Atlus has just announced that Shin Megami Tensei: Persona will be available on the PlayStation Network the same day as the retail release.
Just letting everyone know this is a PSP game and not a PSN game, which is disappointing.
There was a rumor some time ago about allowing to play the PSP titles in the PS3 after the release of the PSP go!, I hope they allow this, because the idea of the digital distribution of the Sony titles is the same of the PSone titles, allow the user to play then in registered consoles but with the benefit of being legal users, play in your PSP titles in the PS3, just like remote play allows the users to play PS3 titles in the PSP. let's see what the Sony executives conclude
That's why they are thinking about it a lot, but it "could" increase the sales of the original data instead pirate it, if someone buy the title for PS3 and it's playable in PSP the consumer can be motivated in acquire a PSP go to carry that title with them. Just like the PSP/PSone titles, many people bought FFVII to play it in the PS3 but they also can play it on the PSP. but that's still in debate
This is not meant to be playable on PS3. They are just adding this game for PsP Go owners.
I wonder if it'll be the same price.
Likely, since Atlus's extras for pre-orders/initial copies never have jacked up the price. Nice to see them having both out at the same time (since Atlus games are notorious for being hard to find unless they reprint them) and letting those who are interested get the title a few months after, and giving a bonus to those who go for the retail copy.
Nice. I hope for a demo because I have never played a Persona game.
Great cause i dont like collecting umds at all . Day one purchase . Finally someone understand that delaying digital copies so gamestop could rip off people , only delay sales , or can even kill them .
I plan on buying a psp go and even though i'm not too fond of carrying umds, I do admire the box casings. They're great to display on a shelf in my room and they become wonderful collectibles. What i would propose for brick and mortar stores to do is to have a separate section of psp games that retains the same box and cover art, but inside would be a voucher code instead of a umd. By doing this, they won't lose sales from psp go owners to psn. They could even continue to pack other incentives with the vouchers, like what persona is doing here with soundtracks included with the physical copy, but for psp go owners they can also buy a voucher copy and recieve the same bonus content. In doing so, alot of digital consumers will still opt to buy at their local game store.
Wait, will it be a PSP game downloadable, or a game that PS3-only owners can DL and play?
It's not the psx game , it's the psp remake
I might get the download instead
I would assume we can start expecting this for ALL PSP games within the next month or two. PSP Go owners won't be pleased if they have to wait for games. Sony will want to start early on gettig PSP titles on PSN to make sure everything is seamless at launch.
They're both 39.99, which pisses me off there's no reason for the PSN version to be that high, so get the version with goodies shame on Atlus and Sony for this one but, they got keep the retailers happy so i say screw you Gamestop.............
I hope you can start pre-ordering games on PSN too, kinda like Steam. Gran Turismo has preorder bonuses, but it's supposed to be released on PSN too, so people that want to buy it from there are being left out of the preorder rewards. Can't wait for PSP Go!
This is a great news for me, i love persona series.
I'm getting the UMD version for the free 2 disc soundtrack.
music makes everything better
