So a lot of people on resetera are accepting the game did 2m in Japan now. I still find it hard to accept. I'd gladly be wrong though. 600k digital just seems way to high. If they said 300k digital I'd have an easier time believing. Did people from other regions set up Japanese accounts to buy the game? A bit like how people set up American accounts and buy digital from there?

MHW had a 95% sell through rate in Japan so it was stock issue that made people go digital for this one.

If it wasnt supply constrained and they sold say 1.5m retail I'd have guessed a natural 20% digital attach ratio for this. That is 300k digital. So i guess all things considered ~2m isn't beyond the realm of possibility it's just mind blowing and hard for me to accept..
