So glad it's doing well. I wish this game was out already in the west. It would have had so much momentum if it had came out close to the Japan launch date

Didn't expect the PS4 numbers to be so strong. Pretty remarkable it sold better than P3 and P4 given how much smaller the adoption rate is in comparison to the PS2.

Finally Japan is abandoning the PS3. Salute you old soldier.

It'll probably pass LTD sales of Persona 4 Golden next week. Crazy impressive! Congrats Atlus!

Edit: Just the PS4 version

This five-month wait is gonna be painful, especially in terms of dodging spoilers.

That said, congrats to everyone involved with Persona 5.

Eight years since the last "proper" Persona game and the excitement for the series has grown and managed to carry itself without the need for many video game-related spinoffs. Nice.

Awesome! So glad to hear this is doing well thus far. Can't wait to see how it does here. It would be great for this series to get more attention.

I bet it will break the first week record too. The abstinence has lasted too long. Also is a worldwide release. So...
For the entire Final Fantasy series? Absolutely not. I guess if we're counting every region of release instead of one, it seems less absurd, but I still think that wouldn't be a certainty.

Even if you count only PS4 it did beat all previous launch.

Amazing.

lol not even close.

There is no way a FF game today will sell over 2.5 million first week in Japan. It will be luck if break FFXIII debut at 1.5 million (considered low for the franchise).

Hell yes!! Awesome sales!! Curious to see next weeks drop off (hopefully next week's sales will be surprisingly good). Also, curious to see the sales for it in NA and EU when it releases. This is on track for a million. I love it!!

Great job. Only played a minuscule amount of the game but can't praise it enough so far.

It's still happening really slowly though. MGSV's PS3 first week sales were 28%, and now a year later P5's PS3 first week sales are 21%. For a console that's mostly dead and has basically no exclusive releases, it's really hanging on!
