If I was him I would went

"Sure it's like Super Smash Bros...but the fans asked for that type of game with Sony characters, so where just giving them what they asked for"

...which is pretty much true, we have been asking for this type of game for years

StrongMan1992d ago

Exactly. The only people who see this as a bad thing are people who's console of choice don't have enough exclusive characters to make a game like this.

HammadTheBeast1992d ago

I wonder what you mean? The PC definitely has loads of exclusives to make a PC Smash Bros. Diablo guys vs. League of Legends guys... oh wait, am I missing something?

h311rais3r1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

@ Hammond

Magika characters, tribes characters, arma characters, Starcraft characters, warcraft characters, amnesia characters, samurai generals from shogun or any total war, killing floor characters, red orchestra characters, shattered horizon, terreria, Blacklight retribution, Mech warrior, Hawken, Dota 2, lineage etc

should I keep going? Pc has PLENTY of exclusive characters.

@hammadtheOne and Hellraiser(I hate when people substitute numbers for letters)

You guys are missing the point... the reason SSB and this game exists is because they are all published by one publisher, not because they are on the same system

If you wanted a PC brawler the most realistic you could get would be valve only characters.

Its not the system, its the publisher... unless they get permission from other companies which is unlikely on PC (Blizzard owned by Activision, etc)

@niblest
Yeah, I hate it when people do that too.....
*looks at own user name
oh....-.-; nevermind...^__^;

OT
Another point to make is that PC isn't really(if you want to be technical) 1 platform, but a kajillion...^_^;

miyamoto1991d ago

I hope this trend will compell Sega to revive their Fighter's Megamix from the Sega Saturn and bring new characters from Sonic series, Virtua Fighters, Yakuza, Phantasy Star, Jet Set Radio, Golden Axe, Shinobi series, Gunstar Guardian Heroes, Shen Mue, Platinum Games , Virtual On and of course Streets of Rage!
With special guest of course " Its me Mario!"

MaxXAttaxX1991d ago

There are some people that say they wish it was even more like Smash Bros. And others who say it's too much like Smash Bros.

HammadTheBeast1991d ago

Goddamnit, sarcasm doesn't get across the internet well. I was playing around saying that PC doesn't have exclusives, when we all know that the real culprit is the Xbox 360. Sorry if it didn't get across lol.

Completely agree with you

People have been asking for this game ever since the Micheal trailer... I mean there is so much potential for an awesome roster

I mean, there was no other way they could have made a game like this, with out making it look like Smash Bros.

I really hope they let people try the game out before release... Im going to Fanexpo this year in Canada and there is always a huge sony booth... last year was awesome with Uncharted 3, hopefullt all-stars makes an appearance there.

I have been a die hard fan of smash bros since the original, I I was so happy when this game was announced... sad other people do not share my enthusiasm

miyamoto1991d ago

And Sony will be bashed and accused forever for ripping off Nintendo. This game is proof that PSBlog works and Jeff Rubenstein does his job as community director and mediator betweenSony and PlayStion gamers. Now that is commitment to gamers.

To Michael!!!

garos821991d ago

Nimble assassin,I share your enthusiasm.I unashamedly hope its a direct rip off of Ssb as that game rocks and does the source material justice.

Gorilla_Killa_X1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

It's the same game pretty much except it's for Sony fans. SSB was great and I'm sure this will be just as good. But seriously how many fighting games are similar to other fighters out there. Most show very little differences between them.

jujubee881992d ago

It's just that cut and dry. I like the idea of having a living toy box on my VITA handheld. :-D

Ryo-Hazuki1992d ago

It's not like we see Smash Bros games every year anyways. It's okay to have a million of the same shooters every year but it's not okay if there's one similar game before it??? lol

Soldierone1992d ago

Who cares?! Are Nintendo fanboys afraid this might actually be better than theirs or something? There is no rule that states other companies can't have their own fighting games....

We all asked for SONY SMASH BROS, we got it, and we are excited for it. Sorry that you Nintendo people can't just let other people be gamers.....

Does no one remember the PS1/N64 days? When we had Mortal Kombat clones for literally everything.....

smashcrashbash1991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

Thank you. Very good point. There were a million Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat 'clones' and NO ONE made such a big deal about it. We played every single one of them without blinking an eye. Now gamers cry on and on about who is copying who and what games is a copy of what.I played Word Heroes an obvious clone of STF and still had a blast playing it.

Heck most 3D fighters are practically clones of Battle Arena Toshinden. But that's all we hear about from everyone and it makes it worse that SSB wasn't even an original concept but is rather in a genre of fighting game that existed before it was even conceived.Modern gamers harp on about the most stupid things.The Superbot people even confessed that they borrowed from SSB. What else do you want? Blood?

@ frankiebeans. It only sucks because you don't have the cheap way of playing like you have in SBB. . Standing at the edge of stage and constantly pushing someone off wasn't a strategy. It was a cheap way to win. You could win SSB just by mashing buttons. People did it all the time. PASBR is not SSB.At least in PASBR you have to fight and get your own power to win instead of the people that just wait until someone does all the work in SSB then knock them away.

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME1992d ago (Edited 1992d ago )

but if it's done right it isn't, modnation was a kart racer, but made some really cool new gameplay aspects that made it so that it wasn't just another copy

if nobody borrowed off of each others ideas then we wouldn't be progressing very much

like i said the trick is just not to copy a game and make a new setting or something like dante's inferno, seriously, that game didn't even try to hide it, you could use the same button combination, and expect dante to do a move that had the same effect as in god of war, but this game doesn't look like it's doing that, they've made it a priority to have something that makes this unique, if you listen to the interviews and stuff, the way you win a match is totally different from smash bros.

jujubee881991d ago

I love science and technology, and that is a discipline where scientists have always adhered to learning from and expanding upon the hypothesis and theories of scientists which came before them.

Just thought what you said was true. Kudos! :-D

ronin4life1991d ago (Edited 1991d ago )

But if all we do is borrow/we borrow to much, than horizons and ingenuity will shrink.

It is a balancing act. Progression and creative ingenuity are both needed. Continued advancement of what is and creation of what is not yet.

It is also very late....=.=
