"major" Metal Gear Solid release for Konami? Revenue drops around 44 billion YEN, shows fiscal report.
190.1 billion YEN was posted for the nine months ending December 31st, which is down from 234 billion YEN from the same period 2008.
Don't you love all these fiscal quarters and postings? "Due to the absence of major titles, such as last year’s Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots, however, the overall sales fell this quarter as compared to the same period the previous year,” said Konami.
They enjoyed a record year when Metal Gear Solid 4 debuted, but now the honeymoon is over and they've got nothing that impacts gamers the same way. Take-Two only had Grand Theft Auto but then along came BioShock to steal some limelight.
Konami needs their own 'BioShock' to lessen the drop off between Metal Gears.
