There's still plenty of growth to be seen on Playstation. Sony also must help with the multimedia aspect: anime, music etc 

But going multi platform wouldn’t hurt either. 
Can be the same for SMTV if they went multi platform instead of exclusive.

Well it might, if Sony did have a big investment into its multimedia.

Never going to happen. This ain't 2018.

I dont think people expected The witcher 3, Cuphead, Overwatch on Switch and Joker, Sans and Cuphead in Smash to happen but here we are. They may be unrelated but you dont know what will happen. 

Nintendo and Atlus have already had every opportunity to announce it though, unlike your other games. Instead SW got P5S. 

No one knows whats going to happen, doesn't mean we can't use obvious indicators to predict whats going to happen.

The year's got nothing to do with it. It's not a demanding game at all so it'd be easy and cheap to port over, not bringing it to Switch is simply leaving money on the table for no good reason.

They are already making plenty of money on PS and have Sony's Aniplex/Music backing. The money on the table is a fraction of what they get know and might not be enough to compromise what they have now.

It wouldn't "compromise" anything. They'd simply add some extra income from Switch while losing absolutely nothing.



I didn't think there would be a direct this week, cos I'm a pessimistic dunce.

Yes it would: Sony's Aniplex/Music backing.

How would you know that it would compromise their backing on the anime and music? That appears to be a separate entity.

Joker and Persona 5 content would’ve been impossible in Smash Bros. if that were the case.

There's no reason at all for a Switch port to compromise that, just like StudioMHDR didn't lose Microsoft's backing when Cuphead came to Switch, or Platinum Games didn't end their partnership with Nintendo when Wonderful 101 went multiplat.

They are not. Its simply an advantage of having a company with different arms. If Aniplex and Sony Music back away from Persona after Sony PS loses exclusivity then thats a serious consequence for Atlus. Business partnerships are a thing. 

Your smash conclusion is plain wrong. Atlus owns Joker.

Microsoft is not Sony, and Cuphead is not Persona lol

Persona is a mulltimedia franchise with concerts, album releases and anime. MS is also willing to put all their games on PC while Sony is not. Completely different scenarios.

So what’s going on with Horizon Zero Dawn then?

Thats different. PlayStation isnt completing with pc thats why you will never see horizon coming to xbox or nintendo. Anyways persona 5 is almost 4 year old now so i dont think it would sell well on the switch if they decide to port it over

There is no reason why a Switch port would have any impact whatsoever on music deals. Kai Mao is right, they're separate entities, and Sony does not own Persona. Seems to me you simply don't like the idea of a Playstation exclusive appearing on Nintendo and are grasping at straws, to be honest.
