Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes

Konami didn’t have a very busy first quarter of the 2015 fiscal year, which ran for three months and ended on June 30th, and it revealed increased revenues for the quarter. Sales were up by 6.6 percent at ¥48.61 billion ($472.6 million). Net income was up by 45.6 percent to ¥1.36 billion ($13.2 million) and about 570,000 copies of Metal Gear Solid games were sold in the quarter.

What’s interesting is the breakdown of the sales. PS4 sales accounted for 12 percent of total game sales for Konami in this quarter. The Xbox One, by comparison, only accounted for 4 percent. If you look at the sales for the financial year ending on 2014, then the PS4 version still accounted for 8 percent of games sold while the Xbox One version accounted for 3 percent. Whichever way you look at it, the PS4 is the preferred choice among those who bought Ground Zeroes.

Konami is currently predicting revenues of ¥220 billion ($2.14 billion) which shows a 1.1 percent increase year-over-year and expected net income is likely to be ¥7 billion ($68 million), which will be up by 82.6 percent. Could The Phantom Pain be imminent? We’ll find out as 2015 nears.

    I dont’ think a lot of most xbox users were going to pay for a gimped demo of a game

  • Starman

    I own both systems ..and didn’t purchase it for either one , I’m not paying for a game that’s truly , just a demo / prelude … ppl who only have a PS4 don’t have much to play , so yeah , they will jump on most third parties …I’m just saying ..

    To the MOD-SWUAD , you took down my reply to ‘CEO Kaz Hirai’ but his was ok to keep up there …. and ‘Mary Roberts’ Who is clearly “SOLICITING” and I flagged her but she is still there and you deleted mine …. I don’t get it …. I moved to this gaming site to get away from IGN… because it was always ok for PS fans to say what the want do what they want , and not be reprimanded … I thought it would be different here , but I guess I was wrong ..

    All 3rd party games sell better on Ps4 compared to Xone.

    I don’t think its that big of a deal to be honest. I didn’t think the difference in visuals between the two was that significant, I played them both and I thought the xbox one version didn’t look that bad. If anything I enjoyed the xbox one version better because of the controller. I don’t think the visuals had that much to do with the disparity in sales.

    But its only natural the sony platform to sell more. Metal Gear Solid has been on the sony platform exclusively for years. So it makes more sense the majority of the Metal Gear fans to be on sony’s platform. The only Metal Gear games that have been on the xbox is a port and HD remake.

    You also take into consideration that the PS4 has sold more, so there is larger pool to get sales from compared to the xbox one.
