Update: Microsoft vs. Sony – The Dream Roster

After putting together lists of suggested characters from not only our comments here but also on N4g, Reddit, VGN24, and some others I believe we finally have our dream roster for a Microsoft vs. Sony fighting game. A lot of people questioned my Xbox list saying that I had put too many multiplatform characters instead of exclusives. I do agree that I missed a ton of people but I do feel justified in placing names like Darth Malak, Ryu Hayabusa, Joanna Dark, Big Daddy, and even Frank West on there. The games those characters featured in were heavily played on the Xbox 1 and 360 and somewhat became known on those systems. Sure, Ninja Gaiden and Bioshock became multiplatform but they excelled on the Xbox.

Anywho! We now have 15 characters for each side that are exclusive to each company’s console(s). Once again, let’s begin to Microsoft.
