Undoubtly the biggest news from E3 was the announcement of Monster Hunter World. And while Monster Hunter titles sell usually pretty stable, this adds uncertainty by switching back to home console. So how will this work out?
How much will the title sell between all platforms? Will it grow in the West? Will it decline in Japan? Will PC and Xbox be able to sell significant numbers compared to the PS4 version? A lot to think about. So what do you think?
