Jesus. There’s no need for this. Spanish site Meristation’s rumouring that the game Sega recently signed an Unreal Engine license extension for is Shenmue III, and that the game will be on show in some form at E3 2010.
Same rumour every year, this is from last year http://rightnreal.com/rumou...
I was going to say the same thing
This is absolute BS and does NOT deserve to be on the front page. Thanks to TOO PAWNED we can clearly see this nonsense has no real grounds. Both the rumors from 2009 and 2010 have the EXACT SAME WORDING with only the E3 date changed from "2009" to "2010". What is this nonsense?
Sadly it's heating up.
This site must LOVE Shenmue to death. Analogy: "She'll come back, I'm sure of it! She'll definitely be back by morning." A year later... "For SURE she's gonna come back. This is the same day we met 5 years ago. She'll definitely be reminded of me and she'll start to miss me. She probably might even call right now!" :(
bubbles for your research!
Sony Can't Drop This Many Bombs in 1 Month!
Yep I call BS
I mean sure there was the same rumor last year but something probably caused a delay for it (like UE3 was being made at the time). Now this seems possible especially with this news story that we got in April of this year... http://www.gofanboy.com/go-...
Something about this seems too good to be true... I call this Rumor a giant troll on all of us.
This 'rumor' is from the year 2008... http://www.meristation.com/...
Everything can happen, but, nah...
Shenmue III would NOT use the Unreal Engine 3. Back when the originals released they were the top graphical games. Why would they make it on a third party engine, nevermind the Unreal Engine's PS3's troubles
Shenmue III possibly... but as soon as I read running on unreal engine, I LOL!!! almost got me there you devil you!!
Mass Effect was an URE3 game
Lol @ rikatsu getting 16 disagrees. Yall lame
If this was true that would make me so happy! Shenmue series was amazing along with everything else on the dream cast. But this is extremely unlikely. Unfortunate :(
killzone 3+ shenmue 3= boom! e3 win for sony.
I haven't played the old ones, but I can already see a lot of people jumping in joys if this is true. The fact that Shenmue 3 is even in development is enough to make those guys happy. Edit. The info. didn't even say anything about the PS3. How did this game became exclusive all of a sudden? I don't believe this. @below Huh? What makes you think I'm the infamous troll Bungie? Or are you pulling this accusation out of your ass like your post in this whole article?
How many account do you have Bungie?
Like they know for a fact that you the same guy with the same account
Say what? Sounds good and all but why the UE? If anything I find there Yakuza engine perfect for it since the series is similar to some extent to Shenmue. Maybe trying to appeal to westerners? If so then strike one for them.
smooth out the fighting engine push it as a kind of martial arts Mass Effect and actually have good voice acting... it'd sell and if it's on URE3 then no reason not to use the latest and greatest... so hair wouldn't look like trash and it could run the gambit from PS360 to PC... no need to limit the game... I say remake all the games from the start to the finish with this style... most retards haven't even played this gem
If true, and that's a big "if", it would probably one of the biggest announcements of the show, especially if there's "HD versions" of the first two games. And, I wouldn't rule it out, Yakuza is a spiritual successor to Shenmue and those have stayed exclusive.
Sorry but Yakuza sucks compared to Shenmue games. IT doesnt have soul that Shenmue games had.
Let's not get confused, Shenmue was/is a boring tedious overhyped peice of sh*t (and this coming from one of the die-hard dreamcast fans). Shenmue 2 is a little less boring, but less successful.
except shenmue 2 was an exclusive for xbox (well the updated version anyway). and if the runmors of people reporting dreamcast games coming to xbox live are true, then i highly doubt shenmue 3 would be exclusive. SEGA know shenmue isnt a big seller and they need it on as many systems as they can get it on.
The original Shenmue still sold over a million copies from what I'm hearing but with a $70 million budget you'd have to sell at least double that to break even. I don't know how Shenmue II had sold though and I doubt it was ever made public asides from the Japanese figures?
Shenmue 1 and 2 were originally released for the DREAMCAST. you know, the console made by SEGA, between the PS1 and the PS2? "xbox exclusive" yeah right...
The game is Xbox exclusive in North America since the Dreamcast version was never officially released here.
but if it happens, Sony won e3
I agreed with you but i don't believe there is anything like "winning" E3.
If the game is truly even in development in some form or another.
That would definately trump just about anything I can think of. Throw in a Last Guardian release date, and a Ico/SotC HD remake, and... well.
I vote YOU for President.
Microsoft could announce exclusive Dragon Quest 1-6 remakes from ground up using Alan Wake engine :-p
That would be an enormous shock. Like a shock of the year type shock! I shall watch with vested interest.
Killzone 3+LBP2+Socom4+Shenmue 3+Infamous 2+Agent=Flawless victory for Sony. The ps3 is just getting started i mean we all laughed when sony said next gen starts when we say it does, but they were pretty much spot on.
u forget on resistance 3
wheres Motorstorm 3 on that list? LUNATICS UNITE!!!!, it is coming , we all know it and you better deliver the best Motorstorm game yet Evolution Studios , long live the festival!!!!
XBOTS would cry, remember that was their game on XBOX 1?
It's called the Dreamcast...
Shenmue 2 was also released on the Xbox actually. It also was never released outside the EU and Japan for the Dreamcast.
Sega doesn't mind making PS3 exclusives.
oh no i need new underwear.....
All i do know is Sony must have something really big for E3 considering KZ3 and LBP2 is already announced/leaked. MajestieBeast: Yes, but KZ3, LBP2 and GT5 are huge huge games for SOny that everyone know will be at E3. What else are bigger than those 3 to be announced at E3?. I have a feeling that Resistance 3 will be announced as well as Infamous 2. Are these two big enough to be the main surprise for SOny at E3?. I am not sure. I think there should be more. Here what i think will happen. Resistance 3 will be announced to arrive at the end of this year. KZ3 in March or April. Infamous 2 in summer. TLG in fall and then The Agent for the holidays. These are just for the big release.
They are announced for sure atleast LBP2 was i mean they had a presser for it and everything thats not leaked. Killzone 3 i think sony knew the magazine would get in the hands of consumers before E3. I think they have just to much to show this year so they have to announce a few games before E3 so they can just role a trailer of those games at E3. I mean last year we didnt even see R&C ACIT and WKC at the pressconference.
i was just trying to think what sony could announce that could top LBP2 and Killzone 3, and just imagine, an epic trailer of Final Fantasy VII, fully PS3 exclusive. I mean i've completely given up hope of a remake and i hate SE these days, and i know they'll ruin an FF7 remake....but even so. Just imagine that. What a bombshell
A FF7 remake on the PS3 exclusive will be an automatic win for Sony this upcomming and next years E3 as well lol!. Another possibility is ME coming to the PS3 later this year. It didn't see sales nearly as much as it should and EA being EA and them knowing that RPG fans are on the PS3 will most likely port ME1 and ME2 to the PS3 for a holiday release together with GT5. Don't really care if it does though as i already play both on PC. What i really want is a new franchise plus an old one being done on the PS3.
i still dont understand how people dont mention Motorstorm 3 as one of the big games on this E3 , Motorstorm franchise is one of the biggest ones for sony this entire generation
1. Too expensive to make. 2. The original team is gone. 3. People who haven't played ShemueI&II will be left scratching their heads.
1. 10 years ago, yes. Today, no. AAA blockbusters can cost as much as Shenmue 1 or 2. 2. All we need is Yu Suzuki, the creator of the game and a good team around him. 3. Not if they release Shenmue 1 & 2 HD remakes. Plenty of fans would buy them, plenty of curious gamers would like to discover them. The only reason it's not happening is because nobody has the guts to make it happen.
I agree or even better Put Shenmue I, II and III on the same disk on PS3. Would make sense since it's a Chapter based game to release all the chapters on 1 volume. Maybe include Chapter 2 that was a comic book as well?
So show the game Sega. We've been waiting to see a Shenmue for like I don't know...... FOREVER!!!!
lol, this isn't true, the Shenmue games went to the 360 like the Panzer games. I doubt they would just throw a third part exclusively to the PS3. It'd be like saying Gears 3 or Halo 3 was going to be a PS3 exclusive. Even Shenmue the original game is supposed to come exclusively to XBL as an arcade title.
I couldn't found the Meristation link :/
to wiki it was rumoered to be a ps3 exclusive
While the Shenmue series may have been good to some. It really was a boring game.
..is too good to be true.
i would finally turn my ps3 on again :D
I miss this game an playing it on the dreamcast, I can see it happening but most likey it won't.
after all shenmues qte where like heavy rains jus with actual fighting in it.so i could definitely see this rumor or not
Hopefully, but I don't know.
naahh...1st, i dont believe it will appear at e3 and second if it did happen would be on ms platform
The 2nd one sold like crap on the first Xbox. Besides, Shenmue is not a FPS so it won't sell on the 360 either. Yakuza is like Shenmue and already has a fanbase on the PS2/PS3. Putting Shenmue on the PS3 would be less of a risk than putting it on the 360.
"2nd one sold like crap on the xbox" well yeah it did but only cause it was delayed release people just bought the dreamcast version. Also because there were 2 versions floating about and most fans already having a dreamcast, shelling out for another console seemed pointless. It was also priced higher! "Yakuza has a fanbase" Different type of game fella. Yakuza is a GTA clone more or less. Shenmue is a bit of every game type "PS3 less risk" Well multiplatform would be less risk "isn't a FPS so wont sell on the 360" sorry but thats just a fanboy statement. Its like you're insinuating that the 360 is only good for FPS but that's a crock. I think if you're gonna make a statement you best back it up with hard cold facts. Thats like saying the PS3 is only good cause it has blue ray and all the games are crap. They are both brilliant consoles so I would get over it. The likelyhood of Shenmue 3 is very slim. Shenmue has a large fanbase but Sega would be taking a gamble which in the past have not been willing to do. I for one would buy it and I think if it was multiplatform then it would sell very well. Especially as it has fans across all platforms. I think it will be a question of timing too, they will have to see the market for it and this time have no delays and simultaneous releases worldwide. I also think that it would have to be widely advertised and people given the chance to play a demo and fall inlove with the game like all its fans already have.
Shenmue probably sold more units than any version of Yakuza ever did..
