Talk:Cross-platform comparison of Super Smash Bros. 4

I'm not really able to because I'm on my phone, but it seems like this and this put side by side would work better for a comparison picture than the Pits because of their nearly identical pose and angle. Anyone willing to do this? FirstaLasto 01:44, 4 May 2014 (EDT)


I dunno about everyone else here, but I personally believe that this page still being here is redundant, especially with Miles' new proposal which we just passed, which has us mention all of the differences between the versions that have already been mentioned here. Frankly, I think having separate articles for each version of the game is the better option, so am I the only one here who thinks that this page should be deleted?

I'm inclined to agree as well. If anyone thinks this page should be retained, now's the time to say so. Miles (talk) 21:39, 15 July 2014 (EDT)
I agree with deletion as well. All this page does at the moment is list what is already found in the separate pages for each version. Berrenta (talk) 21:51, 15 July 2014 (EDT)
Nope. We should have a list of differences between the games, just as we have NTSC and PAL difference articles.Qwerty the lord Nessytrewq.jpg 21:56, 15 July 2014 (EDT)
Support. We should make sure everything mentioned here is on the SSB4 pages (including the current dual-page) and then just get rid of it. FirstaLasto 22:05, 15 July 2014 (EDT)
I support deletion per MeatBall104. blue ninjakoopa 22:12, 15 July 2014 (EDT)

I say we merge this article with the Super Smash Bros. 4 page. Harro (talk) 19:40, 18 July 2014 (EDT)

Oppose. The listing of features on both versions' proper pages isn't a comparison. It would be better either to let it have its own page, or merge it with the SSB4 article. - Ceci n’est pas un Smiddle. 05:55, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

Merging would probably be the best option. Dots (talk) Link OoT Dots.PNG The Player 10:04, 11 August 2014 (EDT)

The SSB4 page is already pretty damn long, and there's probably tons of differences. Why is merging a good idea? – Smiddle 07:12, 26 January 2015 (EST)

So the two versions have the same characters...but WHY?![edit]

It annoys me how no-one has said this. Anyone got anything to say on the matter, or is this literally known only to Sakurai himself? 08:18, 3 November 2014 (EST)

Sakurai should know, but in the meantime, read this. It would go better on the forums rather than the talk pages. Rtzxy Reflect.jpg Reflect!!! 15:07, 3 November 2014 (EST)

My plan for this.[edit]

I actually want to merge this into the main article eventually, but until I do, my plan is to - instead of dividing it by similarities and differences - to divide the page by subject matter, as is already the case in the differences section anyway (so Stages, Modes, Graphics, etc.) Every point of comparison between the two will then be individually marked as to whether it's in Super Smash Bros. 4 both games, or simply Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS one or Super Smash Bros. for Wii U the other, such as on the Stages page. Any objections, lady? VinSymbol.pngVinLAURiA (talk) 19:08, 5 July 2015 (EDT)

Would you mind showing an example of what you plan to do? Nyargleblargle (Talk) 19:12, 5 July 2015 (EDT)
Well, just imagine all the stuff in the Similarities section merged into the Differences section, and then marked with the appropriate icons. VinSymbol.pngVinLAURiA (talk) 19:22, 5 July 2015 (EDT)
Hmm... maybe fit some tables for more direct comparisons? Not all of them would work, obviously, but I could see some of them formatted as tables. Nyargleblargle (Talk) 20:17, 5 July 2015 (EDT)
I like it, but draft it in your sandbox first, please :D Serpent King (talk) 20:25, 5 July 2015 (EDT)

Should we replace the current 3DS "low quality model-high quality model" image with this?[edit]

(image deleted)

Although there's one already on the page, I thought of uploading one with much higher quality. It omits the Mii Brawler, but Little Mac's model differences should be notable enough. Please let me know what you think. If you want to keep the current image on the page, there's nothing wrong with that. Thanks!

I oppose a merge. While there are separate pages for the different versions that cover their specific uniqueness, there isn't any other page that compares them like this does. ---Preceding unsigned comment added by SANTY CLAWS! Or maybe DatNuttyKid. 11:36, 5 December 2015 (EST)

Support, there's nothing of value on this page that couldn't be covered neatly on the main SSB4 page or the two version pages. Miles (talk) 17:36, 5 December 2015 (EST)
