Konami Japan has confirmed that the Metal Gear franchise has moved 31 million sales globally since its inception in 1987.
Created by Hideo Kojima, the stealth-action franchise debuted on MSX2 a whopping 25 years ago, and following a sequel in the early 90s was reborn on PlayStation in 1998 with Metal Gear Solid.
The last full-fledged sequel, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, arrived in 2008 on PlayStation 3, with Konami recently remastering Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 and Peace Walker in high-definition for PS3 and 360.
As for the future, Kojima-san has indicated he will begin working on MGS5 at some point, and some concept art has leaked depicting what appears to be Big Boss in the company of a bloodhound. Still, nothing has been confirmed as of yet.
Stay tuned to PSU.com for more details.

Somewhere in a golden throne, a Bobby Kotick is laughing furiously at those numbers! Congrats to Kojima and his team though, now get off your bum and make a real MGS title for PS3. ;P

I still think Metal Gear as a series is underappriciated. Consider the fact that a boring, lazily developed game like Modern Warfare 3 can sell MILLIONS in ONE NIGHT.
People just don't appriciate a good game anymore.
Metal Gear has story that makes you think, innovative gameplay, expert delivery, great voice acting, superb graphics, well thought out plotlines (OK, MGS4 was fairly convoluted, but still), and characters that you actually CARE about.
In my eyes, it's the finest game series ever created.
Then again, I am a raging fanboy for MGS...

agree 100% with Drebin296, VASTLY underrated series. So much attention to detail in the Metal Gear Solid games... and each one is a new experience. I hope Metal Gear never dies. MGS3 could be the greatest game ever created.

Just remember Mr Kojima the Playstation Community has given so much so don`t do multiplatform games `cause the quality suffers greatly.
