Metal Gear Solid Series has Sold 40 Million Units Worldwide, 4 Million in 2014

By   /   Jan 3, 2015

Metal Gear Solid Is One of Biggest gaming franchises in the industry today. Hideo Kojima’s masterpiece is loved and played by millions of fans. Just last year, we saw the release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and we all are patiently waiting for The Phantom Pain.

Every release adds to the overall sales figure of the series and after the launch of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the accumulated sales figures of this franchise have reached to 40 million. That’s right! our favorite game has sold 40 million units worldwide. The news was shared by the Japanese Famitsu Magazine.

Accumulated sales were also revealed in February last year which showed the sales to be 35.7 million. This means that in 2014 alone, MGS managed to sell more than 4 million copies.

Surely, this is an occasion worth celebrating and to do so, Konami is offering Metal Gear Solid HD Collection at a discounted price. Unfortunately, this offer is limited to the Japanese PlayStation Store. PlayStation owners should rush to PSN if they wish to grab a copy for only ¥2000. HD collection is available at this price till January 7th.

Sales will go even higher in the future as MGS is now available on PC as well. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes was released on PC recently and has been received well.

Same will be the case with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain which is going to be available on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4 sometime in 2015.

Are you an MGS fan? What do think of this impressive milestone? Let us know in the comments.
