Atlus Stops Undersupplying PSP Games

Illustration for article titled Atlus Stops Undersupplying PSP Games

It's not the fact that Atlus has released a selection of its best PSP games in downloadable form on the PlayStation Network, but how they announce said release: no more purposefully undersupplying retail channels!

Oh the Atlus PR team has fun. Just look at the title to their press release: "ATLUS ENDS YEARS OF ALLEGEDLY NOT PRINTING ENOUGH COPIES OF GAMES AND THEN LAUGHING AT EMPTY-HANDED CUSTOMERS, RELEASES DIGITAL DOWNLOAD VERSIONS OF PSP SYSTEM CLASSICS VIA PlayStation NETWORK." This is how they announce the addition of Crimson Gem Saga, Hammerin' Hero, Yggdra Union, Steambot Chronicles Battle Tournament, R-Type Command, and Riviera: The Promised Land to the PlayStation Network.

Wait - it gets better.

"We've finally reached a point where, according to our physicians, any further laughing at our masterfully executed plan of never making enough copies of our games for everyone poses risks to our health," admitted Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. "In order to prevent illness, and because, hey, sometimes you just want to change things up, we're very pleased to offer PSP system classics via digital download. It may mean that we'll have to shut down our numerous online auction accounts, as we won't be able to hoard large quantities of our hard-to-find games and then slowly trickle them out at obscenely high prices anymore, but the end result will be better for everyone."


I knew that JabbariBay eBay handle sounded familiar...

I love Atlus' attitude towards games. They always seem to publish what they are into regardless of how hardcore and they seem to keep their forecasts low. It's a nice departure from other companies that try to cater to a market and then saturate sell in in the hopes that exposure equals higher sales. Keep on rockin' Atlus! #atlus
