Metal Gear Solid 4 Moves 4M, Konami Makes $1.5B

Continuing from my previous MGS4 post about game sales...

The stealth action game is still a gravy train at Konami. With total Metal Gear series sales amounting to 4.33 million. That's more than a third of the Konami's total game sales for the six month period, with the games division pulling in about $950 million (USD) in revenue.

PlayStation 3 software accounted for 38% of the company's "digital entertainment" sales, which totaled 11.75 million games. Profit for the six month period was $232.8 million, with Konami's video game business doing a healthy $268 million in operating income.

With these figures in front us, I expect a 360 version of MGS4 in the future as well as a MGS5 (regardless of whether Hideo Kojima is in or not)
