Soul Hackers would be sweet as a PSP port/remake with American localization.

And Persona 2 Innocent Sin as well.

If that happened, that would really make me an SMT fanboy.

I'll beg like a dog for Soul Hackers.  Innocent Sin would be fantastic too, but I played and beat that one, with some help from Oracle of Maiya's excellent script translation, so I'm a little less hellbent on getting a localized version.  I never got too far in Soul Hackers due to my lack of Japanese literacy so I'm more hellbent on that one getting a localization.

Oracle of Maya is good. Better than certain other translations.

They've patched a translation onto Innocent Sin since then. It would be silly to go through the game now looking back and forth at the script.

Orace of Maiya translation differs from the patched one. Can't comment on the details, but that's what I've heard.

Differs as in it's a more true to the original? The patched version is very well done. Though I can't compare it to the original, I haven't noticed any errors.

Well, back when I played and beat Innocent Sin, Oracle of Maiya's script translation was all we had, and that didn't even surface till I was 2/3s through Innocent Sin.

I'm very, very tempted to buy a XBOX360 because of the new RE5 bundle. The price is VERY attractive considering everything that's in the package. But I want to know Atlus' next move regarding the SMT series. What if I buy a xbox and they release Persona 5 or SMT4 exclusively for the PS3? That would suck. A lot.

To be honest, I wouldn't be surprised if they stuck to handhelds exclusively.  SMT's biggest market is Japan, and consoles are dead in Japan.  The only things really worth developing in that market are DS and PSP games.

Good point. But considering the popularity of the persona series in the west, wouldn't a console game still be worth it?

The Wii isn't dead. I wouldn't be surprised to see them jump from PS2 to Wii development.

That would suck for me. I'm not even considering getting one of those.

The -console- isn't, but game sales are abysmal.

I have the Oracle of Maiya script and the fan-patched Innocent Sin, and as far as I can tell, the difference is as simple as translation vs localization. The former is fine for reading, but the latter is best for playing.

Ok, I need some help with Devil Summoner.

I got to Chapter 3 and suddenly I am getting raped by these fiends.

I'm level 22 and no matter where I go, these fiends are chasing me. I can't find any place to do "regular" random encounters and/or get some new demons.

These fiends are wiping me out within the first 30 seconds of the fight.

Am I supposed to negotiate or am I completely screwed and going to have to restart my game like I suspect?
