    That's because GTA V hasn't launched in Brazil and Japan yet.

    I think "Monster Hunter 4-closure Avoidance Edition" would be a more accurate title.

    thats great news for capcom!
    2.8 is not much of a big target. Considering it reached 1.8 mil in 2 days.

    I guessing 2.8mil is WW. I glad for Capcom and I'm also glad that they are setting more realistic sales projections for their games, so far.

    Gahars isn't even a human. He's a bot, programmed to scan contextual data from the OP and thread title, then reply with a clever/witty/tasteless/oddly-appropriate pun.

    Japan only, not WW. 2.8 was a low estimate on their behalf. This could top 4M LTD.

    Only Pokemon Black/White has the highest opening in Japan of 2.6M. Considering the much lower userbase of the 3DS, this is impressive. Lets see how Pkmn X and Y perform.
