Ok since you want to continue on about this. I expected the PS4 to have A: a higher baseline (I don't believe the shortages went on that long) and B: MHW to still appear in the charts (cause I don't believe it's only selling digitally now). So in essence, sell longer (A wider mountain so to speak) with the added effect of moving more consoles than usual. That is all.

@bold, and why would you think that? In 4-5 weeks with a tiny price point MH Generations sold.

[3DS] Monster Hunter Generations # (Capcom) {2015.11.28} (¥5.800) - 2.521.859

For the entire next year it sold

[3DS] Monster Hunter Generations # (Capcom) {2015.11.28} (¥5.800) - 266.126 / 2.787.985

Mostly of course at the beginning of the year during post holiday boost.

Monster Hunter World on the other hand in 4-5 ish weeks.

[PS4] Monster Hunter: World # - (Capcom) {2018.01.26} (¥8.980) 53,982 85,322 1,890,273

And ~700k digital.

Sales since then :

2, 006, 158 at least as of week 16 and >~150k digital


TLDR: It is performing pretty normal for a MH game, despite the high price point.

Like some others have said, i'd like to see more data from other MH games, pref ones that aren't spinoffs *and* I would like to know what other games were releasing for those games on the same platform, in about the same time period from the PS4 MHW release and now.
