Yep, bought myself Persona 4 off Amazon.ca. It showed up 2 weeks after everyone else started playing P4, but I got the art book you know EB Games wouldn't let me have.

You have my customer loyalty, Amazon.

I'm kinda' peeved I didn't get P3:FES from them now, what with their art book/soundtrack deal. It's not the same soundtrack and art book that came with the original P3, is it?
