Persona 4: $30 At Amazon Today

Now you can do your own Endurance Run on the cheap.

The Persona 4 Endurance Run trundles inexorably toward its landmark hundredth episode, and Amazon has posted the game today as its daily video game deal, at $30. Not a bad price if you want to join in yourself on the further adventures of Mysterious Fox, Funky Student, Chie, and all the rest.


Note, you'll have to dust off your trusty PlayStation 2 to play this. Remember that thing? If you haven't played Persona 4 or seen the Endurance Run yet, here's what you've been missing.

  


Thanks for the tip, Steve!

Worth it

Edited by Hampe

Nice price. Too bad it's US only, it seems. On the other hand, I don't have a NTSC PS2 console so, what the heck.

Meh

Dang this is tempting. I literally just bought Persona 3 FES yesterday for 20 bucks (This is my first jrpg in a very long time, inspired to purchase by the endurance run).

Backwards compatible PS3's should be able to run Persona 4 btw, the Persona 3 FES copy i bought yesterday runs great on my PS3

Awesome news for those who don't have the game yet.  If you don't have it yet, better act fast.

Does it include a Vinny and Jeff special commentary disc?

Posted by Rinkalicous

The makers of Persona 4 should give you guys a cut of thier profits. Thanks to you, hundreds of people are buying it!

I do love how hard Brad tries to hid his lack of knowledge about the game.  Perhaps it is he who should take advantage of this deal or watch a few episodes of the Endurance run.  Either way, it's a good idea..

I already have my copy but I'm trying to finish up Persona 3 first. I'm so far behind x.x;

I've played on PS3's Backwards Compatibility... ran pretty good 99% of the time.

Although I did hit some issues with Memory Card, my save would either disappear or the game would fail to save once in a while. I had to create a Backup Memory card and copy saves to it after my play session. Eh, the game was worth the minor hassle.

I got it for £10 second hand on ebay. Because I'm cheap.

Posted by 8xBiT

Play.com has or had it for £10 sealed

@DiGiTaL_SiN: Nope, that's the platinum edition — power outage simulation included.

Worth twice as much.

Yeah, I saw that dude comment about the $30 amazon deal.  What is this world coming to when a website reads its own comments?

Isn't that breaking the fourth wall?

Posted by MeatSim

Got my copy back at the beginning of Apirl even though it wasn't on sale it was only 40$ but now theirs no excuse not to get this game now.

Posted by shadowwolf9

Totally worth it, I bought the game 3 months ago when it was Amazon's Daily Deal as well.

One of my favorite games.

Posted by PositivelyGreg

My save's up to 150 hours logged.  For $30, that's a crazy amount of play time per buck, even if you're not crazy enough to play it end to end twice.

After I saw the game on the Endurance Run I bought it, it looked so awesome and I watch every episode of the ER, I got it for pretty cheap and so far Ive played it for 54 hours, great game

I have a 60 GB PS3 thats backwards compatible so Im playing it on that

Posted by Lepuke

Personally I am currently loving a different Atlus RPG. The Dark Spire for the Nintendo DS.

A word of warning though, only those with old school experience in AD&D or the Wizardry PC game series need apply.

Edited by skrutop

I was thinking of getting it because of the Endurance Runs.  But then I realized that if I just watch the Endurance Run then I don't have to get it.

Good god, what is this game?

It looks a little dull... I never understood card battlers.

Amazon Uk has it for like £15
Posted by Doubt

Awesome deal

Posted by GHT

I've already put 135 hours into P4.

I'm waiting for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kozanoha vs King Abaddon: Totally Spies, Totally Party to arrive in the mail now.

Posted by Church069

Persona 4 does run on my PS3 just fine, I have an 80gb model (the ones that used emulation to do the backwards compatibility).  The only issues I've had were problems with saves getting corrupted and the back and yellow bar on the bottom left corner that is suppose to tell you your location or the dungeon floor you are on is blank all the time.  Other than that it works fine.  Persona 3 FES also plays good as well.

If you don't have the game yet it is very much worth every penny you spend and then some.

Posted by Kraznor

I paid almost twice that and it was worth every cent. BUY THIS NOW!!

Posted by Media_Master

I know too much of the game from Endurance Runs, so no buy.

Posted by Reverseface

I thought this was another endurance run video for a second there 2 in one day. I GOT SO EXCITED.

Posted by Davin

Buy it, now. Well worth $30.

Posted by rargy

Finished it yesterday.  Going to play through it again.

Posted by erinfizz

In anticipation of my soon to arrive tax refund, I am finally getting this game. Yay!

Posted by Bevinsky
@Argus: Um... If by card battlers you mean something like KH: Chain of Memories, that's not what P4 is.
Edited by m_rum

Fellow PAL-gamers. Game is €25.99 on play.com with free shipping. Bought mine for 12 euros from there but it seems the bargain's off right now. But still it's pretty damn cheap!

Edited by iizcallum

I got my copy off Play.com for £9.99. Well worth it :) After that sale, they stopped stocking it though :|

EDIT: I just put that in a currency converter and it turns out I got a very good deal! Converts to around $15.

@Argus:  This is in no way a Card Battler game.  Cards are only used for a stylized presentation of a Persona or Social Link.  Persona 4 is a great RPG that I won't go into because hey, you have the wiki right here on GB with all the details along with the Endurance Run.

I currently have Persona 4 from Gamerang but I really don't want to hold onto a game for 80+ hours.  Hell, if I get into the New Game Plus, even longer!  I noticed the comment on today's Persona Endurance Run Episode and and clicked over to Amazon to grab it for $30.

...Now the only small disappointment would be the lack of achievements. *Ducks under a desk for cover to avoid the thrown tomatoes and bricks.*  Not really to gain points for the new Achievement Ranking on GB, wink wink (I'll take a check please GB for the plug), but I would love to show that I completed this awesome game.
Posted by ChrisTaran

Paid full price for this on release day. Worth every cent.  Might even buy a second back-up copy now that it's so cheap...

Posted by RHCPfan24

Go, please, buy it now. It is great.

Posted by Metroid545

heck yes I gotta grab a copy

Posted by clintlandon

I'm torn about the whole thing. I'm not the biggest RPG player, but I've loved watching the Endurance Run. At the same time, I feel I've seen so much of the game that there wouldn't be enough to keep me locked in to finish it through... So torn....

Edited by dagas

In Europe it was half the regular price of a game on day one. Same with P3. I don't think people would pay full price for a PS2 game at this day and age. €/$30 seems about right.

Hehe.
Posted by angelfan91

I just bought this last week, off amazon!!! CRAP!!!!!

Posted by Teaspoon83
@angelfan91:  Lol, I know how you feel. I had the same experience when I bought Left 4 Dead and then they released it on steam for the discounted 40% off price. Yay for Zombie Apocolypse... boo for being burned.
Posted by Dudacles

It's been 30 euros ever since it's been released here in Europe. :p Still gotta have it delivered though, damn shop's keeping to long to get it in.

Posted by JohnnyDps

the Endurance runes is all i need

Posted by DorianBlack

Why buy the game when the endurance run is free?

Posted by FLStyle

Funky Student has his own GB page? Dude.
