Not by any stretch a newegg apologist, but my experience has always been that newegg preorders are on my doorstep by Thursday/Friday of release week (with them usually shipping Monday afternoon).



If I didn't know better, I'd think Katamari Damacy got a new sequel. That thing is exciting!


wonder with thanksgiving when i get it

Just got an email early this morning from Amazon saying that the new estimated delivery for my Solid Gold edition is December 19th. Anyone else get this?

Yup, just talked with Amazon support and the game is backordered till that date. So either they are getting a game shipment late or we are getting orders cancelled.

My status just got changed to "Delivery estimate: We need a little more time to provide you with a good estimate. We'll notify you via e-mail as soon as we have an estimated delivery date."

Not helping my hopes at all.

I got my Solid Gold copy from Amazon today. I pre-ordered that thing the second it was made available. I thought 70 bucks was a bit steep for the Solid Gold version, but the extras are actually really nice. The hard cover and case are pretty sweet, very welcomed in fact. The stickers are whatever, but they are pretty nice quality. I'm quite happy with the purchase, especially since it came in pristine condition and not crushed.

I was wondering if Gamestop stores were shorted. This morning I checked around major cities including New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago using the stock checker, and at most there were only 3 or 4 stores within a 100 mile radius of these cities with any in stock.

Was going to attempt to do this with my Wii U except put heavy rocks in the box trying to pull an Indiana Jones.

The slow start in P3 and P4 are hard to get through...I hope P5 addresses this.

I know once I finally get to the point where I can do what I want, when I want in the game, it will be great!

Question for experienced Persona players:

I've never played any game in the series. Is there any reason whatsoever not to just start right off with P4? Will I be better off in any way by playing the others first?

P4 is a great place to start. Though it does take place in the same reality as P3 and there are some very minor crossovers, there's nothing you need to know about the story or characters that you won't get in P4.

The gameplay is extremely similar between P3 and P4, with P4 making some small but significant improvements. If you love P4 then you won't have any problem going back to P3 and loving that too.

I was pleasantly suprised to get an email out of the blue from Amazon today with a $5 credit apologizing for not getting me the Solid Gold edition on the due date last month (it came the following Monday). In other news, I love Amazon.

This. I've put more than 40 hours in already and it's only been a little over 2 weeks since I got the game. That's on top of my school year being hectic and just ending lol. It was my saving grace from going fucking insane when I was trapped at the hospital for five hours the other day.

I have the persona 4 for pspvita and now will be getting a pspvita for Christmas.

I was going to get a Hori screen protector.

http://www.bestbuy.c...d=1218581191692

Since I have the items from the premium edition. is the persona 4 golden protective skin like a screen protector is it more like a decal thing that decorates the system?

Should I put hori screen protector on it then this?

Was it hard to apply? I've done the hori screen protectors on my dsi, and 3ds no issue coarse a bit nerve wrecked from being careful..

I'm excited to play persona 4 golden played the ps2 one and beaten it month ago, but still excited to revisit the game.

The Persona skin is actually a screen protector that covers the front of the Vita entirely.

Well I'm 12 hours into the game, enjoying it so far. The first boss battle kinda pissed me off because I thought surely they would give you more SP items during battles. And then
Spoiler


From there on out I'm trying to make sure I grind a bit when I visit the castle. Still trying to decide if I want to try and get as many trophies now as I can, or just enjoy the story and see if I'm interested in a second playthrough.

I'm over 30 hours in and I'm loving the game. I'm having a hard time with the social links. Too many girl problems. ;)
