The Japan Preview: 3/30 Edition (850k for MHP2G, DS to pass PS2 next week)

VGChartz writes: "Monster Hunter Portable 2 G launched this week in Japan. The game is a follow up to perhaps the defining PSP games in Japan – Monster Hunter Portable and Monster Hunter Portable 2. Like Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII before it, the game was bundled with some PSPs in Japan for its launch. As a result, both PSP hardware and software sales are up this week, with the rest of the market down from last week. Moving forward, the next major release will likely be the new Mario Kart game for Wii."

Key Points:

-After a close call last week on whether DS outsold PSP there should be no doubt that PSP outsold DS this week.
- Monster Hunter Portable 2 G does not look like it significantly boosted other PSP software in the preliminary data despite its strong debut.

Hardware Predicted Totals:

PSP: 70,000 to 100,000 units
DSL: 50,000 to 60,000 units
Wii: 48,000 to 58,000 units
PS3: 11,000 to 19,000 units
PS2: 8,000 to 12,000 units
360: 1,500 to 3,500 range

on PS3 sales especially in EUROPE

and a million units EXAGERRATED on X360 sales.

VG didnt even fix their x360 numbers for OCTOBER,JAN,FEB,NOVEMBER etc

at the same time they are off on PS3 sales in NA by atleast 500k in JAN,FEB,OCTOBER,NOVEMBER and DECEMBER

whats even more shocking is the fact that VG refuted NPD numbers last month

all that you see on VG are guesstimates . They have their man call CYRUS working here who posts these FAKE VG numbers every now and then

I'm a PS3 fanboy and can almost careless if they are million units off because once both systems reach in the 30s a million here or there doesn't really matter. We would still be able to tell who is winning or not.

Lot of people actually believe those VGCRAP numbers

Not to mention that VGCRAP is banned in gamespot/GT/neogaf and PSU forums.

many people could so easily be duped into buying an x360 by these false figures when the actual x360 sales are like 1.5 million short of what VGCRAP is showing. the opposite is true for PS3. The PS3 has overtaken x360 in EUROPE. VG is off on ps3 eu sales by a massive million units. they are off on PS3 NA sales too by atleast 500k units

so in reality PS3 is just 4m behind x360 in worldwide sales when VG shows it to be 6.5m

These VGCRAP numbers are posted by the guy who works for VGCRAP --CYRUS

Looks like the only correct number is 1500 for the 360.

There japan numbers are not usually that bad because they just get the numbers from Famitsu and Media Create. But the US and EU numbers are a complete joke. Time and time again they have underestimated the ps3 in Europe only to look stupid when mcv release the figures for the UK. They still have the ps3 too low. It had sold 10.5 on Jan 01 so it must be 12 million at least.
