I don't think it'll be the best selling of the franchise,but I can see reaching close to it. That on PS4, sorry but those numbers on Xone are way too high. I think it'll be lucky if it does 500k over there.

I think they can sell 2-3 million lifetime in japan alone. And like 2 millions rof. 5 Million units is not unrealistic, streamings, youtube etc will help make the game that popular it deserves to be and of course the PS4 as a Platform will help also.

1.5 - 2 million is what the COMG numbers are hinting at in Japan. 3 million in Japan isn't happening. Monster Hunter, even with the QoL updates, still has some pretty niche game-play focused on grinding and slowish combat. I just don't see it as something that will go mainstream in the West, no matter how much advertising there is. 

Here in Germany there is a launch event on youtube from the Rocket Beans

The ratings are also very crucial



1.5~2m in Japan

West:

0.70~1.1 (Ps4)
0.10~0.30 (Xbox)

Average = ~ 3.3~4m ww



I actually have no doubts about it being the highest selling Monster Hunter game, I think it's quite achievable considering it's launching on a bigger install base, I also think it'll review very high too, but 6.5m lifetime on PS4 could be pushing it I think...



Hope thats true.... this game looks to be the best MH has ever been, gameplay/graphics ect.
I feel like effort should be rewarded, so I hope thats true.

Thanks for your hope, i hope the meta score will be over 90 :)



It certainly is going to be the best Monster Hunter. I hope.

Still think portable Monster Hunter is going to sell better.

Let there be no more boldness!

On topic: it could have a good shot, due to it being multiplatform, but I personally doubt it. 

Edit: huh, I thought I could fix it. Roterfan, that post I quoted is the problem. You have to add "/" on the second "[ b ]", before the b



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

I dont think it will sell that well. But i hope it will be enough to keep the franchise away from nintendo handhelds. The shitty hardware never helped the franchise to evolve.

Yeah, all it did was help the franchise exist.



Well, this is new.

Read.

Japan is its main audience, and I don't see a console version of MH selling too well. The reason MH sold so well is freinds getting together in a cafe or sonething to play locally. That ain't happening with MH world.
Now when a proper switch MH cones out that WILL break records
