    That’s definitely 1m+ if you factor in the UK and US then.

    @1 They already sold more than 1.8 million copies in two days.

    It’s much more then GT4 sales by 8%

    @4 True :D

    But i don’t think that Vgchartz is that wrong on this one. They are not wrong when it comes to big releases. I don’t know from what ASS they are taking these sales…

    You know the two weeks before MHP3 releases the PSP’s already selling high thanks to new colours. It’s a shame for Dangan Ronmpa but next week MHP3 is probably going to cause PSP sales in 6 figures considering people’s desire for this game.

    @2 There’s no official numbers except for Italy (or was it Spain) I believe where I can’t find the press report but Sony did announce it as a high seller.

    As for Vgchartz their numbers are estimates always with a +/-(5 to 20)% deviation. If their deviations were better they’d have more people agreeing with them. It’s not fair on them to say they are full of crap.
    We should take it for what it is, i.e. data estimation based on retail orders rather than a sales data, considering companies do use their data for their slides.
    Regardless this article is interesting –>

    That article is interesting because it basically writes out in great detail why you should completely ignore their guesstimates.
