This more so applies to Wii U owners but we see that many games gets ported to certain systems but gets ignored for other systems. One of these reasons is that the developer/publisher feel that the game wouldn't see well on the other system and don't see the point of taking time and money to develop for the said system

So my question to you is would developers setting up kick starters help bring ports to other systems? For instance a game like Destiny which is being put on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One would help from fans and potential buyers to bring a port of it to PC or Wii U. Both PC or Wii U are capable of running the game but the cost of development would not be worth it in the long run. What do you think?

Maybe. Assuming its that easy (which i doubt) I guess it could work since most times developers just don't want to waste resources because the port doesn't seem like it will earn back a profit.

No

Reason: lack of license

We are just consumers, and thu we can't just decide for franchises we do not own. That said, the devs themselves could try to see the percentage of people interested (and willin to buy).
