VGChartz writes: "Metal Gear Solid 4 debuted for the PS3 this week, and it is the first PS3 title in Japan to top 210,000 units in its first week of sales. The game topped out at about 460,000 units according to the preliminary data, with most of the sales from the non-bundled packages of the game meaning the game sold strongly to both new PS3 owners and to the existing audience. Other titles in the top twenty sold much more mundane totals. No title in the preliminary data topped 40,000 units except for Metal Gear Solid 4. With the market largely down except for Metal Gear Solid 4 and PS3 hardware, games on Nintendo platforms accounted for 11 of the top 20 games in the preliminary data."
-With the debut of Metal Gear Solid 4, PS3 titles in the preliminary data accounted for nearly 500,000 units of software sold, far higher than DS, in second place, at about 80,000 units of software sold.
-There appears to have been no significant bump in PS3 software sales to accompany Metal Gear Solid 4 sales.

PS3: 45,000 to 70,000 units range
