I'm 30-something. I play games and sometimes type things. I summon deities and demons, shoot raiders and wish to settle down with another girl for turn-based battles on the beach, chocobo rides and torchlit dinners in ancient Nordic tombs or mysterious castles that appear at night.

When I'm not slaying dragons or saving the galaxy, I'm probably roaming the open world, rolling into a ball to access secret passages and seeing if my Paragon rating is high enough for discounts at the mall.

For other things and stuff about me you can read here, here and here. You will learn of my origins, my trials and tribulations, how I became a superpixie and what games I really, really like!

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.

Bad news: 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.
