Capcom’s Christian Svensson comments on the development differences between the two upcoming remastered PSP ports for the Playstation 3, God of War: Origins Collection and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver.
i see big sales for ps3 next week and some this week with this and price drop .
So what, basically Capcom is too lazy to build the game "from the ground up" and to add trophy support? (but not "lazy" enough to charge full price, obviously...)
They (Capcom) answered their own question.....twice basically. Japan and "the west" are two totally different markets, especially for Monster Hunter. In Japan they want all MH, all the time. Both portable and on a console, so Capcom's right in wanting a save that would work on both versions. In "the west", Monster Hunter fans want MH on PS3 (with proper right analog stick attacking back). So do a ground up rebuild for PS3. We don't need PSP compatible save, though I don't see why you couldn't make that possible. And I don't think we even need a localization on MHP3rd. I'm fine with just a PS3 upgrade of Unite which is already localized, and which has PLENTY of content. I'd like to post this on their forums, but their forums don't work on my browser for some reason.
I think the difference will be that GOW had a lot of time and effort put into it,they remade the whole engine and even upgraded the cut scenes which is a 1st for the HD remakes and added trophy support even though Sony said the PSP remakes would not have trophy support. Scamcom on the other hand will do as little as possible with the HD update and then will lock half the content so they can sell you 5-10 dollar unlock keys at a later time.
Wait, how does he know so much if this isn't coming to the west? Well I don't know his position in the company, but I guess he would have to know this stuff even if Capcom US aren't publishing this (or Frontier in the west). Though I usually don't trust any word from Capcom US (especially from them. The Unity site is now pointless...) Though I have to admit this is one of the first HD PSP games... EDIT: Oh wait that explains it... The actual forum respond makes it clearer to me. It seems that they are working on a way to get it to the west! It would be expected about the Ad Hoc part since it's frequently used in Japan compared to other regions.
