Hopefully this isn't a repost but it's hard to tell when the site is currently in such a FUBAR'd state.  Stumbled across this while browsing fightsticks.  Persona 4 is $19.99 at Amazon but it's for PS3 only, the 360 version is still $53.84.  The few places that still have it new are looking like $30 mostly (including PSN) but that's still $10 cheaper than anywhere else I can find it.

I wonder what's with the huge price difference between platforms.  I was hoping to pick it up cheap for the 360.

Is there a difference between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions? If not I may just pick this up.

Does anybody know if it includes the OST from Amazon? I'd probably bite for this even though it's not Golden. They should really release that on PS3...

It's been a while, but the PS3 community was more lively, but maybe not anymore. The 360 version looks a little cleaner. Pick your poison, but I'd opt for the 360 version. We are nearing the end of a generation, so the community won't really matter much because people will start migrating to the new systems, and the game was never nearly as big as SF IV or Blazblue.

Seriously, I make a new topic and suddenly I can't post for 26 minutes?!?  So hate this "upgrade"...  Anyway, I really don't know to both questions but Newegg is the same big gap as well (though their 360 version has a CD with it I guess).  The only thing I can find are that the graphics are marginally different (see the link below).  Gameplay and content seem to be identical though and what minor graphical differences exist I still think it looks fine on PS3 and certainly not $30 better for 360.  Actually the more I look at the site I linked below the more I think the PS3 looks better, the color's a little less saturated by everything's far sharper and you can pick the details out far better.

Um, just to be clear that while the story in Arena is a continuation of the story in Persona 4 that it's a fighting game not a JRPG.  I do agree though that they need to release Persona 4 or Golden for PS3 though.

From what I remember there is not a huge difference between the Xbox and ps3 versions. I know at launch the net code on the Xbox version was subpar but that may have been improved via patch at some point. I went with the ps3 version because of the net code issue with the Xbox version and also because I heard the community on the ps3 was better.

Regardless, this is a great fighter on either platform and one of my favorite fighters period. Well worth $20 if you play online or have a steady group of friends to play with. The story mode is also fun if you like the persona universe.

The fifth pic down with the guy sitting in the background (completely absent from PS3 version) looks much more blurry on PS3. Anyways, all of these games (BlazBlue, Persona 4) are made on the same engine, and they all look more 'blurry' on the PS3 than my 360 versions.

 

I agree, the 360 version is not $30 better. Right now, I would opt for the PS3 one.

You're talking about the cropped screens and the backgrounds right?  I can see that, it's almost like there's a filter applied/missing from one of the versions with the slight color shift and that.  Still, I think the non-cropped screens still look perfectly good (especially with how fast their games move).  Just realized I have the full game trial downloaded on my system and never played it so I'm gonna go fire that up and see what I think.

Get it on PS3 if you have any plans to play against people - you'll have a way easier time finding matches.

Man, I just can't decide.  On the one hand the game is gorgeous and just so well put together; on the other it's really not the kind of fighting game I really get into.  It's the problem I've always had with their fighting games whether it's been Guilty Gear or Blazblue, the controls and style just don't work for me.

Thanks OP, even though I prefer gaming on the 360 I couldn't justify the $30 extra so I snagged the PS3 version. Is there a mandatory install for the PS3? I'm running low on space.

This really needs to happen for the 360. I'm amazed at such a gap in price. My PS3 only plays movies nowadays where as my community of buddies are on the 360. I heard Frys has it for $20 but I don't know if it's new or used and you can't order it online. -_-. I guess I'll just have to still wait!

I completely agree & I love fighting games! Bought a pre-owned copy from GS awhile ago when it was on sale but ultimately, I returned it. Just not feeling the controls & style although that's a good price for the game if you like GG & BB.

I ended up ordering it, it's just so beautiful that it makes me want to try and get OK with it.

 

Also, I just realized that you're over on SRK and started the Injustice stick thread that I was just waffling in about modding it yesterday.

Your input was what sealed my ordering the Madcatz Soul Calibur stick, now I'm just got to come up with a them to make it less hideous,  Now I've just got to hope that the local Gamestop will let me return the Injustice one in person; paying $20 (a fifth of what it cost) to ship it back is not an appealing prospect.

Glad I could help out! The Injustice stick isn't too bad but for the price ($90 plus tax after deducting $60 for the actual game), there are much better arcade sticks in the same price range. Only way I'd buy it @ $90 (plus tax) is if I know for sure I can sell the DLC on eBay for at least $25 because ~$75 is the most I'd pay for that stick & that's on a good day, LOL! As long as you haven't opened the retail box then I'm pretty sure you can return it at a local Gamestop. I know people return online purchases of pre-owned games locally. If you've already opened it then not sure if they'll allow that since it's up to the manager's discretion.

Yeah, when I ordered it I was counting on trading the copy of the game I already have to BBY for about $30 and considering it a $70 stick. I wasn't sure if they would charge me return shipping and concerned about returning it to a local store because it does say manager's discretion and if I was a Gamestop manager I wouldn't touch a return like that with a stick knowing it's just going to sit in my store and cost me.  Thankfully Gamestop took care of all these concerns for me when they somehow shipped me a Hori Real Arcade Pro VX SA for 360 instead, wrong product and wrong system.  Kind of amazed that I would be so fortunate as to have them screw the pooch and be at fault for my return.

I wonder if all these price drops that go up before E3 are a sign of things to come. 

 

I still think there'll be a sequel to this. Or maybe I'm just hoping for one.

I'm hoping so.  At least a "Super" edition seems fairly likely since GG and BB have gotten them and P4A outsold both if I recall right, plus having it in EVO helps those chances and keeps it more visible.

The Ultimate bundle with the extra colors and the (ever so stupid) glasses DLC was still $28 with the Plus discount and the vanilla is currenly $30 on PSN.
