    ok, so i find this article to go either way, because honestly, this game is really the only reason im buying this game, this game looks stellar, cant wait to play as snake and taking him through his next mission.

    i think it's going to boost up sales, definitely, but i still don't think this game will make ps3 pass the halfway point to wii sales....

    ya , your right, but if this game can boost up sales by lets say, a couple million, then this could set a guideline for game developers on how to make a great selling game, i think the ps3 has great things to come in the near future

    i'd say the better factor would be if this game got a lot of sales itself, than that could pursuade developers to work on better games

    thing is, if the game is the only one that sells great, and not the console, developers will be more discouraged to make high budget games, and may end up making games for wii and 360 insted.

    I personally think that MGS4 will definitely boost the sales of the PS3. This is one of the most anticipated games for the PS3, so I have no doubt that it will increase the sales of the console.

    I think it will, I also think the Final Fantasy's will boost Japanese Ps3 sales up a lot

    Final Fantasy 7 put the PS1 on the map. It's on the top 3 all time selling franchises. Evil freaking Pokemon. Anyways MGS4 will probably boost PS3 sales as long as it remains exclusive. Sony can't afford to have this game jump ship. They should pay Konami any amount of money the game doesn't make on launch just so they don't whine about not selling 6 million copies like Halo 3 in the first month.

    1. Mario (Nintendo): 193 million
    2. Pokemon (Nintendo): 155 million
    3. Final Fantasy (Square Enix): 68 million

    i will take a guess and say the "hardcore" gamers that are anticipating this game already have a PS3 so it may "boost" rather push the sales up but its not going to be dramatic. those screen shots BTW are pretty nice i think my PC is a lil above that but still looks freaking awesome.

    It will boost sales for sure. Japan will go nuts with this one and it is a big franchise in the US, i'm sure EMEA will love it too. This may be the game that has some 360 players on board.

    I must say - the PS3 is starting to get some really good exclusives - Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted, Haze, UTIII (for a few months), RFOM, MGS4...

    And the new bowling game for $9.99 is cool - the entire family came finally join in - rather then watch me play COD4 all night!
