Konami has seen a rise in sales of 4.2 per cent this fiscal year. Profits are down by more than 40 per cent, however, standing at JPY 10,874 million (GBP 2.1 billion).
The Metal Gear Solid series is still doing well, with 4.75 million copies now shifted around the globe. There are 1.3 million Metal Gear Online users worldwide.
The Pro Evolution Soccer series is also popular - nearly 8.5 million games were sold last year alone. Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party and Karaoke Revolution rounded out the line-up of Konami's big sellers.
UPDATE: This story originally stated Metal Gear Solid 4 had sold 4.75 million copies, when that figure in fact refers to the entire MGS series. As you can see, this has now been fixed. We apologise for the error.
