Konami doesn’t need to sell a million copies of Metal Gear Solid 4 on day one to make a profit. They can create other revenue streams by using the Metal Gear Solid license. Snake t-shirts and limited edition figures help pay the bill. Oh wait, Konami is doing that. A set of Metal Gear Solid 20th Anniversary Kubrick figures just appeared in stores. For 5,280 yen ($47) you get these five figures:
Solid Snake (MGS)
Cyborg Ninja (MGS)
Naked Snake (MGS3)
Old Snake (MGS4)
What other products can Konami stamp Snake’s face on? Rations? Cardbord box Halloween costumes?
