"I would like to ask about the current situation of "MHW". As of the end of September 2018, we have sold 10.7 million copies in total, and about 70% of the total is sold abroad. In Japan, teenagers are increasing more than our expectation."

 

They also site good sales of the PC version. It's great to see the steam community embracing Monster Hunter and it's great to see the Xbox and Ps4 too. Sales outside Japan are excellent. Capcom have done a stellar job in transitioning this IP. Who knows how high sales will go.

I wonder if PC sales match X1. i'm prety sure ps4 is the major player here and got more sales than the other 2 combined, but how much?
Perhaps 6M PS4, 4.7 M xbox and PC? And than 2.2M PC and 2.5 xbox?



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Best decision from Capcom to go third party with this franchise! Finally getting the attention it deserved for so many years!

Not sure but pc version will definitely sell more lifetime. I'd say the ps4 vs xbox split is 90%/10%.

I thinks PS4 has 70% of the sales outside Japan. Total for PS4 is around 8.2 million I'd think. 2.5 million is divided between Xbox and PC. 

My expectation:

PS4: 8.2 million

PC: 1.5 million 

Xbox: 1 million

 

Thus game is more popular in countries where Xbox is weak.

PC version already sold between 5 - 10 millions according to stats from steamspy http://steamspy.com/app/582010 



That should serve as lesson for their future games, do it right and it'll sell a lot.

Steamspy is useless since steam changed the profile privacy or whatever it was so they can't get accurate numbers anymore, the pc release is no where near 5m sold.

The game had 8.3m shipped before the PC version launched, so it's impossible for the PC version to be above 2.3m.

I'd put the figures at around.

PS4 - 8m

XBO - 1m

PC - 1.7m
