PS4 & X1 Physical Preorders?

Postby Telekill » Sun Apr 15, 2018 5:36 pm

I've been checking various sites and have yet to see Shenmue HD Collection up for preorder. So far I've checked:

Amazon
BestBuy
Gamestop
Walmart
Target

... no dice.

Have any of you found a site that are taking preorders yet?

Nothing so far, although just tried every game site I know in the UK and discovered Simplygames has Shenmue 3 for preorder. Great news guys, you heard it here first, only 40 days until it's released! :---)

In the UK it will take a few days for them to get these things online. It certainly did when they announced Yakuza Kiwami 2 was coming here.

I'd love a Shenmue HD collectors edition. That would be ordered in a second lol.

What's the rush? This isn't a Limited Run Games release or anything, where their meager stock is going to sell out in a couple of hours. This'll be on Amazon or something soon enough.

Probably still working out the logistics side of things for other territories etc so they started rolling it nationwide first (for where it's being developed/published), although I am super interested in how much interest for the game will be gauge in NA, hopefully the preorder numbers are healthy here in the UK but fingers crossed they will be in NA too.

(although I gotta say, it is nice for the UK to get preferential treatment with games for once! :D Even if this is only a preorder I'll take any win i can get :) )

lol fair point, i was one of the few who was getting really annoyed that my DC/laser was slowly dying (would crash at loading screens often) and was very much ready to move onto a new console at that point.

I know the reaction for S2x is quite mixed in general (and I don't think aspects of it like the excessive motion-blur aged well overtime) but it was a huge deal then just to be able to finish the darn game finally (on DC I didn't even reach kowloon yet lol) and I enjoyed all the quality of life aspects (faster loading, better performance and no disc swapping/worrying about crashing).

https://www.365games.co.uk/search/shenmue

If you're from the UK then I would recommend preordering the game from 365games.co.uk as they're on for sale for the lowest price as far as I'm aware.

You don't even have to register an account before you make your order as they give you the option to pay via PayPal.
