Someone grab it quick!

Almost all the grab bags are gone, too, still debating the $1,000 tier...

It was $800 on ebay a couple of months ago.

$5000? No way. Sorry

I had the non Shenmue version of that watch. Technically still due. I can say honestly that it is a certifiable piece of shit. For 5k or whatever they wanted get a Rolex...really. :roll:

I was considering that 1,000 tier grab bag, but I see they're all gone. Turns out when I did my workings out, I couldn't afford it anyways.

Still... Why only add a limited amount of new rewards? It seems dumb to me. It enticed some new backers (or people to up their pledges), but only so far. They need to think of some new, higher funding tiers but not make them so limited imo. I understand when offering rare, highly sort after merchandise, they will be limited, but they should think about what else they can offer that isn't so limited.

Like a physical ps4 copy? ;)

They're coming I'm sure... Just need to hurry up!

I can't imagine the PS4 physical copies will come before the end of the kickstarter.

Besides, it will be unfair to use those to entice new backers (or existing backers to up their pledges). They should just be added to the $60 tier. I'm talking about premium rewards for the $500 to $3000ish range.

They can't really be premium and not be limited to some degree at the same time- not at that price!

And it would be completely fair to add new rewards basically the same as the existing but with a physical ps4 copy and make it $10/15 dearer to cover the cost.

That way any existing backers can move to those rewards if they want and it'll increase backers/money for those who haven't backed or are on the digital only tier holding out for this- it's win/win.

And I'd bet money we'll see it added before the end of the KS campaign based on the comments made so far.

Want to make a wager? ;) All proceeds to KS of course (wager would have to be up to a few hours left I guess lol).

We could start a wager topic- fun way for the dojo to get each other to pledge more!

Haha I'm not confident enough to make a wager, plus I've already pledged more than a sensible amount considering the amount of money I have :P

But feel free to start a wager topic if you want. It could be fun and a way of raising more funds for the Kickstarter.

I really, really do want a physical PS4 version though, so I'm hoping I'm wrong.

I am GUTTED I missed the $1000 grab bag. I've only pledged $250 so far and after watching the twitch video I immediately went to buy it but already sold out! :-(

I knew I should have stayed up! Hopefully someone will cancel their pledge and I'll be able to get one of those bags.
