24.99 would have been a fairer price but I'm relieved not to see Sega making a dumb decision.

$29.99 seems reasonable considering they're offering dual audio, new UI, new and classic control schemes, and whatever else they have planned (they did say "& more" after all).

As per the Game Informer article improved textures also seem to be on the cards, and looking particularly at the Shenmue II screens it looks like they're trying to split the difference between the Dreamcast and Xbox versions. If they're porting from source code too, it's not an insignificant task and they're asking a pretty decent amount for it at that.

$30 is a steal. I was totally expecting the usual $60 asking price.

I think most of us would have paid full price for this, but at that price point it is even more accessible to the masses. You split the difference $15 for each game is an absolute bargain considering the content and second hand pricing on DC & OG Xbox. Just makes my spending less extravagant, which is a good thing.. as I’m getting all 3 releases & I don’t even own an Xbox One. This will reach way further than any Shenmue had done so in the past. Can’t wait

I will be buying 2 copies of each for my personal collection.

Also, 5 of each to drive around Belfast and just throw them out at random spots from the car window.

The price is low, but it's an HD up-render, not a remake, so that price was chosen wisely.

Alas, it's still too much for me as I'm completely broke this year. As I've already said in the announcement thread...

Can somebody please bestow upon me a PS4 copy?

I'm sure some of ye fans intend to buy multiple copies anyway, to support the franchise. If possible, please send one PS4 copy my way.

I was never a wealthy gamer, but this year has been the worst for me so far in many a regard and I'll most likely not be able to afford this when it comes out.

I've got you covered.

The modern stuff would be destroyed by them in a second. You obviously have no idea how children hospitals work. They want durable toys that are easy to use. Maybe some of my stuff would find some use for teenagers at an oncology clinic or other place where you are sustained for a long time, but I still wouldn't donate any of my current stuff to anybody in a hospital because something like that would be a hollow gesture. People like that need real friendships and real goals, not stupid shit like 2 hours of video games per week under surveillance. Used gaming stuff as a donation? Get a fucking grip.



Bit ironic isnt it.

This is the second time you have came back here after 6 years pandering for a free game. There wont be a third.

Life saving, dude. This year was like a bad dream becoming true for me so far, but this Shenmue announcement restored me some measure of hope. Unfortunately, I can't picture myself with the cash, even if it's just $30 (especially since it will be more like $45 in my country - we always get sick markups on console games). I can't even replace a broken DualShock 3 for a month now, even though most of my games are on PS3 and it's vital for me to have it. You cannot get water out of a stone, as the saying goes.

No, it's not ironic. You have no idea what I meant in that post. Per usual, your ignorance overshadows your enthusiasm for Shenmue. Some things never change.
This is the second time you have came back here after 6 years pandering for a free game.

No, it's the first time. I asked for a Yakuza game before I left for (nearly) 6 years. Also, "pandering" is just your Ill-willed interpretation.

That wasn't the point. Hospitals are not amusement arcades. What hospitals need is highly qualified staff and modern equipment, so that patients can go back home to their loved ones as soon as possible. Children's hospitals have greater psychosocial needs because children and young people may be stranded there for a long time and they get bored, but playing retro video games to one's heart content is not a part of a hospital life since we're talking about sick people who are cared for daily. This whole discussion was a logical fallacy posted by one of the users here and it served as a form of emotional manipulation - argumentum ad passiones. Instead of talking strictly about the facts which had been presented, persuasive emotional language was used to create an absurd mental picture where I kill innocent babies. It was deplorable and I wasn't about to give in to that absurdity. I've written a factual response and there's nothing wrong with it. It was idiotic to assume that somebody living in poverty can alleviate the hospital pains of children when governments and charitable organizations can't handle the problem for decades. If people choose to give in to that idiotic argumentum ad passiones, it's their choice to be manipulated.

This wasnt a debate. Your post above...i dont even know where to begin to fathom how your mind works but somehow you bring up killing babies? WTF? But i can assure you that whilst you may think in your own head you sound logical, you are speaking to someone who has worked in a Childrens hospital for over 10 years, so dont even go down the road of your logic knows better than my experience.

In regards to asking for a free game on the site? Not happening.
