Another scan spotted on Twitter, this time from Spanish magazine Hobby Consolas (issue 322).

The cover of the UK's official Xbox magazine promises "SHENMUE" inside. As it's sealed in a plastic bag I couldn't leaf through it to see whether it was worth buying. Anyone here own this issue?

Small Shenmue blurb in this months Retro Gamer magazine, in the mailbox section. Also...I feel like i've seen that title before somewhere #-o ...would make a great name for a blog :king:

Sounds promising though, maybe a Shenmue issue in the future :)

I remember reading a thread on a general gaming forum where people were bashing Shenmue (it may have involved one of mue26's heroically patient efforts to promote the Twitter campaign), and the editor of Retro Gamer chimed in to add that they'd once considered putting Shenmue on the cover but ultimately realized no one cared about it anymore...

Anyone happen to have bought that Xbox magazine yet?

GamesMaster in the UK lists Shenmue HD as readers' most wanted game, with Shenmue 3 right behind in second. :)

I took one for the team and bought the Xbox magazine. Wish I hadn't.

Riddled with errors and childish jabs at Shenmue 3 and the "other" console.

Didn't even get past the first column. Isn't his job to preview the games, not instantly bash them left and right?

Wow. Couldn't even get the developer right.

Somebody got PAID to write this. PAID. Games journalism really is money for old fucking rope.

LOL Can't even hide the saltiness in tone for Shenmue 3 not coming to the Xbox.
