Should the Sweat's Outfit be merged into Tracksuit? Other than their names and colour, they are exactly the same thing.--MrLanceVanceDance 07:43, 24 April 2011 (BST)

This is sort of similar to the (unresolved) issue we have with vehicle articles. Some vehicles that are completely different in different games but have the same name, share an article, while some are split. Similarly, some similar vehicles with different names are merged into pages with technically incorrect titles, while others are split into different articles, each with the correct title.
Merging these two articles may reduce redundancy, there is no need to have two (short) articles for very similar things with identical information. However, the incorrect title may confuse people after being redirected. I'm personally not against using technically incorrect titles though, and merging them may actually help us to compare them.
