A game that doesn't sell out of its initial shipment even when it goes in the bomba bin for many months under performs, no ifs, buts or maybes about it. It's not a bomba, but it did perform under expectations and to say anything to the contrary is borderline fanboyism.

But Capcom themselves said it met sales expectations.  Ergo, the borderline fanboyism would in trying to argue otherwise, in the face of that.

Also, MH3 sold out it's initial shipment (1m).  If it didn't, retailers wouldn't have ordered 150k more...

But when Sony say something similar you still call it a flop

Anyways i agree with you, if Capcom is pleased who cares what anyone else thinks.

What does Guitar Hero has to do with this?!



Above: still the best game of the year.

It seems Kirby is going to do on par to other Kirby games in Japan, but It will have a much better opening in America, next week it will have more than 70K in preorders alone, and 70K was what the DS Kirby games did FW there!

Also, a lot here say that MHIII sold great on the Wii, because it outsold the PS2 entries, which was before the "monster hunter boom" that happened during the PSP-era, but pretty much every analyst in Japan agrees that it underperformed, and that also is a game appeals to a wide audience, like kids, teenagers and adults there.

.

Outside the crazy head of Famitsu (who also said DQIX underperformed, lol) who else in the JP industry has said MH3 underperformed?

Also, MH2 released after MHP.  And the best version of MH2 released after MHP2... so really, MH2 came alongside the PSP MH boom, yet that didn't translate to console sales either...

The Crazy head of Media-create there are still about 100k copies on the shelves which they haven't been able to sell for a budget price.

The monster hunter franchise also wasn't  nearly as big in 2005-6 as with it  was in 2009, which was after Freedom 2.

Can you source said quote or are you simply comparing tracked sales to shipments?  Having less than 10% overstock isn't exactly underperforming either. And which analysts in Japan said MH3 underperformed again?

MHP sold well over a million, while MH2 (which released later) only did about 600-700k total.  And the Best version of MH2 came out in 2007 (well after MHP2, which sold ~1.7m), it didn't even break 150k... again, MH2 PS2 came out while MH was BOOMING on PSP, yet those sales didn't translate to the pay-to-play console... Frontier's been a decent success (for what it is) and it's sales don't compare either...

A game that doesn't sell out of its initial shipment even when it goes in the bomba bin for many months under performs, no ifs, buts or maybes about it. It's not a bomba, but it did perform under expectations and to say anything to the contrary is borderline fanboyism.

But Capcom themselves said it met sales expectations.  Ergo, the borderline fanboyism would in trying to argue otherwise, in the face of that.

Show me, and please don't give me a blog "source" this time.

Well, the first shipment was "over 1 million"...  

http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/news/html/e090730d.html

It's so far shipped 1.15m in Japan...

http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/data/pdf/fy2010a.pdf

And Capcom's happy with that result, in their words MH3 "performed well" and "saw healthy growth"...

http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/english/data/pdf/annual/2010/annual_2010_01.pdf

 

...now can you source "underperforms" for MH3 in Japan?  I'm guessing I'll be waiting awhile...
