Epic Mickey will “ultimately come to PS3” says Pachter

Industry analyst Michael Pachter has gone on the record to say that Epic Mickey, previously a Wii exclusive title, will almost certainly be heading to PS3, as a prime release for Playstation Move.

Elaborating on the subject during his weekly Gametrailers show ‘Pach-Attack!’, the Webush analyst claimed that a PS3 port of the colourful title is inevitable, although creating a port would not be easy.

“I’m sure Sony is talking to them right now, the problem is upscaling Epic Mickey because it’s not made in 1080p, it’s made for the Wii so I’m not sure they can go ahead and port the game,” said Pachter. “I think a lot of the gameplay mechanics would work but they’re going to have to build it from the ground up to make it work on PS3.”

Pachter also suggested that Junction Point, the studio responsible for the game, should release Spector’s latest as a downloadable title on PSN.

“It will ultimately come there. Maybe they’ll do it as a Playstation Network game for a lot less money but they’ll have to wait a few years until the Wii version runs its course to get away with lower graphics.”
