NPD Group has released an expanding listing of the top 20 sales for the April 2010 NPD sales data.
This pretty much confirms that Monster Hunter Tri did in fact sell 126,000 units.
Snubbed by Wii Fit Plus:P
i cant believe GOW3 is still selling with strong numbers too good for Sony and SM
Traditionally most Wii titles are slow burners. Wait two months and see if Monster Hunter Tri can stay consistently in the Top 20, if it can't its a miss but if it can its a hit.
Monster Hunter Tri sold more than enough in Japan alone. Poor U.S. numbers just means Capcom will likely just keep future Wii releases of the franchise in Japan online.
You do know that this by far the best debut for the franchise right? The other games have under 150K Lifetime sales and this sold 126K in 10 days. It's most likely already the most successful entry in the west. The second biggest debut for the US is Freedon Unite with 67K.
To be honest for a hardcore game like Monster Hunter that's respectable numbers. I haven't picked the game up yet, But I only hear good things so I will have to go and give it a try. Although it's beyond me why the released Tri on the Wii. It's a classic controller only game so it makes no use of the Wii's motion market. I would of released it PS3/360 myself.
Not surprised splinter cell dominated april :P
Seeing it didn't have any competition.
and god of war 3 is still selling Now where those people who said that ps3 gamers don't buy games to point my finger at them and laugh
splinter cell dominated and obliterated the competition in april.......Nice.
it wasn't really that hard April had no AAA games
Super Street Fighter 4 in the top 10 with only 4 days in April, that's really good.
I thought Monster Hunter sales would have been higher o_0 I know its not a well known IP, such as mario, but i thought it would have done better.
Surprised the Splinter Cell numbers aren't higher, I'd have thought with the hype around it and it being one of MS' major exclusives it would have done these mega numbers people like to tell us MS exclusives always do. How many days in the month was Splinter Cell available in the US? Just crossed my mind that may have something to do with it. I would think though that it will do very very well in world wide lifetime sales.
Well it was extremely short. So not many people wanted to fork out $60 for it.
I'm surprised Splinter Cell sold that much. It was a pretty fun game. So it deserves it.
Thats why i didnt buy it and ubisoft was wrong for taking it out
Is still in the top 20 after 6 months on the market. Just shows how great games get overlooked because of some crappy laggy glitch fest 1.5 versions that manage to sell on a name.
Thank goodness, we didn't need another great wii game that not enough peop-le bought. I hear the main reason sales aren't higher is because so many people want the classic controller bundle it's causing shortages. Look at the price of the bundle on amazon... damn!
