Persona 4: Golden Premium Edition Is As Good As Gold [Update]

By Spencer . August 24, 2012 . 12:15am

Atlus has a special bundle for Persona 4: Golden. The Solid Gold premium edition includes a set of stickers, protective skin, a pack of wallpapers, a Persona 4 themed hard pouch, and face cover to keep the Vita’s gorgeous screen looking good as new.



Persona 4: Golden Solid Gold edition will cost $69.99 and like Atlus says there will only be 10,000 of these on the market. (Collectors grab your credit cards!) A standard copy of Persona 4: Golden goes for $39.99.


Update: Atlus sent us larger pictures of the golden goodies.

    Time to cancel my regular pre-order and get this one!

  • klkAlexar

    I wasn’t planning on buying this yet since I haven’t bought a ps vita but I want this! Hope the stores list this limited edition soon. 

  • Xapth

    I totally want this, if only for the hard pouch. And everything else.

  • xXDGFXx

    Anddddd now it’s a race against time…

    • Detrimont

      i see what you did there

  • Detrimont

    so is it NA exclusive or is it being released in EU/PAL regions too?

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Atlus USA (as the name would suggest =P) only publishes games in North America, so this game isn’t going to be released in Europe until a European publisher picks it up.

    • We have to hope in Ghostligh!

  • *cancels regular preorder and gets the Golden Premium Edition*

  • Kevadu

    So where exactly can we order this?  I got the Atlus Faithful mail, but it’s super-vague.  Just says “participating retailers”.  Oh, but they might not actually be listing it yet.  So when will they?  Who knows…

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      More than likely the usuals: Gamestop and Amazon~.

  • Scrooge_McDuck

    A stupid question, perhaps, but how the heck do I order this?

    edit: And lo, my question was beaten.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    I wished they would announce these earlier, like with the Ragnarok Odyssey one too. Well, I need to cancel my preorder now and find somewhere to preorder this one quickly.
    I preordered this with Code of Princess both $10 off and now I’ll have to cancel the order… I guess I’ll have to buy it at full price (though I don’t own a 3DS lol)

  • Brandon

    I already have the accessories thanks to a user on GameFAQs, but even so I’m tempted to preorder this. The hard case is probably my favourite thing; the faceplate seems a tad flimsy.

  • Josh Strange

    If they had a soundtrack i would have been sold day one but eh, i’ll wait.

  • r0gamer940

    I have amazon, gamestop, and Newegg open at the same time. Refreshing constantly. Hurry up dam it

  • Cool, won’t get it.
    Normal edition for me.

  • Tales_of_Master

    Day ****ing one baybeh. Atlus know how to release their games with style. There is nothing more I can say about this game that I hadn’t already said before. Hurry up Atlus and give us the final release date.

  • Where can we find this version? :O

  • Normal edition for me, I only want to get the front protector.

  • lorelai4cuties

    so where we can preorder this?!! i cant find it on amazon :/

  • Aoshi00

    If people really want the P4 hard pouch, I urge do not miss this chance.  The Jpn set was on a very limited run and quite rare now, sold out from all online retailers, now cost over $100 on ebay (over 5000 yen on Jpn Amz marketplace).. I was regretting not getting it and hope we would get it in the US, now my prayer is answered :) Also from what I heard, this is a very good quality pouch too.

    I pre-ordered it from Newegg w/ $10 off.. but I would pay $70 as soon as it’s up for order.. as my Vita still doesn’t have a case..  BTW my Vita turns out to be dead after I haven’t turned it on for 3 months *.*;.. now waiting to send back to Sony for repair…

    • PersonaSpace

      Indeed, the accessory set is very nice. Stickers are kinda useless, but the case and cover are excellent.

  • D: No Vita….

    Tht one d*mn good GOLDEN items.

  • But will this and the standard edition come with a booklet like the Japanese version of Golden?

  • neetyneety

    P4: Golden Solid Gold… sounds like a rap song.

    Anyway, this really looks like gold (thankfully it doesn’t cost like it), but unfortunately I don’t have a credit card, so no go. (which is a shame, ’cause DAT SKIN with DOSE WALLPAPERS look pretty freakin’ snazzy)

    • Barrit

      The skin with the wallpapers come with the standard edition as a pre-order bonus. It’s the stickers, pouch, and hori cover that are extra in this edition.

  • now we’re talking, Atlus.

  • Enma_Kozato

    *looks at debit card* Uh…

  • Quinton Cunningham

    That’s really not worth $30+ extra.

    • PersonaSpace

      In Japan the same accessory set went for 3k yen, so it kinda is actually.

      • Barrylocke89

        I think he means that he’d rather spend the 30 bucks on something else instead of this.

  • Only problem with these is I feel like I have to order 3 of them.  It took me til my 3rd replacement from amazon until I got a last story that was acceptable.  With this they won’t beable to have replacements in stock so might as well order 3 so atleast one should be good.

  • Xerain

    I wish they woudl have sold it as a “social link add on pack” like they did for eh original P4. I don’t have time to play through P4 again, but I liked the original enough to want all that bonus stuff once I get a vita.

  • Jake Deerberg

    Wallet…. wallet why are you crying?

  • Zonic505

    I figured something like this would get announced when I ordered it on Newegg for $10 off. Oh well, maybe I’ll get lucky and they’ll carry it with another code that I can use.

  • zferolie

    So… this available at Gamestop for pre-ordering?

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Yeah when is up on Amazon been checking all morning.

  • KingGunblader

    Ugh do want! This is the game I’ve been waiting for to get a Vita. 

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    I don’t even have a Vita and I want one!

    Has anyone found who is selling them yet?

  • Koulamatata

    The minute this becomes available.
    I’m getting it. 
    Oh yes.

  • thaKingRocka

    This is a strangely tough call for me. I usually completely ignore additional goods like this, but those items are pretty nice. The real issue though is that P4 took me over 100 hours, and I think if I were to play it again on Vita, I’d prefer the downloaded version to allow for the freedom to go on with other games since P4’s 100 hours wouldn’t dominate the slot. In the time I played through P4 on PS2, I also completed a whole slew of other games including Skyrim. That was mostly owing to P4’s weird time commitment demands. If I could have saved anytime, anywhere, I would have finished it much more quickly.

    Decisions. Decisions.

    UPDATE: With a limited print run and decent potential resale value, I decided to go reserve a copy of this edition following Niculescu’s example by stopping in at Gamestop on the way to the gym.

  • r0gamer940

    guys you can reserve it if you go to your local gamestop. Reserved mine at 9:07 on the east coast. Probably the first ever person to reserve it. pretty cool feeling

  • Well I am buying my vita for this game….

  • IshimaruKaito

    hope this comes to gamestop so i can pre-order it!!

  • Vaporeon23

    Just came back from preordering at Gamestop. I wanted to go with them since I trust them more with handling special edition boxes than Amazon and Newegg. I’m a box fanatic. :X

  • RmanX1000


  • OatMatadoQuatro

    The Golden cover is pretty good but I think that I liked more the one from the original where the protagonist shared his own space with Izanagi who was not a giant.

  • Simon

    I called Gamestop Canada, not preorderable yet here :(

    • imaguni

       Damn… Hope we get some news soon!

    • I’m probably late but GO NOW :D ~~~ GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGGO

  • Chris Pearson

    Pre-orderable on now

  • Cjs0511

    I wish this was playable on the PS3 because I don’t have money to be buying a ps vita.

  • Freud_Hater

    I called my Gamestop… they don’t have it yet… Damn it!!

  • $24431191

    It looks like Atlus really wants my money again. In this case, they’re definitely going to get it. More money for P5 is always fine by me. I really like these offers considering I like to protect my electronics from scratches and grease.

  • Oltheros

    Atlus, I’d rather pay you $30 for dual audio than for stickers and pieces of plastic.

    Oh well, maybe one day.

    •  Now that I would agree! But If I learn japanese I really will be paying them $30 dollars for the audio. But for buying the japanese version at that dollar to yen exchange ratio…..

  • Barrylocke89

    I don’t have a Vita, and if I did, I’m not sure if I’d get Persona 4 Golden…

    That said, this does look like it’d be one of those limited editions that would run out fairly quickly, and then cost a crazy amount of money online. So I suppose if you’ve got your eyes on it, now really is the time to go for it.

  • Strawberry_Pancakes

    Amazon has the page up now.. But you can’t pre-order it, time to hit f5 once and a while..

  • Crevox

    I will pass on this. Every publisher is going to make a more expensive version for vita games because it’s a vita game and low price.

  • Not worth the 70 dollars at all. Really it’s 30 bucks for a pouch, face cover, and stickers. If they threw in maybe a CD, or changed the pack to the same as the Famitsu Pack, then it would be worth the money. Or hell, even add in the stuff from the Famitsu pack.

    •  The pouch and the face cover by themselves cost $30. Face cover costs $13. Pouch costs $20. Though you can’t get the pouch for cheaper depending where you buy it. I’m talking about the non branded Persona of course.

  • Not worth it at all really. For $5-10 more it might be worth it. You are getting 3 things. Stickers – $0.50. Case – $5, $2-3 for face plate or whatever.

    • Please tell me where I can get that face plate for $2. I’ll go buy it immediately. The face plate costs $13 USD. A similar case costs $20 USD. Therefore $33 USD. Throw in the sillicon and the stickers and you’re paying less than paying those items individually.

      • I was talking about the price it would actually most likely cost them to make it. And I don’t know what this silicon you are talking about is.

        • The silicon is the protective skin. The skin is made out of silicon. Like that material they use for the skins of the wii controllers. But you could count it out anyway since you would get it free for preordering the regular edition.

          Well I don’t know how much cases and face plates cost to make. But I know what they cost for a good price like Amazon. Hori is known for making good products and this products are only available from Japan. Making the shipping more expensive. 

  • Solomon_Kano

    This is tempting since I like that case, but not “let’s spend another $30!” tempting. I’ll stick to the standard and use that $30 I’ll save on another Persona game instead.

  • Testsubject909

    I’ve been double checking, short end of the stick for us here in Canada.

    The product is being sold only on US shops and states that for this item it cannot ship to Canada.

  • Clifford Michael

    I don’t care how much it costs. My pre-order is in and paid in full!

  • I see it on Amazon but only from other sellers.  Did Amazon actually have it on sale and it sold out or are sellers taking advantage of the fact that the page is up but Amazon isn’t taking pre-orders yet?

    • Enma_Kozato

      It sold out. A few hours after getting my order in it wasn’t available anymore.

  • has it up for pre-order! YES CANADA I LOVE YOU! I just pre-ordered mine and in full~ I can’t sleep anymore… I”m too happy~ 1:00AM
