Yeah, I'm not going to repeat myself over and over. Honestly, i'm supposed to be the one who A: leaves long ass responses and calls other fanatical and B: gets very defensive and sidesteps with more nonsense (backing up nonsense). Have fun shouting and listening to others say the same to you, not going to waste any more time.
k thx bye.
At least I dont have to keep hearing your belief in fiction anymore.
=p Not sure how you can defend Capcom this much. Capcom always have deals with somehow, A Dead Rising game for Xbox one, A Street Fighter game for Playstation some stay exclusive some are time exclusive. They were very fast porting a Monster Hunter game to the Switch and about MHW they have no interest to port it =p? They could have said like SE(DQXI) that a port to swith will happen but they didn't sounds rather suspicious =p.
Also want to add if Sony did nothing to stop MHW releasing on Switch...It would have been a big mistake from Sony and I don't believe you think that Sony is that dumb.
Im not defending Capcom. if anything they are the ones wrong in the equation when it comes to their handling of the Switch. And that doesnt make sense either. PS4 sales are tracking ahead of PS3. PS4 is dominating in the West. They have increased presence in Asia. They dont need to prevent a Switch release since their JPN sales are actually healthy for a console only device, and MH Switch is not going to tank that any time soon.
About the other games, it could very well have been that Capcom wasnt unsure that the Switch would suceed worldwide.Thats fair.But MH is sinonimous with Nintendo, and since the Switch is a hybrid(so part handheld), it was obvious that it would have been a sucess in Japan.And a good chunk of the MH audience is a handheld lover, or at least prefers handheld over the console version(since MH always sold much better on handhelds).Which begs the question:Why NOT make a Switch version, at the very least on Japan?That port would easily offset the cost to make it, even if Capcom had to hire extra personel.
It could very well have been Capcom fault for missing this, because they have had their head up on their ass for quite a while now.Thats unfortunely a real possibility.But Im not discarting that Sony could have very well paid Capcom, given that Capcom makes some stupid decisions sometimes, to make the next MH not release on Nintendo, since it would obviously hurt its competitor(Nintendo) and be a boon for the PS4 in Japan.And plus the leaker being really trustworthy as of now.
True, MH is synonmous with NIntendo these days. But before that, it was with Playstation. And I agree, why not a Switch version. But the Switch is only 6 months old. When MHW releases, it wont even be a year old. If we can agree that Capcom may have been unsure of Switch performance, and that MHW has been in development for a few years before the Switch revealed, then we can agree that their siding with caution has hurt them.
We can also agree that gearing up for a Switch port of a game still in active development, and without the manpower/ resources to even finish the PC version on time with the console versions, is not something that would be rectified in a coupld of months. If anything, even if they put the Switch version into active development a month after the release of the Switch, there is no way they would be hitting the December release for it in Japan. And this works for them. They can announce and get it out for consoles, and then reannounce it for Switch (with additions) and hit their stronger handheld users (especailly after massing up a larger demographic to sell to).
If anything I think there are enough reasons to show that Capcom has just read the market incorrectly. How does Sony get exclusitivty for SF (coming off a 8 million selling SF4) which sold well WW, but only claims JPN exclusitivity (for a game that sells well in JPN and not so much anywhere else)? Sony would easily have just bought exclusitivity straight out since it couldnt have cost that much more to disclude the X1 from a region that MH doesnt have the same presence, and because that is what Sony would do: get full exclusitivity. What presedent is there for them to go exclusive for only a single region?
Im willing to believe this theory if we had something else to go on except the words of a 4chan leaker. But thats just me.
