I wonder how the hints and VMU content will be handled now. Maybe on the pause menu?

PS Vita lives agan for Shenmue HD as a VMU. Hey PocketStation has an App on PS Vita lol. In reality likely nothing.They will just forget it existed and TBH won't be missed really. I never looked at it and doubt most players relied on it.

Is there anything concrete on pre-order sales numbers? I know they seemed to be doing well. I wonder if it is even possible for a Shenmue game in this time period to sell a million copies. That would be amazing if it did.

Pre-order figures haven't been made public and likely won't be. All we have to go on is the strong performance we've seen in the Amazon charts.

Hopefully game hints will now be delivered in Iwao's voice through the speaker in the PS4 controller. :)

I bet that VMU indicators can be handled as a overlay windows that you can show/dismiss,
thanks to one of the additional (shoulder) buttons, compared to the dreamcast.

However, if they use the Xbox version of SH2, it may be different for the SH2 port.
(Wasn't SH2x using the pause menu instead ? I never played this version of SH2.)

I wonder if modding will be easier now.

It will at least be on PC compared to the Dreamcast. No need to rebuild an entire disc image for every little change among the files. This was already possible on a modded Xbox but PC will only require some extraction patch and that's it.

The really interesting thing will be how flexible the engine of the port is. There will be a ton more RAM to work with so there is possibility for some fancy texture mods. There was not much room in the original releases until the extra demand just overfilled the console's memory.

Might even be able to build some more advanced tools, one of my issues on the DC is the amount of undocumented addresses it makes it difficult to do any major things. With this release we may get direct access to the source.

A Steam Curator with a decent following has listed the game as 'Not Recommended' on account of the game's DRM, despite the fact DRM has not yet been confirmed, nor was it used on older titles such as Vanquish and Bayonetta.

Very strange. Yakuza 0 is gonna use Denuvo on PC so I wonder if he is assuming denuvo will be implemented aswell or has some inside information.

I think they're just assuming Denuvo because it's been in the last few SEGA PC releases. Well, certain releases anyway.

The Sports Interactive/Creative Assembly releases don't have Denuvo, but stuff like Sonic Mania/Forces, PuyoPuyo Tetris, upcoming Valkyria Chronicles 4/Yakuza PC ports do. On that point, it's odd that reading through SEGA's upcoming releases list some are listed for Denuvo and others aren't.

We'll just have to see if anything changes on that front when the release date gets announced.

What's the problem with Denuvo? All I know it makes the computer run slower, doesn't it?

Jury is out on that. You'll find conflicting reports.

The noise after you obtain a move scroll should go to the controller. You know the DO DOOM DOOOOOM noise \:D/ \:D/
