The Pros and Cons of Having Kingdom Hearts III on Wii/PS3/360

#1 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

Fellow Keyblade Masters (and Disney fans), 
 
I was thinking while I was driving today, and thought about how KH3 would work...and on what console it would be on.  It got me thinking, so here's some of the things i think that make KH3 great on one console, or another console.  Keep in mind, KH3 has no chance to come out before 2013.  Nomura has been very blunt in saying Versus XIII is out in late 2012 or early 2013...so give him two more years for KH3 and you'll see it in 2013-2015.  This is also assuming KH3 is not on a console we dont know about, and is for a console currently in production. 
 
Wii Pros 

  • Huge Market with Target Audience
  • Unique Controls, If Nomura Wants
  • Graphics Will Be KH2 Upgraded
  • Nintendo Related Worlds, Sora Fights with Star Fox!
 
Wii Cons 
  • All the side stories for KH have been exclusive to Nintendo.
  • Motion Controls would make Wii version pointless, as the Move can do the same but better.
  • How many kids who own a Wii have played or were old enough to remember KH?
  • Graphics suck....KH2 looks dated.
 
360 Pros 
  • A lot more consoles sold than PS3.
  • 360 users buy games in tenfolds.  Every hyped game has sold millions more than Sony games.
  • Microsoft Worlds, picture Sora and McChief fighting the Heartless.
  • Debatable Better Graphics than PS3 if Optimized
 
360 Cons 
  • The creator of Kingdom Hearts hates the Xbox, and has said many times he would never make a game for it.
  • How many 360 users would seriously buy Kingdom Hearts?  
  • Kingdom Hearts has never touched a Microsoft console, the "story" is lost.
  • No one in Japan would ever buy it.
  • If made with the PS3, there would be scaling back...as Nomura has said would happen with Versus XIII.
 
PS3 Pros 
  • The engine is already done, and runs fine.
  • Every proper KH story has been exclusive to a Sony console:  KH, "KH CoM", KH2, KH BBS
  • Only console to support full uncompressed audio, and if Versus XIII is to judge...the chick who does KH music has gained so much skill.  The audio will be a treat.
  • Graphics will be outstanding, if Versus XIII is to be looked at as an example.
  • Move Support makes a Wii Version futile.
 
PS3 Cons 
  • No one owns a PS3 compared to Wii and 360 users.
  • Square Wants Money, doesn't care about Nomura's vision.
  • How many PS3 users would really buy KH3 four to five years from now?
  • If Versus XIII fails as a PS3 exclusive, KH3 for PS3 is gone.  Period.
 
I didn't put the NGP because I don't think Nomura would put the first true sequel to KH on a portable.  I think he'd go all out, and make the game that fans have wanted since KH2 (not counting v13 of course).  So, what do you guys think?  KH3 is still a far way off...but Nomura did say that once Versus XIII is done...it's full work on KH3.

A pro for the 360: " A lot more consoles sold than PS3"
 
Really?

He explicitly said KH 3 will be worked on after Versus?

Yeah, he was asked that a lot during recent interviews and back during the KH3D stuff.  He flat out said after Versus XIII, it's full on with KH3.

It will definitely be on PS3, the question is whether it will be on 360 as well. 
 
And although I doubt a direct sequel would come to Wii, I think you are discounting the market considering the two KH titles in the DS library.

As long as KH3 isn't on the next gen consoles or the NGP, I will get it on anything.  PS3 is pretty much a given if it comes out this gen.

yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if a special version was made for the wii, but I'd probably guess that it would suffer too much from being on all 3 consoles

There surely will be announcements or talks of next-gen consoles by 2013 so I don't know if KH 3 would be this gen depending on when they start development.

This a million times. 
 
I'm almost against a KH3 at this point anyway, that shit has been whored out so many times since KH2 that I wouldn't even have a fucking clue what was going on or who half of the identical looking characters are.

...you only need to play KH, KH2, and BBS though for the story.   O_o

That is the most sense I've been able to make out of the KH series since I finished after KH2 :D lol

They should take their time with Kingdom Hearts 3 to make it amazing. And please, no motion controls.
