E3 2012: PlayStation All Stars: Battle Royale to be joined by Bioshocks Big Daddy and Nathan Drake


There are many PlayStation characters to choose from throughout Sony's years in the PlayStation business, but things seem to have spilled over into the realm of third party as well. Besides spilling over onto the PS Vita ( revealed during Sony's E3 2012 Conference) as well, PS All Stars will also be adding Bioshock's Big Daddy. Of course, there's is Nathan Drake too, but we all know a Big Daddy is much better than a normal man no matter how charming and sly they are. Nathan Drake fans are welcome to send me hate mail to William[at]thexboxdomain[dot]com.
