MGS2 ships 1.8 million units
Konami of America has announced today that Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty has shipped over 1.8 million copies to retailers since the game was released on November 13, 2001. With the game selling through the initial 1 million-unit mark on launch day, MGS2 has proven to be an instant success with America.
"We're thrilled with the business that Metal Gear Solid 2 has done in its first two weeks on store shelves,'' said Dick Wnuk, executive vice president of Konami of America. "Reorders were coming in from the retail level by the end of the first day of sales. We knew that there was going to be a huge demand for the new Metal Gear, but even we have been surprised by the overwhelming reaction from gamers across North America.''
