Monster Hunter Portable 2G delivers a monstrous opening day. The previous installment was only 512k first day. Of the 670k, 17k were the bundled version, so expect a good rise in the PSP numbers for the upcoming week.
really amazing. the psp sure has got some longs like her old sisters.
i meant legs.great staying power. it only proves the point that playstations are marathon runners, which thrive in the waiting game and long term.
Based on these sales the developer needs to reconsider Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii and make it exclusively for the Sony Computer Entertainment PlayStation 3.
Are you serious? Wii has biggest install base in Japan, and lol dude they are most likely deep in development, so lets cancel it! LOL brain of fanboy
yea dude the sales for the wii monster hunter will absolutely destroy these sales.
Japanese are idiots, i dont care what people are gonna say. Or at least their market is dieing. same updated crap sells, but so many incredible western games cant brake 100k, not even 50k in most cases. If makers of this game are smart, they should release next year Monster Hunter 2D and sell again this many. Jesus....
i disagree that monster hunter is crap. but i agree with you when you say that great western games don't sell in japan.
Monster Hunter is not crap, but it is CRAP that same updated game...an expansion sells this much. its ludicrous! It is basically 90% same game
far from being idiots.they have different tastes,that's all. if you don't like something,you don't buy it.but it's true that protectionism still lingers in this part of the world.the market has to adapt,not the customers.
Harry, yeah sure, i am also adapting. Like not buying any Japanese games at all. Why? Well i dont like those games, i just prefer good western games. Now you are going to say "good game is a good game no matter from where it comes from", sure it is. Tell that you your Japanese friends, until then, only western "crap" for me and my PS3.
Japanese are idiots because they like Monster Hunter? So....do they think we're idiots cause America(excluding myself), like Halo? Different cultures like different genres.....
that i never did.western game are not crap. but your comments seem to contain some elements of xenophobia just now.i doubt a sane individual would boycott a good product from a foreign country. western games are not crap,they just don't correspond to what japanese gamers expect from a game,now if you want to believe that japan is impervious to quality western titles, you are ignoring the facts and figures,if you think they are stupid, good for you.they might just feel the same way about people who buy western products.
So, this guy says japanese buy japanese games and western people buy western games. Get this guy an award or something, he's freakin genius.
Iamback - Crap updated game, like 'Halo 3' not even a true nex gen update.
Lol, you're so clever.
Marty, you are aware that i am Sony fan?
You know, i was recently looking through my game collection and i realised that i own every single Monster Hunter game. And i do not know why the hell i do. I mean they're pretty cool games, but im not particularly a huge fan of them or anything. My first Monster Hunter on psp was great though, i loved that. The graphics are great too. I also get to a certain points in the games and stop to never play it again. Like in Monster Hunter 2, i got as far as creating my character and i haven't played it since lol. Dunno what it is about this series, but i do like it
If you really are a fan of the series like you say, then getting MH3 is a no-brainer.
but when you buy a game, play it for one hour and never play it again, i don't think that warrents buying another one in the series. Their cool and all, i enjoyed the first one on psp, but,...you know. Besides im not buying a brand new console just for one game i'll barely play, because i know that's what you were implying
Your initial comment made it sound like you played the games for a fair amount of time, just never finished them. If that's truly not the case, then I agree that MH3 definitely shouldn't be the reason to buy a new console.
lol just kidding.
but if people are going to keep calling GT5P a demo then ever game that comes out with a SE , DC or remake is in the same boat.
oh what was we talking about again?
Biggest Debut of the year! PSP is kicking right now....
this game would be a much better fit on the ps3 since it actually has a network when compare to the wii, also graphics here would probably be at a premium all depending on capcom's efforts, online is free and sony's got the whole 4 c's thing going on which would only make a lot of sense for capcom to just bring it to the ps3, but of course in my opinion capcom has never been a true sony backer for any of their platforms all they ever give us is countless remakes and bad ports, again thats my personal opinion so don't go trashing me on this. also i do realize the wii has a bigger user base, but honestly when games like yakuza 3 prove other wise with its sales the only thing that comes to my mind is capcom's salary and what they want or cant afford to spend on a project to a certain console which might cost them a lot to make a game on. its simple the wii is extremely cheap to develop for, therefore the risk isn't even noticeable at times but the ps3 to them might take ages to work on and since they have prove to me to be like laze like EA, they would say to themselves why bother. but to me it sounds as if, the ps3 was of course the original intended console for this project not the wii, capcom has lost all its respects from me, first devil may cry, now this? thank god i haven't bought one of there games in ages, the only thing ill buy from them is something with street fighter label on it. and its not that i wont buy there games cuz they aren't exclusive to sony, its because i know they like EA aren't trying anymore. SO WHY SHOULD I BUY ANY OF THEIR PRODUCTS? man o man where are your financial balls at? capcom you have to be more like squarenix or konami and learn how to stand by your product and take risks.
Jesus christ. Japan really loves their Monster Hunter. The same cannot be said about the US.
i LOVE MH
Hot damn, Capcom give me HD Monster Hunter with online play for PS3 plz.
