The PS4 has already sold over a million units in the USA alone within 24hrs and still has millions in the USA waiting for new shipments. This game probably won't release until late 2014 for the USA/Euro which by then the sales of the PS4 will probably be over 10mil. Most PS3 owners will have moved on by late 2014 anyways. Also this is a niche series that won't sell millions of copies anyways, it doesn't need a huge install base. People who dished out the money for next-gen shouldn't have to miss out on what's probably going to be a 2014 title because the company wants to release it on a 8yr old console.
And then, there's Japan, their home country. I can see it being for Vita, because portables are a bit more popular there right now.

Please for the love of god be Cross-gen. No way in hell I'm paying 200$ for a last-gen console just to play one game even if it's part of one of my favorite game series. It can come out for PS3 but I hope they give this a PS4 release as-well considering this isn't coming out until 2014. The idea of releasing a new game that late into the console's life and not have a release for it's hot successful successor just sounds stupid to me.
The PS4 isn't even out in Japan for several more months, meanwhile Persona 4 came out for PS2 2 years after the PS3 had been out. I think it's pretty unlikely the game will be on next gen consoles.

What I would like to see:

1. Persona 3 FES/Persona 4 Golden HD collection, released on every platform possible

2. Persona 5 on Current gen consoles and last gen consoles

3. Any console release for any Persona thing

Welp I can't go to sleep anyways, I might as well stay up an extra 30mins to see the announcement. Hopefully it's something good. I haven't been following anything so far so my hype is at 0.

If it's a good announcement then prepare for my hype to go from 0 - 100 very fast.

So you're saying P5 will be a PS4 launch title in Japan

Hell no, have you seen what we act like? Persona fans are rabid fans, and you can bet that word of mouth would spread.
~ a bunch of people with anime avatars :p

I could see it being crossgen tbh. It wont be a graphical powerhouse kind of game.

As long as it isnt on the 3DS, I dont care.

People actually thinking Persona 4 will come out for PS4.... If Atlus are putting anything on consoles it's going to be with the well established systems people already own, maybe even several titles in the future. Or handhelds of course. PS4 development would a complete waste of money for them.

I don't think that would be enough to make it a big name title in the west.

There is no way Atlus has that kind of turnaround and if it was coming at launch it probably would've been at the Japanese PS4 event.
