Sony has too many great exclusives to reduce to just one, such as Ellie from The Last of Us 2 which is coming out in 2019.

Excellent thread. Good job at displaying how many memorable characters Sony has created in their exclusives!

Oh I see...

The OP is confused because if how many different characters Sony has at their disposal that he doesn't know which is the definitive mascot.

They don't have a definitive mascot as there are too many to choose. Pick your personal favorite and move on.

I was going to say MS has master chief. But then I remembered all of Halo is on PC now, and mod support will soon turn him into Macho-Man Randy Savage, thus giving him a more robust personality by default.

Ratchet and clank

Also master chief is still first party microsoft, doesnt matter if it's on pc

That's like saying Mario isnt 1st party because Mario exists on android and IOS

Forza is great but it can't be a mascot. I'd vote for Marcus Fenix as Microsoft's mascot, as I love his kick-ass attitude.

As for Sony's mascot, you forgot Kazuma Kiryu!

PlayStation's Mario is Kratos, no dispute. He has the most games & most appearances outside of God of Wars games rom Mortal Kombat, Shovel Knight, HotShots, Soulcalibur & Tearaway. Kratos has games on all PlayStation systems except PS1 & PSVita. When PlayStation 5 shows up Kratos will be there too.

MS my childhood god lol, sorry but I was an adult before MS joined the console scene, nice try with the insults though, but I guess having an adult debate is too hard for kids such as yourself. Oh yeah it doesn't matter what you say because you know you will be wrong, unless you want to use Spider-Man LMFAO.

Microsoft has kicked out Master Chief and Replaced him with Forza Car. I guess that is a thing. Sony Mascot should be Kratos. As for Nintendo it has always been Mario time. But Kratos and Mario might also be replaced by Forza Car.

How come most Cow threads are weak attempts to make Xbox look stupid, and stupidly hidden inside lame post that make PlayStation fans vomit.

Yeah they get a laugh that someone pretends Master Chief and Blinx doesn't exist, but whats left, just vomit.

Clever thread ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am enjoying this. I guess there are a lot of Sony characters but their studios tend to move on. For example, I don't think Nathan Drake is gonna appear in another game, but he could easily be associated with Playstation. Out of all of them, Kratos is probably the best.

I ain't saying Spider-Man is the face of Sony, but Sony now has full ownership of any Spider-Man games now only because Activision didn't renew the rights and not to mention, the upcoming "Spider-Man: Far from Home" is being published by Sony & not MCU.

To clarify, Sony only have exclusive rights for making Spider-Man solo games but not for other materials in the making such as Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 cause he's with other Marvel characters.

Can you provide me with a link or copy of any signed deal for solo games rights beyond the game from last year, please?

From my understanding Activision didn't renew the rights and unlike with Star Wars, Disney has not signed any long term rights holdings for Spiderman with anyone which is why the character is in MUA3 on the Switch.

If legal rights worked that way Disney/Marvel could have used Spiderman in Avengers films "cause he's with other Marvel characters". They couldn't because Sony Pictures owns film rights. HOLDING rights is like leasing a car. You don't own it forever but under contract you do. Sony doesn't for Spiderman game rights as far as Ive read.

Sony used to own the rights to consumer products and merchandise based on Spider-Man up until 2011, when a deal was struck where Marvel purchased those rights back from Sony in exchange for giving Sony full ownership over the Spider-Man movie rights.

Either way, Spider-Man is still popularly perceived as a Sony franchise, even if it's only the movie rights they own. Because the movies are what Spider-Man is best known for these days, and the franchise's second biggest source of revenue (after merchandise).

For the record its as stupid to use "Forza Car" for MS mascot. Master Chief is Owned by MS, cars are not.

Not according to sheep or myself since I am looking at Spiderman right now in Marvel vs Capcom 3 on my X1X and will use him in MUA3 on Switch and he has no votes as yet in the poll which is in SW.

I never considered Batman WB character. Bugs Bunny, Road Runner are WB characters by perception. Batman is an 80 year old DC character by perception even if WB owns DC .

Which has absolutely no bearing on whether Sony legally holds rights to Spiderman in games which is what I was discussing. Popular opinion and ignorance of people's perception means Jack & Sh!t. Im discussing facts and asked for legal facts.
