PS3 Monster Hunter 3 cut due to high dev costs

Monster Hunter 3 was originally planned as a PS3 exclusive, however this is what Capcom has to say about that. 

Due to high development cost of titles for PS3, we have decided to switch the platform to which we release our Monster Hunter 3 title

While Monster Hunter has never done well in the Western World it does have quite a huge following in Japan, which is a lot more important to Sony than it is to Microsoft. Mainly because Microsoft has the US pretty much sewn up.

So where is Monster Hunter going? To the Nintendo Wii obviously… This is what starts to happen when you competition is outselling you 5:1 over the entire year.

Games Sony… We want games..

    I think Sony has to officialy apologise to Ninty for calling the Wii non-sense. Its whooping the BR beast so badly in own home turf it aint even funny!

    Well if you look at the games attach rate of the PS3, it’s supprising that not more developers are doing this.

    Thats what happens when a studio does not want to spend big and and wants to maximize its profits. The Wii is using last gen hardware, thats why it is easier to develop for.

    Howcome they release their portable stuff on PSP instead of DS when DS is outselling the PSP?

    Think about it….

    >>Howcome they release their portable stuff on PSP instead of DS when DS is outselling the PSP?

    ok, i’ve thought about it…
    PSP – like the PS2 with some contraints (slower clocked processor, less one analog stick)
    DS – apparently also easy and cost effective to develop for.
    I have no idea why Capcom chose PSP over DS for the first 2 monster hunter games.
