Persona 4 on the PSN

#1 Edited by Jrinswand (1695 posts) -

So, I'm sure this has already been asked before, but does anybody know what the chances are of Persona 4 seeing a PSN release in light of the recent addition of Persona 3: FES? I know that Sony probably wants to push sales of Persona 4 on the Vita, but do you guys think I'll ever be able to play the PS2 version of the game on my non-backwards compatible PS3 in any capacity? Aside from the DS Lite, I generally dislike handhelds and I have absolutely zero interest in ever purchasing a Vita.

AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH! Put a damn question mark in titles like these! You disappoint countless people with your wanton writing habits!

@Video_Game_King: I would edit it if I knew how. Sorry. I haven't spent much time on message boards in the past seven years or so. Plus I've only recently begun hanging around the Giant Bomb forums (likely because I deactivated my Facebook account in an obviously unsuccessful attempt to get some serious grad school work done).

They won't canabilize the Vita sales. If they were to release it they would so well after the Vita version, just like Persona 3 FES was released way after P3P.

@Jrinswand:

My guess is no. It would take away sales from the PS Vita version.

I agree with what everyone else is saying. They'll wait a while after Golden comes out and then probably put it up.

How much of a gap was there between P3P and Persona 3: FES going up last week? I'm trying to get a sense of how long I may have to end up waiting. Of course, what really bums me out about all of this is that I actually used to have a perfectly good copy of Persona 4 and a 60 gig PS3 to run it on, but the freaking thing got the YLOD on me before I ever got around to playing it.

Yeah the title is misleading.

You can't. I'm very disappointed in you. Don't you realize how many people you've hurt with this reckless behaviour?

You guys. Seriously, if the lack of a question mark in the title of a thread on an (albeit rather prominent) message board is enough to get you that worked up, I must say that I have to question your judgment.

@Jrinswand: I have to question your judgement in thinking that it wouldn't be confusing to title a thread so bluntly as though it were an announcement when it's nothing of the sort.

I don't think the PS2 version of P4 will even get put on PSN because of The Golden. Although I would have said the same thing about P3 around the time P3P was coming out, so who knows.

Meh, there's always the PS4.
