Forums - Sales Discussion - Ps4 now has the best selling home console gen 8 game in japan

Monster Hunter is selling great, no doubt about that but it is kinda sad that this is the first 2 million seller on a PS home console since 2006.

For reference, Nintendo home consoles have had 10 games sell over 2 million in the same time frame.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Actually if look from point that needed hole 4 years to take down a Wii U game, it doesn't look impressive, but when we look only pure MH sales numbers, MH sale numbers are very impressive.



Wow! Splatoon hold on that throne for this long! I thought FF and DQ would have beaten it by now.



Pocky Lover Boy!

Was the margin 1:10 before 2006 too?

Home consoles have obviously declined, but it is possible Sony's share has changed for better or for worse (more likely) since then.

Pretty impressive. I wonder how the Vita would have done with a MH game. It's a beast over there and one of the biggest draws for the PSP.

Pretty strong shift after the Wii and Sony's abandonment of catering to Japan.

It only needed four years to get there. Another example of how disappointing the PS4 has performed in Japan. When anything involving Wii U poses serious competition, it's safe to say that that isn't a good sign.

Ridiculous comments like this is why you'll never be a Mod.

Pretty valid point really. Ps4 has been on the market for 4 years. It likely won't hold the title for long either if the Switch has anything to say about it.

Well it's monster hunter, aside of Final Fantasy XV, the Ps4 never had any BIG game in Japan to sell more than 2 millions lifetime.

But the good thing is that even with only having 1 game that performs with more than 2 millions in Japan, The Ps4 is going to sell more than Ps3 Lifetime.

No home console has ever done more than 15 million units since the Ps2.
