1.3m including digital cards isn't that great to be honest.
Hopefully it has a high digital ratio. But it's Japan and the Switch. So I'm no sure about that.

WOW PS5 stocks last week... I hope it continue.
It basically drops my prediction to when surpass PS4 for one week instead 3... the gap now is around 30k.

Next week PS5 will be already surpassed PS4 in Japan aligned if same stocks.

1.3m including digital cards isn't that great to be honest.
Hopefully it has a high digital ratio. But it's Japan and the Switch. So I'm no sure about that.
It is fine the shipment/digital is 2m units to Japan... it basically the same amount as PS4 World released there.
The west took a bit hit in sales... Japan is on par with World launch.

BTW the leaked number is around 2 million shipped + digital to Japan but it can be a close number like 1.8m or 1.9m.

Seems like the next Monster Hunter game will be World 2 on PS5/Xbox/PC. Going Switch only hurted sales.

Btw PS5 is over 60k! Supply/production is really going up, probably it's ahead of PS4 at the same point in March 2014.
One week to go if there is the same supply next week.
The gap is around 30-40k I believe with this week data but I will check to get the correct number late.

Pretty good debut for Monster Hunter👍 i assume they don't even count digital sales
There are digital cards included so it is counted.
But the shipment + digital seems to be around 2 million.

Actually the words where something like "about 50% of 4 million announce were for Japan".

Ps5 about to murder Ps4, Ps3 will be harder but we believe it's possible!

I believe PS4 was most of the generation ahead PS3... they tied after FFXV launch on PS3 and PS3 took the lead later.
PS3 sales had more time (years) to sell... at the same time frame the gag is not big.

Sadly in 2017 I took some time off and stooped to post the comparison.... it will be fun to revisit it and compared with PS5.

Capcom aren't fools dude, they obviously making World 2 regardless of how this Switch game does.

They just simply released a Switch title(the hot thing right now, not the PlayStation4, not the PlayStation5) to great sales and it will continue to grow, its perfect timing for Switch and Capcom is gonna continue supporting the system until the PS5Series X get an appropiate userbase, in no way Monster Hunter RISE is anything but a success 👌

They are more than capable of supporting more than one system

Capcom under shipped physical copies of MHR with 94% sell through, but we already know about 700K digital sales from Japan sales insider Gibson.

Next week is going to be the decider whether Rise is going to end up at 3M as MHW or 4-5M as previous portable games.

Yeah but Ps3 was a huge Colossal failure at first, the fact that it still sold +10M in Japan is crazy.

Capcom had forecasted MHR for Switch to sold 1M units in a launch week but they managed to sold 2M units(1.3M physical and 700K digital). Capcom is very happy right now as the physical sales is out of stock and digital sales exploded.

There is a big turn around in sales for PS3 after 2009 I believe with the Slim model.
Interesting to note that the huge initial failure was what made Square change FFXV for multiplatform... and what made them choose Xbox One as main target at started for PS4/XB1.

They back to PS5 now again due what happened between PS4/XB1.

They seems always a bit late in the trends lol
Capcom seems to adapt better to changes... they fast flip whatever the market moves (remember Capcom started exclusive to Xbox One too).

Pretty sure that sounded like an estimate and not some leak or inside information.


Anyways the PS5 thirst is still real.
Will overtake PS4 soon and even has a shot at PS3 later in the year

Impressive digital rate. They did it on purpose too, as in they held back physical versions in order to sell more digitally and make more profit. Cunning.

I expected much more. Just shows how impressive the ps4 sales were. And to think all the sales age geniuses used to say 500k tops. What do they think PlayStation is the Wii U or something? Sony can actually pull off a a traditional home console these days.

Same, I was expecting Capcom to ship at least 1.6 million for the first week but they didn't even ship 1.4. hopefully it was an underestimation and they're not having issue producing enough carts.

With how big the switch user base is compared to the ps4 in Japan especially when you compare it to the ps4 in 2018... mh rise definitely seems to be underperforming

I guess Nintendo fans would rather play animal crossing than this? This is easily the best game on the system since breath of the wild

They did it on purpose so more people buy the digital version (more profit for Capcom).

Be careful, switch games sell very well over time, better than on the ps4, wait and see.

PS5 already give the signal to pass... next-week it will only look at the rearview.
At this pace it will cross the three lines in no time.

Why is the PS4 the weakest of the big 3 seemingly when it was the best hardware of the 3. Am I missing something? Was it better games at launch? Backwards compatibility? What's selling the PS5?

It is Japan... there is a declive in console hardware sales from PS2 to PS3 to PS4... that is why even Nintendo choose portable after Wii U failure there.

But PS5 seems to be recovering a bit... it will probably beat PS4 and have a change to beat PS3.
It will be interesting for sure.

1.3M physical and 700K digital sales isn't underperforming especially when physical sales was out of stock in just 3 days on the market with 94% sold through.

Capcom only forecasted MHR to sell around 1M units on Switch but it's over performing beyond their expectations.
