#1 Posted by Jeffsekai (7042 posts) -

Well thats to the ER I;m all about Persona now...and after much searching I found a copy of Persona 3 yay! I'm about 1 hr in and I'm loving it. The beginning seems a lot more interesting that P4s.
 
Now for my question, how do you pause? I'm assuming start button but mine dosnt work so I'm not sure if you can't pause or if my controller is broken. 
 
Thanks!

This is an excellent question. I just finished playing through Persona 3 two weeks/ish ago I think and the one thing i never did was pause the game. So I looked it up in the manual and start and select don't do anything. There is no pause button. The pause button is a lie! However, once you get the ability to equip and change personas and gear you can open the menu for that with Triangle I think it is and that will act as sort of a quasi pause.

I don't consider it trolling.
 
There's really no reason for a pause. At all.

@wordsgohere: ty sir, if it was a real time game that would make sense.  but you can put your controler down and leave it there for 8 hours and nothing bad will happen to you.
