You think that Square is going to break a 20 year trend of no dual platform games, so that you can play it on the 360. You site movie games as the reason (with one of your examples complete BS), and higher attach rates in the countries that it sells (which isn't true at all). I'm sorry, but the only situation I see of KH3 not being on the Wii is if development began more than a year ago. Otherwise, the spinoff will be on the PS3, and the 360 will probably get nothing (they aren't going to sacrifice 1.2 million Japanese sales for the 360 to get the game).


Have you not heard of The Last Remnant, a DUAL platform game for the PS3 and 360? I'm willing to bet the game will sell *a lot* on the 360 and PS3.


Yeah, I edited it to primary because of that. I was thinking along the lines of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Kingdom Hearts... their 3 primary game series. The Last Remnant is a new IP, and they have made occaissional smaller games into dual platforms (Itadaki Street in Japan), but they keep their primary sellers as system exclusives.


Square Enix has put the next major installment of Dragon Quest on the DS, I'm curious when was the last time they made a major new installment of one of their primary series exclusive to a handheld (and no I'm not talking about side stories or other spinoffs)? Why am I mentioning this? Well to show that not everything is like it used to be at Square Enix and that they're willing to break traditions and have been doing just that. You can go ahead and argue that it's still platform exclusive but the fact that it's moving to a handheld platform is still significant.


The reason that happened is because the DS was blowing away everything else. They want profts and money. Not graphics. Orelse they would've put it on PSP/PS3. DQ has ALWAYS went to the best-selling console. That's why they put it on PS2 last-gen too. See, DQ X could also go to the Wii after DQ IX if they feel it could be done well.

What does this have to do with this debate? Or are you just going to the usual argument of sales even though no one was even debating that. Who even brought up the issue of which console is selling better?


The thread has been completely derailed by graphics discussions. I was basically insisting people knock it off.

But the sales argument is due to the fact that, last I checked, this is a thread about where KH3 will go and I believe that, due to the Wii's overwhelming sales, it'll be the Wii.


Oh is that why all the big 3rd party games are going to Wii? Oh wait a second...


Heh, no big games are going to the PS3 and 360 because development on them started more than a year ago. Developers are now getting terrified of the Wii, and scrambling to shift focus. Every company except Konami has anounced the Wii is their primary development focus. Konami has anounced they are working on a new hardcore Wii RPG.

The Wii is the DS ckmlb. The comparisons are so close it's scary. The 360 and the PS3 together are the PSP. Where is the 3rd party support 3 years down the line? Heh, well I'll let you go count for yourself. Where was it at first? Let's just say developers better hope that sales trends change and change fast, as their 3rd party bombed really hard on the PSP, while Nintendo was supported by first party. 2 years later the PSP is all but forgotten from the development standpoint. It's flooded with ports and remakes and 2 Square Enix games. Believe me, I have trouble finding anything to buy for my PSP. The last game I bought was Mega Man Powered Up. I have 2 Square Enix games to look forward to... and that's it.

If the Wii ends up with the kind of support the DS gets, I'm very happy with my purchase. If it doesn't, I'll still get the flood of great Nintendo titles the DS got, but I'm really not worried about it at all.


You're jumping the gun a little here. Really predicting the worse for hte 360 and PS3 and the best case scenario for the Wii.

All the publishers are focusing on the Wii but what kind of games are they making? Casual oriented ones. Hence the big games will come to PS3 and 360 still with spinoffs going to Wii and the casual stuff more and more going to Wii.

Just look at SC IV, they had a chance to make it on Wii but they announced it on 360 and PS3. Why? This game was just revealed and is extremely early in development and could have been shifted to Wii.

Edit: Also you only need to look to find the great games on PSP, but clearly you are not and resigning yourself to 'oh no only ports and two Square games coming'. Are you even looking?


Lol. The PSP is only getting remakes like FF7: CC, SO1, SO2, FF1, FF2, etc. And FF Dissida which is a spin-off game. Not that good for PSP. I'm surprised they're even getting FF1 and FF2 when those were Nintendo games >_>

Yes, I'm jumping the gun a little. I'll admit that currently the direction of development is just the most likely scenario, rather than anything close to guaranteed. However, remember it took 2 years of bad sales for developers to realize they couldn't sell games on the PSP. So actually, SCIV is staying within the DS/PSP trends.

As far as what the Wii is getting from 3rd parties, you have NO CLUE. Stop saying they are all casual games, because last time I checked, you couldn't see into the future, and developmental focus has shifted within the last 2 months. So, how about we don't talk shit about imaginary games?

Yeah I look for good games, I just see too many racers, shooters, and sports games: None of which I play (other than the occaissional well made shooter, and all handheld shooters blow). But, again, we are far off track. Let's get back to the discussion.

So, since people like to simply dodge the reasoning and attack the Wii's current development trends, here are the only solutions I have heard and why:

PS3 or 360
:

-Pro: apparently movie game sales mean it will sell well? Graphics could be good.

-Con: very few systems sold, high development costs, graphics won't improve much for the increased cost, demograhic doesn't match well (this is a matter of opinion, but my personal experience is the majority of PS360 owners are between the ages 13-18. A few more up to 25), no Japanese sales

PS3 and 360:

-Pro: Graphics could be good, 2 systems combined wouldn't be far from Wii sales (other than in Japan, where the game is also popular), movie games sell well argument again (still not understanding this)

-Con: No Japanese sales, Square Enix has a history of keeping individual games in their major franchises exclusive (every FF game, every DQ game, and ever KH game) other than future remakes, doesn't match demographic well (even if you won't admit the majority is between 13 and 18, you can admit they have almost none of the under 13), high development costs, not far improved graphics over a Wii version

Wii, PS3, and 360:

Who are we kidding, this isn't gonna happen.

Wii:

-Pro: large user base especially in the 2 areas the game sells the best (America and Japan), cheap development costs, matching demographic (under 13, over 18), graphically more than capable of displaying detailed and improved cartoon graphics

-Con: um... you guys don't like the Wii? Graphics won't be quite as good... you guys still don't like the Wii? If development began more than a year ago they won't cancel it now, oh and apparently because Spider-Man 3 didn't sell well, KH3 won't.

 

Anything you guys want to add to any of those categories?


Yeah, I'll add some more... Final Fantasy 13 is coming for the PS3 and will likely greatly expand the PS3s rpg audience. That *same* audience will likely buy the next Kingdom Hearts as well. So you can't honestly claim it wouldn't have any sales in Japan.

Also there may be other *unforseen* reasons why it might end up on another console. Wouldn't it be shocking if they announced it for the 360? Why did I mention that console? Well Microsoft has publicly stated they're going to try to get and make more games for a younger and casual audiences and they're also trying to get games that attract Japanese gamers. What would be a better exclusive to try to get than Kingdom Hearts that fits exactly what they're looking for?


 Uh.... they have started KH3 or whatever it is already. And what selse does your crystal ball tell you? Do you know for sure FF XIII will be a BIG hit? No? Then stop it.




Oh for peace sake, just wait for further confirmation, I just assume the games will go to the PS3, since KH has been Playstation only, except of a spin off. Same with SOIV, since the PSOne. Although I hope WII, but so far every announcement has dissappoint me so I don't expect any miracles.

 Yeah..... and FF7 should've been on the N64 because FFs 1-6 were on the NES and SNES >_>

 

And now you say you also hope Wii when you've been giving the PS3 support for KH3 on PS3 instead of Wii? =-?

I don't think you understand what I said, do you? I don't give support to the PS3 that way I "assume" the games will go to the PS3 as Kingdom Hearts have always been on the Playstation 2 platform, except of the spin off Chain of Memories. Hoping is something entirely different then facing reality...

shut up..i concluded that your such a fanboy after reading your predictions for the future.. there is no way the ps3 gonna catch up with sales of the 360 or the wii by 2007 or mid 2008... especially with all the developers now focusing on the wii and 360

KH3 = Wii/PS3 (Wii because it'll sell best there, PS3 because KH started on PS)

KS = PS3.

 

So basically KH3 for Wii is the way to go. It'll sell better on Wii, and who cares if it started on the PS2? They moved FF from Nintendo to Sony. DQ from Nintendo, to Sony, to Nintendo, etc. so it doesn't matter to them AS LONG AS IT SELLS BETTER.

P.S. IIRC they started KH3 (or whatever it is) in February, correct? As long as they started it AFTER Jan 1 then it's for the Wi

 


 Plenty will care that it started on the PS2 because many original KH fans are also Sony fans.

Thus said,  they'd be abandoning a fairly extensive market if they released only on Wii.

 

I can pretty much, without a doubt, say it'll release on Wii because it'll sell best, but they'd be fools to abandon their Playstation roots. It'll be multiplatform.

This topic is pretty derailed. Can we let it die and just wait for more information please? People are personally attacking others now. We clearly don't have enough information to do anything but guess, so let's let it lie and wait and see.
