Media Create has MH3 20k higher than Famitsu this week, over a 20% difference. Makes me think they'll have Wii higher than Famitsu, as I find it strange that Wii was the only console not to jump on Obon. The others all jumped as expected. I wasn't expecting more than a 15% rise for Wii since MH3 is falling, but we'll have to see what MC has.

Why are the life time sales of Monster Hunter 3 so different in Famitsu and Media Create? Famitsu has it at 793,000 while Media Create has the game at 750,000. It's a difference of 43k. Is this discrepancy normal?

If Nintendo is successful at the moment, it’s because they are good, and I cannot blame them for that. What we should do is try to be just as good.----Laurent Benadiba
