Hmm... I already have J-Stars on PS3, though. Are there any noticeable reasons to upgrade to the PS4 version, or is it essentially the same on both consoles?

Between this and the Tomb Raider sale... Might nab DBXeno and Tomb Raider for $60 total.

I bought my nephew who loves Dragonball a PS4, so Xenoverse seems perfect.

Xenoverse was good, right?

Saw the deal on cag this morning and nabbed a copy of One Piece. Almost purchased J-Stars, but read that it wasn't a good game.

One Piece shows in stock for me from Amazon.

Yup! Loads of fun. Was the first Dragon Ball game I bought day one since 2009. Still has a strong online community too.

I'm just going to offer a contrary opinion to the OP's. I don't think it's worth it at that price. Honestly, and without any hyperbole, I wouldn't play it if you gave it to me for free. I thought it was an awful game.
Does J-Stars have a local versus mode?
Local play, bleugh.

Not like I've really been keeping track, but I can't remember the last time an Omega Force game went for that low. I recall them usually maintaining their price, at least among the major retailers.

omg, I JUST spent about $50 last week on an used copy of PW3 as part of a b2g1 free deal.

Not really anime, but I saw Onechanbara Z2 Chaos with the day one stuff (OST, artbook, DLC) for $20 as well. I wonder if there's some $20 PS4 game deal going on.

Eh, as a casual fan of anime games and manga in general, I was super hyped for Jstars and actually imported the PS3 version when it came out ages ago before there was the US announcement.

It isn't that bad, surely fun at $20. It's fun charging up to whatever powered up form your character has, and dashing around shooting flashy signature moves off.

It's like an extremely middling quality Smash bros.

Still enjoyable.

Considering one could get J-Stars Vs+ for $18 ($16 with the promo code) during PSN's Black Friday flash sale, a drop might be coming soon-ish.

All three games dropped drop to $40 (retail) recently, so I don't think we'll see another one for a few months. Only noticed because of price changes at work.
