For the first time since it’s famous release, Persona 4 Golden is on sale at participating retailers for $29.99, $10 off. This seems to be part of a Persona sale by Atlus, as all of the Persona games on PSN are also discounted. Thanks for making me really regret not having a vita yet, Atlus. One thing I’m more interested in, however, is that Persona 5 seems to be a heavy focus for Atlus, and I know fans of the series want that game, like last year. I believe the sale is set to last two weeks, but as always, that’s up to the retailers. Participants vary depending on where you live, but Gamestop is one of them. Sorry, you’ll have to check your local store. Online is an option too. That’s right, the internet exists.
Not much to comment on but it never hurts!
Sony has price cut the vita in Japan, or did a short while ago to about 20,000 yen (~$215 US). In doing so, the Vita actually dramatically rose in sales, with several sources saying they are selling six times as many units in the past two weeks, even surpassing the 3ds just last week by only a few hundred units.
Will Sony realize that this is what North America needs in order to increase sales here? I guess we will findout, but I truly believe that even a slight price drop alone will not be enough. The memory cards absolutely need a price cut, even more so than the console itself, but more importantly, more games need to come out and support the vita. Another interesting thought is the vita being bundled with a more expensive version of the ps4, which would be really cool, but highly unlikely.
For now, I guess ill stick with the 3ds and it’s abundance of great games coming out, even if a few of them are ports. However, I really want to play persona 4 golden..
