer

    I don’t think it cheapens anything. I think it is a neat way to cross promote. It is a win for Coke, it is a win for Sony, and if it was done a bit better could be a win for gamers. But that isn’t the point of my post. I didn’t post because I don’t agree with francis.

    I posted because I am tired of the constant trolling. That is about all the community has broken down into. People trolling each other back and forth. Snide comments. Baiting. Sniping. Going to be a point where the only left are the trolls.

    DJ I am not part of the site. I am not staff. Just a long time poster that cleans up daily spam on the forums. I don’t have an agenda or a site wide plan. And most importantly my views do not represent the views of the site or the people that do run the place.

    @Francis
    Says the person who threw the first shots in insulting people on the Bayonetta 2 thread, what were those words “little bitches/whiners and chumps” niceness is a two way street: you insult people expect to be insulted back. You’re never nice Francis: that statement right there shows how much of a hypocrite you are.

    As for show, how would you feel if someone was annoyingly asking you to partake in this show when they nicely declined and kept being bugged about it every time you interact?

    @Legendarychump

    I only call you a chump because you’re special. And yes, there was a lot of salty whiners on the Bayonetta thread. Yes, there was a lot of bitching.

    I was met with insults on this site first, that’s why I started throwing insults back.

    @17 “Why should I be nice to people who aren’t nice to me?”

    Once again, the door swings both ways on that one. I’ve seen you enter topics and be inflammatory right off the bat – not as a response to anyone. You made goading remarks as the first posts in two articles in the last 24 hours alone.

    Though, regardless of that, you have made your bed and appear content to sleep in it.

    @Article – this does come off as rather cringe-worthy and classless. I guess promotional tie-ins with fast food type products are always likely to bear that stigma. I’m not sure it cheapens the brand in this case as there’s not much to cheapen.

    I haven’t mentioned the quality of the game yet, but all I can see is coca cola plastered all over it.

    Do you think this is a good idea?

    Collecting ‘coke zero orbs’…

    I haven’t tried the Pokedex but don’t remember it containing advertising? (The main beef people seem to have with this)

    One thing I do know, is the Pokedex was a cash cow similar to a free to play model and it sounded like a complete rip off.

    Also, stirring much?

    Legendarychump

    So you make up the rules on this site? I usually insult people who insult me. Saying somebody is bitching or whining is not an insult in my opinion.

    I call you a chump because you comment stock me, want to argue, then back down when I say lets discuss things on Skype.

    Chump…not only that but you have told me to STFU as well when I didn’t even address you at all.

    You’re a keyboard warrior.

    @Joe

    The door does swing both ways, I’ll insult people who have insulted me.

    Well dragon, I think it is a sign of the times. Nascar is one of the most popular sports in NA. The cars are rolling billboards. Soccer, football, all same type of thing. But sports aside I see it being a big deal going forward in games. I mean look at TV. I just downloaded a two month trial of HuluPlus(so I could watch season 16 of South Park), and found even it had adds.

    Look at XBL. PSN will prolly do the same down the road. It just makes sense. We live in various degrees of open market/capitalistic societies. Lets say a company sponers a downloadable app/game that you can play for free and then transfer exp/items/perks/whatever that you earned/unlocked in said app back to the full game on your PS4/X1? Where is the harm in that?

    I can see that being a real big deal down the road.

    I can’t comment on the quality of this coke/ps all stars thingie..I haven’t used it. But I can see where these type of things could go. Craft some in game food(brought to you buy McDonalds) on the go and then the crafted food shows up in Titan(or whatever Blizz calls their next MMO). It could work, if done right, is all I am saying.

    @28

    It really breaks the third wall for me…

    Product placement in a game like Heavy Rain would be about as far as I’d want it to go… I.e someone picks up a phone and you could see its a Sony Xperia or whatever.

    That would still suck, but huge adverts in between levels would suck even harder IMO.

    No, its a suggestion that should be heavily considered and if i did make the rules Pest Control would have happened much sooner.

    But you said (@20) it was because i was special and now its because i comment stock and decline (not back down) to skype. Backtrack, backtrack, backtrack into that pit.

    As for the STFU comment: you were annoying about shooters, you were annoying when insinuating games that aren’t shooters: are shooters: spamming every shooter board with generalizations. I stand by that comment.

    I can understand your POV MG. And it used to bother me too. But I think it is headed that way. Already is in someways. Have you played or seen the NFL and NCAA games? In my NFL team, when Tim Tebow wins MVP of the game you see him holding a gator aid bottle while being interviewed. The halftime “show” in NCAA is brought to by Nissin I think. I know Coke is also a sponser.

    I think it just needs to be done smart. Always some growing pains to be had along the way I bet. And depends on the game too. Doesn’t make sense for a mid evil knight to bear sporting Converse and a Aero Hoodie. lol.

    Camera cuts to Nathan Drake…

    Sweat pours down Nathan’s forehead as he tears through a Mayan temple and down the steps, gunfire exploding around him.

    6 henchmen bear down on him, shouting and firing off shots in an attempt to stop their adversary.

    Nathan spots a canyon ahead and a narrow rope bridge, it’s going to be dangerous be he must cross!

    Nathan shimmy’s his way across the canyon bridge and slices through the vines with his machete. The henchmen are trapped on the other side!

    Nathan wipes the sweat from his brow and smiles as he reaches into his rucksack.

    “I managed to escape, AND keep the treasure!” He says, grinning from ear to ear.

    Cut to Nathan pulling a can of ice cold Coke out of his ruck sack and taking a long drink from the can.

    @27 Unfortunately Francis, your scattershot aggressive generalisations result in you insulting people that didn’t insult you (always a bit of a risk when combining generalisations and insults). Perhaps you could make some scattershot heartfelt apologies to redress the balance.

    You also appear to have conveniently overlooked your first-post goading remarks that you made recently. Whose insults were you responding to there – when yours were the first comments made??

    - Nobody is backtacking, you’re just a keyoboard warrior with nothing better to do with their time. I’m allowed to give my opinion on shooters. I didn’t say anything to you directly, so you telling me to STFU is wrong. People give their opinion on Nintendo games all the time, I don’t see you telling them to STFU.

    @Joe

    - Like I said, I was insulted by certain users on this site first. Weather it be my site, or my taste for certain games, or distaste. Certain users came after me first. So I’m not going to sit back and take.

  41. Joe Musashi

    But when yours is the first comment in a topic, you can’t be responding to someone else can you? So why would you make an inflammatory, goading comment then? You’re clearly not replying to someone so the answers you’re giving me don’t apply to the instances I’m referring to.

    If your comment is insulting, yet it’s the first comment in a discussion, what is your reasoning for behaving in that manner?

  43. Joe Musashi

    But if your first comment is deliberately goading and inflammatory – in response to nothing at all (it’s the first comment) then you’re inviting that behaviour. Your comment is deliberately written in such a way to incite others.

    So, when you’ve nobody to respond to and when nobody has insulted you – why do you deliberately start a topic of conversation in an insulting and inflammatory manner? You did it twice – in two separate articles, earlier today.

    Nobody is there to respond to, so your reasoning about responding to others clearly doesn’t apply, does it?

    Do those people spam it on every Nintendo thread: using sucks all the time?
    Do those people insinuate Nintendo games are all FPSs?
    Do those people admit they are trolling just to get a response?
    Do those people drag a long argument because of disagreements?

    As for me responding to those opinions: i do not swear because most of the opinions aren’t the same thing over and over and over again. For STFU comment i know i addressed that at @31. Learn to read Francis, my dear boy read ;) :) :P :D

    @Joe

    No, it wasn’t. The DLC from COD isn’t worth it. I just gave my honest opinion.

    @Legendarychump

    Don’t talk about dragging on long arguments. You defended ZombiU and said it should have sold better from “playing it at a friends house” we all know that’s bullshit. The game is ass and you argued like hell it should have sold more.

    So you need to STFU and stop comment stocking me.

    @46 The topics I refer to were not COD articles. Both were related to Nintendo. Those were new articles, on Nintendo topics, where nobody had responded – so nobody had insulted you. You made the first comment in both. It was inflammatory and unconstructive.

    So, those example are still well outside of all the reasons you’ve given. So why did you make those inflammatory remarks?
