just speculation about shenmue hd, though this is interesting
Mais à en croire le magazine Play UK, on devrait retrouver Ryo Hazuki "prochainement". Dans le numéro 226 de son magazine, Play UK répond à un fan de Shenmue :

thanks. I just found out Syberia 3 was announced so I thought what the hell, let's give my favorite Google search another go. Only recent thing to come up not in English of course.

It's non-news.

What it says is that in issue 226, which is out now, they said that: "SEGA is gradually remaking their previous gen games, and the Shenmue games are naturally on top of everyone's list, including ours (the magazine's). We're looking forward to see Ryo again, and we predict we'll see him again in 2013".

I mean, sure, anyone can say that. Rubbish piece of article.

It's a risk-free prediction to make, because by the time 2014 arrives, nobody will remember or care what they said in December 2012 - unless Shenmue HD happens and the magazine runs a "we told you so" piece. They're certainly not going to draw attention to it otherwise.

I mean, the british magazine are fine in the way that they had to answer something to the reader who asked them that. But for a french website to hop on to it like it had any sort of relevance is completely baffling.

Shenmue 1 and 2 hd versions were reported to be coming to xbox live this year and that it might bring shenmue 3 with it as a dlc content is cheaper to publish than physical media as you are not holding physical media in warehouses.I read some where that shenmue was already written but not manufactured.

All that's been reported are rumors and speculation. Sega brand manager (a/k/a PR rep) Ben Harborne was asked during an interview about the newly announced Jet Set Radio HD whether fans should keep asking for HD remakes of their favorite Dreamcast games, to which Ben acknowledged that Shenmue and Skies of Arcadia were two of the most requested games from that era, but he couldn't confirm whether either would be released. The Internet subsequently exploded with hype about a Shenmue HD release that hadn't even been announced.

Since then, some anonymous poster on troll-friendly forum 4chan has claimed to be a Sega worker with the inside scoop on Shenmue HD, insisting that it's on course for release. A suspiciously lower-tier games website has also run a story based on what they claim are comments from an "anonymous Sega employee" who allegedly said Shenmue 1 & 2 had been ready in HD for over a year awaiting a decision on the future of Shenmue 3 before they would be released. Neither of these sources have or can ever be verified (conveniently enough).

So all we can do is speculate and hope, as there has never been any concrete news about the existence of Shenmue HD. Any apparent "confirmation" you've read has just been the result of a series of Chinese whispers, rather than Japanese announcements.
