Monster Hunter World is a fucking beast.
2 million first week alone is incredible. When alo is said and done, this game will reach 3DS Monster Hunter level, which is massive

Isn't it already way past that?

He means in Japan, MH4 sold 4.1m in Japan, which was the only region it released in.

Globally MHW is already the best selling title in the series. Unless you combine MH4 & MH4U.

Which is not right. If combining the two, at least the japanese sales of MH4U should be removed.

Digital first week was high because it was sold out across Japan in less than a day. It managed to sell over 2m first week in Japan and some people here predicted it will only sell 2m lifetime worldwide lol

It's already surpassed 3DS Monster Hunter. Capcom announced this was the fastest selling MH to date.

You know, this thread is about Japan...

is this japan only? and thats a good ratio, almost 50%.

*33%

But yeah that's an insane ratio for Japan.

Also that means MHW beats Monster Hunter 4's first week sales to become the second best first week for the franchise behind Monster Hunter Freedom 3 at 2.146m. It won't have their legs but the profit margin on MHW has probably already made it the most profitable entry in the franchise (perhaps even by a long shot).

Stock issues and cold weather pushed many people to go the digital route. Also stock issues persisted past its first week so I would expect digital sales to continue to be strong in February.

ah i meant that 50% compared to physical sales, not total sales. 

well maybe thats the case for japan, but maybe worldwide i see this MH being the best selling. how much is the best selling MH to date?

You're combining Famitsu's MHW physical sales as of their latest weekly update, with the digital sales of launch week only, right?

As of tomorrow's update of Media Create, we can estimate combined sales to be around 2.65 million, give or take 100k.

If I got your question right. Yes, it's the the combine sales from latest weekly update from last week Famitsu chart.



First two million seller on a Sony home console since FFXII in 2006 (Final Fantasy XIII is at 1.9m and some change, the list from Famitsu is from 2013 so it may have pushed 100k over the past five years)
