MGSV: The Phantom Pain takes 4 spots in the Tsutaya Charts top 5

Japanese retailer Tsutaya has published their sales charts for the week of 31/8 – 6/9, which of course includes the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. So how did the game do? Well, 4 of the 5 spots in the top 5 are filled by Konami’s latest title.

The first place goes to the special edition for PlayStation 4. The regular version for PS4 is at number 3, followed by the regular version for PS3 at number 4, and the special edition for PS3 at 5.

As for the Xbox version, it isn’t in the overall top 20 chart, but in the specific platform chart for Xbox One, the game sits at number 1 (special edition) and 2 (regular edition).

Here is a summary of Tsutaya’s report on the sales, from NeoGAF:

Tsutaya’s report

– Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had overwhelming sales and faced some stock problems.
– The PS4 version sold the double of the PS3’s one. The special version sold the most at Tsutaya’s stores, but that’s because the standard version had lack of stock.
– Adding sales of both hardware versions (PS3 and PS4), it surpassed Metal Gear Solid IV debut. 
– Hardware was also strong for PS4, it sold 3 times more than the past week.

  • So, anyone else here finished the game? Did you like the ending? I loved it. Loved the gameplay, loved the story. I have a lot of issues with the game, don’t get me wrong, but I still think it’s magnificent, easily 10/10 for me, one of the greatest games I’ve played.

    • Gatsu

      Well I’m happy to read positive comments for once :). I’m very much loving the game so far, but haven’t finished. Not sure what happens in the ending, but whatever it is I don’t think it makes me hate the game. Because it’s been a masterpiece so far.

      I don’t remember when was the last time I enjoyed playing something so much. Fallout 4 might be next, but this will easily keep me busy until then :).

      On topic, I’m not surprised that TPP sells so well :D.

      P.S. I started playing TPP a while ago and got notification that my FOB had been raided and lost shitloads of personnel, lol. Last time I played I remember being offline so got no invasions :(…what the hell. Can they do it while I’m not playing?
      This calls for revenge…

      • I tried FOB once, attacked someone, killed all of his staff, killed him with a rocket launcher then, when he respawned, killed him again… But I was standing too close so I died too. That’s the moment I decided I don’t want to play FOBs, too stressful :D.

        So wait… “Positive comment for once”? Are people complaining about the game? Madness!

        • Gatsu

          No but mostly about the ending :). But it’s ok because not everyone like same things.

          Btw listening to Nuclear while sneaking gives the feels.

          • I never found the tape for Nuclear D: But I love doing side ops and listening to the remaining story tapes I haven’t yet managed to go through.

            I for one loved the ending, but I guess there will always be people who don’t like something, especially if they have strong expectations and they end up unfulfilled.

          • Gatsu

            Actually I’m not sure is it in the game, but on PC can put custom soundtrack ;)… Game got superb OST without adding own though.

            By the way, TPP OST I pre-ordered long time ago arrives tomorrow 😀 oooh yeah.

          • Shalashaska

            WHERE DID YOU FIND THE TAPE FOR NUCLEAR?
            Man I just do the boss walk around mother base while listening to tapes in the rain. AWEEESSSOOMMEE..

      • JJBYACH

        It won’t. After sleeping on it and re-evaluating it, I think this is easily one of the best metal gear story lines – I would rank it #2 right under Snake Eater.

    • Shalashaska

      What i dont like is how something just arent mentioned.. like Ahem.. paz.. i didnt find her until i went roaming around medical platform.. its cool to hide it..but atleast give a hint :/
      Havent gotten the “true ending” yet.. just finished mission 30
      But yes I am loving it.
      I need more GMP AND FUEL RESOURCES!!! :’(

      • solidsnack

        fuckin fuel man there really is an oil crisis!!!

        • Shalashaska

          lol so true.
          Just finished the defeat quiet mission on extreme.. mission 30+ … damn.. BEST SNIPER FIGHT EVER.
          I need fuel, plants and SAME DAMN way to stop fights breaking out on my mother base :/

          • solidsnack

            quiet is one of my favourite characters so far she’s so cool. and not because of the nudity haha

          • She’s a really well developed character in my opinion, especially for a character which doesn’t speak.

          • Shalashaska

            Ahem. Did you get the torture cutscene yet? I felt like grabbing her face and kissing her cheek in the end of that xD

          • I got all the cutscenes I think :). I love how, when you have maxed relationship with her, when you look at her in the chopper she stands up and looks at you and slightly smiles as if she wanted to say something and then she goes back and looks as if she was friendzoned.. Or soldierzoned?

          • Shalashaska

            haha well its sad.. its clear that Quiet is in love with Big boss and his legend.. if youve seen the torture scene, you’ll know why she cant say anything.. I Am really in love with her. Really. Boss wasnt saying it, but i surely was murmering “i love you” at the tv..
            oh and the romantic rain dance … i was “wow”

          • I wonder if Boss believed that love can bloom on the battlefield *wink wink*. There are, unfortunately, more sad things in the game. I think it’s the first game which made me feel such things (not only sadness, other weird emotions). But hush, no spoilers 😀

          • Shalashaska

            True. That. I swear I almost cried once.
            and another time was like “woah wth i cant believe that just happened.. woah woah woah”

          • Shalashaska

            Lol so true. I find myself continously closing my idroid in the chopper to admire her animations. As for her character, love It. My fav character after Ocelot.

      • Oh yea, fuel is scarce. But I’ve almost got my MB fully expanded!

        • Shalashaska

          Ive got alot of fights happening … aka.. morale is down.. get the vmp in red and ur tereated to the awesome big boss stabbing himself cutscene. MOST BEAUTIFUL CUTSCENE EVER.

          • Heh, I only managed to get this cutscene yesterday after I have already completed the game :).

          • Gatsu

            I LOOOOOOOOVED THAT SCENE. I haven’t got the balls to try the Extreme missions yet XD… Been doing the “main side ops”, but I think gonna do others next.

          • Shalashaska

            I know.. i wanted to slow that damn scene down to check out the scene. Freaking amazing. Its amazing how, although the cutscenes are less in time, but MAN ARE THEY DAMN GORGEOUS to look at every second.
            That scene in mission 30 where in the trailers you see The tanks and choppers.. that ending.. was me going wow AND WHAT THE HELL! Both at the same time.. so many twists!

          • No Place For Hayter

            “I haven’t got the balls to try the Extreme missions”
            read “balls” as “equipment”

  • Gatsu

    I’m not surprised that TPP sells so well :D.

  • VFox

    Back since the launch of tpp, haven’t finished the game but its true that some content got cut? WHAT THE HELL?!

    • There was one additional mission which never got finished and was barely done – the available material is on the collector edition’s DVD and can be found on the internet easily. It’s a shame it didn’t end up in the game but it doesn’t really influence anything that is already in the game – it only explains some unfinished plot trails.

      • PhantomSnake

        Where can I find it on the internet to watch?

        • Look on youtube for “Mission 51 phantom pain”.

          • PhantomSnake

            Thank you

  • solidsnack

    I’m not surprised it’s gotten so much good press I just played TPP for 16 hours straight and I could go for more if I didn’t have to head back to my flat! animal camo 4 life.

    • Gatsu

      Zoo ftw!!!

      • solidsnack

        I only have a few different types right now and one bird that I tranq’d mid flight 😀

      • Oh right, the achievement! I need to concentrate on animals more.

  • solidsnack

    when can we post our own chopper pics? 🙁

    • Gatsu

      Nice idea :D. I think it’s okey as long as don’t contain spoilers.

  • Gatsu

    Wow I love Quiet ;D… especially after seeing this one special cutscene. Not gonna spoil it though.

    • Which special cutscene? Because there was a couple with her that are special… Wait, now that I think about it I am pretty sure I know which you mean. Are you talking about the one with the weather? 😛

      • Gatsu

        Shhhhhh :3… be quiet.

        • Be quiet? No thanks, I’d rather be able to speak :D. I loved how it made more sense when you listened to that one tape which explained some things (I am pretty sure no one will have any idea what I am talking about now)!

          • Shalashaska

            her torture scene. and the rain scene. and the burning scene. ALL MADE ME LOVE HER. Hope Im not spoiling anything.. no one can possibly guess..

    • Shalashaska

      I know.. i went like “awww I LOVE YOU QUIEETTTT”

    • I wonder what were people’s reactions when they learnt why she is so unclothed – it sold the character to me, makes sense in-universe and is pretty clever… And I kinda guessed parts of it myself :D.

      • Shalashaska

        Lol that bit freaked me out.. although.. i did use my binoculars alot during that bit. Haha

      • JJBYACH

        The important question is: were you ashamed of your words and deeds?

        • Ha! No, because in Kojima I trust and thus I had no words or deeds I needed to be ashamed of!

    • Solid PhoeniX

      As soon as I unlocked quiet I stayed with her for a while. . . I love having her. D Dog is a Close 2nd coz Im a dog person. I will make use of all of my buddies tho for each different play style

      • Greyfox98

        Ditto man

    • Shalashaska

      HOLY SHIT.. I JUST VISITED HER CELL AND SHOT THE GLASS across her cell.. she gets up and starts having a bath.. Ive been there like 100times.. first time she did that.. :O Is it the bond lvl?

      • Gatsu

        Hmm not sure :). I haven’t tried that…
        I always just ummm…stare at her most of the time when I’m there <_<.
        http://38.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lzvdn868uk1ro1rkmo1_500.gif

        • lmao

        • Shalashaska

          I went in.. only time will tell was on speakers.. somewhere after 6am.. shot the glass thats opposite her cell.. look at her.. she gets up.. looks at boss for a while and then starts having a bath like she does when you first know why she is dressed that way.. haha wow.. i gotta test this more.. got family around now so cant xD

        • xD she does not let me develop my weapons peacefully. She knows what she is doing, I always finish buying evolution for HER equipment.
          BTW, you should have embedded this full legendary scene with Roshi. I mean till C18 compresses his head to the sunglasses explosion… xDxDxD

      • ima do that wen i get home

      • Robin Besch

        she starts taking the bath after certain bond level

        • Shalashaska

          Its gotta be 100bond level because i remember coming here at 80-90.. there was nothing..

          • Robin Besch

            Its pretty random i think.
            She did it for me with bond lvl 60 or 70

          • Shalashaska

            Hmmm.. maybe its how many times you go there then.. mayb after a certain amount of times you enter her cell area that you trigger that scene.. the first time that thing is triggered is when ocelot calls you into her confinement space..
            either that or the chance percentage is low .. i visited that place so much for the songs and just to check out ahem :/

    • Tong Ninja

      The one involving rain? A very well done scene. 🙂

      Only one piece of dialogue was spoken in that scene, but the facial expressions/body movements really sold/captured the scene. The subtlety along with the background music really showed a different side to Snake that we haven’t seen since MGS3.

      • Greyfox98

        I SHIP IT!!!!!

    • Danny Patten

      Yes.

    • Ozzman

      “It’s raining” cutscene?

  • Such a masterpiece.

  • PhantomSnake

    There is a lot of sadness in this game. It is a masterpiece though. I can tell Kojima and his team put their hearts into the game and put a lot of thought and emotion into it.

    • Gatsu

      They also had to finish it during difficult situation at Konami, so have to give some credit for managing that ;).

      • PhantomSnake

        Yeah I can tell Kojima put his feelings of depression and anger towards Konami in this title.

  • PrinceHeir

    I have the Special Edition and it’s awesome 🙂
