Konami of America has announced that it has shipped 1.8 million copies of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty to retailers since the game's release on November 13. On launch day, Konami released 1 million units of the game and, by most accounts, sold-through most of the initial shipments.

"We're thrilled with the business that Metal Gear Solid 2 has done in its first two weeks on store shelves,'' said Dick Wnuk, executive vice president of Konami of America. "Reorders were coming in from the retail level by the end of the first day of sales. We knew that there was going to be a huge demand for the new Metal Gear, but even we have been surprised by the overwhelming reaction from gamers across North America.''

At its current rate of sales, Metal Gear Solid 2 should join Final Fantasy X, which sold more than 2 million copies in Japan, as the only PlayStation 2 games to reach that sales milestone.
