It's a good game, but I seriously dislike that it's the only region-locked PS3 game in the world. Sets a dangerous precedent.

If you're buying this on the 360 side, be mindful of the fact that the community has dried up and ceased to exist. Otherwise if you're in for the story or whatever, then $20 sounds about right.

There was a good reason though. Remember the game came out only like 2 weeks after it was out in Japan; it was either region lock it or wait a few months to release it here. Games cost much more in Japan then they do here and P4 Arena came with both audio tracks. Just like CAGs like to get deals on games there are Japanese gamers who like to import games in other regions rather than buy them in Japan due to the price difference.

I'm not sure that I would characterize enforcement of regional price differences as a good reason for region locking.

Isn't GS selling Kindle gift cards now? Use your credit for the Kindle cards and use that to get it.

Ugh, I have been waiting for this to drop to around here for a while now. But now that it has, I feel like waiting some more. I've picked up too many games recently.
The fighting game fan in me may yet win out though, so we'll see if I pick it up now or not.

Proof that Arc systems games are too complicated for casual players. They find out its hard then trade it in hence the price drop. Blazblue is the same and Guilty Gear has to many options for fight styles for your average player who isn't willing to put time and effort into learning about proration or practice combos.

I played GG, BB, and P4A and like them all.

I'm in the same predicament. Stay strong-willed and cheap. I think this game will be cheaper eventually, and if not it'll be back at the same price. I'm trying so hard to be a cheap ass gamer through these holidays and with my huge backlog of games.

I'm still working on Persona 4 Golden, and I heard that Atlus games don't drop in price too often so should I get this now or wait for a lower price down the road?

I was reading up on this. The XBOX 360 version looks a little crisper, but the online community seems to be dead on there, so choose your poison. PS3 version almost looks exactly the same.

Most stores are not selling them. At least not yet. For now, they only carry enough to give to people who purchase a Kindle.
