'Warren Spector's newest project, the steampunk Epic Mickey, will be appearing only on the Wii. In a new interview, Spector explained why they're snubbing the Xbox 360 and PS3."
It's understandable, but still I did look forward to seeing this game on an HD console.
Probably gonna have to keep waiting then. I, on the other hand, am gonna get this on the Wii if it turns out good. edit: And this does kinda make sense. Good for him.
Its also going to be an Epic failure. Third party games dont sell on the Wii anywhere apart from japan. And jus because its got mickey in it doesnt mean it will sell. It would sell more on the PS3 ansd 360.
Hardcore 3rd party games on Wii are a complete waste of time. Minor cash-ins that, sadly, will be quickly forgotten.
and why no body cares
^cared enough to click the article (and respond!)
Got nothing with wii, but wii is just for zelda game for me, and smash brothers, nothing more or less.
his reasoning makes perfect sense, and is the same that most developers do when making their games. But yet your still gonna get people sh!tting on epic mickey because its on the wii, as if there's no way in hell a good game could be made on the wii.
I wish it was coming for 360 though. I'll just have to dust off my Wii, I spose..
because you didn't add the PS3 in your wishing...::sniffle::
It would be better on PS3
sure you don't have a ps3 danielle? lol! jk
I'm too poor for a PS3, hafta stick with my 360. <3 So... Yeah. I still wish it was coming out for 360, but I guess I'd be okay if it went to every platform. QQ more, you silly PS3 fanboys =P <3
you should get one! lol it's now only 299! there's no reason now not to get one lol
it looks interesting im sure it will sell specially on wii they were made for eachother.
HD kids seem really insecure about buying anything that might be even remotely open to all ages and creeds. My guess is okami would never make it on HD consoles and wii owners are such a diverse crowd of people who will buy fun unique games. HD owners aren't happy unless it's dull drab generic and graphically ridiculous.
"My guess is okami would never make it on HD consoles " My guess is your guess is dead wrong, You think it did well on the Wii? lol And "unique" games do pretty damn good on HD consoles, Just look at some of the titles on PS3; Flower, PixelJunk games, Little Big Planet, The Last Guardian, etc. If Mad World or No More Heroes was on PS3 they'd do FAR BETTER than they did on the Wii in my opinion.
"My guess is your guess is dead wrong, You think it did well on the Wii? lol" I believe it did worse on ps2...
@oobob, Yep, Wii-Okami sold more with an install base thats 1/4 of the 120 at that time. Kinda sad really...
I'm not so sure many people are really going to care this game is a Wii exclusive. Trust us Warren Spector, 360 and PS3 owners don't mind sitting this one out. Afterall, it's a Mickey Mouse game that looks like Bubsy 3D. Oh, BTW, you may wanna do some research on the poor sales figures of 3rd party games that don't contain any Nintendo characters on the cover of the box. Good luck!
putting ALL gamers in the same box as non-gamers view us: that we are all blood-thirsty, social degenerates that only respond to games that are full of intense violence, sex, and drugs. i LOVE GTA. i LOVE MGS, and other M-Rated games. But i also LOVE Ratchet and Clank, Flower, even Animal Crossing. games that are generally categorized as "kiddy" games. Warren Spector is making an error in generalizing all gamers. believe me, there would be an audience for Epic Mickey on the HD consoles. it's more of a matter of them not wanting to increase their budget to produce an HD version of the game at this time. the outside thinking of our industry won't change until the INSIDE thinking of our industry changes. we need to have more faith in the gamers, and not pre-judge them just because some of the more popular games are violent. Ratchet doesn't have to sell 8 million copies to be a hit, and neither does Epic Mickey. i'm really intrigued by the game, but too bad i won't be picking it up (no Wii, nor do i plan on getting a Wii anytime soon. not until Wii HD hits at some point in the future).
said, Figboy, couldn't have said it better myself. Just look at the following Kingdom Hearts established on the PS2, many fans want to see it on the PS3 instead of the Wii (if it was ever announced I mean, and it' isn't looking good).
"i LOVE GTA. i LOVE MGS, and other M-Rated games. But i also LOVE Ratchet and Clank, Flower, even Animal Crossing. games that are generally categorized as "kiddy" games. " But you can't deny the fact that the majority of "gamers" are likely to cry that a game is "kiddy". The whole thing between "hardcore" and "casual" is such rubbish. The media and gamers have created this image that "hardcore" gamers want violence and blood, and the so called casual gamer want sudoku puzzles only. People are much more diverse than that, no matter how " hardcore " anyone is. I still think that due the disbelieve in the wii when it was announced, Wii has been misused with cheap cash-ins and whatnot( with some exceptions). Only a year later developers started to create more quality games. But apparently that wasn't enough either. I guess the bad taste of pathetic ports and mini games have really ruined it for "gamers" who think they are "elite". "Casual gamers" have been around for ages, its just this gen that "gamers" have emphasized on the part "casual". Its really the media and gamers who make themselves believe that some delusional image is true. While you say you also like the more friendlier games, you cant blame the developer for thinking like that. We gamers screwed it up for ourselves. ( i really hate the word hardcore and casual. Like i said even casual gamers are diverse and do not want mini games only )
because no other console wanted it lol, game look bland anyway i don't how dark can a disney character can get anyway
because garbage belongs to garbage can
So that's why you post here?
Was a little jealous it was a Wii game after I saw the concept art. I thought it wasn't fair that it wasn't coming to PS3(which is getting motion controls). Then I saw it and it isn't steampunk, it's probably one of the ugliest games i've ever seen. I threw up in my mouth at the abomination that this game is. It's a shame. Another game heading to the wii to die. Epic Mickey is an Epic Disgrace
lol all yall people are hating just cuz its on the wii well guess what i doubt warren spector cared what you have to say either. btw im excited that this is coming for the wii only. go back to play your shooting games and god of war whatever cuz one thing for sure i be having fun playing this game once it come out
One more game I will pick up when I get my wii. I wonder what the dev costs are on this one. Maybe 5 millon?
I'll be honest on the screens I've seen. It doesn't look bad. I have actually seen the article in game informer. I'm not making brash generalizations based off of crummy scans of 6 pictures which were also inflated to make big enough for the web. There are a buck of screens I saw that showed some beastly robot monster and various enemies. Though who cares. Just another quality title that people who generalise the wii to avoid and miss out on. My guess is this will be a big hit and because of posters like the ones above who represent Hd "gamers" it will NEVER hit 360 or ps3.
um because these types of games are only possibly on the wii. "go back to play your shooting games and god of war whatever cuz one thing for sure i be having fun playing this game once it come out" lol yeah that's all they seem to have to choose from on those systems.
i hope this game turns out good
Looking forward to this game... I don't know why people still argue with those who don't want good games on Wii... It's pointless. If you seriously enjoy games no matter what system, ignore the fanboys all they want is attention.
Trolling is like internet safari or pokemon: gotta collect all the degenerates.
but without advertising it will flop
they should advertise it. that seems to be the downfall of wii games. and it doesn't help nintendo doesn't give out demos either, and i doubt they'd add M rated games on the nintendo channel, maybe thats why wiis M rated games do so poorly. anyway i wonder who is going to voice mickey... if you didn't know the VA for mickey died a while back.
It could have been the kind of quirky game that the Playstation likes to throw up from time to time and which gets cult acclaim (like Ico- but that didn't sell that well) but they'd have had to make it look more like some of the concept art i.e. more like Bioshock to stand a chance of getting great sales on either the PS3 and the Xbox360. Although the Wii might seem like the safest bet saleswise, and has the most owners, the bad news is that quirky games like Mad World- and many third party games in general- haven't always sold that well on the Wii. But if they invest in some TV advertising then they might get get enough people interested. If Nintendo's own adverts are anything to go by, this may involve some British celebrity enthusing about Mickey Mouse.
I just read the Game Informer article on Epic Mickey. It looks pretty fun. It has some things in common with Okami, you know that game dont you Sony fanboys? Critically acclaimed and yet hardly anyone bought it. Man the list of Wii must own titles keeps on growing. If you guys only care about graphics what are you doing console gaming? That is the poor mans Porsche of HD gaming.
