Persona 3:FES is the complete version of Persona 3.

It includes The Journey, which is the original Persona 3, and the The Answer, which is the epilogue. The Answer is not included in Persona 3 or P3P.

Persona 3 and P3P are pretty much the same except for the new female protagonist and new social links.

If I were you, I'd get P3:FES since it includes the epilogue of the story.

Also another difference between FES and Portable is that Portable allows you to take direct control of your team mates.

FES doesn't, you can only give them the basic commands such as 'heal/support', etc.

do you know approx how much it costs? and is it definitely worth getting?

It usually go for lesser than $20 on eBay now. I thoroughly enjoyed both P3F and P3P, but I can't say if it's worth getting both or not.
