Metal Gear Solid V sells nearly 500,000 units in Japan - Famitsu Charts

Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid swansong sold almost half a million copies across PS3 and PS4 in its debut week.

That’s according to the latest data from Famitsu, which shows that the PS4 SKU of open-world stealth game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain shifted over 315,000 units last week, rocketing to the top of the retail software charts.

The Sony consoles really carry this franchise

MGS is being associated with Playstation.

Those numbers shows that Sony needs to take Kojima Productions and makes them First Party because they will sell like hot cakes.

Kojima Productions and Naughty Dog developing for PS4 will mean huge success for Sony.

i agree and i actually see sony pushing to sign kojima. he always said positive things about sony and always liked the playstation brand and its fans

that would be an announcement don't you think? if sony were to say we have signed kojima to a 3 game deal at playstation event

Sony may want it, but Kojima is also cool with Microsoft/Xbox now. Going exclusive - wouldn't really make sense business wise for Kojima Productions. Why have your product only on one brand when you can have it on multiple and still achieve quality?

Ive a feeling they would save that announcement for PSX.

MGS don't play in Japan!

Hello, my name is Bathyj and I'm Metal Gear Solid addict.

I've played it 45 hours in just over a week, roughly the same number of hours I spent at work in the same time frame, only when I'm playing Metal Gear I'm not thinking about work, but when I'm at work Im thinking about Metal Gear.

In fact the only reason Im typing this is because Im at work right now and cant play it and I would gladly drag my co-workers down with a tranq headshot if I could just check how much longer my final R&D platform has to go before its finished.

I realise the first step is admitting you have a problem but if I can just get my R&D to 36 and my Medical to 31 I can get that Suppressed Tranquilizer Sniper Rifle and it will all be worth it and the friends and family I've neglected will understand the sacrifices Ive made.

That, or I will say goodnight.
