The battle for sales between Final Fantasy XIII (exclusive to PS3 in Japan) and Monster Hunter 3 (exclusive to Wii) may be already decided. The Final Fantasy XIII demo outsold the Monster Hunter 3 demo by more than two times.

Bubbles up for being a moron. :) On topic: I don't expect Monster Hunter 3 to do very well on the Wii. Apparently the Japanese like their Monster Hunters on the go, on portable consoles.
You missed one: 13: You notice irish-leprecaun has no grasp of grammar or spelling(cant even spell Leprechaun) and does not know the difference between your and you're. cycik??? To think the site even has a built in spell checker. =)
at least he is funny (sometimes) and not offensive!
- bubbles because I have seen this splashed all over youtube and other sites. Stop the spam
I have never witnessed a decent article from Examiner... It's always, what game beats another, what is wrong with a certain console, yada yada? Lame...
You got 6, 8 and 12 wrong :) Also, it's spelled "you're", not "your"!
but I noticed that 9 was missing.
Monster Hunter 3 won't be bigger than FFXIII or the PSP Monster Hunters. FFXIII and the PS3 own this year. better luck with DQ...
DQ will fare much better, but even so I got the feeling that the Wii fever is just dying. I hope a bump in sales surrounding DQ but then every Wii owner is going to get a PS3 when FFXIII gets released.
Except DQ as nothing to do with the Wii; its DSi. Though there was a Wii off-shoot - DQIX Swords or something with the goth witch - but isn't that already out? Forgotten by me at least.
Last December DQ X was announced as an exclusive title for Wii. Both major iterations, IX and X are exclusives on nintendo platform.
The fact they even put the two up against each other is hilarious. Man they really need some thing to write about don't they. Hope fully the PS3 can final get a killer app game that moves systems to the point it can over take the 360 yet the messed up thing is it's coming to the 360 over here and in the uk OUCH. MH3 only needs to sell to the kids who's moms already bought wii fit and it will have the HD twins beat period.
too mature for the Wii audience. Better stick to Wii play, Wii fit, Pokemon, etc. which target the younger audiences.
"FF13 Wins Round One Against Monster Hunter 3" Umm yeah. No sh!t.
mi oul flower!!
But since we are talking about relative successes, anyone else starting to think that DQIX is going to be all that? That its not going to dominate Japan.
Actually, I believe that the Dragon Quest series is more popular in Japan than the Final Fantasy series. I remember reports when Dragon Quest 8 was released of people in Japan skipping work to play it en-mass. It got sevier enough for some companies to take exstreme messures if they found out if you did take work off for Dragon Quest 8. The difference being that Final Fantasy has world wide popularity so you will always see higher numbers for it.
That happened well before 8. Pretty sure its actually illegal to release anything in the series on a workday.
Who cares? Both Monster Hunter 3 & FF13 will be garbage anyways. Afterall, you have 2 mediocre companies behind them like Crapcom & Square-Enix.
its just a demo people dont run for demo.people dont wait in front of line(well console)for demo. remmeber wanted: weapon of fate. demo got download a lot and did not sell to well
understand how much the Japanese love their FF and Monster Hunter.
But who gives a fly and fukc. FF 13 is a demo and monster hunter is a full game.
It's more than that. It was MHG (previously on ps2) + MH3 demo versus FF:AC director's cut + FFXIII demo.
Im pretty wasted and i dont really know if raztad is spaking for or against my point but still, it´s a game against a demo and who cares?
LOl there was a battle between the two ? first news lol
While i think both games are trash sony's last ace is ff13, and after that they have nothing anyone cares about. Nintendo on the other hand has monster hunter, dragon quest for the ds and the wii, and they have ff plus other rpg the Japanese seem to only like nowadays.
well ofcorse it did
yeh there is only one problem with mh, it would sell better on thhe ps3 coz of the target audience only hardcore gamers are gonna care about this one, and let's face it the majority of it's users are casual and couldn't be fussed about what new game is coming they are still happy with all the naff mini games they got with their wii
You don't understand how "casual" gamers are in japan do you? Regarding what console its on, they will get it.
Not that it matters but these are demos and not full games.All Wii haters bow down and kiss the ring!
