MGS4 becomes best selling PS3 exclusive at over 5 million

12 Comments | posted

The highest selling PlayStation 3 exclusive used to be Gran Turismo 5 Prologue…yes, Prologue. With sales last reported at 4.65 million, you now know the importance of Gran Turismo 5’s full release to Sony and the PS3.

Now Kojima Production’s Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has over taken Polyphony Digital’s preview output, with Konami reporting a further 0.65 million sales in 2009 (April-December) to the game’s 2008 4.50 million sales. That puts Solid Snake’s final story at 5.15 million sold worldwide.

This sales feat also means that the PS3 exclusive has sold more than the PS2’s Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance (before re-releases) which stands around 4 million. The game still sits behind the original Meta Gear Solid’s 6 million and Metal Gear Solid 2’s approximate 7 million.

    Good for Konami, but I would have expected it to sell more then 0.65 mil last year. With the Slim and the new price cut, it should have sold at least 1mil.

    5.15 million is some achievement and im sure that figure will double over time.

    Impressive job there Konami. You just surpass the most popular Sony game.

    Just gives me more reason to get an PS3.

    It does surprise me to this day why konami hasn’t added trophy support to MGS4 and if memory serves me right did kojima veto this idea himself?

    Metal Gear Solid 4 is a great game, it is no surprise it sold so well. The game is really awesome and the story line is great. The multiplayer for the game is also awesome.
