Epic Mickey A Possibility On PS3

Speaking to Gamasutra at the DICE Summit in Las Vegas, Disney has admitted there is still a chance its Warren Spector produced Epic Mickey could make a move to next-gen consoles when the PS3 and Xbox 360 both launch their own motion control devices later this year. Epic Mickey, starring the face of Disney himself Mickey Mouse, is currently a Wii exclusive title focusing as it does on a paint brush mechanic.

We wouldn’t normally get all excited about a Mickey Mouse game, but there’s been a lot of positive buzz about this one. It’s creator Spector may have something to do with that given his gaming past, which includes such favourites as Wing Commander, Ultima, System Shock, Thief and Deus Ex.

Anyway, Disney admitted that if it had started on the game only recently it might not have been such an easy call to make it a Wii exclusive. “If we started it 6 months ago we would have potentially thought differently about it,” Graham Hopper, executive vice president and general manager of Disney Interactive Studios explained.

DIS president Steve Wadsworth added: “We have a very large audience base that has Wiis in their homeā€¦ That’s not to say that we won’t go to other platforms [in the future].”
