Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain made a lot of money

According to a new report, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain made a lot of money,  $179 million on its first day in fact.

The news comes via a new report by Adobe Analysts, who say that many people seem to under estimate the power of gaming at making money for its makers.

"The gaming industry is a lot bigger than most marketers realise," said Tamara Gaffney, principal analyst and director at Adobe in the companies own report.

"These games get more social buzz on opening day than most movies do, and the revenue for one of the top games this year outdid the highest-grossing movie start [Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 with $91 million] by nearly double."

What's more staggering is that the game even had a cheaper budget than a movie such as Age of Ultron, which had a $250 million budget, with the game already having made twice more than the movie. 

Those studios are in the wrong business.
