Persona 5 Hits 1.8 Million Units Shipped Worldwide

Taking everyone’s hearts worldwide.

Posted By | On 26th, Jul. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


Persona 5 is one of the best games of the year, and also one of the best games ever made. And it is also seeing sales that befit a game of its quality, finally breaking the Persona series out of the niche it has occupied ever since its inception 20 years ago.

Shortly after the game was released, Atlus and Sega shared that the game had shipped 1.5 million units worldwide; today, they have an update, and they are confirming that Persona 5 has shipped 1.8 million units worldwide. This makes Persona 5 the highest selling game in the series (Persona 4 was previously the record holder with 1.6 million units sold, though it managed those sales across Persona 4 and Persona 4 Golden, and over many years).

Persona 5 is available now on PS3 and PS4- and if you haven’t already played the game, now would be a great time for you to change that, because it is absolutely fantastic. It will truly take your heart.

    • LifeOnMars

      God, I have to put up with you all though the school holidays.

    • kma99

      No that time is reserve for my kids. I dont harbor playstation orphans.

    • Turniplord

      Well it outsold games such as: Dead rising 3, Rise of the Tomb raider, Forza Horizon 2, Ryse, sunset overdrive, rare replay, Quantum Break, dead rising 4, zoo tycoon, halo wars 2 (200k copies which is pathetic), recore, state of decay, fantasia and more xbox one ‘console exclusives’ – So I would say it sold pretty well…..

    • Fweds

      Can you just confirm your sources for Xbox digital sales ?

      Can you even confirm your sources for Xbox games hardcopy sales ? Being that there are no official sales figures tracked outside the USA and the UK.

    • Turniplord

      You will instantly say they are wrong, but vgchartz.

      Before you grab your pitchforks though, they have pretty much the correct numbers for the major games based on info that’s come out recently about them and even figures close to this persona news. So even if you let generous and add 10-20% for digital and margin of error, it still sold more than the games above.

      The majority of Xbox ‘console exclusives’ don’t even hit 1m sales, some don’t even hit 500k, that’s the same as 1-2m on the PS4.

      I just don’t see why people have to instantly jump at sales figures and try and make out it’s bad – I was just putting it into perspective that, in this case, it’s actually sold more than a lot of the Xbox games that people may think sold more for being more mainstream.

    • Fweds

      Lol Vgchartz, I knew it would be a “let’s just take a guess” site that people use when they feel they need to defend or backup non factual posts.

      Digital sales on Xbox are big, I don’t know anybody who buys retail anymore especially as game sharing is so easy, it also lets you share EA Access etc.

      It simply makes no sense to buy retail over digital sharing on Xbox unless you have no one to share with.

    • Turniplord

      There are loads of people out there who still buy physical. You can pick games up much cheaper in most countries second hand or new at retail over digital.

      Also, like I said, matching up some reports on sales with what they had almost matches up in terms of numbers – meaning what they are reporting is a very close approximation regarding physical and digital.

      All I was getting at in my post was that persona out sold all of those ‘console exclusives’ that are, for the most part, considered as mainstream and popular games. So almost 2m copies is pretty good – especially where there has been stock shortages as well.

    • Marc OKelly

      The game has only been released outside of Japan for 4 months.

    • Mr Xrat

      “Digital” is the go-to excuse for Xbone games flopping.

      Funny how when NPD started including digital sales for Microsoft-published games they were still MIA from the top 20.

    • Luke Skywalker

      Hmm as far as I can remember npd haven’t in included digital sales for Microsoft games.
      All Microsoft games have an asterisk on npd’s charts meaning no digital sales included in their figures. And even without digital the games always make it to the charts.
      I’d rather you use facts than crap you’ve pulled out azzs.

    • Mr Xrat

      NPD’s been including digital sales for MS and Sony since May or so.

    • Fweds
    • Fweds

      Funny how they haven’t actually started including any data as of July 11 2017.

      Not sure why you mention MS and not Sony as well when you talk nonsense, they are using a sample of some THIRD PARTY publishers data. Multi format titles.

      To get the sales figures, NPD is partnering with publishers. The company is getting digital data from the following companies:

      Activision Blizzard
      Capcom
      Deep Silver
      Electronic Arts
      Square Enix
      Take-Two Interactive
      Ubisoft
      Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment

      Best you only give yourself 10 fake Upvotes as I suspect the others who now have them would rather their post get Upvotes on its merit.

  • Luke Skywalker

    for some reason I thought this game sold way more to way how media outlets and ps4 fanboys were hyping it up.

    • Mr Xrat

      That’s just your strawman bitterness because Xbone games routinely flop.

    • Patchman2076

      Mr xrat, why do you feel the need to comment on xbox all the time? Every time I see a comment you make it’s always about xbox. I really think you need to see a shrink because your obsession with Microsoft is absolutely ruining your life. Seek some help guy.

      They are not even Sold numbers, only shipped.

  • Mr Xrat

    lol all this Xgimp bitterness.

    Watch this sell more than PUBG on Xbone.

    • Fweds

      Why are you mentioning PUPG and calling people weird names on a news item about a PS3 and PS4 game and it’s shipped numbers ?

    • Mr Xrat

      Stay mad your games flop, bowl cut boy.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Disappointing sales. Pachter was right…these Japanese games just aren’t mainstream.

    • Marc OKelly

      How are these sales disappointing? Maybe if it was multiplatform or had an enormous budget like Destiny. Plus you don’t need Pachter to tell you these games aren’t mainstream. Most people write them off without even trying them. If a game sells enough to make a profit it is good regardless of what that number is.

    • Fweds

      These are Shipped numbers not sold, if the figure were anywhere near sold numbers they would of said, so very likely actual sales are far far lower.

    • Marc OKelly

      No one is saying they arent lower. But regardless that doesn’t mean the sales are dissapointing. These games games hardly ever hit past these numbers, nor do they have the same budget or expectations. People need to stop applying AAA sale expectations to games that aren’t, this isn’t Final Fantasy

    • Mr Xrat

      The game’s been out since April and it’s still close to launch RRP.

      I don’t think I’ll ever see a retail game crash in price harder than Halo 5 did. Half off in two weeks. Ouch.

    • Fweds

      Half off in two weeks !, really, you will write any old trash to divert attention away from fact.
      How are the Halo 5 sales figures ? multi millions were sold in the first 3 months what was the ratio compared to the PS4’s main exclusive ?

    • Mr Xrat

      Halo 5 did in three months what Halo 3 took three days. The series is over the hill, Xgimp. Get over it.

    • Fweds

      Halo 3 sales did what ANY PS4 games have NOT acheived so with the amount of PS4s sold EVERY title on PS4 that has more than 1 in the series is over the hill using your fanboy logic.

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL Halo 3 was ten years ago. Move on, and thanks for making my point about your declining first party.

  • greatnessIsaLIE

    I played the game but I knew that no one really cares about this game. It was fun but I wouldn’t play it a second time. I’m more of a mulitplayer gamer
