@NoirSon - Actually, Nintendo is paying
for the servers, not Capcom. So there is
no loss for them on that front.

This game is undertracked. Capcom said
it sold 500k.

I'd wager that if they ported an "HD"
version of MH4 to Wii U eventually, it
would sell much better than this. This
sold pretty well, as it is, considering
most people who really wanted it already
had it on either Wii or 3DS.
NoirSon (on 01 August 2013)
Given the game was made on the cheap,
the only probably loss Capcom has from
MH3U for the Wii U might be the servers
for online play. Still, I had figured
before the Wii U's release that the
Western audience would gravitate more
toward the home console port... live and

Capcom themselves that Monster Hunter 3
Ultimate on the Wii U is a smash hit.
