Atlus has stumbled across a
terribly clever pun involving the name of Sony's new handheld system,
and sensibly decided to mark the occasion with a big sale of the PSP
titles in its PlayStation Network back-catalog. Either that or the
publisher's got a warehouse full of digital downloads somewhere that
need to be cleared to make way for new Vita stock: either way, it's a
good excuse for you to get some of the titles for less than half
their previous price.
The PSP version of Persona 3 made it onto our list of the Best PSP Games, and the series has earned a place in the JRPG canon. Besides the PSP versions of
these titles – all of them remade and optimized
for Sony's portable – the company's also cut prices on titles like
the Dept Heaven series, bite-sized RPG Hexyz Force, and truant
beat-'em-up Kenka Bancho. This last, along with dungeon-crawler Class
of Heroes, is cut from $39 to $15, marking the biggest savings of the
sale. You can find all these titles on PSN now.
