Rumor: Shenmue also coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade?

Over the weekend, a leaked image from Xbox LIVE Arcade's ParnterNet revealed that Dreamcast's Jet Set Radio may on the way to Xbox LIVE Arcade. This morning, the same guy who leaked that image, is leaking yet another which says Shenmue is coming, as well.

Man I cant wait to get my hands on all these classic games if they really come ton XBL. I've been dying to play Jet set radio again since i lost all my dreamcast games and only have the console. Shenmue is really great game I've played the 1st one for a while was a kid it was something good.

ProjectVulcan3098d ago

Although unlike most people here, i probably wouldnt buy it on XBL/PSN i would be chuffed to bits because with a bit of luck, it will devalue the originals somewhat so i can finally grab me a pristine dreamcast copy that i so foolishly sold off several eons ago.

Unless i have miscalculated and it will force up the price even more. It shouldnt really.

Abash3098d ago

Bring on the Dreamcast classics, SEGA. I'll buy them all

Just need Sonic Adventure 2 confirmed and I'll be ecstatic!

darthv723098d ago

if true that is.

I can think of a few other DC games that should get either a psn or xbla remake. Alien front online, outtrigger, daytona usa, the list could go on and on.

duplissi3098d ago

shenmue!!!! hell frickin yeah, the first is the only dreamcast game i got to play all the way through (never had one had to borrow a friends) and i never beat the second one so id love to download it and finally beat it!

Solidus187-SCMilk3098d ago

That would be cool if its in hd.

You are insanely right!

I have been waiting for Chu Chu rocket to debut on arcade for (what feels like) a freaking ice age!

You would think that that game would be so easy to release on both PSN and Live! And there would be loadsa people who would pick it up! Chu Chu and Wetrix would surely both be instant hits!

Shenmue on Arcade.. I would so be there... Racing my forklift truck around!

AAACE53098d ago

Trying to force it huh?

I posted in that article about Jet set radio and I told people to chant with me saying we want Shen Mue... and now all of a sudden we have this!

I don't know if i'm good at guessing or if I predict alot of stuff. But over the past few years I have noticed when I make a comment, a few days later a rumor is started or something I said actually happens. Is that crazy or what!

I think part of it is I give people good ideas. Maybe I should try to pass that test so I can post news... Naaahh, its more fun to watch the show!

As the title sais "also coming to XBL" does that mean its cummin the the PSN?

Fishy Fingers3098d ago

I think the also is because of Jet Set Radio.

Although there we're also rumours of Dreamcast games coming to the PSN. Makes sense to go with both.

Me, I've still got my Dreamcast somewhere, so if I wanted to play Shenmue I'd just bust it out. Great game though.

La Chance3098d ago (Edited 3098d ago )

No. It means alongside Sonic and Jet Set Radio.

Now lets hope some "Skies of Arcadia" rumor pops up ^^

ndibu3098d ago

No genius, it's right there in the summary, Jet set radio may be coming to xbox live, and now shenmue may be coming to xbox live as well

Alcon Caper3098d ago

All they need now is Powerstone and Rival Schools!

Bnet3433098d ago

Rival Schools is from Capcom and was on the PS1.

mcgrawgamer3098d ago

and that doesn't mean it CAN'T come to xbl or psn in the future. I mean no one ever thought we'd have marvel vs capcom 2 on psn or xbl and no one believed we'd have a MvC3 announced. to quote Kevin Garnett


Alcon Caper3098d ago

Rival Schools Project Justice then...sheesh

TreMillz3098d ago

Yes Rival Schools was a PS1 game, so if it did re-release, it would be a PS Classic. Next, Capcom not to hold your breath with Rival Schools because the IP is out of their hands, because if it was their IP, it would have been a classic from the start. But this is good, just hope this gets to PSN too so my bro won't beg me to play my 360. Why the hell can't he just be like me and own both?!

It will sell poorly just like the rest of the Shenmue games anyhow.

SnukaTheMan3098d ago

Coincidence ..i think not.

-Alpha3098d ago

Demon's Souls sold exceptionally, the sales were not poor whatsoever.

But the dude is wrong anyway, doesn't matter how much it sells it's pretty much a profit if these games started appearing on XBL.

siyrobbo3098d ago

no doubt they would just run off of a dreamcast emulator with only a bit of tweaking to make it run optimally. Thats what they did with the mega drive ports.

ClownBelt3098d ago

This game is only for the dedicated followers and there are few of them.

ps3rulz3098d ago

I love shenmue, hope it comes out on psn too.
If not, iv got both of the games on my dreamcast with a vga box.
Good times.

Elven63098d ago

If on XBLA the cost to entry for millions of people would be low assuming they take advantage, if anything this would only introduce the game to new people with the demo and such.

STICKzophrenic3098d ago

Few? It seems all gamers on the internet want Shenmue. That's a lot of people!

duplissi3098d ago

you have no idea what your missing out on dude.......

corneliuscrust3098d ago

that their own experience makes up the entirety of reality?

Open your eyes, lots of gamers want Shenmue. It has increased GREATLY in popularity since its lackluster release. (as most cult classics tend to do)

Def tossin it back in the ol DC when i get home.
