  • KingOptimus101

    I can’t wait till Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Volume 2 come out for PS Vita so people can stop talking about kingdom hearts 3DS.

    • FaithlessMr

      Hmmm….why does it bother you so much that people talk about KH 3D, if you don’t mind the question?

      Isn’t it a KH game like any other? Does the console it was made for matters that much?

      • anime10121

        @FaithlessMr: Seems to me he’s a kid who is either a graphics whore, or a Sony fanboy that thinks any KH for Nintendo consoles are spinoffs (Chain of Memories and 3D are not). I will admit that I prefer Sony consoles myself, but I will buy any system that has the games I want (i.e. any console with KH on it {I own damn near EVERY console :P}).

        • FaithlessMr

          Nothing wrong with liking a console over another in my book, but…I think that really shouldn’t get in the way of appreciating games for what they are.

    @anime10121 @FaithlessMr

    Keep cryibg, Im just sick of the attention towards the 3DS Im not a kid and its not far birth by sleep didn’t get this much attention. I believe the I like kingdom hearts 3DS but the real kingdom heart fan base is on playstation.

      I meant to say:

      Keep crying, Im just sick of the attention towards the 3DS Im not a kid and its not fair birth by sleep didn’t get this much attention. I like kingdom hearts 3DS but the real kingdom heart fan base is on playstation and square enix knows it. Why you think Nomura is holding Versus XIII, its to prevent Kingdom Hearts 3 from releasing on WII U when the next playstation is going to be more powerful.

      • FaithlessMr

        Hmmm, it would seem to me I am not the one “crying” here, since I wasn’t the one who complained about KH DDD being on a system that doesn’t have the Sony brand on it.

        Like I said before, nothing wrong with prefering a brand (I used to like Sony a whole lot, and I still do, just not as much as I did before but whatevs), and yet I think we shouldn’t let that get in the way to enjoy good games, no matter the platform they are released on.

        Honestly, I think BBS had as much attention as this one did, and as any other KH game did. Putting it bluntly, I think you just think this one is getting “more attention than BBS” because it’s on a console you dislike, and thus, everything about it makes this situation more obvious and unconfortable for you. It’s a popular game from a popular franchise that gets attention as any other KH did.

      • anime10121

        @KingOptimus101: Yeah says the guy who’s crying for a game that’s completely unconfirmed on a system that has no guarantee of receiving a Kingdom Hearts. Basically, Square Enix has never confirmed that BBS Vol. 2 is even a game or for the Vita for that matter. Oh and to add to that, BBS was hyped this much before release, it just didnt end up selling as much in America because unfortunately the PSP is overrun with pirates.

        And also If you’re referring to all the parties and celebrations this game is getting, its because BBS was not an anniversary title. This game is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the entire series.

        EDIT: Another thing, The real Kingdom Hearts Fanbase is on whatever system the games are on. As I said I prefer Sony consoles myself but I own a DS, 3DS, GBA, PS1-3, PSP, and Wii (used to have a 360 b4 it died). Just because the system started on Playstation does not mean that the series is or should be exclusive to Sony. I am hoping that KH3 is released on PS3 but I will gladly buy a WiiU if it is released for that system.

      @KingOptimus101: Yeah I dont get why BBS didnt get this much attention,it was great!

  • KingOptimus101

    @anime10121 @FaithlessMr
    First of all I said I liked Kingdom Hearts DDD. Im just saying Kingdom Hearts BBS didn’t get as much attention as Dream Drop Distance.

    Second of all despite Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Volume 2 not being confirmed if you look at the ending of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep Final Mix its pretty much hints at a sequel and theres a lot news articles saying that on the internet (just google it) you can tell by the ending that the developers are making the sequel and is pretty much coming to Playstation Vita at this point.

    Third and Last of all let me ask you this why would you want Kingdom Hearts III on the WII U? Heres why I believe kingdom Hearts III will be on the next playstation as a exclusive because all the major Kingdom Hearts games have been on playstation. Birth By Sleep was a prequel to the whole Kingdom Hearts series. Kingdom Hearts I & II was exclusive to PS2 and are the major two stories to Kingdom Hearts Series. Square Enix has always use nintendo as just the bridge in the gap for Kingdom Hearts series while they have put the major Kingdom Hearts game on playstation and Kingdom Hearts III will be no different. Then you can easily see Nomura is holding Versus XIII because just like Versus XIII, he probably wants to put everything into Kingdom Hearts III and make it massive. Now why would he want to put it on WII U when the WII U is just now getting on the this gen and the next playstation and xbox will be here either 2013 or 2014 and we all know Kingdom Hearts won’t be on xbox becuase its only for SHOOTERS!!!!!
