So far it's on par with Portable 3rd

Abriael3899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

with a way larger installed base, though.

PSNintyGamer3899d ago

I'm pretty sure the PSP had a larger install base by the time Portable 3rd came out.

Abriael3899d ago

you're actually quite right. I always forget how much the PSP sold in Japan

dark-hollow3899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

This and pokemon next month, the 3ds will catch on fire in Japan!!!

Securing MH4 was probably the smartest thing Nintendo done in a while.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3899d ago

Hopefully this means an NA release.

Studio-YaMi3899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

I wished for a next gen experience of the Monster hunter franchise .. how long are they gonna rehash the same textures with just minor polishing and added content ?

I'm not even talking about PS4 or Xbox1,I want a TRUE next gen Monster Hunter on the Wii U made from the ground up on it,not another portable or last gen game with added HD and outdated textures -_- !

Is that Too much to ask out of you ... Capcom !?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3899d ago

I can see where you're coming from, but I skipped the most recent monster hunter due to the lack of online on the 3ds. So I dunno, I'm in no hurry.

Good 3DS games =/= no Vita games.

PSNintyGamer3899d ago

I'm pretty sure he meant 'sales'.

Beetey3899d ago (Edited 3899d ago )

@PSNintyGamer My statement is still applicable since...

Good/more games = More sales

Studio-YaMi3899d ago

We know how much of a Nintendo fanboy you are,so you don't need to be shy about it.

Go full force.

RTheRebel3899d ago

A Nintendo Fanboy that has a PS3 and has a PS4 on preorder?!?hmmmmm makes you wonder huh?

Beetey3899d ago

It's gonna be tough waiting for this to come west. Oh well.

*Goes back to playing MH3U*

Those are really good sales, I hope that means it'll come over faster to the west.

styferion3092d ago

I hope so too, but judging from past titles we'll be waiting for the ultimate version before they decide to localize it.

freshslicepizza3092d ago (Edited 3092d ago )

good to see strong console software sales come out of japan.

Masterchief_thegoat3092d ago

3ds is the best place to play on the go

Guardia3092d ago (Edited 3092d ago )

Yes, That means that One Kid You Knew in Elementary School's uncle at Nintendo will still have a job! ;)
