Talk about system seller. Sony should have launched more MGS4 80GIG sku. This game is gonna sell a lot of PS3. Sony is really counting on this.

and it seems to be working.

its a system seller!!
it will sell much much more systems than GTA4, and maybe will sell more copies also excluding 360 GTA4 sales!!

to those who is waiting for a port to 360, i will say u will never play it unless u buy a ps3!! like it or not thats the fact! its MGS4 baby it aint no over hyped game like GTA4 or halo 3!!! its the real deal when it gets 10/10 scores!!

to think of it, MGS4 has a scary power of selling systems!! this sentence just made my day "MGS4 PS3 80GB SKU an instant sell-out at retail"

i predict ps3 sales will be 1,000,000 in june!! remember guys from who u heard it first from!! wait i think even more!

At least this is a series that actually deserves all the sales...

Marceles3839d ago

Hopefully they restock on the bundles really soon...I know alot of people don't want to settle for the 40gb with a Sixaxis. It even sold out at Gamestop when they threw in the MGS4 headset which drove the price higher. I think everyone has already been waiting on the 80 gb for awhile, and now that it's back with MGS4 and a Dual Shock 3...that's a perfect bundle.

There doing this with practically ZERO ADVERTISING

solidjun53839d ago

I think everyone has been waiting for the bundle to arrive before dropping that amount of money on the PS3. It's funny cause those Analysts are going to be saying "well we don't believe MGS4 is going to significantly help the PS3".

Who knows, GTA4 might increase in sales because of that. Now that they have a brand new PS3 and they want to be entrenched in "Next Gen", they might even associate GTA with the Sony brand and sales of that might increase. Now i'm just speculating and it's all theory.

at all those on the gs forums and here that said it won't move units. That MGS never moves hardware. Just like those people said MGS won't move units this time and were wrong so will they be wrong in their statements that Killzone 2 will be average because Killzone 1 was average.

LJWooly3839d ago

It seems MGS can do this without even so much as a couple of adverts, whereas games like Halo need ridiculous marketing budgets, like billboards and Mountain Dew.

8 of my friends (who already own a PS3) have all pre-ordered a MGS4 SKU, so it´s not all new buyers who buys a PS3 just for MGS4...They traded in their 40gb/60gb PS3´s and buys this instead =P

Doppy3839d ago

Wow I love Metal Gear Solid, but I didn't expect this. I wonder how many 80GB consoles were actually sold.

hardmetal3839d ago

However, it's not the same with MGS which is supposed to target the hardcore gamers who would buy the console at any price.

True but all I said was it would move units and, regardless of who's buying the sku, it is moving hardware.

PS3 in 08!

KillaManiac3839d ago

Joker...they traded in their 60gigs for a 80gig just b/c it came with MGS4 and a DS3? Wow...bad move

Now if we are talking about the Gunmetal Limited Edition PS3...that is a different story.
