Smarter solution than localizing and releasing a PSP game in 2013. Hope they don't try charging more than $10 though

Better come to Europe so I can play it on my Vita - if it ever becomes Vita compatible, that is.

I don't think there has been a PSone game that costed over $9.99 (although JP has $15 ones, the Final Fantasy titles).

This is some good news. I'll probably end up getting it just to see how the game is, even though I've already seen the story of the game. Of course I'm sure it'll be better to experience the story for myself.

Complete with its old, not-very-good localization? Also, from the little of it I've played, if the VAs for Katsuya and Ulala aren't the same as Brock and Misty from the English Pokemon anime, then I'm the King of England.

At least you can buy that on the US store and play it on your EU account, though. :P

I believe this game is harder than the PSP version (going by Innocent Sin, it has an easy mode).

Eternal Punishment PSP had proper balancing, and Hard mode was harder than the PS1 version. Also the new content is very worthwhile and cool, unlike ISP. Tons of new bosses, most of them Eldrich/Lovecraftian in nature, man those Tatsuya Scenarios were so cool.

I bought this on the original release, but it was way too obtuse for me to get through. Demon negotiation seemed to be completely random, for instance.

It was my first SMT game, maybe I'll give it another shot this time.

Maybe not. Isn't Persona 3 FES a PS2 classic? This might just be a way of gauging whether or not an "updated" version is financially viable for the US.

They could have just as easily given us nothing and continued to say nothing.

At least now I'll be able to play the game without paying $100 for the original release.

He's in the UK though.. so the chances of it appearing on their PSN are slim to nil.

Changes always seemed kind of minimal anyways. Localization of PSP one would have been nice, and I imagine fairly easy with translation already done, but probably not gonna sell at all on the PSP at this point..

The new content was actually worthwhile in EPP compared to ISP, also things carried over with your save from ISP to ESP

We live in a world where Aksys announced the localization of a dating sim with Keiji Inafune's niece, but Atlus is afraid to localize a remake in their star franchise on the same platform.

We live in a very strange world.

Better than nothing, and PSV can stand for Persona Vita at last.

They released a version with Raidou taking his place a long time ago in JP. That's not the issue.

Though Raidou being fucking lame is an issue.

I got a feeling Nocturne won't hit PSN for a while. If I'm not mistaken, the Raidou version never got localized and they'd probably have to renegotiate with Capcom over Dante's appearance.

Would this be a good starting off point or should I just jump to Persona 3?

p1 and 2 and the modern p3 and 4 are completely different. It is also a story sequel to Persona 2 Innocent Sin, so I would not start here.

This would be a pretty bad starting point, haha.

Play P3:FES, P3P, P4 or P4G.
