Impressive, and it's 3 months from release.

I am buying two copies of this game. The limited edition and the standard edition. The standard will be framed on my wall never to be opened (not even removed from the plastic). This is how much I love metal gear and want this game.

ps3 might have the lowest attatch rate but if there is one game every ps3 owner shouldnt do without its mgs4. It won't be easy for mgs4 to sell a million day one but if anygame can its mgs. If mgs4 can't do it then seriously speaking no game on ps3 can. Solid advertising will get it done. In the first week they can definetly sell about 2-3 million. mgs4 does well in pretty much every region so it should make it easier.

It may really sell like a million on day one.

edit: one bot disagree with me and possibly take away my bubbles. You can take away my bubbles, but u cannot take away my freeedom!

Never going to happen.. The PS2 had 100+ million owners and only about 8 million bought MGS2 and 3.. Also the fact that half of the PS3 owners are just movie buffs who bough their PS3 because it was the cheapest blu ray player around is going to make it even less likely that this game will sell 1 million on its first day in N. America. I could be proven wrong but I wouldn't be suprised if MGS4 doesn't sell well in its first week. I wonder how many pre orders for MGS4 they have out.. Its probably no more than 50k world wide.. Compare that to how many pre order halo 3 had. wasn't it 4-5 milllion! I'm not a big halo fan but damn that's pretty dang impressive!

Edit-PS360! Either way how much total sales did Halo3 made in launch day? What was it $175 million.. the biggest total sale in video game history supassing the previous #1 which was Halo2!! lol! for all the 100 million plus playstation 2 owners not even a PS2 game has done that! the original Xbox only had 20 million or users when Halo2 came out! KZ2, FFxIII, MGS4, that homo game LBP will not be able to do that at all!

If it was on the 360 it would thou

Oh, that rumor of it having 4-5 Mil pro-orders was proven false before the release. It was more around 1-1.5 mil. But even so, that was no small feat.

ravinash4668d ago

It will sell a million...because all your little xbox mates are going to rush out and buy a PS3 to play this.
