Sega Reaffirms Yakuza 0 and Persona 5 are PlayStation Exclusives, Will Never Get PC, Xbox, or Switch Ports

Console exclusives have typically been a very polarizing subject, especially when it comes to third parties keeping a game or series only on one hardware manufacturer’s system, or in this case systems.

Fans have been speculating whether or not Yakuza 0 and Persona 5 would be getting non-PlayStation ports, and it seems like the rumor mill has gotten too hot lately as Sega / Atlus PR has stepped in to squash them.

Atlus USA PR manager John Hardin flatly pointed out that Yakuza 0 will only release for PlayStation 4, while Persona 5 will only release for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. This comes after fans questioned the “PS4 CONSOLE EXCLUSIVE” label on Yakuza 0’s box art, while Persona 5’s box art was missing this label.

For reference, sometimes games have been touted as “PS4 CONSOLE EXCLUSIVE” while also getting a PC release. When pressed further by a fan making a joke, Hardin also said: “I get it, people want to hold out hope that it comes to their platform of choice. But…it’s just a box label.”

To be clear, the box label having “PLAYSTATION 4 EXCLUSIVE” or “PS4 CONSOLE EXCLUSIVE” are entirely up to Sony, and not Sega or Atlus, as Hardin also pointed out in his responses.

Yakuza 0 is launching in North America and Europe for PS4 on January 24th, while Persona 5 is launching on April 4th for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

    Riddle me this. How does the number of games that only PS4 has compares to the number of games it does not have? I think that one of this numbers is far larger than the other.

    One interesting bit of information here is that Sony decides which games get the label of “Only on PlayStation”. I guess they can distance themselves from crap releases and boast about the good games that are exclusives.

    Between Sega letting Atlus do all their stupid shit and Disney letting Marvel run their comics division in the ground, it makes me think that parent companies letting their acquisitions run wild is a bad idea.

    Yes, actually. The first Persona released on PC to be precise. And on a side note, Yakuza 1&2 remasters were made for the Wii U as well. Japan only, of course. So it’s not completely unreasonable to expect to see these games outside of Sony hardware.

    Way misinterpreted pal. I mean it’s still on a Sony platform so asking for it to be also on another Sony platform makes sense.

    That you have to have some ancient tech to play any of the earlier games. And that you can’t really buy them in stores.
    That they aren’t available anymore. Except, you know, on PC, but that’s illegal.

    To be fair, porting games isn’t a simple copy and paste operation. Like translations, it takes work and a whole lot of money. If you refuse the options you have, then you get nothing, because you choose to have nothing.

    > For someone it’s THE Yakuza, for me it’s “Meh: The Yet Another Crime Sandbox Game I Hardly Want To Know Anything About”.

    So you admit you don’t know anything about it but say that it can’t possibly be any good? Maybe if you gave a shit about games rather than ranting about “console-specific hugboxes”, Sega may be more inclined to cater to you.

    The Yakuza series is phenomenal, incidentally. If I could pick one game series that deserves more recognition than it gets, Yakuza would top the list. I only played it for the first time last year, when Yakuza 5 was on PS Plus in August, and it quickly edged out Dark Souls as my favourite game of the last console generation. It’s that good.

    I might be good. Just like *pfft* Mafia 3 or something.
    But the chances of it being “that good” are negligibly low. Most of the much lauded console exclusives I know are kinda “meh” and crime sandboxes are somewhat dumb in general. I don’t feel that I have really lost something. It takes more than “Hey, somewhere there’s a one game you’re not getting!” to get me invested.
    Like I have said, if it was really that good, it would receive a wider release. Exceptions are rare. And from where I stand, a game or two hardly makes a difference.

    Once #FE incorporates dating elements, Persona won’t be able to compete.

    I could see #FE games and mainline FE games seizing the entire waifu market. Not only are these actually fun games, unlike the Playstation exclusive Persona games, they have much more personality and unique elements that offer more room to grow. By that point Atlus will have no choice but to make Persona Nintendo exclusive.

    At this point I imagine the only thing keeping Persona 5 on Playstation is their contract with Sony. They must be desperate to leave them behind.

    The only Japanese company to really bother doing that is Square Enix, and even then they’re still missing a big chunk of their library, so I don’t know where you’re getting the idea its a problem with Atlus.

    The entire reason SEGA Sammy doesn’t interfere with Atlus, and the reason they were bought in the first place, was specifically because they’re good at what they do and were operating smoothly on their own.

    In other words, the parent company is satisfied with how things are, and aren’t trying to fix what isn’t broke, which is a good thing. Parent companies can just as easily screw things up.

    Divine Hybrid Master Race right here; PS, PC and Nintendo, sorry Xbox but I can get your exclusives on PC.

    First off, shame on you (PC and Nintendo only fans) for thinking you’ll get these two games on the upcoming NS and the ever evolving PC. I don’t get how a PC only gamer can afford to buy a new part that releases in 2 or 3 yrs, have a huge amount of games (shoutout to them Steam Sales) and yet somehow can’t afford a PS system to play the wonderful exclusives on there. I get it, true 1080p or 4k, 60fps, it’s hard to go back for ya but begging for ports or starting petitions won’t change a damn thing unless these companies (Sony, MS and Nintendo) give up on manufacturing consoles and instead bring a PS Store/XBL/eShop client to PC which I have some doubts on that but would be great. Nothing wrong with owning another platform, you can always go back to the one you prefer.

    He’s most likely in a place to say that about persona 5, but I don’t necessarily know if I’d take his comments on yakuza 0 as the word of god. Traditionally Sega has had a company called Inbound Games(Established by Osamu Shibamiya, former sega producer) handle the Yakuza games and given that they’ve continued to contract out titles to them long since they bought atlus(including yakuza 5 last year), I have no real reason to believe atlus is working on yakuza 0.

    It’s almost as if they learned nothing from the Dark Souls franchise.
    For good of bad, they made the big jump to a “AAA title” thanks to the PC release greatly amplifying their fanbase. Of course, there’s still Bloodborne, but From generally did well (at least, from a commercial standpoint) by making the jump to PCs.with this particular series.

    I hope Sega reconsiders their position.

    Paying a few hundred dollars to play a handful of games is ridiculous, that’s why. And consoles are detrimental in that not all games are preserved, nor are they capable of running better than they do. How are you going to play Persona 5 years down the line? Your PS4 won’t last forever. There’s no guarantee it or the majority of the PS4 library will get dumb little compatibility updates that basically force you to pay again for games you already own. And then you have your silly little Pro updates, which are not available for every game out there.

    How does it feel knowing you just gave Sony and Microsoft the okay to put out mid-generation console upgrades? Still paying for online play? Suddenly making those water textures look however you want them seems more appealing, doesn’t it?

    With PC, if I want to play Witcher 3 10, 15, or 20 years from now, I know I’ll be able to do it with a few mouse clicks. Every setting will be maxed out, with 8K or whatever resolution will be the best by then, not locked down at a pitiful 30FPS. Oh, and mods (where available).

    Preservation. Performance. Customization. These are just a few aspects that make game consoles outdated.
