It's not exactly a big secret I try to follow any discussions around the internet involving Scribblenauts. One site in particular, Twitter, allows me to follow both gamers and game journalists alike. Indeed, if you haven't already, you should follow me on Twitter right here ;)
Lately I've been noticing a trend: people are already calling for a port of the game. It surprises me the amount of people who seem to say, "I hope they bring it to _________ because I don't want to shell out the money for a DS!" The most common desire is an iPhone port, though a PC port is a close 2nd. Some even want to see it as an XBLA game, though I wonder just how well that would work.
On the opposite side of the fence are people claiming they're buying a DS JUST for this game. This is quite impressive given Scribblenauts is 3rd party. Typically it's the 1st party exclusive games that push actual systems. Further, the DS has been around for a long time and has an insane install base. The fact Scribblenauts can push even deeper is something Nintendo should be very aware of.
So my question is this: Let's pretend you don't have a DS (and if you don't, then you're already done!). Would Scribblenauts convince you enough to buy a $100+ DS? Would you hold out until you knew of other games you might like? Are you more likely to wait for the game to come out on a console you already own?
This is just an informal brain picking so feel free to just leave some comments at the end of this post.
