PC Now Viable Platform For Konami


Konami have released their latest financial results revealing the Japanese publishers titles have been thriving on the PC platform.

According to Konami, sales have increased by 8% on PC which places it ahead of the Xbox One, but still lagging behind Sony's PlayStation 4 current generation console. Despite being behind the PlayStation 4 in sales, Konami can now say the PC is certainly a viable platform for their videogame content.

Konami states that the PC now accounts for 10% of total game units sold, a huge increase from last years 2%. These figures now put the PC head to head with Microsoft's Xbox 360, a now ageing last generation console and ahead of all handheld systems.

Furthermore, Konami's latest PC release of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes is said to have been selling very well on the PC although no actual sales figures have been disclosed by Konami at the time of writing.

Hopefully the PC could potentially see a release of Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain at the same launch time of the console variations, as MGS: Ground Zeroes has proved to be a hit amongst the PC gaming community.

What are your thoughts on Konami's latest financial results, did you enjoy the short but sweet Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes? Or was it short and, well you know. Please feel free to discuss on the OC3D Forums.
