rant You came first to Monster Hunter. PS2 was the first system it was released on and you have every right to say MH on a console is better and more awesome and lot more balanced and better and this and this and that. Because you played it first and your very first experience came from the PS2.
But, and this but is an IMO backed up by more than 3 million sales in Japan, the game works SO MUCH BETTER on a portable console. I understand that you want originality and balancing over mass of content. But you are the, albeit very loud, minority. I for one want more content. And even more. And I want to play whenever I feel like without limiting my movement between the couch and the fridge.
if they would release MHFU-G with added 200 quests and another batch of 1,000 armors which I never create I would probably die right away. And I want to play whenever I feel like without limiting my movement between the couch and the fridge.
Weapon balance FTL. It is not a competetive game.You are not matched against equally equipped opponents, you fight monsters. Some weapon classes kill faster, the unbalanced ones even more so. And? I never saw the point in tier debates, besides them being funny.
And I want to play whenever I feel like without limiting my movement between the couch and the fridge. /rant
What I want to say is: PSP is arguably the best console system for Monster Hunter. Get over the nostalgic feelings towards the awesome online you had in 2004/2005. I really enjoyed Diablo II in 2000, but Diablo 3 will not renew that or give me that feelings back. Times are a-changing, as Dylan put it.

I agree. I loved MH on the ps2. I bought a PSP just for Monster Hunter, and I have to say, the controls are a lot better on the PSP. The analog stick based controls were horrible, except for gunning. I love that I can go over to a friends house and play and I don't have to lug a console and a tv with me. And did the graphics even change from the PS2 to the PSP version? I for one welcome our portable overlords.
Well it'll be best on PSP until a MH game comes along and it gets integrated with that Project Natal technology (the one with the camera that allows you to interact with games via actions coming to xbox http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oACt9R9z37U), imagine playing MH like that, all the un-fit MH veterans would actually have to shape up in order to be good at playing.
