THE SHENMUE 3 THING AT GAME UK

(Chapter 7 and beyond)

Postby MD_UK » Sat May 31, 2003 3:43 pm

Got my reply...

Thank you for your email

At present we have no conformation of the price or release date for this
product.

If you would like to keep any eye open on our web site www.game.uk.com where
all new information will be illustrated.


So... what do we want to take from this? Maybe they just KNOW that it is on its way.

Here's my reply, a bit more promising:

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your email. At this time we do not have a specific release date for this product.

As soon as this information is availiable to us we will display it on our website www.game.uk.com


(Now here's the important bit)

All release date information shown is as provided to us by the manufacturer.

And the rest is just standard company stuff. So it looks like they've heard something, but I remain sceptical.

Release dates from game shops are reliable as a pin stabbed condom.

Erm, nope. It was always bullshit and whoever told phill54 (back in May) that they had firm information from their distributor had been bullshitted or just didn't know what they were talking about.

To answer Louis' question: http://shop.game.net/ViewProduct.aspx?cat=8&mid=321053

Still there, still crap. They have now (in the last month or so if memory serves) removed the predicted release date. (Last time it had been pushed on to Q1 2004.)

Well, I don't meet to put your hopes down, but they shouldn't be up(not in this case) GAME, however respecatable they are, wouldn't know without us knowing. Thye might get the info first, but we'd get it shortly after. Plus, GAME seems to be the only place who got this information, which makes it most likely false. It definitely woulnd't take 6 months after a store gets the information for it to be released to the public.

I emailed GAME UK a couple of days ago, here is what I said:
Game Customer Services,
I was browsing through the items available when I came across Shenmue 3. This game is listed yet there has been no confirmation of any release or even production of said item! Can you verify that your listing is correct and email me as I would like to know if this game will indeed be available as stated.

Regards,
Andy [email protected]


And here is the reply I got today:
Dear Sir/Madam,



Thank you for your email.



Unfortunately there is currently no confirmed release date for Shenmue 3. Please check our website for updates.



Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Kind Regards,



Katherine Chisholm

Looks like they have no idea about the release date, yet they seem very sure that it will be released. I'm very confused :?
