Black Friday is coming up soon and in the spirit of the sale-athons scheduled for the coming weeks, here's a little gift from Atlus.
Atlus has announced their "SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA" PlayStation Network sale, which means that more than a few great Atlus productions will be 50% off between now and November 29. Included in the sale are titles like Shin Megami Tensei: Persona and Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable for the PSP, which has been received extremely well by the critics and loyal fans. If you're at all familiar with Atlus' comical press releases, you won't be surprised to read the following by Manager of PR and Sales, Aram Jabbari:
"We really started with a simple idea: what if we could spoil our fans for the holidays by cutting something in half. From there, it was basically a lot of late nights, major damage to office furniture, a couple of trips to the emergency room, and a few really beautifully sliced watermelons. Finally, we realized it had been under our noses the whole time: why not cut our games in half? Sadly, after destroying the last couple Demon's Souls Deluxe Editions in the office, we realized the BEST option was to cut PRICES in half, hence this sale, which we're calling, in full caps for maximum attention-grabbage, the SUPER-MEGA-ULTRA 50% off PlayStation Network sale. Things were harmed in the making of this sale."
Good stuff. If you're interested, log on to the PSN via the PS3 or PSP and check out the full list of discounted titles. Atlus has faithfully served their followers this generation, and PlayStation and role-playing fans hold this publisher in the highest esteem. Oh, but it's true.
