Destroy All Humans! (Minus Bender)

Videogame publisher THQ has taken what I hope is the first step in a trend that could play well for consumers as well as for console makers with the announcements of their new Destroy All Humans! games coming for the PS3, Xbox360, Wii, and PSP in late '07 and early '08.  What they have done is actually take the franchise in two seperate directions in regards to what system they are going for to maximize the use of each systems strengths and to limit the weakneses by not trying to force one game to all of the platforms.  The PS3 and Xbox360 version is entitled "Destroy All Humans!: Path of the Furon" while the PSP and Wii versions will be "Destroy All Humans!: Big Willy Unleashed".  From what I have seen so far, the Wii/PSP version actually takes place in the 1970's just before the PS3/360 edition's events occur.  So if you have the option of playing the Wii version (it is available for the PSP, but was developed with the Wii in mind for controls) as well as one of the others on the PS3/360, you will actually get the entire story, but both will be playable without the others if you had to make a single choice this generation.
