I don't think it's really in reference to Kingdom Hearts 3....I believe they are referring to Disney Interactive Studios specifically I believe. I could be wrong about that though but I think since Square-Enix are the ones making KH3, then it's up to them what console they want to put it on. I could easily be wrong about that though...

Nah, it's up to Disney.  It's their IP.  SE has to go to Disney with any KH plans before they even start on em.

This's the thing actually, is Di$ney going to stick to this policy with Kingdom Hearts? Is all at Bob Iger's hands.

Eh, who knows.  Really depends how comfortable Disney is feeling in their own skin really.

A few years ago i'd say they'd let SE do whatever they wanted off hands... but Disney Interactive is like one of the more profitable development/publishing houses out there now a days isn't it?

Of course that's even suggesting SE would want to put it on PS3... in of itself something that's unsure... considering Draqon Quest's migration to the DS/Wii... and Dragon Quest being a lot more Kingdom Hearts like then Final Fantasy, despite the later's inclusion into the franchise.


Disney may not even give a crap though.  I mean they have the rights yet you don't see them sell any Kingdom hearts merchandise ever.

 


just point out one thing, DQ has always gone to the highest selling console...If PS3/360/PSP was highest selling it would be there, Its the like the official rule for choosing DQ platform, it has nothing to do with it leaving anywhere.it just how DQ plays.

The same could of been said for FF until this generation... and likely would have if FF13 finished production on the PS2.


It's not like it's an "official rule".  It's just good buisness sense.

What your likely referring to was something said during the PS2 era as for why the Gamecube wasn't going to get Enix stuff despite being close partners with Nintendo. (They've helped Nintendo distribute their own games in japan before.)

Enix was always about one thing.  Profit.

That's why in the end they were the better company and worth more than Square at time of merger.

we all know what that means...

Hmm does Square Enix have total control deciding which console they will develop it for? Or Disney also own part of the stake? because Disney has a very close relationship with Nintendo and has faith in the Wii greatly.

If this matters, if not thats ok I am just putting it out there that i find to be interesting.

EPIC MICKEY -

""The game was originally in development for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Development on the Wii started in 2008, when the idea of addressing a Wii port of the game was raised; Specter replied that a straight Wii port would not be viable, remarking that many of the "design ideas just won't work on the Wii, we need to give the Wii its dues". Graham Hopper of Disney Interactive then suggested dropping the development of the aforementioned platforms completely, and instead releasing it solely on the Wii.[11]""



Concerning Kingdom Hearts 3:

"Square Enix riled gamers up with a bizarre quote from a Wall Street Journal article on the looming competition between Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii this fall. As the publication examined each of the platform's expected strengths, they turned a focus to the RPG powerhouse, who didn't exactly respond with the resounding exclusivity support we saw last generation.
"We don't want PlayStation 3 to be the overwhelming loser, so we want to support them," says Michihiro Sasaki, senior VP of Square Enix. "But we don't want them to be the overwhelming winner either, so we can't support them too much."

-----> "Er, what? Most came away from this quote convinced Square Enix was readying massive support for Wii, which, while possible, probably isn't the underlying message here. Rather, Square Enix likely realizes PS3 doesn't have ensured dominance this generation, and rather than pool all their support behind Sony right from the start, they're going to let the market play itself out for a while -- case in point, Square Enix so heavily supporting Nintendo DS over PSP."



--------->"Earlier in the story, however, the journalists make mention of where various Square Enix franchises are landing, specifically noting the high-end Final Fantasy sequels will find themselves on PlayStation 3, but more importantly, they have yet to decide who will receive the next Kingdom Hearts."



[What I personally believe is going to happen is this, which is perfectly said by him]:

Mr Khan @ Feb 6th 2010 5:53PM:"Depends on who's pulling the strings in the partnership. Disney is going to stump for it to go on Wii, especially if Epic Mickey does well, whereas Nomura himself is probably going to push for PS3, which would inevitably become HD multiplat
My guess is that Disney would convince Square Enix that there is more growth potential for the franchise on Wii, but that depends on whether Disney itself becomes convinced of that."

I know they're referring to the Disney Interactive games based on Disney shows, but this really gets my hopes of for Kingdom Hearts 3 for Wii
