I was wondering why Atlus hadn't said anything so far. I bet they wanted to anounce 1m but in the end couldn't.
Weird comparison, which makes me question whether you are familiar with the overall huge MegaTen franchise or not. Persona is way more accessible and mainstream-friendly than mainline SMT games these days. As others already mentioned, SMT V is already selling better than its' predecessors. Also, another fact that you can add here is that in just 1.5 month it sold around the same numbers as Persona 4 did lifetime on a PS2 which had bigger install base. Yeah, and don't forget about a lot of people in the community getting into mainline SMT games with this one for the first time. At least, I've heard a lot about it and I myself never played mainline SMT before V. Don't really wanna sound rude, but this post smells like plain port begging from someone who doesn't have a platform to play the game on.
