3DS is doing good, hopefully well enough to support Nintendo as the Wii U attempts to find it's footing.

Monster Hunter has never been popular on consoles.

The Monster Hunter game is packaged with the Deluxe bundle which Nintendo is struggling to keep balanced with the Basic bundles.

monster hunter sells better on handhelds compared to consoles.

Monster hunter 1 on ps2 only sold 280k
monster hunter 2 on ps2 sold 630k
monster hunter tri was the most succesful console MH sold a little over 1mil

compare those to the handheld version they destroy the console versions

Monster hunter freedom unite sold 4.13 million on the psp
monster hunter portable 3rd sold 4.8 million on the psp
monster hunter tri G 3ds sold 1.7 million on the 3ds

as you can see huge difference in sales.

That's BS. They should keep tracking the DS until it actually does die. Well, I guess the 3DS isn't helping but I REALLY want to see the DS finally beat the PS2.


I thought it already has.

Alundra is the best top-down Zelda game since Link to the Past.
Darksiders is the best 3D Zelda game since Ocarina of Time.

It's about 1 mil away, IIRC
If you track by the same amount of time, though, it has as it took the PS2 12 years to reach the numbers it has today.

Conflicting numbers, hard to tell really since PS2 hasn't been tracked by most sources for at least a year.

Horrible numbers for the Wii U. Nintendo should stick to handheld.
