The early signals for the performance of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain in Hideo Kojima’s Japanese home turf have been positive, but today the first chart has been released, showing that those signals are indeed part of something bigger.
It's about time that PS4 versions of AAA games outsold their PS3 counterparts.
Yep. I'm pretty sure it's by a large margin too.
Yeah and that's the limited edition the one that's has the game and ps4 system. Which means system seller people.
lol whatever the number, it probably barely beat dragon quest 8 for 3ds. what the hell, i cant believe dq8 still got second?? just how popular is this game anyway??
one word DRAGON QUEST
They are actually two words and I have other: FINAL FANTASY XV It will be another big boost as MGSV, if no biggest.
@StormSailor right two words lol probably, but DQXI is 3ds+ps4 better than ps4+xone basically ps4 do all the works for ff15 sales in japan
Finally, it's about time. With PS4 increasing success in Japan, immediately reflected in the future of the Japanese AAA titles.
Kept you waiting, huh?
This game is awesome
Ive been a MGS fan since the first one. And all i can say that sure this game is cool and funny but it isn't near as the old MGS was. Just the sound of Kiefer is making me uncomfortable. If you are a MGS fan you know what i mean. Ive plyed over 60 hours so far and i now recently i bought Mad Max and played it. I'm having more fun with mad max than i had with MGS phantom pain. If konami left the old gen behind i really Think they could max out the open World with more to do. The World feels empty when free roaming and running around. Sure there is camps and some wildlife but it could be more.
No, no, ..... are you? and no.
Out-sold or not, I'm glad that the devs had the courtesy to bring it to the PS3 in the first place. It's still a good system capable of hosting great games, and supporting those that aren't convinced with the PS4 shows they care about their whole fanbase, and not just the ones willing to upgrade the moment something new comes along.
I hope it has sold well on all systems. I find it worrying that the ps4 version outsold the ps3 considering the lack of Ps4 consoles in Japan. It is a bit worrying that MGs5 did not take the number one place on Amazon Japan for the week.. It is pretty sad.. I love MGs5 I have it for my Pc and it is a wonderful game. I hope that Japanese gamers will invest in this game.. if they dont then it is really a dark future for Japanese gaming. I was pretty depressed when I went to my local Geo yesterday and the game was not sold out.
Could be that they dont want to support Konami, did you ever think of that?
I dont think the Japanese gaming sites have been that up in arms about kojima Konami fallout.
Thats great! Japan really made the jump to current gen with this release. Kojima appeals to the whole world with this series.. Its his last game too so im sure they wanted to play it in its best form
True. Mgs5... Kojimas last metal gear...*tear*
Yeah but wasn't there news about Konami only shipping 3 million copies across 4 platforms?
My understanding was that was physical copies. Most pc players probably use steam and alot of console players go digital . That would not apply to those walking into a store and buying them together with the console, people like to leave the store with software for the new machine.
