PL: It's worth noting that the 3.94 Million figure refers to the Metal Gear brand as a whole, not MGS4. According to what you've posted, MGS4 has shipped "over 3 million," which like means 3-3.25 million. The other .6-.7 would come from legacy titles, as we saw a surge in MGS2/MGS3 sales last quarter.

No, MGS4 alone has sold more than 4 mil.

Err, Anonymous, you do realize you're responding to something that's 7 months old? There's been a lot of time for MGS4 numbers to creep up between then and now.
