Persona 5 PS3 Exclusive?


What appears to be an accidental announcement from a pachinko industry publication holds that “a consumer announcement of PS3 exclusive Persona 5 is scheduled.”

The mention is slipped in with the industry announcement surrounding a Megami Tensei themed pachinko machine, so it seems unlikely to be an outright fabrication, though of course it could be genuinely mistaken, and it will almost certainly turn out to be “mistaken” and quietly excised.


Still, that the new Persona game will be initially released on the PS3 seems virtually a given considering the platform history of the Megami Tensei series, so this news is none too shocking, though certainly timely after the disappointing lack of a next generation Persona 4.

    The Persona series has never been a real cash cow here in the states given it's mediocre(at best)sales of the PS2's various versions and it's likely to flop if released only on the PS3 here.If the producers want to make money, they'd make it for the other two systems and the DS and forget the PS3.

    That my friends , is the truth, like it or not.

    i'd say it's because of the market they were able to snatch. releasing a ps2 game 2 years after the launch of the ps3, and comments like the one above. even though it comes across as a very complex story at times it has levels of relateability even on a high school level. but some people will pick their favorite character type say the shota or the loli and zero in on that to death. or the ice queen or tom boy. at that point you either milk that base or move onward, and before you move on you've got to make your money back so...

    P4 was the last great PS2 game that's for certain

    I can see the possibility for it to be in the next gen platform the PS2 has it's limits also maybe a next gen Persona game might include even more customization it can reach what the previous games can do like adding clothes, accessories maybe even gender selection or two separate games with different Protagonists one male and female until more news comes up let's keep our fingers cross

    It's not like bringing Persona to current-gen systems is going to add much to the gameplay or anything. The limit of the PS2 has never gotten in the way in P4 anyway.

    Next-gen = PS3 & 360

    They need to make another Persona game like Persona 2. If not, I'm not gonna bother playing the same shit over and over again if they keep this trend of P3 copies.
    Knowing ATLUS, I highly doubt they'll use whatever hardware the PS3 has, and just make a game that looks like it should be on PS2. They don't exactly have the budget of namco or square.

    Anon speculate that in this P5; it could be related to all the previous Persona games! Since it may happen on 2012 or later, there's a chance to meet Maya/Tatsuya's child, or Persona 4's MC! And an hidden path to rescuss P3's MC!

    P5 Needs Aigis!

    Or maybe some adult Persona user in P5 like Adachi/Takaya.

    PC superior? I was but not is
    None of you morons would use your brain or do some checking.
    In the 80s there was a huge crash in video game industry and North America was heavily struck.
    The Japanese people managed to make video game revive, but the result is that most games are released on consoles.
    Why? Because Microsoft & Apple are both American, not Japanese.

    Fuck to your PS3/XBOX superior theories. PC is just now suffering the aftermath of that huge crash. Doesn’t mean it is dead or will never heal.

    Also, why Microsoft is releasing games on xbox?
    Because the PC has been trying to reclaim its status since the crash but never really succeeded, so…

    In the past it was JAPANESE CONSOLES COMPETING each other, DC, GBA, PS, PS2,Saturn, pc never had a chance to beat them. Now you get xbox.

    Stupid westerners, one more day you support PS3, one more day you are slowing down Western world to reclaim their status in Video Game Industry.

    The Japanese have realized that their industry is now sick and needs reform bur you foreigners are still supporting! You are even more stupid !!

    Dude stfu. Who fucking cares which country made what.
    Japanese shouldn't be the only producers of video games. If you don't like an international market, then go build a time machine and go back to the great depression.
    Calling people foreigners on a website is beyond pathetic. The internet doesn't belong to any one country.

    unless the next shin megami tensei game does really well on the ps3, if they even release one on it, i doubt atlus would keep making 't games for it. they aren't exactly a big name company with money to burn. this is probably why they didn't want to risk putting persona 4 on a next gen console just yet because the ps2 was still performing well enough for a release on it to be plausible.

    meanwhile, Kotaku and siliconera report it as the next Shin Megami tensei game, not Persona 5.

    Entirely different things. One was an announcement of an announcement which revealed a new SMT game, and then there is this.

    Could it be related to this:

    Rather than a Persona 5 game, but seeing that I can't read what it says on that image, I could be mistaken, and I hope I am, I much rather have Persona 5 on current gen consoles.

    Artefact, Anim3Fr33K, you guys should work on your reading comprehension.

    Granted, the Anonymous didn't help with his odd English.

    He meant to say if it weren't possibly related to the recently announced Shin Megami Tensei game (which he linked) rather than Persona 5.

    However, he hopes that suspicion is wrong, as he'd much rather have a Persona 5 on PS3, than a Shin Megami Tensei game ona PS3 (hence "current gen consoles"--he wasn't talking about the PS2 at all).

    It says "Persona 5" so you will just have to suck it up and dump your 10-year-old console.

    Technically PS3/360 are the current gen consoles.
