Nintendo Wii News | Monster Hunter 3 Ditches PlayStation 3

Earlier this morning it was revealed, much to shock of the world, that Capcom was to bring Monster Hunter 3 to Wii. With the game already announced for the PlayStation 3 last year, clearly this caused some confusion. Now Capcom has clarified matters by removing the PS3 listing from its official website and now adding the game to its Wii line-up list. Also, it has revealed details of the game:

Officially titled "Monster Hunter 3 (tri-)", this new edition of the multi-million selling "Monster Hunter" series will mark its d

Boo ya! Another one ditched the Sony boat! So that's Dragon Quest and Monster Final Fantasy jump the boat to 360 and bury the shit out of that god awful company!

Final Fantasy XIII won't jump to any console but PS3 I think. Sony are depending on that game & in some situations that game alone to sell it's console ^^;

FFXIII on Wii plz :3

Smilie FANTASTIC NEWS, never expected this to happen... finally there is some good still in CAPCOM!! *everyone point and laughy at sony* HAR HAR!! Smilie

I only played the first game of the series and i quite liked it!

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Best news I've herd in months. Just reading it made me smile.

"on the most popular current generation home console, rather than Sony's underperforming PS3."

Are those Capcom's words? Hahahahahahaha...


Top games:
5-The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
4-Super Mario Galaxy
3-Eternal Darkness
2-Super Mario Bros 3
1-Super Mario Bros

Pwned Smilie

This looks quite interesting. I've never played a Monster Rancher game before, but that screenshot looks pretty nice, and the game sounds quite interesting.

Add me on anything. I'm always looking for new friends/opponents/town visitors/chances to appear more popular than I actually am.

This is almost as big a blow for sony as FF coming to Wii (in japan anyway)SmilieSmilie

Avoid Games Like the Plague, productivity++

Sony just got cockblocked.

Mike Gee of iZINE said, "...The Verve, as he promised, had become the greatest band in the world. Most of the critics agreed with him. Most paid due homage. The Verve were no longer the question mark or the clich. They were the statement and the definition."

If Capcom said that, then maybe they do still love us :3

Now all we need is far more Namco & Konami love than we're getting. It's pretty damn ignorant & mean of them to abandon us Smilie

Best news of the day for me I think - absolutely fantastic and a great snatch for Nintendo. Looking forward to this one!

SmilieI told my friend the PS3 sucks. So I've been reminding him every day that he should of got wii and/or 360. Now I have another exclusive to tell him about the ps3 and it's suckyness got it lost.Smilie

Not by a long shot.

No Longer Temporarily Banned.

Amazing, I never thought that this was true until Capcom spoke out. As ZSimon says this will amaze the japanese gaming public more than anyone else, this really is going to be a massive shift in their eyes and one that many will take note of. This is a massive game for Wii and one that I think will find a receptive audience of worldwide Wii owners. Great Art style in that footage above.

There are some great games lined up, Metroid Prime 3 on Friday is a good start, then Galaxy and some other good games like Zack and Wiki to fill in while we wait on Brawl. Best gaming Christmas, EVER, all my pre orders are in all I have to do is get through these games I am playing now.

Thank goodness. I'm glad to see some developers are waking up and smelling the coffee. The PS3 was dead the moment Sony slapped that price-tag on it.

Of course, that's just an opinion.

Gears of War
Halo 3
Mass Effect
Orange Box
Blue Dragon


Super Mario Galaxy
Metroid Prime 3
Super Smash Bros Brawl
Monster Hunter 3
Battallion Wars II
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

How? These are only some of the top games for each system, but I wouldn't call it a "long shot"

& Wii still beats PS3 in terms of great exclusive games.

(oh no we lost that as well!) and smackdown versus raw (damn) and unreal (sob) and ace combat (...) ...and ...and another final fantasy game (phew we still have that)!! So don't diss my company!!
