It's sad to see the game being delayed, but this is ultimately a good thing.
Games should never be rushed, I will take complete game over a rushed incomplete one. Persona 5 gameplay trailer looks absolutely stunning. I will definitely wait till summer to try this beauty besides they said after Japan summer release will be immediately followed by worldwide ps4 only release( a month after Japan)
Probably SEGA wants more money so they ask ATLUS to make Persona 5 available on PS VITA. Persona 5 was originally PS3 exclusive, then be made available on PS4. ATLUS did make Persona 4 for PS VITA.
I don't think ps vita is the reason as if that's case they would have hinted at ps vita version. The game director in the video he apologized for delay categorically said the scale of P5 is enormous and they are trying to fit as many element as they can which taking little more time.
Is this what every hipster says now to excuse the apparent lack of motivation, management, and focus that Japanese developers seem to be having? We all praise Phantom Pain - but it's a perfect example. I wonder how much of it was Kojima's genius, and how much of it was a good producer telling him to stop playing around and get back to work.
How the hell you even came this path is amazing , considering western developers delays their games as much ...
The Last of Us and GTAV were delayed for the better. They are Western made games. Your logic is flawed.
The Last Of Us was not 9 years in the making. Few western games have a cycle like that. Look at Kingdom Hearts III, Final Fantasy XV, and Persona 5 since the original release of Persona 4. I don't have to argue the point, it argues for itself.
I Want it ;(
Well, as long as you were right :p
Let him have his moment. If something doesn't happen often it is worth savouring.
Atlus is notorious for not making their deadline release date so this is not a surprise to many tbh.
The real reason the game got delay because they don't want 2 compete in this stack holiday season 2 many heavy hitters lol. Niche title can't compete with Fallout & Stars Wars& Call of Duty and many great AAA from early this year people going 2 buy at holidays season.
You do realise that this particular niche title has a very strong fan base, and provably will care more about it then Fallout or star war or whatever
Those games wouldnt make a dent to persona in japan , and it's unlikely a western fan would skip it for COD and the rest ... And it's not as if we even know it won't go against another big game from 2016 . Happened often in the past when some game would flee the fall games , only to get destroyed by the likes of Bioshock march/april
Yeahy, give this man a cookie
I knew this also knowing they really wasn't promoting the game or showing off trailers or gameplay footage but saying it was coming at the end of the year.If the date would have been true we would have seen plenty of promotion including gameplay footage & trailers.
far too many games get shown way too early. delays are not the problem, trying to rush them to generate hype is.
The delay is well justified considering HOW much footage they showed and how genuine the director was. Let them make it the game it deserves to be by whenever they choose to release it. Cant say the same for FFXV though as they continue to not show anything more than Duscae.
"I Was Right" What a humble guy.
