    It’s weird, because apart from MGS4 I can’t think of a Konami game I’ve bought or wanted to buy in the past 3 years.

    Would have been alot higher had MGS4 been on Xbox 360 aswell..

    Kojima would be swimming in cash.

    Atleast it shows a game need marketing to sell it. I saw like 10 MGS4 ads… And no Killzone 2 adverts.
