While Peace Walker boosted Konami’s profit a whomping 40%, their DS game, Love Plus, which is sadly, a girlfriend sim, pushed the sales forward by 18%.

“Sales of Peace Walker progressed steadily, with the game receiving favorable reviews-it became the first PSP title to receive a perfect score of 40 points in an industry magazine’s cross review. Furthermore, co-op modes, etc., which leverage the characteristic features of handheld gaming devices, are being well received by hardcore Metal Gear fans,” Konami stated.
