    I can't get away from thinking that sackboy looks remarkably like the doll on the front cover of Korn's album 'Issues'...anyone else see that?

    Maybe the reason we don't have a PS mascot is because they are slightly childish and graphics out grew them. Mario and Sonic were born in a time when we were all much younger and wanted something to cling to. Also graphics back then didnt allow realistic representations of humans. The fact that the quality of practically all Mario games was near perfect also helped. Personally I doubt Sony will ever have a cute-ish mascot that appeals to all gamers with a string of top quality games to support it.

    Master Chief says hi. He's Microsoft's mascot. People always kept saying someone should be a mascot. Much as I love Sony, along with Microsoft and Nintendo, they have their head up their asses for listening to us.

    Can someone explain why Big Daddy and whoerver the current Assassin is, are always on a picture with PS mascots??? Big Daddy was even in PS All-Stars. I mean Bioshock was X360 exclusive when it first came out.

    Maybe it was a smart move that they didn't get a mascot, I don't have a problem with Sony going against Nintendo, or the Xbox going against Playstation, the more competition, the harder they will try to win us over and try new stuff in doing so. Let them fight. Somehow if mascots get involved. things get personal. And I wouldn't want to be the one up against Mario, that cannot be a fun place to be.

    I wish Knack was somehow a Sackboy platformer. I just find the design of Knack to be incredibly unlikeable. In his smallest form, he's boring and lacks any charm. When he's bigger, he just looks like a pile of junk, kind of like a Michael Bay transformer.

    If this was a perfect world, these guys would be more known, but sadly we don't. If only Sony would have taken risks with these characters.

    it would be cool if a tetrimino was the playstation mascot. maybe the one that kinda looks like an s. the s is for sony. Tengen (the console software division of Atari Games), regardless, applied for copyright

    If these were the mascots of PS, you would be writing about how stupid these mascots are.

    I protest!

    *Sigh* I miss Spyro. I know he has the whole *Skylanders* thing, but that's not Spyro in my opinion, that's some ugly purple lizard demon parading around as our beloved dragon. I miss the true Spyro games, yes even the revamped trilogy (which I actually liked for the most part).

    If Sony ever do come up with a mascot I just hope they don't become over-reliant on them like Nintendo have with Mario.

    crash needs reboot

    Well I mean, the Ratchet movie seems to show they're throwing their eggs into the dynamic duo being their go-to mascot. Insomniac backing the movie helps me feel confident in that statement (we saw how the other movies Sony has tried have turned out - all dead in the pipeline).

    I wish we had an edit button. My inner writer cringed at the two glaring errors in that post.

    Edit privileges to the rescue

    What about Polygon Man? He was awesome!

    Am I the only one who thought Kratos would've made sense on this list? Always a Sony exclusive, been around since PS2, will likely be on PS4, has always been the star of the games in the series he's from, heavily marketed by Sony....Of course he only works as a kind of symbol for Sony, because anything he says will be rage induced madness.

    I think you eliminated your point when you said "heavily marketed by Sony"
