That mentality has aided me in my descent into insanity. It began with me putting Persona 4 aside in lieu of other games, due to its length and my addictive completionist nature, and then I awoke to being entangled by my immense RPG backlog. Now, I think I’m going to disregard my other games and just dedicated my last 4 weeks of holiday to Persona 4…maybe.
Actually I amend my origional comment, ~40% of PS4 owners never owned a PS3. You do know that your statistic does not matter. It dosen’t matter because of two factors: first you are disregarding the total sales of Persona games which are very low, less then ~1 million, and the second being that maybe the JRPG loving individuals that made the Lost Odyssey, The Last story, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Blue Dragon sell well have mostly moved to PS4.
Considering those two factors, and assuming not all of those individuals moved to the PS4 currently, Atlus would experience a sales increase between 20% to 40% in volume sold to consumer. For Atlus that would be a smart move.
It’s not a huge waste of money when over 1/3 of the PS4 audience is composed of those who have not owned a PS3.
Atlus is not in the business of selling PS4s, they are in the business of selling their game to the largest audience. They are also a relatively small company. As such, if they have budget constraints, it would be to their advantage to ship on PS3 first and then once they have enough money to Port Persona 5 to the PS4. For them it would not be "dumb."
I was going to post a mild defense of Square Enix, but when I heard about how they dealt with the FFXV delay, All I could say is that your comment is not passionate enough. They seem to lack respect for their consumers.
Yes, they do sell in Japan, but they have been severly waning as of late.
Well, if you don’t understand how science works, or understand what correlation is, then sure.
All you’ve done is change the goal post, for your argument. The origional is about general perception, and your argument further was working off of an ill defined usage of explatives, does it include oaths, swearing, cursing. there are 14 different types of expletives. Few of which are found in American.
These vague elments make it difficult to say always, but it does give enough to say mostly given that all categories, aside from religious, classical divinities, animals plants products and future life categories are associated with negative emotive expressions. In either case your origional argument is void, due to its bases being proven invalid.

Yeah and sorry for the double post.
Journalists, well at least professional journalists, have a code of ethics that controls their behavior, and as such they are always in some way censoring themselves. This is part of their code. The use of profanity, given the medium, probably falls under the lurid category of curiosity that ought not to be catered to.
It is not an opinion of his, it is a common assumption and a field of study. Curse words and oaths are generated from a different portion of the brain, and are considered to be emotive, and mostly emotive of negative feelings. As such bagel is not incorrect in making this correlation, whereas your ignorance of the subject matter is saddening, especially boldly claming that “nothing whatsoever” backs up his initial claim.
On final note, your “evidence” is anecdotal, but If you do some research and look into the matter you will see that most of you asertions are not supported by scientific research.

Some words are “bad” because we give them a “bad” meaning, and we associate a “bad” idea with them, so it is not the word that is the problem, but the meaning that we associated with that word. this is commonly referred to as abstract thought.
Also just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be a contraversial topic.
Really am liking the sprite-work, reminds me of the later Mega Man X games and the Mega Man Zero series. Think I’m going to clean the dust off the 2DS, now.
Fairies just saying that he doesn’t find himself/herself captivated by Mighty No.9’s aesthetic, and current gamplay reveals, but this game has them excited. Cool them jetz eabarth.
Spread the Knowledge, man! If I could recommend this comment more I would.
