The Daily Hotness: Atlus gives us a Persona day

Atlus always knows just what to say. For example, knowing I was feeling blue today, it decided to announce a whole slew of Persona-related news for me to giddily squeal over. I don’t mind that I just bought a new copy of Persona 4, which I’ve yet to play, for $50. Or that I’m 80 hours into Persona 3 and still not finished, despite buying the game several years ago. I’m going to keep buying Atlus products and be happy. Oh, and one more reason to buy a Vita.
