PS All-Stars Battle Royal: Is it too much Like Smash Bros or Just Right?

Players can’t help but compare games to other games. One of the largest comparison going through the video game industry of the recent months have been the comparison of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal and Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. These are both games with a similar motive for the player and for that the new PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal is receiving a whole lot of negative attention. Nintendo had started a game so similar to what Sony is trying to pull off; the gathering of the console exclusive characters in a brawl setting to battle against one another. It became a huge hit among Nintendo fans and all gamers alike. Although both games are very much so similar is there a reason to hate PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal past the comparison it has to Super Smash Bros?

All in all, fans shouldn’t show hate for either game. Why? Both PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal and Super Smash Bros are unique titles. Of course, not in the sense of distinctive in game play because the whole fundamental of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal was pretty much stolen from that of Super Smash Bros but because of the characters. Sony is attempting to make a game with all of its fan favorite exclusive characters for its fans just as Nintendo started with theirs. Those who play PlayStation may not play Nintendo and by taking that into account PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royal is a completely new experience for them. If you are a Nintendo fan, don’t bother with Battle Royal because its intent isn’t to please you.

When taking the target audience into account, Play Station All-Stars Battle Royal shouldn’t receive as much hate as its getting. All in all, they are two different games with the same objective, different fan base and different characters. In reality it’s a smart move for Sony and a lot of Sony fans are in full support of it. It wouldn’t be a bad idea of Microsoft to follow in both Nintendo and Sony’s footsteps.
