First print Runs of SMT: Persona for the PSP will have the soundtrack included. Gamestop's website makes it sound like it is a pre-order/special thing but all first print (only print maybe?) will have the soundtrack included. Amazon's page makes no mention of the soundtrack as of 6/21 but rest assured ATLUS has said the game will ship with a soundtrack. So pre-order it! :)

I think this is the pack-in that comes with the game (in the same way that Persona 3 came packed in the soundtrack and the artbook). I remember reading an article on either IGN or Gamespot about it, but I haven't been able to find the link.

I'm sure Amazon will have it as well, as the email from Atlus said it was all pre-orders IIRC.

They sent out an email to the "Atlus Faithful" saying that the soundtrack would come in all first run copies of the game (all copies on release day will have this as a pack-in, same thing they said with Dark Spire) so don't worry!

They say that about every game they release these days... it'll probably be available for a long time after release.

I've been playing Persona 4 and really loving it but my god this game does not appear to have aged well. As someone who didn't play it back in the day do you think I'll enjoy it now?

Well Persona 1 is nothing like Persona 3 and 4, and it's a pretty average RPG.
Pretty much the entire game is a first-person dungeon crawler, and it's true that the people who have played it now instead of back then end up not really liking it.

But that's mainly for the PSX version, I don't know exactly how much was added in this version.

As much as I like 3 and 4, this being pretty faithful to the original, I've a feeling the story, character interaction, and growth are minimal. It sounds like pretty much a dungeon crawler. Not sure whether I'm picking it up. Will keep the preorder bonus in mind though. Thank OP!

i don't think the original persona was ever localized for the US market -- so this is the only opportunity you have to play it unless you can read Japanese.

I'm fairly confident that I will be buying a PSP just to play this game.

Persona Revelations was on the PS1. I sold my US copy for $85+ on eBay as soon as I heard of the PSP version. Obviously not regretting that now. A lot of people I know did the same thing once the PSP version was announced.

No, it was definately localized for the PS1 in NA.

so does everyone think the price on the PS1 version will absolutely plummet once the PSP version comes out? I noticed that Marvel Vs Capcom 2 has dropped in price since the XBLA & PSN versions were announced (I would assume it drops even more when the game is available for download)

I really want a copy of Persona 1 for the PS1 (for collection purposes) but I refuse to pay $80-$100 for one when I know this one is coming out.

As many have already pointed out, it was localized (pretty badly) for the PS1, under the short-lived Revelations line.

This PSP release is pretty much a port of the original, with cleaned up graphics and the re-addition of a side quest that was removed in the PS1 localization due to time constraints.

Actually PSP release has ALOT of changes. They bastardized the original changing names, making one guy black, etc. This should be completely unedited with original names, dialogs, changing how the map works, and so on.

Also I personally loved the songs in Persona 3 & 4. The battle music was fast paced and catchy and didnt have the annoying random battle music that alot of other rpg's had.

Some games do and some games don't. I know that Star Ocean 2 dropped a bit once the PSP version came out. But games like FFVII and Valkyrie Profile tend to still go high even after a re-release is out.

Yeah, that's what I meant that it's "pretty much a port of the original". I was referring to the original Japanese release, with Mark being white, etc.

Hmm - might be missing it, but I don't see mention of the soundtrack at the amazon link? Could that be a Gamestop exclusive?

No, I don't think prices will drop. Persona is a game for collectors always has and always will be. The reason the prices went down on FFVII and MvC2 was because most of the demand for them was from the non-hardcore. It was from casual/semi-casual gamers looking to try out some of the seminal games from their respective genres. Once they heard that they could get them from XBLA/PSN, they could've cared less if it was a physical or digital copy.

Collectors, like yourself, will always want a physical copy. Persona 1 had an incredibly low print run and was never reprinted. Thus, it is highly saught after.


But games like FFVII and Valkyrie Profile tend to still go high even after a re-release is out.


Um, FFVII crashed and burned after the PSN release. Most completed listings are ending at $40, which is down from ~$100 in March of 2008. I guess $40 is high when you consider it could be had for $20 new at one point, but it had a huge drop due entirely to the re-release. Its even losing points on Goozex, I believe.

Per Atlus, every copy of the first run of the game will come with the double disc soundtrack. No reason to order from GS on this one.
