If we ae going back to Pre-playstation days with Jelly boy/smartball, then why not include in there Chuck Rock? ... But seriously, for this game to avoid looking to grin and drab, they need to go back to the Playstation 1 days and bring a couple of franchises, they are more interesting that "guy from Killzone" and "Flaming clown guy" (hope Parapa isnt the only one) they DO need to try to get Crash, spyro and Lara Croft in there, those guys represented the Playstation brand back then (I know they are 3rd party, but are Sony guys forever in my mind, and the rights for Crash might be cheap right now). Also, if they start going for 3rd parties, this migth become interesting as im pretty sure that if some character, like lets say Snake apears in this he might be banned from apering in the next Smash so this could turn into a race to se who grabs the best 3rd parties for theis Brawl. In my opinion, for Sony:
Crash Spyro Lara Croft Solid Snake
(those mean playstation to me, even if 3rd parties)
Yeah! that crossover between Konami, Hudson and Bandai (I dont remember the name) but that wasn´t console exclusive, it came for both the Gamecube and the PS2. I remember Medievil being quite mentioned on the playstation era, and it got a remade por fot PSP, so they still remember the franchise.

Man, I didn't even know there WAS a Medievil 2. Mind friggen' blown.
There's no doubt Snake will pop up in this one. If it's up to Kojima anyway, dude loves the crossovers. I'd say Gabriel Belmont from Lords of Shadow has a pretty decent chance of popping up too.
They're probably focusing on the latest and relevant franchises for the Playstation. So as much as I'd love old school shit like Tomba appearing I have a feeling Parappa the Rapper is about the only ''old school'' character making a playable appearance here.
