    Woot that sounds just simply fantastic! Thats like 20% of PSP owners have this game! I ought to state that phrase about sales and quality, but I grow tired of restating it, lol.

    Just imagine how well it would’ve sold WITHOUT that small portion who pirated it instead of importing or whatever.

    Sony, you have a great handheld here, UMDs still make up a very large majority of your sales… don’t screw up the PSP2 with your digital download only BS.

    • kupomogli

      The game isn’t in the US or PAL areas yet. Most of the Japanese actually purchase their games.

      • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

        Yep, and the digital download doesnt have anything to do with piracy

    • Zeik56

      You do realize that the PSPGo is actually the least pirated of the PSP consoles, right?

      • Apollokids

        Probably because there’s no real interest in hacking the pspgo. What was originally inteded was for all psp games to be played using cfw and also all ps1 games. A psp-2000 with 5.50 genD3 allows you to do this. There would also be no glory in hacking a pspgo. But when the PSP2 arrive, hackers will see it as a new challenge and another round will begin.

        • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

          No… It’s just because is new, and it seems it already has been hacked

        Irrelevant.
        This doesn’t change a thing.
        These sales, regardless, mostly consist of physical UMD copies.
        I’m saying it only goes to show that these games will sell really well with physical distribution over digital.

      ……right.

  • deimos

    Add our import orders! :D Western release please?!

  • PrinceHeir

    as expected.

    Monster Hunter is like the PSP’s Pokemon.

    now please make one for the PS3 as well.

    • malek86

      If Monster Hunter is like the PSP’s Pokemon, then I guess it’s understandable they aren’t making a PS3 version.

      I mean, have you ever seen a proper Pokemon game for a home console?

      • PrinceHeir

        i was actually waiting ofr this to happen. yes Pokemon on a console wouldn’t work(unless they reinvent it someway) but have you seen a Monster Hunter on a Console? yes ^^

        the reason why i compare this to Pokemon is due to it’s sales and popularity, not to mention they’re both handheld. the reason for popularity in japan is because of the co-op component(don’t know about pokemon having a co-op component never played the new ones) of course if there’s a new console version, they might support it either 4 or up to 6 players. but of playing it besides your friends is better and more fun than online.

        • Joanna

          Pokemon has always been about co-op even back in the gameboy days. That’s why there were version exclusives and the link battles. The only difference was the co-op was local and you needed a cable. But to answer your question, yes pokemon does indeed have online co-op. It had it since Diamond and Pearl. No voice chat or text chat though, which I assume MH has (never played it).

          • PrinceHeir

            i think only Monster Hunter Frontier and Tri has voice chat or text chat. the PSP i don’t think so.

    “Capcom attribute this growth to brand awareness, which they believe is the result of several industry collaborations.”

    You mean brand awareness/advertising helps sells a game? Nonesense!!! If the game doesn’t sell well it’s gotta be pirates!!!

    Just ask Sony….

  • http://twitter.com/gabriel_may_uk Gabriel May

    Heh…As WildArms said, there is no shock to this. And since MH has a cult fanbase in Europe and North America, I expect it to do well there too, helping boost MHP 3rd’s already impressive numbers a little bit.

    MH has joined the elite likes of Pokemon, Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest as guarenteed big sellers.
