This is actually disappointing. This is on 4 platforms and had an extremely high budget.

Actually it's on 5 platforms.



I stand corrected!

So, does that mean that it is around 6 million for MGS, 7 million for MGS2, 5 million for MGS3, 6 million for MGS4 and 6 million for MGS5?

Both MGS and MGS2 are over 7 million (when you include VR missions and Substance.

Metal Gear Solid 4 and 5 are at 6 million 

Metal Gear Solid 3 is under 5 million.

Yeah, I didn't add VR Missions into the total as I believe that it does not contain MGS. I wonder why MGS3 is that low when many consider it to be the best in the franchise.

Well done Konami.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

Nice numbers, just goes to show how stupid Konami was with the whole Kojima situation.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Well, game was profitable. At least Kojima and Koji Team would be proud of achieving such sales.

Konami was so stupid to not trust Kojima.

The game in as of so far likely has not been profitable (factoring in development, marketing, and other cursory costs for the total budget), and if it has become so it has crawled to that point in packaged sales or been carried through DLC. The amount of money they will make from this, if they ever get the project to be profitable on the whole, will be too small to justify... and this is in a scenario where they even chopped off the end of the game to just get the product shipped and finished.

...Hence why Kojima was fired. He took too long and ballooned the budget for far too little return. They didn't fire him for being capable, they fired him for the opposite reason from a bottomline perspective.



and it could be many many more without bad PR
