Sega provided an update for shipments of Persona 5 and talked about some of the upcoming games in its development pipeline.
Imagine how many more sales it would have, especially in Japan, if it were on the Switch.
Yeah, just imagine all those wasted funds on the useless port. Amazing.
Funds wouldn't be wasted if it sells and returns a profit. That said, the sales are impressive. Wonderful game.
There's a bunch of triggered sony fanboys. Shocker.
And one Nintendo troll. Shocker
Fully earned you mean.
For those still on the fence about this game. If you like RPG genre, you should seriously consider this game. This game surprised the hell out of me. This game is unquestionably one of the best RPG games of this generation. I wasn't sure I was going to like this game because I mostly play like games like Battlefield 1, God of War, Bloodborne, and GT Sport, but boy did I end up loving this game. Simply put, it's right up there as one of the best games of this generation. If you enjoy this genre, it's a must play. For reference, some of the RPG games I greatly enjoyed were WItcher 3, Skyrim, and Final Fantasy 10, which was the last great RPG from Japan that I had played before Persona 5. This was my first Persona game.
Damn impressive for most any game, much less a jrpg
I guess that's fine You should be grateful
but..but.. 79M install base... /s
Ironic how the people that usually say this crap are the ones who don't have the console to play the game or don't even care about supporting the game at all. Like at least show your support then question why others aren't playing this amazing game as well instead of contributing to the ''issue'' you are trying to make
What’s even more surprising is the amount of people disliking my comment.
@BeardedDrachen hahaha ikr? Do people even READ these days?!
Yeah there’s a fair bit of that in gaming, lol. A lot actually. No experience required to post. Happy to say I did my part and put approx 144hrs into P5.
It is best selling Persona Game and 1/4 of series total.It sales are incredible
1. physical sales. 2. Might only be PS4.
Actually its 80m but why Call of duty didn't sell 80 million or even 40? Even though COD is most casual pathetic FPS game ever. because games not to be for everyone, even fortnite didn't hit the base player number even though its free. no logic from your statement.
He was being sarcastic.
guess some didnt see the sarcasm in the comment. Shows how niche Jrpgs really are.
those aren't PS4 only numbers.
Now port Shin Megami Tensei V to ps4 and cancel the inferior switch port
I wouldn't be opposed to SMTV being on PS4 (nor would I be apposed to Persona 5 being on Switch), but let's not cancel anything. The more games on more platforms the better for more people. That way you can play on your preferred console and I can play on mine.
Naw, atlus already stated in the past they're not fond of multiplat releases because they like to focus. Let switch get it's SMT games and ps get the persona games. That way, we don't gotta worry about the quality of the games. Just own the system for which you prefer.
The game is being built on the switch so the switch version is not a port
"Now port Shin Megami Tensei V to ps4 and cancel the inferior switch port" You do realize SMT V is being built from the ground up for the Switch, right? Lol, what an idiot.
Sold over 1.8 million of those. Good job Persona 5.
Now it just needs to come to PC
He said ''needs.''
yeah I would buy it again maybe I would get the chance to play it more because on my PC 98% of the time
Does your TV or monitor not have enough HDMI ports or something? You talk as if it switching between console and PC is hard. I've never had a problem. Change source on TV.....done.
Razzer----- no my monitor has 2 HDMI ports and one DisplayPort
Safe to say that if you factor in digital, it’s sold well over 2 million on just PS4. Pretty good numbers
Very well deserved. Persona 5 was the first title I've played in the series and loved every minute of it. Definitely going look into trying out the older games.
Im not sure what the budget was, but they must be happy! Im glad some publishers and devs still know that not every game has to have a 100 million dollar advertising campaign and appeal to as many people as possible. I love my niche targeted games.
Good.. JRPGs needed a resurgence
That's a rather impressive number for this type of title in the partially digital age. Nicely done, and well deserved, P5.
Great work for Persona 5. I loved its style.
Would really like a Switch version of this. I've beaten it 3 times on PS4, but I like the portability I had with Persona 4 golden on Vita.
Oh man I can't wait for Sentinels 13. I love the games that Vanillaware Games create. Also congrats on Persona 5, especially for it being a JRPG that others may find it niche. The game fully deserved the sales.
Can’t wait for 13 Sentinels. I love Vanillaware so much
Was my PS3's send off title, no better way to go
Persona 5 is a masterpiece and my GOTY 2017. Great sales and hope it continues to sell many more units
I’m about 60 hours in Persona 5. One of my favorite rpg’s and sound tracks. And finally! Some more info on 13 Sentinels.
Glad to be part of 2.2!
Damn that’s lower than I thought was legit expecting 5 mil.
Deserved to sell way, way more than that. It was on the bloody PS3 too! Best game I've played on my PS4 and the best RPG I've played in 20 years. Love to know what shite these 70 million PS4 lads are playing if they're not buying the actual good games.
I promise to finish this game in a few months. The game is amazing. If you can't get enough Persona 5, then it would be a good idea to start watching the new anime.
what happened to GOTY awards for this site. did i miss it? cause surely P5 was GOTY 2017 for many who played it through!
It deserves this and more, it really is a god-tier game, now I have the long wait for Persona 6, at least I have the spinoff games like P3/5 dancing and Persona Q2 to keep me company until then.
That's what happens when you release a game that appeals tothe anime crowd and include the Japanese voice...
Really going to have to give this another try. I tried it last year and got to about the 2nd or 3rd dungeon place, but after a great start i found i was getting bored a little, I mean all there was to do was read. Don't get me wrong I'm all for reading as Yakuza series is another one of my faveorite series, nd there is a lot of reading in them. But does this game get better like a lot more game instead of a visual novel that it seemed to be ?. If not then i guess that this game just is not my thing.
Persona 5 is the best Jrpg this gen well deserved.
