Thanks, Zephon, for the heads up...
If you're interested in seeing Monster Hunter return to Playstation, head over to Capcom-Unity and fill out their Monster Hunter survey... I suggest everyone who wants to see MH spread in the West post this questionnaire where you know MH fans congregate.
This is what I put, just out of interest:
1. What Monster Hunter games have you played?
Monster Hunter Freedom
Monster Hunter Freedom 2
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
Monster Hunter Tri (3)
2. What is your favorite Monster Hunter game?
Monster Hunter Tri (3)
3. Regarding question 2, why is that your favorite Monster Hunter game?
Because it is not on a handheld, but is more advanced than the first Monster Hunter, and has right-stick camera control as well as inbuilt online facilities.
4. What was your first Monster Hunter game?
5. What is your favorite monster? Please list only one.
6. What monster would you like to see return to the series that was not in Monster Hunter Tri? Please list only one.
7. What multiplayer modes have you played in Monster Hunter?
Adhoc Party (via PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Network)
Xlink Kia (PC/Mac software)
Monster Hunter (PS2)
Monster Hunter Tri (Wii)
8. If you have not played Monster Hunter multiplayer, please tell us why you have not.
9. What platform would you like to see Monster Hunter on?
10. How did you first get interested in Monster Hunter?
A friend recommended it.
11. What part of Monster Hunter got you "hooked?"
The online social and the equipement collection aspects.
12. Have you ever persuaded a friend to buy Monster Hunter?
13. What do you think is the best way to introduce a new player to the fun of Monster Hunter?
Show them the ropes via multiplayer once they have the game. Explain how deep and engrossing it is before they have it.
14. Do you think it's possible to "get" MH (or get excited about it) in your first 10-15 minutes? Why or why not?
No. It's a very slow game. It's essentially a game of 2 halves. The first half is gathering and learning the lie of the maps and village. The second half is the meat of the game with hunting and making equipment.
15. What Japanese Monster Hunter titles that have not been localized for the west are you most interested in?
Monster Hunter Frontier (PC and Xbox 360)
Monster Hunter Portable 3rd (PSP)
16. What cross-over would you like to see in Monster Hunter? (eg, Mega Man)
17. How important is Online Multiplayer for Monster Hunter?
18. How important is Voice Chat for Monster Hunter?
19. How important is screenshot or video capture functionality to Monster Hunter?
20. How important is custom quest creation functionality to Monster Hunter?
21. If you could add one feature to Monster Hunter, what would it be? Please list only one.
Screen/video capture. It's not necessary but would be very, very nice.
Solved! Go to Solution.

To my mind, it means at least someone at Capcom is putting together a business case for it
But it's a long way from business case to market product...

This is true. Hopefully we might see something announced at E3 in June or maybe at Gamescom in August.
I might just mess in my pants if that happens.
Just a little...
(I don't know why I needed to accept a solution for this thread - I guess I created it wrong. Oh well - solved. Yay )
