Atlus confirms it is doing a little Midnight Channel investigating of its own after admitting that the Xbox 360 version of Persona 4: Arena is suffering from some serious lag issues when users attempt to play matches over Xbox Live. The temporary fix advocated by the publisher doesn't really amount to much more than tweaking your online match settings:
- Custom Match
- Same Area Only
- Good Connection Only
Unfortunately (and perhaps not unexpectedly), this workaround is reported to have little if any effect in alleviating the laggy play issues. Atlus promises to keep users posted on the matter as it attempts to pave the way for some sort of fix, and asks for patience as it will take time to home in on possible avenues of attack.
P4: Arena has yet to launch in North America, so it remains to be seen if these issues will persist for XBL users come early August.
