Monster Hunter is never going away. It's only going to get bigger and bigger. I bet one day there will be a Monster Hunter console. It will only Monster Hunter games. It'll be shaped like a Felyne's face and you'll put the game disc inside the mouth hole.

That imaginary future sounds silly, but we're well on our way with these one-week sales results for the launch of Monster Hunter Freedom 3 for the PSP in Japan. Capcom says that the game managed to break all records, selling 2 million copies of the game in one week! It's been a couple of years since the last one, so it sounds like gamers were good and ready to get the newest version when it released on December 1.

I'm imagining a nation of zombified gamers bumping to each other in the streets with their faces all in PSPs. It has been that way for awhile; the franchise has moved 15 million copies since its launch in 2004.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate went on sale on October 11th in Japan, and already it has mustered up over two million in sales. The original base game for reference sold roughly 4.1 million units for comparison. Now that it sold over two million, the series doesn't have to be canceled, due to Capcom's new "AAA logic." Just sell yourself to Nintendo already. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [Capcom]more

Okay, this Mega Man armor for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is cute

Man, Capcom is killing it with these Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate crossovers. And by "it," I of course mean Sonic the Hedgehog. He never stood a chance. This Palico armor styled after Mega Man is super cute but, admittedly, it'...more
