E3 2009: Persona 5 Coming to Next-Gen Consoles?

50°
268w ago - Fans of Atlus' Shin Megami Tensei Persona series have been anxiously awaiting a next-gen update to the cult favorite series.

That wait might not be too much longer, to quote:

Today, Atlus told our E3 reporting team that Persona 5 "probably won't be on the PlayStation 2," and will likely be making the jump to the PlayStation 3 and/or Xbox 360.

It's much too soon to talk about release schedules, but just the notion that the game is in development is good enough for me.

"None of those rumors did justice to what we were actually doing with Project Natal. People expected a controller you put in your hands," Kim said to VentureBeat.

"We have done a lot of work in natural user interfaces. Voice recognition is one of them. That's why we have been able to deliver development kits for it this week."

Microsoft hasn't gone it completely alone though, as Kim admitted "it's a combination of partners and our own software", and some have theorised that acquisitions like 3DV's were designed to insure the company against similar patents.

268w ago - Since GT PSP was announced yesterday, we haven't really gotten a good look at what this big, little game actually plays like.

Sure, the first [Register or Login to view links] are impressive - but to see it running at a full 60fps is a completely different story...

Although the driving skills (as usual) leave something to be desired, you've not seen Trial Mountain look this good since Gran Turismo 4.
