Wonder if the Hd remakes would have to stick with Microsoft or could they post the game on every console? Why was Shenmue 2 Xbox only in NA?
Sega and Microsoft were in good relations early on. Microsoft Windows CE is installed in the Dreamcast so they had a good partnership early on. Shenmue 2 released in Japan and Europe for Dreamcast, but in the U.S the Xbox was the American console so Sega ported the game which I own and had many upgrades compared to the Dcreamcast version. I still play the Dreamcast version over Xbox, bcuz I feel it's where Shenmue belongs. As for the HD remakes no chance it's exclusive for Xbox, every Dreamcast HD remake thus far is multiplat. Sega needs Shenmue to be as successful as possible to make up for the games development losses. Being exclusive to one console wouldn't help that idea compared to sharing it across to all fans.
