Number includes download sales, says Atlus.

Sales for Persona 4 Golden have surpassed 300,000 units, Atlus has announced.

The numbers include download sales, as well.

The Japanese announcement does not say whether the sales are restricted to Japan, or include the game’s international release, as well. Game Data Museum lists Japanese retail sales as 233,000, so we’ll let you make your own assumptions.

    Good for Atlus. The game is great!

    Persona 4
    3 hundred thousand unit

    4×3 – (4+3) = 5

      4×3 formula can also be applied to the amount of alphanumeric characters in your name. You’re making Persona 5, aren’t you?

  • Coloso90909

    In Japan, I guess.

      I asked the Persona account on Twitter. Hopefully they’ll respond.

        Probably it is Japan only because trackers (Media Create and Famitsu) have numbers around 250,000 not counting digital sales.

        Besides, it is rumored that a NPD report leak had P4G at 90k only in US retail, so it would be weird if all those trackers were so far off.

      • Tenshiken

        Atlus announced this time last year that sales had exceeded 260,000.

        And now a year later with western releases it only sold 40,000? The numbers don’t add up.

  • bldudas

    This game deserves every one of those sales. It’s so good!

    Only 300,000? I figured it would have been a lot more than that by now. It was (or maybe still is?) the best selling Vita title.

    • Alkhan

      Uncharted is the best selling Vita title. followed by AC Liberation, Persona 4 Golden, Call Of Duty BOD, and Little Big Planet. (not in that order)

      • TheExile285

        Add Touikden and replace LBP with Soul Sacrifice

        • Alkhan

          Sales wise, LBP outsold Soul Sacrifice. I’m listing the best selling Vita games in that post.

      • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

        Ah. I was speaking more towards Japan. I should have specified, sorry.

      • Guest

        Call Of Dirty: Bad Odor Douche-bags…….is part of the best selling Vita titles………………

    • AdachiTohru

      300 000 only in Japan obviously ( if we look at vg chart, it reached 270 000 sales in Japan not including download sales and 500k in the world )

  • Kobracon

    I expected way higher. P4 deserves so much more…

    • http://wholesomegamer.com/ G.

      Yeah. According to other sales charts though, it sold more worldwide (over 500,000 worldwide retail). Still, the bulk of the sales came from Japan.

      It’s too bad more people don’t have Vitas. It has a great library of games.

      • AdachiTohru

        Next months, i bet a lot of people will buy it. ( new model/colors, new price, God eater 2 bundle, FF X/X-2 bundle + christmas magic = epic vita sales)

    Since it was announced on the Japanese website(Atlus HQ), wouldn’t we assumed that the sales were from Japan only? That and Game Data Museum is also a Japanese website….

  • HighBrowDrifter

    Dear Puss-God……..make it rain Persona 5 all up on my VITA!

    Sincerely,
    Puss

  • Zackasaur

    300k sounds like Japan-only.

    I would’ve liked to see even higher sales, but it still makes me very happy to see my favorite game doing so well <3

  • SOLOmio

    just give me Persona 5 news!

  • Budgiecat

    500,000? That’s pathetic. JoJo did that in a week
