So far it's on par with Portable 3rd

with a way larger installed base, though.

I'm pretty sure the PSP had a larger install base by the time Portable 3rd came out.
Abriael  +   875d ago
you're actually quite right. I always forget how much the PSP sold in Japan

This and pokemon next month, the 3ds will catch on fire in Japan!!!

Securing MH4 was probably the smartest thing Nintendo done in a while.

Hopefully this means an NA release.

I wished for a next gen experience of the Monster hunter franchise .. how long are they gonna rehash the same textures with just minor polishing and added content ?

I'm not even talking about PS4 or Xbox1,I want a TRUE next gen Monster Hunter on the Wii U made from the ground up on it,not another portable or last gen game with added HD and outdated textures -_- !

Is that Too much to ask out of you ... Capcom !?

I can see where you're coming from, but I skipped the most recent monster hunter due to the lack of online on the 3ds. So I dunno, I'm in no hurry.

Poor Vita =(

Good 3DS games =/= no Vita games.
PSNintyGamer  +   875d ago
I'm pretty sure he meant 'sales'.
Beetey  +   875d ago
@PSNintyGamer My statement is still applicable since...

Good/more games = More sales
