It's always nice to play fighting games with people who won't rage quit.

Giantbomb User sameoldstuff was kind enough to make a XBL Gamertag as a "community account" for this game. The account is "GB P4Arena".

Giantbomb User broadhouse has created an IRC Channel for setting up 1 v 1 or group matchups with other GB users. and the Room name is #GB_P4A

Seems a lil early for this, but oh well. I hug at the 3rd S.rank. Juss sayin'

System: PS3
PSNid: MaceX (lemme know if you're gonna add me on here so I can clear out some room on my friendlist)
Skill Level: No idea, lets say a rank above beginner
Time available: Dunno yet, should be mostly free during weekends and weekdays. Will update as release time approaches

Yeah, it seems a bit early for this but I suppose that's fine.

System: PS3

PSN ID: FluxWaveZ

Skill Level: Best Persona 4 Arena player in the world (beginner, obviously, since practically no one here has played the game yet)

Time Available: Anytime? Dunno, I'm EST and I guess I'll be playing this game a whole lot so anything except for too early or too late in the day. (4:00 PM – 12:00 AM weekdays)

Hopefully the OP is ready to update this list regularly. Threads like this tend to suck if the OP isn't dedicated to it.

I was thinking of organizing a weekend 1 tournament for PS3 users like Mayonaka Midnight's doing, but I'll be traveling somewhere so I'm not sure about that. I'll see.

Having a tough time deciding on whether I should go PS3 or 360. I'll probably be playing with you duders online, but I want to talk to some of you maybe? I have a mic that can maybe go in my PS3, but I do most of my social gaming on the xbox. Still, I vastly prefer the d-pad on the PS3 over the 360 d-pad so I'd probably enjoy playing it there. I guess it comes down to how many people will be available on either system on here and who will continue to keep the fight club going. In any case here are my gamertags for both systems and I'll decided later on which system I'll actually play P4A on. First world problems I know.

Updated: Getting this on PS3 due to all of you guys! But them achviements… :/ Oh well!

PSN: Blazeluminos

Skill Level: Beginner(never played an arcs game)

Time: Probably whenever during its launch month. Dunno if I'll keep playing it after a month. Depends on whether I like it or not. (East Coast is the beast coast?)

I'll update this once I have made up my mind so don't add me for both systems.


I'm an easy Rank 10 especially if you're a girl. ;)

@Phatmac: PS3 is most likely going to be the console of choice for most P4A people, I imagine. It's how it generally seems to be for anime fighters and it is the EVO console, after all.

Skill Level: Beginner. For the obvious reason of not having the game + I tend to not be so good at fighting games.

Time: I'm in Eastern Time. I usually play games somewhere between mid/late afternoon to late night/early morning.

EDIT: In retrospect, times are more useful than time frames. So let's say 5PM-3AM depending on how busy I am.

I have a feeling some of you gentlemen saying Beginner are going to pull off a BnB into a launch, juggle into a super move 5 seconds into the match. Goddamn liars.

(I originally called you all fucks, but I decided gentlemen would be nicer)

PSN: Brodehouse

Time: Central

I've played a bit of BlazBlue and about 20 hours of Marvel. I'll say I'm above Beginner but not quite Intermediate.

@FluxWaveZ: PS3 is the console of choice for anyone who doesn't use a stick. Because you have to be ax murderer crazy to try playing fighters with a 360 pad.

I've played a lot of Capcom fighting games, especially the Marvel games (I have around 50 hours clocked into UMVC3 I think) but I have next to no experience in Arc System Works games. Something between Beginner and Intermediate. I own a fightstick so I guess I'm into fighting games.

Well, that's wrong in a lot of cases, especially for Japanese centric games. This game was always going to be more popular on the PS3 than on the 360, like I state on the first page. The D-Pad on the 360 controller is shit compared to the PS3 pad, Persona is inherently a Sony franchise, Arc System Work games are more popular on Sony consoles and the PS3 is the console for EVO.
