i meant legs.great staying power.
it only proves the point that playstations are marathon runners,
which thrive in the waiting game and long term.

Based on these sales the developer needs to reconsider Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii and make it exclusively for the Sony Computer Entertainment PlayStation 3.

Iamback5730d ago

Are you serious? Wii has biggest install base in Japan, and lol dude they are most likely deep in development, so lets cancel it! LOL brain of fanboy

socomnick5730d ago

yea dude the sales for the wii monster hunter will absolutely destroy these sales.

Iamback5730d ago

Japanese are idiots, i dont care what people are gonna say. Or at least their market is dieing. same updated crap sells, but so many incredible western games cant brake 100k, not even 50k in most cases.
If makers of this game are smart, they should release next year Monster Hunter 2D and sell again this many.

mariusmal5730d ago

i disagree that monster hunter is crap. but i agree with you when you say that great western games don't sell in japan.

Iamback5730d ago

Monster Hunter is not crap, but it is CRAP that same updated game...an expansion sells this much. its ludicrous! It is basically 90% same game

Harry1905730d ago

far from being idiots.they have different tastes,that's all.
if you don't like something,you don't buy it.but it's true that protectionism still lingers in this part of the world.the market has to adapt,not the customers.

Iamback5730d ago

Harry, yeah sure, i am also adapting. Like not buying any Japanese games at all. Why? Well i dont like those games, i just prefer good western games. Now you are going to say "good game is a good game no matter from where it comes from", sure it is. Tell that you your Japanese friends, until then, only western "crap" for me and my PS3.

gEnKiE5730d ago

Japanese are idiots because they like Monster Hunter? So....do they think we're idiots cause America(excluding myself), like Halo? Different cultures like different genres.....

Harry1905730d ago

that i never did.western game are not crap.
but your comments seem to contain some elements of
xenophobia just now.i doubt a sane individual
would boycott a good product from a foreign country.
western games are not crap,they just don't correspond to
what japanese gamers expect from a game,now if you want
to believe that japan is impervious to quality western titles,
you are ignoring the facts and figures,if you think they are stupid,
good for you.they might just feel the same way about people who buy western products.

deeznuts5730d ago

So, this guy says japanese buy japanese games and western people buy western games. Get this guy an award or something, he's freakin genius.
