Why wasn't Persona 4 Golden released on the PSP?

I'm sure that console would have been able to handle it, and it would have sold a lot more because of the PSP's massive install base. Did Sony make a deal with Atlus to release it on the Vita?

Atlus said that they did not want to cut anything out of the P4 port which is why they jumped on the Vita when they had the chance.
Hmmm, a downgraded PSP port of P4..

I didn't expect Kweensta to make such a stupid topic. I hope this is trolling.

At least ask why it wasn't on PS3 or something.

PSP could handle P3, but the problem was that it was too big so they didn't include 3D backgrounds and cutscenes. The game probably would have spanned several UMDs like FF type-0 if they ported everything from the PS2 version.
The same would have happened to P4, so I'm glad they released it on Vita instead of butchering it on PSP just to fit it on 1 UMD.
