I’m a newcomer to the current-gen console scene, having just purchased a Playstation 3 earlier this month, and a PS Vita earlier this year. With the substantial amount of exclusives that Sony had amassed in the past seven years, getting into the whole Playstation thing felt like being handed the keys to your first car. Suddenly, I wanted to go places — experience everything I had tried to ignore before while I played games on my PC. I powered through Uncharted, I’m in the middle of Demon’s Souls, and I’m currently taking my sweet time exploring the vast landscape of Red Dead Redemption.
And I got so, so hooked on Persona.
Persona 3 FES was great. Persona 4 Golden, even more so. Earlier this week, the PSN store had a sale on some “Ultimate Editions” — basically full games with all the DLC in one discounted package. Persona 4 Arena Ultimate Edition, the unconventional fighting game follow-up to the RPG, was going for a couple bucks cheaper than what just the game would normally cost. And with all the DLC, too! I picked it up right away.
