My two cents, but they're putting an EO-style Persona game on the 3DS because EO games have always been available on Nintendo systems, and an idol game on Vita because Vita owners like those types of games. They're not "screwing" the Vita fanbase--on the contrary they're giving the fanbase what it wants. Or at least what's pretty popular and sells well on the Vita. Same reason goes for Persona Q on 3DS.

if you're an RPG fan and hate dance games then it might seem they're screwing you over. But they're not screwing the fanbase as a whole.

If Atlus decided to make a new version of Persona 3 I'd be surprised if it wasn't on Vita. Again they'd just be catering to the appropriate fanbases.

Now's the time to start expanding their userbases.  3DS owners buy rhythm games (see: Miku; Theatrhythm).  Vita owners by first-person dungeon crawlers (see: Demon Gaze).

I don't understand why they'd segregate the games like this.  They've been trying to expand Etrian Odyssey's userbase recently (with Millenium Girl).  They have the perfect opportunity to expand to Vita since there's already plenty of Persona fans already there (see: Persona 4 Golden) yet they make it 3DS-exclusive.  

I don't see the reason for exclusivity of either game, to be honest.

because they are both quick cash grabs, simply reskinned versions of EO and Miku that they can make a quick buck off of. to port it over would cost more money

These arguments about the various persona games (though understandable) are just a little too fixed on the individual wants on the people making them in my opinion, cynical though it can sound it is true that Atlus are simply using their IPs to the maximum and building on top of established games to create new titles which will sell reasonably well and will be inexpensive to make.

The fact that they're not what you wanted or you feel they're on the wrong platform is a feeling I can understand, but sometimes you have to accept that this is a business and that this isn't the first or last time someone has felt or will feel screwed over by a company - it comes with being a gamer unfortunately

The key here is that Atlus is a small company with limited resources - the EO team is not very big I'd imagine and therefore a port would be either inconvenient or expensive if they had to outsource it and so PQ on 3DS only is understandable.

Also I expect they're hoping for some cross fertilization by using the more famous persona IP to attract more people to an EO-type game, hopefully meaning that future EO games will be more popular.

The final thing to remember is that although Atlus are small, their quality is consistent and so I expect even P4Dancing to be a good game even if it's not everyone's cup of tea - at the end of the day I expect all 4 games to be good and if you don't like the fact that a vita RPG wasn't one of them, my advice is to wait and see. An enhanced version of P5 is an inevitability and the film means that an ultimate P3 is also likely. Also, given how well P4G did on vita, I don't think we've been abandoned just yet, so look on the bright side

Oh, and one last thing, how come no-one complained about SMT4 being on vita? (I can't remember this level of butthurt)

3 games got a date in Japan




PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m

Fantastic news peeps


Hi Everyone. Amongst all the excitement for the launch of PS4 and, of course, Killzone Shadowfall, here at Guerrilla Cambridge we’ve still been busily working away on Killzone Mercenary. We’re now very pleased to announce that there will be a number of updates coming over the next few months.

First up is Update 3. In terms of functionality there will only be minimal changes, but this is the patch that reduces the size of the other patches! After installing this patch it will free up around 800MB of space for those who have already installed Updates 1 & 2. Update 3 should be ready in the next few weeks.

Update 4 is due in January and is being designed to improve Matching and to help reduce join-game connectivity problems, as well as adding an auto team-rebalancing feature.

Following that is the big one: Update 5. Two new multiplayer maps for FREE, and the release of offline Botzone for Mercenary and Guerrilla Warfare modes.

Also in the first few months of 2014 will be Update 6, in which we’re working towards continued refinements and adding support for playing Killzone Mercenary on Vita TV.

We hope you enjoy the additions to Mercenary. Happy gaming.


This is some awesome work..good stuff SOny/GG Cambridge. I was waiting for dlc news and this exceeded my expectations
