Seems like the success of the PlayStation brand being back on top is great for both western and eastern publishers

It's crazy how much of the sales are attributed to PS3. Ps4 sales percentages alone were equal to Xbox one and 360 combined, and ps3 sold almost 4 times that amount.

PS4 sales aside, Konami should be more than happy with the amount of money PS4 users gave them to play a Metal Gear demo.

No wonder Kojima is still forced to do MGS if you look at the profits when Konami has MGS and when they don't.

Dat 3:1 Ground Zeroes though!

It's astonishing. I wonder how both versions of The Phantom Pain will fare.

So where the hell is Suikoden 6 then. No excuses Konami.

Given that they've spent the last eight years chasing after COD, wasting that time, nowhere.

DragonKnight1385d ago

Umm, Konami has been chasing CoD with... what exactly?

Also, I know it's all in futility. Konami disbanded the Suikoden team so we're never getting Suikoden 6, or at least not any time soon.

The only thing that comes to mind is...MGS.

MGS4 did try to go multiplayer, then Revengence and now Ground Zeroes went multi. Castlevania dipped heavily towards Western influences.

They were directly chasing after the Western market, make games HD upped standards, when it was rather obvious that they couldn't.

If they had stuck to what they had known, instead of largely abandoning it, I think we all would have been better off.

I don't see adding multiplayer and western influences as chasing after CoD.

Now casual multiplayer, skill becoming optional, and the multiplayer polluted with frat boys and you'd have a case. Lol.

Minato-Namikaze1385d ago

MGS3 had Multiplayer as well.

I feel an exclusive MGS game coming to the ps4 very soon.

Edit: Lol hey dont blame me for the bad sales on xbox for mgs. Didnt u guys cheer when Kojima announced the next mgs game will be on xbox & now that its out u dont want to buy it haha.


ugh just give me phantom pain
