Did anyone else get this early?

#1 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -

I went to go pick up my Black Ops 2 pre-order and the guy at the cash asked if I wanted to pick up Persona 4 Golden as well. Without hesitation I said yes.

I was planning on playing Black Ops 2 for a week before Persona consumed my life but oh well. Anyone else get an early copy?

WHAT?! I hate you :P

Since I'm importing, I doubt highly that I will get it early or on release date. Enjoy, I suppose.

Asshole...

Nice get. I'll be getting it whenever Amazon decides to ship it (so, release date). Did they give you the pre-order bonus, too? Also, what store did you go to?

EB Games in Canada and no I didn't get the skin. I wasn't going to use it anyway, I like my handhelds bare, and didn't want to risk the guy realizing the game wasn't out yet asking for it.

If this is happening in America, im going to EB now! I got LPB 2 weeks early

@slyspider: I'm in Canada so I don't know about America. I put the Smarties in the shot for Canadian proof :D

I picked mine up about 5 days ago from eb games. Its weirding me out with the things that have changed.

#8 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19307 posts) -

The fuck? Yo, tell me which store you got that from so I can get that guy fired out of some kind of misguided revenge.

Ugh, well my copy of Black Ops II just came so I'm not all that frustrated. Looking forward to my Solid Gold edition, though.

Completely tangential; but I am a Canadian living in Boston - they totally have Smarties & Aero bars in New England.

I'm looking forward to my pre-order coming in from Amazon =) Awesome get with the early copy, though!

My copy came with a cat

Awesome, we should just make this a thread where people post a picture of their copy of the game with unrelated objects/animals. I look forward to contributing next week.

I would be perfectly comfortable with receiving kittens with my games.

What.what.what!!! I live in Canada but I have a feeling that if I went to the EB that I preordered from, they probably wouldn't give it to me :(

Just play dumb and ask to pick up your order. Worse they can do is say no it's out next week but with all the Black Ops 2 confusion, at least there was over at my EB Games, I bet they'd be confused and give it to you if they have it.

Maybe that's why it's called New England, 'cause they sell English sweets. Smarties and Aeros are English if you didn't know, so them being sold in Canada is pretty cool.

Early pre-order fulfillment and (proper) Smarties. I must move to this magical land you call Canada.

#17 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -

@mandude: Yeah I use the free health care but I stay for the broken street dates and Smarties :D

#18 Posted by vikingdeath1 (927 posts) -

..... EB Games still exists??

#19 Posted by wemibelec90 (1544 posts) -

Lucky bastard. I had a copy preordered for months, even without owning a Vita. My financial aid is taking a bit longer this term so I had to cancel it and wait. I CANNOT wait to play it, even though I have the PS2 version sitting about three feet from where I am right now.

#20 Posted by yesac2004 (114 posts) -

@vikingdeath1: It's owned by Gamestop and practically the same store. We have EBs instead of Gamestop here in the great white north

#21 Posted by rjayb89 (7717 posts) -

FUCKING DAMN IT

#22 Posted by metalsnakezero (2288 posts) -

My Gamestop is great but that great enough to have early copies and willing to break street date. I'm willing to wait for my copy of Golden Edition.

@Bassman2112: they have smarties and aero bars in australia too .. unrelated high five

#24 Edited by FCDRandy (213 posts) -

Canadian Smarties are far superior to their American homonyms[1]. Also I'm going to stop into a Gamestop on the way to the office tomorrow and see if they have this in stock. Surely for such a niche title, they won't have fat "DO NOT SELL BEFORE 11/20" stickers on them.

I really need this "Vita" thing now...

#26 Posted by FCDRandy (213 posts) -

Update: two GameStops in the north Fort Worth suburbs were not breaking street and really really wanted my $5 to preorder.

I CAN'T GET A VITA!!!!!! :(

#28 Edited by seamus85 (116 posts) -

All that glitters is not golden. i tried like 5 stores and no luck

#29 Posted by StarvingGamer (7985 posts) -

I think this may be the first time I've bought a game without any plans of owning the console in the near future.

#30 Posted by slyspider (1142 posts) -

Went to 2 stores and cant find it NOW I HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK TO PLAY IT AGAIN FOR THE FIRST (read fourth) TIME!

*and a single tear rolls down my cheek*

Actually did that with the original, didn't own a PS2 when I got it. Maybe I should make it a tradition and get this one too. =P

I think when the OP mentioned "early", he didn't refer to the Japanese copy.

You should have just put your pet beaver wearing the Toronto Maple Leafs shirt downing a beer and Donut while wearing a Tim Hortons hat in the shot. We all have one of those right? Maybe that's just me.

I'm waiting to get it off PSN so I don't have it yet. There is nothing I hate more on a handheld then needing to lug around disks for when I want to play different games. So if I'm buying it new I'm getting it on PSN and just putting it on my disgustingly over priced 32 GB memory card.

#36 Posted by Garrador (19 posts) -

I did, just been way too busy playing it. Just got done with the bonus summer scene. I swear the boys never catch a break.

#37 Posted by TooWalrus (13135 posts) -

Game tomorrow.

Vita Thursday. I'm gonna be bummed when I raid the Best Buy only to find that they're out of Vitas.

#38 Posted by RE_Player1 (7549 posts) -

@Garrador: lol yeah. I think all the bonus stuff has been well executed. Have you been doing the Marie and Adachi Social Links?

#39 Posted by TooWalrus (13135 posts) -

Hopefully before Friday somebody's posts an actual photo of what the skin looks like on a white vita, I'm still not sure which color to get. There's a kind of crappy photoshop out there but that doesn't help at all.

#40 Posted by Taizy (28 posts) -

Just got mine in the mail!

#41 Posted by Garrador (19 posts) -

@msavo: Yeah, Slowly creeping through them. They are pretty interesting but the best one is Adachi's.

Does anyone know if his requires a jester arcana or does he have one that just automatically goes up like death? I know Aeon requires persona seeing as I had a day I needed to spend time with her.
