An often thought discussion about Kingdom Hearts III, other than when it is coming out, is what console it is going to be on. It is more than likely that is will be on a console than a handheld system, seeing that all the previous mainly main games (by that I mean I and II) were released on consoles (PS2 and PS2 respectivelly).

So then the question still remains: what console will it be on? Choices: PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii. There are many ways to look at this, and I will post them. Behold! Benifits of the PS3:

  • Square Enix does seem to prefer Sony more, as seen many times in that most of the Final Fantasy games come out on those systems.
  • Here we have wonderful graphics and resolution that totally beat out any other console! 1080p HD!
  • Just by looking at Final Fantasy XIII and how the characters look very real, just imagine the KH characters in their shoes. Huh? Huh?

Benefits of the Xbox 360:

  • Most of the stuff are like the PS3. And studies show that recent games are exclusive to PS3 and Xbox 360, as a duo.

Benefits of the Wii:

  • Disney seems to favor Nintendo more than anything else.
  • With the Wii MotionPlus, you could probably swing your Keyblade with the Wii-mote in a manner quite Skyward Sword-esque!

So there we have it, folks. Which would you prefer: <poll> Choose one. PlayStation 3 Xbox 360 Wii All three PS3 & Xbox 360 PS3 & Wii Xbox 360 & Wii None! (Even though there are no other consoles for it to come out on other than these three) </poll>

Interdiction KHD.png I'm praying that it will be availabe for the PS2. If not, I hope (though I don't expect) that it will be released for the Wii, if only because it's a system I have. It think the odds are strong that it will be at least for the PS3.

TerraCharm.pngThe PS2 was discontinued. Thus, no new games will likely be coming out for it ever again. While odds of going on to the PS3 are high, it's possibly even more likely that it goes onto the Wii, considering many fans wish for that and Square has been heavily involved with Nintendo lately.

Interdiction KHD.png Nuuooooo! [sigh] Alas, poor PS2, I knew it well...

The whole KH series should have a remake that features the whole story in a single multi-disc pack. This is fans that dont have money to buy consoles just to play the game. This should be done for all consoles.

Graphics is a secondary concern regarding Kingdom Hearts. When it comes to KH, Nomura could care less. We would have already seen Birth by Sleep on the PS3 by now, but it's not. Games are not about graphics when fun is the first priority when it comes to gameplay with KH. When KHIII does come out, it'll most likely be seen on the Wii supporting the Motion Plus so that people will be able to play the game as if the were actually wielding the Keyblade. Tryin' to get a KH game on the PS3 is telling me you only care about graphics more than playability and fun. Nomura has really done all he can on a normal console alone and he's always wanted to approach drastically different directions with gameplay with each installment. The Wii is his best bet Kaihedgie 23:13, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

A lot of people people think that it should be on Wii. But after doing some heavy investigation, I found this video on YouTube. I'm thinking that Sony might have anticipated this exact problem.

I think Sony is desperately copying Nintendo because they can't understand why they aren't most popular anymore.

For the love of everything decent! No more Nintendo! They can't handle KH, they have proven that with CoM and Days!Oh,how the sea calls 05:18, August 21, 2010 (UTC)

Vsymbol.pngWhile PS3 may keep the gameplay of the previous two games on PS2, it's upped graphics just wouldn't fit, I like the fancy highly detailed cutscenes occasionally but I like the simplistic cartoon feel more. It's like looking at what they did to Marluxia in the opening video, they made his hair more realistic and in the process (in my opinion), made it look highly funny, where as I liked the style they had for him in game. The Wii would best fit the game series in that one, it would be the first really good game for the Wii... (I haven't loved any that I've played yet, unless you count Smash Bros. Brawl but thats a different game genre.) and two it has very similar graphics to PS2 so that it would be able to continue the series in it's simplistic yet artistic way. Let me conclude with me saying, Kingdom Hearts is most definetly NOT Final Fantasy and while certain things are all well and fine for FF it is not for KH.(Err... also not to mention the PS3 is under because of the sky high pricing they tagged the PS3's with and then with an attempt to lower the price removed a crucial thing... the ability to play PS2 games as well... also they have a cheap knock-off with their motion thing like the Wii... and they just keep failing... OH! And last thing, X-Box is not the system for KH, look at all of the games, Halo, Gears of War, it's all too M for KH, if anything I hope it's the Wii, but I would settle for X-Box because cheaper pricing and good game series with definetly good graphics.

They may have had a good track record with the companies separate, but KH doesn't turn out right on such small systems. I back BBS, but the way Days and CoM's is....Oh,how the sea calls 04:23, August 22, 2010 (UTC)

Well, I discovered THIS for... oops, hold on. I found THIS on Wikipedia, am engine that was used to create the amazing graphics for Final Fantasy XIII. It has been revealed that it can be used for the Wii. Does that mean the Wii can get a step-up? I mean really, Square Enix should be able to push the limits of the Wii up to that it's near-on-par with those big HD consoles (thought not as vibrant and crisp as those but still pretty good).

Random Kid: Well, I think they should be on EVERY game system. Kingdom Hearts is just way too cool to have to be owned by something and not accessible to all. Random Kid (Aspiring Author and Cartoonist) 00:14, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

It should be on PS3 and Xbos360 because like it or no they are in it to sell it. So they will make it as easy to get as possible with it still in good quality (this is why it won't be on the Wii). Plus not everyone can aford to get a PS3 if they already bought an Xbox360!

I'm hoping for the wii for the simple reason that it's the console I own. I wholeheartedly doubt that the Xbox would get it (because it hasn't gotten a KH yet), and hope (but acknowledge that it'll probably happen) that it doesn't go to ps3, or goes to both wii and ps3. The wii actually has high definition capabilities, but not to the extent of the PS3 and RroD 360. I don't think any games have taken advantage of it yet, however. I hope that if it does go to wii, using motion control will be optional, or people (obsessive xbox and ps3 fanboys) will just mark it as a "waggle-fest", and it'll suffer.

20px-Pin_000.png 1. No1Kenkaku, fix your template 2. Oh, the sea calls, why do you hate on Nintendo? Sure, CoM had it's flaws, but that was a while ago, and Days turned out to be a top-notch game. I personally would not like to see KH3 on the Wii, because that seems like Square has not made made good games for it. However, those games were spin-offs to other Square games, so maybe a main KH game would work out better.

I already put this on another forum thingy. I personally prefer and believe this game would work out best on PS3 and nothing else. No Xbox, No Wii. Every console has it's strengths but with the upcoming (and awesome looking) FF Versus XIII exclusive to PS3 is utilising an awesome looking engine it looks like the PS3 is the way to go. In my opinion it would just seem unfitting on anything else and ever-so-slightly illogical to change current developement platforms. Antisocialite 09:58, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

i think it can be on ps3 wii and xbox because ps3 wii and xbox have motion remotes to devices but it will be great on ps3 and xbox

Anti, what do you honestly care more for in a KH game: graphics or playability? Kaihedgie 13:11, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

@ Chitalian8 1. Fix it how? 2. I dont hate nintindo, but the Wii WILL NEVER be able to grant both Graphic and Playability to the same extent as Xbos and PS3. Also motion control is the not the best way to play an RPG. 3. Multiple FF game are on the Xbos so why not KH!?

Well, I think that it would be best if it were on both PS3 and Wii. I don't think Square Enix is very fond of Xbox (wasn't FF13 a PS3-exclusive in Japan and the XB360 one was done in other countries?), plus I think that Microsoft has a whole bunch of success with the internet, and they don't need to go to video games. To some people, graphics are more important while to others playing is more important. I believe that Nintendo CAN pull off everything that PlayStation and Xbox can do, and just because the last two Nintendo KH games weren't "perfect" for everyone, they just go and shun the company. I just want things to be equal for everybody and for people to see that Nintendo can pull off an awesome Kingdom Hearts game. Frankly, if graphics were more important than gameplay itself, arcade games would be a thing of the past. (Besides, the only way we would be able to see what Nintendo is truly capable of is if the KH Team works on a game for the Wii.)

I would say that, maybe the Wii might be a suitable canidate for the making of KH3 but perhaps for a spin-off game of some sort.Even though I do have a Wii and it would save me a bit of money trying to buy a new PS3 for just a game that I would definitely play. But it would be a good idea to release the new game on both consoles and maybe include a Wii classic controller to get the feel for a classic RPG. Hopefully Square Enix would take this into consideration and hopefully any news concerning this be put on the wiki as soon as possible , in the meanwhile, I'll keep my ear on the ground for more news.

I liked both CoM and Days its not that I don't like Nintendo but I think they need to stick with what thair good at, Pokemon and Spin-Offs!

I agree with J. Severe.The only new system I have it the Wii.The other new systems include the PS3,PSP,and theXbox360.Since a lot of KH fans have certain systems,KH III should come out on as many consoles as possible.I would love it to come out on the PS3 but I don't have one and they are REALLY expensive.And with Kh:BBS coming out soon,I have to talk to my mom about getting a PSP.Anyways,I really do think it should come out on all three.A person could have any combo of the three.If it came out on only one or two of the consoles,some KH fans would not be able to play it.Matthew26 02:35, September 2, 2010 (UTC)

@ Kaihedgie, i'm sorry for my comment not being clear. I don't even know if you'll ever read this but I do care about Gameplay in video games (especially KH), it should always take priority. I know i'm sounding like a friggin' hypocrite but I DO CARE ABOUT GAMEPLAY. Also the power in Xbox 360's and PS3's can also be utilised for things other than "flashy graphics" like bigger battles, crazier level design and such. I don't hate CoM or Days I really did enjoy them and their status as a "Nintendo KH" does not influence my opinion. And if it did come out on Wii it wouldn't suck, but everone's entitled to their opinion (and just be aware I don't hate those who don't agree) and mine still rests with the PS3. You can still have brilliant gameplay on any system. And those who prefer the Xbox & PS3 care just as much as the rest of the people on here when it comes to gameplay.

I was doing research and I found some random game called Conduit for the Wii, which is said to have graphics so good that when the game was initially announced, people thought it was for Xbox 360. :D

If they don't make KH3 for the Wii, I hope they DO eventually make a KH game for Wii. Not like a spin-off or something like that, but a side game like 358/2 Days, BBS, coded, and 3D. But a main game for Wii would really open doors for the company and mnake things great for everyone!
