    Chart of weekly hardware sales. The spikes are (in order), 3DS launch, price-drop, Mario Kart 7 release and Monster Hunter 3G.​


    Enterbrain has shared first week sales for Monster Hunter 3G, which was released this past Saturday (12/10).

    This first 3DS entry in the Monster Hunter series sold 471,055 units in its first week. Enterbrain's one week tracking period goes from Monday to Sunday, so this figure represents just two days of sales.

    3DS had its best week yet last week, selling 378,114 units, just above the 371,326 units from launch week. This figure covers the full week, from 12/5 to 12/11.

    Thanks to this surge, the 3DS has now crossed the three million mark in Japanese sales. Its life to date total is 3,237,272 units.

    Some pre-release reports suggested that Capcom had been more conservative with its shipment numbers for 3G. We should get sell-through rate information later in the week, but there have been reports of low stock and sellouts.

    Nice, looks like the 3DS is starting to shake things up a bit.

    Now CAPCOM, give us MH3G! NAO!

    I like the Monster Hunter effect that occurs with each release, but too bad it doesn't always translate to a US release or a new console MH.

    While I'm not a fan of Monster Hunter it's good to see the 3DS is doing so well after such a terrible start. The 3DS is getting close to the 10 million sold mark worldwide and will probably hit it before Christmas.

    Too bad amazing japanese sales don't mean the game will be translated. MH is like drug in japan.

    Really wish they'd made the 3DS region free.. Regardless of where I lived at a said period, I'd like the option of buying a game and running it on a console vs. only have the option of downloading it illegally. Having multiple consoles just for imports (could be just one game for some?) is just wrong.

    I bet if I go to Japan and say "Monster Hunter sucks!" I won't live for a minute. If ever Capcom wanted to revert their cancellation of Megaman Legends 3, now is the time.

    I'd worship them if they did that, although I really doubt it. xP
