The other gift is a Persona 4 T-shirt.
Oh, man! I'd take that over the syringe! (Which I'm guessing are leftovers from their New Blood pre-orders on their site)

You said you get that later? They're doing two?

So, I looked at my school academic calender to see when this falls.

December 8-12 Final examinations

And....I graduate from college this fall.

DECISIONS!

thats pretty early.

who would have guessed?
A lot of us, actually. The time to strike with further PS2 releases is starting to get smaller, to a point where major titles are starting to slip into "now or never" territory. I'm pretty sure it was top priority for Atlus to get this to the U.S. in time for the upcoming holiday season, because while the PS2 should have at least one more good Christmas, who knows how things will look next year.

FUCK.
YEEAAAAAAAAAAH.

It will be a good Christmas this year after all! Between Yakuza 2 and Persona 4, I don't really need anything but my good ol' PS2 this year. <3

Me! I was sure we'd get it this year! :D I'm glad my hunch was correct :D (There's always the presence of slight doubt, though).

Anyway, I'm freakin' excited as hell that it's coming! FINALLY :D

See, on the other hand, it's nice to hear that Atlus actually though about us folks that wear S or M t-shirts.

im not complaining, but i hope they wont rush the translation and everything else with it.



oh, that box-art is good, but please drop the orange border, its ugly and unnecessary.

This doesn't have the social link stuff, right? I'm enjoying the dungeon stuff and battle system but the other aspects of P3 are putting me off.

PLEEEEEEASE Atlus... keep the Japanese cover art. I love you guys, but really, no need for the goofy SMT logo you're using, and P3 got enough attention that you don't need to make another attention-grabbing cover.

T-shirt: Back should have been front, back should have been blank.

Oh, and $39.99? Is that official?

That is just the JP box with US text on it; I don't think that is anywhere near the final design.
That's a shame. I forgave FES for the lousy boxart because of the $20 thing. NOT THIS TIME, ATLUS.

Atlus is just shitting over Square when it comes to translation time these days. This is SO awesome.:D
Or are they? Persona 4 was only announced about three months ago and comes out in Japan next week. There's no telling how long they've been working on it.

Don't be surprised if this slips into next year. Dec 9th seems to be an 'educated guess... a guesstimate', as the included screenshots aren't even in English, and are in fact the same screens submitted to JP publications.
