No one is saying every hardcore game is going to the Wii. Only the most delusioned would say MGS4, FFXIII, etc. are going to have any Wii version whatsoever. Obviously the Wii fanbase has some hardcore, Resident Evil 4 sold amazingly well for being a 2 year old game.

On the other hand, if you would actually read the topic instead of assume that everyone is saying it will go to the Wii just because they want it to, you would see that there are a lot of good reasons for it to go to the Wii. Demographic and user base being the biggest ones. I never met a single person who bought KH when I was in high school, and I doubt all of the 13-18 year old kids with PS3s and 360s are going to be buying it. Square Enix seems to be very good at hitting target demographics (for example DQIX on the DS) and I think they are very aware that the demographic that plays Kingdom Hearts is younger and older than the demographic of PS360 owners. Add to that the fact that the game breaks 1 million in Japan (and it can't sell more than 1 million on either the PS3 or 360 in Japan) and the fact that the Wii is strongest in the 2 markets that KH sold best (America and Japan) and the Wii is the logical choice for a platform. You don't even have to worry about it sacrificing the graphics, as the art style of the game doesn't require powerful graphics to look good. The game is such a perfect fit on the Wii it's almost scary. It seems like it could have been made knowing that the Wii was comming lol.

So this whole graphics debate was so you can convince people it will look as good on Wii as it would on PS3 and 360? It wouldn't. Not saying it won't look good, just not as good...

What is this BS about PS3 owners all being 13-18 year olds? You think the average teen ager can afford a PS3 at the current price?

Also the assumption that teens don't buy Kingdom Hearts games is not necessarily as true as some people are contending it to be.

No, I don't think the average 13-18 year old can afford to buy a PS3.  That might explain the horrible sales, considering their target demographic can't afford their system.
