I own every console out there, i'm not a ds or a psp fan but it's the game that sells not ds.
Do you actually believe that on psp would sell less? Monster hunter series proves psp's pontential. Some games are just system sellers. And the only reason i prefer DQ on psp is because of it's bigger screen and better graphics.

5M Global scale wise or just Japan? Global wise I'm sure it'll happen no problem, but Japan only is a bit of a stretch. The only way it'll have a big boost of sales to reach that is if winter '09 it was one of the only games Japan wanted still. However, they get FF13 this winter and most Japanese gamers will be buying PS3s + that game so their wallets will be thin.

I'm def. gonna buy this game though when it comes stateside, but I'm more looking forward to Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days next month from Square's line up this year.
