I know - but image in the number combined.
Its not that popular in US nor in the UK.

The Metal Gear Series is just all the following : FTW,EPIC,PWNAGE,OWNAGE.

The fact is I am not surprised at how well it is doing. Its the last game in the series and NOBODY is going to want to miss out.

This is only in Japan alone. I know MGS4 is selling like Hotcakes over here. I look forward to the Total. I am sure it will beat Halo into the floor lol.

Also for PS3 sale boosts...well this was just a given in my eyes.

lol regardless of whether its "not as popular in the US and UK" or not..those figures top the charts, from a single country alone.

combined with the other perhaps 400,000 or more to come from the rest of the world...platinum status within a couple of months.

my copy gets here end of this week will be my introduction into this series haha. i'll make sure to read up a bit and pay close attention to the flashback cutscenes.

All I can say is that I'll be adding to the PS3 sales this christmas as I am getting one soon. Not just for MGS4, but for the loads of other great games on the PS3. But 77,208 units, that's just amazing

The PS3 broke or the game didn't work?

I read on VG Chartz that MGS4 sold 1.8 million copies in the FIRST day ALONE worldwide. So I wouldn't be surprised if it reached 2.5 million by the end of the week. PS3 sales JUMPED up like crazy too. I work at Best Buy right by the corporate offices and we sold our bundles out RIGHT away and have been selling 40gb's like no other. I did see ONE xbox 360 sold lol. It looked lonely.
