Found 26th Apr 2017
Back in stock.

Yes it doesn't look cheap at first, but stock has been SCARCE due to limited prints, and it's supposedly one of the greatest JRPGs made

Looks like the standard version

Might want to amend the title, it's Persona 5.

Quite surprised there's more stock popping up, everyone claimed 8th May was the EU / UK restock date, based on Amazon - so how are these 'smaller' companies like Simply and ShopTo getting stock before the Big River?

So many great games to play/buy this year especially on PS4. I think I'd sell my xbox if it wasn't for the majority of my friends being on there, anybody else feel the same?

The start to this year for PS4 exclusives has been great hasn't it! Xbox has gone completely stagnant and stale for quite some time, don't seem to want to do anything till E3 and the big Scorpio reveal
They'll be loads available over the next few months,just be patient and you'll get it much cheaper.

Not guaranteed though, stock will be quite limited and it'll hold it's value for a while yet. If you want to play it now / soon, this is the cheapest you'll get it.

I'd be tempted if it weren't for 'Shadows of the Damned'

i would rather get the game earlier to show support than wait months for a possible price drop, i was sceptical about playing £45 for a game but its well worth its money, its not a less than 10 hour game like a lot of games today, ive clocked in just over 60 hours and have just reached half way point, usual with long games i grow bored well before this point, but not here, the developers deserve our money to bring us more brilliant JRPgs and persona games, just when they do they need have plenty of stock

what gets me i have seen people complaining about the price of this game and yet they defend Nintendo's pricing of Zelda!

Haha never played it tbf but you bring up a good point because the other week when Blops 2 became backwards compatible everyone was going mental like it was the coolest thing ever. I just thought to myself it'd be nice if there were some new games coming out for x1 that excited everyone as much. I was a huge Halo and Gears fan but that is not enough to satisfy your 'hardcore' audience.

Oh man we've been spoilt for choice and already several GOTY contenders in my book. My problem with the Scorpio is still the same though, no bloody games to play on it yet. Don't get me wrong Sea of Thieves looks interesting but apart from that I can't think of anything exclusive that interests me, Scalebound did interest me.........Did.

This is what I think (and sometimes comment) for this type of deal - but you can be sure I'll be there paying some ridiculously high price for Last of Us Part 2 when it's available for pre-order!!
Upvoting because this is the best game ever

​Yeah I just sold mine as it's not been getting used for quite a while as I've been on the ps4. Thought I'd sell it before Scorpio comes out and pushes the value down further.
Got 52 hours on this since release, one of the best games I've played since persona 4....

Warning this game will take 100+hrs to complete. Absolutely worth every penny!
Just bought the ps3 version, which is even harder to find in stock! Even the start screen is cooler than most entire games!
This is the second "deal" posted in two days. Stock can't be that low?

Renting this via Boomerang at the moment with a £10.99 per month membership. Great game to rent. (Unaffiliated, just a happy customer.)

Yes exactly same I've kept mine but hadn't been on for months bought a pro and loving all the PlayStation exclusives none of which I've played before
Tried to like this game.....just couldn't, pushed 40 hours in then just gave up, was my first persona game, guess maybe i'm just too old for the whole high school drama story

If you like creepy jrpg simulators where teachers flirt with students then yeah this year is amazing for games. Unfortunately for normal people this year has been dry for good games.

you must be playing it wrong the whole school bit is very secondary in this game compared to the others

The game is **** end of. This is a game where teachers flirt with kids and where guys grab female's private parts and brush it off as a joke. I wouldn't let kids anywhere near people who play this game or any game like it.

way to stereotype people, so by your logic people who play first person's shooters are gun crazed maniacs and thos who play mario go outside and jump on people and animals, those who play GTA want to steal cars and murder people, most of us can tell the difference between a game a reality. hell its the same type of thinking by people like Mary whitehouse in the 80s that thought shows like Doctor Who corrupted the young and horror films turned people into serial killers. by chance do you read the daily mail?

44 quid and its a hot deal. are you for real bruh.

more to do with its been OOS stock more or less since launch so for a lot of people this is the only chance they had to buy it and yes its well worth the price, im 67 hours in and about half way so looking over a hundred hours of entertainment for £44 is great value especially if compare it to the price of a 2 hour movie at the cinema or a blu ray.

Seriously do you have to defend every negative thing people say about … Seriously do you have to defend every negative thing people say about this game ? This game is ok if you like this sort of thing but at the end of the day it is just a Niche title.


no i dont but why if someone does not like the game take the time to post negative things, it works both ways, so you actually agree with how darkpacee stereotypes people who like these games and all i was doing was pointing OUT WHY the deal went hot

i dont like sports games but i dont go about posting on those deals, or make insults like darkspace about those who do like something i don't

but can see it will be annoying to some as you say its a niche title so this the last on subject

Completely different. Games like GTA and fps shooting games are fine as violence is more accepted than pervy japanese fantasys. Its japanese games and their weird weaboo games that are a problem.

Don't worry champ Fifa will be out in October and CoD is out November 3rd so then you'll have some games to play. Anyway just a few games this year exclusive to PS4 or better on the system: Yakuza 0, Resident Evil 7, Gravity Rush 2, Horizon Zero Dawn and Nier Automata. Then what I haven't played yet Nioh and Persona 5. Every month has had at leat 1 stellar game up until now and it looks like May will be the first without a stand out Ps4 exclusive.

Different culture entirely, plus ya know....its a game! Shocking I know. Do you prevent your kids playing with others who play minecraft because they walk around puching cows or digging holes 300ft deep in the mud. Didn't think so.
Why do some people always act so hostile when a game they don't care for is highly rated? It's a bit pathetic really.
62 hours spent on this already and still totally addicted, Im in my 30s and the "high school" setting isn't an issue, as for teachers flirting with kids, etc.. this is all discussed within the game, I was surprised at how adult the themes are and how responsibly handled they are. The first mission addresses the issue of an abusive teacher and does so surprisingly well.

shooting games are fine as violence is more accepted.



You wouldn't "let kids anywhere near people who play this game"... a game which confronts and deals with themes such as the one's you mentioned, but you accept that pointless bloody graphic violence is just fine. Wow.

While we're on the hot topic of "weebs" and "creepy teachers" - take a note of the French Presidential front-runner, Macron. He is married to his teacher, 20 years his senior. Japan doesn't have a monopoly on what you would describe as "creepy weabo stuff". X)
I get that the game is limited print but is that slightly redundant given the availability of it digitally? I get that this is a decent price on a potentially rare game but I have so many 'rare' games that are worth pennies now due to the digital marketplace.

Mine arrived today, it's standard jewel case version. Quite glad as I think I'm the only person on HUKD who can't stand steelbooks for either games or BluRays.
