      So Atlus will release this on PS3 but not XBox One or PC? Do they not like money?

        I am pretty sure all the main line Persona games (1-5) have only come out on Playstation. Spin-offs and side games made their way out to other platforms such as 3DS for Persona Q and Arena hit 360 and arcades. I don't think any of their games have been on PC.

        They're a Japanese company localizing their Japanese game for the two consoles it's being released on in Japan.

        XBO is a nonstarter in this discussion.

        PC isn't out of the question, but I don't expect it to happen.

        Either way, the vast majority of their sales would be on PS3/PS4.

        They released Catherine and Persona 4 Arena on the 360. I guess they didn't sell well enough on that platform

        The PS4 has an decent number of exclusives. It looks like Microsoft didn’t put a lot of effort into it this gen. But they both pale when compared to the Wii U. Of course, this is a simple "Yes" count. You can probably get a better comparison if you include the "Console" exclusives, but I'm not counting them on my phone again.

        Wii U - 246
        PS4 - 53
        XBox One - 17
