Konami Stock Plummets Due to MGS4 Delay

konami-stock.jpg

As if disappointed groans from fans around the world weren’t enough, Konami’s stock took a huge plunge, following news that Metal Gear Solid 4 has been delayed even further into 2008. The US release date, as of now, is set for Q2 2008.

According to Bloomberg, Konami stock fell more than it has in nearly four years. More precisely, the 6.8% drop by the 11 AM Tokyo Stock Exchange break was the largest drop for the company since December 8, 2003. The image seen above is for the five day span ending on November 1, 2007.

bwahaha… yes keep dropping. This stock is undervalued. Don’t forget Konani has a stranglehold on the casino business! :twisted:

WTF guyz…c’mon..this comment is rubbish and we all know it. The reason MGS4 is delayed is because improvements are needed to be made to the game and in the end, we all know that Hideo Kojima is a perfectionist. Does it really matter if we have to wait a couple of months longer if the game is amazing.No.

The stock has only dropped two points and really,lets be honest, that is going to rise back up again anyway by next week, so everyone stop panicking and get ready to enjoy wat i think, will be the best game on PS3.

If 2 points is the same as 6.8% then I feel REALLY sorry for Konami.

Konami has been really iffy with the latest MGS, and to be honest the whole thing really has a lot of negative energy attached to it.
