Epic Mickey, a game that seemed to be one of the Wii's biggest showcases at E3 this year, may be going multi-platform thanks to the release of the PlayStation Move and Xbox 360 Kinect.
Nintendo devoted a lot of time to Epic Mickey at its E3 press conference, and kind of showed it off as an "only possible on Wii" kind of title. But now, it seems that's not really the case.

"Before Move and Kinect I probably would have said no, because the game is built around gesturing. Now, however, there's no reason technologically why we couldn't," said the head of the game's development studio Warren Spector in an interview with Atomic Gamer.

At this point, that is just a flippant remark. However, it does go to show that the Wii may be turning into less of a differentiating console. There could well be a lot more cross-platform between the Wii and the PS3/360. There is definitely a partition in front of the Wii at the moment, but that's what Move and Kinect might change.

However, that's not necessarily what Microsoft or Sony is going for. They want to be unique too, but the question is whether or not gamers - and game developers - will feel the same way. Spector's comments seem to suggest that they don't really see a difference.
