I've got a feeling they were inspired by Smash Brothers.

Looks bad, but my big beef with it is that well...to be fair Sony has a pretty shite roster of characters. It works with the Nintendo IPs because they all have fun, colorful characters that you might actually want to play...unlike flaming clown asshat, Angry albino greek and...half baked cookie-dough parappa :P

It just lacks the visual flare that kinda sells Smash bros.

Parappa looks awful in 3D.

He sure does. I don't get why they didn't just go with the old style?
Commented on 2012-04-27 15:11:37
ahahahaha Parappa looks so GREAT

Wow this game looks so bad

i dont get why they didnt put some effort in and uniform the art style. make everyone cartoony, rather then the horrible mish mash they currently have. the characters are great, but they all look jarring together.

So this is what a fist party title running on the cell looks like XD

Such a blatant ripoff. It's not quite as charming as Pikachu vs Mario either

HAhaha reading the replies had me in tears this morning, oh dear!!

Anyway, I see a kiddy PS3 coming soon! $199 PS3, Sly 4, Playstation All Stars, Ratchet Triology and probably some other games....

Hope it works out for them. This game seems to be aimed at kids for sure. And Nintendo man babies

Because they knew there was no chance of outdoing Smash

One wonders why they even bothered

Oh dear i don't think anyone will be surprised if this dies on it's arse. It must be that Sony wants to focus a little differently though because they must surely realise that despite an excellent range of characters in their bag, they're very unlikely to work outside the original ip- the trouble is Sony isn't Nintendo in this respect. It all seems very odd to me but maybe it will surprise many with amazing sales

And without honestly trying to sound like some fanboy here, maybe Sony just don't know what to do and are trying something else. If i was in charge of running Sony game's division at the time the likes of Killzone2, Gow, Lbp, Motorstorm etc were shown, then i would happily bet that this line up of impressive exclusives be enough to make a real difference. In truth it hasn't really done the trick as much as i think most gamers even would have predicted. What is it they need to do is what i'd be asking. Maybe they are just desperate because they know Sony isn't the Mike Tyson it used to be

looks fun, cannot wait to play it

Goddamn! This thing is ugly!

Waste of a development team, time, and resources. Smash Bros. works because the idea of all of them being within the same universe and having a "master hand" play with them is funny and endearing. Sony has too many serious franchises for this.

I mean maybe at the beginning of the PS2 era they could of gotten some Spyro and Crash characters to play along with Jak & Daxter, Rachet & Clank, and Sly Cooper's crew.

Microsoft are doing one too. There is that guy from Halo in the green, a Kinect camera and a Call of Duty Map Pack character too. Also the Advertisements from the Nov 2011 Dash update make a cameo. Oh and Rare Logo is another character. If anybody in the world thinks of any other characters let me know.

I am looking forward to it.

in you salty alternate world? no they are not doing anything with their IPs and neither anyone asked for it. but everyone "thought" that Sony might had a "carisma/iconic" caracthers line-up by now to Copycat(lol) Nintendo.
Glad they tried with this POS game, because they cleary Do Not. Maybe two generations ago when they were relevant to the game industy to copied and not to be the copycats.

What? All I got was "not doing anything with their IPs". Lol, what IPs? That was my point. You do realise they have announced about 3% of the amount of characters they can use and left the huge ones for later?

Wow, the fact that anyone could look forward so such a half-assed cash-in shows that the industry is already the next Hollywood.

People who played it said it plays nothing like Smash Bros. Sony has a lot of IP's and this is a good way to refresh some old faces. Nothing wrong with that....

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (44 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (45 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
