Persona 4 Arena w/CD for 49.99 after a promo code.

The email is in their weekly deal ad, so I think it's this entire week. Doesn't really say a specific end date. Probably until next monday.

360:
Code: EMCNBNC235

http://www.newegg.co...-74120014-L024A

PS3:
Code: EMCNBNC236

http://www.newegg.co...-79225053-L024B

Lastly, the title does say "w/CD". I believe they mean the preorder bonus soundtrack.

Ugh. As someone who is a big fan of the Persona games but not really a fan of fighting games, I've been seriously torn on whether I want this or not.

I just watched the gametrailers review and the story mode does take its status as direct sequel seriously it seems. Still, I can't bring myself to pay more than $30 for a fighting game and even that is pushing it. Fighting games drop in price so quickly, so I'd say definitely get it but wait for price drops.

Ironically, I already got it for $50 due to the $10 pre order deals from a month or two ago. Guess it's win win for me either way. Getting my copy today hopefully!

I wonder if it's landing on the Vita in the not-so-near future, hmmm . Blazblue was an incredible experience on the go.

I wouldn't see why not, the Vita is slowly picking up here in Japan & NA. I guess they want to see how well it sells on consoles first.

Just a heads-up for anyone thinking of getting P4A through Best Buy, I was able to price-match Fry's at 49.99 by calling the customer service line after I completed my in-store pick-up this morning. The total was still over $50, so I'm assuming the $10 credit is still coming my way. Figure it's the best option for anyone who missed out on random pre-order deals (e.g. Newegg) and has BB credit to burn.

Also can confirm that the soundtrack is included as well, which should mean that it's the typical Atlus first-run bonus. Glad to see that the talk of 11 exclusive retailers never really amounted to anything :)

Well, I actually heard people found copies without the soundtrack in a lesser known retailer (can't remember the name, but I read about it on GFAQS).

The game looks awesome, and well it has been getting great reviews across the board. As much as I want to buy it, it's an Arc System Works game. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but how many versions of BlazBlue are there now :lol:.

Well that kinda sucks. Read on some other sites that local game stores were receiving copies with the soundtrack, so I guess it might be random?

At least Best Buy has them. Was surprised to see they were missing from the official website while places like Overstock and Buy.com were mentioned instead.

I'm just going to wait for a price drop, like with what they did for Street Figther v Tekken and Mortal Kombat Komplete. My Bro and I need to save the money anyway (Agreed to split the costs)

I think first week sales were better in Japan than tekken 6 or street fighter 4. Should be pretty popular over there but I would expect a sharp drop off in sales

I hope sales are good. Got it today, only beat persona 3 and am playing through 2 on the vita now. I want to support Atlus for making so many good games, the good reviews should help. I would just say anyone buying final fantasy still please check out atlus games. All Square had to do this generation was a new real tactics and a 7 remake instead they have yet to produce a good game imo this generation outside of some eidos stuff like deus ex or the final fantasy fighting which was good admittedly. I would be less anti square if they showed any screenshots for the X remake, or a release date, or made a real tactics game in the last 15 years.

I'm a HUGE Persona fan. Got introduced with Persona 3 FES, love the series but i'm not much into fighters. I'm glad to hear they included a story mode. I'll definitely get it when it's $20.

As someone else mentioned, fighting games don't hold value and drop rapidly in price.

The game looks fun, but that $30 worth of launch day DLC stings and makes saving $10 on the actual game irrelevant.

The only DLC is the "hipster" glasses and different colors. The other DLC can be unlocked in game but it's for lazy people (replaces Rise's voice during battles I think). I was actually joking to my friend when I said "Oh, the DLC will probably be like 50 more colors even though we already have too many to begin with." And I laughed my ass off when I was actually right, wow.

I would prefer DLC characters over anything though. The current selection is something I can only see Japanese gamers buying to show off their "style" while murdering people online.

This is not a throw away game either guys! For those saying they are just waiting on Persona 5, this is probably Persona 4.5 due it to being two weeks after P4. The P3 characters in game also fit into the story as well. I was worried about spending $50 on it (Newegg) but I totally dug the game. I'm not very good at fighters and I still have a blast with it.

Also, it has this song.

This is an incredibly fun fighting game (I've only had it for a day but if it's consistently fun it might be one of the best fighters I've played, not that I'm an expert or have played tons of them though).

It's incredibly easy to get into, while at the same time having tons of little intricacies to learn (almost overwhelming, but that's only necessary to master the game, not exactly to start playing).

As well as the 13 player cast being great, usually in most fighting games I find one I like and stick to him/her, but in this one they all play really great.

For those waiting on a price drop, please note that if history says anything, it's that Arc Sys games get one price drop (to $39.99) about 2 - 3 months after release then stay at that price until the next game to come out. With the Blazblue series they released a game every... what? 6 months? It's highly doubtful that'll be the case with P4A, so you might need to wait a while.

Also, the story takes place 2 months after P4, not 2 weeks.

The CD is in it's own sleeve. I got the game from Gamestop (I know, I wasn't a CAG this one time) and they had it shrink wrapped with the game.

That's funny. I got blazblue CS at walmart for $20 well over a year ago. Ill wait for this to drop too. Because it will drop. Hopefully gamefly has a sale on it later this year.

When you say CS I take it you are talking about Continuum Shift, not Continuum Shift Extend, right? Because CS came out in 2010 then got the PSP port for CS2 (which was a free upgrade for the consoles) in 2011, that's when the game dropped prices since it was a "new version" of the game. I'm sure there have been a few stray deals, but for the most part, Arc Sys games have somehow defied traditional deal knowledge. I'm guessing it's because the publisher isn't expecting Capcom fighting game like sales.

Edit: Also, for those wondering, I've only really done 3 of the story modes (which in typical BB pattern, is incomplete) and I'm honestly not too impressed with the story so far. As for gameplay, it's obviously a lot like BB, so that may be a + or - depending on your preference. I'll be honest, Persona / BB fanboy goggles adds on to the game's enjoyment, but I honestly don't see this game outlasting the Capcom bigs (SFIV:AE, UMvC3)

Yeah I got it like three months before the CS2 updated. Well balance patch is a better word for it. Because you still had to pay $8 apiece for the 4 additional characters that were on the handheld version. Ill just wait for a nice drop on p4a even if I have to get it used.

FYI the CD only has 6 tracks. I think that's less than the Catherine CD.
