Monster Hunter continues to slay sales charts in Japan

Like Pocket Monsters that live in a PSP instead of a capsule, Monster Hunter Portable 2nd continues to be immensely popular in Japan. The sales charts for last week show that Capcom's Monster killer has gone on to sell another 64,368 units bringing it's total sales up to 1,000,599 units. If ever there was a game that was obviously in line to get a sequel, this is it. Luckily for US gamers, Monster Hunter Portable 2nd will be coming to the US, so you only have to add to the Japanese sales if you're impatient.

Monster Hunter slays Japan's sales charts

We knew Monster Hunter Portable 2nd was a big seller, but now the official numbers are out. The weekly sales report from Mainichi Interactive states that Capcom has blown away sales expectations by selling 700,000 units in its first week. This easily puts Monster Hunter Portable 2nd one of the best selling PSP games yet in Japan. PSP hardware also sold quite well in the same time, coming in at number 3 in the hardware sales charts. Let's hope this news means more Capcom content on Sony's portable.

Downloadable quests hit Monster Hunter 2 in Japan

Yesterday in Japan, Monster Hunter fans were able to go to their local game stores and download new quests from the demo kiosk's "PlayStation Spot". In addition to quests and more, PSP owners who don't own Monster Hunter Portable 2nd can download a demo of the game.

With reports of Monster Hunter 2 coming outside of Japan, let's hope this additional content is either included in the version we get, or that we can similarly download the content. I personally dig the idea of downloadable content on the PSP and I hope more games start to feature it. Does downloadable content appeal to you as well?

Sony unveils its PSP Tokyo Game Show lineup

Sony unveils its PSP TGS 2006 lineupWith E3 seemingly now a shadow of its former self, the gaming industry's focus may shift to the Tokyo Game Show, which just so happens to be only a mere seven days away. TGS 2006 goes from Sept. 22 through 24 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan. And to whet your appetite, Sony has released a preliminary list of the PSP lineup that should be in playable form at the event.
  • Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception (Namco Bandai Games)
  • Bounty Hounds (Namco Bandai Games)
  • Boxers Road 2: The Real (Ertain)
  • Gundam Battle Royale (Namco Bandai Games)
  • Homestar Portable* (Sega)
  • Jan-Sangokumusou (Koei)
  • Jeanne D'Arc (Sony Computer Entertainment)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel (Konami)
  • Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops* (Konami)
  • Minna no Golf-jou* (Sony Computer Entertainment)
  • Monster Hunter Portable 2nd (Capcom)
  • Navigation Software* (working title) (Edia)
  • Ratchet and Clank Portable (working title) (Sony Computer Entertainment)
  • Sarugettchu Piposaru Racer (Sony Computer Entertainment)
  • Tales of the World Radiant Mythology (Namco Bandai Games)
  • Tenchi no Mon 2: Busouden (Sony Computer Entertainment)
(* – supports GPS)

In addition the already mentioned games, Sony will show new video of 35 more titles. I believe the big story here is how effectively the GPS games use the add-on. If Sony can get software that show the peripheral is more than a gimmick, the PSP may be able to gain some ground on the DS.
