How is what they're trying to do any different then Smash Bros.? Besides, I think Raiden is a good addition. And honestly, if the combat is somewhat relatively close to smash, imma be all over it.
Another bonus, PS3 has DLC unlike the Wii so i would assume quite a bit of DLC characters coming
I think that's the point. Smash Bros was all about just random fighting and having a good time with it. Sony's version seems to be "Let's go back to what people used to like, but try and add modern things like juggling and massive combos and super awesome graphics!" completely ignoring that a lot of the charm of the older games was that it WASN'T about juggling and massive combos and super awesome graphics.
