Metal Gear Solid V: TPP Expected To Boost PS4 Sales In Japan, Has 80% Sell-through In First Two Days

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released on September 2 in Japan. The game has been in development for quite a while so there is a lot of hype surrounding it. Despite its cross-generation roots, the game is still going to sell a good amount of copies on the PS4, and is expected to give a boost to the PS4 hardware sales in Japan.

NeoGAF user Hisa-Kun has shared some pictures from the gaming stores in Japan displaying Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Check them out below.

[PS3] Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain # <ADV> (Konami) (¥9.072) – 60% (two days tracked)

This sell-through shows that the game is doing better on PS4 compared to PS3, which is surprising giving the gulf in the install base. It is also expected to give a boost to PS4 hardware in Japan for its launch week.
