Japanese holding company Index Corporation who owns developer Atlus has announced that Catherine has shipped 500,000 units worldwide for its fiscal year that ended on August 31, 2011. This is after the company announced that the game shipped 200,000 units in its first week in the United States, making it the biggest launch in Atlus history.

VGChartz has sales at a combined 440,000 units at the end of August. The PlayStation 3 version sold 331,000 and the Xbox 360 version 109,000. That would put 60,000 copies on store shelves. Catherine has sold an addition 30,000 copies since the end of August, which puts sales to date at 470,000.

I think 500k is AMAZING! And well above Atlus' expectations.

Atlus are right, closing the door on yourself by saying this will not be appreciated outside like others do, I think the results are satisfying so congratulation, if it goes to 1M worldwide, then it will be amazing

That sucks! The game opened so well, and got such great hype, and now to most people, it's a forgotten title. I know it's still a lot for a JRPG, but I was really hoping this one would break 1 million.

I wish it were selling more on a weekly basis, 30k WW in 6 weeks is only 5k weekly for both consoles combined.

How is this a JRPG? Look at the gameplay - it's a puzzle game with a story and some dating sim thrown into the mix.

I think 500k is pretty good for such a niche game.
