PlayStation Vita: No Monster Hunter A Huge Loss For Sony

Chris Buffa (Modojo): Sony's PlayStation Vita debuts in Japan December 17, and while the initial launch games look decent, the fact that the system will release without a Monster Hunter (or one in the foreseeable future) casts some doubt on the handheld's future.

Christopher...just stop this now. We all know you love the 3DS and that is fantastic. But do you really need to write one of these articles every single day? Just go play Ocarina of time or something. Seriously, you're getting a little out of hand with this.

This guy is an idiot. Did anyone come out and say there will NOT be a monster hunter on Vita? I guarantee it will come, unless they hate money.

Capcom could of converted many games on wii but they didnt like RE5 was possible on wii but they chose not to after 2 million sales of RE4 same thing right there.

Oh and PSP had 1 anologue not 2 and that sold millions and millions so Vita with 2 nubs isnt even a sell sorry.

And all this talk 3rd party games dont sell well on nintendo platforms is a rubbish only on wii has this happened because the graphics had to be downgraded now with 3ds they can be just as good as the competition.

Yup this C"db"b is a serious Sony hater. All he ever writes is negative articles about Sony. Its like they did something to him that scarred him for life.

This MAY end up being a mistake and the new monster hunter clone on the Vita could rise. The PSN advantage is a big deal. I think a Phantasy star portable 3 or Ragnarok could at the very least try to unseat Monster hunter with better online features and easier combat to get a noobs head around. Japan will vote with their dollars and if Ragnarok is pitched and priced right we will see how this shakes out.

Actually, Japan will vote with Yen, no dollars, lol, just playing bro!!!!

The website appears to post articles criticizing and praising both systems, so I'm not sure what you're getting at. Perhaps HBK has had too many pile drivers from the Undertaker, eh?

So, what happens when the Vita eventually does get a MH? Just like every other gaming platform currently out except for the iPad - and I'm probably wrong about that.

Smiling5352225d ago

Oh it'll be huge. Capcom would be stupid to just ignore Vita entirely. A system with that kind of horsepower would do the franchise proud.

rezzah2225d ago

It's not about "hp" when it comes to Capcom and MH. They seek the easiest way to make MH while selling a lot of copies.

hence the decision to make MHTri exclusivity from PS3 over to Wii.

In this situation i am sure that MH would take up a hell of a lot less time to develop from the ground up for the 3DS than the Vita (especially since it's similar to the PS3).

Well this will be a test for Sony. Will the Vita's other functions and games out way this game. Since seeing remote play working well I just do not know (basically it seems like Wii U type functionality but sooner). Monster hunter basically carried the PSP in Asia. Its a loss but will the impact be great on sales. We just do not know.

Vita is an amazing piece of hardware with quality games being developed for it.Final Fantasy X is being remade for the Vita, and there's ton of Sony exclusives.

Sure, MH is a good franchise and all, but I don't see it being detrimental to the Vita's sales, at all.
