Bubbles up for being a moron. :)

On topic: I don't expect Monster Hunter 3 to do very well on the Wii. Apparently the Japanese like their Monster Hunters on the go, on portable consoles.

You missed one:

13: You notice irish-leprecaun has no grasp of grammar or spelling(cant even spell Leprechaun) and does not know the difference between your and you're.

cycik??? To think the site even has a built in spell checker.

- bubbles

because I have seen this splashed all over youtube and other sites. Stop the spam

I have never witnessed a decent article from Examiner... It's always, what game beats another, what is wrong with a certain console, yada yada? Lame...

Sprud3398d ago

You got 6, 8 and 12 wrong :)

Also, it's spelled "you're", not "your"!

FamilyGuy3398d ago

Monster Hunter 3 won't be bigger than FFXIII or the PSP Monster Hunters. FFXIII and the PS3 own this year.

better luck with DQ...

raztad3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

DQ will fare much better, but even so I got the feeling that the Wii fever is just dying. I hope a bump in sales surrounding DQ but then every Wii owner is going to get a PS3 when FFXIII gets released.

Godmars2903398d ago

Except DQ as nothing to do with the Wii; its DSi.

Though there was a Wii off-shoot - DQIX Swords or something with the goth witch - but isn't that already out? Forgotten by me at least.

raztad3398d ago (Edited 3398d ago )

Last December DQ X was announced as an exclusive title for Wii. Both major iterations, IX and X are exclusives on nintendo platform.

N4g_null3398d ago

The fact they even put the two up against each other is hilarious. Man they really need some thing to write about don't they.

Hope fully the PS3 can final get a killer app game that moves systems to the point it can over take the 360 yet the messed up thing is it's coming to the 360 over here and in the uk OUCH.

MH3 only needs to sell to the kids who's moms already bought wii fit and it will have the HD twins beat period.

Narutone663398d ago

too mature for the Wii audience. Better stick to Wii play, Wii fit, Pokemon, etc. which target the younger audiences.

"FF13 Wins Round One Against Monster Hunter 3"

Umm yeah. No sh!t.

Godmars2903398d ago

But since we are talking about relative successes, anyone else starting to think that DQIX is going to be all that? That its not going to dominate Japan.

Swiftfox3398d ago

Actually, I believe that the Dragon Quest series is more popular in Japan than the Final Fantasy series.

I remember reports when Dragon Quest 8 was released of people in Japan skipping work to play it en-mass. It got sevier enough for some companies to take exstreme messures if they found out if you did take work off for Dragon Quest 8.

The difference being that Final Fantasy has world wide popularity so you will always see higher numbers for it.

Godmars2903398d ago

That happened well before 8. Pretty sure its actually illegal to release anything in the series on a workday.

DNAgent3398d ago

Who cares? Both Monster Hunter 3 & FF13 will be garbage anyways. Afterall, you have 2 mediocre companies behind them like Crapcom & Square-Enix.
