not had any problems matchmaking on monster hunter world, very happy with my platform choice.
Supporting good games well done
Great news , as I've said many times over the years Xbox consumers are no different than any other consumers, good games are good games.
I'm glad to see the franchise is expanding well to the Xbox audience (I was one of the people that was worried that MH, like other Japanese games before it, would have an anemic reaction from that crowd).
Capcom done good for a change.
It's good to see a few Japanese games doing well (This and DBZ) hopefully this leads to a Nier: automata port to the system.
Better to hope for nier BC and then a new nier game
And people thought this game wouldn’t do well on Xbox lol
There is definitely a sizeable audience on Xbox for popular Japanese games.
It's hard to tell how big of a deal this is because MH and DBZ are the first notable games to release after pubg on xbox. It's like how on Steam whatever notable game is closest to release (and a little while after) will shoot up to #1 because the list is based on revenue and whatever is the new thing will always sell more immediately than something that's been out for a while. The real questions are how much did it sell and how long it can keep it up.
Doesn’t surprise me. There’s huge overlap between the Destiny and Monster Hunter communities, and Destiny has always done extremely well on Xbox despite the Sony marketing. The situation is likely exacerbated by D2’s retention issues. Nearly all the big Destiny streamers and youtubers are now playing MHW instead.
Got almost 60 hours in MHW
Wow, this is crazy. How far this series has come from just even the last release is crazy. Awesome work Capcom.
Good to see it do well on one too, never got console wars... MHW doing healthy on both platforms is awesome, now pc is left :P
Damn! I did not expect it to do that well.
I didn't believe the whole "Nobody's going to play it on Xbox, get it on Playstation!" talk, but I did see it posted so much maybe I ended up believing it just a little bit.
I'm still really considering on getting it, and if I do it'll be soonish (probably break down later today and get it...).
edit: congrats to Monster Hunter and its team. Overtaking PUBG, to me, seems like it would be cause for a little celebration (even though they're not really competing with each other).
"Japanese games don't sell on Xbox, period"
"Well this one and fighterz are selling well"
"But only because it's new! We need to wait if it will top sales for five years before saying anything"
And then even if it did the next argument in line would be how the split was bigger for PS4 which somehow would make all the money Capcom/bamco got from a Xbox version not valid
Some people just want to argue for arguing's sake
Remember the GAF days where many people claimed MonHun wouldn't sell on console and should stay 3DS exclusive? LOL
I'm so glad to see Monster Hunter doing so well across the board. This bodes very well for the future not that the big sales in the first week already didn't but the fact that it is appealing to gamers on both consoles bodes very well for the eventual PC release and for the series in general. I hope Capcom has a big pipeline of content for the next year or few as the game is only just getting started.
Very good to see! Kinda upset with some of my friends cuz I was asking them a month or two before the game came out if they were getting it. None of them were, and I had friends on ps4 getting it so I got it for my Pro. Now my Xbox friends are all texting me and asking if I got it lol. Definitely not gonna double dip as that's way too much grinding for me, but at least Xbox is doing better than "most" ppl thought. :D
I'm surprised MH is doing this good on the Xbox. Nice.
PUBG only came out 7 weeks ago and continues to sell absolute gangbusters. DBZ also came out as a new $60 game the same day as MHW and that didn’t beat PUBG or even Madden in the US. In the U.K. it didn’t even beat Battlefield 1! It didn’t make the top ten. Meanwhile MHW is number two at UK retail (only behind the PS4 version) and no. 2 digitally on the Xbox store. Hitting number one is the US must mean very good numbers. Game is a beast and it’s doing really well.
:D So happy for MHW! Even happier that everyone on Xbox is enjoying the game as well!
Props to Capcom for a job well done.
Now I'm really interested to see the NPD results for January.
That's pretty huge for the US. Wasn't sure anything could dethrone PUBG in the US until the fall shooters/Red Dead started hitting.
Full claps for Capcom here. Moving to consoles seems to be the best decision ever made imo. This is definitely a milestone for both Capcom and Xbox users. I still don't believe that Japanese games are in sync with Xbox players in general as this is sort of a very special case, but I hope moving forward, (now that many have understand the importance of Japanese games) this continues throughout the rest of the Xbox lifespan.
That's awesome. The game does have me hooked and I have not run into any issues with LFG, something that Destiny 2 really needed but failed to do properly. The game progresses so smoothly between ranks it's amazing.. and keeping it fun at the same time. Good Job CapCom.
Huh. I expected DBFZ to beat MHW in sales and twitch views.
The difference is that PUBG will still be in the Top 5 a month from now.
wouldn't be a notable release. It was supposed to die on its arse to the extent where buying it was being cautioned because you apparently wouldn't be able to find people to play it with.
Somehow I knew before clicking
But I thought there wasn’t a market for it for the Xbox?
Love how people think Japanese games aren’t successful on Xbox, forgetting all the success the 360 had.
Capcom are probably thinking... "we should have done this ages ago."
Great new Capcom.
Nice! We'll get to compare actual sales numbers in the next NPD thread. I was originally expecting a 90/10 split between PS4/XB1 platforms but it's probably actually closer to 70/30 in the US.
Most important take away is that despite the ludicrous notion that Japanese games don’t sell on Xbox, they actual do.
