Well-known Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu confirmed that the actual unit sales of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd reached 2,146,467  in 5th December 2010 (only 5 days after its release) and Playstation Portable hardware unit sales reached 326,639 during the title’s launch week. An expected success you would say. Monster Hunter games are so popular in Japan! I read somewhere something very funny but so true, if Monster Hunter was a home gaming console in Japan, it would be easily be the most successfull gaming hardware in the country. And I cannot agree more. The European and North American versions haven’t been confirmed by Capcom yet, but the estimated release date is about 6 months after its Japanese one.

Capcom has released the “PlayStation Portable” Monster Hantazumoderu 3rd (PSP-3000MHB)” collection package in 8th December 2010. Also, this Fabruary (10th, 2011) Capom of Japan will release two more limited edition packages containing the game and Playstation Portable handhelds at 19,800 yen.
