It's much more likely that Nintendo moneyhatted Capcom for it.

I agree with this, I just can't see how Capcom would put it on 3DS without Nintendo shelling out for it. (not that it's done bad, but I believe it would have done better on Vita given that is where the userbase is)

And don't give me this honour crap, as if it's below them to moneyhat.

Eh no, if anywhere then the MH userbase was primarily on the PSP.

I think I predicted high 300k numbers so if these numbers are right then I wasn't too horribly far off. Can anyone confirm if that is a legit number?


Well it seems to be the enterbrain numbers. You will have to wait until Wednesday for Media Create numbers. 

Ok yeah I'll be waiting for Media Create numbers then since I've never heard of enterbrain.

They're Famitsu.

 

Also the Monster Hunter userbase will almost certainly migrate to whichever handheld gets the Monster Hunter games. I'm not sure there is a particular loyalty to a manufacturer amongst them.



That's pretty much in line with my prediction (345k).



calm down its only been 2 Days of sales, lol i'd love to know what you all think of this
A smattering of sales statistics have emerged based on PlayStation Vita’s day one sales figures.

It looks like ‘select stores’ have been selling out of the Wi-Fi model, with estimated sellthrough of that particular version at around 85%. The 3G version is currently at around 56%.

The top selling games are Everybody’s Golf 6, Uncharted and Dynasty Warriors, with the DLC-based 30fps Ridge Racer ‘uncharacteristically’ slow. Looks like people are wise to NAMCO’s methods.

Stock of memory cards is low, with the 32GB and 16GB units sold out. 90% of Vita buyers bought a memory card. The software tie is at 1:1.

Both Peter and I are importing Vitas, with them hopefully arriving next week along with a big pile of games. We’ll let you know what it’s all about when they land.

it's the future of handheld

PS VITA = LIFE

It isn't the Japanese launch that matters, it will do very well there (though this isn't a very exciting launch), weekly sales numbers in Europe and the US a couple of months after launch will tell us how this will pan out.



I'm not really here!

These aren't bad sales and people seem to be forgetting that the vita will get a call of duty which has a worldwide appeal, not just Japanese.

You're also forgetting that, it'll get its own home console versions. Majority aren't going to buy the same game twice.

It could still be a timed exclusive, yeah?  It would have to be a hell of a moneyhat to dissuade them from millions of potential sales.

I think it was more than a deal to simply release two games on the 3DS. Capcom had the flagship launch title for 3DS, they developed 2 Resident Evil games for a Nintendo system (even though those sell better on Sony consoles) and the PSP version of Monster Hunter 3 was never released in the west even though Capcom constantly tells us they want the franchise to grow over here. It looks like Nintendo begged for major support and I'm willing to bet Nintendo will publish both Monster Hunter 3DS games in the west (they are going to publish Revelations in Europe, too).

There may very well be a contract for exclusivity considering Nintendo's efforts to help Capcom grow the Monster Hunter franchise in the west. And we haven't seen Capcom's Wii U support yet. I guess there was some serious moneyhatting going on behind the scenes and lots of publishing + advertisement deals as well. Something along the lines of "you'll released a truckload of moneyhatted exclusive games for our platforms and we are going to publish and market them". That's just my 2 cents but I think it sounds plausible. Why would Capcom suddenly release all those games exclusively for Nintendo's platform(s)?

OP: The sales are actually really good. Again, if Sony shipped 700k units they must have had more than 2 days in mind. The platform will hardly drop below 200k units next week and there will be a spike the week after. They'll probably sell more than 700k units in the first month. I'd call that a highly successful launch.



Bad launch as expected, Japan is the most software-driven country and the price is too high for the mass market. Of course this device isn't "doomed" at all since Sony always plays in the long term, this is like a premium launch.



With Memory card's sale is close to 1:1 then I am pretty sure Sony made a ton of money.

Comparison's sake.
