The whole situation is quite sad. This game (and series) had a ton of potential, however that potential is now pretty much gone. Super bot really wasn't that bad of a developer (aside from those ****ing HORRIBLE menus), especially since this was their first (and most likely only) try. They really listened to the community and tried to make the game as good as possible, but Sony and the 3rd parties doomed the game.
We'll never get so see this games Melee.
Oh well, I'll keep on enjoying this one until the online is completely dead. Smash Bros 4 can't come soon enough.
