Persona 5 yipee!!!!

The only games I like anymore are Persona, SMT games, Naughty Dog's games and MGO.

So glad Persona 5 isn't effected by the bankruptcy!

I have been waiting a long looooooong time for this.

I'm hoping for a reveal at TGS 2013! It's going to be a big year for that show, I think.
Abriael  +   945d ago
I would love that, doubt they're gonna announce anything at Gamescom, as Atlus won't be there.
bothebo  +   945d ago

SSSSSSSSSTEEEAAAAKK!

I loved P3. I played it earlier this year via psn for the first time.

Loved it so much that P4G because a system for me.

I really think a game like P4 is perfect for Vita.

It's the only game I have purchased so far, though I've played Golden Abyss and I have Gravity Rush to get to later thanks to my subscription to ps+.

I'm about forty-five hours into P4G. I have been really dragging it out. ^_^
fsfsxii  +   945d ago
Same here, i'm loving P3P now and P4G almost bought me the Vita, but at the same time i want the 3DS
Abriael  +   945d ago
Yeah I bought my vita at launch, but I know quite a few people that got it almost exclusively for P4G. It's hands down the best portable RPG this generation.
Heisenburger  +   945d ago
*edit* ^^because should be became^^
Also it should read 'system SELLER'

Geeze Louise.
I. Suck.

P3 is the best RPG I have ever played.

Didn't got the chance to play P4 yet.
belac09  +   945d ago
p4g was MY favorite vita game so far. AMAZING.
VileAndVicious  +   945d ago
I keep seeing all these "p4g is the best rpg of this gen comments" just curious but what was different about this version versus the original? I played it some years back.

Lol I never see much love for P3 (my personal all time favorite) p4 was still fearsome in its own right but...I don't know maybe it was just me but it felt so lighthearted To me especially compared to any of the others.
Snookies12  +   944d ago
That's the thing about P4. It knows how to balance lighthearted and darker tones. The further you get into the game, the darker it gets. That's what makes it special. That's what gives it a sense of progression rather than a constant dark atmosphere. Don't get me wrong, I loved P3, but it felt a little stuffy because of how weighted down with darker tones it was. P4 strikes an amazing balance with it.
VileAndVicious  +   944d ago
@Snookies

I kind of get what your saying about P3 being really dark. Especially the race against the calendar part. But I dont know I never felt any that dark/persona atmosphere while playing P4. It was definitely there in Catherine (another awesome game btw) Lol I mean I beat P4 a while back ( in 08?maybe?) but even once everything was revealed it felt kind of....out of place for a persona game maybe?

lol things like the whole going into the television, teddy and the glasses (maybe its just me lol).

But I did feel like overall most of the characters where a bit more interesting than most in P3. But the ending from P3 just had this hold on me lol. I was pissed once I finally understood what had happened, but it was really good and I still think back on it today.

Not saying P4 was bad of course it was good. I just always found it strange that some as of late seem to really talk it up. I figured its because it just released on the vita not too long ago.

AHHHHHH!!!
Muffins1223  +   945d ago
Theirs a good chance this game will have a vita version
Abriael  +   945d ago
Considering that Golden did very well, I'm quite sure there is.
Muffins1223  +   945d ago
Theirs even a chance sony made a deal with them to become exclusive to vita...it needs games,gamescom is right around the corner too.

@Muffins: Atlus won't be at Gamescom afaik. If they're gonna announce something like that TGS is more probable.
TheDorKnight138  +   945d ago
Just got into the Perseona series thanks to the vita, but now im a life time fan and hanging on any word of a sequel. MORE PERSONA!

Lol, yesterday i posted my prediction about Persona 5 in here:
http://n4g.com/news/1305473...

And now looks like my prediction is true. Can't wait to see what Atlus cooking for P5 ^^
Abriael  +   945d ago
Let's hope they're not just registering it preemptively to avoid domain squatting...

O.M.G.
raiden-49  +   945d ago
I hope for a home console release like the ps2. It was the last home console persona was on (persona 4 arena) and that was ps3 will persona 5 be on ps4 or ps3 or not at all ( like the vita or a Nintendo console). Well I am new to the series and can't wait for what they have.

I have a bold prediction. I may be wrong on this one, probably will be, but I have this feeling that Persona 5 will be for the Vita...AND 3DS. Reasoning is quite simple. Why do you think Atlus made Persona 3 and 4 on the PS2? Because it was cheaper to make. Atlus is not a big company so making games on cheaper platforms helps their bottom line. This is where the handhelds come in. Cheaper to develop, not to mention there's already a fanbase for Persona on the Vita thanks to Golden. As for the 3DS, well this should be self explanatory. It's Atlus's big moneymaker, the 3DS is king in Japan. It has money written all over it. Not to mention there's that Persona game for the 3DS Atlus announced back in 2011. This seems like the best scenario as everyone wins...except for the people hoping to see Persona 5 on the PS3 or PS4.
Snookies12  +   944d ago
I hope not... Don't get me wrong, I really liked my 3DS and all, but games that are multi-platform with Vita/3DS never look as good as they could be on the Vita. I'd rather it be exclusive to one or the other and use the most out of the system. Though rationally speaking, I see them doing this for Vita alone. Mainly because every Persona game has been on PSP/Vita with their portable versions. I doubt they'd just switch up at this point.
MegaLagann  +   944d ago
True, and as I noted I could be wrong, but never say never. People were saying the same thing about Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest and Shin Megami Tensei and look what happened. Companies go where the money is. But either way, I don't care what system is for, PS3, Vita, 3DS or even the Amiga. It'll be Persona, it'll be amazing.
Snookies12  +   944d ago
Definitely agree. It'll be amazing no matter what. I have complete faith in them to bring yet another masterpiece of an RPG. :]
VileAndVicious  +   944d ago
That would be interesting....

But I think that while the vita is doing pretty well in Japan, it could be doing a bit better everywhere else. So I think they might try and play it safe and just release it on both the Ps3 and vita.

But if it is exclusive for vita I will definitely buy one.
D_RoyJenkins  +   945d ago
can't wait to play this on my PlayStation platform of choice.
TheDivine  +   945d ago
Idk if I'd rather have a console release or handheld release. Knowing atlus it will most likely be ps3 if its a console game or vita if its handheld although they are throwing massive support towards the 3ds so I could see it switching over possibly. Having P5 and SMT4 on one handheld would be crazy awesome.

FINALLY!

Can't wait for them to release teaser trailers, websites, promotional images and all that. Hype just got high!
Loki86  +   943d ago
So pumped for this about 30 hours in on P4G and it is one of the best RPGs ever.
