But also if you buy it from steam/gog they'll take %30 of the money. And I don't know how much in retail.

It's not like this is just some game. It's Shenmue. I want it to do well, and if I'm technically buying the game twice, well, big deal.

Problem solved.


That's what I'm going to do. I'm hoping there will be a physical PS4 version, but even if there's not, at least there's the physical PC release (although PC gaming isn't really my thing).

So retail games only give the publisher %30, that sucks.

I think YSnet is going to be the publisher right ?

I thought Digital was the same thing, a big chunk goes to Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo when on their platforms. Probably the only difference is the loss of a retailer's cut.

Yeah, think the best way to make your money count is really to support yu through kickstarter or directly through pp if/when available, second best way probably digital PC version after release.

Paypal will take a cut, about 3% and probably additional fees from Kickstarter for setting up third party payment options. Paypal payments also won't be reflected towards the overall number of backers and their pledged amount during the campaign, though stretch goals can still be met by adding the donations done by Paypal to the amount pledged by backers from Kickstarter.

Is it telling that they've updated the FAQ in regards to the physical ps4 copy?

Correct if I'm wrong but it didn't say about appearing as an update before did...?


See below for the exract-

Will there be a physical copy reward for PS4?

The Shenmue 3 Kickstarter will only be offering the digital download version for the PlayStation Network. If a physical copy was added as a reward, an announcement would be made on the update page.

Nope, you're right, that's new, and sounds like they're working on it, which if they did, I would forgive them for their current lack of updates :)

According to data over 35% of gamers do not buy digital. So it could make a significant change to the KS.

I don't think that's new (or that new, if it is new). I saw it on there quite a while ago.

It shows that answer was updated today and I think it just originally said they had no plans to, nothing about it appearing in an update if they decide to...

I'm sure someone posted the original faq on here so I'll try and check

You might be right. I just thought I had seen it before. Man, if they do add a physical PS4 version as a reward, that would be amazing :D
