    1 - Biggest launch for a Japanese title, DS3 had 129k ccu, MHW 157k ccu and going up.

    2 - Capcom's biggest PC launch

    3 - Biggest launch of 2018, KCD was the biggest with 95k ccu.

    Expected, but I'm really happy to hear it. This game is going to blow up on PC. Already double-dipped!

    Now 173k.

    That's crazy and only on Steam, no WeGame numbers.

    Japanese Devsis eying this with tons of "Masaka?!". Bet on tons of ports in the future.

    I'm starting to think they will hit dat 10 million mark after all, especially once them sales hit.

    I wonder if this reinforces to Capcom to release future MonHun stuff on PC six months later or makes them realize they're leaving hype money on the table.

    I mean, almost all of Capcom's games are immediate. It's just clear from the port that they actually needed time to make a reasonable PC version.

    It should be there already. That last update the other day had it at 8.3 million and between the tencent client and what we're seeing on steam it's guaranteed to be over 1 million easily.
     
  27. I'm definitely surprised that it's selling so well with delayed release and seemingly poor optimization. Guess the underlying game is good enough for people to get past that though.

    It's probably way higher than that already going by games with similar peak concurrent users numbers.

    I know this is a joke, but it is pretty entertaining that aside from PUBG and FM2018, everything else on top played is a relatively old game

    It begins. I need that 10m units sold report in my veins.

    But will it have long legs after reaching that milestone? nothing else matter.

    But you could just apply that mentality to the next game. Whatever lack of resources the Monster Hunter team had to properly develop a PC port on time could potentially just be mirrored again.

    I'd bet money that it already sold that much, especially when counting the Chinese non Steam version.

    Sure, but I'm assuming they're not upending their entire technology base.

    It's not uncommon for a company to start with late ports and move to simultaneous versions later once they're adapted to the platform.

    We can look at Dark Souls as an example of this. The first game moved 3+ million copies as a late port, but it's not like Namco and From opted to make the following ones late ports.

    Similarly Resident Evil 5 was a late port and the future Resident Evil games came at the same time.
     
  38. Why is red dead not on PC at launch again?

    Rockstar is a perpetual disaster company and also found that the programmers they need to get their games out the door after the fifth delay are the most qualified to make a high quality PC port.

    Like GTA V on PC is actually rather meaningfully different from the last-gen console versions.

    I suspect Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC will mirror what they plan for the PS5/XB2 versions.

    Woah, I’m really interested to see how it is doing in China after that 1 million preorders news.

    Also, can we assume it’s over 300k on Steam? It is doing much better than FFXV for sure.

    They said it would bomb because its not on a portable. They said its going to bomb because it's not in Nintendos ecosystem. They said its going to bomb because it's open world and streamlined too much.

    It's a very low estimate.

    Games with this kind of concurrent numbers are basically guaranteed to sell at least a million in their launch window.
