GamePro: Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 Review

GamePro writes: "An enormous fan of the past installments in the Persona franchise, I'll be the first to admit that I was a tad skeptical when I heard that Persona 4 was dropping as soon as the end of 2008. Wrapping up my fourth run-through of Persona 3: FES, I was starting to feel like there wasn't anything else the series could throw at me that I hadn't seen before - and certainly not in such a short time span With the announcement that P4 would also be releasing on the Playstation 2, I couldn't help but worry; would this just be Persona 3 with a fresh coat of paint and a new cast of cookie-cutter characters? I'm happy to report that while Persona 4 does hold quite a few similarities to its predecessor, it proves itself as a brand new experience from the ground up with unprecedented levels of innovation, character, and outright charisma. Persona 4 may very well prove to be the shot in the arm that the RPG genre is in such dire need of."

The 20GB and 60GB PS3's are compatible with nearly all PS2 games, it should play on your 60GB PS3 with no problems.

It's times like this that I wish my PlayStation 3 was backward compatible. Damn you, Sony. >:(

Should have jumped on the $99 Lego Batman PS2 bundle at amazon on Black Friday. Though I have a 60GB PS3, I still like the original (without upscaling and smoothing) visuals on a PS2 through component cables.
