Metal Gear Solid 4 was the #4 selling product at Amazon.com's video games division on launch day. The top three positions were occupied by Wii Fit, Wii Console, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Hit the jump for more details.
Break those bundles down and you'd have a different story to tell, jack asses.
Maybe we will get a report by next week.
you need to tell yourself to get up in the morning! You silly PS-Tools!!! How long has Smash Bros. been out?
Amazon sales are not news. Report please.
They're the #1 online outlet in the United States. There have been a ton of stories approved regarding sales on Amazon for the bundle and many other games.
it's not amazon sales, it's a news article about amazon sales. theres a difference. a small one but still a difference. edit: I didn't mean to agree with you, i did at first but then i thought about and by the time i changed my mind it was too late to change it.
Amazon is not news.
Amazon data is worthless. http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... It's already in the #2 spot and has been all day. 40gb PS3 is at 12 ... MGS4 bundle is in 23rd (because of stock issues - it's out of stock on Amazon). and the 360 premium is in 36th place. ...for comparison. :P
as of 8:30...currently no. 1
Just more PS3 Bias on this site
you pre order online and get it delivered on release, if you want to buy it on day1 you go to a F"""ing gamestop. amd the Number 4 selling thing on amazon isnt bad up against the evil sales machine of the Wii
Right now it's at #2 so is that news too? This is a really inaccurate way to track sales since it changes positions frequently.
when you put it like that, i guess i see your point.
you know when casuals gamers are taking over when "wii fit" beats out GOTY with a 80gb bundle >_>....(goes back to MGS4 act 5)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/be... It's at number 2 now, shows how useless this article is
its #2 right now..
its #1 now this articles completley usless
Well at this momment its in 2nd place!!! ON AMAZON.COM
Wow!!! Postedup. You must watch alot of Dr.Phil. your really inspiring me right now. Your smart and wise.Lol
Completed it about an hour ago. Great game, Epic end. Off topic but wanted to share :) 21 hours. I was hardly as "stealthy" as could be though. Next time. Edit: how can someone disagree with what >I< have just done? Only in the open zone.
Congrats. I have yet to play this-just started briefly. ...I hate these last two classes I have to finish before I get my freakin' diploma from college. -.- Have an exam on Monday so I must study. Boo.
The point of the article is to illustrate a) that the Wii is kicking butt and chewing bubblegum and b) point out that the game may not be the blockbuster everyone thought it would be in the USA. Blockbusters like Halo 3, GTA 4, or Super Smash Bros are #1 on launch day, no questions.
well mgs4 is the greatest game i have ever played ive just completed it about 5mins ago and all i can say is wow. mgs4 beats all the big next gen games out by a lot. uncharted, halo3, mass effect, bioshock and the others are crap compared to mgs4. i havnt even started online yet. even if the game doesnt sell aswell as halo3 or gta4. mgs4is a much better game and deserved all reviews it got apart from the 8/10 ones. in my opinion mgs4 is 11/10 its just perfect for a mgs game.
I pay attention to the bestsellers occasionaly, especially for new releases and on-sale games, and IIRC GTA IV did not hit #1. Wii Fit and I think Smash Bros prevented that. P.S. I was watching on launch night for MGS4, and I saw it hit #1 for a while, and then Smash Bros went on sale for $39 with a $10 Gift Card, so that dethroned MGS4 for the day. It has been at #2 the massive majority of the time since then- it might have been as low as #4, but it was only very very brief. Who cares anyway? It's just one retailer, and it's just one region.
That people will play substandard games with low quality graphics on a kiddie system just because media say the wii is "hot" or "hip"
@pumpkinpunker: Because what really matter isn't how good the game is, no it doesn't matter even if it was the best game ever, what really matter is how much it sells on Amazon. Is that what are trying to say?
I think games like this that take years of development deserve good sales ps. check out phatyaffle.com
punchjump=who gives a sh**
The thing with web 2.0 is that everyone, including people who are not professional in the gaming biz, gets their say just to get hits on their site. I remember reading an article on a site posted by someone from N4G and that made the front page. It was not even news but only his opinions on why the PS3 sucks.
If you look at Amazon right now its at no.1
And even I bought it! PS3 does not move gameslike the 360........bottom line
actually, MGS4 launch did move software and hardware.........bottom line, the ps3 is unstoppable.
If u go to Amazon right now its at no.1
ITS Number 1 now chek it your self http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...
I thought you were kidding,but yes its number #1 and kicking nintendo in the butt.
over Metal Gear, please shoot me!!!!! I'll say it one more time. I don't care how much the wii sells, it has no games, terrible graphics, horrendous online. Why would anyone want it. Oh yeah, so they can play wii fit. Oh well get your sweat on fatties!!!! I much rather go stealth then sweat anyday.
*Aims his silenced operator squarely at snoopgg* :) I'll hold you to it man.
thats only because of stock they couldn`t sell anymore because they didn`t have anymore
Yeah but 360 games are crap
Ugh its actually #1 right now.... this article is lame
it should never have been aproved.
This must be an error, there is no way a CONSOLE is sold more often than any decent day on launch day. think about it: Wii console would have been sold more than one million on ONE day!!! Then total consoles sold would be like one billion... not possible
Well, it's number #1 today, so who cares.
Not exactly Halo numbers, although it's probably more fun than Halo. I have always loved the MGS/Splinter Cell type of stealth gameplay.
I can foresee the future...
I'm still waiting for my copy of MGS4, I pre-ordered it from play.com, but the cheaper cost doesn't always result it quicky delivery. especially to france which seems to really suck :( /Avoids Spoilers
