And they said that a Monster Hunter game which is not on a Nintendo console wouldn't sell. xD

It was a great move from Capcom to bring this game back to Playstation! Amazing sales!

Indeed it was a brilliant move. Even considering NSW success now, back then, it was the best and maybe only move to keep the franchise going.

Hearing some Nintendo fans saying that the game would fail while trying to explain multiple times that the game had a lot of potential was tough. After the game's success when I pointed out this fact I had to hear how they hated the game. After that I keep staying away from Nintendo fans. I don't mean to upset any Nintendo fan nor trying to generalise it, just sharing my experience.

I know exactly what you mean. From my experience on this site and other gaming forums I came to the conclusion that a part of Nintendo's fanbase belongs to the worst fans of the gaming community.

No one is jabbing at Nintendo, they are jabbing at Nintendo fans who thought MH can only be successful on Nintendo hardware despite its past success on PlayStation.

Its a fair jab.

I don't think Capcom will see this nor will they care, they are getting more than what they bargained for here. For me personally, I double dip when its a really good game. For GTA 5 I triple dipped, PS3, PS4 and PC. I'll do the same for RDR 2 when it releases on PC.

Really, such fans existed? Is that for real or are these crazy fans made up? Or more likely, were there one or two of fans making such statements?

I don't know whether you're being sarcastic or if you got upset or if I did something wrong.



God bless You.

Not sure, but taking his words at face value shows he wasn't paying attention at all when World was announced.

But I wrote on my post " I don't mean to upset any Nintendo fan nor trying to generalise it, just sharing my experience."

Back then when the game was announced, Nintendo fans and MH players that I know said to my face: "the game will utterly fail on PS4". I replied it to Dr.Vita since I guess he had the same experience. When I read his post I thought "hell yeah I had to hear that too, that the game would fail on PS4"..

Didn't you predict it's failure?

Then you're lying or trolling, because the only similarities between these games are that they are third person fantasy games. They aren't even the same levels of fantasy (Low Fantasy in MHW vs High Fantasy in BotW).

OK, Have you even played them?

1. Both 3rd Person

2. Both Fantasy

3. Both have hunting mechanics 

4. Both have large creatures (Hilnox/stone and monsters)

5. Both have armors/weapons that can be changed

6. Both overworld

7. Both have a natural outdoor landscape

.... I could go on and on and on, but it should be pretty obvious that MHW is a Zelda clone. And that doesnt mean it's bad. Okami is considered a zelda "clone" and it's still a great game. IMO MHW is a bit more blatant of a clone, but still good.

The Monster Hunter series had hunting mechanics over a decade before Breath of the Wild came out.
Actually it had all the things you listed, long before Breath of the Wild.
I'm pretty sure none of them copied each other to any significant degree.

Back then, as a Nintendo and MonHun fan I was kinda pissed that MHW missed the Switch. But after I cleared my mind about, I was pretty clear, that I see no reason for this to fail horribly. It was likely that MHW would be bigger in the west, simply because Capcom started to care. The 3DS-titles were late if at all localized, with MHW this was obviously different and they also made a marketing push for the west. So it was clear MHW would grow in the west. For Japan Playstation fans expected a strong drop in sales. I remember in the thread about it, I argued against Playstation fans, that in no way MHW would sell that bad in Japan.

You tell me... In the thread about Japan, the PS-fans were the one declaring one million or 1.5 million would be a great success. They didn't really believe MHW had 2M and more in it (for Japan specifically). As I said, at first I was bummed out that this wasn't coming to Switch and it influenced my expectations. As my mind cleared I expected good sales, as show these posts. I didn't gave any prediction, as I couldn't, but I was not decrying decline. In the contrary, in the japan-sales thread it were the PS-fans that expected low sales in Japan. But the revised history claims the Nintendo fans were the one seeing it crash and burn.

EDIT: Actually I just saw, that you were among the people expecting its failure in japan: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8699738
