We knew it crossed 1 million worldwide but didn't know the full Asia/Japan breakdown until now. Ahead of its release in Taiwan the NieR Twitter account just announced that in Japan and Asia (Square Enix separate them even though Japan is part of Asia as they should be separated when tallying sales) NieR: Automata PS4 shipments + digital sales have topped 500,000. The game just passed 300k sales at retail in Japan last week.

with 250k sales on steam, and a top 10 charting in the US. Could be approaching 1.5million worldwide

That's awesome, hopefully it sells well enough that another Square / Platinum collaboration has to happen.

I wonder how much the PS4 demo had to do with how successful the game turned out to be. I recall word of mouth being extremely positive.

This is comparable to what Persona 5 did albeit in a shorter time span, right? It truly is a Renaissance we are seeing! Great going here, hope it translate to other games as well!

CEO of SE has already said that he wants to work with PG again on another title.

So I think it's more than likely we'll see that happen. Either another Nier game or something else.

Seems so.

It's interesting that it's the MGR team striking gold again.

Likely a localization thing. It seems they're adding another language.

Same here. It on the 'list' like a lot of other games. Likely would have played it later this year, but well later. Then the demo came out :P

Apparently we can buy the game using a physical disk bought from UK if you are impatient. Hopefully we get a region discount, or it will be part of my wait for a >= 50% discount pile.

Best selling YT game and possibly best selling Platinum game (not sure how MGR did in the long run). Hope we get more partnerships between them, if YT continues to make games that is.

For me it was:

1. Watch reveal trailer at E3
2. See that Yoko Taro is partnering with PG
3. Immediate pre-order and media blackout until release

Asia's quickly becoming a big contender for console games like Japan/UK. I know it's several countries but it wasn't long ago that it was a non-factor.

So western sales should be pretty comparable between Steam and PS4.
