According to the latest press release, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (known as Monster Hunter Freedom 3 in North America) is now the fastest selling Capcom game.
so where is the ps3 version then
Yeah, I'd like to see a PS3 version too. I think the main thing to get out of this news is that the PSP is indeed still relevant unlike what many people say. The PSP2 is going to be a nice handheld and, since it's coming out during holiday 2011, it will sell well (as long as it's not astronomically priced). If it has 3G capability (a la the iPad's subscription-based 3G), then I'll get it for sure since that will allow anywhere online capability and PSN connectivity. Also, PS2 classics playable on the PSP2 would be nice.
As a gamer I'm very Happy. Next PS3
maybe this was a test to see how MH would do this gen on Sony's platform
the only thing I'm afraid of is that Capcom might charge us a monthly fee if a ps3 ever comes out.
Why? Monster Hunter isnt an mmo save for the 360 re-release. Its an action-rpg. Its a JRPG. Its a GOOD JRPG, y'know, a genre seriously lacking in PS3 great library. In the perfect world, I would want to see a Story-Driven Monster Hunter game with drop-in/drop-out online and offline co-op with up to 4 friends, exclusive to PS3, to harness the graphical and technical capabilities of said console. I aint trying to be fanboyish here, but I believe Exclusives have better gfx than multi-plats, and Monster Hunter franchise deserves the quality treatment.
now MH Portable is already reaching FF and DQ status in Japan! how ironic is this when it's their fastest selling game but on a device which is touted to be dead by many and only in 1 country? I doubt the game will ever make it 1 mil everywhere else worldwide but fact is, Mh is now like a staple franchise for the PSP and I think they will continue this tradition for PSP2!
I want it! Did y'all see the fighting snow rat bear thing? There's also an red ant eater armadillo with long tongue attack. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
As much as I loved the PSP Monster Hunters I want a PS3 version! I've been waiting for a loooooooonngg time and it makes no sense why Capcom wouldn't make it unless they're tied with Nintendo through a deal.
I'd bet so after Tri [which was not AS bad] which kind of ticked off a few people still. They knew a PSP version was imminent and being that the old monsters from Tri and previous iterations as well as newer monsters were going to be thrown in; that is what sealed it. Still Aceitman brings up something interesting where is the PS3 version? PS2 had a version and Xbox 360 has frontier [which I'd like to try as well]. Seriously an MMO related Monster Hunter? With add-ons every few months more monsters and all? I'd get that and they can continue to send out PSP versions just for those on the go. Capcom should really evaluate their gaming strategy and read around the web.
its time for a ps3 version
Finally the Monster hunter franchise gets what it deserves :-) Solfol BDS-Specialist!
Nice. I too, would like to see a PS3 version.
I just ordered the second one online yesterday
square enix can learn a thing or two from "Monster Hunter."
well they have Dragon Quest so not really
Square Enix's FF14.
Actually square is or did if its out make a monster hunter clone for psp called lord of Arcana. More like monster hunter meets God of War with quick time finishers. But I doubt it could emulate the feel of Monster Hunter. I think cuz in monster hunt is more like a Sim style gameplay while the imitators are more arcade.
I'm not saying Square Enix needs to make a Monster Hunter clone. I think FF14 can borrow elements from Monster Hunter and Demon's Souls. Monthly fees a is a thing of the past.
There's a game that tried to copy MH and it was called God Killers or something like that... didnt sell very well and MH fans from Minegarde didnt like it.
a ps3 monster hunter will dominate in sales. MS better put their head between their legs if this happens.
MH on the PS3 Could seriously end this pointless console war and bring back the true meaning of Multiplayer
come on capcom monster hunter ps3 please :)
However I don't expect Capcom US to say anything whatsoever about localizing it for several months.
There won't be a PS3 version because Capcom has stated that it would cost too much money and wouldn't sell enough.
really? look at the psp sales in JP alone.
If you don't believe me then look up Capcom interviews.
Sadly it's true been years since they have disappointed me with the Monster Hunter Franchise. Not that MH is bad on the psp, it's just long overdue for it to come out on the ps3.
The MH franchise strongest platform is SONY. The fanbase in Japan would rival that or even outsold the sales provided by FFXIII. -End of Line
That was early in the Ps3 life when the Ps3 didn't had a small user base it most likely will sell now. Odds are most of the people who bought the game are also ps3 owners. Cuz if you think about. To play Monster Hunter for psp online you need to have a ps3 connected to the internet and AD hoc party. Making a Ps3 version would be the smart thing to do. (Like I know its not that easy) There is so much potential. You can have it that you can transfer your chatacter and save data between the ps3 and psp versions and have so that you can continue where you left off in the ps3 version on psp. Plus with the playstation move you can play it like the wii and with the PS3 able to play games in 3D. A game like Monster Hunter in 3D would be sick. Imagine a Rathalos fire ball lookin like it was flying out the screen at you. Capcom would be stupid not to jump at an oppotunity like this. There problaby alot of money involved in make something like this happen but they will definitely make it back plus profit.
I've never played this series but from what I've gathered it seems to be like a hand held Demon's Souls, which is the kind of experience I've been looking for on my PSP. So I'm gonna play this.
There is no magic or special abilties but attacking uses stamina like Demon Souls. Just you your weapon mano y mano against a monster and monster hunt doesn't punish you as hard as Demon Souls does.They are similar in alot of ways but they are different too.
Monster Hunter ps3. Make it happen Capcom.
So give us a PS3 version Capcom and give the people a chance to play with real buttons! Instead its on the Wii. Capcom cancelled the orginally planned game on the PS3.
They should make Lost Planet into the PS3/360 monster hunter equivalent. It's almost there anyway just needs a hub, ditch the story and work on the RPG elements.
WTF you obbiously never played Monster Hunter, 80% of the guys commenting haven't. Monster Hunter has no story, doesn't need extra RPG elements and has a hub. God some people..
lol what? I was talking about what they'd need to do to transform the Lost Planet IP into a monster hunter type game... You're a very confused guy. lol
agreed with all, it TIME for a PS3 version .
