I say for now we just focus on getting Shenmue III out and completed.

Just watched Sony livechat with Yu and Gio.

Finally a direct comment from a sony official. Gio said that Sony is absolutely a partner in Shenmue 3 and they're committed to working with YS net to get the game done. He basically confirmed the theory that they had to prove some level of fan demand and kickstarter proved to be the best way to do this.

The fact that Sony is directly partnering makes me SO much more optimistic that we're getting a true Shenmue-scale sequel and not a limited/buggy/ugly indie release.

(not that indie games can't be amazing, but Yu doesnt exactly have much track record in his post-shenmue career)

Sony has just confirmed their involvement with Shenmue 3 & Ys Net on the PlayStation livecast. Gio Corsi and the third party production team are funding and co-developing. Shenmue 3 was also the most requested game on #BuildingTheList

I think SONY deserve a massive thank you from all of us for giving Shenmue a chance to prove itself and making our dreams come true. I will be forever grateful to Sony.

Watch Shenmue become a financial success and Sega be sat there looking like idiots....I actually hope that they somehow get involved and maybe help fund the game. Also allow Shenmue 3 to use what ever Sega assets they want. My worry is that although they allowed Yu Suzuki to use the Shenmue IP, that might not apply for all the mini games in the game like Space Harrier etc...yes I know Yu Suzuki made them, but I'm sure Sega still own the rights.

And big thanks to Microsoft for making it available to errr... "Windows"? If it came out only for Linux I'd be lost to be honest.

SEGA won't be idiots at all. They absolutely made the right decision all the way, and always have done. Their stance has always been that Suzuki can use the franchise as he likes, but they'll no longer fund it due to the colossal amount of money that they lost. It's been best for all concerned. If SEGA did fund it, it probably would've either never seen the light of day or a complete mess.

If Shenmue 3 is possible, then anything is possible.

Even if somehow Shenmue 3 doesn't make that much money, they will make money from people buying PS4's for the game. Before this I had no interest in buying any next gen console at all. I stopped playing games a while ago. But I will absolutely be buying a PS4 for Shenmue 3.
