Andriasang: "PlayStation 3 is finally getting a Monster Hunter game. Capcom announced Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Version for the system today."
Why is PS3 getting the port of a PSP title and not it's own game? Also, Monster Hunter Tri > Monster Hunter Portable 3rd
Seriously make a whole new game no reason for a port.
Capcom = lazy but generally good game company. Besides - or in addition to - what would justify a PS3 version other than something with open world elements? Honestly, Capcom just isn't that skilled.
Personally this is some of the best news I've heard in a long, long time. Especially as a Monster Hunter fan. This BETTER come to the U.S. Granted, I would obviously prefer a true PS3 Monster Hunter. But the fact is Capcom have pretty much become sellouts, especially with the Monster Hunter series. For some reason they refuse to make a true PS3 Monster Hunter. But as a Monster Hunter fan, graphics aren't all that important to me. It's the hunt I love, and creating new weapons and armor pieces. Monster Hunter on PS2 is pretty much my favorite game of all time. Between my 3 characters I had over 1600 hours just online. Best co-op game ever made. And while the PSP versions were all superior content wise, I just didn't like playing on PSP. It made my hands cramp after like 30 minutes and MH is a game I like playing for hours on end. Not to mention lack of online play, I just don't enjoy the experience solo. If this comes to the U.S. you can consider it already sold. I'm just praying that since they are optimizing for PS3, they put attacks back on the right analog stick, and not just keep it on triangle and circle. If they release this in the U.S., Capcom will have gotten back at least SOME of all my repect they've lost over this console generation.
Better than nothing, if it does well, maybe we'll see a full game.
because they found out that MH game is only work on portable. having ps3 version allow you to play better quality graphic in 3D. then continue it on the bus by transferring to PSP. plus people want HD MH anyway
"MH game is only work on portable." No, just no
why is rrw getting disagrees, theres another article saying SONY will have a psp series for ps3 so you can play them on ps3 and continue ur game on the go, its eexactky what he said, damn, N4G at night has more ignorant people.
Because it is supposed to have cross saving? or because you could play it through your psp then ps3 then psp while on vacation then back to ps3 while laid bed?... Say again about the wii version bound to be better lol? because obviously it is not, only with the fact of cross ssharing saves, portable 3rd win. Edit, Darkcharizard with 3 bubbles, and obviously using them to downplay sonys enthralling moves, what a surprise eh?
I'd love to hear your argument for that, honestly Monster Hunter Freedom Unite DESTROYS Tri already in scope and content, I don't see how Tri> 3rd...
It's because according to capcom the budget would be to high to make a ps3 monster hunter. Even though they bring out multiple other titles that are going down hill on the platform.. Anyways, a port allows them to bring the title to ps3 at a low cost.. should still be cool :D i'll buy it, they know its in huge demand for the psp so if loads sell on ps3 it will increase the chances of a new game being made for the console :D (most likely one for the ps3 & ngp)
Megaton. I cant even imagine how many units this is going to move in Japan.
Not too many, since everyone bought the game last year... EDIT Actually, THEY'RE insane if they would buy the whole game again just to see it on a big screen wearing a pair of goofy goggles. I'd say make a whole new game, Cap!
You're insane if you think fans of the series wouldn't be just as delighted to play this game both at home and on the road.
Color me insane! I would also like for Crapcon to make a completely new Monster Hunter designed specifically for the PS3. But, sooner or later, I must realize that this isn't dreamland.
Monster Hunter for NGP will certainly have incredible graphics so you people dont complain about being ported or not, i said it first!
This has the potential to outsell the PSP version... You underestimate this Japanese market, don't be an ungrateful gamer, I bet you'll buy the game after all the trash talk :P
Actually, THEY'RE insane if they would buy the whole game again Pokemon series Gotta Catch 'Em All Street Fighter like 2 and 4 so many versions
Finally a Monster Hunter game on Ps3, just wonder how long we'll have to wait to get it in the states.
Its disappointed because of the lack of a true "online" feature to the HD remake. Excited that we are finally getting a MH game on the PS3. Hopefully the sales was prompt Capcom to make a true MH game design for the PS3.
Well Ad-Hoc party pretty much gives you all the basic features you'd need. Including voice chat, which alone is big considering Monster Hunter on PS2, while my favorite online game of all time, had the MAJOR flaw of no voice chat....only text. Just being able to hunt online again, with a dual shock controller is enough to put a smile on my face. Is it the ideal circumstances? No. But it still makes me happy as a true Monster Hunter fan going back to the original.
It will sell in JP,Tri is disappointed. Even a HD remake will sell better than tri. No worry,somebody.
Actually Tri is preferred because most people felt Portable 3rd was a bit too easy. Still sold 4.5m units in Japan but people still think its easy.
Judging from the sales, literally millions of people prefer 3rd...
wwm0nkey is probably trying to say 2ndG instead of Tri. Tri was just a testing version for 3rd with no weapons. But I do agree 3rd is too easy. Knowing capcom they'll do a dlc of 3rdG/HD after they milk 3rdHD though.
I just hope the beef up the difficultly on this on the PS3 since we have dual analog support now.
I'm shocked. Wow, but this interests me more: "Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD is part of a new PlayStation 3 series from Sony called PSP Remaster. This series features PSP titles customized for re-release on PS3." *cough* God of War: Portable Collection truth?
Project Diva PS3. Gundam Battle Universe PS3. MACROSS ACE FRONTIER PS3!!!!! Words cannot express how very, very okay I am with this. That someone is enough of a dumbass to actually disagree with this comment of mine... I am substantially less okay with.
Not really a fan of Monster Hunter games. Then again, there are plenty of games I liked on home consoles but didn't on handhelds: the addition (or lack) of dual analog controls can make a BIG difference. That said, I'm unsure of how well a game like that might do outside of Japan. There's not a lot of blood or gore, the combat is pretty slow-paced by our standards, and there's no real story to drive the player forward. The whole game basically takes the "Pokemon" approach of getting players to keep playing with the promise of various in-game rewards, and most of the gamers who eat up that kind of thing are stuck forever in MMORPGLimbo.
better then nothing fuck yeah finally MH with a proper controller like in the PS2
wait for E3 SONY PLEASE someone tell sony that this year no announcements this close E3 everybody is going to be like "we knew about it before E3" i can't go through that a nother year, let this and PS store be the only news before E3 also I really want to play this game, the japanese went crazy for it
Why don't they just port all the Monster Hunters on bluray lol. They'll all fit.
I know right, I figured we'd get HD remasters of the Ps2 games before this.
I'm not sure how I feel about this. On the one had HD visuals are good but a remake of the psp game isn't. I don't know. I already have Monster Hunter Tri and I think that game is pretty good. I think this will be big in Japan though.
Really Capcom? You can't do better than a PSP port to a PS3?
That what I wanna know
Wow a few months ago I let a comment on n4g saying it would be cool if capacom made Monster Hunter for ps3 with 3d support and able to transfer saves between the psp version. It's almost like capcom read it. I actually wanted a full fledge ps3 game not a psp port.
Actually looking forward for this, yes its just a port but considering not everyone has a psp so I see nothing wrong with HD versions of the games.
It's not the MH i hoped for for the ps3, But THANK YOU CAPCOM for bringing a MH game to the ps3.
This will sell a ton load in Japan. Hopefully we get Peace Walker, GOW and Silent Hill Collections. That's five games in HD with Dual Analogues!
Yep that should be it then... another HUGE exclusive coming out for PS3 Japan is gotta wet their pants!
No of course there no wrong about hd port from perfect psp games that it better than ps3 games But there something weird in capcom. This game muuuuuuch better in ps3 just see this graphics It toooo sharp!! So what the problem when make it much gloosy and have much details and make new ps3 game ??? Anything hard to undertand ??
