Devil summoner and Persona are spinoffs. The differences are mostly gameplay. What's the difference between NSMB2 and Luigi mansion?

Shin Megami Tensei is the "main" series. The games in it are I, II, If...,III (Nocturne), Strange Journey, and IV.

Devil Summoner is a series that started out on Saturn. It's a spinoff of SMT, and the one for 3DS (Soul Hackers) is the second game in the series.

Persona is yet another spinoff series, it started on PS1. The first game has some connections to SMT If..., but for the most part, it's its own separate series.
