Forums - Gaming Discussion - Making KH 1.5 and 2.5 HD as exclusives makes no sense

Why are we acting like this is your typical JRPG anyways? This is marketing and branded as a Disney game. That changes everything right there.

Because the vast majority of its customer base are Final Fantasy fans.

Thats quite a generalization, but its not exactly false.

Rereleases make perfect sense on the successor of the previous platform. There is no established market for these games on any of the current gen systems, and the cost of advertising would be a considerable detriment. With regards to that, expecting Nintendo to advertise a mutliplat is not realistic, Microsoft might but that is unlikely too. The only reason KH3 is even on XB1 is cause SE mismanging funds and trying to keep from being capcom.

It would lose money on any other platform, so it makes perfect sense as an exclusive. The issue is that unless SE ports 1.5 and 2.5 to the ps4, then it probably won't be playable because Disney has a contract that prevents KH from being sold digitally.

I did hear that Disney does not like digital distribution unless they are close to directly controlling it. Disney might feel it messes with nastolgia factors, of which their empire is based on. If Old disney films were just available digitally, how would they sell their Anniversary editions every few years? They purposely put a strangle hold on supply, to bolster the demand.

thats cool...for their movies not sure what that has to do with games. Not like they didnt just put Mickey Mouse and Ducktales digitally. IMHO I think this might be Square's doing, they never did put Crisis Core or either Star Ocean games on PSN. They seem selective.
