What really surprises me is that this is supposedly just an expansion.

ZOMG!

1 mil first week?

This could be the highest PSP opening week... EVAR!

I wish that this would come to the states.

 If I'm not mistaken, that honour was held by Crisis Core at around 500k?

I predicted 600K first week, but it looks like it will be close to 80K, MH game are extremely top heavy when it comes to first week sales.

 

The only reason this game is so amazing is the online play. Keep it up

Amazing sales!! I put this on Digg - http://digg.com/playstation/Monster_Hunter_Portable_2G_PSP_sells_670k_in_ONE_DAY

Spread the word. Could do a million in one week.



WOW! I predicted 400 - 450k, but it sold 670k 1st day. Way underestimated MH. Man! Japan sure love it.



I love Capcom. I'm glad to see that they have an RPG force on par with just about anything in Japan.
