Nice! I think 2 million lifetime is in the bag now. Does Famitsu include digital sales?



Those are good MH numbers, and it will keep legs for a long time. I think MH4U opened at 1,5 at launch? The PS4 numbers however are below my expectations.




so with digital it will over 1.5 million,crazy!

It sold 1.6 million in its first two days and 2.63 million lifetime. Monster Hunter 4 (non-G rank version) which is the better analog here, since it isn't an expansion, sold 1.875 million in the first two days and more than 4.1 million lifetime in Japan. 



Amazing Numbers! i expect better legs than DQXI too.
