Forums - Sales Discussion - How well will Metal Gear Solid 4 sell in Japan?

well i may sound optimistic but i think mgs4 will do about 300,000 to 400,000 units its first week because of the limited edition bundle with gun metal ps3 alot of die hard fans will buy it and all the other bundles will give strong mgs sales, i think there will be a lot of suprises when this game comes out because its the first aaa title that the japanese will embrace



Around the Network

250k is a minimum.
Probably will be 350k.
In best case near 500k(bundles + game is a masterpiece).
~800k by the end of this year.

2009.04.30 - PS3 will OUTSELL x360 atleast by the middle of 2010. Japan+Europe > NA.


Gran Turismo 3 - 1,06 mln. in 3 weeks with around 4 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Gran Turismo 4 - 1,16 mln. with 18 mln. PS2 on the launch.

Final Fantasy X - around 2 mln. with 5 mln. PS2 on the launch.
Final Fantasy X-2 - 2.4 mln. with 12 mln. PS2 on the launch.

 

1.8 mln. PS3 today(2008.01.17) in Japan. Now(2009.04.30) 3.16 mln. PS3 were sold in Japan.
PS3 will reach 4 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 25k.

PS3 may reach 5 mln. in Japan by the end of 2009 with average weekly sales 50k.
PS2 2001 vs PS3 2008 sales numbers =) + New games released in Japan by 2009 that passed 100k so far

I'll say given the comments in here it'll do roughly between 250 - 275 K. HW boost from ~10 K previous weeks to 30-35K with a lot of Gun Metal additions.

You know... this forum really should try and get more Japanese people in, that should be interesting. It would then finally be possible to get some answer on what's really going on in the Japanese market, what the consumers are thinking etc. I'm really curious about general consensus there.

The PS3 market is pretty well defined.

I think hardware boosts are going to be quite significant, and will also ride on the back of the Olympics too.

Also, there are a lot of people waiting for this game, and the advertising campaign has only just started. Definitely the biggest PS3 game in Japan to date, so let's say software at 750,000 total.

Good analysis.

I say 250k-300k firstweek and LTD 600K.

The limited PS3 bundle will raise sales.

And how much hardware will it move, in Japan, Crazzy?



I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.
I don't need your console war.

NO NO, NO NO NO.

Hardware:

- I think we can all agree 100,000 first week (keep in mind the supposedly 'sold out' bundle)

- Say 40,000 2nd week, then a sustained drop (30,000, 20,000, 15,000)

Software

- Obviously minimum 100,000 say 250,000-300,000 first week

-500,000-600,000 overall in Japan



I hope my 360 doesn't RRoD

 There is a limited 100k MGS4 bundle.  People expect that it will be sold out the first week for sure that's why 100k first week sales.






We will be lucky if hardware gets to 70k for MGS4.
