Konami released the highly-anticipated exclusive game, MGS4 on the PS3, in the month of June.

To build on the game’s success, Sony also released a PS3 sales bundle just for the game, with a console that was colored to go along with the package.

The game proved to be a huge success, selling 450,000 units in the first seven days in Japan, as well as 1 million in Europe in its first 7 days.

The game sold 750,000 units in June alone in the U.S.

This resulted in the game helping double the sales of the PS3.

Sony sold 405,500 consoles in June, more than double the sales of the Xbox 360.
