Why are people so offended with Bestbuy doing this? If you've received this for free with pre-order, then that means you've got this without having to pay $10. Shouldn't you be more mad if they start to give this out for FREE? Then that means you didn't receive anything of value for pre-ordering.

BTW, i saw the thread made in ATLUS Forum was created by Gargus. Isn't he supposed to win some kinda Villain of the year here sometime ago?

It's a hori screen cover, just place it on mine is nice, no scratches or bubbles and i didn't need anything to place it on. On a side note I don't mind them selling them as I had reward zone certificates, so it was only 3 bucks or so as i had 2 left on a gift card.

Better than some of the fellow cags on here charging 22 shipped for one. And yes there is a user on here doing that.

It just seems shady to me. As if they decided just to hold onto them and sell them for extra profit.

I guess everyone just wants to be sure Best Buy isnt going behind Atlus's back or whatever, because if that is the case its pretty screwed up.

Beat me to it. Yeah, Gargus was something of a Grumpy Gus: if I remember correctly he was banned from posting; its possible that he saw this thread here while lurking and then posted in the Atlus forums.

Well if the hypothetical you mentioned earlier was to be true, and BB did cut a deal with ATLUS, I of course would have no problem with this what so ever. Otherwise I've made my point pretty clear. If Best Buy were to give these out for free w/ purchase of P4G, I'd be fine with that too. In the end, it would all go to supporting the developer, ATLUS. Who isn't even that big of a developer to begin with.

Assuming Best Buy is doing this without any permission from ATLUS, you don't see anything wrong in BB selling a pre-order skin, one that clearly states "NOT FOR SALE", and in which they had absolutely no hand in producing, for 25% of the games retail value?

I agree it's not right, but just saying that if they were really crooked there are people more so. And besides, not like Best buy or any other retailer always plays fair.

Has anyone actually tried to buy one? If I remember correctly, the Assassin's Creed III and Prototype 2 steelbooks were both listed for sale on BB's website, but when you tried to buy them without ALSO preordering the game, your order would be cancelled. I don't know why Best Buy gave them their own listings in the first place (maybe it has something to do with how they process physical bonus items), but the point is that they were cancelled.

This sounds like the exact same thing, especially since they note multiple times in the listing that it is a gift with preorder. It's possibly just a lingering preorder item that BB forgot to remove after P4G came out.

That's the only reason I can see anyone here being mad .if anyone here thinks best buy is that stupid to sell any item without the manufactors agreement are missing a few marbles. They know this would be a lawsuit without some kind of agreement so get over it you won't be able to gouge again until when/if they go out of stock

This. Bestbuy and other retailers sell extra physical pre-order bonuses all the time.

This actually crossed my mind as well, I just didn't say it. :)

That and now they can't sell their own for this price or more.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

How likely would I get a skin if I bought Persona 4 from Best Buy or Amazon? Best Buy still has it in the Features.

$10 for a skin.... not sure but isn't that asking quite a lot just for a damn skin? >.<
I already ordered the game w/skin on NewEgg so I can put it on my Vita but I wanna buy another just to keep it, but $10 seems a lot >.<

Needing a screen protector, I'd probably order this if I didn't think it looks kind of wonky on the white Vitas. Gonna look for the clear Hori skin instead but I'll be damned if I didn't admit that I first checked to see what people were spending on these over on eBay.

PS: Coincidentally, searching for a Vita skin on BestBuy.com was how I stumbled on this in the first place. Went ahead and downloaded the wallpapers, though.

I ordered one yesterdat morning and 2 hours later I got the email that it shipped. I didn't realize Amazon was still sending these out with the game. I got my Amazon copy that same afternoon with the skin. Oh well, guess I have an extra now.

So these have a part that covers the screen? I was hoping they were just to cover the face of the Vita.

Doesn't look too bad on the white vita. Someone posted a picture with it on a white vita.

My only annoyance is when I went to pickup up my preorder at GameStop the store I preordered at didn't get them at all with the game. At least I can get one from Best Buy now.

Included with the skin is a download code for a wallpaper to match the skin. Nothing's on that screen.

Untrue. It does cover the screen. It isn't just a skin, but a full front cover to protect the screen as well.



I just applied mine. Looks flawless, love it. Now to just get the wallpapers...

Does anyone here have photoshop and access to the P4G skin wallpapers? I used to have PS but no longer and I cannot seem to get the website with the wallpapers to load, keeps timing out. If you can assist me, please PM me.
