MGS: Peace Walker Contributes To Konami Profit Jump

Written by on    

This one is sure to add fuel to the fire on the current region debate going on in our previous Co-op podcast article right now. Although Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker didn’t receive an outstanding amount of sales in the US within its first month, worldwide sales of the game have contributed to a significant profit jump for Konami. Together with Pro Evolution Soccer, Peace Walker gave Konami a $4 million jump over last year’s profit margin for Q1. For Q1 2010 Konami have successfully earned 1.27 billion yen which translates to $14.3 million. That’s a 244 percent jump from last year’s 367 million yen ($4.26 million), which is pretty damned good for Konami. So although Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker didn’t exactly wow in the NPD’s, Konami are still laughing to the bank. I am sure they are giving Kojima a huge pat on the back as we speak.
