Microsoft Could Totally Pull Off Its Own Super Smash Bros. Clone

With Sony doing it's own Super Smash Bros. type game with PlayStation All-Stars, Xbox-loving commenter rbranyan3to wonders if it wouldn't be impossible for Microsoft to do the same. How would it work? Let's brainstorm in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.

I was reading online about the Playstation All-Stars game and in the comments people were ripping on Microsoft and say that they couldn't even make a game like that since they have no exclusives or decent IP's. I did some thinking, I think Microsoft could pull it off and have it be totally awesome.

Characters would include, Master Chief (of course), Arbiter, Marcus Fenix, Banjo, Conker, The Gunstringer, Alan Wake, Splosian Man/Ms. Splosian Man, Reaver/other Fable character, Frank/Maw and that's just off the top of my head. Maybe they could get some third party games that either were exclusive at one point like Mass Effect 1 and Shepard or Call of Duty and Soap.

Maps and locations could include Halo/Covenant ship/UNSC ship/etc., Albion, the Old West, Brown and drab Gears location, Citadel if they do the third party characters, Bright Falls.

I have always preferred Xbox over Playstation and I would LOVE a title like this.

Thoughts? Comments? Ideas?

But it won't work well for Kinect, and since that's the only thing Microsoft seems to care about, no dice.

Edited: for the wrong form of "since"

MS has a lot of IP characters at their disposal, Sony was the one that had to bring in 3rd party characters to make their own IP mash-up fighter lol.

Lol, I wonder how could you say that and keep a straight face while at it.

Metal Gear Solid is not owned by Sony, but it is more closely identified with the Playstation brand,

I never even mentioned Gears, thanks for making yourself look like a fool as usual.

hmmm interesting they do have a lot of arcade titles... shadow complex, toy soldiers..... I could see this working... but if they are going to copy someone copy nintendo not sony

Featuring maps like the Red Ring of Death? ZING!

Shadow Complex guy could be cool and I think you could probably make an argument for Behemoth loaning out Alien Hominid, the Red/Blue/Green/Orange Knight, and such.

You didn't mention anything, but Gears characters are #1 (or 2 after Halo) when thinking about characters for a game like this.

Sadly for microsoft, one of their top franchises isn't even owned by them, lol.

I don't know who has more(and I really don't care) but I'm sure both have enough characters to make a 20-30 character roster

Sony would just copy Microsoft copying of Sony's copying of Nintendo...

Instead of using Snake Sony should have put in the guy from Sorcery because that's another recognizable mega Sony hit.

the end is nigh.

I know. Sony only wishes to be able to have characters as recognizable and awesome as Banjo and the gunstringer.

If John McLame is in the game it's a pass for me. It'll automatically suck. After all what's his power going to be, annoying troll posting?

Microsoft is going to start pulling random people from the VGF, make them characters, and then claim them as exclusives.
