Spanish language gaming site PSNow.es has played on its readers what can be described as a practical joke that no one thinks is funny; cruel even. Earlier today, they claimed that the recently released and well received Wii exclusive Epic Mickey would be coming to the PS3 next year utilizing the PlayStation Move to integrate the controls from the Wii version of the game. They have recently updated their post with the following message:
Logically, we would have loved to announce the world premiere of Mickey Epic launch on PlayStation 3, but that time may not be today. All efforts have been made a joke that we hope will become a sweet reality if ever this rumor is confirmed.
So, in case you had heard otherwise, there is currently no confirmation that the game will make its way to the PS3. Do I find this funny? Not really. Do I think the uproar it caused may grab the publisher’s attention? Perhaps. Until further notice, Epic Mickey is available exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
