The demo is on PSN and Live.
Just got done with it, and it seems interesting enough.
Hopefully theres more types of puzzles in the game than just whats in the demo.
Everything else seems cool and weird as ****... those crazy ass Japs

Yeah I'll probably get it sooner or later. Should download the demo tonight and try it out.

Best description I've seen so far is "Silent Hill Tetris". Don't know how well it will do, but I'm interested in trying it. It has the pedigree at least; Persona staff and Studio 4C.

Apparently the original release in Japan was deemed too difficult, so they put out a patch to make it easier. NA is getting the patched version, but it'd be neat to see the hard mode as an unlockable or something.

I want Persona 5 on 360 and PS3...

But I'll probably check out Catherine eventually. It's not what I expected when they first announced it, so I'm a little less excited for it than I was.

Was hoping for a dungeon crawl, rather than a puzzle game.

I keep hearing about this game and don't know a thing about it. All of the sudden, it's on Twitter, game sites, forums including here...

Guess I'll cue up the demo.

Wow, all this time I thought this was an RPG.

After missing the mark with Persona 4 I'm glad they decided to go in another direction, they seem to be a pretty talented team.

Missing the mark on Persona 4? You won't find one other person to agree with that sentiment.

They didn't miss the mark, but I feel like Persona 3 was a better game.

There were lots of improvements in P4 in terms of gameplay, but the story didn't draw me in as P3 did. I'm not sure if I just got ADD and started playing something else, but I put in over 100 hours into P3, but couldn't do that with P4. Ended up not finishing the game, but might still go back to it (gotta find someone with a PS2 again...)

I played the demo last night on PS3...eh, it's alright, I'll probably buy it when it's $10-$15.

I like the story and the craziness but the gameplay seems pretty thin. Definitely a step in the right direction though.

I guarantee you the reason why you couldn't get into P4 was because you spent 100 hours in an almost identical game just a year before.

I think the cast of characters and the localization quality of P4 is maybe the best thing Atlus has ever done. That game had character like you read about.

The demo was pretty good. Died once on the second puzzle >.< Didn't see the create block item.

Reading the review on IGN now. 9.0

Wasn't expecting any major publications to give it that good a score.

Well, I guess everything is there. It's just a question of whether or not climbing blocks is enough for people in the game play department.

And I just noticed the soundtrack for the first level in the demo is a remix of Holst's Planet Suite.

I'm so glad this is being ported to the US. When it was released in Japan, there was a lot of speculation that it would never cross the Pacific.
