All Persona 5 Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
There's quiet a lot of dlc as well so just buy this when it's half price.
Big fan of Persona 5, but this really doesn't interest me. Watched Youtube videos of it and wasn't overly impressed, certainly not enough to buy it though. My fandom isn't that extreme... yet.
I'm surprised at this too, abit of a cash grab by Atlus/Sega... I personally would like them to make an action adventure game, not necessarily persona.
Yeap I have 5 it’s like 8 hours content and is a pretty bad game
Yeah it is, it’s like a room search thing I’ve not done it yet
I enjoyed this but the first 40 hours felt like I was playing the longest tutorial of all time.
The game is well worth it. I'm 140 hours into it on the last level.
Most stores around Southport area have in stock or available this afternoon/tomorrow
In stock at wembley
Guess again. Brand new from Amazon.co.uk. The Wonder Book bundle with the included Move controller. Had I bought it used, I would have been very happy with 30 months, considering its reputation for build quality.
An amazing game which I have completed more times than I can count. A really influential and moving story and I advise gamers check this title out, you won’t be disappointed. Heat from me!
30 month old PS3? Guess you bought it used off someone that knew it showed signs of dying so they sold it before it dies on them
I've played it through on PS3. It's fine.
That would have been my first guess, but I figured you’d have done that haha. Luckily it’s an easy if overly long boss (lol)
Fishing was easy and cooking was even easier! Adamatoise.... just need 45 mins of “me” time to kill it (lol)
Fishing or cooking trophy? (lol)
Not played it not my kind of thing tbh. I didn’t like the old ones either
Better than God of War?? (annoyed)
three hours in this game, so impressed by the unique art style and intriguing story
90+ hours for me, second Persona game I played and can recomend ;-)
Thanks for the heads up. Ordered and picked up a copy yesterday. Used Topcashbacks £2.50 Bank Holiday bonus to make it even cheaper.
I would say you would get on quite well with it. The actual combat is near identical to Final Fantasy so everyone is British about it patiently waiting in the queue for their turn to club someone around the head. However unlike the older FF games the fights are not random encounters you see a large enemy on the playing screen and when you make contact the fight then begins. Like FF13 or Eternal Sonata. You can choose to make use of a basic but does the job stealth mechanic to get a free set of hits in as well. But if you are caught off guard then the enemy gets a free turn. But there are also other variables to consider such as how the friendship confidant system can passively, at will and randomly affect the combat In terms of the story Persona loves its symbolism and Jungian psychology it is a bit on the nose at times but it adds a layer of depth to the narrative. Also Persona games in my view like to take the extra ordinary and apply it to the ordinary. So whereas many of the Final Fantasy games paint there worlds as mighty vivid kingdoms that could only exist in fiction, Persona seems to revel in the mundane and the same applies for its characters as well but that is what makes more relatable and easier to support. The early game is a bit heavy with tutorial and is padded out a but before you are thrown in to anything meaningful with the actual game mechanics, but when you get past that, there is a lot of game to play.
Combat is pretty similar. But as said above a little more pokemon esque than final fantasy i.e you collect different personas/monsters that have different abilities. But yes, combat is turn based and much in the same likeness of older FF titles.
I feel you on this
Great stuff, I've had a bit of frustration with Argos as they let me reserve this game twice and when I went in on the date specified by them all i got was a look of confusion., no stock and no reservation in their system. I've made sure to order from a local store that has stock and can collect today but thought i'd put it out there for those that can't get to a store with stock available now as might save you the same frustration
Is the ultimate edition worth it?
It's a great game to chip away at. An hour here and there and then devote 4 or 5 hours to a dungeon. Repeat until bored/dead.
Don't forget the deal that's on HotUKDeals for £25 PSN credit for £21
Likewise :-( just spent 200! Hours in MHW so switched to GoW, but hoping this will be next - played first hour and it really reminds me of living in Japan; they really nailed the aesthetic (I mean doh, Japanese developer, but still it’s such a cool style)
I want my student days back again. Maybe then I could clear some of backlog and have a crack at games like this......yes, this is in my backlog.
Just sent you a pm, I’ll take one!
Bit late in the day but PM me if anyone wants a 20% off code (expires today!). I have 2.
I looked and saw that madden NFL 18 is on sale on us store, and also the add on for the g.o.a.t content as well, I couldn't see if it was on offer with the PS+ but does anyone know if I bought the add on content would it work when I switch back to my UK account?
For those who have an Indonesian PSN/PS Plus account the Big In Japan Sale is also available there, some titles will certainly be cheaper.
Cheers for this mate!
Never is around me either. Until the offer finishes anyway
Not available in any of my 5 nearest stores as is ALWAYS the case when Argos have it on offer. I bought it from Tesco late last year after getting fed up of waiting for stock
It's not in stock near you but it is in lots of places. You are quite right thanks :)
Brilliant game. 60 hours in and still scratching the surface.
There's one at an Argos in Colne, if that helps anyone. Sure other places too...just a quick look.
Thanks mate. I'll take a look, although I presume the Japanese version it will be way more expensive.
If you can, import the japanese version. It's at a higher quality and has extra pages.
Just to add... looking at a popular FB gaming group. Someone got Persona 5 from Argos and it looks like a resealed game with no Sony tearstrip... worth checking as it appears Argos potentially reseal returned games... I don’t think this is right if true.
Explore lots, try new things, and follow your heart. Have no regrets - there is always New Game+ if you want to get more of the completion
Thanks for the detailed feedback - I collected my copy yesterday and look forward to playing this since watching Hollie and Rob from PlayStation Access being very very excited for its launch about a year ago but was never sure if it was one for me.... we’ll soon find out (highfive)
The plot is entirely self contained, you don't need to know anything else about the other games in the series (there are some subtle Easter eggs that refer to Persona 4). In terms of difficulty this is one of the easiest games produced by the company (who admittedly produce some extremely tough RPGs). The most complex mechanics involve merging personas but generally that's trial and error and you quickly learn what abilities you need and what weaknesses/strengths they need. Only thing to be aware of is that although it isn't difficult is can be unforgiving, you NEED to save at every save point you come across. Towards the end of the game it can be 40 minutes between save points and it's possible for you to get in a fight where every enemy hits the main character before you can act, resulting in an instant, unavoidable game over (you can continue for boss battles but dying to regular enemies is a game over).
Overrated but definitely worth a play. Just lower your expectations a notch so you can enjoy the experience more. 4/5 if you're a casual fan of anything RPG or Japanese. £24 is a very good price for the amount of gameplay you'll get out of it.
Just checked this deal last night and was very surprised that they actually had stock in my local Argos so bought and picked it up today. Thanks OP, if I could give heat twice I would, easily the best price around for this great game.
Finally managed to get this deal a few days ago after checking my local store daily, best price for sure since practically everywhere else has it at RRP still.
NOW AVAILABLE TO RESERVE AND COLLECT IN LOADS OF STORES!!! I finally picked up my copy from Argos Neath after months of trying to source a copy! Got a spare reservation code for Morfa Swansea if anyone wants...
Wow. This is the First time I have actually seen a persona 5 deal in stock at any Argos store in a 200 mile radius of me. Heat for that alone.
Thanks matey!!!! I've got a copy turning up in a few days at my local
I'm in that boat too... So much so I need to build a shelf (lol)
I blame this game for a lot of things! I blame it for 90 hours worth of game time. I blame it for its value for money. I blame it for genuine "Oh shit, no way moments" throughout the story. I also blame it for being the game which open the doors into an expensive habit of buying anime films and purchasing anything Japanese to fill the void left by this game when I completed it. In all seriousness though, its good value for money, great story which has few swerves and I'm thankful I gave this a try because in my time of trying to fill the void, instead of going to play Persona 4 Golden I opted t play Yakuza 0 and f*** me ladies and gents but that is also a gem
You'd be missing the point of this website tbh ;)
I'd vote hot if it was £100
I bought my PS3 version for £35 and I regret nothing.
Just picked up my last one, paid roughly £11 per copy using the £20 Argos vouchers for the payg sims. I hate having Argos vouchers so this is a good use for them.
grabbed a copy in Cricklewood NW2, cheers
Out of stock in South Wales 🙃
None of the 15 or so Argos stores within 20 miles of me has had stock of this since before Christmas but bizarrely the checker says you can pick it up in a couple of Sainsbury’s shops. They must be including the Sainsbury’s store stock in their stock as well now Anyway I bought it for $25 on the US PSN when it was on sale a few weeks back and still haven’t played it.
Exacty I said that an hour ago :D I have copies in my local Argos, and not even tempted to buy it for myself. :)
in stock now!
Says "Stock currently unavailable. Order now to reserve yours.". I was able to get my order in. Hopefully some stock becomes free soon.
OOS now sad! ;(
Yeah but, as a result of having a physical copy, I sold mine for £55 when done with it. :>
Yes but having a physical copy you can sell it on ,when done with it.
£35 pan voucher for £31.89 on cdkeys to make the ultimate version cheaper if no one has mentioned it yet.
Picked this up. The Persona games are nuts, but you kind of get used to the cultural quirks.
massive pc backlog so I'm done with it. far better stuff to play just got ffxii on pc back to gta online/witcher 3/stardew valley/overwatch
Not as good a deal as they had on the USA Psn for this game last weekbut heat nonetheless.
Game of the year by a significant margin, this is an absolute steL
Thank you I just worked it out. But thanks.
You've missed a further 10% off the base price ($59.99) with PS+ (free trials available) taking it down to $29.99, and a further 10% off with the code making $26.99-ish. I believe both the code and the sale price end later today.
At 19.01? What have I missed.
Worked for me at the cheaper price just now
The 3 letter abbreviation for Japan is JPN. JAP is a racial slur derived by US soldiers during the war to describe Japanese people. Use either term if you want but it is a racial slur, whether you like it or not.
Just got an email saying it's about to be dispatched...
If you guys don't feel like waiting for a physical copy, it's currently on sale for a good price on PSN store: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/persona-5-on-psn-reduced-for-ps4ps3-version-reduced-further-2886485#comment-33170498
Still no stock apparently. It's available for £38 at coolshop but I might hang around for this deal
Best is to get in touch directly with Base mate. People here, including myself would not know.
Any chance orders placed today could still get in?
Well like a lot of places they will send it out when they got more stock and as they don't charge till dispatch they won't take money till then
In the same boat, not a fan of JRPG weirdness... but would like to give it a go. Would take a punt if it ever got to the £15 mark. Watch a few streams on twitch if you want to see what it's like.
Excellent game, previously to playing this game, I pretty much hated turn based RPG games, but this game won me over with ease, RPG gameplay at its finest.
Amazing game . 120 hours and i wanted to start it again but didnt have time. I would say for me it was the second best goty after mario . Wish they would port this to switch as i think it would be perfect on the go ,unlike games like dark souls (which i love) that will be unplayable with the fiddly r\l buttons on the joycons
Worth mentioning, Games Critic Ben 'Yahtzee' Crowshaw the Charlie Brooker of games 'journalists' put Persona 5 in his best games of the year. If you have seen his videos then you know that is quite some strong praise
