BNR: After seeing the game during Sony’s E3 presentation, however, I can honestly say that the game is not a rip-off of Smash Bros.
Maybe not gameplay-wise, since you're using specials for KO's and not stage flinging, but: http://gotgame.com/2012/05/... http://gonintendo.com/?mode... But that doesn't make it a bad thing, I'm actually glad it's taking heavy inspiration from Smash Bros, that means that most likely I will enjoy it when I pick it up.
They could have titled the game "PlayStation Smash Bros.: We're taking their idea" for all I care, the game looks very fun to play and has Kratos, Nathan Drake, Cole, Sly, and a bunch of other awesome characters to play as I just want MediEvil's Sir Dan in this game so badly
"Playstation All-Stars: Battle Royale is not a rip-off of Smash Bros" uh really....? this author must know nothing about the game. sure it's not a complete rip-off but it is indeed a rip-off. From the character roster idea to the gameplay. that's not to say it's a bad thing though. I love super smash bros. and having played 10+ matches in PSALBR (seriously, change the effing name) already this game is fun but not as good as smash. Also the characters feel too floaty.
Kinda tells me something about how people will forever not let things go and see the good stuff in this game. Think about it. When people are sharing images from months ago where a Wii is in a game developers office (SHOCK!) and then they link to a Nintendo fan website because someone from Playstation said something that can be conceived as placing All-Stars in the genre of Smash (SHOCK, AGAIN!).. It seems like someone is kinda slow on the up-take. All-Stars is about to be launched so, again, these Smash people just need to give it a chance and buy it. It wont hurt. I promise. =D
Yes it is . Sony steals ideas fanboys turn away. When others do OMDS RIPPOFF
then forza is a rip off of gran turismo, your logic fails.
@crxss With that logic... Mortal Kombat is a rip off of street fighter And Smash Bros is a rip off of outfoxies 1)Nintendo did not invent the cross over idea... this existed in cartoons, movies and other mediums way before they came into videogames 2) The outfoxies, had a 4 player side scroll fighter, in which players could pick up weapons and use them against others... this idea of picking up weapons was also used in games like Mortal Kombat 4 3)Games like tekken and soul caliber had the ring out method of defeating an opponent before the first smash Therefore, using that logic of yours Smash is a ripoff of all the games listed But in reality it is not... Smash is a different game, and all stars is a different game All fighting games look the same, but when you sit down and play the thing, you realize that these games do not play the same People are using the ripoff card cuz of looks, not gameplay
sony is definitely not the first to try and mimic smash brothers gameplay style but all of a sudden since sony is doing its a bad thing jump ultimate stars http://www.youtube.com/watc... D.O.N. battle stadium http://www.youtube.com/watc... one piece gigantic battle http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Does it really matter?long as the game is fun why should anyone care...
I think we're all well aware of who cares and who doesn't. And which particular banners they sit under.
Yep, and I don't really think the nintendo fans are the ones who are angry here on N4G as well. It's just the same Xbox loyalists here who bash and troll anything Sony. Claiming "ripoff" when MS has done a fair share as well. You'll see them soon below if I'm correct. Edit: @ Chunky Kinect: "Oh, what innovation..this has never been done before" (PS Eye Toy) PS Move: "Nothing but a Wii ripoff" MS announces Adventurer: "Wow, this looks great. Reminds me of Indiana Jones. So innovative." PS announces Uncharted series: "OMG, Tomb Raider/Indiana Jone rip off. It won't sell. It won't sell."
I think the people that care are the ones that have seen PS3 fanboys accuse everyone of ripping off Sony, but when Sony blatantly steals ideas and other things, people look the other way.
Who's these people ripping off Sony?
But there is no doubt that it is extremely inspired and heavily borrowed from.
Good, I like tears in my cereal.
Can people like you stop stating the obvious. Every knows this by now
And yet we still need these articles to keep reminding us right?
@maniacmayhem prove it, and I want to hear who your statement applies to the gameplay as well, not just the camera angles and stage design.
What do I have to prove? The similarities are obvious and in your face. A couple of tweaks to the fighting doesn't make this a completly different game from Smash Bros. You prove it.
Not 100% but it started with SSB.
Ssb did pretty much start the 2d brawler genre....but it doesn't mean they own it
In this situation Sony is no better than a chinese bootlegging company, taking other peoples hard works of innovation and ideology and basterdizing it for a profit. They could have done anything with their "ALL STARS" (dead ips sony has washed up and disgarded throught the years), but to make an entire game completely ripping off a AAA title of the corporation they are enemies with is just ridiculously lame. There is literally no honor in theft. Sony would never even acknowledge super smash bros brawl, let alone explain that their engine and gameplay is literally the same thing exept for a few incredibly minor tweaks to seem like "they didn't steal Nintendos idea". Either way Not cool sony. Edit: LOL at the disagrees...the video does not lie kiddies, you can at least have some courtesy and watch it instead of disagreeing with facts. If Sony had just said "Yes we are paying homage to one of the greatest brawler of all time" and not try this we are not a clone BS.
Also LBP Karting??? WTF Sony...while your at it why not release a controller that looks like the WiiMote...oh yeah.
Looks like someone has a serious hardon for anything Sony related! For real please anyone responding, show me something in the world today that hasn't drawn some type of inspiration from something else! All ideas has some bearing on the ideas of someone else's idea whether past or present! It would be a pretty sad world if no one made improvement on past ideas. I welcome this sub clone or whatever others may call it, because to me it represents progress.
Im sorry but what was your video supposed to prove? That they look similar? If so whats your point? Soul caliber and Tekken are both 3D fighters that look similar yet they play differently. Blazeblue, street fighter and a whole bunch of other 2D fighters look similar yet play differently also so why is it impossible for you to grasp that while psabr looks similar to smash it plays differently? AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! Out of all the karting games that have come out over the years its lbpk you crybabies get butthurt about? lol, when mariokart has a editing and creating system as robust as lbpk than we can talk about who is copying who.
. I don't think your blatant fanboyism could get any more blatant here. Did you just have a gush and decide you couldn't take any more? "the corporation they are enemies with" Now THAT is lame. Enemies... *sigh*. If you think businesses are enemies then you are more of a kid than you claim the people disagreeing with you to be. They are business rivals. "Enemies" suggests hate. From the outset, Sony and Superbot have admitted their influences for this game. I don't think it matters so much if it's a great game, which it's looking very strongly to be. Either way, you know what I think? I think it's remarkably selfish for you to not want Sony to make something that their fans clearly want and have been asking for for years. Who cares if it looks and plays like Smash Bros (even though it's been proven by sources to have added depth in defensive moves and takes a completely different strategy to win - yes it's true look it up, or continue to be a raging ignorant fanboy, it's your choice) when it's a great, and most importantly, fun game? If you were a gamer, you would have wanted to see legacy and modern PlayStation characters in a similar game to Smash. And if you'd have had a PlayStation 3 you might have had a chance to play LBP Karting beta already. If not, you will never know, because chances are that you will never play it. How many other kart racers are there? Not all that many, so when Sony comes along with a game that invigorates the genre more than any Mario Kart game has for years, you decide to call it a rip off too. Great, let's ignore all the amazing potential for innovation this game has with the endless community creativity, why don't we??? /s You really are such a fool Patiots_Pride, because you don't think about the bigger picture. And the WiiMote one... well, anyone who's done their research knows that Sony have been working on their motion tech since around 2000 - That's before the Wii was even announced. Nintendo had the confidence in their product, and Sony waited on it. See dude, that is why people are disagreeing with you. Because you are a rabid illogical fanboy.
I honestly wish they would have copied more from SSB. I'm not liking the direction this game is headed.
It really isn't. It's completely different. It's definitely worse but it is different.
Hmm I wonder why someone with "Smashbro" in their name would say that? \s Next he'll say LBP Karting is a copy of Mario Kart.
One guy got the joke.
so you have the game...interesting/
Wow since you have the game would you mind posting a review on youtube? Also could you send me a list of the characters in the game? XperiaRay
I think it's inspired from SSB
How can people be so stupid? Who cares? Who cares? Who cares? Did anyone care that everyone followed Sony's Singstar to the modern music games. Did anyone care about all the fighting games that followed Street Fighter. Or all the games that followed GTA or Battle Arena Toshiden? Did that stop anyone from enjoying those games. No. And to all the people who keep trying to give their opinion on a game that they didn't play, I already heard the opinion of people who actually played it and they said they had a blast playing it. No one gives a $hit how much it resembles SSB except the idiots on these game sites. just stop talking out of your @$$es. You haven't played the game and you don't know what you are talking about. Your opinion means nothing in the face of people who have actually played the game and I would rather listen to them then what you THINK will happen. @ Patriots_Pride . You mean like the AR card for the 3DS and extra joystick. I suppose that isn't blatently ripping off anything. Nothing but a blasted hypocrite, blind as any fanboy. @ SecretPsycho . No they didn't. It existed long before they did it.
You can say what ever you want....we all know its using Smash Bro's as a base to make this game
The only thing that Battle Royale is "Ripping" is that it's a 4-player platform fighting game with 1st party and 3rd party characters. Everything else is all theirs. They have their own distinct fighting system, health system, and stages. C'mon guys let these Devs have their time to shine giving the players what we've been wanting for years!
SSB pretty muh invented the platform fighting genre. What matters is that new inspired games try new ways to represent the genre. If this was never the case, we wouldn't have never moved away from Doom and would've called everything else a ripoff even today.
Similar in concept, much different in execution. Not sure what the big deal is anyway. Everyone copies everyone in pretty much every industry until it's watered down.
Generic FPS clone 3946394 comes out and nobody gives a shit. Sony decides to make a brawler with Playstation characters and all we hear is "Omfg ripoff!!". Please, this day in age nothing is completely unique. I'm going to get PSASBR AND the next Smash Bros because they are both fun!
so what if its a rip-off. it at least gives me an excuse to play as parappa.
Yes, yes it is, but it's looking like it will be a very good rip-off, and as long as it's still a good game, that's all that matters.
