You people are mistaken; it shipped 7M on ALL platforms, not just PS2.

Think people think, it shipped 7 million. This is at 5.6 million, MGS Substance on heres at 0.8 million. So 6.4 million total.

StreaK (on 20 March 2010)
Yeah, this game without a doubt topped 7 million. I read numerous articles stating that fact. I think it's the best-selling MGS game because of that awesome demo that came out back in the day. Too bad many gamers ended up becoming disappointed because this game is incredible.

7M....holy hell 7M UPDATE please
SaviorX (on 12 July 2009)
I heard this shipped 7m copies.

It should be at like 6.98m sold here or something. Those 7m copies were shipped ages ago.

Fantastic game, really improved over the first (which was already amazing) and an excellent story. 9.5/10

Despite MGS2 being a great game ... I think it's the worse in the series! and nowhere near as good as the original in Story and Characters aspects ... however I gotta give it credit for moving the technology into a whole new level! It's graphics and gameplay mechanism were insanely amazing!!! something my eyes couldn't believe back then.

I think the game is a bit boring in comparison to the first one. I donīt know why, but I didnīt get this epic feeling I got with MGS.

Would be higher in my books if there was more Snake instead of Raiden.

I've had this game like 5 times, and I have 3 copies left :D and 2 of them are the substance version.

mgs2 actually sold 1k in japan last week 0_o
el_rika (on 23 July 2008)
There are more than 7 mil actually sold of this game. Several sources confirmed it some time ago.
Maybe VGchartz will bring the numbers up to date someday :)
vitoxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (on 13 July 2008)
the best mgs game..well after mgs4 =p
MontanaHatchet (on 01 July 2008)
Amazing, this game is actually still selling thanks to MGS4.
leo-j (on 27 June 2008)
This game sold 7 million copies, GT said it and so did KONAMI, there are no copes of this on shelves either.
Griffin (on 22 June 2008)
During the MGS retrospectives on GT they say this game sold 7mil copies.
SchumiF1 (on 13 June 2008)
Best game ever! I just wish the actual sales numbers were up-to-date!
HanzoTheRazor (on 11 May 2008)
9/10 Great game. 4's going to *ROCK*!
Snake612 (on 10 May 2008)
meatl gear solid was very good. Metal Gear Solid 4 is going to be one of the best games of 2008. I'm hoping it brings in huge sales.
saw (on 08 March 2008)
The story line was...well...weird. It's a game you need to play, if you are into the MGS story line, but the game play its self isn't as good as some of the previous one; this isn't to say that it's "un-playable" or even bad.. it's just not quiet as good as I had expected it to be. I'll probably play the next one immediately before the next one comes out. :P

ITT people who think shallow political commentary and a dilettantish story is "deep"
Parokki (on 03 February 2008)
Possibility 1: "Every other article" are quoting the same, incorrect source.
Possibility 2: Those figures include sales of the remake.
Possibility 3: This site has a minor mistake. Please tell ioi if you have a good source, and I'm sure he'll fix it.

"this game has sold at least 7 million according to every other article"

I was about to say the same thing. This game was actually more successful than the first, which sold 6.6 million copies world wide. And that's according to more established sites like GameSpot and the like.

I'm wondering if the owner of this site just makes the numbers up when he feels like it.

No wonder no one trusts the numbers in this place.

segajon (on 13 January 2008)
I own this game but I'm not going to put it on my profile because I haven't been able to find it for 2 years now.

Hope I can find it, I'm currently in the middle of my 3rd run through of the game.

10/10 AWESOME GAME!!!

I wouldn't say "BRAIN POWER", but "open mind". After some point in the game you are like "ok I get it... but wtf"
mx_remix91742 (on 17 December 2007)
epic story, my favorite game for years to come... 10/10
================================================
WARNING!!**this game ACTUALLY requires BRAIN POWER to comprehend the complexity of the storyline and requires knowledge of the first MGS to understand the abstract/complex nature of this masterpiece

**THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE EVERYDAY SHOOTER**
Lord_ash (on 26 November 2007)
For me it wasn't as good as the 1st but still very damn good.
MontanaHatchet (on 01 November 2007)
nathantay trolls random PS and PS2 games. Just ignore him.
erikguy (on 24 September 2007)
deathbeast sucks.

"Better than the first MGS but still not that good"
says someone who likes the Saturn....
nathantay (on 19 September 2007)
Better than the first MGS but still not that good. 6/10
OldManOnCampus (on 28 July 2007)
This is my favorite game of all time and not the best (as in I wouldn't recommend it to everyone), even with the poorly told story and all its flaws, for the ending speech impacted my real life. Not directly though, only through means of discovering its themes in other works of not so niche'd media. I hope that made sense.
DoubleV56 (on 15 July 2007)
deathbeast, sorry Metal Gear Solid isn't a overrated game like Halo.
deathbeast (on 09 July 2007)
this game sucks. ridiculously overwrought story. no wonder leoj likes it.
leo-j (on 29 June 2007)
I love this game man
