    Kingdom Hearts Series Ships Over 10 Million Worldwide

    LOS ANGELES, Feb 05, 2007 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of Square Enix(TM) interactive entertainment products in North America, and Buena Vista Games, Inc. (BVG), the interactive entertainment affiliate of The Walt Disney Company, announced today that their KINGDOM HEARTS series of action role-playing games has shipped more than 10 million units worldwide, making it one of the top game series in the world. Released to chart-topping sales in 2006, KINGDOM HEARTS II is the sequel to KINGDOM HEARTS, one of the top ten best-selling PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system titles of all time in North America (Source: The NPD Group, March 2006).

    If it is one of the top selling game series in the world, and it only has three games out... wow. That's impressive.

    I can't get enough of KingDom hearts. I am just sad that the next game will only be for the ps3, but I will probably go out of my way for a ps3 just to play kingdom hearts.

    ^ don't stress yet. as i understand it, square enix and disney have yet to finalize where the game is going to go. with the fact that sales of the ps3 are abyssmal, and the sales for the wii are fantastic, i have a strong feeling that the game will be launched on all consoles.

    so, don't worry yet.

    Eagerly anticipating the PC launch. I haven't used a console since the Intellivision/Atari 2600 wars of the 80's.
