Kombo reports: Recent remarks from a Capcom rep who got a sneak peek at Monster Hunter 3 for the Wii are saying that "the game already looks amazing" and more.
Capcom themselves saying MH3 looks amazing, does it mean that much coming from the development company themselves?
for sony,this is as bad as losing exclusivity of gta4,this would have seen ps3 sales skyrocket in Japan
Well it's one thing for Capcom PR to say it, it's another for a community manager to be saying it directly to the fans. Sure, it's still a case of them tooting their own horn, but it's got a bit more veracity to it -- community managers aren't supposed to be salespeople.
Isn't this game on the Wii?
Yep, it's on the Wii - a big deal 'cause all the other games were on PSP, and fans were expecting to get a HD-quality Monster Hunter when it was supposed to come out on PS3 -- many cried foul when they realized they wouldn't be getting a true "next-gen" experience with MH3.
LOL only kids who dont understand what next gen actually means would think that..
VoiceofReason - In your opinion: What does next gen actually mean? Is Wii next gen because of the motion control? So that means 360 and PS3 aren't next gen. Or Is game experience, realism, physics, lighting next gen? Like Euphoria tech. (In GTA4 and the 360 and PS3 versions of Force Unleashed) (Or the frostbite engine in Bad Company.) (Real-time fire physics in the PS3 and 360 version of Alone in the dark.) Meaning 360 and PS3 are next gen, and the Wii isn't. Or is it that you have to have either powerful hardware or a funky new controller to considered next gen? Meaning all 3 qualify. I'm just curious what you think next gen is, as I don't think anyone on these boards can agree with what it is.
Whatever didn't come out THIS gen, or LAST gen. This mentality that HD=next gen makes my f*cking head hurt!!!
I will never play it now...because i will never own a wii
Well, that's too bad -- I'm sure the millions of Japanese MH fanatics who DO own Wiis will be enjoying it without you.
Yeah...Kinda sucks but oh well. And imagine if it looks "amazing" now, it would have looked even better on a PS3. Ah well, life goes on.
Too bad, you'll be missing out.
Capcom pretty much sealed the deal with the Wii in Japan. Especially by the looks of how things are going with the PSP
How witty. Your absolutely magnificient remarks astound me, and amaze me. Being stupid I understand, but being intentionally stupid? Nope.
i'd rather MH3 stayed on the Wii yes there will be a significant loss in graphical quality, but MH is the sort of game that would greatly benefit from the Wii's motion controls although they should also make an MH game for the PS3, maybe MH4? @below exactly, this game will be much better on the Wii
Using a great sword by swinging Wiimote? Sounds awesome. Firing arrows like in Twilight Princess? Also awesome. I think the Wii has a lot to offer to this franchise.
I thought online play was a big part of the Monster Hunter appeal. Seems like this is an area where the Wii might not be a good fit. I could be wrong since I've never played the game.
Methinks that's quite a bit dependant on Capcom, that. For example, EA introduced their own, within game online service. What refrains Capcom from doing the same?
wii be corny....wii be bad controls...wii not revolutionary..its a bad fad
In the open zone.
should have been on PS3. Too bad though. I wonder if it will be one of the pay-to-play titles on the Wii. That would suck.
The game probably does look amazing compared to the other Monster Hunter games, but it still won't look as suave as it could have if Capcom hadn't pulled the plug on the PS3 development. Speaking of PS3 development....is there any game out there that Capcom is actually making exclusive to the PS3? The Xbox is getting exclusives, as is the Wii....why is capcom not showing the love?
Probably cuz Sony is paying for exclusive Capcom titles.... im sure Nintendo did some snooping around to acquire MH3 as a Wii exclusive...but as Sales of the PS3 continue to rise ..im sure alot of those BS publishers will eventually come around,.
basically all Capcom care about is lining up their pockets. forget about bringing something new to the table or showing some creative vision. these guys will bend over backwards for profit and putting out a mediocre title without much effort will no doubt provide an easy cash-in. these guys are a cancer to the gaming industry.
"forget about bringing something new to the table or showing some creative vision. these guys will bend over backwards for profit and putting out a mediocre title without much effort will no doubt provide an easy cash-in." I don't know, the last Capcom title I played was Zack and Wiki. I thought that was fabulously done. While most every other third party I can think of is doing the "easy cash-in" on the wii, Capcom actually made something great.
MH3 should have been a PS3 exclusive...this game would have done wonders for the PS3 in Japan..just look at the PSP figures... but who knows Maybe the PS3 will get MH3 sumtime next year or whenever...Sony needs to step up there game ..on there home turf though...
Nintendo securing this exclusive was probably as big as them getting Dragon Quest IX for DS, if only because of the potential sales it would take from Sony. That being said porting MH3 from Wii to PS3 wouldn't be that hard at all, but who knows maybe Capcom is adding some Wii controls that will be un-emulatable on the PS3.
I hope there is more games like this. This console (like the others) needs it as much as it needs casuals games.
damn now i gotta buy a wii
" "I saw an a non-final build when I was in Osaka recently and it already looks amazing,"" It could be that it might already look POLISHED.....
Whew....thats was close
Capcom Says Monster Hunter 3 "Looks Amazing"... But not really half good as it could have been
Sweet deal. This game should do well seeing that the PSP titles are the biggest sellers for the PSP in general. I'm sure the online play will work out seeing that Nintendo is improving that aspect all the time. Capcom likes to make their own engines so maybe just maybe they are building an engine from the ground up for the Wii for this title ^^
