I believe if you look at the sales more closely Debaus you'll find that the sales for a few regions are missing for all of the NG games except for NG black (or whatever the PS3 one was called). I'm fairly sure that I heard the original NG sold at least 1m.

 According to Wikipedia (it's the best we've got), NG and NG:B sold about 1.5 million combined as of August '07.

NG2 will sell up to 3 million LTD. MGS 4 will sell up to 5 million LTD.

Sarcasm again? Obviously about NG2, but why would you joke about MGS4 (as the Sony-fan you are)?

Yesterday you said 3 million for MGS4 if it's lucky.

Son, you, are the joke. According the vgchartz data the highest selling NG game is, believe it or not, on the ps3 at roughly 400k. NG2 maybe getting alot of hype on the interwebz but it will be lucky to pass 1 million. As for mgs4 gamestop already said its the best selling ps3 game based off of preorders alone not to mention its bundled with the reintroduction to the 80 gig ps3. Mgs4 will have no problem reaching 3 million and wouldnt surpise me if it stopped at 5. And btw this topic has been proven false.

To bolded:

You're kidding right? You took the data VG Chartz doesn't have and made a presumption on Ninja Gaiden sales? So you must also think Ninja Gaiden for Xbox was only released in Japan since only Japanese data is there and Ninja Gaiden Black for Xbox was never released anywhere since no data is available. In fact you must think all of those other older Ninja Gaiden games for Nintendo never got released either since VG Chatz doesn't have their sales either.

 Ah, well then i stand corrected. Regaurdless i still believe mgs will overcome the 4 million mark and possibly 5 million.



 

 

 

I actually wouldn't be surprised if Ninja Gaiden does recieve higher scores from EGM. If you've watched the 1UP Show, you know that they



Even if this did happen, would it be a huge surprise? NG was an extremely well received game. NG was better reviewed than MGS3 and NGB was only slightly below MGS2 and above MGS.

I think some of us forget just how awesome NG was when it was released (that isn't to say it isn't awesome now because it is).



 
Debating with fanboys, its not

From a french preview about Ninja Gaiden,

The game seems to be VERY good. It is completely possible that it will get higher, but close, review score than MGS4.



Time to Work !

Its been confirmed that MGS4 has 9 hours of cinematics and 18 hours of gameplay.

==> it was a Xbox game. But not as famous as Halo3.

I m sure people wil buy it but there si not as much hype or expectation than behind MGS4 that is marketed since years.

NG is also a quite hard game. It is a sort of beatthem all for hardcore gamer that will get very good review but average sales (even if the increased Xbox360 install base compared to Xbox1 will help the sales)



Time to Work !

Cons: More cutscenes than gameplay

 

BTW, I don't see how that is a con? That's more like a positive in an MGS game. 



I m not sure at all ...

but this news is TRUE ? or FALSE ?
