Monster Hunter World is still at the top of Japanese software sales, accompanied by the PS4, also bolstered by Dynasty Warriors 9 and Sword Art Online.
PS4 and Switch are performing extremely well in Japan Xbox One didn’t even manage to sell over 300 units that week in the region
Xbox doesn't have much to offer anybody outside of the US (they seem to be the main group that's fixated on racing games and dudebro shooters) so of course it won't sell well anywhere else, it was tailored to their own demographic.
You are 100% correct
"Xbox One didn’t even manage to sell over 300 units that week in the region" Xbox won't ever do well in Japan
Xbox shouldn't even be in the conversation when it comes to sales in Japan.
In a few weeks MHW should reach 2 million sold physical only. Fifth week in a row PS4 on top. PS4 leads Switch by over 140k YTD.
Yes, both great consoles. Happy for both companies and happy to be a gamer right now. Just wish I had more time...
Nice deflection lol.
@Dragonscale Slapped it down like a mosquito.
Colossus with Wanda @ #5 though...LOL
Monster Hunter rolling along nicely. Congrats to Splatoon 2 for crossing the 2 million physical mark (impressive feat for a game like that).
Well, i’m Impressed.
Damn Monster Hunter: World has already outsold Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, & Pokémon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon in Japan. It’s even quickly approaching Splatoon 2’s numbers within the region. This game is a beast if I ever saw one, and it’s especially notable because it’s succeeding very well on a non portable device in Japan.
Expected better sales for Shadow of the Colossus tbh. Hope it has long legs
The original came out in 2005 and sold over a million. So yes it has long legs since it's been re-release 13 years later. Not to mention it's been release 3 times http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
It outsold its original release in one week.
I've got about 50 hours in, and it's incredible. So happy Capcom decided to bring the franchise back to home consoles, where it could finally get the recognition it deserved outside Japan.
Best selling MH by a huge margin. MH has returned to its home on PlayStation.
worldwide yes but in Japan no. MH World only out did MHXX in Japan as far as first week goes. It did less than 4, 4 Ultimate and X.
Very rare to find a game that live it’s expectation! Well done!
I love how this game doesn't ever really have off hours on PS4. I can get on at 3am and get a full party of Japanese players within seconds.
The lobbies are always full,making farming a breeze.
Seems Japanese gamers finally said fk portability games for now MH is back & it's on!!
I thought about this the other day, but how could one even go back to the old ones after playing MHW? Makes you realize Capcom has been dragging MH through the mud for years. So glad they turned things around with MHW.
Switch is still doing really well despite no killer games yet. Kirby is the next big game. So sales will average 40-60k from here on out til probably Fire Emblem or Project Octopath or next big exclusive.
Did anyone doubt it would? Good to see a healthy gaming market
