Atlus cuts PSN prices on its PSP range: half-price on Persona and more

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.

    If these price drops carry over to europe, I may just take this chance to add the persona games to my rather slim PSP collection for when I buy myself a Vita. (I know im going to get one, just waiting till theres a more sizeable collection of games that interest me)

    I wonder how long this will last

    My understanding is this is a permanent drop, though I could be wrong. It's a nice precedent if it is permanent though since psn prices are stupid ridiculous for older games.

    "From developer Sting?" I didn't know The Police were games developers :-p
