Three million and counting for MGS4
Konami said prior to release that they wouldn't be able to recoup development costs unless they sold 1 million units on day one. That goal was reached very easily as they sold roughly 1.5 million copies on June 12.
It has been confirmed that Japan has sold roughly 500,000 units, with Europe coming in with a modest 1 million. While these figures are prominent, the exact number of units sold is still up in the air. However, what is known, is that Metal Gear Solid 4 has shipped roughly three million copies worldwide as of June 26.
On top of these impressive shipping numbers Kaz Hirai has claimed that the title has also helped increase hardware sales for the PlayStation 3 as well.
As soon as the sales figures are in, we'll be sure to keep you guys up to date.
