*-Excludes bundles. Including bundled games, the total sales of MGS4 were almost 1 million.

Metal Gear Solid 4 pushed the PS3 into unfamiliar territory and made the gap between the PS3 and Xbox 360 something Microsoft’s not going to be able to spin quite as easily as usual. Nintendo Wii continues to lead and has now officially claimed the units sold lead in the US over Microsoft. The Xbox 360 “price cut” (aka inventory clearance of the smaller hard drive) isn’t going to help matters any, although it should be interesting to see what happens when Sony’s most expensive PS3 model finally hits $399 in September.
