Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment was re-released on the PSN network as a PS1 classic a couple of weeks ago. The game was meant to be available for download on the PS3, PSP, and PS Vita. Unfortunately when the game was released, it could only be downloaded and played on a PS3. When the PS Store was updated the following week, gamers were able to transfer the game over to the handheld devices. However, the game was still unavailable to those who did not own a PS3.  That is about to change with this week’s PS Store update.

Today, it was announced on Sony’s PlayStation Vita Support forum that Persona 2: Eternal Punishment will be available for download on the PSP and PS Vita when their respective PS Stores update tomorrow. One of the Digital Platforms Community managers also pointed out that completing the PSP and PS Vita compatibility on the ESRB website was a necessary step in getting the game to be compatible with those systems via the PS Store. This was probably one of the reasons, if not the reason, why the game was initially incompatible with Sony’s handhelds.

In any case, if you have not already checked out the Persona series due to how rare and expensive these games used to be, you now have the opportunity to get them for a much more reasonable price. There was a remake of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment that was released last year on the PSP in Japan, but as of right now, it seems very unlikely that the remake is going to be released elsewhere.
