Persona 4 Golden shines with 700,000 shipped worldwide

Atlus announced it's shipped 700,000 copies of Persona 4: Golden worldwide, meaning plenty of people have stayed up late to tune in into the excellent Vita remake. To celebrate those numbers, Atlus is discounting the JRPG on Japan's PlayStation Store (sorry, everyone else) to ¥4,980 between December 11 and January 8.

The news comes as several new Persona games bear down on us, including a Persona 4 rhythm game for Vita and expanded arcade fighter The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold. Not forgetting cutesy Etrian Odyssey-like Persona Q for 3DS, and certainly not the big kahuna: Persona 5 on PS3.
