FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Monster Hunter 3G Sells Over Half a Million Already

Posted on Wednesday, December 14 @ 07:38:31 Eastern by Heath_Hindman

 
Media Create's sales results for the week of December 5-11 are in, and even though Monster Hunter 3G was released on the 10th, it claims the top spot, with over half a million freaking units sold.

"That's friggin' incredible," said...me a couple of minutes ago. The game's release also obiviously had something to do with the 350,000 3DS systems that were sold.  Here are the top 15:

1. (3DS) Monster Hunter 3G 
2. (3DS) Mario Kart 7 
3. (3DS) Super Mario 3D Land 
4. (PS3) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 
5. (PS3) Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. 
6. (NDS) Magician's Quest: Oshare na Mahou Tsukai 
7. (PS3) Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi 
8. (WII) Kirby's Return to Dream Land 
9. (360) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 
10. (WII) Just Dance Wii 
11. (WII) Wii Party 
12. (WII) PokePark 2: Beyond the World 
13. (WII) Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games 
14. (PSP) Toaru Kagaku no Chou Denjihou 
15. (NDS) Metal Max 2: Reloaded 

Hardware went this way:
3DS - 350,321
PSP - 51,191
Wii - 46,018
PS3 - 44,661
DS (all non-3D versions) - 6,630
360 - 
3,211
PS2 - 
1,268
While Mario and Kirby are proving that some old franchises will always rank among the best sellers, Link is reminding us that all good things come to an end. Released on November 23rd in Japan, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has sold a tad under 250,000 copies to date. That's great, but to put it in perspective, Monster Hunter 3G, a handheld re-release of an older Wii game, took only two days to double that.
