They can but why would they even bother importing? It will be ready available for PS4. 
Also, those people would be left out while their peers and friends are doing co-op while he is stuck playing with foreigners. 
So I don't see the point in importing it. TBH.

That's what I said bro.

But you edited bro.

is it ? can't people just buy a western copy since Xbox is (I think) region-free ?

The people importing it are like US troops in Japan. People forge that there are ~50k stationed in Japan. While that's not a huge number, army bases typically have a lot of people playing games in off times.

There's this MonHun bundle, but I don't know when it goes on sale?


Same day as the game.

In that case I can see PS4 hitting some really nice numbers during MHW week.



Woah, 2 weeks in a row for PS4 :O

Hopefully PS4 continues to do well there, and sales overall pick up. The console market is dying in JP, and the PS4 needs to succeed to save that region of developers, for western audiences, otherwise it might be mobile / handheld only.

As usual the Switch is doing very well, and 3DS still holding on.

Switch is also doing that.

Alas, the more companies do better there,the better



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Switch number 1 selling Hybrid though!



Get your shit together and start shipping 100k/week Nintendo! hahaha



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Wrong. The console market is growing in Japan actually, in part thanks to the Switch and to some extent PS4.

Anyone know the reason why Nintendo can't fixed the Switch supply issue?

They didnt plan ahead, for success.
What happend is it sold better than they thought, and theres a shortage of memory chips & LCD (apple took a large portion).
That was the rumor back in april. Its probably still plagueing nintendo.

Basically apple is fighting Nintendo, for LCDs & memory chips, and makeing iPhone's instead of nintendo makeing Switch's.

The "only" fix is to wait it out, Nintendo are being cheap, and arnt willing to pay more than Apple, to get parts.
So most of the sales go to apple, beacuse their supply chain power is bigger & they order in bigger quantities.

Kinda hard to make Switch's if your missing parts needed to manufacture them with.
Apple is f***ing them, by buying large amounts of the same parts Nintendo needs.

Even if production should be up in 2018, its still probably a issue for them.
