Spector 'Desperately' Wants To Port Epic Mickey 1

GI:

Junction Point Studios boss Warren Spector still desires to port the original Epic Mickey to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. During an interview at the Game Developers Conference earlier this month, we asked Spector if he considered porting the original game to other platforms at any point during its development. (Disney Epic Mickey, Game Developers Conference, PS3, Warren Spector, Wii, Xbox 360)

Too bad the game flopped.

Supposed if he ported it and fixed the problems with it then it might be worth a purchase.

Ehmm.. no??? The game sold 3M+ copies.
maniacmayhem  +   1220d ago
Over how long a period of time did it reach 3m+, not to mention what was the original cost of production?

@maniacmayhem

Really doubt Epic Mickey was expensive to develop on the Wii.

Porting is not a bad idea.

a sequel on new consoles is not always a remedy for success. Getting the original out could help sales of Epic M 2 on the HD consoles.

Ive said it before and Ill say it again
Sony and Disney will have a deal where EM1 will come as a limited edition bonus with EM2:power of 2. And they add move support and 3D support. Kinda like how MOH came with the HD version of Frontlines exclusively on the PS3 on Disk and how Dead Space 2 came with Exstraction on PS3 and how Bioshock Infinite is coming with Move and the first Bioshock for free on PS3! We'll see this for sure!

Confirming... Bioshock infinite comes with bioshock 1?

So the game comes with 2 platinum trophies?
Sevir  +   1219d ago

perhaps mr. or ms baked goods meant flopped in the sense of it was a disappointing game that miserably failed to live up to its promise? but, yeah, this game is not worth any port, spector should focus on making the next one actually good.

3 million is still 3 million. Do people actually think that a game not selling 3 million on day one is a flop?

That is part of what is wrong with the industry now.

Also, free with EM1 free with PS3 version of EM2, calling it now.

I guess Heavy Rain was a flop, too, huh?

Man, I tell you, people have the weirdest conditions for what qualifies as a flop or a success this gen. And it seems to vary title by title. For some games, no amount of sales is enough. For others, it has to sell so many in a given period of time. And for others, it's a success if it sold 50.

Sure, for smaller, indie titles, a million or two period is good numbers, so that's one thing. And sometimes devs or publishers have expectations that are or aren't met. But it's amazing that when a game is, say, on one system and not on another, comparable sales aren't enough to be a success.

I'd like a port, if EM2 is gonna be on PS3, cuz I'd like to play the first one, and I technically don't have a Wii.

If EM:1 comes with EM:2, I'm in DAY 1!

At this point in time? Should have made it multiplatform when he had his chance.
