Unlocking the Keyhole of Exclusivity: Kingdom Hearts 3


As we all know, Kingdom Hearts, an RPG series developed by Square Enix, has seen most of its titles debut on a Playstation system or handheld. Never has the Kingdom Hearts series turned to a non-Playstation device except for Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on the Game Boy Advance, or a few select titles on cell phones. Square Enix has undoubtedly favored Sony’s Playstation brand over the other competitors since the Playstation’s first debut, giving it exclusivity with almost every Final Fantasy game.



However, a sudden change in development occurred when Final Fantasy XI was released on the Xbox 360 in April 2006. Many fans were upset with Square Enix going the Xbox route, but easily forgot about the disturbance when the next game in the series, Final Fantasy XII, released exclusively on the Playstation 2 later that year.

Final Fantasy XIII, officially unveiled at E3 2006, was planned for release on Playstation 3 only. The game excited veteran fans to the series for a few reasons, better graphics and a new system to play it on. Unfortunately for Playstation owners, Microsoft announced at E3 2008, two years after the initial debut, Microsoft announced that Final Fantasy would be headed for the Xbox 360.

As we get closer to E3 2009, the expected announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3 is almost upon us, will it be on Xbox 360? If the recent events continue down the road, we may indeed be seeing an Xbox 360 version.

But with all that said, what about a Wii version?

  4. I believe they should continue the Kingdom Hearts series for the Playstation

    ReplyDelete
  5. they should sooooo make a version for the xbox, not only would big fans (like myself) be able to access it, it would also mean a huge range of people could be introduced to it; masses of people could go on without being able to experience the game, which frankly should be avoided

    ReplyDelete
  6. F*CK OFF if this goes on the 360 that would end this game

    ReplyDelete
  7. I wouldn't mind the game on Xbox but I'd prefer it to still be on Playstation 2. But if they were going to release it on the PS3, then yeah I think it would be okay to release it on 360. Or perhaps both.

  8. ps3 only this game is big and has been always on playstation why should it change now

    ReplyDelete
  15. so im guessing disney is out of the picture?

    ReplyDelete
  16. when the hell is it coming out, it was supposed to a while ago but was pushed back bc the new finalfantasy. ive seen a million trailers and i dnt kno about the rest of u guys, but i think it would really suck if sora weren't in it

    ReplyDelete
  17. yea and i dnt c how it really connects 2 the other one except the keyblades and mickey mouse

    ReplyDelete
  18. Okay to answer all your questions think about it this way... The only reason they are doing this is because of..... Wait for it.... MONEY!!!... Thats right if a corporation came to you asking to purchase the rights to a game then your tottally gonna do it... i mean ca mon who doesn't agree with me? True Kingdom hearts is great for the playstation series but yeah... not only does Microsoft/Nintendo now have the ability to sell this buy the Square Cinx corporation now gets to sell more for profit... Yeah Thats it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. In my opinion i could care less on what they sell on what system.... but... AT LEAST.... make it aligned with the series, know what im saying? not cheap knockoffs that have nothing to do with Sora/Roxas.

    ReplyDelete
  20. They can keep it on playstation.
    But they need to put it on xbox too...

    Many people can't afford playstation 3.. like myself.

    My brother has a xbox, so i could play it on there.

    and im sure a whooollleee bunch of kingdom hearts fans would agree.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Kingdom Hearts should stay play station including 2 and 3 xbox is more for online gaming in my opinion and kingdom hearts should never be an online game. but psh i dont care i just want it to be released already

    ReplyDelete
  22. people other than me realize those pictures of the people on the cover are from kingdom hearts birth by sleep right?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well It Should Realy Stay On PS3 Cause Like That Dude Said Xbox Is More For Online Gaming And NO KH Should Never Be A Online Game But I Have Waited For Along Time For The Release And Wish That FFXII Got Pushed Back Instead Of KH Dont Get Me Wrong FFXIII Is A Great Game But They Should Have Released KingdomHearts3 First

    ReplyDelete
  24. y cant they make it for all consolds ( except xbox 360 lol)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well personally all I've ever known KH to be was on the playstation and on handhelds. If they are going to make a KH3 They can put it on PS3 and for those who can't go out and buy one (myself) put it on the PS2 for them even if it means lower graphics or what not. The Xbox KH would fail and as far as the Wii that would be just too hilarious to watch people play :) I've said my peace.

    ReplyDelete
  26. People are stupid lol. Apparently saying it would fail on 360 is kinda stupid. As a PS3 owner myself, I could care less if they release it on 360 to. It'd be no different than FFXIII on 360. IT IS THE SAME GAME so if it fails on 360 it'd be a fail on PS3 as well. If anything, opening up the market to 360 would increase sales overall (which Square-Enix cares about most) and increase the chances of the series continuing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yeah im with the other Anonymous lol. yeah that is the stupidest thing every to think. the game will be the same thing think about it. its the same game and for the ppl that got a 360 rather then a xbox they can also experience one of the best games.

    ReplyDelete
  28. fuck that if they dumbed the game down enough to put on the 360 the entire series reputation would be raped

    ReplyDelete
  29. i would just be happy when the game is realesd i dont care if it comes out on xbox or playstation i just wanna play the game.

    ReplyDelete
  30. intelligent personMarch 26, 2010 at 3:27 PM

    nice try with the cover, but you misspelt "all"
    two L's
    btw who cares what station its realeased on?
    if its realeased, it will be realeased on both xbox and playstation, obviously, because that would increase the games sales and introduce xbox players to the fandom.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ok my opion is that, if ppl are asking for it to be on the 360 and on ps3, i personally think it shouldn't matter which console it's realeased on. As long as it stay to the story line, cause i mean if Square-Enix is making a profit off of the game then what does it matter what console its on. The graphics on both consoles are pretty much the same (yeah 360 might not be AS good as the ps3). But if your like me and cant afford a ps3 then i dont think that Square-Enix should favor just ONE console. Of course ppl are gonna disagree with me and i think thats fine, just remember, that just because YOU can afford a ps3 doesnt mean that everyone else can. Plus isnt the whole reason that KH is coming out is for the GAMERS enjoyment?

    ReplyDelete
  32. 360!!! I mean... come on, guys! kingdom hearts= kick ass graphics since, what, 1999... & 360= kick ass graphics ( and a strange disposition to make all the graphics on all of it's games kick ass as well). So i propose this simple equation to all of the fucking non-believers out there:

    Kick ass + kick ass x kick ass (2 x kick ass)= Fucking Awesome!

  33. oh cmmon y'all..... wherever the business goes, "business is always a business" try to think this, kingdom hearts is a game we played in a playstation and now!!!!! there gonna put it to another line or somethin. oh cmmon man!!! this isnt good... a crop of pineapples becoming a crop of beans??? huh???? put "KINGDOM HEARTS" to its proper and organize line and dn't try to be a mess.... customer dn't want a mess all ryt.....
    peace y'all

    ReplyDelete
  34. The only problem is that if it comes out on 360 it might be 2 or 3 discs long like FFXIII this is coming from someone who has FFXIII on PS3 which only uses 1 disc unlike the 360 version that uses 3 isn't it annoying looking after 3 discs and if u lose one ur totally screwed it completely messes up the gaming expirience I dont want this happening to KH3 that all I have to say

    ReplyDelete
  35. omg they need to hurry up!!!! I dont care what system it come out on I own them all!!! I just want the game

    ReplyDelete
  36. It would be cool if it was on the Xbox, but I'd also like a wii version or something, because I don't have an Xbox anything and they aren't cheap. I have almost every other KH game, I'd like to play this one too! lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. IS THIS REAL?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  38. i think a Wii version would be great! ...interesting...but great

    ReplyDelete
  39. im pretty sure this is a fake. i do believe they have yet to even come up with a kingdomhearts III idea yet. the keyblade wars is a game taking place before soras time, and the guy who you all say is roxas... is not roxas. there is a point of why he lookes just like roxas but i forgot why. all ik is that this is not kingdomhearts III. there has been absolutly no news at all on the real kingdomhearts III.

    ReplyDelete
  40. i hope caus i love KH that if there is going to be a kingdom hearts 3 because i have heard alot of rumours about it that they make a version for ps2 lol dont have a ps3 caus they suck xboxes ball sacks hahahaha lol nah i just cant be bothered to bye a playstation 3 just to play KH3 if it does come out i have a PS2 and 360 qsoooo yeah good luck square enix :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I couldnt care console it came out on. I am eagar to play it. Square Enix havent announced it yet. I do wonder when because I definitely know the series will continue onto the PS3 which is pretty obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ok.... there is suppose to be a KH3 but instead they are focusing on FF. I NEED it to be on the 360. I know that it's going to come out because, there's a secret ending at the end of KH2, so tell me why they would give us a teaser unless they're actually going to make it. Plus it's called BIRTH by sleep, not CONTINUEING by sleep. So of coures it's going to be before sora's time. What does confuse me is that why the HELL you people are fliping a BITCH about what console it comes out on. Serously if it comes down to having 3 discs, well then thats fine. Anyone who loses their discs and can't take two FUCKING seconds to put their discs back, well then they don't diserve the game.
    And that's all I have to say. Peace out girl scouts.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Except the thing is, if any of you people know anything, FFXIII came out for the 360 and had to be dumbed down because the 360 does not have the capacity to reach the PS3's graphics and play level. (not an opinion, it is a technical fact). Therefore, with FFXIII being released on the 360 the game was forced to become much more linear. For example there are no towns. You have to shop at save points. And you can't actually start doing anything else but the story till about 20 hours in. That is NOT a Final Fantasy game in the traditional sense. Now, I would really, ABSOLUTELY hate if that were to happen to Kingdom Hearts as well.

    ReplyDelete
  44. DUH!!!!!!!!!!!! this is fake..... like some other people have already said... because 1. it has birth by sleep stuff all over the cover, and pictures from the TRAILER not the game because bbs hasnt come out in english yet so all we are seeing is pictures that we have already seen on the trailer. 2. sora has the same clothes on that he had in kh 2 and obviously they change with every major game, he has different clothes in bbs, kh 1 and kh2. 3. it has been photo shopped you can tell from where ventus, aqua and terra are all standing on the front cover. and 4. they spelt ALL wrong on the back of the case... the incorect spelling is 'AL'
    so as i said earlier ... it is a fake :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. i thought so not like its bad or anything but going to wii isnt a good idea, id still play it but still not a good idea stick to playstation and possibly go to xbox for us poor people who cant pay 300 dollars for a game system, it would be nice if it went to ps2 as well but hey im not the designer its there choice i guess. anyway there might not even be a three it might just be birth by sleep. but from wat ive heard and read there will be a three, because at the end of birth by sleep it shows the cut scene from 2 but has sora looking for terra and ventus(im not completly sure if this info is reliable)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Playstation 3 needs a good game, just for ps3May 18, 2010 at 5:07 AM

    I can't remember.I thought it just ended with the intro to the second.I think they should deffinetly keep Kh3 strictly to the ps3 or ps2. The ps3 pretty much has no games that are any good or might make someone want to buy one. They got killzone 2 but that still dosent compare to the best first personal shooter of all time.....Modern Warfare and World of War but in the end I basiclly bought my ps3 just to play the old kingdom hearts games and hopefully the long awaited Kingdom hearts 3. I hope it comes out, it has too, I would be so fucken disapointed.

    ReplyDelete
  47. keep this on the playstion 3 u know how many good game the xbox360 has..... the ps3 only has god of war, unchartered and killzone....

  48. Good day to everybody that has been discussing the topic of our soon to be announced game: Kingdom Hearts III. Well, as everybody knows Final Fantasy XIII prolonged our developments into the Kingdom Heart's storyline, but we've still been working really hard at making it in a way that all gamers would enjoy! We're still debating the topic of which consoles to release it on, but we do know for sure that it will be available for the PlayStation 3 and most likely PlayStation 2; however, the idea of making one for XBox 360 seems to be a very bad idea and would most likely ruin our previous terms of keeping the game original and focused on a continuous path along the PlayStation systems. For everybody's information, we're getting much closer to completion now, and hope to announce the release within the next couple years.

    ReplyDelete
  49. kh3 is a long waiting holy grail. when its finally released it won't matter what sysytems it comes out on all us fans will still find a way to play it even if we don't have a ps3 so stop bitching about the 360

    ReplyDelete
  50. It has not only been on a Playstation platform, it has been on Gameboy Advance, like mentioned above, and also on DS. Speaking of which, they are making a seond game on the DS, a remake of Kingdom Hearts 1 with some added features, etc.
    So quit fighting over useless squabbles. I bought a PS3 just to play Kingdom Hearts 3 for whenever it came out. It would be stupid of them to release it on the PS2.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'll say it as well, just for good measure: this really is a fake; all photoshopped images.

    And for those geting confused:

    1. KH: Birth By Sleep (PSP)
    2. KH (PS2)
    3. KH: CoM (GBA)
    4. KH Re: CoM (PS2) /// KH: 358/2 Days (DS)
    5. KH2 (PS2)
    6. KH: Coded (Mobile Phone)
    7. KH Re: Coded (DS)
    ?8?. KH3D (N3DS)
    9. KH3: ?Keyblade War? (PS3; ?PS2?; ?360?
    /?/
    **********************END***********************

    That is roughly the cronilogical order for all (including upcoming) games. I say roughly because for some (i.e. KH3D) I've found barely any info on them and I also dont know where KH3D goes in the story but im almost positive its between KH2 and KH3. Lastly, Nomura stated that he knew where he wanted to go with things for KH and as we all know that last game to be announced (whether officailly or implied) was KH3 so I'm guessing thats where it ends; though I did give room for a last minute addition, after all, plans change.

    P.S. @Nomura:

    Could you possibly tell us whether you have any plans to implement the Playstation Move into KH3? That, I think, would be incredible.

    And just so its on record: I'd rather things stay on PS. PS3 really doesnt get many games for itself.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ROFL at the post by "Tetsuya Nomura." Obviously a fake.

    1. PlayStation 2 doesn't get releases anymore. It's an outdated system; everybody has SOME kind of system from this generation, whether it's Wii, 360, or PS3 (and many have two or even all three of them). Not to say the PlayStation 2 isn't still a highly regarded system, but NO publisher makes games for it anymore.

    2. NOMURA HAS SAID HIMSELF HE HASN'T EVEN STARTED KINGDOM HEARTS III YET. He said 2012 AT THE EARLIEST. It's being pushed aside so he can complete Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Honestly, 2013 is the earliest date you can expect the game. KH3D is the next major title in the series, he's said, and it's coming out on the 3DS.

    3. I'm sure everyone has to know this by now, but since so many people seem to only be paying attention to the two main installments in KH, I will make this clear: the "Keyblade Wars" is a fake. There is no game title like this. The only Keyblade Wars is in Birth by Sleep, the KH prequel that takes place 10 years before KH1 that is out on the PSP. Any dumbass who thinks KH3 is still going to be some bullshit about the Keyblade Wars needs to play Birth by Sleep to experience that. Seriously, I can't believe people posted this year thinking KH3 is going to be about the Keyblade Wars when there was so much information about the Japanese version of Birth by Sleep out already. If you don't believe me on any of this, just look it up. If you're out back enough to still think KH3 is going to be the Keyblade Wars, then certainly you can learn to use Wikipedia. Or hell, even just play Birth by Sleep yourself.
    and FYI, Birth by Sleep IS a major installment in the KH series. Chain of Memories and 358/2 Days were more side-stories/spin-offs than anything, but Birth by Sleep is definitely a major installment, featuring a new unique story, a reworked gameplay system, and even a full journal to fill out like KH1 and 2 have. (BBS even has trophies!)

    ReplyDelete
  53. (Cont. due to character restriction)

    4. UNFORTUNATELY, KH3, when it does come out in 2+ years from now, may very well be released on the 360. Square Enix is a business, after all, and their main target is getting money. Nomura said with FFVersusXIII that it is planned to be PS3 exclusive, but they make a decision afterwards by looking at the market to see if it is worth porting to the 360. This may happen with KH3 as well.
    While I agree that KH "main titles" should stay on the PS (mostly because console exclusive games just always tend to be better than multiplatform ones), the 360 is definitely an option. Either way, you can figure that it'll be developed for the PS3 and maybe ported to the 360 just like FFXIII and maybe even Versus XIII. But you can expect the 360 version to dumb it down. 20+ hours of content was removed from FF XIII to fit the 360's restrictions....what's that tell you?
    Oh, and BTW, the PS3 has several great exclusives. God of War III, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Demon's Souls are three that come to mind immediately. (Granted I am not into GoW or MGS, but I do know their popularity and how everyone else is into them.) Not to mention Versus XIII is still MOST LIKELY going to be PS3 exclusive.

    Final statements:
    Stop ignoring KH titles that are not numbered. All KH games are great games, and the spin-offs / handheld games are just as good as the two main titles, if not better.
    [Re:]CoM's card system adds so much strategy to the game and is definitely a wonderful feature, 358/2 Days features multiplayer and a very intricate plot, as well as the fun new panel system, and Birth by Sleep has more new features than I can begin to explain, as well as enough content to qualify it as a main title. The 3DS game as well will very likely be an important part of KH (again, Nomura stated it is the next major installment.............), and I figure Re:coded will be a great game as well.
    STOP BITCHING ABOUT WANTING KINGDOM HEARTS III WHEN WE'RE GETTING NEW KH GAMES EVERY YEAR THAT ARE JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER YOU UGLY SONS OF BITCHES.

  54. who gives a fuck about KH fr wii,, WHEN IS KH 3 FINALLY COMMING OUT! Goddammn

    ReplyDelete
  55. they are waiting for virtual reality to come out first. then they are going to make it. they are not in production yet. the closest thing to virtual reality is kinect and its onl for xbox. playstation needs to come out with it first.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like how people want KH3 ported to the 360 when, as said above, would ruin it. Playstation 3 discs hold almost double what Xbox 360 discs hold, and things would be cut out like in FFXIII(Sorry xbox fanboys, look it up.)

    And lmfao. Port to the ps2? Maybe four years ago. The playstation 2 is as dead as the original xbox.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I dont play xbox, but i think it would be fair to share the game with others dont you think

    ReplyDelete
  58. ALL THIS IS TRUE (The comments) I agree with all of them and it SHOULD AND CAN be released on the Wii Console! Whats wrong with Swinging your arms around acting like it is a keyblade and HAVING FUN WITH IT! You can REALLY feel like YOU ARE THE KEYBLADE WIELDER!!!!!! >:D!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    1 this is fake
    2 no one knows what it will be on because the chain of memories was on GBA then re-released on PS2 also the 358/2 is on DS so Nintendo wants in Xbox360 you all have and thats the only reason you wont it on so its Nintendo or Sony really
    3 Birth by sleep is before KH3 and has different people in it
    4 no one knows when it will be out yet or even what its called
    5 I here 2013 is the date the soonest has not even started yet, so it might be on next gen consoles, i doubt it Squire seems to hang on to a system almost to long we have BBS so play that now
    6 PS2 no way old and out they are not going back words they are re-releasing games on newer systems, i know PS2 was number 1 selling consoles but its time to upgrade

  61. Sry guys but.... Omg how can u call yourself a kh fan if u dont know BBS and the name of the guy that looks like Roxas is ventus the girl is aqua and the orther Guy is Terra. And plz stop asking for kh3 and play orther kh games you'll see that there is not only 2 main kh (i rly think that kh3 should be on PS3 )

Well It Should Realy Stay On PS3 Cause Like That Dude Said Xbox Is More For Online Gaming And NO KH Should Never Be A Online Game But I Have Waited For Along Time For The Release And Wish That FFXII Got Pushed Back Instead Of KH Dont Get Me Wrong FFXIII Is A Great Game But They Should Have Released KingdomHearts3 First

  24. y cant they make it for all consolds ( except xbox 360 lol)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well personally all I've ever known KH to be was on the playstation and on handhelds. If they are going to make a KH3 They can put it on PS3 and for those who can't go out and buy one (myself) put it on the PS2 for them even if it means lower graphics or what not. The Xbox KH would fail and as far as the Wii that would be just too hilarious to watch people play :) I've said my peace.

    ReplyDelete
  26. People are stupid lol. Apparently saying it would fail on 360 is kinda stupid. As a PS3 owner myself, I could care less if they release it on 360 to. It'd be no different than FFXIII on 360. IT IS THE SAME GAME so if it fails on 360 it'd be a fail on PS3 as well. If anything, opening up the market to 360 would increase sales overall (which Square-Enix cares about most) and increase the chances of the series continuing.

  27. Yeah im with the other Anonymous lol. yeah that is the stupidest thing every to think. the game will be the same thing think about it. its the same game and for the ppl that got a 360 rather then a xbox they can also experience one of the best games.

    ReplyDelete
  28. fuck that if they dumbed the game down enough to put on the 360 the entire series reputation would be raped

    nice try with the cover, but you misspelt "all"
    two L's
    btw who cares what station its realeased on?
    if its realeased, it will be realeased on both xbox and playstation, obviously, because that would increase the games sales and introduce xbox players to the fandom.

    ReplyDelete
  31. ok my opion is that, if ppl are asking for it to be on the 360 and on ps3, i personally think it shouldn't matter which console it's realeased on. As long as it stay to the story line, cause i mean if Square-Enix is making a profit off of the game then what does it matter what console its on. The graphics on both consoles are pretty much the same (yeah 360 might not be AS good as the ps3). But if your like me and cant afford a ps3 then i dont think that Square-Enix should favor just ONE console. Of course ppl are gonna disagree with me and i think thats fine, just remember, that just because YOU can afford a ps3 doesnt mean that everyone else can. Plus isnt the whole reason that KH is coming out is for the GAMERS enjoyment?

  32. 360!!! I mean... come on, guys! kingdom hearts= kick ass graphics since, what, 1999... & 360= kick ass graphics ( and a strange disposition to make all the graphics on all of it's games kick ass as well). So i propose this simple equation to all of the fucking non-believers out there:

    Kick ass + kick ass x kick ass (2 x kick ass)= Fucking Awesome!

  34. The only problem is that if it comes out on 360 it might be 2 or 3 discs long like FFXIII this is coming from someone who has FFXIII on PS3 which only uses 1 disc unlike the 360 version that uses 3 isn't it annoying looking after 3 discs and if u lose one ur totally screwed it completely messes up the gaming expirience I dont want this happening to KH3 that all I have to say

    ReplyDelete
  35. omg they need to hurry up!!!! I dont care what system it come out on I own them all!!! I just want the game

    ReplyDelete
  36. It would be cool if it was on the Xbox, but I'd also like a wii version or something, because I don't have an Xbox anything and they aren't cheap. I have almost every other KH game, I'd like to play this one too! lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. IS THIS REAL?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  38. i think a Wii version would be great! ...interesting...but great

    ReplyDelete
  39. im pretty sure this is a fake. i do believe they have yet to even come up with a kingdomhearts III idea yet. the keyblade wars is a game taking place before soras time, and the guy who you all say is roxas... is not roxas. there is a point of why he lookes just like roxas but i forgot why. all ik is that this is not kingdomhearts III. there has been absolutly no news at all on the real kingdomhearts III.

    ReplyDelete
  40. i hope caus i love KH that if there is going to be a kingdom hearts 3 because i have heard alot of rumours about it that they make a version for ps2 lol dont have a ps3 caus they suck xboxes ball sacks hahahaha lol nah i just cant be bothered to bye a playstation 3 just to play KH3 if it does come out i have a PS2 and 360 qsoooo yeah good luck square enix :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I couldnt care console it came out on. I am eagar to play it. Square Enix havent announced it yet. I do wonder when because I definitely know the series will continue onto the PS3 which is pretty obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ok.... there is suppose to be a KH3 but instead they are focusing on FF. I NEED it to be on the 360. I know that it's going to come out because, there's a secret ending at the end of KH2, so tell me why they would give us a teaser unless they're actually going to make it. Plus it's called BIRTH by sleep, not CONTINUEING by sleep. So of coures it's going to be before sora's time. What does confuse me is that why the HELL you people are fliping a BITCH about what console it comes out on. Serously if it comes down to having 3 discs, well then thats fine. Anyone who loses their discs and can't take two FUCKING seconds to put their discs back, well then they don't diserve the game.
    And that's all I have to say. Peace out girl scouts.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Except the thing is, if any of you people know anything, FFXIII came out for the 360 and had to be dumbed down because the 360 does not have the capacity to reach the PS3's graphics and play level. (not an opinion, it is a technical fact). Therefore, with FFXIII being released on the 360 the game was forced to become much more linear. For example there are no towns. You have to shop at save points. And you can't actually start doing anything else but the story till about 20 hours in. That is NOT a Final Fantasy game in the traditional sense. Now, I would really, ABSOLUTELY hate if that were to happen to Kingdom Hearts as well.

  44. DUH!!!!!!!!!!!! this is fake..... like some other people have already said... because 1. it has birth by sleep stuff all over the cover, and pictures from the TRAILER not the game because bbs hasnt come out in english yet so all we are seeing is pictures that we have already seen on the trailer. 2. sora has the same clothes on that he had in kh 2 and obviously they change with every major game, he has different clothes in bbs, kh 1 and kh2. 3. it has been photo shopped you can tell from where ventus, aqua and terra are all standing on the front cover. and 4. they spelt ALL wrong on the back of the case... the incorect spelling is 'AL'
    so as i said earlier ... it is a fake :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. i thought so not like its bad or anything but going to wii isnt a good idea, id still play it but still not a good idea stick to playstation and possibly go to xbox for us poor people who cant pay 300 dollars for a game system, it would be nice if it went to ps2 as well but hey im not the designer its there choice i guess. anyway there might not even be a three it might just be birth by sleep. but from wat ive heard and read there will be a three, because at the end of birth by sleep it shows the cut scene from 2 but has sora looking for terra and ventus(im not completly sure if this info is reliable)

  46. Playstation 3 needs a good game, just for ps3May 18, 2010 at 5:07 AM

    I can't remember.I thought it just ended with the intro to the second.I think they should deffinetly keep Kh3 strictly to the ps3 or ps2. The ps3 pretty much has no games that are any good or might make someone want to buy one. They got killzone 2 but that still dosent compare to the best first personal shooter of all time.....Modern Warfare and World of War but in the end I basiclly bought my ps3 just to play the old kingdom hearts games and hopefully the long awaited Kingdom hearts 3. I hope it comes out, it has too, I would be so fucken disapointed.

    ReplyDelete
  47. keep this on the playstion 3 u know how many good game the xbox360 has..... the ps3 only has god of war, unchartered and killzone....

  48. Good day to everybody that has been discussing the topic of our soon to be announced game: Kingdom Hearts III. Well, as everybody knows Final Fantasy XIII prolonged our developments into the Kingdom Heart's storyline, but we've still been working really hard at making it in a way that all gamers would enjoy! We're still debating the topic of which consoles to release it on, but we do know for sure that it will be available for the PlayStation 3 and most likely PlayStation 2; however, the idea of making one for XBox 360 seems to be a very bad idea and would most likely ruin our previous terms of keeping the game original and focused on a continuous path along the PlayStation systems. For everybody's information, we're getting much closer to completion now, and hope to announce the release within the next couple years.

    ReplyDelete
  49. kh3 is a long waiting holy grail. when its finally released it won't matter what sysytems it comes out on all us fans will still find a way to play it even if we don't have a ps3 so stop bitching about the 360

    ReplyDelete
  50. It has not only been on a Playstation platform, it has been on Gameboy Advance, like mentioned above, and also on DS. Speaking of which, they are making a seond game on the DS, a remake of Kingdom Hearts 1 with some added features, etc.
    So quit fighting over useless squabbles. I bought a PS3 just to play Kingdom Hearts 3 for whenever it came out. It would be stupid of them to release it on the PS2.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'll say it as well, just for good measure: this really is a fake; all photoshopped images.

    And for those geting confused:

    1. KH: Birth By Sleep (PSP)
    2. KH (PS2)
    3. KH: CoM (GBA)
    4. KH Re: CoM (PS2) /// KH: 358/2 Days (DS)
    5. KH2 (PS2)
    6. KH: Coded (Mobile Phone)
    7. KH Re: Coded (DS)
    ?8?. KH3D (N3DS)
    9. KH3: ?Keyblade War? (PS3; ?PS2?; ?360?
    /?/
    **********************END***********************

    That is roughly the cronilogical order for all (including upcoming) games. I say roughly because for some (i.e. KH3D) I've found barely any info on them and I also dont know where KH3D goes in the story but im almost positive its between KH2 and KH3. Lastly, Nomura stated that he knew where he wanted to go with things for KH and as we all know that last game to be announced (whether officailly or implied) was KH3 so I'm guessing thats where it ends; though I did give room for a last minute addition, after all, plans change.

    P.S. @Nomura:

    Could you possibly tell us whether you have any plans to implement the Playstation Move into KH3? That, I think, would be incredible.

    And just so its on record: I'd rather things stay on PS. PS3 really doesnt get many games for itself.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ROFL at the post by "Tetsuya Nomura." Obviously a fake.

    1. PlayStation 2 doesn't get releases anymore. It's an outdated system; everybody has SOME kind of system from this generation, whether it's Wii, 360, or PS3 (and many have two or even all three of them). Not to say the PlayStation 2 isn't still a highly regarded system, but NO publisher makes games for it anymore.

    2. NOMURA HAS SAID HIMSELF HE HASN'T EVEN STARTED KINGDOM HEARTS III YET. He said 2012 AT THE EARLIEST. It's being pushed aside so he can complete Final Fantasy Versus XIII. Honestly, 2013 is the earliest date you can expect the game. KH3D is the next major title in the series, he's said, and it's coming out on the 3DS.

    3. I'm sure everyone has to know this by now, but since so many people seem to only be paying attention to the two main installments in KH, I will make this clear: the "Keyblade Wars" is a fake. There is no game title like this. The only Keyblade Wars is in Birth by Sleep, the KH prequel that takes place 10 years before KH1 that is out on the PSP. Any dumbass who thinks KH3 is still going to be some bullshit about the Keyblade Wars needs to play Birth by Sleep to experience that. Seriously, I can't believe people posted this year thinking KH3 is going to be about the Keyblade Wars when there was so much information about the Japanese version of Birth by Sleep out already. If you don't believe me on any of this, just look it up. If you're out back enough to still think KH3 is going to be the Keyblade Wars, then certainly you can learn to use Wikipedia. Or hell, even just play Birth by Sleep yourself.
    and FYI, Birth by Sleep IS a major installment in the KH series. Chain of Memories and 358/2 Days were more side-stories/spin-offs than anything, but Birth by Sleep is definitely a major installment, featuring a new unique story, a reworked gameplay system, and even a full journal to fill out like KH1 and 2 have. (BBS even has trophies!)

  53. (Cont. due to character restriction)

    4. UNFORTUNATELY, KH3, when it does come out in 2+ years from now, may very well be released on the 360. Square Enix is a business, after all, and their main target is getting money. Nomura said with FFVersusXIII that it is planned to be PS3 exclusive, but they make a decision afterwards by looking at the market to see if it is worth porting to the 360. This may happen with KH3 as well.
    While I agree that KH "main titles" should stay on the PS (mostly because console exclusive games just always tend to be better than multiplatform ones), the 360 is definitely an option. Either way, you can figure that it'll be developed for the PS3 and maybe ported to the 360 just like FFXIII and maybe even Versus XIII. But you can expect the 360 version to dumb it down. 20+ hours of content was removed from FF XIII to fit the 360's restrictions....what's that tell you?
    Oh, and BTW, the PS3 has several great exclusives. God of War III, Metal Gear Solid 4, and Demon's Souls are three that come to mind immediately. (Granted I am not into GoW or MGS, but I do know their popularity and how everyone else is into them.) Not to mention Versus XIII is still MOST LIKELY going to be PS3 exclusive.

    Final statements:
    Stop ignoring KH titles that are not numbered. All KH games are great games, and the spin-offs / handheld games are just as good as the two main titles, if not better.
    [Re:]CoM's card system adds so much strategy to the game and is definitely a wonderful feature, 358/2 Days features multiplayer and a very intricate plot, as well as the fun new panel system, and Birth by Sleep has more new features than I can begin to explain, as well as enough content to qualify it as a main title. The 3DS game as well will very likely be an important part of KH (again, Nomura stated it is the next major installment.............), and I figure Re:coded will be a great game as well.
    STOP BITCHING ABOUT WANTING KINGDOM HEARTS III WHEN WE'RE GETTING NEW KH GAMES EVERY YEAR THAT ARE JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER YOU UGLY SONS OF BITCHES.

  55. they are waiting for virtual reality to come out first. then they are going to make it. they are not in production yet. the closest thing to virtual reality is kinect and its onl for xbox. playstation needs to come out with it first.

  56. I like how people want KH3 ported to the 360 when, as said above, would ruin it. Playstation 3 discs hold almost double what Xbox 360 discs hold, and things would be cut out like in FFXIII(Sorry xbox fanboys, look it up.)

    And lmfao. Port to the ps2? Maybe four years ago. The playstation 2 is as dead as the original xbox.

  57. I dont play xbox, but i think it would be fair to share the game with others dont you think

  58. ALL THIS IS TRUE (The comments) I agree with all of them and it SHOULD AND CAN be released on the Wii Console! Whats wrong with Swinging your arms around acting like it is a keyblade and HAVING FUN WITH IT! You can REALLY feel like YOU ARE THE KEYBLADE WIELDER!!!!!! >:D!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1 this is fake
    2 no one knows what it will be on because the chain of memories was on GBA then re-released on PS2 also the 358/2 is on DS so Nintendo wants in Xbox360 you all have and thats the only reason you wont it on so its Nintendo or Sony really
    3 Birth by sleep is before KH3 and has different people in it
    4 no one knows when it will be out yet or even what its called
    5 I here 2013 is the date the soonest has not even started yet, so it might be on next gen consoles, i doubt it Squire seems to hang on to a system almost to long we have BBS so play that now
    6 PS2 no way old and out they are not going back words they are re-releasing games on newer systems, i know PS2 was number 1 selling consoles but its time to upgrade
