Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on PS4 outsells XB1 version three to one

Konami has released their financial results for the first quarter of the financial year (the past three months ending June 30th 2014).

In this time, the Metal Gear series sold 570.000 units, making up a large portion of their 1.29 million software units. The release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes on March 18 probably accounted for the largest portion of those numbers.



For the overall software sold, the main platform was the PlayStation 3, followed by PlayStation 4 and Nintendo 3DS. Overall, PlayStation systems make up more than two thirds of the sales.

On the new consoles, we can see 12% sales on PlayStation 4 compared to 4% on Xbox One, of all games sold on consoles and PC. Since Ground Zeroes is the only game Konami has released for the new systems so far, this means the game sold three times as much on PlayStation 4 as it did on Xbox One. The PS4 version accounts for 8% of Konami’s games sold, the XB1 version for 3%.

Konami also reports strong repeat sales for Ground Zeroes, meaning it sold well to people who bought earlier installments of the series.
