Forums - Sales Discussion - Monster Hunter: World Ships 7.5 Million those Legiana! (Best selling Capcom game in history)

Nothing short of amazing, IMO.



Around the Network

Highest shipping Capcom game ever already:
http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/finance/million.html

Beat out Resident Evil 5 at 7.3 million.
For reference, the previous highest selling Monster Hunter shipped 4.9 million.



Now to see how Deep Down does.



Paid the investiment Capcom, hope the message sticks.

Wow looks like we wont be seeing another monster hunter game for nintendo. And capcom must regreted they made all those monster hunter games exclusive to nintendo.

Why? They must have gotten lots of profit from making them low budget games. And how long did it took them to make MH World? 

 

And There was a rumor that an MH was coming to the PS4 (which it did) and a different one for the Switch (which is coming) 



Pocky Lover Boy! 

Damn! Whit this, i think it's safe to assume that we are going to see many MH on playstation in the future.
Damn, MHW is set to be the best selling MH ever, the good son is back on Playstation, and will stay for a long time.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Insane success. Monster Hunter in 2 months sold as much as horizon did in 12 months. Crazy success. 10m is a lock. It will probably do 8m+ on ps4 alone.

To be fair,it's "shipment" not "sold" and horizon is an exclusive title.

7 millions sold through for mhw

PS4 at 5 million and Xbox One at 2 million?

PS4 6M and Xbox 1.5M is more likely

You guys are being generous, +6.5M PS is more than likely, this game is "almost" PS4 exclusive.

It's not set to be, it already is. Capcom's best selling game ever in fact.

The best selling Monster Hunter prior to World was Monster Hunter Freedom 3 on the PSP with 4.9m sales, and behind that Monster Hunter X on 3ds with 4.3m sales.

World is completely on another level in terms of sales, and critical reception.
