Apparently this OP was too negative, despite all the disclaimers I've already provided, so in aims of being even more objective, here is a table of similarities and differences:
I hope this will quiet Runa once and for all.
We have all been eagerly waiting for the big announcement by Sony, a brawler much like Nintendo's, something similar and just as fun.
Well boys and girls, it's finally arrived.
What I expected:
What most of us expected was a brawler like smash, but with its own signature (other than the skin), something that makes it its own. Taking a bit from smash, a bit from other fighters, the game would be really a make of its own.
What we got:
Litterally, it's Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with Sony Characters. Almost everything is identical except the theme (see video below). In essence, it's a shameless rip-off (not an insult at Sony).

What I ask is are there other like-minded individuals, Super Smash bros. fans who would love to get their hands on a game like this, but who are just feeling a bad stomach because they feel like Nintendo is getting ripped off?
