Definitely not. 1.SMT is not as big as Persona. 2.Persona got tons of 9-10/reviews and that helped a lot. 3.Persona got released on the Vita which really lack games to play. 4.The Dark atmosphere and the religious themes in SMT4 will probably scare off some people.

I've seen this happen.
I doubt this will have much effect on it. Either way, there is no way this is gonna out sell P4 unless they port it to other systems. Don't get me wrong, I HATED Persona 3, but it got a lot of hype which really contributed to the success of P4. It's also very rare for a niche game (yes it is) like this to sell well compared to ANY console game.
