The action adventures survival game from publisher and developer Konami - Metal Gear Survive - sold 103,651 units first week at retail, according to VGChartz estimates.
I was expecting lower numbers
100k week 1?? Damn thats a lot more copies than I expected....oh the shame is real....
Battle Royal mode anyone?
103,651 of you, are a problem.
Why because some people like a game that you don't ?. Grow up, this game is actully a good survival game and most people would be put off by the difficulty in the first half of the game because it does not hold your hand like most games these days, and actually gives you a challange. And as far as micro trans go i have finished story mode leveled up to 53 online had a blast and never spent a penny doing so.
"Yaaaaah," after hours upon hours I have more bits of metal, fabric and wood!! Good times!
Well for starters its not a MG game, secondly even its own devs think its crap and if you dont believe me you can check out the little message they left Konami and thirdly and probably most importantly its another MT fest. So yes, 103,651 people are a problem
Found the positive Steam user review^. The game is trash
Shame you supported this game...
Do they call you "miss the point guy"?
Not gonna debate, just no mang.
Don't bother trying to change the minds of blind fools that think Kojima gives a damn about them as people or MGS fans. These folks have on their blinders and are more than content to hate the game before giving it a real try. F* Konami and all that other sheep mentality stuff idiots say.
Shame you all care so much about what another person enjoys. Like sad loser shame. Who cares...
To be honest, they're probably just younger audiences who are more attracted to the metal gear name than realizing the closed door politics of Konami. They probably know little of the Kojima fallout.
Right... because its okay for Kojima to screw over David Hayter, but its not okay for Konami to fire the beloved Kojima. A man works 10 plus years as a voice actor, putting up with repeated insult after insult by Kojima, and he doesnt even get a damn call notifying him they are going with another actor. That's just business of course, Kojima simply has every right to go with a different voice actor... But Konami doesnt have the right to fire Kojima... I am sorry, but its called karma. Kojima was an arrogant asshole and thought nothing of screwing over David Hayter, who is equally responsible for making MGS as popular as it is in the West. Kojima got to feel exactly how David Hayter did. Karma is a harsh mistress.
@Cleft Big boss and snake were not in the game, there for David Hayter wasn't required. We played as a medic who was under the under standing he was Big Boss. Take a look at grey fox and see if he was ever voiced by hayter
Well im 35 have loved every MGS game and enjoy Survive for the great Survival game that it is not for the MG name. Yes i agree what happens in these companys is wrong but i leave the politics out of my gaming, there is enough of that crap in real life. I game to have fun and survive gave me that, will i still be buying Death Stranding of course because i also like Kojima's games. But if Konami ever make more MGS games, ie MGS6 or MGS3 REMAKE, hell even more Silent Hill and Castlevania's im there day one.
How so? MGS is a good game, try playing it. No? Yea, I know you won't. But that's the real problem. Deciding without knowing shit after watching a few influencer videos. ..The people who are a problem are the people who bought ground zeroes, a 15 minute demo, for 40 dollars and still cheered Kojima's name. THAT'S a REAL problem.
Still Ground Zero's was more Metal Gear than even V in my opinion.
Kojima fanatics are up there with pro Naruto enders and DBZ Supers fans. Delusional and genuinely ignorant.
Sam Fisher: "Then its just me"
Am I the only one who doesn't case about the Kojima/Konami nonsense? I didn't buy the game simply because it just didn't grab my attention enough - it actually looks tolerable though - just not worth the price of a full game & these days, the time to download it.
@ChristoperJack Nope, your not the only one, I couldn't give a stuff about Konami/Kojima, unfortunately people on these forums are very vocal, and if you don't believe the same things as them they down vote everything. I mean the people that hold Kojima on some sort of pedestal seem to think he's perfect, little do they his resume is huge, and not everything on there is AAA gold. At the end of the day I couldn't give a rats ass if BG Solid isn't a "true metal gear game" or whether Kojima had anything to do with it, if its a good game then it should sell.
Congratulations and well-deserved, Konami. You deserve all the low sell that you are getting.
Way too much. Noone should buy this cash grab
That equates to 6 million$. I wonder how much did it take to make and market but they still must be losing money/ barely profit.
That's only 1 week. Surely it's made more than that, no?
Glad I didn't buy it
You 100K are holding gaming back from destroying these Microtransaction BS. Shame on you
103,000 gamers that didn't read anything about Konami's practices. 651 casual gamers who really don't give a shit about the actual industry or how bad games bought make things worse. Miserable, I know, but it's time for a change of what paying customers accept now.
The power of fanaticism.
Those are abysmal figures for a Metal Gear game, but I'm actually surprised it even did that well.
I trust the folks that go this game are really enjoying it. I am a fan of Metal Gear Solid as directed by Kojima, I have no interest in this game as Kojima's ability to tell a good story is removed from this experience. Furthermore, if Kojima was as bad as some folks say that he is and side with Konami (won't ever understand that part, maybe those folks just like being contrarians), then why did Sony snatch him up as soon as he was freed from his Kojima contract? Konami is not the juggernaut that they once were, hell I would argue that Kojima is the reason that Konami has stayed relevant in the gaming world. They not only pissed off Kojima supporters but even other established entities in the gaming world. They ALL denounced Konami and sided with Kojima, yes he is the bad guy in this right??? Oh PALeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease. Konami.....screw you and all you do. You gets no love from the gaming world because of your actions....hell you even said so yourself that you were leaving the gaming industry in favor of Tamagotchi 2.0 or whatever the heck they call it.
as Kojima's ability to tell a good story is removed from this experience What like MGSV ?
MGSV was definitely not the best of Kojima but we all also know he did not really want to do this game. Guns of the Patriots should have been the last one but Konami wanted more. Is that all you chose to focus on with my post?
