Forums - Gaming Discussion - MHW over 10m sold already

@chazore
It works both ways. Payday 2 devs prioritise pc big time over ps4. So do planetside 2 devs. I didn't give those games even a second thought when they were available. Just got them and had fun.

I remember when mhw launched you were giving it socks pretending you'd probably never buy it saying this game and that has your attention in the genre now. I knew you'd buy it eventually like you just said though.

The reality is over 10m people have now supported the capgods in just over 6m. Millions more will in future whether its at full price or cheap on sale like yourself. There will be many on ps4 and xb1 getting it super cheap on sale so it won't just be yourself. And considering it's out longer on those platforms they'll probably get those sales quicker. I'm surprised you're not refusing to buy it cheap on sale for that reason too.

Can anyone share here the total sales of all 4th generation titles worldwide? (MH4)

Monster Hunter 4 (3DS) (2013) - 4.1m
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS) (2014) - 4.2m
Monster Hunter X/Generations (3DS) (2015) - 4.3m
Monster Hunter XX/Generations Ultimate (3DS) (2017) - 1.8m
Monster Hunter XX/Generations Ultimate (Switch) (2017) - 0.35m

Total: 14.75m

According to this site

Thank you.

One question, are X/Generations games mainline 4th generation MH? I had the impression that those games weren't really mainline and now when I go to Wikipedia I see them there categorised as spin-offs. Can any MH expert elaborate on that? 



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Its technically a spinoff but the core gameplay is pretty similar (some minor changes).

So its ~8.3 million for MH4 & ~6.5 million for MHX which could surpass 7 million with the western release on Switch later this month.

And that's your decision to guy them whenever, no matter what state they are in. That is one of your set of standards, which is totally different to mine.

"giving it socks", what are you even on about with "socks"?. I've been into MH since the PSP days with my mates, just not into it as hardcore and "no real Scotsman" like some people on here (hint hint) want to push it as if you like something. That being said, I haven't bought it, so that could change either way depending on Capcom actually fixing the port and the cost going down within the next 6-8 months, if neither happens then I've got other games to purchase and play, as well as Dauntless to consider.

"Capgods" lol, I know your game Kero, they aren't gods, they are just another Japanese publisher out there.

Unless you actually believe in fictional gods that goes without saying.

Don't be afraid. This isn't the middle ages anymore where you'd be sent to pergatory for not believing in an invisible man in the sky.

Feels more like the middle ages when people believe in non existent beings and false gods to me.



Oh wow the slayage continues, talent pulled  through and the haters lost, not surpised that the thread for this in that other site only has 5 pages

And then the rest are truly terrified of that group of people.
