And anyway, andriasang claims the demo is harder than the real version. We'll see.

I'm kind of bummed by that since, as I said, I thought the demo was a bit too easy.  Well, hopefully later stages will offer more of a challenge.

Well this IS the Persona team. How bad could they fuck a game up?

I'm personally none to crazy for Persona.  The revered third title I thought was nothing but cool.  Seriously, one dungeon the entire game?  Same few piano notes?  Great idea.

And that's why P4 will always be superior to P3, folks!

Heh, I agree with this completely but I thought I was the only one who thought that way.  Frankly I thought P4's story was a lot better, too.

I'd happily pay $500 for it, but I seem to be in the minority there.  I mean, that's what I paid for my last smartphone (no contract) and this looks to be quite a bit more powerful than any smartphone.

I watched marginally famous "Let's play" YouTuber MasterLL play the demo....  I don't think I can do this.  Puzzle is one thing, but I don't like the timed aspect to figure out how to get to the top, and do so post-haste.

The story might be great and mature and all that - but I'd need more from gameplay as well (and an easy mode too maybe heh).

Eh, from what I played I thought it was pretty easy.  I can't really complain since it was stuck on easy mode, but I honestly would have preferred something harder.

Using UMDs would be completely moronic at this point.  The capacity of a UMD is pretty limited by modern standards.  Maybe they could have tried to make a whole new UMD-like optical drive with blu-ray densities, but flash cards just make more sense for a portable system.

As far as game announcements go, the system is still pretty far from its release date.  I wouldn't worry too much.  I would worry about getting a bunch of ports and not many original games, though...especially with all the talk about how easy it was to port PS3 games to it.

The Uncharted game, at least, was supposed to be an original entry in the franchise.

Thoughts on the demo:

Presentation, style, and atmosphere are basically perfect.  Even the menus are great.  Interestingly the music seems to incorporate themes from a lot of well-known classical music.  I really like how Holst's The Planets was used in the first stage.

The gameplay, though?  I'm still not sold.  As we suspected it's basically a timed puzzle-platformer.  Actually more puzzle than platformer, as movement is strictly locked to a grid.  Most of the challenge stems from trying to arrange blocks as fast as you can so that you can keep climbing, while snagging money and stuff for bonuses.  It worked well enough in the demo, but there just didn't seem to be that much depth to it.  I can see it getting old.  Of course, only easy mode was available in the demo.

Unfortunately, at least in the demo you never got the chance to move around the Stray Sheep bar.  The only thing you actually controlled were two stages of the platforming and a brief stint with the email system.  The email system is kind of interesting.  You just press a button on your control and Vincent writes a line, but then you can also delete a line and then rewrite it in different words, etc.  Kind of how people actually write things, except you don't know what he's going to write until he does it.

In conclusion, I still want the game but I'm still not sure how much I'll actually like it in the long run...

Downloading it now.

You seem to be ignoring people who have a PS3 and not a 360, Dice.
2964  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Catherine from Persona team on PS360 on: January 26, 2011, 06:44:36 PM
Well, it sounds like a pretty minor component.  Something to screw around in after you've beaten the game.  Why not?

Is it local-only?  That's what the description seems to indicate, anyway.

Stop adding to my list of games I need to buy!  I have enough of a blacklog as it is ;)
2966  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Namco Bandai is teasing something (Tales of Graces F localization?) on: January 25, 2011, 04:03:44 AM
That would be awesome, if true.

...though honestly part of me was actually looking forward to tackling it in Japanese.  It's an enjoyable way to practice.
2967  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nikkei: PSP2 this year, OLED Touchscreen, 3G on: January 24, 2011, 12:23:53 PM
Uh...you know you need to hold the switch for a while to actually turn it off, right?
2968  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nikkei: PSP2 this year, OLED Touchscreen, 3G on: January 24, 2011, 02:01:28 AM
I'd be pretty shocked if the 3G was free, but that doesn't mean it will be required.  To me it just seems like an obvious thing to have as an option.
2969  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: January 23, 2011, 06:43:58 PM
Yet it actually sold pretty well initially.  Sales died off later only due to the lack of good post-launch games.

Status symbol, the "it" factor  thing associated with Apple right now practically sells the products for them with out them doing anything, even negative publicity  increases the damn products sells.One of my friends actually camped  out for a damn Iphone because his girlfriend just had to have one :D.  Gamers are definitively more cautious about what they spend their money on. That is the main difference. When your handheld almost costs as much as your current generation home console made by the same company well..... I wonder when the slim model with  a cheaper price is coming out. The brand loyalists will gobble it up but alot of the other people will be waiting on the fence for a price cut.

I don't disagree about iPads mostly being a status device.  They seem like a complete waste of money to me, but the fact remains that they do sell.  And the PSP2 has the potential to have all the same basic capabilities.

But why shouldn't a portable device cost as much or more than a home console?  In the realm of consumer electronics smaller has always meant more expensive, all other things being equal.  By the way, the PSP launched before the PS3 and was certainly more expensive than the PS2 was at the time.  You can't compare the price of a brand-new portable device to a 5 year old console like that.
