NES Classic was #2 this month?! Wow lol
Also for P5, seen some people understand it as being 5x P4 LTD. Obviously not the case. Doubt we have debut numbers for it on PS2?

“Persona 5 experienced the strongest debut month for any title in Persona franchise history, with packaged dollar sales five times that of the previous best-selling debut, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4,” said Piscatella.

How does this translate to unit sales, considering P5 is $60 retail and the previous PS2 games were cheaper for their release?

I expect it to be higher unit-wise as well, just that the use of "packaged dollar sales" seemed like a particular specific term to be used.

Surprise Zelda is third, well maybe not too surprise.

Still need to buy Persona 5, but probably gonna wait until the future. Gotta a feeling it might get a Golden type game

It was released on BC for XBO and put on sale IIRC.

So naturally it sold a bunch. Not to mention it's a fan favorite.

Oh shit @ Persona. That's a mighty good result. I think P4G really did help build franchise momentum, even if it was on an unpopular system.

Nier and Persona both performing so strongly this year has just been music to my ears.

Man, Japanese games are killing it this year. Such a nice change from the usual rather predictable outcomes.

It's going to be pretty interesting to see how the Switch holds up for the rest of the year as well... Looking very promising!

I guess since P4 was $40, and P5 was $60, P5 getting five times the revenue means it sold 3.33 times as many units.

Publishers seeing old titles come to life, in digital format! Blops 2 is significant, my god. Now it's time to play ball with MS and open your catalogue for BC guys (praying for OG Xbox releases, PD Orta)

Does it even say which Publishers contribute to the metrics?

PC sales according to NPD are down 57% for a measly 11 Mio $

PLAYERUNKNOWNS BATTLEGROUNDS alone has 1.8 Million sold until first of may (dont know the exact cutout date for NPD)
If we go for the normal 60% of users from the US, thats 1.08 Million copies for that timeframe.

So 32 Million $ from PUB alone.
