Monster Hunter: World Becomes Capcom’s Best-Selling Game Ever

Capcom’s action role-playing Monster Hunter game series has released their sixth main installment Monster Hunter: World on January 26, 2018 and over a period of a month since its release, the game broke another record. The series debuted back in 2004 with sending players off to kill monsters across mythological territories. While hunting monsters and scavenging their remains is fun, the game brought more joys for the creators.

Not only Monster Hunter: World became one of the fastest-selling game on the history of developer Capcom but the game has now created another record by becoming Capcom’s best-selling video game ever. As off till now, the game has been shipped a whooping 7.5 million copies already and if the warming period is like that, the game is in for an undisputed long run. Digital downloads has also taken to accounts of that impressive number by Capcom.

We must also include that those 7.5 million copies are not yet sold, they are just shipped. Another interesting fact we need to address is that this very impressive record was mounted from just the sales of PlayStation 4 and XBox One. Now, the game is still awaiting its PC release and if the console sales alone can do that, we sure can bet that there is more to come as it has done the unthinkable even before the chance to get released on all platforms.

Although, developer/publisher Capcom is known for immensely successful video game series like Resident Evil and Street Fighter, looks like Monster Hunter: World is adding one more franchise to the list. The record for the company's best-selling game ever was previously held by survival horror game Resident Evil 5, which was sold 7.3 million copies worldwide. Monster Hunter: World did a fantastic job reaching out a broader Western audience while remaining true to the core.

The PC version release of Monster Hunter: World seems to be dated later at some point of this year. Capcom initially ran grand promotional campaign worldwide to reach out to the fan-base of Japan and overseas markets. Apparently, film director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien Vs. Predator, Resident Evil) is involved in the pre-production of a Monster Hunter movie adaption on Capcom’s long-running series.

PlayStation Network is Facing Issues! Again!

Players around the world are facing issues on the PlayStation Network again for the third time within the last three days. We are not saying that people are going for an outrage here but services that are linked to gaming and social media are “experiencing issues” as per the status page of PlayStation Network. They are working on the case to resolve it as soon as possible and patience from the fans will be much appreciated.

If the problem was regarding PlayStation Video, PlayStation Now or any other services, then the players would've normally ignored it for the time being. Since, the issue was messing with the online features of the gaming and social, people couldn't help it but getting a little concerned here. Most of the gamers were forced to play offline because of the problem as they couldn't connect to the online services of PSN.

PlayStation’s Twitter handle for helping with issues @AskPlayStation also tweeted on how to access to the PlayStation Network for those who are still trying.



The service page for PlayStation Network did acknowledge this and quickly acted towards a solution for it. The problems arose nearing this Friday noon, the very day when two major titles were about to be released; Dragon Ball FighterZ and Monster Hunter: World. Many were also expressing concerns when they weren't being able to play the newly arrived Monster Hunter: World on PlayStation 4 but then it was revealed that the game was having same trouble on Xbox One as well.

Most of the games, applications and online features were having issues launching during the disruption period. Different countries and regions also experienced the downed services and PSN reached out to them all with their status announcement on site and Twitter. This means, it was a widespread PSN issue and not just some minor interruption on limited area. Hopefully, the service page of PlayStation Network will post an update as soon as they fix the issue for good.
