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.

Metal Gear Solid 5 New Features Revealed

We already know that the Upcoming MGS 5 contains Huge, Open, Areas and other Features such as Base Building, not so much as in Ground zeroes as it serves as a Big tutorial to get Players back into the mix. But The Phantom Pain will contain all these and more such as Mission Creators etc not only being limited to Consoles but also on Smart-glass devices etc.

The newest features to Come into the scene are not so much as new in the series but will be Fantastic in the new open world theme.

Kojima said in an Interview just last week that Players will be able to send scouts to Recon the Map, Highlighting Routes and Areas which will help Snake through his Missions, Not much was spoken about it but I’m guessing it will serve much like the Scout feature in MGS: Portable Ops(PSP) in which Sending scouts to maps will allow them to Get Ammo and special items from the map they were assigned.

Another Feature Kojima talked about in a Alert Podcast was Co-op and having a Partner help the player in these missions. But unlike Peace Walker, thier wont be 4 Player co-op but 2 player, and Concept art for this supposed Character was shown to the people in the Podcast. The Podcast was in Japanese and was actually aired 4 months ago and has not been elaborated on properly until recent.

Their are also Japanese Alert Podcasts which can be found here: http://www.konami.jp/kojima_pro/radio/kp_alert/podcast.xml.

MGS5 is shaping up to be a Milestone in the MGS franchise and no release date has been announced yet, but the game is expected to release before the fiscal year 2012.
