I missed the live stream on Twitch (from what I'v been reading I'm lucky I didn't want it), but I've been hearing there was talk of a physical PS4 release. What was said exactly about it if this is true?

PS. I am not one of those "Physical PS4 release or GTFO!" people, I'm just curious because I know adding a PS4 disk would significantly increase pledges and backers.

The explanations and rewards of the new reward tiers are up. A good of amount of old school promo items it seems. Not bad for a person who can afford it and collects the items.

Still waiting to see what other tiers they will throw at us towards the last week.

- Awesome Japan has "helped" 13 kickstarters prior to this (in a span of 11 months), only 7 were successful
- Only 1 videogame kickstarter ,Soul Knights (ex Nippon Ichi staff), barely met the goal of $60k with only 246 backers
- only 1550 backers and $170k for all their campaigns combined so far
- they had no native english speaker before this kickstarter apparently. All of their previous campaigns had significant spelling and translation mistakes

how did this happen


My only guess is this was his best option in the circumstances he was under since everything is based in Japan and cost is associated with this. Overall, minus the Twitch, I feel they do a pretty decent job and if anything this Kickstarter would be a giant learning curve for them in the future.

You can see the video director among the staff has worked with Awesome Japan before so it's very possible he recommended them and Suzuki san trusted him on it.

To quote Schwarzenegger: Big mistake!

'Awesome' Japan indeed...I've not watched the Twitch (just read a summary), but it really sounds like I don't want to :(

All new rewards are totally sold out. Very impressive on the part of the fanbase.

I had originally, while watching the twitch stream, secured myself a spot in the $1000 tier... but I honestly could not afford it. I'm already in debt with school and don't have much left to sell. I just cannot justify spending that money on Shenmue instead of my bills, which makes me feel pretty bad honestly. So I changed my pledge back down to my original amount. I'll still do $30 on the 3rd, but it just wouldn't be responsible of me to try to go for higher tiers. Sorry :/

Meh, not to worry, I was considering the same but it's been snatched up anyway. I'm in trouble though if they bring in a tempting $750 tier...

You just opened the spot up for someone else who will enjoy it, and likely won't be hurting themselves to get it. Gotta take care of yourself first and just enjoy the experience! :)
