Kingdom Hearts: Not Necessarily on PS3

1up.com far-fetched take on the recent news about Square-Enix strategy for this generation.

Heres hoping Kingdom Hearts will come to 360 and it better not be a port of a past title.

Square is a third party developer, although I believe Sony has a minority interest in the company. They'll sell product where they see money, whether it's the Wii, the PS3, or the 360...oh, or the pc.

announced about Kingdom Hearts, it could likely be multiplatform considering 360 is doing good in US, and KH has a lot of apeal in US. But it is total speculation posted as news by 1up.com

Kingdom Hearts? I don't think so. It sells so much copies on ps2 that if they even thought of making it multiplatform, Sony would probably buy the licence for the game. Why would Sony let them share one of their best selling franchises with another console, ESPECIALLY the 360? This would be AWESOME if it did happen, but there is a VERY VERY VERY slim chance that it will.

UrbanJabroni6411d ago

Probably because, while Sony is an investor in Square, the company itself is a publicly traded.

Just because Sony wants something, doesn't mean they can make it happen. Officers and directors of a company have _legal_ fiduciary responsibility to do what is best for their company...if a deal with Sony has less value than a multiplatform release, the officers would have some pretty serious shareholder issues if they chose the less profitable option by going with Sony (assuming it is less profitable, which they seem to imply with their desire to keep one platform from being dominant).


It's A Crime That There's No Sleeping Dogs 2 Yet

Huzaifah from eXputer: "Sleeping Dogs from the early 2010s is one of the best open-world games out there but in dire need of a resurgence."

I agree, I consider the first one a cult classic already

You say "yet" as if it's even possible anymore. United Front Games is gone, along with anyone that made this game what it is

That’s what happens when games sell poorly. And I’ve seen people wonder why people cry when a game sells badly… this is your answer.

Majority of the time it's true but if a company/publisher is big (in terms of money), they can take a hit or 2. e.g. I am not worried about Rebirth sales as Square will make Remake 3 anyway but if FF 17 doesn't sell then Square might need to look for alternative. <-- my humble opinion

Doesn’t Microsoft own the IP now since they acquired Activision?

Sleeping Dogs was a sleeper hit back then. It was fantastic. It actually still is. Would love a sequel to this, or at least a revive of True Crime series.


Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II - PC Wore it Better

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II was an intriguing and unique RTS title, that sadly suffered in its console port.

Was just thinking about this game and wishing I had a way to revisit it. The way EA scrubs these titles from existence once their licensing runs out is horrid.

Michiel19892h ago

there is a client made by modders and it also works online.

kevco332h ago

Indeed. The game can still be played online on PC.

Xbox 360 players, though? Bang outta luck.
