I don't think it's exclusive. Just a Kickstarter? Why didn't Sony just finance it? That part seemed lame.

It's PC/PS4

I don't quite get it either. The goal is only 2M. Sony or any other company can easily afford that. Maybe it's a matter of creative control?

It's going to cost more, I'm guessing it to prove there's a market for it?

Knocking on 1 millions door.

I don't have a Dreamcaat, and I never saw a copy for Xbox.

Well that may be why you don't get the hype. 

Of course that's why I don't get the hype.

Bet with Xander XT: 

I can beat more games on his 3DS than he can on my PSVita in a month. Loser has to buy the winner a game on his/her handheld Guess who won? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=193531


I still don't quite understand this Kickstarter and Sony's involvement in this. If you donate $30, you get a digital copy of the game? But then, at the bottom it says that if it reaches certain milestones, other features will be included? So if only 2 million is donated, the game will offer the bare minimum?

Looks like this may blow past bloodstained's record quickly, unless there is a sudden and massive drop off.

Looks like this will be funded within an hour or two more. Nice. As some have said, this is probably just to gauge the interest from the public and Sony will fund the rest. Of course, I'm sure Sony won't mind if it does get a few million more towards funding.

Its already over $1 million

damn, I still play shenmue 2............that was an xbox exclusive, I really wasn't expecting it to pop up in a sony E3.........either way, whatever I have to do, I have to get that game, I've been waiting years and all but lost hope..............................this would have been a far greater announcement if the game was already in production.


^Yes that's me ripping it up in the GIF. :)

for all the people who did not read the kickstarter it says this on it.

"If Shenmue 3 was going to get made, I wanted to make it with the fans. Through Kickstarter, I knew that could happen. Together, with Shenmue fans everywhere, I knew we could build the game that the series deserves."

there is the answer to why Sony is not funding it , but they did want to do there do diligence so they shouted it out in e3 the least they could do.I do think they may of paid extra to keep it off xbox but who knows.

making of post put this under video so people stop asking :D
