Katsura Hashino said that P Studio seriously considered handheld devices as the platform for Persona 5, but they decided on the PS3 when they realized that's where most of their fans would want to experience the game.
We all know this is only half true. Yes, the fanbase is on PS3 but this is also the best way for them to sell the game again on Vita.

Well, they'll most likely remake the game as they always do, but I feel that a future PS4 port is just as likely as a Vita port at this point. Maybe that's more wishful thinking than anything else, though.

If P5 does so well as many are here saying......why wouldn't P5 FES be on PS3 as well?

Vita might get a P5P.
I didn't say otherwise. I expect an FES version just as I expect a Portable one. I don't think they will bother with PS4 but it's still way too early to tell.

An interesting question is whether they plan to repeat with P6 what they did with P4.

What do you mean, reusing the engine and the assets? Of course but I'm not to sure if it'll come out on PS3.

i would guess that mario kart 8 has the ability to reach 1m if by later this year they bundle the game with the wii u to help sell the system when smash bros. comes out. and then next year to help sell zelda or whatever they have smash bros. bundled with the system instead.

yo-kai watch 2 will probably be the last great hype for the 3ds. maybe monster hunter 4g and pokemon gen 3r may do something, but i kind of doubt it when the audience is already there, and while the yo-kai watch audience is there since we know the first game is such a big deal, i think the special edition system should net some big sales for that first week, at least.

LINE is now the most popular app in Japan with more than 21m monthly active users, even more popular than Google Play and Google Maps. LINE is a messaging app like WhatsApp, QQ, Wechat etc, but it's also a very popular game portal. If you look at the top apps chart, you will see many LINE games charting there.

Of course they're gonna reuse assets. It's Atlus. Where is the question. PS3?PS4?PSV? I feel like Atlus has many options without any of them being clearly the better one. I guess we will see.

Wii U just desperately needs a pricecut, even if it's hard for Nintendo to stomach. The games are there, or will be by December, and until FFXV it seems it won't have any console competition, but it needs to be much cheaper to get to a relevant install base. That way maybe Japanese devs will put some games on the system, which might also help a little bit in the West.

Even better if it coincides with a MK8 bundle.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Yes its still too expensive and Nintendo knows that - they are probably trying to survive till 2015 when the next pride drop can happen and they maybe launch a cheaper redesign with a smaller gamepad. They will have to start some kind of relaunch for 2015 with their 2015 titles planned.

It'll be a travesty if Nintendo don't get all the WiiU titles available, one way or another, on the next piece of hardware.
My theory is that this is why most of the AAA-titles don't or hardly use the GamePad. Imagine a launch lineup with, say, Mario Kart 8 Plus, locked 60fps/1080p (assuming it's more powerful; it might not be if they go the merged console/handheld route) and/or with a couple of extra cups thrown in.

I would guess a September pricecut would make most sense from an install base and software sales perspective, but I doubt it will happen. Maybe holiday sales + Smash Bros will be enough to at least beat the 2013 numbers.

The list of third-party titles not named Dragon Quest, Monster Hunter (or Final Fantasy) that had sold over 2 million units is extremely small. Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters IV which is the most recent title to meet these requirements was released over 13 years ago.

[NFC] Pro Baseball Family Stadium (Namco) {1986.12.10} - 2.050.000
[SFC] Street Fighter II (Capcom) {1992.06.10} - 2.880.000
[SFC] Street Fighter II Turbo (Capcom) {1993.07.10} - 2.100.000
[SFC] Chrono Trigger (Square) {1995.03.11} - 2.030.000
[PS1] Resident Evil 2 + Resident Evil 2: Dual Shock Edition (Capcom) {1998.01.29} - 2.456.650
[NGB] Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters IV (Konami) {2000.12.07} - 2.210.162
Thanks. I was thinking RE was the last franchise and never knew Yu-Gi-Oh! was that big back in the days. If we lower the bar to 1.5 million, I would think FFXIII was the last title to do it but I don't think there is much else, right?

One would think that Nintendo couldn't do worse than the GameCube, but nooo... they had to come up with WiiU.
It will truly be crazy if WiiU has an LTD below 4 million. It being below 20 million WW is pretty much given at this moment in time which is incredibly sad and makes me think what Nintendo are going to do about their ever decreasing relevancy in the home console market.

I think it might 4 million+ in JP.

Another "good" sales for Wii U,it is always nice to see Wii U's sales higher than the PS.

Mario Kart 8 got some good sales ,and I hope that keep on selling like that for a long time. Nice début for Persona Q, this one I was not sure
if it will take the first spot. And Yo-Kai wacht kept on God Mode.

PersonaQ continues to seem a stronger direction for the Etrian Odyssey series. I imagine they will either notably revisit the production values on EO or keep on making PQ.
Oh god, I really, really, really, really hope not. ;.; I like Persona and all but I like EO far more.

Granted EO getting a nice bump in production values would not be a problem whatsoever. Dunno if I'd want them to keep going the Untold route though - another part of the charm is making your dudes and going on an adventure with them.

(It's me, I'm The Target Audience for the original EO.)

You think Final Fantasy XIII would be the last third party title not named Dragon Quest, Monster Hunter (or Final Fantasy)?

;)

(I don't think lowering the bar to 1.5m would open up a whole lot else which is recent, really)

So far Atlus has managed to do it twice.

Persona + Blazblue resulted in a game which far exceeded the sales of Blazblue or Guilty Gear.

Persona + Etrian has now resulted in a game which will exceed the sales of EO significantly.

It'll be interesting to see if they can do it again with P4U2 and P4D. P4D is particularly interesting because while it probably doesn't have a chance to exceed the sales of Miku at its prime on PSP, I think there's a good chance for it to exceed the sales of recent Miku games which is pretty much stuck at 150-200k now. If leveraging the Persona brand allows it to surpass the 200k which Miku sold on the Vita, that'll be certainly impressive.
