Congrats to Sony and Konami! Taking over in 2008! :)

yep, I agree. I think it is their first chart topper too, GJ Sony. Great game, deserves all the acclaim and sales it is getting. To bad it is the only PS3 game in the top ten though, I'm sure there are more to come in the next 5 years.

MGS4 is teh awesome. BUY IT..>!11211

It sold almost one million units? 774,600 according to the article.. Lets say it sold another 300,000 with the bundled units so a total of 1million for the game that was suppose to be the Halo of the PS3? Halo3 sold that much in 10 minutes!

Edit- Dont make excuses.. Every PS3 fanboy in the world hyped up MGS4 like the second coming of christ.. Its obvious that many PS3 owners are not gamers when the biggest game they have only sold at the most 1 million in the first month... Also GoW is a big franchise but it won't sell as much Halo3 or GTA IV..

It was never supposed to be the Halo 3 of ps3. People were just hoping it sell 1mil period, to make a decent enough return. Its much more niche than halo3 which is pick up and play, theres no mega deep story, philosophical issues or stuff that like that in Halo 3. I think a more obvious 'blockbuster' game for ps3 would be God of War 3 when it releases.

I guess you never owned a PS one or Ps2 as you can see it's not "one" game on the PS family that sells its the whole variety which balances out in every genre hence the the best selling console in console history the PS2, and you don't get a skew in one country, again you get a balanced out spread across the gaming world, that's Sony's plan and has been their plan since the inception of the PS console, hence also why this year and next has a slew of worldwide satisfactory games being released, LBP, Killzone 2, WKS, Infamous, Resistance 2, and many more I am forgetting, yeah maybe not one can reach the milestone of Halo 3 but these games will be enjoyed by every kind of person and that's what will bring more customers to their business and that's what Sony is targeting

That was one of the best games I have ever played. MGS4 and Konami deserve all the praise they get.

Sony will see how important it is to invest in 3rd party games, I know they are doing a good job supporting their 1st party devs, but they shouldn't put all the eggs in one basket, right?

this game is sick! it deserves the game of the year award no doubt....gta was good but snake is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better and more gangsta

Game of The Decade

I really think it will take a few years till we see a game reaching (not even exceeding) that level of perfection!

I dont doubt that this game is great STORY wise but many 360 owners perfer actually playing games rather than watching em.. I'll stick to movies for stories..

edit- No I have not played it but judging from the reviews and what everybody has been saying about it I can tell its a great game.. But its a game that I probably will every play because I dont play games for the story. I play games to PLAY..

Nemo883771d ago

"You dont doubt" it has a great story- so have you actually played it or are you another one rehashing other's opinions?

Maybe 360-only users wouldnt like it though cos theres definitely a different demographic
