The numbers are in. While Metal Gear Solid 4
has shipped three million copies around the world in the first two weeks, it's already gone off to sell over four million copies worldwide. 4.33 million copies have been sold from June up to September -- that's four months after launch. Hmm, the fourth game sells four million in four months? We sense a Patriots conspiracy here.
With conspiracy theories aside, MGS4
alone accounts for 38 percent of all Konami games sold between April and September 2008. This ties in with previous reports
where Konami predicted an 88 percent increase in profit.
