lol *shudder*

I agree with him - I don't care which console MH is on, providing it's one I own ;)

Thought it really came into its own on psp. Being able to carry 500 hours plus worth of entertainment everywhere = win :)

To me it sounds like regular PR crap. I've met Leo on several ocassion's (even celebrated his birthday with him and loads of others last summer) and he's the complete opposite of conceited. I would say he's merely just doing his job. And in some respects I can agree with what he is saying....The PSP's success...at least in Japan, is on the whole due to Monster Hunter...or at least its resurgence. And Monster Hunter is perhaps the most popular PSP game in the UK...make of that what you will.

“If you look at the PSP sales and you put the graph over Monster Hunter’s release, you’ll see a huge spike,” he said. “I think that some analysts have said that Monster Hunter is solely responsible for PSP continuing to be a commercial success.”

Really? I've never heard of that. Are you pulling this out of your ass?

Grand theft auto, kingdom hearts, final fantasy to name a few.
But i would have to agree that monster hunter is the most important franchise for the japanese psp market seeing that GTA doesn't sell anywhere near as good as it does in the west.

Sony need to keep it exclusive on psp or next gen japanese gamers will have almost no reason to buy a psp2.

I like hearing that, but there are few who treat their video game creations like that...support throughout the years with their title.
