The total number of Metal Gear Solid 4 discs shipped now stands at 3 million, according to IGN.

That'll include a million sold in Europe, plus half a million shifted in Japan. There's no official figure for the US yet but it's more than 12, we'd wager.

The 3 million figure was revealed at a Sony investor briefing in Tokyo yesterday. Apparently Kaz Hirai told attendees Metal Gear Solid 4 has helped shift more PS3 consoles. Wonder if Oli's review also helped?
