Metal Gear Solid V, A Hideo Kojima Game, has sold 6 million copies

Konami has released its financial reports for the most recent fiscal quarter, and you’d be surprised to learn that it even mentions video games. However, it’s true. Konami has devoted a few lines, in between its health, gym, and pachinko results, to mention that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has sold 6 million units to date. The game, developed by Hideo Kojima, is the only major video game mentioned in the entire report, unless you want to count Yu-Gi-Oh as still being relevant.

You have to wonder if 6 million is enough to call the game a success. I remember when the Tomb Raider reboot launched to 5 million copies, and Square Enix called it a flop. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was developed by two studios in two different countries with an enormous staff, the MVP of game directors, and a proprietary, high-end graphics engine.
