Wow, I thought Xbox gamers only plays western shooters.
This doesn't really do anything to dispel any notion without numbers. It's a new release. Lets see how long it stays there. The physical version is already at 50 on Amazon while the PS4, which has been sold out since launch, is still in the 20's.
People also need to stop using Japanese games in a broad sense. This isn't the first on XB1. Plenty of the AAA ones do ok.
Glad to see. Much like FFXV seems there is still a fanbase for more japanese-centric titles on the Xbox. So long as the marketing and such is there.
I'm curious to see how Kingdom hearts 3 performs on the box.
this doesn't prove MHW is doing well on xbox, on the contrary, it only proves how hard is PUBG bombing and retroactively proves that it is actually a handful of people buying the game and sharing their accounts like crazy
I'm glad is doing well, I was surprised to see 8 people in my friend's list playing almost every night. I need to chatch up. Last time I saw so many people playing one game was with Destiny 1.
Im happy as long as the game is doing well on anything that doesn't hold the series back. Theres no going back for me now, this is the base monhun standard from here on.
Count me as a plus one. I bought the Xbox One X, Monster Hunter World, and a TCL P605 yesterday. MonHun will probably be my only game, except maybe Cuphead, until Sea of Thieves comes out a I turn on Game Pass. Pretty excited to be back on a Microsoft system.
Can't wait to see what the next sales numbers are, whenever we get those. Though I do think it was a bit of a mistake to not also launch on PC, the game could have been massive there as well and would have been interesting to see the XBO/PS4/PC numbers together
Great to see MH still in the top 5 (both platforms) in last weeks' UK retail charts. PS4 is at number one and Xbox One is at number four (entered at number 2 last week).
DBZ (launched same day as MHW) has dropped to 12 (PS4) and 29 (Xbox One) and Dissidia FF NT has entered at 10.
I wonder how much of the MHW market would crossover with Scalebound had it not been canceled.
Hmm. 5 pages but almost 90.000 views.
Oh wait haha.
Honestly I always believed in the potential, and while the Destiny ship is still very big and would take a long time to crack I never thought it would go this well.
love Monster Hunter! It does grinding right!". But of course they'd never try it because it was on 3DS and we don't get together and play on 3DS. MHW has been the game to finally give those Destiny fans an easy way to get into the franchise.
I don't wish any ill or failure on Destiny (i like Destiny!) but MH is showing Destiny how co-op loot/grind games should be done. It remains to be seen whether the community will eventually become hostile towards MH (Destiny 2 community was all smiles at the start...) but from my experience with the old games... There's plenty of content to be getting your teeth stuck in to.
there was no Destiny yet. They could have released a slightly jazzed up version for the launch of the current gen consoles, and they'd have been literally the only game in town for an entire 2 years, with the advantages of being f2p (look at PUBG vs Fortnite).
But yea... Sega...
PSO2 is also structured similarly to Destiny in that multiple smaller groups (or single players) can interact with each other in larger social instances in the middle of stages. It also had special events that called upon a larger group of players to work together. Basically it was Destiny before Destiny was.
MS is pushing the game on social media too.
little do they know.....HDR is broken currently
MHW still #1. PUBG is #2 and Madden #3 (probably because of EA Access).
Looks like Xbox players don't need silly features like functional matchmaking at launch to get a community started lol.
Where’s DBZ a week in?
On U.K. store MHW has stayed at number 2 (behind PUBG). DBZ has dropped out of the top 20. Just noteworthy because a few users were saying that MHW was only so high because it was new (I think comparisons to the Steam top sellers was made?) but DBZ came out the same day and that’s dropped right down. I guess people just really are still buying MHW on Xbox. Colour me unsurprised.
Now that it has been for 2 weeks on the top, and looking at the pace PUBG was selling (1 million every 10 days), and adding the fact that 100% of the pubg sales are digital, I think there is a huge chance this has crossed the 1 million mark digital sales alone on xbone.
Even if Pubg slowed a lot, that's still 5 more days of sales compared to how much Pubg was selling.
There is nothing to do after HR50 but to grind to HR100 =/.
Capcom recently announced that they shipped 6M copies, which includes digital sales AFAIK. PS4 sales in Japan alone are probably around 2.4M including digital. In the UK (MS second strongest market) PS4 took 72% of sales week 1. Not sure what the split was in week 2, but PS4 remained number 1 while XB1 dropped to 4th.
In the rest of EUR, the split is probably closer to 90/10.
The US will probably have the most favorable split for XB1, but even if we assume it's 50/50 (which I think is a bit of a stretch) I can't see XB1 sales being higher than 1.5M and my guess is it's probably closer to ~1.2M total, including digital, with the large majority of those sales being in the US.
Perhaps this is more of a sign that PUBG's popularity steeply declined after the first few weeks. Not really surprising, as the game sold at an incredible pace early on.
Throws some sand in the gears for those who really thought PUBG of all games would be the game of the year or even maintain relevance well into 2018. GG.
