Curious to know how well Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker did in its first week? Spoiler: under half a mill.

To be exact, the AAA title sold 425,000 units at launch last week, with Dragon Quest spin-off, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, outselling it: it sold 624,000 units on DS.

See, no matter what, it now proves Japan goes crazy for Dragon Quest any day of the week, including when a new MGS is out.
