Nintendo: Sony Is Apparently Working On A Blatant Smash Bros Clone For PlayStation 3

This sounds completely ridiculous but apparently Sony has been hard at work creating a Super Smash Bros clone for the PlayStation 3. The game, which has yet to receive an official title, will apparently bring together a host of characters from the PlayStation portfolio including Nathan Drake, Kratos and Sly Cooper amongst others.

      1. Sony has enough exclusives for this game is be similar to the original Smash Bros.
        They don’t have enough exclusives to match up with Melee or Brawl.

        As for Microsoft, they have many exclusives since they have the PC as well, and they also publish many games for the 360 that aren’t even made by first or second party devlopers.

      2. Microsoft has Halo & Conker as their main exclusives.

        but really…. if Microsoft decides to copy sony as always then Master Chief Vs Conker?

      3. Microsoft has nothing to do with PC gaming. That’s why PC gaming isn’t nearly as limited. The PS3 does have the exclusives to pull this off and Microsoft doesn’t.

      5. Sony has plenty of exclusives. It’s not as though Melee or Brawl just used one star character from each Nintendo franchise. They used multiple characters from the same series, and there’s no reason Sony couldn’t do the same if they wanted. And many people didn’t think the original SSB could work either, and it managed to, even with all the different game play styles of the different series.

        And Nintendo wouldn’t have a leg to stand on for suing them. By that logic, Capcom could have sued Nintendo for ripping off the original Marvel vs. Capcom.

      6. Just how exactly did nintendo rip off marvel vs capcom? If anything they’re two different games with different play mechanics which I shouldn’t even have to tell you. That’s like saying sonic ripped off mario,and sony only has enough exclusives for one game unless they do what they’re best at and that’s whoring themselves to a bunch of third party companies while dumping out cash like the joker in the 89 batman movie. Oh and by the way,the first ssb damn sure as hell could’ve and did work since it was a brand new and original idea for a fighting game that came from nintendo. It’s basically taking your rage out on the nintendo characters that pissed you off over the years but you wouldn’t know that now would you.

      7. Kratos vs drake? WTF KRATOS WOULD RAPE ANY OTHER SONY CHARACTER! HES IMPOSSIBLY STRONG! Plus theyre such different genres that it qould be a train wreck! No art style could even acuratly depict those characters(Kratos,Drake,Sly) in one game! THIS GAME WILL FAIL. Calling the flop right now. This may be the biggest sign that sony directly copies nintendo, its true I mean holy shit this is the WORST idea for sony. EVER!

      8. Games like these don’t typically adhere to one art style. And just look at Smash Bros. Brawl. If Ganondorf can be beaten by Kirby, I see no reason why Drake can’t beat Kratos.

      9. Kirby has beaten things much stronger than him in his games, drake has too but with guns. And having played every god of war game(including both psp games), kratos would slaughter bare handed drake in seconds. Ive seen kratos kill cronos, thats enough to have me draw this conclusion. I still think this is a good idea, but hey, I don’t have to buy it.

And if it does release on the same day as super smash bros universe then yes it will fail because with each ssb game that comes out it gets better and better. Sony would have to pull something out their ass to even compete with nintendo since the new one is gonna be for 3ds and wii u. Also we already know sony directly copies nintendo right down to the very core but because people only see the name sony they turn their backs on nintendo which is one of the reasons why nintendo hates america. Fuck both of you sony and america,I could be playing mother 3 on the gba right now.

        Sony usually uses new IPs each gen.

        I love Sony and Nintendo, and I have played almost every Zelda, Metroid, Pokemon, and main series Mario game.
        It’s just some of the comments here are astounding, saying how Sony copies everything from Nintendo, which is a flat out lie.
        And how Nintendo is innovative all the time while Sony is not.

        Motion controls, touch screens, 3D, and etc. have all been around before Nintendo implemented them into their consoles. Sony/MIcrosoft/SEGA weren’t innovative in those aspects either.

      Nintendo uses Pokemon in SSB (did you even know this?), so they have hundreds of Pokemon to choose from, never mind all their characters from other series.

        So as I’ve already pointed out Pokemon (btw, there’s nothing stopping Nintendo including every single Pokemon if they wanted to), do you also know how many characters there are in the Mario series? They could make Smash Bros simply from choosing characters in those games, and they wouldn’t even have to stretch to using standard Goombas or Koopas and the like.

        Here they all are…

        Mario
        Luigi
        Peach
        Rosalina
        Daisy
        Yoshi
        Toad

        Petey Piranha
        Tatanga
        Wario

        Then you have all the characters in the Zelda series, the rest of the Kong’s, Metroid, Kirby, Fire Emblem, Earthbound, Ice Climbers, Kid Icarus, etc, etc.

    1. You can’t sue anyone for making a game that’s of the same genre as one you made. Quit being an idiot and THINK for once. You cannot copyright a genre. You cannot copyright an IDEA. You CAN copyright specific implementations of that idea. If Sony were using Nintendo’s artwork, music, first-party characters, or code without permission or license, then — and ONLY then — could Nintendo sue. If Sony makes the game entirely with their own art, music, code, characters, etc, then nobody can do a damn thing. That’d be like the guys from Minecraft suing the guys from Terraria just because they use similar ideas. That’s stupid. The artwork is different, the gameplay is different, the music is different, the game engine running the whole damn game is different, so there’s no possible charges here.

    Don’t let Sony see this but what about a mind control character to keep them origional, but that will be only one thing origional about the game ^_^

  29. You guys apparently never heard of “Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter” which was released 1997 for arcades, one of the best cross overs in fighting games. SSB was released in January 21, 1999 so it WASN’T the first one. before you Nintendo fans start accusing Sony of copying or being “un-innovative”, you have to first get some facts straight.

    And as for you Sickr, I am kinda getting tired of going to this website looking for good news and all i see is FLAMEWARS.

    “This sounds completely ridiculous but apparently Sony has been hard at work… ” sigh.

    If Sony wants to make a cross-over fighting game, LET THEM! its not gonna hurt SSB in any type of way. it gets annoying when the only comeback Nintendo fan has is “well Sony isn’t innovative”. while some of it is true (move), Nintendo fans don’t actually take there time to see the innovative stuff Sony has made over the years, just the ones Nintendo make. let me end my comment with a quote.

Nintendo milk’s the same cow every generation, and every generation they get more famous.

        -look, some people actually DON’T like Nintendo games, weird right? same goes vice versa, so saying Nintendo first-party are better than Sony’s is based on PERSONAL PREFERENCES.

  34. Sony has enough characters to do this, but can they pull it off? Last time they tried to make a Pokemon clone, we got Invizimals. When they decided on a Nintendogs clone, we got a game where you were supposed to wash a creepy monkey. There have also been some Smash Bros clones, yet the one that comes close to even be consider a good clone was TMNT Smash Up, and that was done using the Smash Bros engine and using people who had worked on SSBB. The bad example would be that 3DS game where you use Cartoon Network characters; seriously, they destroyed my cartoon network childhood with that game.

    Smash Bros games were designed to be fun from the start, so they build from that and adjust the characters according to that principle. Sony characters, like Kratos, are not on the same boat. Making the game less gory would “tarnish” the view of those characters. At the same time, making the game too bloody would affect other characters, such as Sly Cooper and Sack Boy, and it would make the game look more like Mostal Kombat. We already have something in the middle in the form of Street Fighter, Tekken, and Soul Calibur. Also, the types of characters they have may not work properly in a more traditional style = Kratos vs Sack Boy.

    I’m not saying it’s impossible for them to pull this off, but their characters are very inconsistent to each other, so it’s going to be hard for them.

    Like

    1. This I agree with completely. Sony does have a lot of exclusives and I guess they could scrape the barrel and maybe buy a few non-exclusive characters if they wanted a roster as big as SSBB (which was ridiculous, BTW).

      And to those of you who say that Kirby and Zelda are two genres extremely far removed from each other, they’re not really. Zelda has never been a gory game, the violence has never been the focus and it’s always had some form of humour in it. While LoZ can be dark, more often than not it is lighthearted, so the point of Kirby not meshing well with Zelda is a moot point.

  39. Well, first of all, Super Smash Bros isn’t a trademarked genre of game. It’s a platform side-scrolling fighter. I doubt Sony is working on something that’s terribly like Smash Bros. That game does have a few specific things it brought to the table that no other game has. But Cartoon Network Punch Time Explosion is more of a rip-off than anything Sony has announced.

    Honestly though, I wish people would just be nicer in general. Sony has their ideas, Nintendo has theirs, and Microsoft theirs. They all pretty much take each other’s ideas. None of them are really all that original. And a lot of games are just similar ideas to others. I don’t see a game with Sony characters working quite like Smash Bros personally, Kratos would just not fit in with Nathan Drake and Sly Cooper. I mean, really? I’m curious where this rumor started. It just doesn’t sound right.

  40. Hey guys, STOP ATTACKING SONY JUST FOR AN IDEA. I used to think that I was a Nintendo fanboy, but when looking at some comments I’ve realized that I’m not.
    The problem here, is that we still don’t know anything about this game to call it a rip off. You may say that they’re getting their characters from their exclusives and all, but isn’t that what a crossover game does? If you think that this another copy from Sony, then you should remember that Nintendo didn’t invent crossover fighting games.
    I don’t like Sony, I’m totally pro-Nintendo, but when I see that Sony is attacked by some rumor I think that it’s not fair.
    I know Sony has copied Nintendo in certain things and will continue to copy them (saying that they’re going to put glassless-free 3D to the successor of the Vita if the 3DS does well, anyone?), but you can’t say that for making a game from a game genre that already exists…

    Like

    1. The fighting genre is nice and all, but from what has been said, this game will make use of items that will give the edge to characters or may hinder them. Look up the story. I know there are other games like that, but if we look back at the trend, they had Crash Racers in the past; now it’s Mod Racers. Sony can make games like GT5, but those other two games look awfully similar to Mario Kart. They attempted to get a hold of the Pokemon market with Invizimals for the PSP. Then, they made that Nintendogs clone, Eyepet.

      They have the right to create all the games they want, but it’s hard to argue where they’re coming from and what kind of market they want to get a hold of. They made fun of Nintendo with the Wii, yet they released their own motion-based controller and didn’t even attempt to hid it. People criticize Nintendo for their weird peripherals, like the GB Camera, but what about other companies like the PSP Camera?

      That’s the rage of fans. Nintendo gets the short end of the stick for trying different stuff, yet it’s the competition that gets the thumbs up. If you remember, the entire gaming media laughed at Nintendo when they first showed the Vitality Sensor, yet Sony is apparently working on one of its own, but they seem to like that? How does that even make sense?

      2. Nintendo isn’t under appreciated.

        The reason the 3DS isn’t that appreciated right now is because of what happened to it. It had a bad launch and won’t really start getting better until the end of this year.

        The 3DS was $250 at launch (the same price at the Vita at launch.)
        The vita is more powerful than the 3DS.

        Plus, do you guys think it was a good idea for Nintendo to announce this 2nd slide-pad add on? It should have been in the 3DS since the beginning imo. And then there is the whole 3DS Shop thing where 3rd party developers couldn’t give things away for free. (I’m not sure if Nintendo has fixed this or not.) Nintendo still region locks their systems as well. This wouldn’t be a problem if NoA localized games the fans have been asking for.

      3. I’m pretty sure the second circle pad was requested by third party developers. Nintendo has a good record of working with just one analog stick and the touch screen in the DS gen.

        As for the free things, are you talking about games or what? If it’s games, like those in smartphones, you should know the only reason they can give those away for free is because of ads. People who consider themselves more intense gamers, gamers who really enjoy playing video games like Mario, Zelda, GoW, Assassin’s Creed, etc, do not really like ads in their games. Maybe if it was hidden in some way like a burger shop in a GTA game, but they don’t like pop up ads on their games. Those are not present in any of the consoles. Nintendo also supports small developers, but they don’t support those who make an app of someone pissing on a toilet that you show to your friends. They support people who want to pursuit a career in video games.

So they had to charge $2-3 for something that they wanted to give away for free.

    PS3 has Blu-ray – That’s innovation, right?

    PS2 had Eye Cam – So the Wii having motion controls is copied too!
    PS1 had a controller with 2 joysticks before Gamecube – I guess the Gamecube copied the PS1 again!
    PS3 controllers have sixaxis motion – That’s innovation, right?
    PS2 had online – That’s innovation, right?

    Genesis had 16-bit before the SNES – So Nintendo copied SEGA!

    Some arcade games had side-scrolling – So Nintendo copied that, right?!

    Other fighting games have had crossovers before… – So Nintendo copied them, right?!

      Some of those examples you use are correct, but as is usually the case, some of them are wrong as well.

      Ignoring the rather silly examples that were simply advances in technology (like the 16 bit one)…

      The NES had 3D (Virtual Boy says hi as well), Motion Controls, and it even had a modem enabling online connection. This was all well before Sony even contemplated entering into the market.

      The PS1 was originally a CD add-on for the SNES, so saying that Sony used discs first is a little disingenuous.

      I just want to comment on the DVD thing. Sony is a electronics company. They simply found a way to promote their other products using gaming. They tried to sell 3D TV with the help of the PS3, but they have failed so hard that it’s causing them a lot of trouble right now.

      Btw, the gamecube does NOT have two sticks; it has only one and a C stick. It’s not really the same and Nintendo has a long reputation of working with just one stick. The ones on the Wii U are not sticks either, so that shows how little you know about actual tech.

      Nintendo had motion controls in the NES. They also had a camera on the GB. They created the analog stick (the from from Atari was actually a stick sitting on top of a D-pad, so it’s not an analog stick).

      Also, remember the failed Virtual Boy? Yeah, pretty interesting history, wouldn’t you agree?

      PS2 had online? The gamecube had online too! Wait, isn’t that copying Sony then? Well, look up the Satellaview and get informed kid.

      The sixaxis is nothing more than a failed attempt to compete with Nintendo. They had motion controls in the GB and in the NES.

      And about your comment on the first CD machine, I guess Sony is copying nintendo with the card format on the Vita, right?

      They had shoulder buttons first and they introduced the rumble feature.

      You need to get informed about gaming history if you even want to try to make a logical argument on this matter. And the disorganization I made was because of me being tired right now, so good luck with that.
