Media Create Sales Charts Show a Predictable Monster Hunter Domination, 3DS Sales Explode Too

on September 18, 2013 10:15 AM

Today Media Create released its software and hardware sales, and we pretty much already knew what we were going to see, so without further ado, I give you the Monster Hunter domination.

As usual, lifetime sales are in parenthesis and new titles are bolded.

  1.  Monster Hunter 4 – 3DS – 1.715.060 (1.715.060)
  2. AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo – PS3 – 27.052 (27.052)
  3. Brothers Conflict: Brilliant Blue – PSP – 15.297 (15.297)
  4. Tomodachi Collection: New Life – 3DS – 10.530 (1.431.527)
  5. Uta no Prince Sama: MUSIC 2 – PSP – 10.343 (78.758)
  6. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team – 3DS – 9.428 (302.594)
  7. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – PS3 – 8.906 (454.343)
  8. Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life – 3DS –  8.822 (264.131)
  9. Splinter Cell: Blacklist – PS3 – 8.252 (30.677)
  10. Youkai Watch – 3DS – 7.791 (172.022)

The hardware side of things was just as predictable as the software one:

  1. DS LL – 236,700
  2. 3DS – 40,092
  3. PS3 – 12,146
  4. Vita – 6,020
  5. PSP – 5,449
  6. Wii U – 5,003
  7. Wii – 962
  8. Xbox 360 – 244

So yeah, Monster Hunter 4 sold like hotcakes and panini combined, and pushed sales of the 3DS to stratospheric numbers as well. Unfortunately Nintendo can’t be fully happy about the results, as the Wii U is sinking lower and lower, beaten to the 5th place even by the old PSP, with no game whatsoever appearing in the whole top 20.

Speaking about the PSP, it has two games in the top 5. That’s some staying power…

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
