MGS: Peace Walker sells under 500k in first week in Japan


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.

Get the full software charts from Japan over at Andriasang. Hardware charts release tomorrow.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker releases in June in the west for PSP. Hit this up as to why you should be buying it.
