CC: Ryozo Tsujimoto, the lead producer on Monster Hunter Freedom Tri has revealed the main factor of the series coming to the Wii was the consoles motion controller.
The real reason is because the Wii has sold alot more consoles and they figure with a higher install base they will get more sales. Another reason is because developing for the Wii is cheaper. This whole "because of the motion controller" is utter BS. I hope the western sales of MH3 bomb, it should always of been on the PS3 seeing how the game sells the most on PSP which is a sony platform.
Ah diddums Noctis, go cry in the corner.
Why do you want a whole series to bomb? Edit: Are you seriously that butt hurt? Why?
I never said the whole series should bomb, just this version. Also the comment is indeed showing my bias towards the ps3, but it's not enough to warrant being posted in the open zone, i may come across as p1ssed off and that isn't simply cause the game is on the wii it's because they would rather make up some lie then give the real reasons behind them choosing the platform. @jamescagney: oh can you pass me a tissue? you really hurt my feelings and it's going to take me a while to recover from your extremely well thought up insult. The main reason i think it should of stayed as a PS3 game is because of all the space available on blu-ray, and for a game like this more space will only make the game bigger and better.
Yes it is. 1) You just said you have a ps3 bias. 2) You want it to flop in the states because it's not a ps3/psp title. 3) Your fanboyish rant had nothing to do with PhilipLarkin's post, but you just had to make it a reply so your rant can get some attention. The Gamer Zone Posting Guidelines says "leave your fanboyism at the door please", follow the rules and do as it says. 7_7
"it should always of been on the PS3 seeing how the game sells the most on PSP which is a sony platform" Isn't this their highest selling MH game ?
I agree that its not due (solely) to the motion controller. Wii has the highest install base, and they can use the engine from the PS2 with a few minor updates = greatest profits (theoretically more sales and a lower development cost).
"The producer was also asked whether the game might move to the PS3 or 360 in the future, but the answer he gave seemed to divert the attention away from the question" - Arc and Natal maybe? I'd be happy with that xD
I tried Monster Hunter Freedom Unite on PSP and I just couldn't get into it.... Maybe I should give it a chance on Wii, but it seemed so repetitive and mundane. You cross through the same areas repeatedly just to track down beasts to kill. The animations were poor and I was just not satisfied with the game.
Never really liked the series actually. Don't get me wrong, excellent games they are; just not my cup of tea
day 1 for me!
so that passes as news huh.. one quote and three sentences. Who cares.. it's just another of the huge number of AAA releases wii is getting this year and i am very very happy. It's about time!
Monster Hunter is a good game once you really get into it...
"It's actually the biggest reason. You mentioned 'aside from the motion controls,' but actually, the controller part of the Wii version is the biggest focus that we had, the main element that we wanted to present to the new users." ---------- I call b.s. They're packaging it with the classic controller pro. And there's also this: "Due to high development cost of titles for PS3, we have decided to switch the platform to which we release our Monster Hunster 3 title,' Capcom managing corporate officer Katsuhiko Ichii said." http://www.forbes.com/feeds...
The real reason is a hat made of money and the fact that Nintendo is going to push it heavily in the west and that they're currently the number one publisher. ...and if you read the actual interview he doesn't even entertain the question about it going to the PS3/360 and good on him because I bet he's tired of being asked it.
