Atlus has boasted that the sales of Persona 4 Golden's PC port have exceeded half a million copies. This impressive result was achieved in less than a month after the release, as the game debuted on Steam on June 13, this year. To celebrate the success, Shigenori Soejima, the game's chara designer, created a special artwork, which you can see above.
It is worth mentioning that the game still attracts crowds of gamers. Yesterday, at the hottest moment of the day, almost 12,000 people were playing the game on Steam. This is a very good result for a single player title that launched almost a month ago.
The best day for the game was June 14, the first Sunday after the launch, when 29,984 people were playing Persona 4 at the same time. This number is very impressive, because it is the highest ever score achieved by a single-player jRPG title. The previous leader was Final Fantasy XV with activity record of 29 279 users.
The success of the PC version is all the more impressive because it is already quite an old game. Yesterday, the creators celebrated the twelfth anniversary of its release on PlayStation 2, while the expanded Golden version debuted on PlayStation Vita in 2012. As you can see, the demand for the PC release was still very high.
Excellent sales results of the game on PC give hope for ports of other installments of the series. However, it is difficult to assess whether it will be Persona 3 or Persona 5. Of course it would be best if Atlus ported both games to PC.
