It's not even available on the ps3. Aren't you sony camp people the ones always bragging about exclusives? It seems to be a ninty exclusive with no plans to port it.

Those are really good sales, I hope that means it'll come over faster to the west.

styferion3146d ago

I hope so too, but judging from past titles we'll be waiting for the ultimate version before they decide to localize it.

freshslicepizza3146d ago (Edited 3146d ago )

good to see strong console software sales come out of japan.

3ds is the best place to play on the go

Guardia3146d ago (Edited 3146d ago )

Yes, That means that One Kid You Knew in Elementary School's uncle at Nintendo will still have a job! ;)

RoseSapphire3146d ago

When Monster Hunter gets made for a non-Nintendo console I'll be more interested. I'd be much happier with a PS4/Xbone version with fully integrated online play.

EcoSos33146d ago

There will be a MH online that runs on CryEngine 3. I also hope this one makes it here.


This is still the close beta and it looks amazing.

rezzah3146d ago

I hope it comes back to a PS console, been waiting since MHFU (Freedom Unite). I'd prefer the PS4 over the Vita.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory3146d ago

lol okay

even when they support online already on 3ds lol

Neonridr3146d ago

Of course you would be. I mean why support Nintendo, when you can be the cool kid on the block and be Anti-Nintendo?

RoseSapphire3146d ago

Anti-Nintendo has nothing to do with it. The PS4 and Xbone are more powerful machines with a much more robust and friendly online service. It opens up the game to a significantly wider audience while also allowing for an improvement in quality.

Neonridr3146d ago

@BranWheatKillah - fair enough, I was only joking. The fact that you said a non-Nintendo console made it seem like you had other motives. If the NX is more powerful than the PS4, then is there a problem with playing it on that machine?

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory3145d ago

those wider audiences rather
play CoD, Madden, NBA, GTA, Assassin Creed, Need For Speed, FiFa and all the other popular western games.
