Brilliant. I've been looking for this game awhile now but was put off with the price to import. I'm glad that they have decided to make a European release. I hope many people purchurse it so we arn't left out on anyother Atlus games.

Have some heat.

i want to pre-order it but not this early, does anyone know when the code expires?

Same here :thumbsup:

But i am abit cheesed off with The Hut at the moment, i was suppose to have my copy of Monster Hunter Tri Wii delivered for yesterday and it hasn't turned up today either. I know they are good with pre-orders because my brother pre-ordered a couple of PS3 games from The Hut last month and they arrived 1-2 days before release day.

Demon's Souls isn't made by Atlus:?

Europe will always miss out on Atlus games as they don't have a European branch and Atlas don't seem to be interested in one. I hate importing!
#9
Brilliant game. Just Platinum'd it today after 120hours, ordered the UK release and flogging my US copy.
I just hope it has a new trophy set....how sad is that?
#10
It does have a new trophy set, i already have 2 versions on my tag !

Yeah, what I meant is I hope Atlus decide to publish more games here. Hopefully sales will be good for this game and maybe Atlus will decide to do more.

But also didn't they publish Persona 4 here?
#12
will i be able to connect to people who have the us version of the game?

I think not. Seperate servers I think.
Could be wrong though

So tempted to buy the US special edition of this when I was in London yesterday, I managed to resist though. :)

Nah that was Square Enix.

What is TheHut likely to ship this in? If it's going to be a jiffy I'll just keep my order at Amazon, even if it is a few pounds more expensive.

This looks like it will come in a card type of case, which will just get crushed and scruffed in a jiffy.
#17
thanks alot for this, cancelled my zavvi order

Atlus deffo published Persona 4 over here, (its sat on the shelf in front of me!)

Funny this. Order from Zavvi, now cancelled, order from thehut after seeing this thread, then this morning I get an email saying "we havent seen you for a while, have a £1 off..the hut".

I'm thinking what? I just ordered from you....so guess what cancel, reorder.
How many times am I going to order this before release?

Nice, I conceded in resisting to buy this firstly due to my current backlog (that I don't see me clearing when this comes out) and secondly due to another member's theory of the game going cheap from people realising how difficult this game is and subsequently losing interest.

Logic is there however I hope a lot of people buy this brand new so perhaps Sony Entertainment Europe (seeing as they passed off the opportunity to publish it) realise that there is a high demographic of gamers who like a hardcore challenge :p.

Anyway past my ramblings I also hope like you, I receive a £1 voucher for not buying anything from thehut for so long.

I initially thought that this release would drop in price quickly because a) it is nearly 18 months since initial release in Asia and b) if you wanted it you would have imported it.
However I do know a couple of people who want the game but won't import it PLUS I want the goodies, I missed out on the US Deluxe release and don't want to miss this time round.

PS. The game isn't that difficult and I'm not that great a player as you will find when I eventually play BFBC2 online, it is just that it doesn't scale with the player so the first level is probably the hardest relatively speaking. Oblivion avoids this by levelling up the enemies when you level up...as far as I know. There were very few levels I had to replay before killing the end boss.

Yeah I'm one of those people who would rather not import games, not big on having collector's editions on things either but for a little over £30 I think it's worth it, especially with the amount of playtime one would go through.

Not going to argue (not argue.. too strong a word, retort?) about the difficulty with you especially seeing as you've actually played the game but I think because the game doesn't scale the difficulty from the start may put some people off. Furthermore those who are not willing to put the time to understand the mechanics of the game and by that token are more likely to die often and potentially lose the souls gathered may contribute to the sudden loss of appeal.

With that said I'd imagine the sense of accomplishment when completing a level/defeating a boss is high. :thumbsup:

PS:
I look forward to seeing you on the Battlefield at some point.

.. but I think because the game doesn't scale the difficulty from the start may put some people off.


True. I have to admit that I have a very low patience threshold and a few games have made me throw the controller. Ratchett & Clank: Crack in time was the last one...seriously some of the software faults made me mad, very unlike insomniac to release a less than perfect game (coding wise not design wise).
This game never frustrated me until NG+ (second play-through when the enemies are scaled up) and I actually found that more tricky.
#24
Cancelled my Zavvi order but now im convinced i could get this for < £30, so im going to hold off on buying it....for now...
Heat added btw

Don't know if it's worth mentioning but Quidco tracked my purchase regardless of the fact that I used a voucher - whether or not it's validated time will tell (and frankly I'm not counting on it) but if it does, £30.49 (£2.30 track) for it is one great deal.

Have yet to receive a £1 voucher for thehut but not too bothered after this potential development of a further price reduction.

Hey Scar,
Both mine tracked as well (I made two orders, cancelled the original after the £1 email).
I assume the transaction will only be validated when they take payment but I think they will validate it....as long as I don't cancel!

And yes £29.66 (for me) is a good deal, I just hope that the guide is good and well illustrated.
#27
If anyones interested I'd sell my used asian copy (everything is in english in the game) for £28 inc postage. Just PM me.

Regarding how successful this EU release will be, well according to the guys on this website they are importing it to the US...

i was fortunate enough that i spotted the Deluxe Edition on amazon.com around october or nov last year and my wife immediately insisted she buy it for me as a christmas gift (in advance, taking into account shipping from back home in the States and then not to be opened til Christmas) - and it is still wrapped in plastic in my games cupboard.

however, i don't know if i am insane or not, but i am actually also very intrigued by the black phantom edition and am weighing up whether i should preorder it as well. i kow i already have the Deluxe one, but i dunno - i just have this compulsion to get this european version as well.

and i thought i saw in a post above that having two diff versions means that there are two trophy sets = does this mean the trophies in one version will VARY and be different altogether from the other version?
#30
@ andy:
i wonder if maybe those guys are wanting to import it because the Deluxe version has been sold out for months now - you can't even get it on amazon.com anymore, unless you let yourself get ripped off royally by the dudes who want to sell you one for stupid money.

Possibly but this game does seem to have die hard fans who buy multiple copies, but the real reason I made that comment was with regards to the person who said it would drop in price quickly.
As for the deluxe version well I read that the book isn't that helpful and there are reports of the ink coming off...but you can't argue with the price it is going for now.
I hope it has another set of trophies. The US version has some text changes in the trophies and they, obviously, use the US spelling of some words ie Armor spider

Cold.

Won't work for me "A discount code has already been applied to your basket."

Won't drop below £36.43 :x

Hey Andy,
Thanks for that.
Well, I am still tempted to want to get this as well,...and with all the recent price drops in games of all stripes - especially for AAA titles - I wonder if I am better off also waiting for it to drop after release.

I also do hope it will have different trophies.
Thanks again!
