Vooks writes: The video game industry is a dangerous place for developers, publishers and gamers themselves, particularly when talking about console exclusives. Monster Hunter, one of Capcom’s most storied franchises with quite possibly one of the most dedicated cult followings, has always been a "Sony" franchise, with around seven titles being released exclusively on Sony platforms. Naturally, Capcom not only shocked fans when Monster Hunter tri was announced, but also raised hell when they revealed it as a Nintendo Wii exclusive. So, following all the hate and defences that the title has received since it’s original Wii announcement, is Monster Hunter tri really a game worth owning, and, well, how does the series perform on a Nintendo console? Rather admirably.
