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

styferion2557d ago

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

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

3ds is the best place to play on the go

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

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.

EcoSos32557d 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.

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

lol okay

even when they support online already on 3ds lol

Neonridr2557d 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?

RoseSapphire2556d 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.

Neonridr2556d 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-Rory2556d ago

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