MGS2 ships 1 million units
Konami announced today that it has shipped more than 1 million copies of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for the PS2. Although Konami discredited statements that MGS2 had already gotten over 2 million preorders as previously announced, the game is still selling out nationwide. Possibly the most anticipated title to hit the PS2, MGS2 is apparently hitting gamers in the right spot.
"There simply is no other game available that has generated this type of critical acclaim and overwhelming demand, which our first-day numbers show," said Dick Wnuk, executive vice president of Konami of America. "Konami has worked hard with retailers across North America to make sure that gamers would be able to get their hands on this game as soon as possible."
