Japanese Charts, Oct 6 - Oct 12: Monster Hunter wins


This week's Japanese charts are in and it's a good week for Nintendo and Capcom, with the new 3DS XL and 3DS flying off the shelves and even the standard 3DS XL doing ok.

Microsoft didn't have such a good week as Xbox One sold just over 800 consoles, while PS4 sold over 11,000.

As far as software goes, Monster Hunter shifted an incredible 1,446,289 units, proving that this franchise is going nowhere. Meanwhile 3DS dominated the rest of the top three, followed by a mix of PS4 and PS3 and PS Vita titles.

Here's the charts.

MOTHER OF ....... 1,446,289 for Monster Hunter 4G? WTF!

And massive a number though it is, that's still on the lower end for mainline MH title debuts as well. Game will likely have more staying power than anything else coming out in Japan for ages though, so it'll probably sell at least as much as MH4 did in the long run. That new model 3DS has certainly given the 3DS a huge hardware boost as well, even if it is likely existing owners trading up for the most part... it'll be interesting to see what it does for the 3DS' baseline sales going forward if nothing else.

Oh, and just noticed Xbox One is down to triple digits already. Took the 360 a lot longer to sink that low when it first came out in Japan.

Do you mean Monster Hunter or Xbone? :) But yes, that is an undeniably impressive week for 3DS on every front. I'd forgotten that Pokemon was out soon as well, isn't it? Should have no trouble keeping hardware numbers in the six digit range for the rest of the year with that then.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
