In their recent fiscal report for 2008-2009, Konami released some surprising numbers regarding the Playstation 3.

The Playstation 3 represented 28% of Konami’s total software sales last year. This makes Sony’s behemoth the top seller for Konami last fiscal year. Of course, the release of Metal Gear Solid 4 may have done something with the numbers. In fact, the jump from the previous fiscal year is astounishing. For the 2007-2008 fiscal year, the Playstation 3 only accounted for 8% of Konami’s total sales.

Going more in-depth, here are the platform-by-platform performance figures:

  • Playstation 3 – 28%
  • Nintendo Wii – 17%
  • Playstation 2 – 17%
  • Nintendo DS – 16%
  • PSP – 12%
  • Xbox 360 – 7%
  • PC – 2%
