Recently Sony released a brand new video that detailed their upcoming games lineup for the PlayStation 4 hardware. Some of the games that were included in this video showcased labels that confirmed whether they are a PlayStation 4 exclusive or a PlayStation 4 ‘console’ exclusive. Both of these offered different meaning depending on their usage.
Since the video listed Persona 5 and Yakuza 0 as PlayStation Console exclusive, this resulted in some fans speculating that these games could also come to other platforms including the PC and upcoming Nintendo Switch.
Atlus PR, John Hardin has decided to shut down any speculations once and for all by confirming that these games aren’t coming to any other platforms. He stresses that the ‘PlayStation Console Exclusive’ label is used by Sony and has nothing to do with third parties.
Persona 5 platforms: PS3, PS4.
Yakuza 0 platforms: PS4.
No Switch. No PC. Idk about the box label, that's a Sony thing. pic.twitter.com/8R3Qj36deA

This is not the first time the Atlus PR has responded to fans questions regarding a potential port of Persona 5 to a different platform. Last time this happened, fans were asking for Persona 5 port to the PC or Xbox One and the response was negative.
Persona 5 and Yakuza 0 will be localized and published by Atlus. Yakuza 0 will be released on January 24th while Persona 5 will be released later in February.
