Dev says Yu Suzuki wanted Shenmue on PS3 or 360

A former employee of SEGA who worked on the audio component for Shenmue has said that he is “certain” legendary game designer Yu Suzuki wanted to release a third instalment in the long-lost adventure series for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

They should look at Squares Success on the Xbox360.

platform really isnt to blame. its the creative teams behind these games and their direction that makes or brakes how it does. If you have a really great team that can make a great game then it would do well to sell regardless of platform.

If you have a team that is not so great and it shows in their product then you can pretty much tell they are just riding the coattails of a name.

Sega did quite well on the original xbox which lead me to think shenmue would be coming to the 360. Now with yakuza such a hit I dont see why sega would go back down that path now. It may very well be a launch title for the Phoenix (dreamcast 2).

That series has garnered so much following that if sega were to make it a launch title, the unit would sell like crazy.

But alsa, that may never happen...or would it?

I know this is going to be an unpopular comment, but hear me out.

Shenmue 3 will need to change the core gameplay or fall behind. Reviewers have already showered hate on "all those dang QTEs" in God of War 3 and Heavy Rain. In addition, Shenmue 2 was not all that good compared to the first one. They'd also need to have better voice acting. They'd need a bigger and better world.

NO MATTER FOR WHICH SYSTEM just as long as there is a Shenmue 3.

Incorrect, was not a developer, was a music composer.

"PS3 or 360" is not the same as "PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360"
