Exactly rob! I guarantee this game is over 6 million like the first 2. Heck, MGS2 sold like over 7 million!

MGS 3 not at 6 million is like a dirty stain in the rug when grouped with the other numbered games(not including V...yet).

There is no way this sold under 6 million copies. Just...no...WAY!!! Too good of a game and the best one in the series hands down!

I remember getting this around the time GT4 was out, and i was the only person who bought MGS3 that day according to the clerk, so GT4 coudve affected the EU sales.

MGS3 came out in Europe in March 2005....that's almost 5 months after GTA:SA. The US version's sales were effected by GTA: SA a lot.

The voice actress who plays The Boss also plays Dianne Simmons from Family Guy. I don't what that has to do with anything, but I just wanted to point that out.

That is all. *vanishes in a puff of smoke*

Man this was a pretty killer Metal Gear, I thought Big Boss/Naked Snake was a prick before playing this game, after seeing his origins you can't help but like him and than feel bad for him.
