IGN Preview: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Is Real

IGN: Let's not beat around the bush: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has blatantly and unabashedly borrowed from Nintendo's ubiquitous brawler Super Smash Bros. in innumerable ways. But let's not sell it short, either. Even though All-Stars pays serious homage to what came before it, it still looks like a game that the PlayStation Faithful will absolutely eat-up in droves.

"Let's not beat around the bush: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale has blatantly and unabashedly borrowed from Nintendo's ubiquitous brawler Super Smash Bros. in innumerable ways."

"But let's not sell it short, either."

You just DID in the first sentence...

Not really, it's just stating a fact, not even really saying it's even that bad of a thing to do. They're just being realistic about it, it doesn't detract from the quality of the game.

The best way to argue in favor of the game is to acknowledge an issue that someone may have with it and then spend the rest of the discussion explaining why the game is awesome despite the flaw. IGN isn't selling it short at all.

They also say this:

"There's no reason to be coy about its inspiration -- Super Smash Bros. undeniably paved the way for it -- but no reason exists to dismiss it as a clone, either. After all, it's not very often that a clone gives its inspiration a serious run for its money. And from what I've seen and played of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, it seems ready to do just that."

Oh my.

I liked the name Title Fight better.

Name should've been longer.
Sony Playstation Super All Stars Ultimate Battle Royale Rumble

SPSASUBRR for short.

Hey, we all know by know that Sony probably got inspired by Nintendo and that's not a bad thing. SSB is one of the best games on Nintendo platforms and I hope Sony can keep this alive for years to come. Who knows... they could make a Sony Vs. Nintendo game for both consoles.

When you have so many iconic characters associated with a system it would be a waste not to make this. It’s the computer game equivalent of a guns show and Sony has some very big guns to flex.

I said they shoulda called it Ultimate Showdown! Hahaha. Maybe the next one will be Playstation All-Stars: Ultimate Showdown!
