Media Create has published the latest hardware sales from Japan. PSP once again sees a humongous increase this week.
Geez look at the psp!! It sold more then Double all the others COMBINED!
The new PSP(-4000) bundled with Monster Hunter 3rd effect i say
And pachter thinks psp2 will be dead on arrival. Pachters an idiot I'd say
The PSP has always done well in Japan, its everywhere else in the world where its a non-issue.
f*ck pachter.tired of that idiot.he seems to be a plant. no other analyst out there but him.and he downplays sony systems A LOT.why is that?
What does this post have to do w/ Pach?
wow the psp did amazing numbers, thanks to monster hunter. The ps3 needs monster hunter, that would also seriously boost the ps3 numbers. Well the kinect effect didn't last long in japan, oh well its doing well in other countries though.
Indeed, but it seems like than, for Capcom at least, 2 fucking million sales in the first week at Japan, where games are more expensive, isn't ENOUGH to fund off a PS3 MH. ...I hate Capcom.
I bet they're tied with a deal with Nintendo. I'm soooooo pissed at Capcom for not realising a Monster Hunter game for the PS3 when the franchise and the fan base started with the PS2. I would have been fine with the Wii version but to ignore making a PS3 version is just plain wrong.
What's wrong with the monster hunter on the wii? Guess owning multiple consoles can be considered a plus "I would have been fine with the Wii version but to ignore making a PS3 version is just plain wrong. " That's the spirit
Don't see why Capcom doesn't either make a Monster Hunter specific handheld, or just a PS3 game. Though I guess the latter would require more work.
*spits out coffee*
A bit like this http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Them psp units are insane for a weekly amount man they love there handhelds over there!
Japan just loves their portables because they like to travel playing their games. I definitely agree that pachter will eat those words when the psp2 arrives. Also remember japan always loves new tech especially when there portable so 3ds & psp2 will definitely have a market in japan alone even if they didnt do well in other countries. I think kinect sales wasnt really big in japan because like many said it really isnt anything new besides the 3d space but japan prolly looks at as a more advanced eyetoy. If ms wants it to sell in japan, they will have to put their money in the software department for kinect & create games catered to the japanese which u cant play using any other device. That will help spark future sales of kinect. Damn but the psp is doing monster numbers & the ps3 in 2 weeks has sold 100,000+ units thanx to gt5. Wow and the wii is doing great aswell. Good all around sales except the 360 but thats nothing new in japan.
whoah the psp is doing great wasnt expecting those numbers
Where are all the PSP doom prophets from a couple of months back now?
DAMMMMM ..check out psp
wow PSP owned
PSP is pretty much dead in America and europe. Its kinda like dragon warrior. GREAT in japan....crap elsewhere. Its a shame, it had some promise.
