I don't know how much of this is true but according to my local Gamestop there has been over 1 million MGS4 copy's reserved at Gamestop's nation wide and the game still has couple of months till release. When I placed my Pre-Order the guy told me that my order is 80 something in that store. He said some places had Pre-Orders of over 150. Now I know that this is not a reliable source but if true then thats good news for MGS!

I dont believe it. Maybe a million pre-orders world wide from every store taking pre-orders but not in just one chain of game stores in america.

That is some interesting information. If its true, then its going to be a very impressive first day. However it sounds to me more like false hope. I won't bash the information though, cause I love hearing stuff like this. Go Rumors!

Well like I said I don't know how much of this is true so you can believe it or not. I personally believe that MGS will sell over 2 million copy's in the first 2 weeks.

If we assume 150 orders average per store, across all gamestops... I don't think we're even CLOSE to a million.

It's being released simultaneously world-wide like another certain game did, so ya it probably will

well we would all love to believe this but its a bit far fetched for one chain alone. but it would be great if it were true.

[QUOTE="Thugnificent, post: 0]I don't believe it because most Store allow Pre Order after an official release date is official.[/quote]
Please, I could pre-order Final Fantasy XIII if I wanted too.

[QUOTE="A7MAD, post: 0]Sounds realistic, I assume this will sell a good 2-3.5million copies.[/quote]
That's a good number. I'm going for 3 million copies, 4 million if there lucky.

BTW I'm not sure if the guy said nationwide or world wide. Thats my fault for posting that. There were two guys talking to me so I had to listen to them both at once and might have missed something.

Its likely nation wide. I don't think GS from the states could get numbers from other regions.

[QUOTE="TGO, post: 0]1M US Pre-Orders nationwide is more believable, but not one store[/quote]
he didnt say one store, he meant the whole chain. and considering gamestop also owns EB games thats a hell of a lot of stores, but i still dont think its enough for one million nationwide. world wide without a problem, but not nation wide.

[QUOTE="hyelife, post: 0]I was told its a June release which is what IGN has aswell.[/quote]
Well, if it hasn't been confirmed by Konami that it's a June release (which it hasn't), then it is safe to assume that it is SOMETIME in the second quarter of this year. It can be speculated to be in June, but there is no date set in stone as of yet.

June is the last month of the second quarter so it most likely will be June.

The way this game is shaping up I can see an easy 2 million just on the game fan base alone. Add good reviews no question 3+ million copies sold is possible.

This will also increase the PS3 user base by huge numbers. Allot of MGS fans don't have the system and are just waiting for the game.

Remember all the anger (you could do a search on here) at gamestop for their bull**** about the ps3.. One thing Im sure about gamestop and most other stores is they dont know ****... But it would be nice...

If true then I need to pre-order soon, otherwise I won't be able to walk into a store and get it there the first day.

MGS4 pre-orders started well over a year ago and what's surprising is that GTA has been on pre-order for well over 2 years. 1 million might be excessive but the number is definitely huge. I'm actually quite surprised that retailers are already taking pre-orders this early.

I wonder how many of those special MGS pack with PS3 they got ready.
If MGS4 can kick in a million PS3 unit in middle of April,
it will force SE to hurry up on FF13.
