Capcom Explains Monster Hunter Switch

Having previously been a PlayStation-only series, Monster Hunter 3 had been announced for development on PS3. However, Gamesindustry reports that Capcom's managing corporate officer Katsuhiko Ichii told Thompson Financial that: "Due to high development cost of titles for PS3, we have decided to switch the platform to which we release our Monster Hunter 3 title."

The story is too old to be commented.

umm was this badly translated or did he just say it's a Wii-only title now?

I understand it cost more to develop on a 360 or PS3, but if you're going down, why making it a Wii exclusive? It would cost next to nothing to produce it for the PS2 and you get an even bigger installed base... Cost even less to make it, and more money coming in... I'm betting on bad translation for now : )

Capcom are losing faith in the PS3. First DMC4 then RE5, now this.
Massive win for Wii, Monster Hunter is an extremely popular series in Japan.
Ps3 owners screwed yet again, losing more exclusives.

I bet they cant handle the PS3/XB360, its a big jump from PSP to PS3, the wii is just a level higher XB360 and PS3 are more than 10level higher imo. D:

Too much for the Monster Hunter Devs?

Monster Hunter will sell FAR more on Wii and costs a lot less to make on Wii. Please know what you are talking about before you say anything.
