Monster Hunter 3 is still in development and has yet to be released, but that isn’t stopping the announcement of another Monster Hunter title that will end up on Wii. According to the latest edition of Famitsu, Monster Hunter G will be heading to the Wii. The game originally was released on the PS2 and then moved to the PSP for a European and North American release. Monster Hunter G marks the second time a game in the series will launch on a Nintendo platform. We’ll have more news as it becomes available.

“MotoGP. Neopets Puzzle Adventure. Dead Rising Wii. Spyborgs. [They] are all coming in 2009. Beyond that, we have a few other tricks up our sleeves I can’t talk about yet.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

I wonder how many Wii titles we’ll see from Capcom in 2009. More ports might be realistic, but perhaps the company has moved on to original titles. Anyone want to take a guess?

Numerous celebrities have expressed their interest in Nintendo’s white console before, but at the opposite end of the spectrum, some stars simply aren’t interested. Two members of G-Unit – Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks admitted today that they don’t own a Wii.

Tony Yayo said, “I got an Xbox 360, I got the regular green Xbox, I got PlayStation 3. I had a Wii, but I gave it away. No disrespect, it just wasn’t my thing…I had one game on the Wii where you had a motorcycle and one hand was the steering and the other hand was, like, two guns or something. But I really wasn’t into the graphics. I think a lot of people like to play it, but I just don’t like the graphics. The graphics is everything to me! It’s like when we used to play Nintendo and Genesis. You see the difference between, like, Duck Hunt and now. I mean, come on, bro. I’m sorry…I love good graphics, I really do. With that said, someone that says that graphics are the end-all-be-all doesn’t really understand the industry, or the point of gaming. I am glad they partake in some of what the industry has to offer, and I respect their choices. I just can’t agree with them 100%.”

Yayo’s justification is fairly understandable I suppose (if you care about graphics that much). I even admit that graphics are a very important aspect about a game, but it does not ultimately determine a game purchase for me. Besides, Super Mario Galaxy doesn’t look that terrible.

And what about Lloyd Banks? He said, “Man, I ain’t got no Wii either.” I just wonder if it’s for the same reason that Yayo mentions.

On Saturday, we reported that, according to The Sun, 10 people were being hospitalized from Wii play. However, the initial doctor mentioned in The Sun article has clarified his words and mentions that “the quote about 10 people admitted to hospital” is not actually true.

“I have seen a few injuries related to patients using the Wii. I do NOT think its anything to do with the Wii itself, but rather the player over using the device. There is no epidemic- I used to see 3 or 4 injuries and over the last few months there have been 7 to 10. The quote about 10 people admitted to hospital is INCORRECT. 10 people have been seen recently in hospital clinics is the fact. Broomfield (hospital) doesn’t keep specific Wii stats, but we do have soft tissue rheumatism stats under which this type of injury belongs, and we haven’t seen a great rise.” – Dr. Dev Mukerjee, of Broomfield Hospital
