Well, I guess it's a start. Can't say I've heard favorable things about Frontier though.

Nitrowolf21010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

ugh not sure how I feel about paying monthly for it though TBH. It's the MMO Port, I like Monster Hunters, but seeing that this one's a pay to play I am not sure about it. Been waiting for years for Capcom to give us a MH game on the PS3 and then they decide to try and nickle and dime us with the MMO.

Kingthrash3601010d ago

wow suprized i am.
but not frontier tho...man mh4 would have been solid. but good news is good news.

rezzah1010d ago

Not only that but capcom never really improved the graphics for MH. A realism in art design and textures go well with its realistic gameplay.

They are holding back on improvements in that area as it still looks like MH on the PS2.

"A realism in art design and textures go well with its realistic gameplay."

Could you be any more wrong?

At least we know that the Nintendo deal is finished in some sort of regard.

It still boggles the mind that Sony could not think to secure the biggest franchise on PSP for their 8th gen handheld.

Well this is a good start. I think capcom wants to test the water first before going full blown with the series onto the ps vita.

Beetey1010d ago

That is exactly what I'm thinking.

BTW... GO NINERS!

MH4 looks graphically miles better...so does MH3 on 3ds..

miyamoto1010d ago

lol, you really opened a can of worms.

MH4 will only look good on a tiny screen bus really low res pixelated mess.

HardcoreGamer1010d ago

ps vita is such an awesome system, i mean 3ds is good but i really think the vita is way better in terms of a handheld. but install base is what makes devs do their things they do. as well as other factors obviously. ya know.

like maybe nintendo offered a glass of water to capcom guy,, then to only forget to give it to the capcom guy.

those are what changes a man. not war. we are just tools of the government,

ok iv lost myself and everyone there. my bad. too much mgs for me lately

falcon971010d ago

The screens you see for MH4 are half the actual resolution you get twice that resolution in 3D......look i played MH3G on 3DS and it blew me away with the graphics and 60fps whilst in 3D mode and realtime shadows it trumped the wii version so looking a screen shots of 3DS games is pointless because their at 400x240 and when u actually play 3DS its 800x240 in 3D or 2D...

"The screens you see for MH4 are half the actual resolution you get twice that resolution in 3D......look i played MH3G on 3DS and it blew me away with the graphics and 60fps whilst in 3D mode and realtime shadows it trumped the wii version so looking a screen shots of 3DS games is pointless because their at 400x240 and when u actually play 3DS its 800x240 in 3D or 2D... "

lol this is why Nintendo fans should just stick to enjoying their games. First of all the game runs at 30fps and dips below that at times. Secondly all games are 400x240 or 240p. when you turn on the 3D so it display 800x240 what's happening is that the image is being rendered twice to give the illusion of the 3D effect. Not only do games get progressively worse when you turn up the 3D but the performance decreases as well. try playing DOA or Street Fighter 4 with and without 3D. The frames litterally drop to unplayable levels with the 3D on. When the 2DS is out you'll only get 400x240 at any given time because there is no 3D function to render the image twice.

At least it's something... (it's a remake/port fyi)

Abriael1010d ago

It still looks better than Monster Hunter 4 lol

Abriael1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

@chadboban hello, higher resolution textures, better definition, higher polygon models.

It definitely looks a TON better.

PS: thanks for the trailer link. I had missed that one.

KonsoruMasuta1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

They both look pretty epic and I'm getting both.

Monster Hunter is still Monster Hunter and Monster Hunter is epic, no matter what platform.

No need to let any fanboyism for one platform blind me.... anything with Monster Hunter in the name is going to be epic.

The only fanboyism here that should be present is the one for the Monster Hunter series.

Monster Hunter <3

chadboban1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

The only thing I'm really noticing is a lot less jaggies. Monster Hunter 4 has better animations and lighting as well. Also the colors are really dull compared to 4.

Let's be honest here man, it looks like an uprezzed PS2 game. Soul Sacrifice looks a lot better than this. But I know I'm gonna get disagreed to hell and back for it.

And no probs about the trailer, found it on GAF actually.

All people are saying is "Yay Monster Hunter Vita!" but you aren't seeing the bigger picture.

It's always online.
It's a port of a very old monster hunter.
The game it's a port of is not looked at favorably by the Monster Hunter fanbase.
It's filled with microtransactions and is apparently the grindiest Monster Hunter ever.
It's not exclusive and is coming to PS3 and Wii U and is already on PC and 360.

Sure if it does well on Vita perhaps Capcom will bring more Monster Hunter games to Vita which could really turn it around. But this just doesn't seem like a good effort on Capcom's part, Japanese people on the stream actually laughed at the announcement.

Abriael1010d ago

Because you can talk for the monster hunter fanbase right?

Considering how popular the game is in Japan, it doesn't sound they agree with you.

And the pixels on Monster Hunter 4 are enormous. It's a muddy mess in comparison.

dark-hollow1010d ago

Are you really comparing that mmo piece of crap to Mon hun 4?

Dan_scruggs1010d ago

For a monthly fee. So have fun with that.

chadboban1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

Nope it's a port of a MMO Monster Hunter released in 2007 for the 360/PC that is also getting a PS3 and Wii U version later this year. The PSP version you're probably thinking of is Freedom Unite.

Edit: Thanks for editing your post, removing "PSP remake/port". Now my post looks out of context.

JackVagina1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

my bad... but i did edit before you posted

Edit: @gribblegrunger yes...he could have edited his post to coincide with my edit by deleting "Nope" and "The PSP version you're probably thinking of is Freedom Unite."

then everything would have been fine

GribbleGrunger1010d ago

Wait a minute ... Why did you type that your post looks out of context when you could have removed what looked out of context when you edited it?! My head hurts.

chadboban1010d ago

@GribbleGrunger

Nah, I don't really like to change my entire post unless I double posted by mistake or something. I rather just leave a note so that people don't get confused, but seeing that I've made your head hurt, seems that I've failed at that. lol

chadboban1010d ago

@JackVagina

Hey, no worries man. Just checked saw that you edited and I posted at pretty much the same time. Man, talk about close. LOL

Dlacy13g1010d ago

Its a solid title for the Vita to add to the library.

DestinyHeroDoomlord1010d ago (Edited 1010d ago )

Hopefully this doesn't split their Japanese fanbase

xxPillsxx1010d ago

The West... don't forget the western
Seriously, bring it to the west

falcon971010d ago

This will not come to the west......

DestinyHeroDoomlord1010d ago

Not sure how I feel about it being a pay to play mmo... yeah no
