i might think a multiplatform KH3 360/PS3
For the wii-square enix might come up with an entirely new IP
that resembles KH series-it's too late for SE to support nintendo with its current IP
Not 360 with its crap sales in Japan. PS3 I hope not. It might not go to PS3, anyway.
Actually, 360 is a possibility. We're not talking Dragon Quest here. Look at these figures:
As you can see, the bulk of Kingdom Heart's sales have come from Europe and America (over 75 percent). Compare this to Dragon Quest:
Where something like, oh, 90-95 percent of sales come from Japan. If Square was to put ANY of their franchises on the 360, it would be Kingdom Hearts, as it's the most Western-leaning franchise they have. They have spoken openly of spreading the love this generation -- not focusing on Sony, but dividing their efforts amongst all three consoles -- and if 360 really is going to get significantly more development from SE than the original Xbox did, Kingdom Hearts is basically the only major franchise they have that could reasonably fit into the 360's demographic.
Hmmm.... nah, not likely.
"Not likely" I can agree with. I think the Wii is more likely, but I don't think the 360 is completely impossible. I'd say it's... oh... a 10 percent chance that the game will go to the 360. I pulled that number out of my butt, by the way.
IMO, 10% 360, 47% Wii, 43% PS3. But I'm just hoping 100% Wii right now . Anyway friends?
I'd say the Wii is actually more likely than you're giving it credit for (which sounds like a good thing for you). Read this article:
The relevant text: "The article also repeats press reports concerning Square Enix, now a strong supporter of Nintendo formats, which suggests that the publisher will not develop any new titles for the PlayStation 3 until sales improve."
We had a long discussion about this in the forums last week, but the general consensus was that the games currently in development (those being Final Fantasy XIII, XIII Versus, and Last Remnant) are still a go, but everything else on PS3 is on hold unless/until sales improve. It's unlikely that any game such as Kingdom Hearts is going to be on the PS3 any time soon unless sales pick up dramatically (and it doesn't appear that's happening any time soon).
Which means that someone else is going to be getting a hefty portion of Square development, and I suspect that will be Nintendo.
