Confirmed: Sonymites love anything Metal Gear.


Hardware sales decreased by one percent this week, but only due to the decreased sales of the 3DS. 508,863 consoles were sold this week. Week-on-week sales are up for the PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360, DS and Vita, and down for the PSP and 3DS. Year-on-year sales are down 45 percent. No platforms are up year-on-year.

Three games debuted in the top 30 this week. Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengeance for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is the biggest debut this week. The PlayStation 3 version debuted at the top of the charts with sales of 628,198. The Xbox 360 version debuted at number four with sales of 166,556.

Apparently there are 51,939 disappointed Xbox owners at the moment.

Apparently I am a niche gamer, I don't own a single game in the top 10. Not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing.

Being an Xbox owner is suffering enough, Aliens is just extra cruelty.

Does that mean I can't be a Sonymite since I have never played the Metal Gear series?

Yes. Turn in your badge, firearm and uniform. Proceed to the unaffiliated gamer line. The good news is the line is very short, bad news is you will be lonely.

Haha, yep. Looks like Xbots certainly don't hate it either.

Tomb Raider, Gears, God of War, Bioshock are all getting purchased this month day 1, I'm excited about all these. Crysis 3 and Metal Gear are $29.99 and under games for me but I do want to play them
