Worked out so well with Street Fighter V.

I doubt MH on PS4 would perform similarly to DQ. This isn't or wouldn't be Capcom's first console foray for MH, it does not turn out particularly well.

I think that had more to do with the barebones/competitive approach they made at launch, rather than the exclusivity. Exclusive games can do well if they deliver.

Nowhere near as well as they do multiplatform this gen. There's really no point at all.

I don't think PS4 DQ sales will be all that great in the West. Sure, compared to other Japanese games maybe, but I imagine that if everyone in the West only buys the PS4 version, it will probably only amount to about a million. One an a half million is the best DQ has ever done in the west, and I doubt it will reach that, as everything DQ released since 9 has seriously under performed there.

Capcom has done wierd and questionable decisions but never with MonHun.

At most we'll get a multiplat with switch/ps4, but i can see MH5 on 3DS/switch.

My money is on them releasing it exclusive on switch and keep the partnership with nintendo.

When are we expecting news? TGS?

Lets not get this twisted. Uncharted 4 was a major bundled game for the PS4 in the US. The premier bundle infact during the holidays and NPD does not include bundled games in their software charts. Uncharted 4 would easily surpass DS3 if they were to take bundles into account.

I understand why they don't but this isn't U4 underperforming as an exclusive. It's just you ignoring why its missing from the charts.

Dude I've been browsing MC threads for years now. I know how quick people to dismiss western/digital sales around here.

Just go back and look how people were celebrating Typo 0 and FF XV "low " Japanese sales when in reality both titles exceeded SE's expectations (largely thanks to western sales).

I used to not think about it much but after FF XV it was clear to me that a large number of posters here have something against PS4 3rd party titles.

So Final fantasy XV sells multiple millions in the west? What does this prove? FF series has console pedigree, so it doing well worldwide is not much of a surprise.

No-one has an agenda against PS4 here.

Nobody has anything against PS4 3rd party games. This is the first time I've ever heard that. You're just creating your own narrative.

In Japan FFXV sales are the lowest for a mainline FF game since FFIII.
If you think FFXV being on PS4 is what really influence people judgement in here, think again.

There's no reason for release a PS4 or Switch exclusive on Japan right now and I think Capcom will do this with MH 5. Unless Nintendo or Sony help her ($$$) in the development

And I don't understand why there's some people here who want the game to be exclusive

This is a battle you are not going to win lol. Just sit back and enjoy the meltdowns when the game is announced for PS4 as well as 3ds/switch.

Games like nier, nioh, persona 5 have shown that there is a sizable audience that is willing to buy good Japanese games. Dark souls is another big one. I don't understand why people have an issue if capcom tries to capture that audience with a well made game. Companies need to take risks and expand their brand. Could it fail? Sure, but you have to try and PS4 worldwide market and appeal cannot be ignored. Obviously they need the 3ds/switch to play it safe in the home market. People arguing for the game to be exclusive on either side are just being blind fanboys.

There was some involvement from Nintendo to get MH4 exclusively on 3DS so that opens two scenarios:

a) Nintendo tries it again, Capcom likes the deal and MH stays as exclusive.

b) Nintendo doesn't try or Capcom thinks going multi platform is a better course of action for the franchise.

I could see it going either way really.

Naw. FF15 just has one of the most ridiculous announcement to release cycles in history. And its one of the worst selling FF mainline games. It's not really a conspiracy theory man.

As for MH5, the reason why there is discussions about platforms and multiplat etc etc is basically because;

1) Capcom saying they wanna grow the series and handhelds lack popularity in the West
2) Nintendo being a huge partner in growing the series in the West and Capcom leaving that if they go multiplat
3) Rumours of MH coming to PS platforms in some form and that specific rumour about Sony giving the bag of money for MH5 on PS4/not on Switch
4) When you sell 4 million units in Japan and the PS4 has no million sellers it's insane ton make an exclusive for it.

You look at these points. Of course this is a huge topic of discussion. MH is a huge franchise.

Ryusoffice Corporation, the company that registered the RPG.jp domain name for Atlus, registered several Persona-related domain names on April 18.

The list of newly registered domains include:

P3D.jp (Persona 3 Dancing?)
P5AG.jp (Persona 5 A…fter Golden?)
P5D.jp (Persona 5 Dancing?)
P5R.jp (Persona 5 R…acing?)
P5U.jp (Persona 5 Ultimax / Persona 5 Arena?)
Persona-Dance.jp (Persona Dancing portal site?)
PQ2.jp (Persona Q: Shadows of the Labyrinth 2?)

It begins.

It's Persona, so it shouldn't take five years for it to come out worldwide like Etrian Odyssey V which I'm still waiting on.

Capcom should just split MH into two series: a home console series and a portable series.

I used to not think about it much but after FF XV it was clear to me that a large number of posters here have something against PS4 3rd party titles.

We've all seen it. I remember when Asian sales were treated as a joke, or even western sales of some of these niche Japanese games, until we got sales data from publishers. Oh and when some were constantly questioning why PS4 was getting third party titles, thinking PS4's audience was not receptive to Japanese games WW. But we all make mistakes and misconceptions, its part of the fun in these threads.

MH is on 3DS since 2011, do you think the discussion ended all these years? Vita and PS4 were present at every announcement.

Oh wait I forgot that this is the Media Create thread where everything is decided by the Japanese market performance and western/digital sales have absolutely no weight whatsoever in companies investment decisions.

Man this is a condescending post. Of course we mostly take into account Japanese sales in a Japanese sales thread. Resident Evil 7 underperformed massively and so did Final Fantasy XV in Japan, thankfully those are more global IPs than Monster Hunter and the West was able to salvage them. Monster Hunter doesn't have that same crutch if it underperforms in Japan. If sales go down in Japan, sales will go down world wide.

I'm not sure if I see massive growth in the West for the franchise regardless of what Capcom does.

Why? Why develop different games (which arent even different, it will be almost identical gameplay) on all different platforms when its the same people buying these games anyway? This would piss me off more than their yearly G updates. Don't spread the fans of the series out.

Why not just make the series Multiplat? Especially given they just merged the titles from split to only mainline literally last gen.

The Switch is strong enough that this shouldnt be an issue. A strong Switch version upgraded on PS4/X1/PC will go over fine.

Neither has the Switch
Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't see Monster Hunter selling over 2 mi in any of this consoles (or even less). So that's why I think that Capcom is going multiplat

This or they're gonna release the game to 3DS. Because...why not?

The switch will have a few by it's first year-ish. Even the Wii u managed that.

It popped up in almost EVERY MC weekly thread? I mean, I haven't been that active in the MC threads but I don't remember seeing it happen so often. Not something I'm particularly invested in arguing, just commenting on how it seems to happen every thread now.

The Switch is going to have more million sellers in one caledender year than the PS4 is going to have in its lifetime. Can we not do this?

My list wasn't talking about what I want to happen. It was talking about what is fueling discussion and the reality is an exlcusive MH on PS4 is going to have embarassing sales in comparison to the series standard in Japan. Tri did 1.2 million on Wii. You think MH5 on PS4 has a huge chance of going beyond this?

And yes you are wrong. MH5 on Switch if it were exclusive is going to clear 2 million units easily.

I have no idea what platforms they will pick but what you are arguing is just none sense.

Yea, people were clamoring for PS4 port back in 2011 when the system wasn't even announced....

It looks like switch is taking the place of vita/PS4 for a lot of announcements going forward and we are going to see a lot of "why not switch" posts and "x" company is dumb ( this is happening already but will only get worse)

Pokemon Stars (we all know its real)

The only million sellers on the PS4 are going to be DQ11 and FF15 (more or less a million seller)

Maybe Mario Odyssey depending on the userbase at the time of its release and if it experiences the same renaissance in Japan as BotW did.

Oh. It's the "3DS is holding MH back. It looks meh on the damn thing. Capcom, pls. Put it on the PS4/PS4 Pro™. It'll look great and then I can laugh at the Nintendo Fanboys" thing again.
I reckon the next instalment will be Switch & PS4. But I expect Capcom to Capcom it and announce it for the 3DS & PS4. ⚆ _ ⚆

If it has to be combined then it doesn't count as a Switch million seller :p

They were clamoring for a Vita port. It was bad. Really bad.

But that actually made more sense at the time than the current discussion because Vita is a portable and MonHon had been a massive success on the PSP.

Plus there was that tease by Capcom at the NGP conference when they showed P3rd running on the system.

Sony must have really pissed off Ryozo Tsujimoto something fierce.

You mean PS4 will get at least 2 million sellers. FFXV is practically there (with digital it should have been for a while) and DQXI will outsell FFXV.

FFVIIR has a very good chance to outsell both XV and DQXI. If remakes to mainline DQ games that sold 3~4 million can sell 700k~2 million, surely a remake of a 4 million selling FF can sell over a million. VII and Cloud are the most popular Final Fantasy properties.

And with the series format we'll get at least a full game worth of time with Aerith. The next best thing to reviving her is to lengthen the time you can spend with her.

I don't disagree but those DQ remakes were on the most popular hardware on the market.

I dont think dq11 will outsell ffxv because its sales are split 3 ways, i dont think ffvii will because its multiple games and its an action rpg.

Could be wrong though of course.
