Highest launch of an action/hns game in Japan since DMC 1. B-b-but the DmC fanboys told me the genre is dying and that's why it bombed.

Great job Platinum. Well deserved.

This game is kicking my ass, I don't think I can play anymore and I don't want to turn down the difficulty either because it will bring great dishonor to my family.

Its sales made the best Platinum opening



This is even more awesome when you note that Shinkawa based Raiden's armor on the medieval knight.

Here the Famitsu (Enterbrain) launch numbers.

Quote:
[PS3] Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance # <ADV> (Konami) {2013.02.21} (6.980) - 335.791 / NEW
- Nr. 1 on chart
- Highest launch for this kind of action game since DMC 1 (352,668).

Kojima interview where he said it's selling well WW.

Quote:
He said that Rising is selling well worldwide so far, giving him further license to do as he pleases. The man is near-untouchable at the moment, but he remains humble, piling immense praise on Platinum Games’ end-product. Should a Rising sequel happen, Kojima wants Platinum back for round two.
For the actual US numbers you will have to wait until next month when the NPD numbers will be leaked.

If you're somehow playing Very Hard or Revengeance for the first time, there is no dishonor

That's a pretty huge achievement 0_0

(Oh btw, their next excuse would be Metal Gear is a bigger brand name than DMC )

Quite honestly I think if it wasn't for DmC, Rising might not have as many supporters as it has right now.

So to me DmC really was their big break... For Platinum

MGR? PS3 only. There is no 360 version in Japan. It was cancelled during development.

I think so too. DmC was a big disappointment for many. I mean BP and Vorgil DLC was released and it's like no one cares. I am happy. Platinum finally gets the sales they deserve and we get a bloody awesome action game.

The only sad thing is that barely anyone from the media commends Platinum for basically saving Konamis ass and developing this game in 2 years.

Read on gamefaqs forum a debate whether MGR's dev time should include the dev time it was still designated MGS:R while under KojiPro. So what do you guys think? Should the time in KojiPro be counted to give MGR as having 4 years dev time or more? Or do we only count post production studio switch which means Platinum only made this in about a year and a half?

Point- if I didn't stumble over it I wouldn't even have heard how VD turned out.... hell I don't think anybody is talking about BP...

I can see why they did it but I think it still would have sold around 60k. It's too bad because maybe it could have been a 400k launch.

Regardless I can see the LTD sales around 450k-500k for MGR if it follows the normal drop off rate and has some legs. For a single platform, action spin-off that's really big.

I totally forgot that it was released the same day as Rising. I only remembered because I lurk in the DmC thread.

Yeah it's something between 1 or 2 years. We know from the interview that Inaba said he aproached Kojima in the begining of 2011. The first trailer was from December 2011. So they switched the engine, changed the gameplay, the bosses, the sick OST and all the other stuff in less then 2 years. It's crazy. Where are all the articles praising them?

Most of the time we're only talking about Platinum Games when it comes to development, especially gameplay mechanics, so I'll only count the time where they are involved.

Besides, MGS:R was technically dropped and scrapped and P* had to redo everything on their engine.

Let's not act like MGR fans wouldn't do the same if the situation was reversed (see DmC vs MGR reviews). We'd hear something along the lines of "platinum games never sell, but it's still a good game regardless etc."

Point is that such things are meaningless. You don't need silly numbers or journalism to tell me that MGR is a great action game despite its flaws.

Who knows? Maybe in some parallel dimension where Kojima partnered with NT and Clover studio were never screwed over by Capcom.

Then none of this should concern you one bit now shouldn't it?
