Konami Digital Entertainment has revealed a few details regarding the recently-released multiplatform video game, “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.” According to a report from Dual Shockers on April 25, the publisher stated one million copies of the software products have been shipped to retailers worldwide. However, the company did not reveal the exact number that was sold to customers.

An analyst recently stated that “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” was able to sell more than 600,000 units so far in Japan and North America. However, the report doesn’t include the sales from the other regions. Moreover, the video game also came out at the same time on the Playstation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace. So the sales could end up being higher.

Konami Digital Entertainment originally included an exclusive mission for both the Playstation and Xbox versions of “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.” However, the publisher has announced that the bonus missions will now be available for all iterations of the title. As a result, PS3 and PS4 gamers can play “Jamais-Vu,” which features Raiden (based on his appearance from the previous “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” and “Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots” video games) as a playable character, starting on May 1st. On the same day, Xbox 360 and Xbox One users can access “Déjà Vu.”

“Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” came out for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles on March 18. The software product is designed as a prequel to “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” which angered some fans who thought that the main campaign could have lasted longer than just around two hours. Despite the criticisms, “Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes” went on perform exceptionally well on the marketplace.
