Metal Gear Rising still selling well in Europe, PlayStation 3 version most popular

Sales charts from different European countries show Metal Gear Rising Revengeance is still selling well. In most lists the game appears in the top 10 for the third consecutive week since its release. Notable, but not too surprising, is the fact that the game sells significantly better on Sony's console than on Microsofts. This is true for all countries in the list below that show individual systems (for the others it is impossible to check of course). (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360)

Europe always favored Sony.

Yeah, that's Sony land over there lol. Still, good to see the game doing well. I honestly didn't have a lot of hope for it after all it went through. I haven't bought it yet, and probably won't until it's a little cheaper since it's quite short, but it does look fun. You know, so long as you don't take the story as being part of the Metal Gear Solid universe.

I bought it and I can tell you it's challenging and fun. You won't get away with button mashing. It's definitely nothing close to devil may cry. Not that I didnt love DMC but this is something different and refreshing.

A tip though: check all the moves online because you have to figure them out yourself.

Just play it for what it is and you will love it.

LOL you want to know how much Europe love playstation, take a look at Eurogamer articles and if you think N4G got a lot of playstation fans, you will rethink what you thought.

Nah, it's a MGS game, used to be a Sony exclusive.
Irishguy95  +   901d ago
Both are true.

EU support good systems and games.
TXIDarkAvenger  +   901d ago
MGS isn't exclusive to Sony...Don't know where you got that from, even before Rising. Not to mention this ISN'T a MGS game, its MGR.
delboy  +   900d ago
Of course, it was a Sony exclusive, not anymore, but still mgs is more popular franchise among playstation users.

Except for mgs1 on GameCube and pc, every mgs/zoe game was exclusive to Sony platform until recently.
And the old msx games, but back then there were no sony console.

It's MGR, but it plays in MGS universe.

So. What does Japan and Europe know that the U.S. doesn't?
patterson  +   901d ago
1) Good taste.
2) A will to not be screwed over by monthly fees.
Hergula  +   894d ago
Yes we do, not sure as to why though...

Either way, Metal Gear Rising was a kickass game and definetly worth the purchase.
Ezz2013  +   901d ago
MGR best version is the ps3 version so that helped too
and any MGS title will always sell more on ps console
Root  +   901d ago
Well it is MGS

Playing a MGS game on the 360 would feel werid in my opinion, same with playing a FF game on one or Tomb Riader, GTA.
_FantasmA_  +   901d ago
Every game feels weird on 360. It feels weird that it even plays games to begin with. I'm used to just seeing ads for everything unrelated to gaming, although there is a very small icon somewhere on the screen that allows me to start the game lost among all the Toyota and Dorito ads.

MGSR on Xbox is awesome!
shoddy  +   901d ago
It feel weird to play non shooting games on Xbox.
DOMination-  +   900d ago
There is one ad in one of the tiles. If you think that's bad then i hate to see what you think of ps4. Sony has a patent on delivering ads via loading screens, pause menus etc.
TuxedoMoon  +   901d ago
Great games deserve great sales. This game was a lot of fun.
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   901d ago
well it was a great game much better than DmC and even god of war in my opinion
FarCryLover182  +   901d ago
I still need to buy it.
fsfsxii  +   901d ago
Best HAck & Slash game ever IMO
I beat it in one sitting and once i beat it, i started it again and got half into the story
Glad to see games like this selling well, not to mention how crappy DmC was.
DivineAssault  +   901d ago
Well this game doesnt really have gunplay so naturally its gonna sell more on PS3
SAE  +   901d ago
I think middle east count with Europe because we get europe versions most of the time. We also get version 1 but not a lot. Or they doesn't count us even though i see people have ps3's every where i go. Everyone i know kids, teens, adults buy games. It's sucks how sony ignore us in middle east..

Anyway, I'm glad it sell well. Hope they release a sequel on fox engine on ps4 with the help of Platinum :) ..
Oh_Yeah  +   901d ago
Metal Gear Rising is my favorite hack and slash this gen and I've played the bulk of them...Yes even God of War 3 and currently playing Ascension now and still I give Metal Gear Rising my nod as the best because the gameplay just trumps the rest of them. Kinda what I expected after playing Vanquish
.. Platinum Games really know what they're doing when it comes to gameplay.

Pft, whatever, it would've sold way more if i was the main character...
Skate-AK  +   901d ago
Raiden is the main character.
raiden-49  +   901d ago
Don't worry SAM you can always be DLC
Deadpool616  +   901d ago
You're in luck Sam!

"Two story-based DLC chapters will also be released soon after. They include Jetstream, which tells the side-story of Sam and makes him a playable character, and Blade Wolf, which adds Raiden's cyborg wolf sidekick's story."
braydox21  +   895d ago
yeah i always wondered why the only time blade wolf even came close to helping you in a fight is in the final boss fight.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   901d ago
This game is awesome, best part is I never saw it coming. I didn't have any hope for MGR and it turned out to be the best game I have played recently.
Deadpool616  +   901d ago
Since Kojima took the time to resuscitate the game by going to another developer to make it, I knew there was something about this game worth saving. Turns out there was a great game in the concept, it just needed the right team to build it. Getting Platinum games was a wise decision on Kojima's part and I'm glad the game is doing well.
belac09  +   901d ago
SUCH A FUN GAME, LAST BOSS IS HARD AS HELL BUT ITS NICE ONCE YOU BEAT HIM. oops, had caps lock on :?)
SDF Repellent  +   901d ago
Great game...even I bought the PS version.
fsfsxii  +   900d ago
I'm not sure, but nobody asked which version you bought...
