Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros has sold over one million copies, Konami has announced. The figure refers to physical copies only, we are currently unaware of what the number would be with digital copies included.
I guess that a lot of people would be pretty surprised at this, given the game's length. This is something that I covered in my review (which you can read here). To boil it down for you... if you like MGS, you should get it. I guess I can be a little more vocal here than I was in my review on my feelings of the length. Honestly, it isn't an issue for me at all and it shouldn't be for you.
I have put in more than a few hours into perfecting the campaign, perfecting every angle. I practised every mission again and again until every move the enemy could make was already anticipated by me. They were helpless. I liked that feeling a lot.
I knew what the game was before I paid for it and so did everyone else. This really is a non-issue. Realistically, it's possible that there was an expectation of MGS:V to be ready for the launch window of the new consoles and when that didn't happen they were pressured to put something out. Whatever it was that happened, I don't mind it at all.
On top of announcing the physical copy sales numbers Konami also said that they will be releasing a patch and title update. The update will be available on May 1st and will unlock two new missions.
What do you think? Is the length of the game an issue? Am I an idiot? Let me know in the comments.
