They say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Sony have spent much of this generation flattering Nintendo then, it seems, all with an increased flourish in the past couple of years. They have taken it upon themselves to let loose a variety of brave and innovative releases onto home console via digital distribution and have benefited by seeing the likes of Flowerand anything Pixeljunk (for example) reap significant rewards. They’ve brought one to one motion mapping via PlayStation Move and they have made Drake and Sackboy joint mascots of anything Sony in the way they’ve seen Nintendo manage Mario and Zelda. They’ve even deigned to give Sackboy his own kart racing game and now we have PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, a nod to Super Smash Bros. if ever there was.
