Atlus wants to takeover your PSP or Vita with their “Re-Vita-lized PSN Price Drop Event.” The publisher has slashed the prices of their PlayStation Network games by 25-50%, meaning that now is the best time to dive into a quirky Japanese RPG (or several, which I’m sure Atlus would prefer).
Here’s the full list of “Re-Vita-lized” titles and their new prices:
- Persona (New Price: $19.99, Original Price: $39.99)
- Persona 2: Innocent Sin (New Price: $29.99, Original Price: $39.99)
- Persona 3 Portable (New Price: $19.99, Original Price: $39.99)
- Knights in the Nightmare (New Price: $14.99, Original Price: $29.99)
- Riviera: The Promised Land (New Price: $9.99, Original Price: $14.99)

- Class of Heroes (New Price: $14.99, Original Price: $39.99)
- Crimson Gem Saga (New Price: $14.99, Original Price: $29.99)

Are you ready to finish the fight with the Locust and the Lambent? I hope so because Microsoft and Epic Games plan to release Gears of War 3 in three different configurations this week: a standard edition, a Limited Edition and a $150 Epic Edition. A Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 console bundle is also on the schedule.
Atlus is making a different hugely anticipated game available this week with Shin Megami Tensei Persona 2: Innocent Sin for the PSP. Innocent Sin was originally released on the PSone in Japan, but has never made it to America until now.
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
The Persona series has built a strong cult following in the West over the last several years, and its fans will finally get a chance to play the one chapter that never made it to the United States. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin will be releasing on the PSP in North America this coming fall. Over 12 years in the making, Innocent Sin aims to have all the features of a great PSP remake – enhanced visuals, 16:9 widescreen, new interface, original sidequests, and an optional remastered soundtrack. No word yet on the typically awesome special editions Atlus is famous for, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted.
Persona 2 is credited as where the franchise found its own identity and distinguished itself from its parent meta series. Although the second part of the installment, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, was quickly localized after its Japanese release, this first chapter unfortunately never made it.
