The Xbox 360 Effect On Monster Hunter Frontier Online

By Spencer . June 28, 2010 . 8:39am


Whether you play Monster Hunter Frontier Online on a PC or an Xbox 360 you connect to the same server. Going multiplatform gave the virtual world a noticeable bump in the number of online monster hunters.


On June 27, Monster Hunter Frontier Online hit a new milestone. Famitsu reports Monster Hunter Frontier Online had over 70,000 simultaneous players. The number pales in comparison to, say, World of Warcraft, but the Xbox 360 is having an effect on the game. 38,333 people were playing the established PC version and 34,197 people logged on via the Xbox 360 beta.


The Xbox 360 version launched three days prior on June 24.

    rar, I’m glad to hear it’s panned out for them on the 360. It really is the definitive version of Monster Hunter with all those monsters, weapons, and armor, although seriously after Monster Hunter Tri’s smoothed out gameplay, it’d be tough going back to older style MH — but I’d do it! I’d do it for the crabs >w<!

      I have “Crab Lover” written on my shirt. Ok, not really. Still, I was bummed about crabs not appearing in MH3.

        rar, yeah tell me about it, they were so very sorely missed for me T_T

    Sorry, but the Xbox numbers alone especially sound like a joke. That they then have to include the PC numbers more so.

    Why not wait a month before even going looking for numbers?

    Is the xbox360 monster hunter even gonna come to the U.S?

  • Arg lucky xbox users, i wish i could play the PC version, but my PC sucks T_T

    • Code

      Honestly it likely wouldn’t matter, it’s very hard to get on it with a connection that is from outside of Korea or Japan, I’ve even heard them so much as banning people on there servers if there any clues there from outside Korea and Japan. Its not impossible, sure, but everything I’ve read on the subject really makes it sound like a pain T_T’

  • I want this for PS3 :/

    They should add this for the ps3 because there seems to be many mh fans but I doubt it they will add it because xbox seems to have more fans . But capcom doesn’t realize how Many fans we got because sadly they don’t have mh for the ps3 but If they did I can tell you this CAPCOM I would surely buy that game to prove that we like mh too.

    Though these are the words you are going to see from me siliconeraI believe that some profit will come to profit If it comes to ps3 oh and thank you GF for telling me that capcom made another MH(gf=gamefly the BEST app for the new and updates about the games
