So! Why should you consider signing up for the Atlus site as opposed to something tried and true, like Gaia Online or something? Well, here's what Atlus says:
Atlus Online will emerge as an extremely user-focused destination that is fully accessible to each and every one of its members. From amazing games to play to exciting contests, exceptional content and great community interaction, we are convinced that Atlus Online will be a premiere interactive entertainment destination for online gamers and anime fans alike.
And on the website itself it says...
Why are we different?
Well, for starters, every one of us is a gamer, and our Community Managers will listen and interact with you on a level that has not been seen before. In fact, your daily input will shape what Atlus Online looks and feels like over time. Every member can make a difference because before we started on the portal, our team collectively made the decision that Atlus Online would be YOUR site, not ours.
I admit, I'm more interested in something put together by the Persona creators. How about you?
