Good because I want a physical copy of the game

UnHoly_One3304d ago

You're willing to pay more than double to get it on a disc??

MightyNoX3304d ago


$60 is the price of a new physical game...unless you're talking about shipping costs.

UnHoly_One3304d ago

No I'm talking about the option to donate $29 to the kickstarter and get it digitally.

Nyxus3304d ago

I know I am. Just don't care about digital and 60 for a new game isn't bad at all.

_-EDMIX-_3304d ago

You mean I'm I sure I want to physically own a game vs digital where it can be pulled, removed etc year later? Yes...

I'm actually getting the digital and paying for a physical copy too lol

Spotie3304d ago

And why not? It helps make the game better, and many of us prefer physical, anyway. I'm glad I already gave $60.

rainslacker3304d ago (Edited 3304d ago )

I am. This will likely be a collectors item over the long term, and will be worth much more than $60 well into the future. Particularly if it has a limited run and no retail store release.

Gonna get two along with the collectors edition stuff. Digital is worthless in the long.

mikeslemonade3303d ago

That's good because I can sell it after I play it.

ChronoJoe3303d ago (Edited 3303d ago )

I am happy to pay more for physical, personally.

Digital copies for a system that doesn't allow you to export your own backups are a) worthless to anyone else (can't sell them) b) liable to disappear with time.

I think many consumers and publishers underestimate the merits of physical distribution

ShinMaster3303d ago (Edited 3303d ago )

SHENMUE FREAKING 3 is actually coming out, and you're telling people to get it digitally?


UnHoly_One3303d ago

I just asked a question.

Last I checked a game plays the same either way.

ShinMaster3302d ago

The guy above you literally said "...I want a physical copy of the game". I think he's aware of the digital version.

It's not whether or not the game plays the same on both. But fans of the old games that have been hoping for a sequel that would probably never come, are more likely to buy a physical copy. It has more value.

Definitely the version I'm getting. Unless they announce a Collector/limited edition with the first 2 games included. Then that would be the version for me.

XboxOneX3303d ago

That will NEVER happen but u can keep wishing.

I will be getting the digital version.

iliimaster3304d ago

exactly I was pretty bummed when I got my Wii u with the digital downloads i need the case, same with the master cheif collection just got that the other day and no cases all downloads.. atleast the ps4 gta v bundle came with a case but tlou was download..

ShinMaster3302d ago

I feel you.
I bought the Zelda Wind Waker HD bundle and it was only a digital copy.

fei-hung3304d ago

Yup and it is a backers only case, meaning if Sony does a mass retail release, the backers copy will vary.

At last ^^
Good to see the kickstarter is also rising again

-Foxtrot3304d ago

Next up a retail copy with a collectors edition :D

Sora_19943304d ago

Clearly you're speaking my language lets make thus happen

MightyNoX3304d ago

Wouldn't that be the higher tier? :D
For example, the signed tier does include a physical copy. Pretty much anything above 60 will get the physical copy.

akiraburn3304d ago

I think that since they now offer a physical PS4 version, you can actually get that at the $250 tier and above. From what they said, it sounds like even people that pledged for the physical PC version before don't need to change their pledge if they want the PS4 version, as a survey will be going out later to find out what platform each person wants for their physical or digital release.

And as for the tier, it's a bit pricey but that does come with a decent amount of stuff. The contents I believe include: a physical copy of the game, a physical illustration, a backer only arcane technique scroll, a backer only advanced technique scroll, a skin change feature for Ryo's jacket, a physical CD soundtrack and a digital download version, both a printed and digital art book, 20 capsule toy tickets, a Shenmue 3 T-shirt, one of the four real capsule toys being made for this, get your name in the credits, and you get the trial version (essentially beta) before release.

rainslacker3304d ago

Yeah, they have that for the PC physical version. Would love a signed PS4 collectors edition.:)

I'd love it if they somehow got the rights to doing a HD remaster of the first two titles, and bundled that with the upcoming 3rd title.

SegaGamer3304d ago

Unlikely, but it would be brilliant :D

_-EDMIX-_3304d ago

They don't need to do that to have that happen. I'm sure Sega will likely do a port of the first 2 when they see more support for Shenmue 3 ie the backing of Shenmue 3, is also the backing of the series in general, I'm sure Sega can see the value in making a HD version of the 2 games prior to release.
