Capcom comments on Monster Hunter 4 Vita rumor

I would not believe everything you read on the internet. It will set you up for disappointment or misdirected frustration. - Christian Svensson, Capcom

Sounds like Capcom is trying to let people down easy with the rumor. I guess it's not very likely to happen! Thanks to NintenDaan for the heads up!

yeah, i don't get the way people feel the vita is being unjustly treated and is entitled to equality with it's competitors. nintendo did what they could to ensure they had an upper hand. it was simply business. if sony wanted the vita to do well, they should have done things differently. them failing is their own fault, not nintendo's. the 3ds is doing well because nintendo is doing things well for it, not because sony is doing things poorly. i feel sorry for the people who have invested in the vita and want it to do well to protect their investment, but your purchase isn't enough to warrant the vita deserving success, as beneficial as that might be to you. the vita deserves jack squat. sony deserves jack squat.

The problem with the Vita is that it looks like a maxi pad for lady robots. That thing is girl-repellent. No matter what games come to it, you'll still look like a freak playing it in public.

@Phant0mG4m3r

IF the Vita does fail, do you really think Vita developers will suddenly move their projects to the 3DS? That's highly unlikely. They'll either cancel their projects entirely or shift development to mobile platforms like smartphones. Most 3rd party developers hate Nintendo. So we'll just lose out on more competition by the Vita failing, with little to no gain on Nintendo's end (game-wise, sales-wise is another story). Nintendo will just have the opportunity to be lazier since they don't have any direct competition, unless you include the mobile market.

A lot of Vita hate in here, the Vita seems to be a great handheld in terms of technology, the only problem is Sony doesn't care enough to try to save it from what these past few months have shown, Vita does deserve better.

Personally, I find the Vita to be an interesting handheld that could've worked wonders..... However, Sony decided to do bad business and look where it is now. I would've cared about the vita; had it not been for the fact that the PSP will forever be the last handheld from Sony I'll get (unless they release something interesting) and the fact that the ratio of games is nothing to give a fraction of a **** about.

Most 3rd party developers who make games for handheld systems are in Japan and most have a very good opinion of Nintendo NIS not withstanding.

In almost a decade, no core Monhun has remained on a single platform. In time, Monster Hunter 4 will be no different.

Why are people talking as if the Vita doesn't get MH4 that it will flop? Even if it did, I couldn't see a lot of sales justified for it's release for the Vita. I mean, they already have the fan base by already having MH3. And I don't get it...people say that Nintendo needs 3rd party games, but when they do (like MH for example), they want it on the Vita as well! Makes no sense to me.

*SIGH*

Exclusives are VERY IMPORTANT for a console manufacturer. If that isn't obvious then people have issues.

If this is true, then Nintendo have done a GREAT, hold on now, BUSINESS decision. We nerds here, who read about gaming on a daily basis, know that the Monster Hunter games sell like crazy in Japan (specially on portables) and it's name is growing here in the west. If true then all I can say is: "Well done, Nintendo!". They also got their claws on Bayonetta 2 which is good for me since I have a Wii U :) (I would have gotten the game whatever console it woul hea to, but might save some money on this).

Microsoft o not throw that much money for exclusives (timed or not) just because they don't know what to do with all their money, but it will turn a profit in the end. That an making some games go multi (Tekken and FF for example)

Exclusives are important.

EDIT: Another very good thing with exclusives is that developers can focus on one single system, so the quality gets a boost too (or should).

I don't get the hate for Vita. It's potentially a great system and has a lovely screen that I much prefer to the one on 3DS (even the XL), Sony just needs to lower the price a little and get more good exclusive software.*

(* I have a couple other little complaints with it, such as the back touch panel being mostly a useless added expense that compromises a comfortable grip, and the analog sticks lacking in range of motion and resistance, but Nintendo's system isn't perfect either. 3DS has pointy edges that dig into my palms and an analog slider that lacks grip, requiring constant pressure that makes my thumb sore, as well as screen resolution that's been cut in half for a feature (3D) I almost never use, and poor battery life as well.)

If I'd bought a Vita, I could understand being worried about its future, but since I haven't, I'll just say that people need to not hate it so much. I don't like it, but that doesn't mean I want it to die. At the same time, if Sony's doing a bad job with it, they deserve their revenue losses (don't say they aren't doing a bad job with it and it's simply because of XYZ). Though even if Vita does die, Nintendo still does have competition with iOS/Android devices.

Why? Just because you're a Nintendo fanboy doesn't mean that you have to hate on anything else.

Good, maybe the vita will soon fade away and Nintendo can be the true winner yet again :).

I would say that while Vita doesn't have really any games that match up to SM3DL in my mind, it has a better lineup of games 11 months in than the 3DS did. shovel's not selling well but let's not pretend there's nothing to play on it

As opposed to the beautiful elegant 3DS and 3DS XL? :lol:

Handheld game devices have always looked stupid. The DS Lite and GB Micro had the perfect designs in my eyes. The 3DS looks straight up weird in comparison.

In japan , vita is over . Let's get realistic here those numbers 57times less 20times less , that's not good and that's been going on for the whole year now. The undying support from bamco and their unlimited licenses will keep the sony platforms in general viable for the longest time . I really wonder why that game made mostly with video (akb149) wasn't on the 3ds , that would have sell just as much .
and for that weird rumors any three years windows would start with a release of an actual game , or more likely would specify what games would be exclusive . So that would mean 2014 , and the vita would be even more dead than now .
Sony messed up big time but that gave more opportunity for square , namco , konami and capcom to ask for "co marketing" money in order to not release their games on wii u . So see , sony is benefiting from that situation , it's not all bad .

100% agree. And while I think competition drives better quality, Nintendo fostered in the greatest handheld game ever made when they had no competition (pokemon anyone?)

theres nothing good , better lineup in your universe, going by metascores you have no point, going by software sales you have no point and going by common sense you have no argument. You hate mario, good for you, but having the only decent title being a launch title(gravity rush) and nothing worthwhile these months (the last big thing for it was a COD sidestory which is horribly executed and nobody bought btw ), i mean wow lol, what would you play on your Vita right now?seriously, what are you even playing there now

I've got no argument? I've got a big argument son! Wall o text incoming

#1 - I thought that saying stuff like 'I would say' and 'in my mind' illustrated that this was in fact my opinion, one that obviously isn't going to be met with much agreement here, but so be it. Yeah, you're right, software sales don't agree with me. PS Vita is faring about as well on Metacritic as 3DS did during its first 11 months (I'm gonna keep on repeating First 11 Months because you didn't catch that the first time around I guess) but I don't really give a damn dude. As a fan of fighting games and a MASSIVE Wipeout fan Vita appealed to me out of the gate and kept on appealing to me until that shovel broke a few months ago. Did you catch that? I don't own a Vita anymore. I own a 3DS, though, that I paid $250 for on launch day, and it has some of my favorite handheld games of all time on it. Like Mario Kart 7 and SM3DL. In fact, SM3DL is my favorite handheld game I've ever played in my entire life. So how on earth do you figure that I hate Mario? Especially when I stated out of the gate that I don't feel like any of Vita's games match up to 3DS's best titles?

#2 - I'll admit most of the reason I like Vita's lineup is because of really good ports, which it has plenty of and helps bolster a library short on quality exclusives. But let me point out that for the first 11 months of the 3DS's lifecycle most of the $40 games that were defended - many of which were also ports - didn't match up or barely matched up to the quality of some of these Vita ports. Of course that's subjective, and I understand if you disagree, I really do. But keep in mind that I never said the Vita had a better library than the 3DS - it doesn't - , just that I personally preferred its library 11 months in to what the 3DS had to offer 11 months in, and that it has more than 'nothing'.

And I can actually explain my reasoning. So without further ado, let me write up a list of 3DS's first 11 month's games that garnered a fanbase here at GoNintendo.
Spoiler:
Pilotwings Resort, a short and relatively content-less game that got by on having a familiar name and being among the first wave of 3D games.
Steel Diver, almost the same thing. It was a pretty unique and fun title. Both of these games are fairly good in their own right but I wouldn't say they're worth $40.
SSIV3D, a fantastic port of one of my favorite games of this generation, filled with content and boasting serviceable online (which for some reason would be locked at 30fps unless both players had 3D disabled entirely in the options menu)
DoA: Dimensions, a serviceable fighter for fans of the series and a good library padder.
BlazBlue Continuim Shift II, a poor port which suffered from slowdown, lacked online, and had some laughable 3D
Star Fox 3D, a great port of a great game
OoT Remake, a decent port of a game I think is overrated as hell but I didn't play it when it was new so maybe I just don't get it. The 3D was inconsistent and keeps it from being a great port in my mind
Cave Story 3D, a $40 version of a game I enjoyed greatly for $10 on the Wii
RE Mercenaries, an overrated port of a single multiplayer mode that I could only see appealing to completion and people looking for some sort of online game to play on their shiny new system
SM 3D Land, the freshest Mario game since Galaxy and the game that proved to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that Nintendo still has that magic that got me into gaming
Resident Evil Revelations, an awesome atmospheric game that deserves to be played by every single fan of the series
and Mario Kart 7, my most played 3DS game on account of it being my favorite Mario Kart since Super Circuit


Now, here's my opinion of the games I've played for Vita since its release 11 months ago.

Spoiler:
Persona 4 Golden, a fantastic port of a decent RPG. Persona has never really been my thing but for fans of the series I can see it being among the best
Mortal Kombat, a good port that suffered a little bit in the graphics department but made up for it by holding at 60fps and being chocked with content
NSF Most Wanted, a great racing game that suffered very few compromises in the transition to Vita, the only major one being the lowered player count during online matches
UMVC3, the most perfect port of a fighting game in the history of handheld fighting games
MGS HD Collection, another good port
Wipeout 2048, a great launch title with good online, cross-platform play with Wipeout HD Fury, and adreniline-packed gameplay that had gone a long way in providing me the fix of hardcore futuristic racer that Nintendo has denied me since F-Zero GX
Gravity Rush, a totally unique and interesting title, but I wasn't actually that big of a fan of the gameplay, it was mostly the atmosphere that kept me playing
Uncharted: Golden Abyss, an incredibly uninspired and boring side quest that controlled poorly and got by on graphics alone
ACIII - Liberation, a decent game in its own right but doesn't really come close to Assassins Creed 2
Lumines Electronic Symphony, a faithful if unambitious rendition of the only falling blocks style game I've truly enjoyed since Tetris DS (nothing will ever compare to Tetris DS tho)
Rayman Origins, a great port of an amazing (or at least fresh) platformer that lacks multiplayer like the 3DS iteration but gets points for not looking like a blurry 30fps locked mess and actually having been released
Unit 13, same situation as Resident Evil Mercenaries, a totally uninspired and boring game to fill that shooter fix

So there's some good, theres some bad, and it's all up to opinion but regardless of your opinion it's a hell of a lot more than 'nothing', and if a Nintendo system boasted those games during its first year you'd better believe that every single one of them would have been brought up in discussions where someone claimed that the 3DS had no games. Just like nearly every single one of the 3DS titles I listed were brought up in those discussions, regardless of their quality in hindsight. Which brings me back to my original point, that Vita actually does have a couple of games and it's unfair to act like it has simply 'nothing'. I sort of understand the conclusion that the system is lacking in games because they haven't sold like gangbusters and haven't been advertised very well (and plus you're not gonna hear about many Vita games browsing GoNintendo), but telling me 'I have no point' or 'no argument' like none of the games I listed for Vita are worth mentioning is a dick move based on logic that quite frankly gives me more of a license to act like you're acting the fanboy than my original post gave you to think that I'm some sort of Sony fanboy who hates Mario. It's whatever though. Hopefully now that I've explained myself in greater detail you at least understand my position, one that you might have understood immediately if you knew more about Vita's lineup beyond Nihilistic Game's botched treatments of first party slash CoD titles, or had cared to read my original post just a bit more carefully. :wink:

p.s. I think the Vita is going to die an early death due to Sony's mistakes, just like many of you! Ain't it just weird that I can think that and still somehow see that it's got a couple of genuinely good games on it?
