What do you think the setting for P5 will be? We've got: 
P3 - 25 Hours 
P4 - TV 
Catherine - Dreams 
 
P5 could have you jumping into radios, I guess.

You know what? This makes perfect sense. Especially if Persona 5 is on an HD console.

Yes, and Giant Bomb will be the evil mastermind behind it all.

I can see Jeff as the final boss, actually.

INTO SPACE! Any way, the only thing that connects me and this franchise is the Endurance Run, and yet I can't wait to hear something about this game, not sure if it's officially announced? But if is, it's probably my most expected game.

It has been for a long while now.

Dreams/Unconscious states of mind are still a possibility, has Catherine been offically linked to Persona yet besides the appearance of the main character in Persona 3 Portable? The games could run parallel, or Persona 5 could take place before/after the events of Catherine.
 
Or, they could be totally unrelated but share the dreaming theme.

That's more like the matrix, though.

@WitchHunter_Z: As of yet, there's no link between Catherine and the Persona series other than Vincent appearing in P3P and a Teddie doll that can be seen in one of the Famitsu scans of Catherine.

  @Wikipedia:

Digital Devil Saga is set in the Junkyard, a vast, post-apocalyptic wasteland in which it is constantly raining. All residents of the Junkyard adhere to elements of Hinduism, and seem to be reincarnated  when they die, aware of their past lives. Six main tribes, the Embryon, Vanguards, Maribel, Solids, Brutes, and Wolves, fight to destroy each other and earn passage into Nirvana. 

So no, DDS doesn't have anything to do with the Internet.
 
[EDIT] Actually, never mind.  Reading more about it, mutha3 is right in saying that it's like the Matrix.

Ouch. Be aware that game is tough as nails. I'd recommend keeping that one as last, unless you thought Persona was easy.

Persona 4 was fairly easy (on Normal) as well as Persona 3 FES (although a bit tougher on the same difficulty).  I have no problems with games like those as I always try to push forward, so I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

Brother, I was like you once, so happy and full of vigour...but that was before I tried Nocturne.

Well then, you'll be fine.....I think.
 
When you get around to playing it, and if you  get stuck on a tough boss, feel free to send a PM my way.

Na Jeff and Vinny would appear as the final bosses who cackle about bitches before transforming into some kind of gaming amalgamation along with Brad and Ryan. In a Power Rangers type way. Vinny would have loads of cameras coming out of him. Jeff would have loads of speakers and beatbox people to death. Brad would be part Terran with slimy Zerg stuff around him. And Ryan stands in the background manipulating events with....strings or something.

My idea would be a garbage dump where the main characters go to. When they get there they can enter different items that can transport them to different worlds like say a TV to P4 TV land, a radio to radio land, a old computer to the INTERNET land, and so on.

I say the next Persona game has something to do with music.The final boss is the leader sing from ICP.

The only logical place for high schoolers if it's not the internet, would be if it takes place in Manga.
#36 Posted by Smallerz (128 posts) -

What about if the game revolves around people's shadows (as in normal, everyday shadows, rather than evil doppelganger-like shadows)? There could be a mirror world where everybody's shadow resides, and only the new team of characters know about it. The shadows could have features like we do, but we only ever see them as a silhouette because it's a parallel world (just like we'd be a silhouette to them). Maybe the team have to switch places with their shadows to enter the alternate world, and they must accomplish a goal in a certain period of time to stop their shadows from being given control and replacing them in their world. The party would be able to flip back and forth between the two worlds whenever they want, just so the player can interact with social links etc.

 I dunno. Atlus usually thinks up something completely crazy that we'll probably never guess in a million years. That was my best shot, but it probably sounds terrible lol!

#37 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19824 posts) -
@Smallerz: The whole point of the Shadows in Persona 3/4 is to create a relation between Jungian psychology.  Making the Shadows everyday shadows takes out the whole point.
#38 Posted by IBurningStar (2205 posts) -

There will be a tower at some point and we will have to climb it. Most the SMT games have a tower in them somewhere. Perhaps it will be a tower that is actually made up of all the dreams of all the people on Earth. And every time you go up higher you are actually going deeper and deeper into the dream world. Sort of like Inception, only when I say it is sort of like it I mean it is exactly like it.

#39 Posted by Hyuzen (538 posts) -

What if they unveil P5 at the big live live show: live?? that would be pretty cool 
  
They could have it take place in a alternate world, so the dungeons are places like a school or a department store that you can visit during the day time, maybe to find locations of hidden treasure or something cool like that

And the whole amalgamation would have a glitch in it where every so often, it casts Bufu on the one party member immune to ice attacks.
#41 Edited by Smallerz (128 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ:  I probably didn't explain that too well, but everyday shadows would only be to P5 what televisions are to P4 (in the sense that they both allow access to another world). They could still throw the usual Persona shadows in there too.

At which point Jeff is forced to cast Face Palm and is debilitated for five turns. Or until little Giant Bomb minions run onto the field and heal him up with random drinks. I think I'm taking this far too seriously.

That sounds a bit too much like Catherine. A lot of people think that it's going into something (Internet, Music), though 1,(Never played 2) and 3 weren't like that. It's possible, but it could work other ways.

@mutha3: I chose Exploud because Jeff enjoys being loud. And would naturally like the portmanteau pun the name has. My logic is flawless.

Internet seems kind of close to TV but it really does make the most sense. I could also see cell phones or something. Handhelds like in Devil Survivor.
