RUMOR! Sony's Title Fight

Apparently, this was more then a tease for the new ad campaign.

This was, apparently a tease for an ENTIRE GAME.

 Yes, Ladies and gentleman, if the rumors are true then Sony is making a Smash Brother's style fighting game that is tentatively called Title Fight. 

You can read the rumors here: Title Fight.  The page notes that the "Michael" ad was a tease for the game.  Here is IGN's Rewind theater that notes the games in the ad.
(I like Rewind Theater's and they can point out more things then I can)

So, IF the rumors are true (and I have no vids to speculate on gameplay)  Who do you want to be in it?

Final Fantasy HAS to be represented as it is considered a "Sony" type game recently (All the main titles from 7-12 not including 11 were PlayStation exclusives.  1,2,4,5, and 6 were rereleased on the Playstation and with Dissidia all main games have had characters released on a Sony system)  But which hero?  I think it would boil down to between Cloud and Lightning.  Cloud is iconic and SE has been promoting Lightning lately. Lightning would have more variety (Switching between Commander (Physical), Ravager (Black Magic) and Medic (White Magic) in Dissidia for example)  and she has Odin, but Cloud is a normal swordsman and is probably more popular and iconic. Lightning is a bit more over promoted but still a viable choice.

Sly Cooper is in there,so why not Cole from InFamous?  He's a really good option for fighting games.  He's going to be in Street Fighter X Tekken!
No, really, he's going to be in Street Fighter X Tekken.
So, first player, fighter, he's looking like a good choice, if Sly wasn't already in the game.

Ezio isn't an exclusive character, but he was in the trailer, has a good fighting set up, and is going to be in Soul Calibur V, so he's also a viable option.

Subject Delta from Bioshock 2.  Again, not completely exclusive but would be a VERY powerful "Tank" option.  Between the plasmids, guns, and iconic drill he could do quite a lot in a fight.  Plasmids would probably drift to the more offensive ones. (INCINERATE! Electrobolt, Winterblast, telekinesis, etc)  the downside is he can't really talk... but it would still be cool.  (While Delta does not appear in the trailer, the Little Sisters do)

Snake from Metal Gear Solid.  Much like FF, MGS is a third party series tied to the Sony brand.Snake has a large role in the trailer and has already appeared in a fighting game.  Unfortunately, that game is Super Smash Brother's Brawl.  While it CAN be done, (he's very good in Brawl)  I'm not sure of the legalities.

Ratchet and Clank from... Ratchet and Clank.  Playstation Exclusive characters, would compliment Sly Cooper well, lots of gadgets to play with... would be a very fun choice! (Plus Ratchet was in the trailer)

Ico or Wander from Ico/Shadow of the Colossus.   I honestly don't know too much about these two, so I can't say much.

Dante from Devil May Cray.  So, yeah, talking about White Haired Dante here.  Lots of variety, devil may care attitude, would be a good way to mix up play.  He was JUST in (Ultimate) Marvel vs Capcom 3 so I don't know if there would be legal issues, but there might be. (Character is exclusive, company isn't)

Ryu from Street Fighter.  I don't think I have to explain why. 

That's all I can think of right now, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to shoot down Chell.  I ADORE her, but she doesn't have much fighting potential and Valve is considered more of a PC company then a console company.  Plus, until recently, Gabe Newell hated the Playstation for some reason. 

And while the three heroes from Trine would be another good option, it's a downlodable multi platform game.  it doesn't feel quite right.  Would be fun to switch between all of them though!

Who do you think should be in it? And why?
