I hope to god that Japanese RPG developers are looking at this. The whole kiddie/casual games are the only things that sell on the Wii thing has to be murdered, and Monster Hunter 3 looks like it is doing just that.

I wonder what hardware is going to look like.

Hell yes! I hope that Monster Hunter 3 gets released over here. I've been keeping an eye out here and there on it since the announcement of it. Now I just hope it gets released here in the US. If not, I know what I'll be doing...*sigh* Importing it. Capcom usually somehow comes through and provides the goods. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I think it was announced for US recently? 2010 of course.

Well, I guess, at least for the moment, Nintendo can stop worrying about "weak" Japanese Wii sales...

Hardware sales:
* Wii - 95,357
* Nintendo DSi - 73,710
* PSP - 33,049
* Nintendo DS Lite - 12,027
* PlayStation 3 - 8,760
* PlayStation 2- 3,617
* Xbox 360 - 3,552

Yeah, I really hope that boost lasts for a while (like the PSP's MH boost did). Even though the PSP is kind of simmering back down, that surge of sales has secured it some really nice exclusives. All the Wii needs are exclusives that are actually GOOD.
