Game Developer Magazine's Top 20 Publishers For 2008

October 1, 2008 Article Start Previous Page 11 of 21 Next

11. Konami

Year formed: 1973

Headquarters: Tokyo

Studios: Blue Label Interactive (Los Angeles); Hudson Soft (Tokyo, Sapporo, San Francisco); Konami Computer Entertainment (Tokyo); Konami Software Shanghai; Kojima Productions

This year Konami climbed four slots in the ranking in part through doubled revenues that quarterly reports attributed to sales of the latest Pro Evolution Soccer and the long-awaited Metal Gear Solid 4.

Music titles were as important an asset as ever for this publisher, and DDR Hottest Party and Karaoke Revolution Presents: American Idol all sold well during the year.

Review scores improved year-over-year too, and Konami expanded its release slate slightly.

But while many of our readers had brief but enthusiastic praise for MGS4, some expressed a desire to see Konami return to "better multiplatform support and diversity of titles."
