This is just a heads up for those curious why Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
isn't available on the PSP and Vita PSN storefronts.
When I got home tonight with my copy of Etrian Odyssey IV
and a $20 PSN card, I came home with the intent of downloading Persona 3 Portable
, but looked to see if Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
was up as a PSOne Classic. Turns out for PSP and Vita owners its just not there on their respective storefronts.
Here's the good news and the bad news.
Good news #1
: Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
is available on the PS3 and PC PSN storefronts, you can purchase it there.
Good news #2
: You can download it and play it on PS3 and PSP, as expected, PSP owners will simply have to purchase the game from PC or PS3 PSN storefronts and then check their download history on PSP to download it to PSP.
: No work around for PS Vita owners, Sony didn't authenticate this PSOne classic for Vita yet ;(
Being that Sony completely handles PSOne Classic conversions, this is a Sony problem and not an Atlus one. SCEA is aware of the matter and have put up this thread
to address it and will update it if anything changes.
Sucks for anyone that wanted to jump on that tonight, but at least its being addressed. I just ended up going with P3P
. Hopefully the matter is resolved soon.
