If everything I hear about P5 is true then it definitely deserves good sales.

I'm more surprised P1 is actually the best selling in the series to date. No one ever talks about that game.

260K units sold on PS4 is good sign for the PERSONA franchise.
Hopefully this is not a bad sign going for bigger IPs in japan releasing on PS4.
I've been keeping an eye on P5 stuff, and if sales go on half as good as this over the next two weeks, it should become the best-selling mainline entry in the series' history. As to the other, I don't think so.
