Metal Gear Solid 4 sells five million, becomes highest-selling PS3 exclusive

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots has done some numbers since it’s June 2008 release date. In Konami’s Fiscal Year 2010 3rd Quarter Financial Results, the publisher reveals that Snake’s latest has sold over five million copies and has become PS3’s best-selling exclusive title. In this fiscal year alone, Metal Gear Solid 4 sold over 650,000 copies.

It’s no wonder why it’s the best. This is Hideo Kojima we’re talking about, a mastermind, a legend in the video game industry. Let him take his rightful bow.
