Persona 3 won't be making it's July 24th release date.  It was http://www.atlus.com/atlus_forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=116&sid=e1bb43ee4fa445d0980d1e8f53f56d45">revealed on the Atlus forums that the game will see a slight delay in shipment due to issue with the include art book. The full text of the post is below:
Due to a manufacturing error with regard to the Persona 3 Art Book, the title will regretfully narrowly miss its scheduled ship date of July 24th, 2007. This was an unforeseen scenario, and one regretfully out of our control.

Presented with the choice of compromising on the quality of the art book, or shipping the game without said extra, we decided to have the art book redone with a higher quality binding, which will cause a very short delay in the ship date of the title.

While all other materials and packaging related to the game are complete, we were unwilling to sacrifice the art book, and as such will expedite the manufacturing process to the best of our ability in order to release the title as soon as is possible.

We appreciate your understanding and will release a formal announcement when Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 ships.

I would imagine this won't be very major. Perhaps we'll hear something this week or early next. Big thanks to http://www.digitaldevildb.com/bbs/showpost.php?p=3657&postcount=169">aerozero for the news.

It's okay. We waited for the thing a year, so we can wait another month.

According to Gamestop and Bestbuy, the new shipping date is July 31, hopefully it's true.

Okay, at least you're gonna wait like a month! But I need to wait like 3 months, cause I'm gonna buy it in Octuber 2. And like Himuro say somewere else, if you have waited like a year, why dont you wait one month more?

It's pretty disappointing, but I can live.

Yes, I know you're right Emilio, although this is a poor excuse to delay a game just because of print problems on the artbook.
Still, we'll live.

Yeah, I mean, either way we'll get the game. I'd rather the stuff it came with wasn't falling apart in my hands lol.

Also, Stack: I remember you saying something about a video for the game and how you didn't like having to manually advance the text boxes during sequences with voice acting? There's an option for the game to do that automatically.

It's not so much the manual advancing, it just that the few seconds between each new box createss a pause in the dialogue that causes the conversation to sound really unnatural. It just ends up not flowing right to me.

I'd actually rather advance it manually because I read faster than the VA reads their lines, so I skip to the next one before the VA is even done.

Yeah, I skip myself. I'll have to try it with the auto advance on and see how it goes. If the speed is high enough it won't really be any worse than most games that don't wait for you at all.
