Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a game that I was readily looking forward to. Then the news of no cross-region online multiplayer, and even worse, no Off-TV play, made me push this back from a day one purchase to a game that I'll get "eventually". Let me put this into perspective for you: I could not fully enjoy the newest outing in one of my favourite series because my TV was too old and too small. My old, 4:3 480i television could not properly display the 16:9 1080p visuals of the game, as the display for the screen would become incredibly small, and most text would become entirely illegible.
No longer is this the case. Capcom has confirmed that a patch in April will add both Off-TV play and cross-region online multiplayer. Naturally as the patch will be coming after the game's release, this does not push Monster Hunter back up to a day one purchase, but I will definitely be getting it sometime around when the patch is released.
