Speaking to videogaming247 this morning, Konami’s described UK pre-orders for Metal Gear Solid 4 as “huge”.

The company declined to give specific figures, however.

A rep for the firm in Britain also confirmed that Zavvi will be opening on Oxford Street at midnight for the game’s Thursday launch, and that other, smaller retailer will also be burning the candle at both ends to see in the summer’s biggest action game.

There are no details on how the game’s expected to perform in the rest of Europe as yet, but betting against GTA IV as next week’s UK number one may not be the stupidest thing you ever do.
