"But the game is definitely under a lot of pressure, because the way things are turning out, this could be the first "must have" PlayStation 3 title on store shelves. Or, if not the first, then the second or the third. So, in that sense, there's a lot relying on it. People at Sony know that, and we've got literally 200 guys working on this title, day and night, making sure that it's perfect."

MGS4 should sell more than enough to turn a profit. It's a strong franchise and this is supposed to be the final chapter. Also, I would imagine that Sony is subsidizing costs to an extent. Sony has too much riding on MGS4 for them to risk anything going wrong with it. If nothing else, I'm sure Sony will cover most of the promotional costs for the game.
