And I call that Super Smash Bros. Ripoff

Hate as much as you want, this idea is a great thing in general, and I've always wanted to see something similar for other platforms.

Anyway where's Crash Bandicoot in this? That would sell a PS3 to me.

Yeah, not sure why that's a bad thing. In fact, I'm surprised it's taken this long for anyone to really do something like this.

Agreed dude, what the heck? Thats one franchise they should not have let go. Awesome platformer series. Crash was a awesome mascot too.
