Excerpt: When it comes to Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable ( P3P ), the most common question I've received is, "What will I get out of the experience if I've already played the PS2 version?" The answer isn't an easy one. P3P is my third time playing through Persona 3 , and I loved every minute of it.
Summary: Any RPG fan with a PSP should pick up this title, no questions asked. For those gamers who already own the console version the addition of the new playable female character (as great of an addition as it is), does not constitute another purchase.
Pros: Constantly evolving story, even dozens of hours into the game, Great art style, Fun, upbeat music, Good implementation of control options, Great gameplay integration of NPC interaction, Tons of content (around 100 hrs)
Excerpt: The love Persona 3 has garnered since its release in 2007 has been no secret, especially here at RPGamer. However, since the game has seen two prior versions on the PlayStation 2, many might wonder why they should pick up another version on the PSP.

Excerpt: Back in 2007, Persona 3 hit store shelves with little fanfare, and a small, limited printing of copies from publisher Atlus. However, the game became a huge hit with fans of JRPG titles, as it …
Summary: Persona 3 Portable would have been a great game even if it was nothing more than a straight port of the PlayStation 2 game, but instead Atlus added enough new content to make this the first must-own PSP RPG of the year! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Conclusion: All Atlus had to do was faithfully reproduce Persona 3 on PSP and call it a day. Instead, Persona 3 Portable boasts plenty finesse tweaks, realizes fan wishes, and fundamentally doubles the content of the original.
