Persona 5 and More Confirmed for PlayStation 3 in North America

8w ago - Atlus PR Manager John Hardin confirmed Persona 5 and more titles are coming for PlayStation 3 in North America with details below.

To quote: I've gotten your emails, your tear-stained letters, your carrier pigeons, and the erstwhile smoke signal. We've read them, and we - finally - can fully and officially reply to them with the best kind of confirmation ever: ATLUS is bringing three new Persona games to the PlayStation family starting in fall of 2014.

"But John," you'll ask, "what are these new Persona games of which you speak?" Well, I'm glad you asked that, illusory writing device! Let's just cut right to the quick. Persona 5 is coming. In 2015. And will be the first Persona RPG developed for the PlayStation 3 system.

That's about all we know about the game, because the plot, characters, and everything about it is being kept under wraps. The one thing we do know is that series director Katsura Hashino hinted that the storyline will be about throwing off the chains of oppression to find one's true self. But how that theme is addressed in Persona 5? We have no idea.

Next up, we have the sequel to Persona 4 Arena ญญ- the hit fighting game for PS3. The number "2″ isn't powerful enough for all the awesome new content in this game, so we're calling it Persona 4 Arena...

10w ago - Sony Associate Producer Michael Pulst confirmed alongside a video trailer today that Murasaki Baby for PlayStation Vita is coming to North America.

Below are the details, to quote: HI there everyone!

Last summer at Gamescom we debuted the new, exclusive PS Vita game Murasaki Baby, from new Italian indie development team Ovosonico, and announced that it was coming to European markets this year. Today, we're excited to share that it's officially coming to North America later this year too!

In the game, Baby wakes up in a dream world, envisioned by a child's fantastical imagination and populated by weird and wonderful characters.

In her hand is a purple heart-shaped balloon. She has lost her mommy, and it's the player's role to be her guardian. Take her hand, and guide her on a fantastic journey through the nightmarish land.





As you travel through the dream world, you will encounter many situations that will require lateral thinking to navigate. Using PS Vita's rear touch pad, you can switch the mood of the game from serene green fields to a scary hellish world. It's up to you to figure out how to use the tools at your disposal to keep Baby safe and navigate through the story.

Video: Reveal PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 Trailer, Confirmed Fake

250°
49w ago - Earlier today a purported PlayStation 4 / PS4 E3 2013 trailer went viral on YouTube, and has since been confirmed as a fake by Sony.

Below are the details via Kotaku (linked above) alongside the PlayStation 4 / PS4 trailer for those who missed it:

That Cool 'PS4 Teaser' Is A Fake, Sony Says - Whoever made this clip wants you to believe it’s the first look at the PlayStation 4 hardware. But, Sony tells me it's a fake. Too bad.

Nevertheless, I wouldn't blame someone just wandering over onto the Internet for guessing it wasn't. Let's consider the footage, shall we? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and the super-slick 44-second video seems like it might be the work of a professional creative shop.

The facial reaction shots are intercut with looks at an already-announced PS4 game - Infamous: Second Son, in case it's not clear - and hardware but the images and video in those segments are readily available all over the Web. And the supposed hardware could be one of the many fan-made renders that are jostling for attention on the Internet.

Granted, this could be the work of MOFILM, the firm that Sony recently hired to handle crowd-sourced advertising. As good as it looks, it almost certainly be the work of a dedicated fan looking to capitalize on the excitement leading...
