Sony’s mascot brawler is bringing two new characters to the ring via free downloadable content! Gravity Rush’s Kat and Emmett Graves from Starhawk will be the first batch of what we hope to be a long list of characters added to the game. They’ll be ready for download early next year on the PlayStation Store and will be completely free for the first two weeks they are available.
“We’re very happy to announce these first two DLC characters will be free to everyone for the first two weeks once they are available for download early next year,” said Lead Game Designer Seth Killian. “…Let me be clear: once Kat and Emmett are finished, we’ll put them up for download. They’ll be totally free for two weeks. The only limit is that you have a two-week window to claim the characters. Once you have Kat and Emmett, they are yours forever.”

We all know Sony has been slow on the portable platform and even slower on how to work in it, now they may have finally found their legs. Their first run in portables with the PSP was a horrendous failure. It alone had potential due to the Sony badge slapped on the front, but it never clicked with most gamers.
Naughty Dog’s end of days survival adventure will be making a splash at this weeks New York Comic-Con.
