Persona 4: Arena is on the verge of release, and been garnering it’s fair share of press. Of course, it’s not just that it’s the first Persona fighting game, or that it unites characters from Persona 3 and 4. Heck, forget that it’s perhaps the first Persona title for the XBox 360.
See, it’s facing lag issues. But only for the XBox 360 version.
As much was confirmed by the PR team. Imagine the contrast: Most Western devs wait until the game is released to hammer out the issues, but here we have Atlus/Arc System Works outright admitting to troubles.
Atlus has recommended that players go for the following settings – “Custom Match”, “Same Area” and “Good Connection” – for now till they can come up with a solution.
Nonetheless, the game is still a week off from release so they might just have it patched by the time North America connects to XBox Live. So keep calm and enjoy the game.
