Really impressive for a non-casual game. I hope Kojima keeps releasing MGS games forever. On a side note, Call of Duty managed to reach that number with 2 games only :P

too bad they're terrible games!!!

jk jk, i still enjoyed ps1's solid the most though. snake eater was/is awesome but i hate the controls, idk why they needed to be so complex

the controls were fine in Snake Eater, it's just the fact you had alot more things to do in Snake Eater back then compared to "Sons of Liberty". But the nailed the controls in MGS4.

Yeh but Call of Duty is a casual game :p

I know. :P

Call of Duty just has a wider appeal. It's very easy to pick up and play, whereas MGS is more complex and requires more learning. So it's not surprising CoD sells more, but these MGS sales are very impressive in their own right.

the MGS series should have past 100 million sales as its a fantastic series. with only 30 million there is no justice in the world.

Well, they make enough money to keep creating games, so it's not really a problem I think.
KwietStorm  +   1296d ago
Well I've done my part
AusRogo  +   1296d ago

i didnt know sony owned the metal gear franchise??
Virus201  +   1296d ago
Sony doesn't own the MGS franchise.

Pretty good, considering the franchise has been kind of low key among gamers. I know its hard to believe, but a lot of people still don't know what MGS is. I love the series though.

Sony gamers supporting MGS through 3 generations, You're welcome Kojima! And thank you for the great games!
