Oh Mega Man, you so handsome!
When Mega Man 9 was a WiiWare exclusive for about 7 minutes, it was pretty exciting for Wii owners. It was like.. WOW, we are getting a REAL game that non-wii owners may be jealous of! What a FIRST! But then, Capcom DID do the right thing and declared Mega Man 9 will be downloadable on all 3 consoles.
This is not what bothers me. I think that it's smart to do that.
What bothers me is that, I don't think people (whom are multi-console owners) will download it on the Wii. Now this is NOT a "OMG SUPPORT THE Wii" blog post. Not at all. In fact, I have started to understand some of the hate the Wii gets..but that's a whole other blog one day.
This is an 8 bit game, so this game is going to look exactly
the same on all 3 consoles..despite what ANY fanboy is going to say, but you know what? The WiiWare version of this game IS indeed going to be the superior version and I don't think anyone will recognize it. Why? The controls. Not only is Mega Man 9 coming out as an 8 bit game that's 100% fan service, but using the Wii remote as an NES style controller IS what's going to be icing on the cake. Sure, the 360 version will have achievements..and I am not sure if the PSN version will have trophies, but this game is going to feel awkward as all hell playing with the D-Pad on the 360 controller. I don't own a PS3 so I can't comment on that.
So what do you think? If you are a multi-console owner who is indeed getting Mega Man 9, what version will you be picking up and why? I especially want to know why you would choose another version over the Wii version. Are achievements more important then having good, classic controls? Or will the controls be the deciding factor for you?
