Imagine a game like Smash Bros...

Would harm smash sales and probably Nintendo hardware sales. I'd love destroying Masterchief and Spiderman with Duck Hunt, don't get me wrong, but I just don't see it happening.

Serious question: How did Playstation AllStars Battle Royale turnout? Did they capture the Smash magic? Were there great characters, and how was the roster in general?

They tried too hard to be "not Smash Bros." and the mechanics suffered. There is no damage. Basic attacks only build up a special meter, and only these special attacks can kill opponents. It's not too bad in a 4 player brawl, but once you are down to 2 people it becomes very tedious.

This always confused me. They shamelessly copied motion controls from Nintendo, so why not shamelessly copy Smash Bros. instead of making this ridiculous gimmick? If they'd just made it "Smash Bros., except with Sony characters" then it probably would've done fairly well.

That's another thing, though, the roster just had a bunch of 3rd party characters. I guess Sony doesn't have enough confidence in their own IPs to push them. I think that'd be a lot more welcomed by Sony fans, personally, but ...



I am currently sigless.

Would be awesome but it is a pipe dream.

Even more boring characters that I don't even know? No thanks.

Great chance to get to know them then.

To be honest, I don't see why it has to be a smash brothers clone. Why can't it be like a traditional fighting game, or even something more similar to power stone? Trying to emulate what smash did is just a very narrow-minded way of looking at things.



Hmm ... more Kirby hats then ^^

woooah ... I just looked up Power Stone. The gameplay and camera angle looks awesome! 

I don't know why there aren't more fighting games with that camera angle. It seems like the perfect kind of template for a Playstation All Stars game : D 



Too many balance issues though



Le problem is there ISN'T many PS or Xbox all stars.
Let's be honest here, how many chatecters from Sony or Microsoft first party can you think of that is say... Higher than Rosalina in terms of relevence on thier console?
