    I saw a bulletin showing the characters of Nintendo, Microsoft, and Playstation. well everybody knows that Nintendo's character is Mario (Who I think is a very good choice) and for MIcrosoft is Mater chief from Halo (He's also very cool still I never played Halo) and for the point, supposedly Playstation character was Kratos from God of war so I thinked "Yo, this character beats up all of the others" till the guy said that Playstation have changed it to the Little big planet guy..... Playstation blow it right there lulz

    If I'd be in charge of Playstation I'd put Solid Snake as a main character. Other choices would be:

    - Kratos
    - Sackboy
    - Ratchet
    - Spyro
    - Jax

    I think this list is now better after the edit. :D But my ground still stand with Solid. :)

    Sony's had a good variety of mascots.

    PSX: Crash Bandicoot / Spyro the Dragon
    PS2: Jak & Daxter / Ratchet & Clank
    PS3: I think we can all agree on Sackboy or Nate Drake, thought Ratchet & Clank and possibly Jak & Daxter are still good too.

    God damn it, I knew I forgot someone! Thanks for the heads up about Nate!

    I guess in my world it would be a battle betwen Solid Snake and Nate Drake.

    Gee, it rhymes even! Coincidence? Can't be!

    Nate Draaaaaaake is solely exclusive though, whereas Snaaaaaaaaaake has been to other consoles. So Nate's my man.

    Half of these aren't even a sony brand, so they can't be the mascot for the system.

    I always saw the mascot as Ratchet, Jak, Daxter and Sly Cooper combined, but thats me.

    I thought it was called the PlayStation, originally.

    Snake should be PS mascot. He is the most proliferable character.

    Mario isn't Nintendo's only mascot. They've also got:
    -Link
    -Samus
    -Donkey Kong
    -Fox

    There's many others but those would probably be the main ones, with Mario, Link and Samus being their main main ones.

    Lara Croft was a Playstation mascot, back in the day. It's a shame how she's ended up really, unlike Mario.

    Nintendo transformed Mario into a cocky bastard. I hate him.

    Oh, it's a shame what Mario has become, too.

    I'm just glad they didn't... enhance him cosmetically.

    Samus is cool, and Link is okay considering he's been doing the same fucking adventure over and over for 10 fucking years. I mean, seriously, do something different.

    I would say that Sackboy would be Playstation's mascot, because when people think of PS3, they think of LBP (or at least Sony would hope so)

    I would but Ratchet & Clank or Nate Drake as second choices.

    Also, Master Chief isn't the only possible Microsoft mascot. I'd say Marcus Fenix is a good one, as well as the Fable guy.

    I think that Sack-Boy should be the mascot for Sony, mainly because I think of him as the most marketable character for the Playstation 3.

    I don't understand why everyone on this forum thinks that Nathan Drake should be the mascot. Drake's Fortune isn't the PS3s biggest game and Drake isn't really that recognizable of a character on the same level of....say..Kratos or Solid Snake. Speaking of Solid Snake, he's pretty recongnizable as a mascot, but he really can't become one, considering that the Metal Gear Solid games aren't published by Sony, as well as the fact that they appeared on other consoles than those made by Sony.

    Also, I miss Crash Bandicoot being Sony's (unofficial) mascot.......and Crash Bandicoot games being developed by Naughty Dog altogether.
