Shenmue II still profitable? Wal-Mart thinks so...

Postby Jeff » Tue Jan 13, 2004 2:51 pm

I was walking around Wal-Mart today and I noticed that they still have Shenmue II copies selling on the top shelf. This is good news. That means the game is still selling and they are still making money off of the product. I guess Shenmue II sales arent as bad as we are told to believe. :-k

I rarely see it anywhere. I've only seen it at Toys R Us, but what's cool is they still have an old advertisement poster hanging above the R Zone. It must have been up there for ages, I'm glad they didnt take it down.

It's dirt cheap in the UK now. About £17.99 - £19.99 but you don't see it in shops anymore unless they are game retailers specifically. People need to realise what a bargain that is...also I think that if they had released the first game on the Xbox before the sequal I think it would have done a lot better.

And uh... As usual, the stores in this town doesn't have it. Either they sold it all, or threw it all away. Maybe they sold it all but never ordered more because they are incompetent?

Which is the reason I think I will just buy games online for now.

The more the merrier....and the likely we can convince SEGA to get Yu Suzuki to hurry up with Shenmue III.
