Forums - Sales Discussion - Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes PlayStation 4 Sales Triple Xbox Oneís

"In its financial earnings call for the quarter, Konami revealed its sales figures for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. As expected, the game found a much larger attachment rate among its traditional PlayStation fanbase than it did with the Xbox One’s. Roughly three times as many people bought the PlayStation 4 version of the game as the Xbox One, showing that the series still has a firm home on Sony platforms.

The fact that PlayStation 4 has also been outselling the Xbox One on similar ratio also might have something to do with it. Konami reports a ¥48.61 billion ($472.6 million) in total revenue for the Q1 of this year, a jump of ¥1.36 billion ($13.2 million) over last year’s first quarter.The entire Metal Gear Solid franchise sold 570,000 units total over last year’s 190,000. However, the major boost in revenue came from the ¥3.5 billion ($34 million) generated by Konami’s pachinko business, which climbed 400 percent.

Overall, Konami posted ¥220 billion ($2.2 billion) in revenue for the entire financial year, a 1.1 percent rise over last year. The sad part is that it is doing it without its traditional game development, only focusing on a single franchise and other ventures like pachinko, free-to-play mobile games, trading cards, and health clubs."

I guess having MGS4 as a PS3 exclusive has kept the franchise tied strongly with Playstation? :D

That's some really terrible formatting, if anyone can help me figure out how to properly space it, that would be much appreciated!

Some sites do that. Just go in and space it out.

 

Also..I would hope the sales are higher since the PS4 has sold more units.

There you go ^^ Just copy and paste the stuff in the quote box into the OP.

If that doesn't work for some reason you can try just adding spaces yourself.



This shouldn't come off as a surprise to anyone considering this is MGS we're talking about..

Thanks for trying to help xD, it just went back to being all squished together. Spacing it out seems to have no effect..so strange.

I spaced it in notepad then copied it again to make it a unique block of text (it may copy paste as 2 spaces rather than 1, just just delete the extra one).

I WILL GET THIS TO WORK, DAMN IT!



Snake or Big boss could very well be Playstation mascots.

Pretty much this. As far as I remember, MGS and PS always worked together shoulder to shoulder with MGS4 even being an exclusive to PS3.

MGS is associated with PS. Hell it should have been an exclusive like MSG4.
