While everything else is looking more and more like the Great Depression, one would never guess from looking at the numbers at Konami.  Thanks to Metal Gear Solid 4, they posted an impressive net profit of $122 million for the first half of its fiscal year.  That is up more than 90% year-over-year!

Konami's overall revenue was a bit more modest, posting total sales of $1.5 billion, up just a little over 10% from last year.  It is still a remarkable feat.

Metal Gear Solid 4 has now sold over 4 million copies since its release worldwide in June 2008.

Also interesting is that the game sold fewer copies in Japan while it was flying off the shelves in North America last year.
