Metal Gear Solid V Sales Blip: Well this is a pleasant surprise. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has sold over 5 million copies world wide. This makes it one of the biggest releases of the year. Kind of ironic as the same report also shows that Konami’s #1 best performing division is it’s video game division, which may explain its recent “There will be more Metal Gear” statements; perhaps they’re rethinking going all in on the Pachinko machine and spa business model.
