It’s official, Persona 5 has become the fastest selling entry in the series since the franchises debut 20 years ago.
In it’s opening week (via 4gamer), the game has sold 337k copies across both platforms, with the PS4 version selling 264k copies and the PS3 version selling 73k copies.
It’s worth noting that this number only counts the first three days of sales, seeing as these numbers were from the week of September 12th to September 18th, with the game only releasing on August 15th.
To put it in perspective, the highest selling Persona game in Japan is the first entry in the series, originally released in 1996 for the PS1. The game sold 391k copies in its entire lifetime, meaning that Persona 5 is well on its way to becoming the highest selling game in the franchise.
Persona 5 is slated to release in North America and Europe on February 14th, 2017 for both the PS4 and PS3.
