So, there's rumors going around that KOEI is going to be releasing Persona 3 in the UK in 2008.

So, I'm thinking, it would be to everyone's benefit if we began trying to find out exactly who is distributing/re-translating Persona 3 for Europe and then begging, pleading, petitioning, paying, worshipping them until they try to include Fes in their release.

That's probably the only real way to enjoy it outside of importing it and learning Japanese.  So...

Maybe its a futile idea, but I think its honestly our best chance right now.

I honestly don't see why people aren't satisfied with 100+ hours of gameplay in the first place. Plus, where have you heard these rumours? If it isn't from a credible place, then I don't really care. I don't see any such info on Koei's site, unless I'm went over something.

On Amazon.co.uk, it says they expect Persona in 2008. I did read somewhere (I honestly can't remember) that KOEI are going to publish it. I think there's a good chance it will - all the Megaten games that have come out on these shores (I also live in the UK) have done well so it prolly will be released.

I wouldn't bother though - we won't get the shiny packaging or the artbook. Plus we'll most likely get big, black PAL borders. The NTSC copies are superior anyway. Alas, you need a chipped or modded PS2 to run the game. My one works fine.

I'll  wish the best for  you UK-ers. It'd be awesome  if you got Festival. No jealousy issues  at all. Just be sure to tell me how cool the extra content is if you get the whole package!

Honestly, I think it would be entirely worth modding your PS2 just to import Fes from the UK.

I doubt it is possible to mod a NTSC console for PAL gameplay, the television resolutions are different and incompatible as far as I know. Unless the PAL units are just cheap hacks that postprocess NTSC output.

--AtlusUSA obviously doesn't care about the completeness of the game. If they knew about Festival etc, it should've been included as a second disc, if they didn't want to do another release.

Nah, I've got a few PAL games I play and its no problem.  At least with Swap Magic.  You can just set it to NTSC or PAL and it'll 'adjust' the game for your display and all that jazz.

Even then, if you get a TV tuner card ($15 5 years ago - cheaper now I'm sure) then you can just run it through your PC monitor, have a crisper image, AND it'll automatically handle PAL/NTSC/etc.

There are ways.  Plenty.  Like I said, I pray the UK releases Fes, its our only chance.

I'm not talking about swapping or the compability of my televison and PS2. . I'm talking about the release itself in my country. Honestly, I don't think there's anyone who'll bothered to download the game/import it and release it in here T_T

There's so much content that even with another Aegis branch, which we don't really need because she plays an extremely pivotal role in the story and we get multiple facets of her personality and major development, it wouldn't really matter. I for one am satisfied with the fact that I played the game for 110 hours on my first play through, got 91% done on the compendium and only maxed out a few S-links. That alone justifies at least 2 more playthroughs to max out other S-links to see how everything else plays out. After that, another S-link and a couple of quirps here and there won't mean much.

Is it that people cannot be satisifed until they know they have everything in the game? Or is it just wanting for the sake of wanting something when you already have enough? I know that P3 is enough for me already, and am in no rush to get FES.

I personally would like to play FES for the storyline, but, to each their own, I guess.

I can definitely see where Neao is coming from. Persona 3 is an extremely exhausting game - almost as epic as Lucifer's Call (if you don't know, Lucifer's Call is the UK name for Shin Megami Nocturne Maniacs). Atlus will prolly just release a transcribed version of the NTSC-US original, hence why Europeans always get inferior copies i.e. the big black borders.

Fes is a curiousity more than a must-have for me. I have gotten my monies worth out of P3 and not playing FES would just be another game western gamers have missed out on. Look at Shadow Hearts Covenant: Director's Cut.

I do believe a PS2 chipping system for NTSC PS2s exists in the forms of disc swapping and modding/chipping. I think you'll have to search pretty hard for it though.

Have you played any of the other Persona games?
