Impressive as it is, I kinda was expecting it have sold more than 500,000 more copies after almost 5 months. Fantastic game still and I can't wait for the expansion!

They aren't?.

But why does Capcom need to have one platform over the other as their "main" anyway?.

I expected 8mil at this point.
But it did go pn sale on the eshop for the first time around the last direct and the Sunbreak announcement could push sales a bit for those who don't have a PC.

Monster Hunter World hit the 8M mark after a little over 7 months on the market (reported 07/30 release 01/26). Meanwhile, Monster Hunter Rise has hit the 7.5M mark after a little over 6 months on the market (reported 10/5 release 03/26).

Personally I think that is EXTREMELY good. Monster Hunter on Switch is selling on par with two systems whose combined total was around 120M (I think Xbox One was around 40M and PS4 was at 82M shipped in June of 2018). I know some people expected more, but I actually think this is very impressive and I'm sure Capcom is very happy. Hopefully this means that the next Monster Hunter game doesn't exclude the Switch.

World hit 8.3 million in 5 months. Rise had strong early legs until Japan stopped being a factor, it sold 7.5 million in 6 months, that's not on par with World.

Ah, I was looking at sold numbers not shipped numbers. Still, 7.5M in 6 months vs 8.3 in five is still pretty good.

Its not tracking far behind World and tellingly your rebuttal failed to consider the point he made regarding World being on two platforms who had a combined userbase of around 120 million in comparison to Switchs 90. If youre going to critique dont be selective.
