So... I figured it was time to watch the Persona 4 ER... Really enjoying it so far.. Up to episode 12 at the moment..

Since P3 just went up on PSN recently, I think I might grab that...

Will watching Persona 4 spoil any big moments in Persona 3? I dunno if they are direct sequels or what...

Thanks guys!

Also, if anyone wants some beta keys for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier on 360, here ya go.

As far as I can tell, no, not really. There's definitely a connection (the high school makes an appearance, and Yukiko appears in P3P), but I doubt anything major.

No. There are some callbacks to P3, but no major spoilers.

Not really. The biggest "spoiler" you'll get is that a couple very minor characters in P3 (it might even just be one character) make an appearance near the back half of P4 in a cutscene. If you really want to know what they are....

In P3, the Gekkoukan kids go to Inaba on a class trip and stay at the Amagi Inn. And in P4, the Inaba kids go to Gekkoukan on a class trip and meet Chihiro.

Plot-wise, there aren't any big spoilers from watching P4 first.

We'll probably find out when the crossover fanfic fighting game comes out this summer, I guess.

You'll know that Gekkoukan High still exists.  That's about it.  Oh, that and also P3's Justice arcana is canon I guess.

@DoctorSage:

It's not a crossover if they're both clearly in the same universe.

Technically, it's not a crossover.  Practically, it totally is.

This only happens in P3P (and I am pretty sure only when playing as the female MC). Not in normal 3 or FES.

@MoseSSesoM: My bad. I only played P3P and assumed it was in the regular P3, too.

@MethodMan008: Feel free to watch the ER, no P3 spoilers there.

@AndrewB: yea its the same hotel from P3

Episode 100 of the ER has alot of call backs that wont mean much unless you have played P3. That whole section is brimming with fanservice. No major spoilers as far as i could tell.
