Of course it's a rip-off, you don't need to be a genious to see that. It's still gonna be a great game so who the hell cares.

Also this guy shouldn't point fingers. Have lost count on how many times I've heard people say how Okami is a rip off of Zelda.

It's not like he's lying or anything. I'm not saying it's going to be a bad game, but I'm pretty sure it will be if either Crash or Spyro are M.I.A. from the character loadout.

Just about everyone copies everyone in some way or another in this industry. Why is this "news"?

am i like one of the few people that wonders why Toshinden, you know...Sony's flagship fighting game that was popular in the 90's isnt at least reasonable to add some cameos?

Dont get me wrong, Ill be trying this game as much as everyone else will be, it just feels like sony is just throwing some icons that the ratio of lets say, 4/5 are pretty much "new gen" and ignoring alot of classics.

LZ Schneider Hideki Kamiya is a huge persona in the industry, and the combination of this views on PlayStation All-Stars and his attitude towards the industry/moral stance was significant enough to share. In my opinion, of course.

Of course its a rip off. The whole industry is full of Rip offs and repeated themed games. Too many zombie games, FPS shooters are the same. Lack of creativity in the gaming industry that they're starting to use the same formula for past games. As Kuje said people have been saying that Okami is a rip off of TLoZ Series. This is a rip off of Super Smash Bros Brawl. So what, It will be good and different.

Yeah, because a single character is totally going to determine whether the entire game is garbage or not.

Because super smash bros would of been the same game without Mario and Luigi.

I know the game is a total rip-off of Super Smash Bros but what i kept seeing is Okami is a rip-off of Zelda. Can someone explain to me how it is a rip-off?

I've heard people say the same. Despite the obvious similarities (adventure, collectibles, cel-shading graphics) I haven't the slightest damn clue either.

When companies see a good thing and want a slice of the pie themselves they copy it. When Sonic came out and was popular everyone wanted their own furry platforming mascot, With pokemon it was catching/battling monsters. It should be obvious to everyone its a rip-off just from the trailers alone.

Character wise I hope to see more of Sony's IPs represented in some way. I'd love to see the talking weapons from the Dark Cloud series make their way in some how.
