    The eagerly-awaited Persona 5 has been confirmed and will be released in 2015 exclusively on PlayStation platforms - the PS3 and the PS4. Further details are currently unknown, but at least we have a teaser to feast our eyes upon. This might be a good time to pick up Persona 4 if you still haven't and refresh your memory.​

    YES, one of my favorite Japanime series coming to PS4! Here's hoping we get an opening as feel-good as P4G!

    very considerate of them to release the game on the ps3 still. hope the games won't differ strongly in content though...

    lol, i can see it already, the story being about smartphones and electronical social networks. a hidden boss where a demon will impersonate mark zuckerberg... oh yeah

    It was somewhat to be expected considering the fact that P5's development began right after Catherine was released, in 2011, or so the story goes.

    I'm fairly sure this is Sony's doing because the PS4 is doing terribly in Japan. I wish they didn't delay it.

    yeah but they could just as well have scrapped finishing the thing for ps3 and instead concentrate on the ps4 version alone. Probably would have given the ps4 a considerable salesboost too. over in japan at least. while atlus games are very highly regarded over here, they don't quite sell as good as many fans expect them to.
    ha, its probably a good thing atlus doesnt belong to any console manufacturer

    It was announced for the ps3 a while ago, so I'm guessing the ps4 version was a last minute decision. They'll probably be pretty similar.

    Huh. The PS4 must have a strong female following if they're catering to the purse owner fans.

    There goes any reason I have for getting a PS3. I'll just wait for Sony to release an Uncharted HD Collection and for a MGS4 port and it's all good.

    MGS4 is already on PSNow if that's a preferred method.

    I kind of hope for P5 to be a little darker, like P3.

    It's good that they figured out it may not be best idea to release games at the end of consoles life cycle exclusively.

    OK I simply do not understand why is it better to stream game aka basically playing game worse and pay for it instead of keeping that PS3 under TV set? Then again I don't understand people wanting re-releases either.

    I thought the PS3 is still going to stay alive some years.
