Xbox 360 "JUST" trailing 7000+ consoles hahahaah to the PS2 no less. What a joke. They never say PS3, "JUST" trailing the xbox 360 in America by 8000 units.

Bias much?

and the xbots were saying mgs4 failed =0

Pornlord3869d ago

Well, if PS3 was doing as bad as the 360 is, sure they would say something about it. And it's a little different when you're trailing 7000 units but you sold 200,000 units to begin with. But 2100 units... that's sad... really sad.

This game did for console sales what GTA4 could not.

look at the increase. AMAZING.

AllroundGamer3869d ago

that's probably because GTA4 isn't a masterpiece like MGS4 but only a simple GTA datadisc without any innovation...

Drekken3869d ago

True, it isnt... but the way it was hyped and the reviews it received you would of thought it could have.

pimpstation3869d ago

Bbbbbut bbbut but but... I thought MGS4 wouldn't sell any PS3s! That's what themart/POG told me! How could they be wrong?

What would happen when FF13 is rialsed

man i hate FF now. Why is it not turn based

kingOVsticks3869d ago (Edited 3869d ago )

All of japan will be calling in sick at the same time 0.0 Actually I think there's a law in japan that bans games like dragon quest to be released on a week day because so many people call in sick I think this will happen for FF13 also

INehalemEXI3869d ago

I am looking forward to FF13 am sure it will be a kin to MGS4 in terms of such high quality. We will get Versus to help with Withdraws after FF13 is beat too.

Lifendz3869d ago

Sony must be happy. Should send Kojima a bouqet of roses.

juuken3869d ago

And why would you hate FFXIII? That rpg's gonna rock HARD.
I cannot wait for it.

is buying a 3rd60? Retarded people? That whole country is cutting edge.

I guess the 3rd60 is good for a laugh

Sir_Ken_Kutaragi3869d ago

Maybe they lack Comedy shows in Japan, so they buy a xBox 360 and all the Family sit in their living room pointing at it LAUGHING!!! ;-D

1. PlayStation 3: 75,311 ;-P

2. PlayStation Portable: 64,675 ;-P

5. PlayStation 2: 7297 ;-P

6. Xbox 360: 2163 ;-D ;-D ;-D

what a shame for shane kim that ps2 still outsold xbox360 in japan... thats too bad..

Lifendz3869d ago

I hope when PS4 launches you guys don't doubt the system as much as you did PS3. It's really getting old telling you guys "this is Sony and it's only a matter of time before they reclaim their top spot."

cloudkillerffvii3869d ago

...but this was only for a week. How many weeks has the PS3 been out? ...and it was only on top when MGS4 came out... for one week?

Your gonna have to see something more substantial to make a call like that

Lifendz3869d ago

I don't have to wait at all. Look at the competitions' numbers. And when I say competition I'm not talking Wii because the Wii is in a category by itself (whether you take that as a good thing or a bad thing is on you).

MK_Red3869d ago

Good news. Hopefully MGS4's effect can last. PSP and PS3 topping the charts. Hell yeah!
