Notes:
- “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.
- "Finally, you may have noticed that 2012’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II outsold Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. That’s because you can now play the Xbox 360 version on the Xbox One, and that juiced the game’s sales."

  2. For Honor

- “Nintendo owned the top 2 platforms in unit sales for the month, with the Nintendo Switch at No. 1, followed by NES Classic,” said Piscatella.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe did 550K including digital.

So Persona 5 is under that.

Still though, shocked and happy that it sold well.

Hardware

The Nintendo Switch outsold PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for the second month in a row. Nintendo still seems like it is selling every Switch it makes instantaneously, with most people reporting that they still haven’t seen one on store shelves.

“Hardware spending jumped 37 percent compared to April 2016, to $195 million,” said Piscatella. “The Nintendo Switch was the catalyst for this growth with sales exceeding 280,000 units. The industry drove the highest April hardware dollar sales since April 2011.”

But Nintendo actually had the No. 2 best-selling system in April as well.

“Nintendo owned the top 2 platforms in unit sales for the month, with the Nintendo Switch at No. 1, followed by NES Classic,” said Piscatella.

Oh man oh God

Persona 5 really must be pulling in good numbers. Impressive, but well deserved.

And yeah, GTA V just continues to print money. At this rate I honestly expect to be seeing it still charting this time next year...

I think it's up to the publishers, like if they agree to share their numbers.

Yay for Persona. Two of the top two selling games of the year are my 1A and 1B for Goty right now. The other two are made by Ubisoft.
