    I think KH had average sales outside Japan but did very well within. That had the benefit of the PS2 having a very broad demographic and strong sales in Japan which I don't believe is the case with the PS3 or 360. It also had the Squeenix characters to help break into the market further.

    An adult focused (adult, not GoW style 'adult') Disney game sounds extremely risky and I have no idea how you would even begin to market it so you might as well stick to the largest and most likely audience.

    I think your missing the point, this game doesnt look like the Wii is the correct demographic. It *looks* like more of a adult gamers game and adult games don't do well on the Wii.

    Kingdom hearts done great everywhere (but esp. good in Japan).

    If it is an adult 'disney game' and its good, it will sell loads on PS3/360.

    Also it's worth noting they significantly dumbed down the latest Kingdom Hearts game for the DS audience. Different developer I know, but it shows what the market research lot must be telling the devs

    All these people who only like grown-up games on grown-up consoles trying to rationalise why a Mickey Mouse game should be on the 360 or PS3.

    It appears you posted in the wrong thread.

    I know, an old post. But I disagree. 358/2 Days, whilst dumbed down for DS audience, is more complex than Kingdom Hearts II. That's truly dumbing down and I hope that KH does not go down that road again.

    As for Epic Mickey, I'm still looking forward to it. Unlike a lot of people, I still kept my Wii as I believe good games will come out instead of trading it in and wound up regretting it if another game comes out that I'm really interested in.
