Sony Smash Brothers: Make it Happen

They often say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and it's never been more evident than the current-gen era. Countless console shooters continue to follow the Halo model while dozens of MMO developers compete to create the next World of Warcraft, often times with sub-par results. Sometimes though, the stars will align and a title will improve on its predecessor. Gears of War took the Kill/Switch aiming system and ran with it while Splinter Cell managed to recreate the intense stealth action found in the Metal Gear Series. In saying this, there is one title in particular staring Sony right in the face that could mean an immediate pay-day: Super Smash Brothers.

It's no secret, Sony followers would bend over backwards for a title that pays fan service to their favorite PS characters. Sony, who has been a main player in the home console world for the past fourteen years, has had their share of memorable characters appear on all three of their respective systems. If done correctly, a quality fighting title featuring all of the Playstation's most memorable characters, from Kratos to Parappa, would undoubtedly be an immediate hit. Granted, many of the characters who gained notoriety on the Playstation platform are now owned by others companies and have since gone multiplatform, so it narrows down the list quite a bit. In the meantime, here is ReelGamers' choice for the Sony Smash Brothers roster:

1. Kratos (God of War)
2. Sly (Sly Cooper Series)
3. Monkey (Ape Escape)
4. Ico (Ico)
5. Rico (Killzone)

(Roster continued after the jump...)

Lame, but it goes hand and foot with sony's new direction for their WWS.

Copy the competition to the T. Let's make queer motion controllers, copy franchise ideas and appeal to a fickle casual crowd who buys 1 or 2 games a year.

That's a hell of a good future you got on your hands Sony!

360 doesn't have MGS4 silogon.
That is all.

Johnny Cullen3873d ago

It just ain't gonna happen, it the Sony fanboy's ultimate dream. Mind you, if you had have asked me 5 years ago this idea, I would have said go for it xD

kosha3873d ago

I dont understand how they could make a fight with big beefy kratos and a monkey off ape escape fair. That monkey would get absolutely slaughtered.

beavis4play3873d ago (Edited 3873d ago )

just the idea of kratos fighting the monkey sounds kick @ss to me. and i don't know why?

how about a tag team match of JaD vs. RaC? awesome!
and where is capt. quark on the list?

match capt. quark vs sweettooth! coooooooool. man they gotta make this game. i'd pre-order today!

kosha3873d ago (Edited 3873d ago )

Ye i think it sounds great i just find the idea of kratos having a fight with a cartoon monkey funny.

jadenkorri3873d ago

had characters from other consoles, i don't see why sony couldn't do the same, BTW, what about Mega Man, and Zero. i didn't see them on the list

Isn't Legend of Dragoon a Sony property? They have some cool Fire Emblem type "clones" that could add to the game.

Also, if Level 5 and NIS properties are technically Sony's, you could use so many characters from those games too. Rogue Galaxy, Dragon's Quest 8, Disgaea (1+2) and especially Makai Kingdom have tons of great characters for a SSB type game.

theKiller3873d ago (Edited 3873d ago )

1: ratchet and clank
2: jak and daxtor
3: some ps1 characters
