Not the most exciting news in the world, but in case you were wondering what Atlus's E3 set-up looked like there's a glimpse of it in N-Sider's E3 newsfeed. Unfortunately I can't permalink to their live blogging posts, but http://www.digitaldevildb.com/bbs/attachment.php?attachmentid=17&d=1184349224">here's a link to the image.

If you've seen any other pictures (or have your own) feel free to share them.

Tony's link seems to be working now, and the picture is big enough to actually make out the booth.  Unfortunately, this years booth looks pretty miserable when compared to last years.

I don't really see myself buying any Atlus titles after P3 (boycotting them due to FES) so this years poor line-up doesn't bother me all that much.

They have a hotlinking system installed. If you go to the site and just refresh the image link, it works fine. Not something I could easily tell considering I'd already been to the site.

As for FES, eh. It's a lot of content to translate and including it for free with the first release of the title would cut their margins down to nothing, if not make them negative. If it does well enough, maybe they'll bother to... It certainly would make sense. It's not like they're done with the older platforms yet, clearly.

I did not expect Atlus USA to include FES with the original release of P3.  Well not with a $49.99 price tag anyway.  

I feel like Atlus USA really left the fans hanging.  Especially considering the weak showing at this years E3.  

All I really want is for Atlus USA to commit to a concrete stance on the localization of FES.

Well in that case, you and I are in agreement. silent

Lame. They have recently hinted at localizing FES if P3 sells well enough. If anything, we should boycott them for not localizing DS PSP and SMT 1&2 on GBA.

I'm starting to wonder if they didn't bother with DS on PSP because they figured it would sell like crap. I mean, even big publishers with well known franchises seem to be doing rather poorly on there... I don't know if I blame them for it.

I believe they did come to a concrete stance. It's not coming here.

^Nah, I was told it was due to technical issues by a former Atlus employee. As far as selling like crap, what Atlus titles burn up the charts? None of them sell that well.

I think we're on totally different wavelengths here. Most of Atlus's games apparently sell within their general expectations or they'd not bother to even be in existence any longer. No one is expecting Atlus games to even usually crack the top ten in any given months, I'm sure even including the company itself.

Devil Summoner on PSP is an RPG, sure. And so are most Atlus games. But it's also of a niche in the genre that is incredibly and utterly unpopular here on a system that is struggling to sell games in general. There's a difference between selling a game like that on the PS2, with god knows how many millions of units in use currently, and the PSP... And even then, I wonder if they'd be that interested in games like Nocturne if they were completely first person dungeon crawlers still.

I'm not saying that that it was the main reason, because I have no problem accepting that it was some technical issue (that's happened before with other smaller companies)... but I find it very hard to think that it wouldn't sell more poorly than pretty much any other Megaten related title they've bothered with so far. I mean, just glancing at it can give you that impression. Sometimes certain things just aren't worth bothering with and I think Devil Summoner, as much as I personally would like to play that, would be a really big example of that.

You aren't the first person to make that comment to me in response to DS PSP. I have the Saturn version, and while it is quite a traditional rpg, it is more pleasant to look at than what screenshots may depict. In fact, one other person that had the same attitude as you regarding this title (if I recall correctly), imported the PSP version and has been quite impressed by it. Let us not forget that there is also a cool story present here as well. I would have liked to see what Atlus USA could have done with a translation.

I'm sorry but DS PSP would have been better than 90-100 percent of the rpgs released on PSP in the U.S. None of them have been that impressive graphically to this point, so you really can't use that as a reason why it shouldn't have been localized. Namco released all three of the LoH titles with completely butchered text. If Astonisha Story can be localized, DS should should have been.  I guarantee you DS would have easily sold better than, or at least on par with, Jewel Summoner. I also have a hard time believing it would have sold worse than the Devil Children titles for GBA. At least DS had a fanbase to build upon. Again, based on what I was told, it was purely a decision based on the technical issue.

It also would have been a nice way to help bridge a gap between those of us who want older Megaten titles, or at least titles that play like older SMT titles, and really haven't been too impressed with the last few releases, especially DDS 1&2 and DS KR.

As far as first person dungeon crawlers, don't dismiss them so easily. I believe Etrian Odyssey has been a mild success for Atlus despite some poor reviews. On several message boards quite a number of people have surfaced that miss that style of rpg and would like more. While a niche rpg on a system that isn't doing particularly well, at least DS offered something different from the typical medieval fantasy based crap with a cliched story.

edit*

Not to be a jerk, but the more I read that statement that I put in bold, the more irritated I get. I wonder if this is why we won't see some of the older titles here. I see the way the SRW community has come together to attempt to show Atlus their support for a localization of SRT OG PS2, and I get a little jealous.

The Megami Tensei community coming together and not getting into a huge flame war = the end of the world.
