For anyone who might be interested, XSEED Games now has an online store.

Hey, they're selling Rune Factory: Frontier for $25. It's impossible to find new anywhere else for less than $50. Been wanting that one for a while, so I jumped on it. Thanks, Kotomine :)

If you can find them used at Gamestop they are both under $10, one might be $5.

I've been thinking of getting Persona 3 portable. Amazon seeks to have it for 24.99. Is that a good price? Also is that a good entry for a first time Persona player?

It's a good entry, probably the best entry as persona 1/2 are enjoyable, but also games from a different era.
Tt's a decent price for the game, the digital download was onsale for $20 at one point, but the physical edition most likely will eventually be sold out and the price will shoot back up.

Persona 3 is probably my favorite of the Persona games (actually, probably of the SMT games as a whole), so I'd say it's a good entry point. I played through it on the PS2, and grabbed the PSP version right when it came out. Just be prepared for a commitment -- my PS2 playthrough clocked in at over 100 hours (and I only played the main game, haven't gotten to the FES expansion yet -- I needed a break! :lol:).

As far as the price goes, I've seen it a bit cheaper, but it's not bad. I'm not sure how hard to find it's getting to be at this point (haven't really been following it since I got it at release), but it might not be a bad idea to grab it while you can.

I've seen lots of very good PSP bootlegs from Hong Kong with Y Folds and full cover inserts and instructions. The only way to really tell is to open it and look at the disc itself sometimes.

Dang, I'm not sure if I have the time to drop into a game that long. I was wondering if this would be likely to go on sale during Black Friday or not but it it's getting hard to find maybe I should jump on it.

I'm hoping to get that Persona 4 remake for PS Vita. When is the fighting game supposed to see home release?

One good thing about it is that you can pick it up and play it in reasonably short bursts. So I clocked over 100 hours, but it was over the course of something like 8 months. There's enough of a storyline to keep it interesting, but it's not so deep that you'll forget what's going on if you don't play it every day.

I wouldn't count on a Black Friday deal simply because even though it's not rare yet, it's not all that common at this point either. If we see a BF deal on a Persona title, I'd expect it to be on Persona 2.

Last I heard was next summer for Japan, which would mean probably fall (or possibly spring 2013) here?

I picked up Persona 3 FES on Amazon's Black Friday sale for $16 in 2008, back when they were trying to make way for the PS3. It really is an awesome game. I let my girlfriend's teenage brothers borrow it, and they've managed to play it around 180 hours without getting to the FES part. Ragnorok64, I guess you have two high recommendations for it now. ;)

I believe Amazon did sell a special bundle of the P3 FES game in the older P3 package with artbook and soundtrack CD. It was during the holiday season a few years ago.

Oops. Turns out it's me who doesn't know what I'm talking about. :dunce:
Is the only way you can tell the two versions apart by checking the spine where the game is? Is the FES artbook and soundtrack different from the original?

AFAIK there is no artbook and soundtrack for FES (in North America). They basically took everthing from the original and replaced the game with the FES version.

Not sure if they're all like this but the outer box on my original has details about the game/contents on the back and the FES version has an ad for Persona 4/Atlus insider.

Fyi, that same game is considered a clearance item at Sears right now. It's unlikely that your local series has it, but you can purchase it for 19.97 if you happen to find one there.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:
