    Way to fail Nintendo. Your new console is almost dead in the water and instead of helping promote the next iteration of one of your flagship games, you stop a grass routes community who raised almost $250,000 for breast cancer ($95,000 from Smash alone) to get your game on to the roster ?.

    So what?
    They probably don't want Smash Bros to be associated the 'competitive' scene.

    Grass 'routes'? Stuff like EVO are not really grassroots. Mostly just 'hardcore' players.

    Anyway you look at it, Ninty gain nothing from this and lose something. Hardcore love must be worth something to Ninty... Even the hassle of stopping it is a complete waste of time. :/

    This is a not terribly significant failure on Ninty's part, but a failure nonetheless.

    Smash Brothers has been associated with the competitive fighting game scene since the days of the N64. Nintendo are a bit late to the party if that was their goal.

    Anyway, they've already done a Microsoft on the issue.

    I guess somebody at the top quickly realised this was going to be more negative publicity for no good reason.
