Strikers 1945 Plus is also on sale for $2.99.

  • Eder García

    dumb question, these games can be played on the PS3?

    • MrFinalgamer

      They’re on the PSP, so unless you have one to connect to your PSP, and then play through your TV…no

    • Chestnut Bowl

      They are all PSP games. PSP games cannot be played on the PS3.

    • Sal Romano

      PSP and PS Vita only.

    • hush404

      Not silly if you don’t know. That said, why hasn’t Sony whipped up an emulator for the PSP on the PS3? They kind of already have something in place that runs PSPminis… I’d love to play PSP games on my PS3 and PS4.

  • MrFinalgamer

    They should just lower the price of Crimson Gem Saga. That game is on sale every other week >_>

  • new_tradition

    Crimson Gem Saga is tempting, but I dunno…Anyone play it?

    • Kiryu

      It’s a really good and underrated JRPG,you should give it a try especially for that price.

  • Six

    Growlanser is tempting.

  • dark-kyon

    legend of hero trails of sky need a sale discount,when the sequel get out many people gonna pass for not playing the first game.

  • Mr Fwibbles

    I think this could be worded better. They’re Japanese-developed games, but the sales are on the US PSN Store, not the Japanese one.

  • PrinceHeir

    I’ll get Growlanser :D

    • KIngpigeon96

      Good choice. I think it’s a really good game.

  • ecShane

    SoooooooooooooooOOOOOoo happy about persona 3 being on sale. I was a loser and got into 4 before anything else and now that I’m in love with the series I really want to play P3 before Persona Q comes out. I’ll take a look at the other games, really happy I got a 20 PSN card yesterday now. :3

    • Harry Potter

      P3 is the best in the series you should play it also P3 FES

  • Samsara09

    they could localize eternal punishment one of those days,but eh,I think the game will be the “final fantasy Type-0” of Atlus’s persona series.

    • Fujisawa Ruuzaa

      at least there is a localize psone version of the game

      • MrFinalgamer

        B-but I want that extra story they added ='(

        • Lara Croft

          You can’t always get what you want :(

      • Skerj

        It’s been so long, I forgot I ripped mine and put it on my PSP. I somehow thought it was always on there.

    • Thomas James

      Staff members from Atlus USA have gone on record saying that internal business politics with their parent company prevented the PSP version from receiving a localization as much as they themselves otherwise wanted to do it. I don’t know if the situation has changed since the ownership swap to Sega, but I know that historically speaking that the localized version hasn’t existed out of a lack of desire to do it.

    • Auragar

      They won’t localize it. Which is unfortunate.

  • Sevyne

    I really love how Atlus is always putting it’s PSP collection on sale. Opens up so many chances for new users to jump into their games at a really good price.

    • Samsara09

      Atlus sure is a nice company.

    • Elvick

      Wish more PSP publishers did that… or at least dropped their prices. I think there are still some $30 games on there. (and not newish ones either)

  • Solomon_Kano

    Always wanted to snag Crimson Gem Saga, but I hadn’t heard anything about it. For $5 though, it can’t hurt. And the whole Dept. Heaven series is on sale… I really just wanted Riviera, but upon understanding what DH was, I kinda want em all.

    No, no. Must not feed the backlog orz

    • new_tradition

      Do you mean the DH games are all connected?

      • Solomon_Kano

        Kinda. They have some shared elements in their world, but not on like a story level or anything, y’know? There’s not like an order for them to be played in or anything

    • Skerj

      Story is a bit cliche but for 5 bucks you can’t go wrong with it. I think I bought the majority of these when they were 5 bucks the last time outside of Kenka Bancho. ..which I will probably be buying now.

      • Solomon_Kano

        I can dig cliche. Thanks!

  • Gigus

    @Sal Romano
    Typo on “Yggra” Union. Should be “Yggdra” Union

    • Thomas James

      Thanks for pointing it out! Sal’s out running errands at the moment, so I just took care of it. :)

  • Cursingcomet

    God dammit!!!!! Damn you atlus, Just when I was about to buy the 3ds xl this popped out. *sigh* I guess the 3ds can wait. Probably gonna get all the games there including p3 ^^^ sugoi! ! and a new memory card.

  • Revorse

    Damn! How long will they be on sale? I have to wait 3 weeks to get paid.

    • Gigus

      Usually sales like this are up for only one week until the new store update is published.

  • bloodiOS

    Man, DJMax Portable 3 being $4.99 is too good, almost too good to be true… probably because it is! The game is still priced at $19.99 on the PlayStation Store. Also, Strikers 1945 Plus is only $2.99.

    • jujubee88

      5 bucks would be ridiculous. But, alas, I checked in the store and you’re right it’s still $19.99 (which is still worth it!).

    • greg_67

      Don’t think DJ Max 3 portable was ever on sale if you look it up on the playstation blog update.

  • jujubee88

    That list is absolutely bonkers!

    … In a good way! :)

  • xanxux

    Is grownlanser good? I’ve played the other PSP games listed..

    • Kiryu

      Yes it’s a really good game if you like strategy rpgs.

  • Lara Croft

    Besides Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time [already got it]. Any of these games worth getting?

    • Skerj

      For a fiver, you can’t really go wrong with any of the [S]RPGs. Gungnir is a bloody steal, I loved what I played of Yggdra Union (still have to beat it), Hexyz Force is decent, and so is Riviera.

      • Lara Croft

        Not really into SRPGs, but thanks anyway :)

        • Skerj

          Then outside of the Persona games, you might want to check out Crimson Gem Saga, Hexyz Force, and Riviera. Class of Heroes if you like first person dungeon crawlers.

          • Lara Croft

            Already played the Persona games. Might try out Class of Heroes. I did like Demon Gaze on the Vita.

  • Hendra Wijaya

    I want dragon ball tenkaichi,but it was gone

  • greg_67

    @Sal Romano

    I believe the DJ Max Portable 3 was never on the sale at least looking at the US PSN update blog post:

  • Syltique

    I got Hexyz Force last year, and probably put like 10 minutes into it. Should I bother with Gungnir, Growlanser, or Knights in the Nightmare?

  • Six

    Can you get banned for this? I hope you can get banned for this.
