Don`t know how diferente both versions are, so it depends. Being able to keep on playing in the Wii U versions is good but i don`t see many people waiting for this version.
Maybe it will go the same way as MH for Wii U. As for hardware, don`t see a big boost coming.
If only this game had been released with the console, things could have been different.
I wass thingking the same, so here is a comparison...
First Week: 561k
MHTrii (Wii U):
First Week: 108k
Based on that data, lets try to use to predict DQX for Wii U
First Week: 384k
DQX (Wii U):
First Week: 77k
I think that, at least, there`s a chance DQ X might pull MH numbers LTD. It`s true that DQ X is a MMO but MH 3 was pretty much sold as a game. How many versions did the same have anyway? No wonder Capcom ws happy about those sales!
I think the most important factor will be - for Nintendo that is - if sales can rise substantially. If a MMO can sell systems than other games with more mass appeal can, in theory, pull bigger numbers. Which, at the end, will be a way of determining the interest in the console, like: if even a MMO can sell the system, it`s because it ain`t dead!
