Forums - Sales Discussion - Monster Hunter World PS4 Pro “Rathalos Edition” Sells 33,000 Units in Japan

Today Media Create published its weekly analysis of the Japanese market between December 4th and December 10th, and it included an interesting piece of data.  The limited edition PS4 Pro “Rathalos Edition” has sold 33,000 units in its debut week, after hitting the local shelves on December 7th. This accounts for the vast majority of PS4 Pro units sold during the week, which actually overtook the base CUH-2000 model with 45,163 total sales versus 40, 524, for a combined bounty for Sony’s family of home consoles of 85,687. 

The success of Monster Hunter World‘s custom-painted PS4 Pro is interesting since the game won’t be sold until January 26th (the console does include a download code for it, but it’ll unlock only on release date). According to Media Create, this is partly due to the recent beta test.

Wow 33k for a special edition of the Pro of a game that isnt even out yet. Thats means the numbers will be even more when MHW is released, especially for PS4 Pro.

That's strange, releasing a console that comes with a code for the game, despite the game itself not being available for a month.



good to know, great :)

Other infos: Monster Hunter: World PlayStation 4 open beta set for December 22 to 26.

The biggest and most beautiful Monster Hunter-Game is coming january, worldwide. For a very long time, the game is ranked # 1 on Amazon Japan and the Famitsu Most Wanted Charts. It is going to be a big party, It would be really cool if launch images of the queues from Japan become public :)

Congratulations Sony and Capcom!!

I'll be honest, these numbers are decent. Nothing that impresses me, but when the game comes out it's gonna be massive..

The first Beta was between Dec 9 - Dec 12. The second Beta will be Dec 22 - Dec 26.
Everyone has access to these, and they are not tied to pre-orders or the Pro model. The article was just suggesting that people in Japan seemed to like the first Beta, which translated to positive Special Edition Pro sales.
