Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes Global Sales Likely Around 1 Million

NPD numbers are back for the Xbox ONE and PlayStation 4 title Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (which effectively introduces the forthcoming Phantom Pain installment of the franchise). With 204K of the sales being on PS4 / XO, 74K were still made on legacy Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles.

In Japan the game is looking at over 340,000 sales tabulated thus far – and with an estimate for Europe temporarily holding the spot for real EU numbers it’s easy to see that MGSV:GZ has likely sold about a million copies at this time.

Many have grabbed the game already and feel that it’s a title that gets them pumped up for the Phantom Pain release coming down the line. These numbers show that the installment of that effect is decent, the numerous price drops Ground Zeroes underwent before, after, and during its launch certainly didn’t hurt either.

More updates and adjustments to this info will be made by analysts as Konami releases more information thereby expanding the context of the MGSV sales conversation.
