Beyond just aesthetic changes, the “Hunter’s Model” PSP also comes with an improved concave analog nub, as well as a higher-capacity battery, which means longer hunting sessions without the need to recharge.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that PSP sales shot up during the week of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd’s release, climbing to an astounding 323,653 units. What’s interesting is that about half that number consisted of Hunter’s Model PSPs, which sold 166,000 units during the week.
Every single one of those Hunter’s Model buyers had to buy the game separately as well — the Hunter’s Model pack only includes the PSP itself, not the actual game.
