After watching the trailer over and over again, I have nothing but high hopes for this game. While Tri was in no means a bad game, it was IMO a step down for the MH series. Underwater combat was lacking something (taken out now fortunetly), some of the new monster designs were poor (I'm looking at you Navaldeus), and while I know they were trying to make something fresh, they took out TOO much, with only 3 monsters from the older generations, sometimes you miss fighting the old guys. MHP3 looks to correct that, with already more of the original monsters (of course that damned Tigrex couldn't go away), most of the positive changes Tri implimented (New weapons/moves, monsters like Agunacotl, Belios, etc.), BALANCING the old and the new, as well as throwing in a couple tricks of its own (Am I the only one who's fallen in love with the new battle theme, especially the bit from 1:40-1:54). But that's just me, what do you guys think?

I'm with ya. I think i was the only person depressed to see the gunlance go. But hell yeah for a new monster hunter on the psp!!! Especially when you consider that the wii game does not really look that much better then unite.
Capcom should just make a constantly expandable version of Monster Hunter like Frontier, but for the PSP and all the expansions are Data Installs from UMD/PSN (which makes high capacity memory sticks a must).
You can back it up on computer with Sony Media Go, but you have to first initially download it onto your PSP either via wifi or through Media Go whilst having your PSP connected via USB cable.
I think it'd be more profitable if they just sold expansions via psn.
e.g 1 new monster $5-10 You get 1 new monster (with 2 colour variants), 2-3 quests from each distinct level, i.e Elder, High Rank, G rank 12-24 (24 if there is a colour variant) weapon branches related to that monster's materials (1 of each type that improves to a final rarity 9/10 weapon) 6-12 (12 if there is a colour variant) armor branches related to that monster's material, i.e 3 blademaster, 3 gunner armor of each rank Elder, High, G 2-3 new gems that cant be crafted from that monster's materials Free quests you can download related to that monster once you have that monster.
1 new map $5-10 You get 1 new map (with a day theme and a night theme), 10-20 quests with monsters you have (default or downoaded) related to that map from each rank i.e Elder, High Rank, G rank hence about 30-60 new quests.
I'd be willing to pay for expansions like this, and this is just PSN expansions, you could buy batch expansions from UMDs for $30
