Premium-Inhalt. It isn't unusual to see characters and secrets leak ahead of a game's release, but what we've seen leak from PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has been exceptional. It's almost to the point where we know more from the leaks than we do from official announcements, and that's why we're going to break down what we know and what it means for the game as we approach release. The leaks are coming from users who have access to the closed beta and have dissected the files contained within it. It should be noted that all players participating in the beta are ostensibly under NDA, so they aren't allowed to speak of anything that's actually in the beta, but (luckily for us) that hasn't stopped them from finding every tidbit of information contained within the code.According to the leak, we have some really interesting new characters added into the mix. Here's the entire list, so far:

Premium-Inhalt. Give him enough time, and Peter Tamte will tell you exactly what's wrong with note-taking apps for the iPad: They're walled off from other apps, making it hard to turn your notes into tasks and to-dos. They're overly reliant on cloud storage and syncing, so if you're offline, your data is often inaccessible. Many of these apps just seem to replace paper clutter with digital clutter, preventing Tamte and users like him from putting notes to any real use.
