MGS IV will shift more PS3s than GTA IV, says analyst

Gamesradar is reporting that EEDAR's Jesse Divnich reckons MGS IV will drive PS3 hardware sales harder than GTA IV.

"Sony's PlayStation 3 can claim a relative small victory as its hardware unit sales were up 150% over last year; additionally, they managed to outpace their closest rival, Microsoft's Xbox 360," said Divnich.

"This will likely continue in June as we expect Metal Gear Solid 4 [to] act as a bigger catalyst in terms of driving PS3 hardware sales than did Grand Theft Auto IV," he added.

For the record, PS3 marginally outsold 360 in last month's NPD results.

Future's looking bright for Sony it seems.
