    I've never played a Persona game before, but I've heard good things. If I buy this do you think I'll be lost since I haven't played the first three, or is it welcome to newcomers?

    It's always fun to play a PS2 game once in a while. The last PS2 game I played was Metal Gear Solid 3 in order to prepare for MGS4.

    I don't really understand why this game is being released on PS2 only. It is rather upsetting that Sony isn't having the software developers pushed to make games for PS3 that would do really well on it. Especially since most people won't have the option to play it on their PS3s.

    I know a lot of people who are really in to the Shin Megami Tensei games. Hope it is worth still having a PS2 in the house.

    "a lot" of people really aren't that many..It's a niche series. It's coming to PS2 because the engine for it was already in place. The PS2 has a large user base and it costs Atlus less money to develop their little niche title that probably wouldn't sell well enough on the PS3 to be anywhere near profitable.

    The reason for the XB360 beating out PS3 sales by large is due to the fact that Microsoft stopped support for the original X-Box and gives you the continuing option for backwards compatibility for most games (usually the ones worth playing or weren't released for both regular XB and XB360).

    Sony is still producing slim PS2 models to sell new in stores. Three kinds, actually. Silver, black, and the white version that comes with Singstar and two microphones. Most sold item last Christmas season in GameStops nationwide? PS2s, new and used. PS3s don't get the dedicated support they should, because there is still too much support for the PS2, because as of right now, it is SCEA's life line-- or so they think.

    Gamer's may not like "being forced to upgrade" or "being forced to buy a new system", or at least the more low income people might not. But if you want to move new systems, the only real reasonable option is to cut off support for the old one when the new one is on it's feet and start making the hit titles for the new system instead of the old ones still.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 could have definitely been released on PS3, like Disgea 3 was. I wish they would kill off the PS2 already, and stop making games (especially sports titles) for it. It isn't worth the 79.99 - 129.99 you'd be spending on the system to get it now, but people still do it anyway. Persona 4 could have very much been a next gen game.

    See-- people buy consoles for the games that are on it. With very few (almost no) solid games in promise for PS3... it doesn't make sense why anyone should buy one. If Persona 4 would have been released on PS3, or announced for it a long time ago, it would have moved systems. The same way MGS4 did.

    However, Sony is still stuck in the last 10 years of PS2 success and is squeezing and wringing the life out of their previous system in a futile attempt to keep the company afloat. Did they forget they won the new media war? Blu-Ray beat HD DVDs, so the long term success is insured-- if they don't kill it off themselves.

    Sony probably looks at it more like the PS1 sold really well, and so did the PS2 while the PS1 was still being supported.

    The PS3 is slowly but surely catching up to the 360. Most of this year the PS3 has been outselling the 360. With July being the first month in a while that the 360 outsold the PS3. And that wasn't by much. The PS2 still sells well and they make a profit from every PS2 they sell. So why stop? The 360's success is probably due more to it's head start than MS just cutting off production of the PS2.

    Just about any game could have been released on PS3 like Disgaea 3 was. But it's not always good business sense to do so. Atlus isn't that big of a company. They probably see from an installed userbase of the PS2 with 100 million + versus the PS3 with around 15 million. After Persona 3 & FES everything was in place to effeciently and cheaply make P4. Since Atlus is in this to make money then why not do it that way?

    And since we're dealing with a 3rd party here there's probably only so much Sony can do. Sony may still be producing and selling PS2's but it's pretty much up to the 3rd parties to support it. Since Sony isn't making that many games for it anymore.

    Maybe look at it also from a collectors standpoint. JRPG's that get released late into a consoles life often end up being rare and worth quite a bit too. Just look at games such as Valkyrie Profile for the PS1, Panzer Dragoon Saga for Saturn.

    And BTW. Madden '09 just came out for the original Xbox. So the PS2 isn't the only last gen console still getting games for it.

    Sports games will be the last thing to go from the PS2's library. Since they're so easy to just do a roster update and slap on a new cover and you're done.



    And theres no way that Persona 4 would ever move consoles the way MGS4 did. It's not THAT popular.


    I doubt they've forgotten that Blu-Ray beat out HD-DVD. But Sony isn't the sole company behind BR and they share the profits of it with a bunch of other companies. But with digital downloading around the corner theres no telling how long Blu-Ray will actually be around or how popular it could get. And since you kind of need a decent size HDTV to really reap the benefits of BR it may end up being something thats more for videophiles.
