Its much less jarring if you think of them as the prototypes for the P4 cast.

I don't mean to blow your mind Jeff, but Elizabeth is Margarets sister.

Akihiko's voice sounds different  
ah and they cut the animated  cutscene's, only because of that I would recommend the ps2 version

Wow, their is so much similar between this and P4 but still differences that just seem odd.

Do you know about Shin Megami Tensei games?  Cause I sure as hell don't!   
Man, they weren't kidding in ILM.  There is a ton of content this week.

AWESOME! 
 
Aww, just 34 minutes...

Ok, now I wouldn't want an endurance run (since I'm only up to part 103 in the P4 ED and this seems mostly the same), but less than an hour for a persona game? That's cold duders....

I guess I'm a wuss, but I am 100% sure that I would not be able to take kids shooting themselves in the head over and over again throughout the game... this shit is bananas.
 
Seems a bit darker in tone than P4 also, the music and the art style is a lot creepier.

Dammit, I really don't have the time to invest to replay Persona 3, but the entire time I was watching this quick look I kept looking back between the game and my PSP. 
 
The characters really grow on you as you go through the game, I hated Junpei at first but by the end of the game he was my favorite character, and probably my favorite between Persona 3/4 (maybe tied with Teddie). Overall, I thought Persona 3 had a better story with more twists that ends up being fairly epic, while Persona 4 had better character development. Either way, both amazing games!

It took me a few minutes in before it hit me... 
 
"Charline..." 
 
Awesome.

WIll get this whenever it comes to Europe, seems like there's enough changes for someone whos played it once already. The girl gives off quite a different tone and there's some major plot changes near the end too.
 
And now I have to rewatch the ER, thanks, jerks.

Totally a trip down memory lane.

This is game looks so boring. So much pointless yapping.
 
I just finished Mother 3 so that may be why.

got my copy today, playing female route. 
It wasn't until i started playing that I realised how much I missed Persona 4/FES after I finished them. 
I MISS YOU KENJI!!!

It isn't that - it is likely because they have to take the TV out from the later PSP models in to the capture deck.  Like looking at digital pictures on a 420p 32" CRT television. 
 
GB coverage of PSP is already considerably better than most sites.

Yes, I'm sure this is exactly what they're trying to do.

cant wait for the BR quick look of this.lol

It's great that they started the QL in Tartarus, instead of from the very beginning of the game.

Posted by SuperKcross

Tempted to get a psp just to play this. UGH

Posted by Crushed

In the PS2 versions it's more obvious that the main character somehow instinctively knows what Evokers do, because they get this weird smile on their face in an animated cutscene, instead of the 3D PSP graphics scene that they had to use for the PSP version.

Junpei is probably the greatest character in the persona series. Also, P3>P4 the story the characters the setting and most of all the music are just scores better in 3 than in 4. Of course this is just my opinion but I feel anyone that spends time with P3 will see that it trully is the superior game.

I wish they had picked the Male MC, his battle theme is way funnier.

Damn it! Now I have to go start watching P4ER again.

I like how Orpheus's hair is long if you're playing as a girl, that's a nice touch.

Not a chance.  At least half the comments I've seen online from people who have played both say they prefer P4.

tower of power used to be a chicken restaurant here in rhode island. Now its a pizza place, their pizza is bomb. [authors note] 'Tower of Power' and 'Chicken Power' are two different entities

Nah, not really. I played and finished P3, Persona 4 is much better.

Alright, it really bums me out that they're all stills.

Posted by ArbitraryWater

Thank goodness I don't own a PSP, otherwise I probably would have bought this game as soon as it came out, despite already having beaten Persona 3. Just so I could play as a girl. That's bad.

Oh, and the music for the school and battle segments are different. I assume that's because it's a female character.

The conversations between characters flow much, much better  if you turn Auto Text ON in the Config menu.

I've played through all of Persona 3: FES after completing Persona 4 and enjoyed Persona 4 way more. It felt like I was grinding way more in P3:FES and I just enjoyed the story and characters more in P4.
Posted by CreativeColossi
@ZenGaijin: Gotta say I loved P4's setting way more. P3 might be a little darker, but I adored P4 because it was more laid back, light hearted, and the characters were a little less abrasive and felt just a little more real.  
 
Not to mention it just played better.

Agreed. There are a couple of things I like better about 3, but 4 was miles ahead in setting, characters, and storyline. Although I will agree with ZenGaijin that Junpei is surprisingly awesome, especially later in the game.

Don't know if I need another copy of Persona 3... And I'm miffed about the presentation they had to lose to go portable. But its portable!

Posted by eccentrix

Now this I could watch for 100 hours.

Posted by thefreed

I loved the original P3... but never got to finish it >_>.
 I like the portable one though, after awhile going around the school is sort of a hassle, so I appreciate the top down interface.

Posted by Bouke

I love Persona 3, i'll be picking this up for sure!
