Japan loves it some Monster Hunter. Take the latest version, the PSP to PlayStation 3 port—or if you prefer "PSP Remaster"—Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Version. It's Japan's hottest game right now.
The PS3 update of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd sold more than a quarter million copies in its debut week in Japan. Quite good. But not nearly as good as the 1.9 million copies the PSP version sold during its first week on the market. Still, pretty good news for Sony and Capcom.
