No Castlevania For The Playstation 3?

In a somewhat surprising move, Castlevania creator Koji Igarashi has revealed that he's favouring the Xbox 360 for the next installment in the series.

Apparently, the US market is still the strongest for the Castlevania games, and the Xbox 360 is, of course WHIPPING (see what I did there?) the Playstation 3 in the States. The Wii is not to be completely disregarded, but Igarashi comments that he feels third party games don't fare too well on the console, compared to Nintendo's offerings. While he has a point, maybe a good third-party game WOULD actually sell, rather than the half-arsed ports that most developers are currently churning out for Nintendo's system.

Igarashi also commented on the new DS offering for the Castlevania series. It will not be a port of Dracula X, like the PSP is receiving, but hopefully a new adventure. While I'm happy about this, I also REALLY want to play Dracula X. Looks like I'll be buying that PSP Slim...
