I think at this point Nintendo has just trolled Sony with this 3 year deal.

Good on you, Nintendo!

I hope this isn't true, but considering how Sony hasn't even mentioned Monster Hunter is coming at all......

So what about the fans that brought this game to where it is i.e. the sony commumity im not a fan boy and i do love MH but im never picking up a console whether it be handheld or not just for one game. Capcom have basically put 2 fingers up to the original community that brought this game to where it is. As for nintendo this is a good business decision but a bad one at the same time because now sony know what theyre playing at.

Capcom doesn't give a fk about their fans. I mean, just look at all the on-disc DLC, Megaman, DmC, Resident Evil, the roster of UMvC3....

I get why the vita owners want the game but sony has been getting there fare share of exclusoves and still do. Now you see how nintendo fans feel.
SirBradders  +   640d ago
But sony make most of their exclusives just like nintendo do and for capcom to do this is basically them slapping their original fanbase which is multi millions of fans who brought the game to life. It really shocks me seeing companies using their fans as pieces of meat. And from a business point getting monster hunter early on the vita would mean developing times would be cut in the future when bringing out sequels because the vita will pick up theres no doubt.

If you are a Nintendo fan .. Thread is totally different in terms of exclusive games .. We are talking about companies and studios owned by Sony and not Third party companies , Nintendo on the other side has some companies and studios, but unfortunately they do not exploit their presence and expertise however they have some exclusives from third-party companies that is not originally owned by Nintendo ( What I mean is those games that first appeared in the device itself ) .. If we back to history since pre-emergence of the 3D Graphics of gaming and search for some excuses from the past in order to Prove the situation it wont change anything till this day .. Technological advances necessitates to the success of the parent device.

In short companies covet to search for profits by any means even if it sacrificed its fanbase and that's what really bothers me in the gaming industry these days .

Capcom thinks that just because the install base of the 3DS is higher that the game will sell better there. But what about when it was on the PSP vs DS? To this date all the highest selling Monster Hunter games have been on the PsP and it makes sense since it has to compete against less games.

I really dont think that MH being exclusive on 3ds has anything to do with the install base. I remember when monster hunter was released on the 360 and not on the ps3. I think that a contract was made between nintendo and capcom in which sony just choose not to match/bid. Sony once stated that they refuse to buy 3rd party exclusivity and thats exactly what capcom probably wanted.
arbitor365  +   640d ago
i think this series is really being squandered with nintendo. monster hunter tri would have been much better if it had been on the PS3 and any monster hunter game on the 3ds would be better on the vita.
RuperttheBear  +   640d ago
Any exclusive game released on ps3 and Vita would be better on pc, but it doesn't happen and I'm not complaining.

How would it have been better? Graphics??????????????? Oh my god the GRAPHICS!!!!!!!!!
arbitor365  +   639d ago
actually the controls. the biggest problem with monster hunter tri on the wii, was the motion controls. I owned the game, so I experienced it first hand.

also, since the vita has a second analog stick, it would allow better camera movement and better movement in general, since analog sticks are always better than slide pads
izumo_lee  +   640d ago
It's not a total lost that there is no MH game on the Vita. Sure it would have helped a lot for the install base in Japan but it is not the end of the world just cause there will not be a MH game for 3 years.

The Vita is getting some very high quality alternatives to MH like Ragnarok Oddessey, Soul Sacrifice, Phantasy Star Online 2, & the extremely underrated Gods Eater 2.

Also if there will be a MH game on the Vita i rather have a game that takes advantage of the Vita hardware. A port of the 3DS version defeats the purpose.
profgerbik  +   640d ago
Yep it's real annoying how people act as if the Vita is getting no good games.

All those games you mentioned might possibly even be better than Monster Hunter for many, PSO 2 and Soul Sacrifice are already looking more appealing to me personally. I love the new approach PSO took.

Just the fact the PS Vita has more monster hunting games than the 3DS in it's first year is already promising enough for me even if we never see Monster Hunter period..

It's Capcom's loss, just would have been extra money no doubt about that. They aren't going to lose on a game everyone practically talks about and begs for. It's insane they assume it won't sell well on any system. People buy Monster Hunter for the game, not what system it's on.

I could bet close to every single person who owned a PS Vita would be buying it for theirs if it did release for it but oh well.

I agree. Games like Phantasy Online 2, Gods Eater 2 & Soul Sacrifice seem to be more ambitious in terms of game play. MH4 other than some minor changes (new weapons, assist creatures,etc.) is more of the same.

Look PO2 for the Vita lets you play with people on the PC! That is such an awesome way to play the game. Soul Sacrifice is from the mind of Keiji Inafune, say what you want about the guy he is a brilliant game designer & i look forward to his game. Gods Eater 2 is what i look forward to the most. I loved the first game cause the story is so interesting & the characters are likable (especially Alisa for me personally!).

So yeah like i said it's not the end of the world that there is not MH. It will come to the Vita eventually it is almost guaranteed, so let the 3DS have it for now. I'll be playing better alternatives.
refocusedman  +   640d ago
Its not just about good games, It abt games that sell software and move systems and thats what monster hunter is. Its like CoD being exclusive to the 360 in the US for 3 years. That would be devastating for the playstation brand. Its not Capcoms loss because if they were at any risk at incurring a loss, they would not even hesitate on bringing it to the Vita. Have we forgotten how greedy capcom is ( on disc dlc anyone, or 10 dollar alternate costume packs). The fact is that we as Vita adapters lose out because its one less quality game that we dont have and MH sells hardware, and more unit sold = more developers creating software.
RogueStatus28  +   640d ago
3DS will be getting better alternatives as well such as Soul Hackers, Fire Emblem Awakening, Bravely Default, and Etrian Odyssey IV.
Cyrax4  +   640d ago
RIP Vita.

Lol at anyone who was dumb enough to buy one.

3rd parties have completely shunned the Vita because they knew it had no hope. How Sony didn't realize this is puzzling. If they screwed up the Vita so bad, what makes you think they won't do the same for the PS4?

Yes because Monster Hunter is the holy grail of gaming.

To tell you the truth I'd rather have a new Pokemon game than a Monster Hunter game...

Luckily I have BOTH the 3DS and the Vita.

Japan is not the world, just like people say USA is not the world, many people here just either don't care/never heard of Monster Hunter, a LOT of people here would much rather prefer a new God of War portable.

I'll get Monster Hunter on my 3DS when it comes out though, because I'm one of those who does know and cares about Monster Hunter, but believe me a lot more people don't here.

True that. I own a 3DS and very recently a Vita.

Probably gonna get Monster Hunter 4 day one, very excited but it's amazing how many fanboys this exclusivity bring's out.

So many 3DS fanboys pounding their chests, how many people here are actually gonna buy it?
GuruStarr78  +   640d ago
I know mh is a system seller, and I own both 3ds and vita, but c'mon... mh games are lame..
profgerbik  +   640d ago
I get this game is fun, I get people want it on the Vita but acting like it's the only game that would ever be worth playing on the Vita is just retarded already..

I am sure it offends other fans just the same if someone said all there is to play on the 3DS is Zelda. Both aren't true, even the 3DS would do fine without having Monster Hunter around.

Monster Hunter is not keeping consoles and handheld gaming alive, acting as if it is seems a little bit ridiculous for sure. You know there was a time where Monster Hunter didn't even exist, consoles and handhelds did fine then without it also.

BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   640d ago
Could care less if MH never comes to the vita. I only care that we get a new MH game on a next gen console. I'm a big fan of MH and I look forward to that day. As far as it being released on vita, I prefer devs focus on delivering games that I can't play on PS3. The vita IMO needs to bring fresh gaming experiences (like gravity rush) not scaled back ports of uncharted, killzone, cod, etc.

Now i'm asking a serious question here, i have no idea. So don't shoot me down. Is the Vita actually quite popular in the USA or something?

I only ask because here in New Zealand hardly anyone has one, you never hear people talking about it. We get no adverts on TV that i have seen. And the sections for it are so small at the local gamestore. The amount of games for sale seem to be less than half one shelf. Not to mention the $400-$600 NZ price tag.

So it always confuses me on here when i see all these "why isn't this on Vita" articles. And legions of people wanting games on the thing. Are its sales good in the States and the UK?
Kennytaur  +   640d ago
Not really, the Vita isn't doing too well anywhere. But it's fanbase is vocal about it as it's a truly fantastic machine, but lacking in support. And support will increase its sales.
dboyman  +   640d ago
Problem is I see it many won't support the Vita without the sales, but the sales would come with more support. Seems to me the PS Vita is stuck in a catch 22, between a rock and a hard place...
Krew_92  +   640d ago
It would make sense for the sections of the Vita gamestore to be small, since it's a really new portable device.

Although it's not doing too good, the only people who own one right now, are people who either wanted one from the get-go or people who like the niche games that are being released for it.

Honestly I think once Killzone comes out, and maybe God of War in the future, Americans will start to notice it.

For me the system seller I wanted, was LittleBigPlanet, I know to some it seems like it wouldn't be a system seller, for me I couldn't wait for a well-made LBP portable game. The PSP LBP looks like a PS1 game compared to the new Vita version, haha.

Nintendo played it smart and now 3DS sells like crazy in Japan.Sony on the other hands were caught with their pants down.

And today we have a rumor that only selected Walmart stores will carry Vita,other Walmarts are moving their remaining stock to them.
http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

People from Japan told me that the same shit happened in Japan,some big retailers just flat out stopped carrying Vita.

So yeah...

Oh well. At least it gives another developer a chance to go ahead and establish a new franchise in a less crowded marketplace on Vita. Some developer should jump at the chance to do it.
Hozi  +   639d ago
sony should cut the cost of development for VITA...to give new/indie devs a chance to flex their muscles.
Kennytaur  +   640d ago
It's like the lack of the series on PS3, except that only-in-japan remaster. There's no way it could not be a success, but Capcom, who loves making money, chickens out from moving the series to HD. It's not like the increased production costs won't be made back in sales.

great, i know another capcom game i won't bother playing then...

If this is true, I officially hat you CAPCOM!!! You bastard of a developer!!! MH is PSP'S child and you took that child away and gave it to the enemy!!!! You suck!.....But if you bring Dragon's Dogma to VITA I think I can forgive you.

So much sony drone butt-hurt. There has already been 6 Monster Hunter games for Playstation, the creator said time to move on and give the other company a shot. It's sad Sony fans have to make fake stuff such as the Japanese coding, that's how desperate they are and also proves no games are coming out for the Vita.

R_A_LEE20  +   639d ago
Its getting to a point with the Vita being in the same league as PS Move:

A dead weight with hardly any exclusives and a lack commitment from its creators.

"Explain how it's useless"

I thought it just did....for one the price makes it useless, and i dont remember seeing the 3ds flying off the shelf's at that price range. Now if they had the games like ps1&2 had i would buy the system, especially if they had a real sequel to the ps1 castlevaina....unfortunately those days are gone.
