Despite the existence of The King of All Cosmos's greatest practical joke
, I like to think that the Atlus staff does pay attention to us forum goers every once in a while, and sometimes, what we say or do here might be on the tip of their tongues while meet-ifying or something.
Since Persona 4 Arena is still months away
, I figure this would be a good time to fire up a thread and let them know what you guys would want to see out of this game's limited edition. And who knows, they just might care enough to...care
Now, you can just start listing crap if you want to, but if you want to make this more organized, you need to provide them with options that are worth considering.
There's a reason why none of them take Game Suggestions seriously: You guys make unrealistic requests.
So, be more reasonable this time around!
To help whittle things down, there's roughly four categories that Atlus partakes in when it comes to bonus goodies:
This is the pre-order stuff, mostly. Artbooks, soundtracks, pins or buttons
. Whatever. Small stuff, that's just enough to be neat.
The Limited Edition:
This is generally the above, but with a lil more bang. The soundtracks feature more than just a few select songs, the artbooks are thicker, and it usually has some sort of special packaging, like Demon's Souls. That said, it still isn't quite that extravagant. These are usually within the $70 range.
The Deluxe Edition:
This is usually the crazier stuff, like Catherine. Anything and everything that makes sense within the context of the game can come with these. These are within the $80 range.
The Every-Copy-Is-Special Edition:
This is the one that Atlus actually likes to play around with the most. Every first-print copy of their game is special in some way. It might be something very simple, like a bonus soundtrack disc, ala Persona 4. Might be a full soundtrack. Or it might be something crazy like the first-print-run of Devil Summoner 2. These are always priced within their standard range - so in P4A's case, $60.
Now, don't just pick one of these.
Say what you'd like to see for all four, so that way, the options are more varied with the likelihood one of them making it to the top, so to speak.
Anyway, I don't really have any suggestions myself, but I wanna know what you guys want. And I'm pretty damn sure if you guys keep it sensible, the guys inside the cubicles might take note...
Beware the box cutter!
