Officially the ps4 and xbox version has sold a staggering 8.3m units in the 6+ months it's been out. However reports from steam suggest it had a good pc debut of over 2m sales. Monster Hunter has just entered the big leagues. I've no doubt it will hit 15m+ too.

Link to 2 million? I saw where they were able to datamine that it sold 500k in the first few days. That's a big jump to 2 million.

Keep in mind that this is Steam only, and largely does not include China since they vastly prefer the Tencent-backed WeGame platform,although very recently MHW was pulled from WeGame so new Chinese buyers will have to buy from Steam.

Seems it's just an estimate, Steamspy Premium estimates 2,376,000 as of 13th August. 

It was the best selling steam launch of 2018.

It's highest peak concurrent players is 329k, which is the 6th highest peaking game. Behind only GTA5, PUBG, DOTA 2, Counter Strike and Fallout 4.

I'd say ~2m seems right.




So, PC > Xbox?



Very nice, and congrats to Capcom. Just wish I could have gotten into it more than I did, but so much was working against that happening.

I like how we've managed to turn this from MHW crossing 10m to "let's all thank PS4 and forget everyone else", "Also let's jab at Nintendo just because".

I won't be adding to the number yet, not until Capcom sort out that expensive late PC port .

No one is jabbing at Nintendo, they are jabbing at Nintendo fans who thought MH can only be successful on Nintendo hardware despite its past success on PlayStation.

Its a fair jab.

I don't think Capcom will see this nor will they care, they are getting more than what they bargained for here. For me personally, I double dip when its a really good game. For GTA 5 I triple dipped, PS3, PS4 and PC. I'll do the same for RDR 2 when it releases on PC.

And they said that a Monster Hunter game which is not on a Nintendo console wouldn't sell. xD

It was a great move from Capcom to bring this game back to Playstation! Amazing sales!

Indeed it was a brilliant move. Even considering NSW success now, back then, it was the best and maybe only move to keep the franchise going.

Hearing some Nintendo fans saying that the game would fail while trying to explain multiple times that the game had a lot of potential was tough. After the game's success when I pointed out this fact I had to hear how they hated the game. After that I keep staying away from Nintendo fans. I don't mean to upset any Nintendo fan nor trying to generalise it, just sharing my experience.



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

The "it'll never sell/run on Switch" comments are telling, which aren't even remotely needed in a thread with MHW at all, so when they are issued, then it becomes a jab. We already know full well that Switch is getting it's own MH game.

 

"it's fair" when it suits you.

I don't think any company out there cares about anything other than more money tbh, that;'s how they operate when they become that big, that's how they will continue to act and think until they die off. 

I don't really need to double dip, but I would for an indie game to support the smaller dev, rather than the larger one that doesn't need it. FOr me I won't be with RDR 2, I'll be waiting for it to reach bargain bin prices, because I do not reward those who treat the market I game on as second class let alone expecting the time spent waiting for it to be paid in full.



The 'never run on Switch' comment was because someone brought up porting MHW to Switch. We know that's not happening. As you said, Switch will get its own Monster Hunter game, likely more in line with prior entries.

Which was already mentioned. 


Also we have the quote button on this site. 



Indeed, I do not use the quote button when I'm replying to the last post in the thread. Gotta work out those context clues!
